ephankim: Why aren't all the lens prototypes (28/2, 90/2.8 G Macro, 35/1.4 ZA & 24-240) included in this report?

Yes, they are so professional they probably are.

tompabes2: Nice modern design! Finally someone is moving on. I really don't understand why we're still designign cameras as they were 30 years ago.

I agree.

On Fujifilm X30 First Impressions Review preview (447 comments in total)
In reply to:

John McMillin: Just glancing at the front photo of the x30, I get the irrational impression that Fujifilm believed a large logo was a more important use of space than the OVF window.

Now I'm doubting their commitment to hybrid OVFs overall. If the XP1's replacement lacks that unique feature, my X-lenses will have no future for me.

Good

vFunct: This camera isn't for the idiot that needs a bigger sensor to get rid of noise and blur.

These are the same idiots that can't figure out how to get a good shot form their cell phone cameras, and whine that their photos would magically be better if they had a bigger sensor.

Best camera ever.

BillGarrett: I don't understand the effort put in to producing lenses like this for FF. Why (would a customer) spend all the money on FF and carry the weight and size of FF -- presumably all for the image quality of FF -- and then throw away so much of that IQ with the compromises inherent in a convenience lens?

Casual photographers who want an all-in-one lens should buy a well specified compact at 1/4 or 1/5 the price of a FF body + convenience lens. Or reevaluate the impressive IQ delivered by the latest generation of smartphones they may well already have in their pockets!

There are many of them out there.

ryan2007: It is clear Adobe is not designed by 90% of the people that use the software. We don't use it everyday for 10 hours a day forever. However, we may be able to spend the money to buy it.

I said and will say again it is bad business to make someone Rent software. Bad Bad Adobe!

Pirating is still faster, cheaper and more reliable especially for folks without a credit card.

(unknown member): I wanted to hate CC and the rental model--I really did. But I caved and bought into the $9.99 deal a few weeks ago when it was still a "special offer." I'm sold on it.

First: Photoshop CC is significantly improved from CS6, in ways many people don't talk much about. The Liquefy filter, for example, is much "smarter" in finding the contours you want to warp while holding those you don't. Less freeze masking required, much higher quality transitions.

Second: I think the Creative Cloud UI is fantastic. Installation was easy and fast; installing / removing / updating / syncing apps across my computers has worked as advertised--slick and trouble-free.

Third: the little bonuses aren't so little. Adobe Typekit web and desktop fonts are awesome. Love the client collaborative possibilities--comments, revisions, etc. with creative cloud storage. The Behance pro network is serious.

The whole thing strikes me as a lot of value for the price of one Subway sandwich or Starbucks coffee a month.

Two sandwiches or coffees a month? Not here in Singapore. :)

Prognathous: It's a trap!

Quote from Adobe's membership contract:

"The price of your one-year commitment (as reflected in the monthly installment amounts) may change for your next annual renewal, and we’ll provide you notice of a change by email"

In short, nothing but a teaser price. Get ready to pay through the nose as soon as you've created enough project files and can't properly open them by anything else. Good luck being Adobe's hostage.

It's not a trap, it's common practice and knowledge.

Elandreth: Fascinating! Maybe in a few years, interchangeable lensor cameras, like the Ricoh GXR, will become the new norm.

Not gonna happen.

In reply to:

Kyle Logan: To me, this converter as well as the wide angle one indicate that the demand is there for Fuji to focus on creating a wide aperture APS-C x200 or X30 with 1.5 sensor with a small 2-2.8 28-50 zoom. I've considered these converters, but after much thought I really don't see the point of carrying these around. Seems like they defeat the purpose and beauty of the x100x series in the first place. Perhaps it's just me, but if a want more flexibility in a small package, I'd probably just buy an X20 and hope that a future model has a larger sensor.

Nope.

Frank C.: can't wait to see Sony kill the resale value of today's uber-expensive 'old school' lenses....and all it took was a lil ol' bending machine and probably some WD-40! LOL Lens manufacturers must have had their "uh ohhh..." moment by now ;_)

Your old lenses won't work with this curved sensor.

AndersSJ: Please tell me when you start 3-D printing the sensor directly on the rear surface of the rear lens element. No dust, no mis-alignment, no stray light, no ..... camera?

They already did that some years ago.

Good move! A nice addition to my EOS M2.

Any random full-frame Sony, Toshiba or Fujitsu sensor.

That has nothing to do with the above comment, a totally different topic.

forpetessake: Fuji is moving swiftly to become the most respected lens manufacturer in the world: a combination of high quality, affordable price, and compact designs is hard to beat.

The most respected lens manufacturer in the world? :D
