atone2: Totally uninteresting before Fujifilm get rid of the ridiculous x-trans filter array. One must be blind not to see the awful rendering of x-trans rawfiles, especially in Lightroom. My original X100 still has much better IQ than the newer models. Money saved, wooha! :-)

I've got a tonne of razor sharp X-Pro1 files....the whole XTrans thing is overblown for 90% of the photos taken.

Jogger: Its a bit too large for what it is. Might as well get something like an RX1 at that size.

@BarnET - Smaller is not always better....I find the RX1 is too small in my hands.

I love all the Fuji haters out in force. I tell ya one thing...I have been far more impressed with the quality of the 23/35/18-55 Fuji lenses I have compared to most of the Canon lenses I've owned....

photo nuts: Canon EF 70-200 f/4 IS weighs 760 g. Price is US$1299.

Sony FE 70-200 f/4 OSS weighs 840 g. Price is US$1498.

Panasonic 35-100 f/2.8 OIS (equiv. to 70-200 f/5.6) weighs 360 g!!! Price is US$1498.

Fujifilm XF 50-140 f/2.8 (equiv. to 76-213 mm f/4.2) weighs 995 g. No stabilisation. Price is US$1599.

Wow. Just wow.

Fujifilm and Sony lenses provide ZERO weight advantage for their mirrorless mounts.

Did you even read the press release?? The Fuji has OIS (Optical Image Stabilization)....it is also only a 72mm filter thread compared to the Canon's 77mm. Also...it's a f2.8 lens from a speed perspective...not everything is about DOF.

StevenMajor: Swards and guns, and more guns. Lets teach our children about violence at the earliest age possible, Teach them that weapons will solve problems, at home, at school, and the work place.
The short sightedness of DPR (and so many others) is why America can't build prisons fast enough. Wake Up.

StevenMajor get over yourself already...seriously...I can't believe how many of you fools have to try and stoop to the 'gun debate'. Personally I don't like the photos...the processing is sub-par IMO, but the guns I could care less about.

Top Dog Imaging: And so Olympus and other mft cameras and lenses do not exist?

Nope...they don't exist. At least not in my world:)
Tongue in cheek of course...I understand your frustration.

McShan....if you want to get technical Chris posted first...so Theo is right. Plus...my pictures are much better than Chris's so Theo was right about that too (tongue in cheek...sort of).

On What is equivalence and why should I care? article (2034 comments in total)

At first I couldn't understand why so many are confused by what is really a fairly easy concept...
But then I remember that not everyone is old like me and came from the days of film where 35mm film was the 'standard'. I guess for a younger generation that never shot film...and can't afford a full frame digital...the way they 'see' through a 35mm lens on an APS-C (53mm) may seem perfectly normal to them....just a thought of an old man rambling here... (ok, I'm 42 but that's still kind of old).

JamesD28: Meanwhile, Canon are still....... nowhere to be seen.

@RealityCheck - I use iso 640 or less for 95% of my photos....so sucks for me that I shoot Canon and not Nikon....since I am missing out on increased dynamic range (bigtime) AND increased resolution. So, tell me again how I am 'miss-informed'.

Like I say..I'm a Canon guy but so many guys like you have your head in the sand it's not funny. Sony makes a much better sensor than Canon these days...spin it however you like but those are the facts.

That said....it's all very relative as the quality from my 'ancient' 5D2 is still amazing IMO.

nikon power: Don't let the price scare you.
Nikon's shutter durability is 200,000 cycles.
$3,299/200,000 = 1.6 cent per picture.
Other branded cameras' durability cycle may be the same or less but the EXIF from their photos won't show NIKON, the King of high end DSLR.

@nikonpower - thx for contributing the most ridiculous, stupid comment of the day.

Jake64: Here is a fact that I just made up but is true; 90 percent of the people that buy this camera or any of its variants are not professionals but instead people who still think more megapixels make you a better photographer.

What's your point?? 90% of photogs who buy DSLR's of any make/model are amateurs.

In reply to:

Just another Canon shooter: It would be interesting to see if the ISO 64 is a gimmick or it is actually an increase in the well capacity. If the latter, this would be something new in the FF world.

Well....that would be something if you're right!

larrytusaz: Why does anybody care about the video specifications of this high-grade stills camera? If I had $3000 to drop on this I'd do so for the amazing pictures it can take, not the Vimeo or YouTube clips it can record. It's an SLR, not a camcorder.

Larrytsuaz - I agree with you in part....I've no interest in video. That said....it would be stupid for Nikon to leave it out.

Hey Larry...were you one of the execs who ran Kodak??

K, I'm a troll because I own/owned Canon gear (a lot of it) and yet I feel I have the right to criticize the company as their sensors need improving? Seems logical. You, aside from baiting me into this pointless tirade have not come up with a single valid point...which is what unintelligent people usually do who are unable to win an argument. I'm out.

Serickmetz - I like how anyone who criticizes Canon HAS to be a troll. I've owned the Ellan II, EOS3, 20D, 5D, 1DSII, 7D, 5D2 and S90...don't believe me, check out my gallery.

Yes, Canon makes great cameras but their sensor tech is behind the times, to say otherwise is ridiculous.

Seriously?? I'm a Canon guy but they are WAYYYY behind in sensor tech at the moment. The 5D3 is a GREAT camera stuck with 2009 sensor tech. Canon better come up with something big in the next 6 months because many of us are tired of waiting.
