why is it tested at full zoom? Probably not the best setting I would think for the lens?

(unknown member): You can do this on a phone now! If you use a Nokia 808 and stay back far enough to ensure EVERYTHING is in focus, from a 41mp 4:3 vertical picture you should get an 10x8" print of equal quality, yet even at base iso it'll only need a click. Why not get a pepper and try, now you are able to improve on it in color!

cernic: Would like to see out of the camera jpegs at ISO 100's on the entire zoom range especially at 400mm.

something at f8 would be nice too.

mediter: Very sad that the AF is not up to scratch for such a wonderful camera. Was hoping they sort it out and bring it up to par with the big boys.

Those passionate Pentaxarians must realise that when reviewers criticise the AF system of Pentax they are simply reporting thier findings. There is no point denying the AF system is not up to scratch and for me if one cannot AF on a moving bicycle, it is unacceptable. Pick up a Nikon to compare and you will realise its AF system is fast, faultless and infallible. That is why sadly I had to go back to Nikon after I had switched to Pentax although I still have a nice collection of lenses.

Unfortunately, Pentax AF system of today has not yet even caught up with Nikon's and Canon's accuracy of the film era.

The rest of the things Pentax do is outstanding and marvellous... but not good enough for my needs, could be for yours, however.

I'm not trolling, I just don't think the bicycle test is good for a dslr, that is not how anybody uses a dslr and if it is a good test why wasn't it done on all the new reviews like the D5. Is shirt recognition a new feature on the D500? :D

Look at the bicycle test of the D500, all of them were OOF
Maybe why they didn't show the D5 results if they tried it

On article Lens shootout: Sony RX10 III destroys the competition (502 comments in total)
In reply to:

gordzam: 600mm shots shot with the Canon G3 X clearly show a lot of heat distortion when viewed at full res that the Sony pics don't show. Are these shot deliberately much later in the day to degrade the perceived better quality of the Sony? Honestly, I can only spot a very slight advantage at full aperture of the Sony lens, which will not be visible when viewing the whole photo. All 3 cameras are on par, and very good, and I would not make a decision on image quality if I had to choose between these 3 cams.

they were taken on different days in different conditions. I agree that a better test would be closer (and in the same conditions)

In reply to:

borno: the lens comparison should be done at the same time because the heat waves are bad for the canon, kind of bad for the sony and clear for the panasonic. IMO

Heat waves, shimmer or whatever. It is not the same for the three cameras just look at the pictures at max zoom. It is obvious and doesn't have to be hot outside to mess with a telephoto shot either. Air currents will do it also. Not a good test IMO
