  • I kind of understand your sentiment.

    I personally prefer an article with several short videos.

    Single long videos is a hurdle. (Most annoyingly: I'm not always at leisure to turn the sound on...

  • I think you have missed my point. I'm in no way contending the winner of the roundup.

    The list makes no sense, because it tries to include only the "new" cameras, and judging the class of the...

  • I understand position of the DPR and yet....

    The list makes no sense, because the best entry-level mirrorless camera is a discounted 1yo mid-/top-level model.

  • Sensor warms-up and cools-offs. Impurities in the glass expand and contract. The impurities start small, but with the time, they "carve" a hole in the glass which might become large enough to be...

  • If you ask me, even a f/7 pancake prime is better than no pancake prime at all. But I can easily imagine a f/5.6 or f/4.0 (software-corrected) pancake to be quite popular.

    IMO if FF wouldn't...

  • I have no illusion that FF pancake can be as small as a m43 pancake.

    But even if one dumbly scales up the m43 pancakes (multiply the dimension by 2) the size is still much smaller than the FF...

  • Compromise isn't that huge. The m43 system is the evidence of that. (And FF has even more headroom to compensate for the software corrections.) First.

    Second, a FF sensor with high MP count might...

  • Leicas are high-end only in the "luxury" sense of the word.

  • > Without being too pedantic [...]

    I wish the same "not pedantic" worked for the 35mm FOV equivalence.

    Every time somebody mentions "24-70mm eq lens" everybody's up in arms explaining that "how...

  • I have expected to see the Sony A99 as one of the picks on the last page. But otherwise, pretty unsurprising conclusions.

    The most interesting bit for me is the explosion of the number of the FF...

  • "Manly" bag? for a 13" laptop? Of course not.

  • "Manly" bag? for a 13" laptop? You kidding?

  • Not really. They have messenger bags for laptops only up to 13". 15" is pretty much the standard size for power users, gamers and IT pros.

  • Any "manly" variant available?

    I spent some time looking for a messenger bag (for laptop plus something like bottle of water/lunch box/camera) but found nothing suitable.

  • Ludicrous.

    How are we supposed then enjoy the fullness of the full frameness of the full frame camera?!

    How are we supposed then ridicule the puny frail cameras with the teeny-tiny...

  • > I bought it, and I'm not sure it is now.

    It is not. Just checked. I assumed that it is weather-sealed since it is a kit for weather-sealed camera. But it is not. :(

    Grave omission on Fuji's...

  • Lenses are still too large for my taste.

  • "No, the company going bust is Olympus. Their medical endoscope business keeps them alive."

    Their medical business is highly valued. (Cameras are something like 10% of their business.) Actually...
