thx1138: 1/2.33" sensors should be banned. Can't believe we still see this crap in abundance in 2015.

Right, I could see people carrying a 24-1200mm lens on a full frame camera. How about we also ban cars and only make full size trucks.

Suave: I admit, it's a really interesting camera, but $1300 for a matching standard zoom is a boatload of money.

The Samsung NX 16-50mm F2.0-2.8 S ED OIS is a premium lens and not a standard zoom like the Samsung NX 16-50mm F3.5-5.6 Power Zoom ED OIS.

dougster1979: If you have a tiny body, you will still have to use large lenses(full frame). Smaller lenses = 4/3rds, APSC.

Hey nerd2, I also have an 85mm F1.4 for my full frame Sony VG900 and A7r.

My Leica DG Nocticron 42.5mm f/1.2 for my GH4 takes 67mm filters so it's not so small a lens.

I don't buy large screen smartphones to impress people, I buy it to view images, videos and web pages with my eyes. My Sony A7r shoots great 36mp images but it does not make phone calls or have internet access and only has a 3" display.

What E mount camera has a 6.44" display ? What E mount camera makes phone calls ? What E mount camera has wi-fi & LTE internet access ?

Alex Sarbu: "The Pentax K range has clear gaps for the 18-300mm f/3.5-6.3-type lens other manufacturers have found so popular"
They had an 18-250, replaced by a 18-270, and the Sigma 18-250 is still available. Where's the "clear gap", DPReview?

Why is the Tamron 16-300mm F/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD Macro not available in K mount ?

qwertyasdf: Hey, I heard that Pentax will finally release a FF DSLR next year.....for the 10 past years.

10 years ? That would be January 2005 but Pentax showed a full frame DSLR in September 2000.

If Ricoh does not show the rumored full frame Pentax at CP+ 2015 it will be party over for Pentax since Pentax showed a full frame DSLR in September 2000.

In reply to:

zakaria: As the 645z price is nearly the top full frame frome canikon..so no pentax fullframe.645z is pentax full frame.

The 645Z is $8,500 and the 28-45mm F4.5 zoom is $5,000 so it's more than twice the price of a top full frame from canikon with zoom lens. The 645Z 25mm F4 ultra wide lens is $4,800 and 90mm macro is $4,500.

Pentax needs a K mount full frame in the price range of the new Sony A7 II for under $1,700. BTW full frame Pentax K mount lenses work on the Sony A7 II but not on the 645Z.

Menneisyys: No point in trying to emulate shallow DoF. The results will be sometimes dreadful, as has been shown by the M8.

When I want a shallow DOF with my 6.44" Sony Xperia Z Ultra smartphone I just use the APS-C QX1 and fast FE mount lens with it.

On Canon EOS 7D Mark II Review preview (1231 comments in total)
In reply to:

Zerg2905: Dear DPREVIEW...
I read your reviews carefully. Because I think you have the skills, and the expertise, to produce quite good reviews. And many, many times, I was on the same page with you, especially when you pointed (rightly) the clear flaws some of the Canon cameras have. But not this time. I own the 7D 2. I had the 7D before, and between these two there is no contest. Sony sensors, ah, yes, they DO have more DR (but not that much). Other brands DO have more video mumbo jumbo (and big minuses in other areas). But the 7D 2 is, in my opinion, a photo tool, first hand. So tell me, please: which photo tool in the APS-C world is matching the 7D 2? The SLT A-77 II? I would have to disagree, as I have use it, too. Other brands don't have anything close, but, like the 7100, are "Gold award" cameras.
I think the Silver Award is a BIG MISTAKE (and many EU and US articles seem to be on my side here...), a mistake that will cost you credibility. Not now, but in the mid-long term. If it matters.

Silver Award a BIG MISTAKE ? Really ?
Soft video lacks detail
iTR struggles to track fast moving subjects
Long screen blackout during live view shooting
No AF with continuous shooting in live view
No zebras to evaluate exposure
No focus peaking
No touch screen
No Wi-Fi
and no 4K like the GH4 that DPR gave a Gold award to,

Clueless people buy cameras by sales numbers.
