I really look forward to the waterproof feature.

I thought about getting a underwater camera or housing for my upcoming Bahamas trip (beach, snorkeling and maybe scuba diving). But now I can do it with my phone! We will start seeing underwater photos from the iPhone. How cool is that!

On article Rebel in your pocket: Canon EOS M3 Review (464 comments in total)
In reply to:

zerlings: I have used the M3 for 6 months, and have used various mirrorless before (EM-5, sony Nex-5N). I have received many compliments on the pictures I took with the M3, but not so much on the other mirrorless.

I think it's to do with the 'Canon color'. The pictures, whether beach, forest or portraits, are just pleasant to look at. They are somewhat lively. My other Canon 5D3 and G7X got similar compliments too.

Even my Sony A7ii + Leica 35mm f/2 doesn't get as much compliments (but then I'm still learning this combo).

On article Sony Alpha 7R II Review (2165 comments in total)

I have the A7II but don't like it much (e.g. control, colors, AF speed). The A7RII seems a very advanced camera but is it much different to the A7II?

I would like the Sony RX1RII, but it is too expensive to me. Any chance there will be a non-R version? the mark I has the non-R version which is $500 cheaper.

On article Second time lucky? A closer look at Sony's new RX1R II (542 comments in total)
In reply to:

zerlings: I am disappointed that it doesn't touchscreen and touch shutter. Sony could have easily installed it but they chose not to. I'm not looking for smartphone but this is a compact camera so it's supposed to be convenience and easy to use. I found touchscreen and touch shutter in the EM-5 and G7X tremendously useful. In my experience it is way faster and more accurate than other methods. Not to mention picture browsing, focus checking, manual selection etc...

I would agree if having touchscreen means sacrificing analog (e.g. Leica T) but there are many good cameras having both (EM-5).

I like it. Cute!

For someone who wants a M-quality lens with autofocus on a FF body, this is the only option.

Nice! Maybe I won't wait for the A7III or RX-2 after all...

I have the OMD-EM5 + Panasonic 24-70 lens, while I like it but it seems like the LX-100 beats this combo in everyway (slightly longer zoom, bigger aperture, smaller package, cheaper, wi-fi and built-in flash).

The AW120 maybe THE camera I want for scuba diving. I just got an open water scuba diving license and the deepest I have went is 20m so far. I hate those hardcase which is expensive, bulky and have to be taken on/off everytime.

On article Olympus m.Zuiko 17mm F1.8 first impressions and samples (255 comments in total)

I have this lens and I love it!

It is small, tactile and super fast AF with the OM-D.
I use the touchscreen as shutter and it auto-focuses almost instantaneously.

I think this lens is sharp, but because the bokeh is not very shallow (can't expect too much as it is a 17mm 1.8, not 45mm 1.8), the subject doesn't stand out as much and hence makes it look relatively less sharp.
