thxbb12: I very welcome the 100-400, but another 25mm? Really?
Here we go again with the redundant lenses! There are alread two 25mm lens: 1.4 and 1.7. Yayaya none have IS, but there are several holes in the line up that need to be adressed and are much higher priority IMO: UWA prime 8 or 10mm, standard fastish zoom (eg. 12-50 f2.8-4), fastish tele (eg. 50-200 f4) and a 17 f1.4

After waiting for years, I finally gave up and moved to Fuji. Their lens lineup makes a lot more sense than MFT. I can't be happier :-)

My thoughts exactly...

futile32: I always get this the wrong way round so correct me if I'm wrong, but "4:1 macro" would mean 4x life? Should it be "1:4 macro" ?

Yup, you're correct, 4:1 means 4x.

qwertyasdf: Seems that this lens has horrendous field curvature, from the sample picture here:

http://www.43rumors.com/first-few-image-samples-taken-with-the-voigtlander-nokton-105-mm-f095-lens/

The text indicate that it's the 10.5mm.
But in that scene, the problem is exacerbated.

I personally have the same bad experience with the CV 21/1.8.

Well....the last time I heard Pentax delaying some stuff (Mysterious voice: FF camera), it was delayed a decade +....

On Canon EOS Rebel T6s Review preview (455 comments in total)

I never understand why the top LCD screen is a good thing. I have used many many different models, and prefer looking at the settings in the rear LCD, isn't that a more convenient location???

I don't see the legendary Leica rendering here.
In fact, I've never seen it anywhere.

In reply to:

john van rosendaal: So, if I read the conclusion about image quality then what you're really saying is that it's a great 300-450mm lens and a good lens up to 600mm if you use it at f/7.1 or f/8 and beyond. So, it's a 300-450mm f/5-6.3 lens or a 150-600mm f/8 lens, right?

While this article presents that with a positive spin, which is fine considering it's a relatively cheap lens, what it really means is that it's not a lens you can use beyond 450mm wide open, which severely limits its usability in anything but great light (as I found out myself renting it to shoot eagles during the winter).

No, it's a 150-600mm F5.0-6.3 lens

Not sure if it promotes creativity or restraints it...apparently one can only put the subject dead center.

On Fujifilm X-T10 First Impressions Review preview (540 comments in total)
In reply to:

qwertyasdf: Looks properly retro, except for the typical Fuji cheapish fake leatherette.

When I look back at the likes of Canon A-1, Nikon F series and Pentax ME, I always wonder why the heck modern SLR / DSLR grew so much in size...

Thanks, nice pic.
But I really hope one day I can see one of the classics revived in the form of a mirrorless camera, and of course, full frame.

JeanPierre Thibaudeau: Exceptional colour rendition, nicely detailed even if a bit soft.

I wonder what mostly gives these beautiful colours, the body or the lens?

Anyway, a wonderful combo.

I also find the colours quite pleasant, how did DPR achieve that?

Colours from my A7 are not even crap, they are utter shi*t.

viking79: It always amazes me how complicated modern zoom lenses are, and that they work as well as they do. Beautiful.

It amazes me even more how people designed lenses before the invention of computers.

One word: I'm buying this lens.

qwertyasdf: I have said this many times, all mirrorless companies are doing something wrong...why are there no affordable ultra wide angles?!?!!?!

This is except Canon's 11-22mm, and it's also the reason the EOS M is my most used camera.
Fuji & Sony's options are too expensive & bulky. Olympus's 9-18 is expensive given it's quality.

Do they even know their target market? Travelers would adore a lightweight ultra wide setup.

Canon!!!

I never think that CSCs were "help compact camera users progress toward something more capable and flexible".

It's about removing the mirror box - that bulky, precision mechanical, production cost.
