On article Leica offers free fix for faulty AF in some S lenses (92 comments in total)

..."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 (908 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.

On article Ming Thein joins Hasselblad as Chief of Strategy (346 comments in total)

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...

Pana is usually presents its new models in summer (July) and Xmas. So in 4 months time we shall "read" its decisions.

On article Pentax KP Review (664 comments in total)

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 (197 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.

It will be something between 105 - 135 mm, f 2.8 and expensive, that is why they promote it through Insta, just like every fashion item producer would chose to do... Its performance will excel in an area covering the 3% of circumstances by a margin of 5% which margin another 20% of potential buyers would comprehend as something unique and sell it as such to people they crave to be persuaded from something to spice up their lives... No..?

On article Pentax KP sample gallery (96 comments in total)

A serious APS competitor by all means. Maybe the meanest guy in the segment. Good price, excellent hi ISO performance. Some lenses in this gallery delivered top IQ.

On article Throwback Thursday: Our first cameras (392 comments in total)

I can't recall its name. It was a Russian one. Smeha or Diana. I was 9 y.o. I could not even load the film, I was going to my neighborhood's photo shop for that. Later on a I had a Kodak Instamatic 233x. My first camera that I bought with my own money was the Pentax MX with the 50mm, f 1.4 lens. I still have it in very good condition.

Great little fellow...
Pana created the niche of travel zoom cams and this is to be mentioned...

At least these guys are sincere... Canon is to remain #1, that's it.

Οne thing is for sure: if s/o deals with whatever has to do with Nikon, becomes Nikonish...
Nikon functions in its own way, a rather odd way...

Seems there is a rather important market for lenses... Too many manufacturers in many niches...

Must be the water... Someone puts something in it...

In reply to:

Chris Yates: Am I the only one tired of manufacturers not disclosing pricing when releasing new products, when each product was developed with a budget and a target price?

No u are not!
Manufacturers who don't suggest even a rough pricing (i.e over a $1000, even via rumors), they just speculate in pricing.

In reply to:

jdc562: Considering all the inferiorities the review lists for this camera, it looks to me like DPreview lacks the integrity--honesty--and courage to dare to give the holy Leica-branded camera a more accurate lower numeric score. They give the Sony a99ii, with its superior features, an 85%, but give the Leica 84%. I bet if DPreview were given this exact same camera disguised as a different brand, the numeric score would have been far lower.
This is a fawning, obsequious, prejudiced score. DPreview, I'm not just disappointed, I am disgusted.

@Ebrahim Saadawi
Reading numbers was never a problem. Problem starts when we want to interpret numbers. If we cannot do it, we serve numbers per se, as an alibi to deliver camouflaged ad hominem arguments.
