On article Lens shootout: Sony RX10 III destroys the competition (485 comments in total)
In reply to:

Grig: I don't see destruction compared to FZ1000... Sorry... May be good idea to change it to "outperforms" or something like it if you really think so, but not destroys for sure... But to me FZ Leica lens is sharper and less CA... Especially on the sides at F8 at 400mm

Sorry Barney, I usually side with you. "Destroy" does tend toward "professional wrestling" descriptions. Besides, a 2-3 year old $800 bridge should be "destroyed" by a $1500 new tech piece.

In reply to:

justmeMN: Oh darn, I thought that "one for the history books" would mean a week in which DRP didn't mention a Sony camera. :-)

don't be angry that Sony is active/hungry
Blame your own C&N for their no fun, high $ black boxes
Glad to see that Pentax/Ricoh is active.
K-1 looks like a lovely cam and I'm saving for one. More glass please!

Remember- if we are only stuck with two.
we get right wing nut jobs and left wing nut jobs.
That's why I lean Pentax, Oly and Panny

mosc: Very pretty. I agree $1,200 seems like a lot for a m43 body. 7dmk2's $1,500 and Samsung NX1's even cheaper. A good bit more than things like the 70D, D7200.

Very pretty though. Love the control layout. Wow.

Mosc,
There is so much parity with these cameras that they are resorting to form over function.
This one doesn't look comfortable in the hand for an extended shoot.
I like the 5 axis but these days and at that price point a 4/3 should have better video and focus speed.
I wonder if they are going after the frugal Leica shopper.
How many of those are there?

On article Here at last: Nikon announces D500 (1175 comments in total)

860 grams / 1.9# seems fun to lug around ;)
FYI, that's w/o a lens
I'm guessing this is military grade?
I know the US Army likes Nikon - maybe this is for them?

people keep writing about a light saber.
I would pay >$500 for a working light saber but not so much for a flash light.
There are much cheaper ways to highlight a subject. However, it does look snazzy!

ChristianRock: This is what we have been waiting for, for years :) I think Pentax does it right in terms of giving their customers a well thought out tool that is a pleasure to use and gives great results.
It's too bad that this took so long, if Pentax hadn't been taken over by Hoya in the 2000s and almost shut down by them, they would be much further ahead in the game at this point. Ricoh saved not just the brand but the Pentax way of doing things - out of the box yet friendly :)

Hoya did give us the k-5
Let's not be so quick to judge

I can see why Ricoh kept its name off this offering

In reply to:

Arsen: I just picked up mine about an hour ago.. Must say for a small camera the image quality is very good. Still no comparison to my Nikon D800E , but for a light camera has lots of features that my wife wanted in a small package. Overall very satisfied with it. I bought it with the kit lens, Ok overall, but like the compact size. The reason that I bought this camera was to use it when my D800E would be too big to take along. Its hard to sacrifice great IQ. So Far I am quite impressed, but time will tell based on various shooting conditions..

Just out of curiosity, when is your D800E not too big to take along?

mosc: What's the next review on tap? Should be G1X-ii (however the hell you want to abbreviate that)

Next is the GH4 and A7s. Are you not paying attention?
These reviews will certainly be quicker than the K-3

Link | Posted on Apr 15, 2014 at 02:20 UTC

Too bad it's not available for Pentax. This with the K-3's sensor and IBIS would make for a great portrait rig.

Dpreviewmember: it's just me or the OMD M1 jpegs, up to iso 3200 & 6400 look nicer than K3 and X-T1 in the image comparison tool, contrary to what the review conclusion says.
Is it referring to Raw ?

That's because they have to.
Data takes time.

Well played DPR. Placing it in the retired category of your semi-pro, you essentially compare it to 4 year old cameras. Hell hath no furry like a p.o. Canikon

Are you referring to the masses? Not sure the masses could understand half of what this camera does. The "majority" also shoots solely in green mode and their only lens is a plastic kit lens. (just ask the Rebel fan base)
However, Jpeg is handy in a pinch and DPR is correct in complaining about Pentax's "Bright" default setting.

Underdog 3000: I can tell DPR is a fan of the X-T1. Now that they have such emphasis on video, I wonder how it would score?

Sorry, maybe too much sarcasm.

I can really imagine a day in the office like:

"Hey, dudes, wanna see something cool?"
"Yeah. What?"
"I'll post an unboxing slideshow on the front page!"
"YEEEEEAAAAAAHHHHH"

You guys are naughty :o)

In reply to:

Beat Traveller: This is a pretty awesome upgrade: you now get a camera with a bigger sensor than m4/3, with a longer zoom range than the standard kit zoom and a brighter lens than most, all in a body close to the size of the GM1. Really impressive.

Go to camerasize.com and see your "close to the size of GM1".
Then report back and apologize or at least explain your definition of close. As an example, the moon is close to the size to Jupiter. This way we can get a full grasp of your lack of spatial relations.

Thanks

D1N0: So now I am going to be a bitch and ask for a Pentax K-50 and K-3 Review because this is not a serious camera but a gadget vehicle.

Maybe they noticed a flaw and knew a firmware update was immanent so they waited - no seriously.
