EduPortas: With so many leaks on this site you'd think it's directed to plumbers.

With this volume of leaks, the plumbing bill will cost more than the body itself.

On article Panasonic announces development of Lumix DC-GH6 (82 comments in total)
In reply to:

MCassidy: I'll never understand why Panasonic released the GH5mk2...
This was a missed opportunity to retain the last remaining, faithful MFT users.
No wonder so many are migrating to Sony, Fuji and Canon. I've owned several generations of MFT from Panasonic and Olympus and they were certainly fantastic but Panasonic really missed their mark with the GH5mk2.
So frustrating...

Maybe with the on-going semi-conductor issues globally, this is the best option for Panasonic.

On article Sony introduces compact FE 14mm F1.8 GM ultra-wide lens (211 comments in total)
In reply to:

RichardLarssen: People who say this is large and bulky for an 14mm F/1.8 FF lens must clearly new to the camera Industry, or just plain trolls from another DPR forum section.

This lens is small and compact for a 14mm F/1.8 actually. Now move along

Or they actually never used one before and believes that a 14mm F1.8 is the same as 50mm F1.8 (from the go-old DSLR days)

On article First impressions of the Sony 50mm F1.2 GM (341 comments in total)
In reply to:

roweraay: There was already the excellent Sigma 35mm f/1.2 DG DN (lens designed specifically for mirrorless bodies, including Sony FE) available, which had blown the mount related myth, out of this planet, a while back.

This new 50/1.2 just nailed that coffin a bit tighter.

I get it, Sony should had started with a 1 m diameter mount. It would had been perfect.

Seriously, are all these theoretical discussion "if Sony had been smarter to had started off with 3mm more". I am definitely not knowledgeable to be able to name the perfect diameter. Perhaps there is none because the other brands had all chosen a different diameter?

Was all these because one of the competing brand made a remark? Was that correct? Now that Sony could produce an equivalent (subjective opinion because of individual's need may alter this moderately).

What's point of this diameter? Equally, I could had flamed the other companies for being lazy and does not have the capability of exploiting or leveraging on the bigger throat. Do I know what I am talking... NOT ME.

On article Sony announces new ultra-fast FE 50mm F1.2 GM lens (537 comments in total)
In reply to:

MediaArchivist: Fake news! We all know a FF f/1.2 lens on E mount is impossible because the mount is too small. This has been proven time and time again by users on this very site, and you know they are correct because they use, like, math and stuff.

I am sure we will have a smart troll somewhere to point out that it is actually T1.351 and therefore should had been labelled as F1.4, etc... ;)

ncsakany: An increasing share of a diminished market. Not a good situation to be in, that’s for sure.

I presume decreasing share in a diminished market is a worse situation to be in.

bgbs: This announcement is so bad for Canon. As for Nikon, this announcement provides a good insight as to whats cooking in terms of sensor technology.

Perhaps someone knowledgeable can comment further... if Nikon uses Sony on-sensor AF system, would Nikon then be able to be quantum leap ahead of Sony? Or would like be more like ISO and DR, i.e. "about the same"

Canon execs would not sleep well counting the number of L lens they will sell to ex-Nikon users

On article Sony drops list price of Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 (198 comments in total)
In reply to:

Gonini: What a coward and cheap move by Sony! So all of their cameras are overpriced? Proof that the company does not stand behind their products. Those defending the price cut (and sony) probably did not buy this camera at its overpriced original price!

Maybe they have a mountain of stock in the warehouse. Better for Sony to get $ 998 while they still can than to hold out for the $ 499 deal?

On article Sony Alpha 7 Review (1598 comments in total)
In reply to:

MattLangley: A little surprised, this seemed a bit excessively negative. Some of the complaints are perfectly valid and reflected by other reviewers... Though I'm surprised with the issues the reviewer had with the controls. Most reviews I've seen love the controls and placement or have very minor complaints (such as the video button etc). In personal use I have found the controls to be great and I don't accidentally hit any of the controls.

I think it's a case of needing to adapt to the controls and once you do you find their placement works quite well (not perfect but quite well). Other reviews seem to echo this as well.

Again some valid critiques but it seems that there was a lot of nitpicking on things that boil down to adaptation or preference that weighed heavier than it should have.

Definitely agree. I think the reviewers are reviewing the camera through a "confused" DSLR user... "We like the small, light.... body" but "exposure compensation dial is too easy to bump .... The grip feels a little too unsubstantial..." how do we square the two comments?

The controls on NEX & a7 is definitely a steep learning curve even for someone coming over from Alpha DSLR. But after a bit of effort, the customizable buttons are a godsend: I managed to set up most of important functions using them.

I wait for the reviewers to spend more time with the a7 and come back in a couple of months and re-evaluate the comments. Overall other critiques are fair.
