Thorgrem: Still don't care. And now?

Don't worry. Review incoming. Plus video. Plus whatever clickbait. DPR will run it into the ground. :)

Thanks, but no thanks, Sony.

Every new Throwback Thursday gets shorter and shorter. Pretty soon, they won't bother writing anything and will just link the old reviews directly.

On article Hands-on with new Fujifilm X-E3 (200 comments in total)

Ugly, spartan looking, but most probably quite capable camera considering Fuji's reputation in the mirrorless field.

In reply to:

Jefftan: Review don't test the most important 5 axis IS for still and test if that has been improved

If not for this, no reason to use a small sensor , just buy 24 MP A6000/Canon M100 (remember both have better AF, much bigger sensor and more megapixel)

If 5 axis IS is really good, like can handheld wide angle at 1 second as some claim on E-M1 II, it MAY worth it (just may)

If not for the IS, this camera is simply worthless compare to A6000/M100 (Oh yes, it has 4k, big deal)

Yeah, glass available, ergonomics, controls and all those other useless stuff are not worth fretting over.

DPR either has a soft spot for Olympus or the company prioritizes sites like DPR with (p)review models still warm from the factory. I'm impressed by how fast those Oly reviews are done.

On article Throwback Thursday: Olympus E-P1 (58 comments in total)

Almost bought an EP1 back in the day. Almost. I could see the potential, but I didn't like the lack of native optics and the camera felt like a "work-in-progress" (AF in particular), like many mirrorless upstarts BTW. I went for the DSLR E620 from the same company released the same year, seemed more well-rounded and you had plenty of glass to choose from.

While I did use it for many years, DSLRs like the E620 soon ceased to be in production and m43 like EP1 continued to be perfected with each new model. The EPL1 in 2010 (which I did get) felt like they were starting to get it right. I also bought an EP3 two years later. Finally settled on an OMD EM5II in 2015. Plenty of glass too. There are still areas they can improve upon, but overall, I like the system.

Zakzoezie: I think they forgot to mention some Pros : It is not overheating, it shoots lossless compressed RAW files, it does not "eat" stars at night and it has decent battery life without the need to carry a bunch of backup batteries. I know, we got maybe a little spoiled over the past few decades on these really important basic values in photography, but that does not mean we should "forget" all these important points in the Pros list ... Just joking guys, just joking. Calm down, calm down ;o)

So... not a Sony is what you're saying?

Frank_BR: Nikon managers should have read the story of the failure of the Pentax Auto 110 system. If they had, Nikon would not have made the same mistake that Pentax did 40 years ago.

Shame on Nikon 1 for using... 110 film format?

A bit fuzzy, but not too shabby.

I wouldn't call it a DSLR killer but add some sort of smart cropping for a pseudo zoom and you've got yourself a next-gen Nokia Lumia 1020.

On article Fujifilm X-A3 Review (238 comments in total)

The review in a nutshell: competitive APSC IQ hampered by sluggish medium format like AF and operation.

No thanks.

Didn't mean much. Never bought one.

It did steer the market in a certain direction but I always prefered rival phones: cheaper, more options, more flexible phones.

On article Video: First look at the Canon EOS 6D Mark II (128 comments in total)

I like the updated sensor, AF, weather sealing, competent OVF and swivel screen.

But the rest is meh compared to similarly priced Nikons.

bluevellet: The lens was released over a year ago. Why the coverage now?

Better late than never, I guess.

There is still hope for much delayed lens reviews at DPR.

Im a bit surprised the prime costs more than the zoom.
