    There are other options. I use a $35 soft underwater case with my good quality compact zoom, and I have no issues. I'm particular about sealing the case and I always test in the hotel before going...

  • @NAwlins Contrarian:
    Hmm, not seeing that..... which one?

  • Assuming you're talking about the studio comparison photos, hover your cursor over the "i" symbol in the lower right corner and it'll tell you what they're using. The GH4 has the 45mm f/1.8 and the...

    "I have made a 60" x 40" print from the V3 ...."
    So you said in an earlier post.... and also about a Ricoh camera a few months ago. Printing a lot of those 40 x 60's are you? you'd think...

  • So disappointing. As though bells and whistles will make up for spectacularly poor image quality. 76% is being charitable. And $900 for a fast 85mm equivalent? Please.

  • It's a bit early to judge, there's nothing at the long end at all; it's pretty much a random collection of shots, from someone who likes the immediacy of wide angle.

    If these are truly...

  • I think they took some pretty shots as well; looks like they had fun with that lens; it's defintely sharp in the middle. But.... show me a shot at f/1.2-2.0 with a corner (or even an edge!) in the...

  • I think they took some pretty shots as well - looks like they had fun with that lens; it's defintely sharp in the middle. And I can see what they meant about the bokeh - still not that...

  • @bobbarber - that's not my point, my daily driver is a G5. It's specifically NOT a GF3, NEX 3, PM-2, E-PL5, etc, etc - and it won't be a Canon G1X Mark II, either....

  • Are people really not interested in having a viewfinder any more? Or do Canon and Nikon think that "we don't need no steenkin' viewfinder" is the only take-home message from increasing mirrorless...

  • Commented on Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 Review preview

    Huh. A new-generation R1..... for $1300?? Nah.

    For $820 I could get a Panasonic G6 kit plus the 45-150 and get better quality photos and videos in a smaller package, faster lens notwithstanding....

  • Commented on Am I missing something here? article

    The viewfinder on the V3 is distressingly similar to the VF-2 viewfinder I was forced to buy for my Olympus E-PL1. I'm having flashbacks to an odd-shaped lump of a camera that wouldn't fit into any...

  • @RKGoth:
    Wow, those things must be selling in the tens of..... tens.

    An excellent analogy to the new Hassy.

  • @Devandra: I have "F like 17 Tweet 27 g+1 0" to the left of the "BUY ON GEARSHOP $2798.00 >" - what do you have?

  • Anyone else notice the "buy on GearShop" tag just below the article title? Click on the $2,798.00 link and it takes you to the SLT-99.... Irony? from DPR?

  • That's what is making it so confusing...... I dont understand what would make it worth so much. If you're not working on RAW files, whats the point in LR? You're going to spend $100 a year to...
