In reply to:

michalc: Hmm, Olympus XZ-2? What's all the fuss about?

EXACTLY !

Apart from wifi, there are not really "big" new thing.. And with its lower price tag, great accessories (lens adapter, mic, macro light arms, evf) Olympus XZ-2 is still more serious to consider.

On Opinion: Do we really need the Fuji X30? article (288 comments in total)

The deal is easy!

BRING SOMETHING NEW !

or

FIT THE GOOD OLD TECHNOLOGY TO MY SHIRT POCKET !

The issue is; they brought nothing else but controls & handing over older model! Same sensor, same glass. Bigger bill & size...

Well, no thanks.

(PS. There can be people who are waiting for it. I am not among them. It's my total personal idea.)

On Ricoh expands Q series with Pentax Q-S1 article (352 comments in total)
In reply to:

Ben O Connor: I wish to own this cutie. Especially for its tiny sensor. YES YOU RED IT RIGHT!

Sensor is the best for razor sharp C mount lenses. Surely its more like portrait-Tele for its crop factor. (12mm C lens would be 56mm for this one) and sharp as 0.75-1.3 !!!

Sharing can be managed by a eye-fi card somehow, but fixed rubbish resolution screen is no brainer.

And it also has a great built in flash even many microfourthirds and old NEX cameras does not!

Desr DeadCamFan, we are talking about a "photo enthusiasts oriented camera" here. Sure you can make money from the images by ANY CAMERA YOU HAVE, but it makes YOU a pro. NOT YOUR CAM.

What I mean is; if you have relatively small sensor, more C mount lens will fit to your photography. Because of the C lenses general diameter! While medium format lenses are thick as chimney, full frame lenses are more like mid size water pipe line. Comparing to them C lenses are thin as a pencil. Now try to fit a pencil front of a huge full frame sensor ! Yes's !!! All you see is a tiny hole !

I am mentioning the from factor & sensor size combo. Nothing else. But you are a FAN(ATICT) so... I am done with it. Bye !

As an E-PM1 owner, I wished to used those lenses. But they show strong vignetting, especially the wide ones.

But smaller crops are excellent. Some 1" sensors also shows vignetting but better than M4/3. Pentax Q with 1/1.7" is just perfect !

If anyone have been microfourthird enthusiasts for about 3 years, probably has at least two different lens and at least one of them fast as F 1.8. So you prepared for any new technical improvements since 2009 (since E-P was released)

Man its E mouth but full frame. It vignets like a key hole. Sure E mouth very adaptable to vintage lenses, which belong to previous century.

Interesting comparison, I kinda think that GH-4 will be the winner in the end.

On Olympus takes Pen E-PL6 beyond Asia article (76 comments in total)

Sad not to see; proper tinelapse (as in OMD EM-10), no built in wifi, same low resolution rear screen...

I seriously wondering, what are the serious benefit over E-PL5 !

I'll keep waiting for E-P5 discounts in Xmas or brand new PEN model with EM10 specs.

On Canon and Microsoft sign patent agreement post (73 comments in total)
In reply to:

Ben O Connor: A full frame sensored, Canon EF mouthed Nokia ? Or 5D mark V, that allows phone calls to friends !!!

Both sounds exciting :D

Well the thing is, canon does not have too much to offer Nokia really.

Remeber, Nokia has a deal with CarlZeiss thus even Sony can't release a smartphone which has a Zeiss lens on it.

And after all canon is not known by their 3rd party accessories. I really wonder what they can offer for Nokia. My first comment was a joke. (for whom, that did not get it :)

On Nikon 1 V3 First Impressions Review preview (432 comments in total)
In reply to:

Ben O Connor: What I like about 1" ILC cam is encouraging to use TV lenses (C-mouth) on it, without vignetting (I hope!)

but what I don't understand is clearly, why there are less mpx than Sony 's ? I believe there will be wider lenses are on the way. However I am in M43 world, this is a nice stuff.

And what I surprised is, there were error two times, hence my comments are here 3 of them in a row :)
