wepwawet: From the blog:">Many photographers are used to taking pictures with autofocus these days. Why does the new lens only have manual focusing?We want the user to have the freedom to employ the focusing position as an artistic means, since we are dealing here with one of the most important tools that a photographer has at his disposal."
And this is prevented by autofocus, how... ?
Because all AF/MF switches have broken off my lens
Fuji zoom lenses are half a stop faster to compensate the fact that they cheat half a stop ISO on their bodies.
It's ok, Fuji, I (we) still love you ;)
GEEZ, the IQ180 can even resolve the texture of the backing paper, there's a scratch on the right of the water colours on the top left.
I like the IQ180 as a benchmark, how about also adding drum scanned film?
Rather than wanting to know what the iPhone means to the photographer, I'd want to know what does a photographer mean nowadays???
qwertyasdf: Optical correction of distortion is such a novelty these days, kudos Fuji!
I mean for mirrorless.

I don't own this camera, but if this camera is "ULTRA-CHIC ANSWER FOR CAPTURING AMAZING IMAGES"Then there must be no words in my dictionary that can describe the pictures the D800E takes. (Or even the Panasonic LX3 for that matter)
The Casio TRYX is very successful in Asia
HendeHoq: Where FinePix REAL 3D?
It's not one of a kind i guess?
There's absolutely no industry whatsoever in Hong Kong, guess where all this pollution come from....
Weird...while Oly and Panny makes DSLR styled bodies their flagship modle...Sony makes it their budget model...
Anyways, at $400, I think it's extremely competitive.
So it has the size disadvantage of a DSLR, and the lack of fast PDAF for a mirrorless...can't people just get a grip?
How come we are so backwards nowadays.no built-in MP3 player in the Canon 1DX?!?! Cannot believe it
If it had one, I would hang it round my neck with headphones plugged in, and be the ultimate hipster.
Well, at least you can win when comparing who's the longest.If I have one, I'll proudly wear it on my waist.
SIGMA IS AWESOME period.
If there is a score for looks, the Q would score high. With so many colour combinations, one would suit you.Why don't the D4 and 1DX offer customization, after all they are premium products worthy of premium service.
Equivalency debate starting in 3...2...1
AngryCorgi: I gotta be honest, I think this is the weakest "First Impressions Review" I've seen on DPR.
Yes, previews were used to be 3 pages.Aren't the office excited about this new offering?
Mike99999: @goshigoo: "Also, IQ wise, 6D + 85 f/1.8 @ f/2.4 could be better than this lens.35mm FF still has it's value when shallow Dof is needed"
No. A Leica full frame camera is king, yes, but by no means good value. Canon and Nikon FF cameras are for dorks. What's the point of all this shallow DoF when your ridiculous camera gets in the way all the time. A full frame DSLR is to photography as a cargo truck is to driving cars.
A cargo truck is what professional truck drivers use to get a load from A to B, sure, but in my spare time I'd much rather enjoy driving a fine German or Italian automobile.
And in this realm, a Leica M9 or Sony RX1 really wins. But the system Panasonic and Olympus have built up is a very fair alternative, with great lenses.
goshigoo is right, and you are completely wrong.
