  • Replied in Upgrade path
    Camera manufactures supply based on demand and that comes from a mixture of people’s practical needs, emotional needs and fashion. Practically a FF camera would make no difference to the photos I ...
  • That's great. Thanks for the info. Ian
  • Created question thread M50 bracketing help
    I'm thinking of getting an m50 but could someone check the following? I want to take bracketed exposures for merging in post and I don’t want camera shake. The drive mode selector on the m50 looks ...
  • It doesn’t make sense that a single optical design would give you less consistency than multiple optical designs. If you used say a Samyang 135mm f/2, manually focused and with any profiles turned...

  • When I say the same lens, I mean the same optical design. You buy the same lens in each manufactures mount, no need for adapters. There may be some product varience but nothing like completely...

  • To my mind, it is the policy of using native lenses which is the problem. If you used the same lens on every camera (say a Samyang) you would only be dealing smaller sample variation. Any design...

  • I think the Samyang 50mm F1.4 AS UMC is available in all mounts. For the cost of a few lenses DPR could test all cameras with the same lens. I'm not saying it would change the result but it would ...
  • Hi Rishi, I understand your defensiveness given all the comments, but I’m not questioning your conclusions, I'm sure they're fine. Just stating using the same lens would be more helpful and may...

  • This isn’t the first time a bad lens/focus muddies the water of the test scene. Why doesn’t DPReview use the same lens on every camera they test? I think the Samyang 50mm is available in all...

  • I understand some people wish Canon would make a high end mirrorless but it’s silly to take it out on the M50. In the UK the M50 is £130 less than an A6300 and £230 less than an X-T20 (Park Cams)....

  • To me, it looks like Ricoh are just treading water at this stage, they can’t carry on like this. Only three possibilities I can think of. 1 They need time to prepare a new line (mirrorless/new mount?)
  • I saw the video when it was published and their suggestions were just ‘off the top of the head’ comments. The important take away is that they are in the business of selling cameras and think that ...
  • Replied in 24mm primes?
    I use old manual focus lenses similar to your sigma. If you shoot portraits/objects you may well be happy with the 21mm. If you shoot scenes and want corner to corner/close to far sharpness, you ...
