panchorancho: Now this is what mirrorless is all about! Better than Sony's A9 which is a half-baked attempt at making a sports camera! Go Fuji!

What's the need for shooting raw in sports..? Really now..! C'mon..!
I would say that only one out of 10,000 pix is going to be used for purposes that require that little extra...

On article Alpha-better: Sony a9 versus a7R II (449 comments in total)

Yesterday I commented in the article about replacing pro's existing gear with new Sony a9, that a lot of similar content will be produced. Not only here in DPR, but in almost photography site/blog. Thx for the reassuring DPR.

PhotoKhan: A very interesting article, the kind of analysis that informs your readers and makes DPR a world apart.

The number of "You're helping Sony" and "You're protecting Canon" comments aptly show how balanced and good the article is.

I do not see any purpose at all for such an article especially for pros. If a pro won't see something that in his opinion can make his life easier/better will not make the slightest move. If he does then he will try the crucial points of his new choice to be and the moment he will be sure he 'll go for it rather gradually than at once.
I agree though on the fact that conspiracy wise is a nice article producing tons of arguing posts.
That said, marketing wise, the point is publicity not the direct promotion. In this case having in mind that Sony is by far a better player in the field than its competitors and with the ability to spend more, this article will be followed by tons of similar writings in the press allover the world. It's the same thing they all do, it's a matter of company culture aesthetics, take it or leave it. But arguing is rather useless...

aris14: Ι think it's time for Sigma to be more serious overall with Foveon sensors. It's the only sensor which practically delivers noiseless images, no matter if the array of its use is somehow limited comparing to others and its users are few. There are fields of photography that really need the advantages Foveon sensors can offer and Sigma can be the king of these niches.

Τhis is the Sigma's problem... And this is what I am saying..!

Artem Holstov: Why are there so many hateful comments? If it is not for you, do not desperately try to discredit it for no good reason. Other people can look at the same results and make their on decisions.

I cannot even remotely afford this camera and I do not really want it either. But I respect anyone who buys Nikon or Canon or Sony or Pentax or whatever. Buy a camera you want and enjoy using it. What do you guys gain from all these fanboyish arguments?

@Artem Holstov
Because every website relying on the number of its members cannot afford to ban them once and for all ad yet for the reason that these guys are immature buyers/clients who need a place to show off their suffering of cognitive dissonance...

On article Leica offers free fix for faulty AF in some S lenses (91 comments in total)

Mystery solved at last...
All Leica's products having an S, mean that Leica is the sadistic member of the relationship manufacturer/client while all products with an M mean that Leica's clients are the masochist part...

..."Those whose drive units are still functioning can also have theirs replaced but for a charge of around $400 according to Red Dot Forum"...
Quality control was a lil bit messy, however some had to be good, let's make a deal...

Even if aesthetics could be algorithmized, EA it' s worse than a typical committee decision, the members of which have no relation to a given matter. Which to my opinion is the core of people who involved in EA design.

On article Fujifilm GFX 50S Review: Modern MF (899 comments in total)

Comparing recent MFs cams to current FF flagships shows that pricing works against MF, making MF to aim only at pros who can really get this extra "MF bonus" for their work...
MF is comprehensively ahead in implementations from 70-100 MP.
To my opinion there is no need for MF in any mainstream photographic work requiring hi class print output less than A1 size.

On article Hasselblad X1D-50c First Impressions Review (316 comments in total)

Ι think that the only thing matters is that they had 30,000 preordered units... That means the 30.000 guys surely know what to do with it and how to sell it.

So many candidates for the chair of Chief of Strategy here and these Hassy owners did not offer them this very chair...
Shame on them...

It's affordable, it delivers top class images, it's agile, it incorporates IBIS, it's clever and it's sealed just in case... Ideal partner for a photog's small smart studio at least..!

On article Re-make/Re-model: Leica Summaron 28mm F5.6 Samples (202 comments in total)

C.mon DPR readers, show some fantasy. In this case we are witnesses of a new era in photography: The Leic[o/a]graphy. The Leic[o/a]graphy will substitute the Lomography by adding glamour, prestige and value, the cost of which is not some tenths of $/€, but thousands. A cost only the fearless will undertake only the half blinds will comprehend, a real tribute to vanity.
Btw, the lens was just right at a time that color pix represented the 10% of global use, the most cams were rangefinders and color films were struggling to cope the expectations...

Cute, clever and well built the LX series practically established the segment of enthusiast compact cameras. In some cases its files had nothing to be jealous of entry to mid level APS Dslr's at that time, mainly because of its lens.
Two pro friends of mine always carried this little fellow in their pockets.
