HowaboutRAW: At least on the English parts of the Carl Zeiss website, there's no information on Fuji X mount Zeiss lenses--even as an upcoming thing.
A search of the Zeiss website for the terms "Fuji X" provides no results.
1.) The blog is part of the official website.
2.) Dr. Michael Pollmann, Consumer Lenses Product and Program Manager says:"Since the introduction of Sony’s NEX-7 and Fujifilm’s X-Pro 1, it became obvious that CSC cameras required quality lenses. So we decided that the time was ripe to bring such lenses to the market."
"The new lenses will be available for Sony E-bayonet (Sony NEX cameras) and for Fujifilm X-bayonet (Fujifilm X cameras)."
These are two official statements from an official representative on the official site of Zeiss (that you could not find even when I gave you the correct link).
If you can't find any information on Zeiss lenses for Fuji it does not mean Fuji is lying.It means you do not know how to search:http://blogs.zeiss.com/photo/en/?p=2864
I have a 7D and no intention to by a FF.Why should I?I own several EF-S lenses and I do not want to ditch them.An APS-C sensor is better than a FF for wildlife photography.I need that extra reach.
With all the technical progress we can have APS-C sensor that produce good results in low light. (Not as good as FF, but still very good.)
I’m willing to wait for a 7D II for another half year – not much longer.If Canon plans to scare of the customers who have bought EF-S lenses I will move on and never look back.
Sam Carriere: At the risk of sounding perhaps a little bit churlish, I rather wish Fujifilm would get on with the production of their promised X-mount lenses before trying to turn my head with more new camera models.
There is a road map for the lenses, that was published a long time ago.As long a Fujifilm sticks to this time table I don't see any need to complain.The road map can be found here: http://www.fujifilm.com/products/digital_cameras/xf_lens/roadmap/
Wow, from Canada you can see the back side of the moon ;)
zinedi: Why OVF. EVF is a cheap fake of optical viewfinder. It cannot even far-off simulate analogue natural look and feeling of OVF - feeling of nature.EVF is harmful for human health - the eye was made by nature for natural analogue-fluent light. The flickering LED light is harmful - not only for eye.EVF is cheaply constructed to be able even simulate OVF. When there is 6000x4000pix/250Hz 32million colours viewfinder I shall see if it is comparable with OVF and harmless and maybe.. .EVF is and for long time still will be lagging after on-line reality - so it is difficult to do sport with this. And the picture not beeing fluent in panoraming e.g. is also rough and harmful for human health.I have 20 years old SLR with pentaprism OVF - still functional. Do you believe that these small electronic dummy viewfinders will work at least 5 years?
Thousands of photographers every year get poked in the eye by their EVF.Some even are attacked and stabbed to death - in their sleep.The Mayans prophezised the world will end on Dec. 21th because the EFV will destroy the world.That's how harmfull EVF are./irony off
John Koch: Didn't the storm tide subside after the peak on the night of October 29? The photo suggests that Battery Park was still under water on the night of October 31, when Baan is supposed to have shot the picture from a helicopter holding a Canon 1D X by hand and using a 24-70mm lens on full open aperture, 25,000 ISO, with the shutter at 1/40. Plausible?
How do people get assignments to fly over Manhattan two days after a catastrophe, when half the people have no power, then fly off to Haiti, where more than half never had it?
Well, other Dutchmen do some miraculous flying about too.
If you call somebody a liar you should have more than an uneducated guess.
