so: Is it just me who would love to have on such lens an automatic cap, like most compacts have? For me that would improve camera usability (by allowing one-handed operation) way more than if it was F1.4 or whatever.Wishful thinking.Snapping NEX pictures while on a bike. Or horse. Or while driving.For most shots you don't really need your left hand for anything else than taking the cap off, right?
Smartphone is the most popular excuse for the horrible camera.
As an XE1 user, this is a great news, but my workflow is now messy, C1 > LR.
I'm not still sure if I would completely move to C1 for now. I have 60 more days to decide...
Sigma and Fuji?
atlien991: Dumb product that will be obsolete right after you buy it.
smallcams: Here's a preliminary review: http://www.eoshd.com/content/9474/prototype-metabones-speed-booster-equipped-nex-7-vs-full-frame-5d-mark-iii
Prototype Metabones Speed Booster equipped NEX 7 *VS* full frame 5D Mark III – 1st comparison shots
Looks like this converter causes distortion.
vodanh1982: If Fuji jpeg is good why not show the algorithm to the public? Everyone will happy.
Why Fuji has to disclose their intellectual property to a shady American company who has almost unlimited software development resources.
Are you a spy from Adobe?
plasnu: All but X100S are gadgets, not the photographic tools.
A cardboard box with a pinhole in it IS a "photographic tool". The most cameras on the sow is "marketing tools" and that's the problem.
All but X100S are gadgets, not the photographic tools.
Ok, I will wait for 8k, and pass 4k.
It seems like only XTrans camera can do this without degrading the sensor sensitivity because X trans has huge green area at the sensor block, so PD is possible on them without disturbing the IQ.
Another Canon paid article?
Osscat: Interesting concept but why such a small field of view in the viewfinder only 90% and 80% for the other model announced.
Serious design flaw.
This is not a DSLR. 85% is a good number.
Nice review. Thanks.
The question is if they are better than Zeiss.
IrishhAndy: Thought I'd get in before the crowds. Looks like a nice cam but over prived and a kick in the teeth for XE 1 owners.
I think they should improve more expensive camera first. Strange life cycle.
photobeans: This is such a beautiful camera. I want to hold it, admire it, and use it.
How much is the price?
Rob Klein: What I would like to know is how many of these improvements can be added to the X100 by firmware upgrade? I really hope that some can as with the X10, when the RAW button was converted to a Q button with a firmware revision. Any thoughts?
Probably the focus peaking only...
