    The point is, if you are nitpicking someone else, you must expect the same treatment back... and as far as I'm aware (please correct me if I'm wrong), being legally blind shouldn't stop...

  • @Russell

    If you're claiming to be smarter than the DPReview staff, at least start by getting all the words down correctly in that sentence.

  • Commented on Panasonic Lumix DMC-GM5 Review preview

    Nothing.

    ...But earlier in the text from the same page the APS-C Sony A6000 was mentioned as a potential peer to the GM5. Given that the Sony does indeed have faster autofocus, better low light...

  • All worthy winners, although with Sony top for two categories, and runner up for a third, I'm curious how this comments section will pan out.

    Just imagine the shock horror if the Sony/Zeiss 55/1.8...

  • 1. Even if Canikon is not the "standard" (which I believe they still are will be for practical purposes for a while), we still all know what their output is.

    I'd argue it doesn't matter what...

  • DPReview Staff - possible suggestion:
    When you do these in future, could you also take the same photo with a standard high-end stock camera (eg. Nikon D810 / Canon 5D m3) so we can have something...

  • Really? When the A7/A7R were released last year in Singapore, the A7 w/o kit lens was sold out, also the A7R... many people bought the A7 w/kit lens and then subsequently sold it off as they had...

  • @Just a Photographer
    I owned the Zeiss 24-70/4 and it was excellent, only decided to sell it to fund the Zeiss 16-70/4 for use on an APS-C body. Colour and micro-contrast were excellent on my...

  • I'd say a fast constant F2.8 zoom would definitely be a welcome lens for e-mount (both APS-C and FF). Olympus and Panasonic have m43 versions (although with the reduced DoF that the half-frame...

  • Commented on Hands-on with Nikon's new D5500 article

    @josh
    Okay, then explain to me where the D400 is...

    /I kid ;-)

  • Sure, but there's a huge jump in cost of lenses when moving from aps-c to FF... well, in the Sony/Zeiss world that is!

    Disclaimer: I also own an A7 ;-)

  • Commented on Hands-on with Nikon's new D5500 article

    @Josh152
    You make a good point, but I stand by my point. Out here in Singapore I hear the argument against using 4 all the time from my Chinese colleagues. It's taken as seriously as the...

  • One of the missing lenses for Sony e-mount... sigh.

    (Disclaimer, I own the 16-70/4 and love it, but sometimes it'd be good to get a little more subject isolation from an F2.8)

  • Commented on Hands-on with Nikon's new D5500 article

    Or more likely they are just skipping the number 4 which sounds like death in Chinese and Japanese, and is considered unlucky (like 13 in some western cultures). Most Japanese manufacturers skip...
