fotomotovfr: I wonder how many get the MST3000 reference?

Well played sirs, well played. :)

I wonder if any of them know it's still trademarked...and coming back.

On article Ultra-compact: Sony Cyber-shot RX1R II review (546 comments in total)
In reply to:

tim fisher46: There are two further issues no one has thus mentioned (I may be wrong as there are almost 600 comments)

1) the a7r shutter curtain failed after 12 months on mine. Sony said their shutter curtains are NOT covered under the warranty agreement, regardless if the camera's age.

Sony will not deal direct with repairs from photographers in the UK, it had to be sent to a 3rd party who then failed to fix it and had Sony do the repair. That 3rd party cost me £40 for the pleasure of being told they do not fix broken shutter curtains, only Sony do that even after being told the Curtiss was in several pieces.

2) I pair up my a7r with the lovely Zeiss Biogon ZM 35mm f2.0 ( great on the M240) and at smaller apertures, say 11 or 13, there is an almost lenticular vignetting effect mid image, I will run out an example and send a link to illustrate this later. Images are uncorrectable and thus unusable.

Thus, my experience with the a7r is not all it it pertains to be, forewarned is forearmed.

They probably weren't mentioned because this isn't an A7R review. Two completely different shutter mechanisms.

DanielVavrecka: For the price of these you really should consider Peak Design's Everyday Messenger bag. Awesome features and quality.

Because Peak Design's may be the ugliest camera bags ever made.

On article CP+ 2016: Hands-on with new Sigma SD cameras and lenses (308 comments in total)

And yet again, DPReview won't ask a direct question that's all over the forums and unanswered by Sigma: will the new 1.8 zooms work on the APS-H model? Of course pricing and availability is also a great unknown.

3Bild: Bought a 32GB card that will not let me use 100 MBit codecs/formats.
How can one tell what is working or not. I am really confused.
What IS working, Sandisk SDSDXPB-032G-A46 or other models?

I will not buy a new card unless I am absolutely sure it will work and be able to us all of the cameras features.

Look at the memory card chart at the beginning of this review.

j900: The press release forgets to mention that it comes with a scanner for posting your prints to social media.

Why would you need a scanner when they're already saved digitally to the card?

Link | Posted on Sep 3, 2015 at 19:20 UTC

Want.

Why the lack of specs for the 24-70?

Kwick1: Pretty sure that "Up to 1.1M panorama" is a myth, considering what this proper reviewer just printed: http://www.northlight-images.co.uk/reviews/printer/epson-sc_p800_review.html

Yes, and your release said it was "up to 1.1M" limit.

In reply to:

mgrum: "Canon has never offered us two cameras with the same sensor and asked us to pay more for one, to get some extra features before"

That's pretty much all Canon have done for the past 6 years ;)

Canon's not the only one. How many Olympus micro four thirds bodies have the same sensor? All of the current ones.

Link | Posted on Feb 16, 2015 at 15:45 UTC

I'm loving the innovation, but the one thing that keeps me from going back to the Olympus (and M43 system) is the high ISO performance. As long as I have a usable ISO 12,800, I'm good.

I agree with the majority of other posters: Without an EVF, even as an accessory, this is a non-starter.

Kwick1: Canon needs to realize that the money is in the lenses, not the bodies. Doesn't matter if it's a DSLR or this lame attempt at a MILC. If you sell the blades, it doesn't matter whose razor it is.

As the article mentions, they fear cannibalization of the sales of new DSLR bodies. It shouldn't matter to them.

On article UPDATED: Real-world samples: Sony Alpha 7 II in Kauai (227 comments in total)

People criticize Fuji for having ugly greens, but these are the worst I've seen. Hard to make Kauai look that bad, but you did. Waxy, dull, lifeless. Thanks for posting these - I was temped before, but not any more.
