On article Beta: try out our new 'light' color scheme (722 comments in total)

Well, well... there used to be a time I was thinking that DPReview would be so much better with a light theme. I have got used to the original so the light one feels a bit strange at first but there must have been a reason for me to think that back then. Plus, I'm sure many people's eyes just react better to the 'normal' style - dark text on light background.

So my 2 cents (if anyone needs them) - it would be awesome to have both options available at all times. Don't get rid of the original but by all means keep the new option. Thanks for continuously improving this great site!!

Nello: DID ANYONE GOT CREEPED OUT BY THIS GUY'S "WORKS"?
I'm a parent and I'm sincerely shocked that someone would take a picture of his young daughter running around in underwear (see here http://www.laboile.com/images/limited3.jpg) and then sell it over the internet?
And it gets WORSE...have a look at this...his teenager daughter faking huge boobs with a balloon in low waist jeans while the other strikes a "sexy" pose for the camera????

And you sell the prints over the internet?? WTF is wrong w this people?
Now I understand France has always been kinda' "libertine" but this is wrong IMO...maybe I am just an over-reacting parent but I think this guy is one step from pimping his daughters if the "art" doesn't sell !
What's next DP...some pedophile galleries??

Nello, you have issues, man. Seriously. Go see a shrink.

No VC for Sony at a 400+mm equiv. focal length? Major fail... Good luck framing anything with the jumpy viewfinder. And I'm sure it will cost the same as the VC version for Canikon.

When will Sigma and Tamron learn.....

On article AP cuts ties with Pulitzer-winning photographer (166 comments in total)

Wow, as said by many, I wish AP (and other media, for that matter) would apply the same stringent standard to all the stories they publish.

I feel bad for the journalist. It's not like it's a job in paradise to start with.

On article Tamron to develop 150-600mm F5-6.3 ultra-telephoto zoom (193 comments in total)

If they include VC in the Sony-Alpha mount I might be interested. If they go cheap ala Sigma and skip it, no thanks!

When will companies learn that removing features and capabilities while keeping the price the same is hardly a way to entice customers?

In reply to:

bert01: I think dpreview is being a troll on it's own review just to create controversy. Giving the RX100 the Silver award for being the best in its class makes a mockery of their rating system.

Yup, it is more than a bit incongruous....

Ditto on the old Maxxums... bulletproof. Oops, shouldn't have said that; now the second-hand price will creep up even faster

On article Olympus executives sentenced, avoid jail time (50 comments in total)

IDK, Woodford always gave the impression he went into the whistle-blowing biz with the intent to destabilize and then take over the company rather than for some noble reasons. He failed miserably but not before he had caused even more damage than the crooks before him

Not a single person involved in this looks good.

AshMills: Whilst Im glad this camera system exists I wont be buying one yet- the chip is still too noisy for me.

I reallly just want a silent Nikon FF body with no SLR viewfinder or mirror that can take all my FF glass, without the (audible) noise of a FF DSLR. It can be same size as a Nikon FM.

Anyone else want one?

Ask Sony to make you one :) Or get an A99

R Thornton: Kudos to Sony for making all the online "it-can't-be-done" pundits with their registration distances and laws of physics and all the parrot talk look clueless now! Learn from their example and beware, ye phony over-price defenders!

So right, they already had made a lot of people look very silly three years ago when they released the A900 with a full-frame stabilized sensor- something that had been proven impossible beyond any doubt by a bevy of 'experts' on these very pages. History does repeat itself after all!
