Reading the comments and am struck that we haven't heard from the models and how the WA lens make them look.

On article Manfrotto introduces six new monopods for XPRO range (31 comments in total)
In reply to:

Gollan: I'm very happy with my Manfrotto XPRO 055XPROB tripod, so I would consider one of their monopods, but it is difficult to see how it will be better unless I can also carry a tiny tripod head instead of the gimbal. Do you use a monopod with a modern image-stabilized supertelephoto zoom for wildlife and if so what kind of tripod head do you use?

No head...just lock it on the pod. If you need any movement, just lift.

Hopefully Sony will dribble out announcements over the next few months and will constantly be in DP's news unlike other manufacturers who cling to past glories and have nothing to contribute.

Is the new 8fps with no blackout a setting or does the camera start doing the slideshow effect after 8 frames?

dwill23: looks like the Canon 1DX2 can do twice the shots per second in live view. oh wait, it's 6x the price. hahaha

If the 1dxII follows in the footsteps of the 7dII, the claimed fps could possibly be overstated.

BostonC: The videos are nice. The tracking is the most impressive amoung MLI. But if in the middle of shooting video, you want to change the focus point, you have to use the thumb pad step..step left step...step down and recording all the garbage in between, w/o a touch screen to control the AF pt.

With all those AF points, where would a fat finger point for AF? It works well with a less dense pattern.

In reply to:

Bhima78: Is there a reason to copy canon on making the telephoto zoom lens look like a stormtrooper instead of black? Is it because the lens overheats often or something?

Canon copied Minolta with the white & Minolta is now Sony.

"waxed coating" is out of the 19th century...I hope you can renew it with silicone spray or nano coating.

steelhead3: A 35mm can be designed for close in work or infinity...that is one reason this is a fun lens size. A lot of different 35s can excel and render differently. As for star bursts, get a filter.

I'm teasing but your tulip picture would look a lot better with stars flare coming out of the top of the sun...you may be able to sell some to the religious people.

Fuji is one smart company...wrapping older Sony sensors in a Hassy styled retro camera allows for great cost ratio and they only have to concentrate on lenses.

Designed with Audi....hope it doesn't cheat on the specs.

I haven't counted the points but B&H have a nice collection

Another mention of Sony...everyone knows that if Canon wanted to put out a MF sensor it would be better and with adapter, you could use all the Canon lenses.

Just imagine Nasa had the foresight to put one of these contraptions on the Mars rover. One of the CIA cameras use the lots of little cameras from phones to get super high resolution picts when all combined together.
