On article Retro through-and-through: Fujifilm X-Pro2 Review (2478 comments in total)
In reply to:

okanb: I ended up selling my X-Pro2 and keeping A7. Eventhough it is a leap forward compared to previous x-trans sensor, fine detail, less color smearing etc it is still not comparable to FF by any means (DR, Low ISO, Fine Details..). I also found no advantage of having OVF. This camera should not cost for than 800 dollars as it is not leading the industry but just lagging behind (compared to A6300, D5500 etc) except probably build quality. I am fully invested in Fuji and like it, but for landscape XP2 is not enough, for anything else 16MP xtrans sensor will not make much difference. For 1700 USD I now have a Sony A7 and a Zeiss 16-35 f4. Is it also better than XP2 and 10-24 combined? Yes it is.

A7s go for about 400-500 bucks on Ebay.

In reply to:

SKL123: Is it me or the M5 II studio image comparision looks softer against the M5. In JPEG a little softer then the old M5 and in RAW even more, look at the top game cards to see it more clearly.
Is it the diference in shutter speed or what ?

Not the same lens used. The old FT 50mm f2 macro is sharper than the 45mm f1.8.

In reply to:

Mrrowe8: For me it is almost a coin flip between this and a D750 (with the very good kit lens ) , both are truthfully about the same price equal when both are equipped with same lens .. Sticking point for me is I will not buy a camera without being able to hold it .. I find the D750 all day long K-1 not yet .. Once I can hold that I can make a final verdict .. Either way I am coming out a winner

D750 sounds like the safer choice. Can do a lot of things, AF woks, lots of lenses.

K1 is a great bargain for what it does, but it's more narrow in its uses.

bluevellet: Disgusting technology. Never bought an Iphone and i never will.

You're not preventing theft, since the Iphone is one of many, many recording technologies that has been around for decades. But Apple is signaling they are actually letting third-parties the power to cripple your device for whatever reason, if you're dumb enough to ever buy Apple products. If they can do that, and it is something that can definitely be misused, they can do a lot worse.

Not bad.

And relatively cheap for a Hasselblad, ;)

In reply to:

Paul JM: Really tried hard to like MFT. The lenses are generally great, but having bought both Olympus and Pana MFT bodies, I sold them all. The image quality just doesn't measure up to top line APSc bodies, let alone FF. Much happier with the image quality and colour rendition that Fuji delivers, and only a little more heft

Your loss. I use both.

FX cameras because I like DSLRs and all the best lens selection and most of the higher end bodies just happen to be FF. APSC is this weird chronically undersupported format/sensor size, despite selling more than FF.

I use M43 because it's the best mirrorless lens library and the smal(er) sensor allow for smaller everything (while still flexible enough to allow bigger bodies and lenses if needed). I would have gone for even smaller sensors like Nikon 1 if it were better supported.

In reply to:

robjons: If the D600 had been $1500 in the first place, I probably would have jumped and thus been hooked into FF. But it was over $2K, and now I'm happy I stayed with DX.

Geez people get defensive in here.

Since you stayed with DX, it's not Nikon's loss.

If you were really strapped for cash but still wanted a FX camera, you could have by simply gone to the used/refurbished market. You still can. I think the D600 go for well under a grand. And you can get a guarantee the shutter mechanism has no problems (the oil issue).

In reply to:

cgarrard: I'm curious why the Olympus OM-D EM1 is pictured in the main article image alongside a Canon FF DSLR :).

The EM1's greatness transcends DPR's arbitrary camera categories.

In reply to:

bluevellet: Usually those lower end m43 bodies don't get much love from DPR, but the GX85 just might get a gold award from the sound of it.

I'm surprised lens selection is now an important consideration, it wasn't for the A6000 series cameras from Sony.

Your phone.

On article Nikon D600 In-Depth Review (22 comments in total)

I still use this camera to this day. Good IQ, large OVF and useful AF. Good bang for the buck.

I also use crop-sensored mirrorless cameras, but I still like DSLRs and FF models tend to be better with lots of native lens choices.

Obviously, it is old and it is lagging behind newer DSLR models like with outdated movie recording, simple AF or slow liveview. But none of it is really a deal breaker for me so I still use it.

In reply to:

Pootle2: Does the Sony actually beat the Nikon 1 in autofocus???

Or you could read the nice summaries of these cameras DPR has written for us, the same article we are all commenting on? Nah too hard.

Nikon 1 can shoot and focus at 20 fps with no sensor black outs. No other mirrorless cameras can match that kind of performance. It is the main headline feature for Nikon 1 and they've always been ahead in this department. Just accept it.
