On article Best cameras under $2000 (83 comments in total)

With all the firmware updates, the XPro2's C-AF should be as good as the XE3 and the XT2. So why hasn't DPR updated its review to reflect that, and instead, DPR keeps repeating the original review's criticism of the C-AF? That is misinformation.

ozturert: This phone is more expensive than S8 Plus in Norway. Is it really worth it? And Note 8 is only 100 Euros more. Is Huawei really worth the cost? I am thinking to upgrade my S7 Edge to Note 8 but probably will wait for S9 now.

If you want to have fake bokeh, go with the Mate. I have the S8+, and I love it. I just wish it had the bokeh mode like my Huawei Honor 8 did.

armanius: If I want higher apertures, I just stop down the aperture. Am I missing something about this "variable aperture"?

Thanks for the info. I guess the manual control is "faux" then. I had no idea. Thanks!

Peptobismal must be sold out! The amount of heartburn caused by a silver award is burning up!

Given that no one has complained about the Fuji XT2 not being a part of the 4-way comparison chart, I will do so on behalf of all Fuji lovers. C'mon DPR, where's the XT2? :)

Takes away from being stealthy.

Interesting. I hope companies keep pushing the technology.

Vladilena: Sad to see that the selection for the 2017 buyer's guide is almost the same as 2016 one.

Yeah. Seems to be a dying category. Where is the Canon GX7 mk iii?

In reply to:

Pritzl: Your LX100 pros/cons list matches mine exactly. I am still hopeful that there is an LX200 down the line that adds the articulating screen and ND filter. Flash and touchscreen would be nice but not critical. The camera is already too large to be truly pocketable so I don't expect that a few extra mm for an articulating screen would be an issue.

Add a manual zoom instead of power.

I would love to see a Panasonic LX100 with a manual zoom, and flip LCD. That would be a perfect camera for me.

armanius: iPhone X? Takes away from the list's credibility.

It's my opinion it should not be a gadget of the year. But it's a fact that the features now being offered in the iPhone X have long been present in Android phones. And this is coming from an iPhone user.

I am sure that smartphones are used for photo purposes far more than any fancy $3000 camera. However, the iPhone X is far from being anything worthy of a "gadget of the year" award as it is nothing more than Apple finally catching up with Android by offering technology that Android phones have had for the last 2-3 years, and then charging its loyal customers a premium for it.

Improvements appear to be significant. Can't wait to see a detailed review. Glad to see Sony pushing the tech boundaries.
