Since I don't know how to edit or delete my posts, I'll start again, since my previous post made no sense due to cutting and pasting. What I was trying to say was that the lens looks great but is disappointingly big, given the m43 format. Apologies for confusing first sentence earlier.

No, they won't "blow up," but the focal length range of this lens, but "sonics" has a good point. The compactness aspect of m43 is undermined when an otherwise sweet lens is so large that it almost dwarfs the body.

Isoruku: No U1, U2, etc settings? Can that be right? (Tell me it's there and I missed it.)

I didn't say anything about scene mode. But the ability to save settings and access them in an instant (as on the Canon 7D II and 5D Mk III, which are no slouches) is a very convenient feature and ought to be offered on "serious bodies."

On article Nikon D7200 Review (644 comments in total)

I'm impressed. This could be the first Nikon CMOS sensor to render reds as red in jpeg instead of orangey-red. Very nice to see.

On article Nikon announces SB-500 Speedlight for stills and video (26 comments in total)

Dumb question, but can I use the SB 500 as a slave (either with the pop-up as a master or some other external flash)?

SaulMDetofsky: It's not the camera, it's the person behind the camera.

So Saul, I assume you will never read DP Review again, is that right?

jake werner: I can't take cameras without viewfinders seriously.... even Nikon. Just not practical on bright days. When are the manufactures going to learn.

I agree with Jake. While the P7700 seems on paper like a great camera, the lack of a VF really deters me from considering it. Nikon sees that consumers love live view and then deletes VF's from an otherwise very useful pocket camera.
