On Fujifilm updates X-mount lens roadmap to end of 2015 article (171 comments in total)
In reply to:

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

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

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.

On Sony drops list price of Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 article (201 comments in total)
In reply to:

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!

On Leica M Monochrom now available in grayscale (sort of) article (137 comments in total)
In reply to:

Dirk Nuary: $7700 for just BW camera? You are too bad panda.... Just go for D4s that win in every aspects.

If you like rangefinders, digital and b&w photography, its a real win. Better b&w photos than the D4. No colour filter on the sensor too.

On BBC examines 100 years of Leica article (24 comments in total)
In reply to:

SeeRoy: "...it hasn't changed in 100 years..."
An imbecilic statement - typical of the hyperbole associated with this brand. I stopped watching at that point. Imagine TV directors insisting on the matchless superiority of the Image Orthicon.

Shamael, expensive yes, over priced? No. Lenses are small batch made in Germany. Went to the factory and saw it myself. Hand assembled in the Fatherland. It is excellent quality gear.

On Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark II Review preview (657 comments in total)
In reply to:

Brilliantine Stick Inesct: Another fail by the big 2 (Canon & Nikon). They are hanging onto an outdated product strategy while the ILC market is changing the rules of the game. The Fuji TX and the OMD are showing how to do high end consumer product. What does Nikon do? Release a fat burger DF without manual focus aids... Are they mad?

DF is not relevant to this article and therefore hardly Nikons fail.

roxics: WTF Samsung! No 1080p screen and no 4K video? Why bother?

No 4k vid? Who gives a sheet - if you are making a film use some real equipment. Yes the best camera you have is the camera you have with you, but, the best possible equipment is the device dedicated to that role.

Not the trolls obviously. If you shoot Leica its good news.

On Ricoh to offer limited edition Pentax Q7 Premium Kit article (89 comments in total)
In reply to:

joshxiv: This is actually tempting for me. Although the only lens I'm really interested in in the current Q line-up is the '06' f/2.8 tele-zoom. A Q7 + the 06 would pair nicely with my GR & RX1. The 08 lens would be a nice bonus though.

If Pentax could come out with an f/1.0 wide-ish walk around lens, maybe 28/35/40mm EFOV, it would round out the system pretty well. I think given the small sensor, an f/1.0 lens wouldn't be obscenely large. It would probably be only slightly larger than the largest zoom for the Q.

Cosina voigtlander did it for m43.

On Apple applies for dual-sensor camera patent post (71 comments in total)
In reply to:

MikeFairbanks: I'm looking forward to smartphones without a dead back.

In other words, put a screen on the back of the camera for more mundane things (time, temperature, better selfies, etc.).

It seems that both faces should be used.

I agree, didnt Samsung have compacts that did that. Would it be cheaper to just put identical front and back cameras though
