On article 2017 Roundup: $1200-2000 ILCs: full-frame (385 comments in total)

DPR recommends... silver-awarded cameras over gold-awarded cameras.

Thanks Zeiss but no thanks.

I already own the Sigma Art 35mm f1.4. I doubt your lens is worth over double the price of the Sigma.

Sincerely,

A FX user

In reply to:

entoman: Definitely agree that D500 is the winner (and I'm a pro Canon user, not a Nikon fanboy). Not so sure about the XT-2 getting runner-up though. Sure, it's an extremely nice camera, but to my mind the Olympus is better in almost every way (specs, ergonomics, speed of operation, lens choice etc).

I see the XT2 is more well rounded, having nice specs in almost every category without being class leading. EM1 II is more a speed demon, it excels at that and you pay extra for it too but not necessarily something to recommend for everybody, a bit like the Sony A9

Essentially, I think it's easier to recommend the XT2 to most people. But I would not recommend the D500 like DPR does though.

In reply to:

ms18: I wonder why A7 II is not included.

The anti-Sony conspiracy of course.

Or it's a round-up for cropped sensor cameras.

The GFX looks like the better medium format mirrorless system from the start. That kind of support only solidifies that impression.

In reply to:

MatchencoSouth: You write about Olympus cameras quite often. Why not to take a look back at the first DSLR of mine, my beloved and precious Olympus E-1? Would be an exciting reading! (I read the DP Review's Throwback Thursday articles every week and I find them extremele interesting!)

Good bet the E1 tribute is coming, even though DPR's review at the time was lukewarm.

I owned a very similar camera released around the same time, the Kodak P880. Similar zoom range, good controls, DSLR-like. I had a very good experience with that camera and "grew" with it. I'm sure I would have enjoyed the C-8080 back in the day for the same reasons.

I'll take random kitty posts over 2 dozens A9 articles.

"Tough" but still obviously pretty.

On article Olympus PEN E-PL8 First Impressions Review (114 comments in total)
In reply to:

samwichse: Can someone confirm whether or not this camera has phase-detection autofocus?

The specs page on this (p)review says "contrast detect" and "81 point" in two separate columns.

The specs page on Newegg says "81-area multiple AF (Contrast detection AF), 37-area multiple AF (Phase-difference detection AF)"
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16830111601

Who is right? Phase detection A/F would make this a worthy upgrade for my aging E-PL2.

contrast detect. Only the OMD EM1 series cameras have phase detection.

There's a Fuji X100 series camera in the Brigitte Bardot shot.

The back of this camera is worringly spartan. Tiny LCD, tiny OVF and a few buttons then lots of empty space.

goblin: A nice little technological marvel for its time, sacrificed on the altar of strategic misplanning by beancounting olympic champions in self-foot shooting.

Almost bought one of those. Almost. Burst speed, fast AF and slow motion video options were attractive.

But Nikon appearing not to give a damn made me reconsider.

In reply to:

justmeMN: I think Nikon needs an APS-C mirrorless camera. That sensor size is where the biggest ILC sales volume is.

A poorly supported APSC mirrorless system would fail just as well. Poor support is the underlying problem with Nikon 1, not sensor size.

WongFeiHong: Coming from Canon I have to say this camera has the WoW factor. The spec sheet is just incredible... Can't see anything about weather sealing unless I am missing something.

I have to say well done and kudos to Sony team!!!!

Probably "weather-sealed" like the other A7s are "weather-sealed". Against some vague degree of moisture and dust and not much else.

Jefftan: Suddenly A6500 looks like a bargain

D5 probably run rings in AF around this camera, if the pattern of all A7 cameras released thus far continues.

In reply to:

falconeyes: > The new α9 also supports uncompressed 14-bit RAW, ensuring users can get the most out of the wide dynamic range of the sensor.

Still no lossless compressed raw.

But I heard it does have a mechanical shutter. The same old one stuck at 5fps.

In reply to:

Absolutic: Gary Fong just said in Live Streaming that there is NO TOUCH SCREEN. So someone is wrong there, either Gary or other press releases. He was using the camera.

Also he said he would be testing the rolling shutter issue tomorrow

"it behaves similarly to the a6500's unit

So... it stinks?
