billorg: So what 3 NEW cameras are at the forefront of innovation right now - among all manufacturers?
Gx5 over lx100 tbh
Poss: Can’t stop laughing. This is beyond funny… marketing initiative…Whatever medication Canon’s management is on, I want it!
Remember the recent something big announcment in India which turned out to be a photo comp? Now this? Pathetic Canon, just keep on doing what you do, dont sully the 7dii success.
Dougbm_2: Damn just bought a Samyang 14mm!
If you are not pleased with your sample, you could maybe exchange it with another as you may be very well entitled to it under most retail circumstances.
APSC Canon appears to be where the real wide angle excitement is at the moment, so many offerings!
Tord S Eriksson: "Allison was quite smitten"
That's the comment your lady coworker gets by you guys?!
In this day and age?! And naturally her head is cut off.
Seems you "boys with toys" were smitten as well, by the "old guys" syndrome, where women at the best are allowed to hold the lenses, unless they are big and hefty, when you guys take over!
Well Tord, you are honest in your argument and that is respectable so I must apologize for reacting the way I did. I just do not think it is a deliberate decision on DPR's front to cast Alison in the way they did. Has she written any articles from the show - what is her role there from a professional stand point I wonder. The internet at large is currently rife with phantom gender issues and has me edgy over it.
I wonder if DPR will take a tour of the new Leica Factory.
***TRIGGER WARNING: SJW***
If Social Justice Warriors offend you(r sensibilities), please be warned that they have now infiltrated DPR. Commence emergency evacuation, and remember to "Check Your Privilege" on the way out you good ole' Patriarchy supporting camera nuts.
@Tord S Eriksson, it simply seems that a female reporter took a liking to particular camera, perhaps affectionately so, and that is a reason to see gender and equality issues where they simply do not exist. DPR does not need to defend itself from the likes of you and I sure hope you get this nonsense out of your head before it becomes terminal. People like what people like, it's merely opinion. I am smitten by my rollei 35T and also like my small petite (prime) lenses as pieces of technical marvel. I am absolutely not thinking of a person's body when I look at a camera and not thinking about gender roles within photographic equipment. Get a life!
Luckily the Samyang costs nothing and will probably resell for most of it's value. Just keep it in nice condition :)
Joseph: The body spec. is fine but $485US for the battery grip? Wow, just wow...
I hate grips anyway, spare battery in the pocket is all you need.
greypixelz: Interesting story!As far as I know, Nikon was producing optics for the imperial army before they ever copied the Contax RF. Btw, Nikon stands for Nippon Ikon, as in Zeiss Ikon ;)As it looks, Kwanon is much more of a grass root company than Nikon.
Yes ofcourse. Its a totally original camera, like the Nikon right?
rjx: Looks great!
But they need a tele 1:1 macro.
When Fuji released the 56mm, it had a wider aperture than they told us it would be. A nice surprise. I hope the 90mm is faster. Imagine if Fuji released the 90mm as a F1.4.
90mm is more than adequate. Its a 135/2 which really as fast as they come
Holy cow! Cynical Trolls Alert! Conspiracy! Conspiracy! God the only thing wrong with it in your opinions us the pricing. Gosh just shut with with the bleating white noise..
S B McCue: Well, I guess there won't be another Canon in my future. I like things that actually do what they're supposed to do without my having to "screwdriver" them. I've never run across any MS product that didn't require substantial "tweaking" ...
As opposed to what? And IOS run SLR? Lol you couldnt even change any basic settings. Plenty of opinion out there states canon is the tool for people who dont want to be fussed with learning the equipment. Apple actually almost seems perfect then... Trade usefulness and versatility for pretty. Maybe you would score an aluminum body.
thx1138: Ain't competition grand. Alas the Canikon duopoly have no qualms charging extortionate prices, especially on lenses. We've seen the Yen plummet in the last 18 months and yet prices are still rising.
Good on you Panasonic for shaming Sony into action.
Now tell me again how much that Nikon V3 was selling for?
With EVF and grip... Not a bad price really!
