FrankSG: A simple solution to the problem of intrusion on someone's privacy / property. When I was young and hunting with my father, we would always approach the owner of a farm and ask permission to hunt on or near their property. At the worst they would say no, but 95% of the time we got permission, and made a friend by introducing ourselves. Most of the time they would even help us locate a good position for hunting. A little respect and a handshake can go a long way. :-)

endofoto: Full frame camera and lens was this small, after 60 years or so FF cameras are bigger, heavier. This is a shame. Made in occupied Japan is a different dilemma, thousands year old japanese culture became USA toy, what a shame.

They shouldn't have gotten all rowdy then, should they?

HowaboutRAW: I guess this is like those Sony RX100 V samples from 10 days ago. Or was it the A6500 examples? Except in both those cases those are known sensors and known lenses.

Wow,, 3 sentences without dribbling-on about your sad NX-1. Nice to see you are growing as a person.

rfsIII: As always, Pentax makes the nicest lenses, why would you buy any other brand?
But please spare us any more of your patriarchy-promoting, capitalism-abetting, pro-dam porn (https://www.dpreview.com/sample-galleries/7034057932/pentax-55-300mm-f4-5-6-3-ed-plm-wr-re-sample-gallery/1816586547). Dams are an abomination and prevent the free migration of salmon which is a much more urgent problem than any creative whim you might be needing to indulge.

Swing and a miss. Seriously, what are you babbling about?

Considering the camera, it's outstanding,, and that's from someone who hates Apple.

ChrClowes: They'll sell like hot cakes - and the sad irony is that all the brilliant innovation by the likes of Fuji, Olympus, etc will be swept under the rug in one swoop. Those five letters are like a magnet for the everyday Joe - and this is the biggest magnet in the shop (though not the best, nor the most innovative...but did it ever have to be?)

estarkey: Wow! Canon isn't playing this time! I really took note to the 4:3 aspect ratio and IBIS. They have finally took the mirrorless challenge (and m43) seriously!

Wow,, you guys are all experts on a specific feature you've never used, on a camera you've never touched,, and in fact, didn't know existed until 10 minutes ago. Impressive!

cdembrey: I nave no interest in a M5 w/18-150mm zoom lens. Where are the wide primes??

Both Sony and Fuji have primes available (both OEM and 3rd Party) starting at 12mm. Meh!

But the pics look great

Mailman. You just got put nicely in your place. You seem like a 'last-word' kinda fellow, but seriously, consider shutting up.

scastle: Nowhere in the above blurb does it say that it uses Fujifilm Instax Mini film. The word "film" is in fact used once, but I had to reread it to realize that it wasn't a slip. Uh, I thought this site was Digital Photography Review? What's digital about this?

Fascinating, fascinating,, no wait,, that other word,,, 'tedious'.

In reply to:

Peak freak: What the M3 does have in its advantage, is the EF-M 11-22 at about $400.
For under a grand you get a lightweight, high quality wide angle shooter.
Strikes me as an excellent hiking combo.
(I have an EF-S 10-18 for my SL-1, but often find the equivalent 28mm just a bit too short for my single lens desires.)

Agreed,, the EF-M 11-22mm is a superb piece of glass.

In reply to:

Dave Oddie: So this will have a f.o.v equivalent of 52mm on APS-C and 70mm on m4/3.

Useless focal lengths IMO. Yes I know some people like 50mm "standard" lens but it should really be about 42mm equiv and 70mm equiv on m43 is neither one thing nor the other.

Why they don't make a 28mm or 30mm that would actually function as a true standard for Aps-c and a 20mm for m43?

M43 is always short changed when manufacturers do this. Sticking a m43 mount on the end of lens with a focal length clearly designed for aps-c is a cheap way of tapping into another market but if I were a m43 user I would not want this lens. Though slower, lenses like the 45mm (so 90mm eqiv f.o.v) are much more sensible.

Who took the jam out of this clown's donut?

What are you dribbling about rfs? The 11-22mm EF-M is an astonishing lens,, the 22mm f2 is no slouch either.

Richard Murdey: Hey dpreview,

Maybe you should spend a little time coming up with some editorial policy on linking to photos obtained illegally.

I mean I'm guessing that if I snuck into a US navel base and took some photos of, I dunno, nuclear missiles being loaded onto a submarine, you probably would be reluctant to link to that content. How about pics from my last safari where I poached some nice rhino horns?

While at first glance it might seem that urban explorers who are trespassing on what is clearly derelict property aren't doing anything wrong, personally I find the present situation of illegally photographing abandoned Japanese communities in the Fukushima exclusion zone (while making crass comments about how he is amazed people hadn't already stolen the laptops and cash he came across) to be offensive on any number of levels, and I would really prefer you didn't give him a platform.

Please think about it. Thanks...

Hey Dick, this is a website about photography, those are photographs, zip it.

He was looking to tell a story using his camera. I'd say he did that.
