Bombastic: Amazing camera indeed. Then again, my xt20 beats it in sheer detail (at the expense of higher noise).

watch this :-)

so which one do you think would out perform the em5mk2 in the studio using live hdmi to a large monitor , fast and accurate face and eye detect, lens 28 to 300 zoom shooting from the hip without looking through the vf ?

On article Throwback Thursday: the Nikon D80 (245 comments in total)

The d80 was the first dslr I looked at at camera house, but sadly I couldn't justify $2000 au on a camera so I picked up a pentax k100d twin lens kit for $1100. never looked back as the Nikons and pentax cameras used the same sony sensors.

chriswilliams10: Kinda funky, clunky lookin', huh? I wonder where the room is for these cameras? I'm sure they're nice and "serviceable" but not adding anything to DSLR features. I love competition but when I step back and look at Nikon.... not Canon.... not sure where this fits in. Price point is decent but, seriously, who is going to commit to the lens mount, etc. I just don't know where the market is for this... Then again, love the competition!!

check it out compared to the em5,706

380 shots from a battery and you complain about poor battery performance on mirror less LOL.

In reply to:

thx1138: This bit is hilarious "We do have a couple concerns, though. Although the camera will shoot at up to ISO 25600, Auto ISO control maxes out at 6400."

You will not even want to use ISO 3200 on this camera too often. It is simply trounced by D500 at high ISO, more than 1EV, probably 1.33EV worse. It's actually worse than the 7DII too at high ISO probably by 0.5EV. The ISO 25600 setting is marketing gone mad.

I think you should do a bit more home work as to who trounces who as far as recording detail at iso 3200 ? Nikon in-camera raw noise reduction goes a long way in the blacks :-) after iso 3200.

dash2k8: If flying over crowds is a no-no, then lots of marathons and other crowd events will have to resort to different equipment to obtain overhead shots that will be safer but also much more limiting. I agree it's better to be safe than sorry, I merely point out the small cost of that safety. I was once hired to shoot the local Iron Man Triathlon with a drone and obviously the drone flew over people. Those same amazing shots of hundreds swimming in the sea will now be either unavailable, or require REAL helicopters. Again, I'm not arguing against safety, just thinking out loud.

easy just shoot from the side LOL.

In reply to:

Douglas F Watt: It's not that DPR criticisms are not valid, it's that the overall picture that emerges from this review seems just ever so slightly tilted . . . . in the direction of pet peeves and gripes about the interface, lack of touchscreen and AF tracking, instead of an emphasis on just how stunning the overall achievement is of having a sharp 24-600 2.4-4 that comes in at just over 2 lbs, and that provides superb video functionality with very good stills ability. Additionally, and indicative of their lack of time to really explore the full envelope of the camera's OS, there is a touchscreen interface available, through the smartphone remote control app, which at least IMO is class-leading, allowing for full control of many shooting parameters, including touch-location of AF point. That it won't replace FF or even APS-C equipment for great DR, S/N ratio in low light seems a sacrifice one must make willingly to get what the package does provide. As for the Sony menu system, it's not that bad.

Jacs, it has a 600mm eq reach :-)

Yake: The macro looks like a good lens for dentists who photograph their patients' teeth. At close distances the flash units will work great.

he would have to stick it in their mouth to get close enough.

what is the point of a 28mm macro lens, the designer obviously has never shot macro before.
