  • I assume you didn't even read or view the post and are instead referring to the totally different gold plated Nikon Df?

  • What developments came first to large sensor?

    Large sensors were mostly CCD, small sensors CMOS. CMOS trickled up to large sensors, just now hitting medium format.

    The larger you go, the fewer...

  • Yet the 645Z looks a lot more detailed in those shots. Bigger sensor means higher resolution (even given same pixel count). Now, arguably, how much resolution do you need? I am fine with APS-C,...

  • Yet the 645Z looks a lot more detailed in those shots. It makes the A7R look blurry and out of focus, and that is extremely high resolving camera. Bigger sensor means higher resolution (even...

  • @Just a Photographer, Samsung is still tuning the high ISO, not that it is bad or good, just not final. These are JPEGs. I can't wait to get RAW files in studio comparison tool.

  • The NX1 body only is $1500, much cheaper than the 7DII. This comes with a grip, extra battery, and a 16-50mm f/2 to 2.8 (yes f/2 to 2.8) lens which retails for $1300 US. I own the lens, it is...

  • What are you talking about? NX30 was last camera released by Samsung (maybe NX3000 was in there), and the full review was done only 6 months ago. http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/samsung-nx30/

  • I have never understood "pro" support. Have spare gear.

  • Wow, when Retro goes bad. Gold plated camera bodies (Canon, Nikon, Pentax and others made them in the 80s), something I never wanted to see, ever. They were poor taste in 1980 and they are still...

  • Exactly. Both Canon and Nikon sell premium 16-85mm f/3.5-5.6 class lenses, and many Pentax users have been complaining they don't have one of those. Now they do and they are still complaining. ...

  • No, Pentax just does that with certain models. K-x, K-r, and others. If the normal version wasn't selling they likely wouldn't waste money making different colored versions.

  • Agreed, didn't see any mention of camera mount being plastic in the linked article, only internal lens construction.

    The Sony A7 and A7R use mounts fitting of a an entry level camera. Glad they...

  • 삼성 are the two syllables, pronounced roughly like SAHM (삼) -SOHNG (성), literally the name translates as 3 Stars (tristar) as I understand it. Not to be confused with triforce, from my favorite...

  • But that has already been done by Sony, so I think this will have to be something totally new or their ad will backfire.

  • Personally, I am more worried about getting a good sample of a lens than I am about the warranty.

  • Personally, I am more worried about getting a good sample of a lens than I am about the warranty. It is a good question though, I would imagine it is the same as buying a used lens, but at least...

  • Where is the report on cut in half gear? :) Those are always fun.
