I would have thought that an Apple Leica collaboration would have been much more suitable!

HarryLally: Yes, what's a JOEG?

It's a JPEG but where you go "O" instead of going for a "P"

On article Pride and joy: shooting the Olympus PEN-F in Austin (285 comments in total)

My only criticism is the film grain in the pictures. As someone who has pushed Tri-X to ISO3200 and ISO6400 in dilute Rodinal, the grain just isn't convincing. Not to me anyway.

Apart from that, I like the camera and would probably buy one IF I had the money. I may even dig out my old Pen FT instead!

Mike FL: By using old Nikon D7100 as a base line, X-Pro2 almost inflates the ISO by ONE STOP in base ISO.

What a surprise even lot of people indicated FUJI is well known for inflates the ISO, but still..

.. WOW.

@AshMills

Just had a look at your website. Some really excellent work there!

@Jon Schick

I think you should get your camera back! I mean, it is yours and your daughter doesn't really need it does she! And you do have that important photo project coming up as well!

That's why I still use my Olympus E-1

In reply to:

Wye Photography: Please give me one good reason why I would want this lens on my Leica M2?

Thank you pictureAngst, if fact, that is a good idea, and no doubt someone somewhere (with money to burn) will compare this lens with a Leica lens. I can't possibly afford a Summilux instead using a humble Summicron DR which cost me £350.

I have difficulty getting my cat off the bed/sofa, and considering he weighs almost a stone I don't fancy hauling him up any mountain at all. But if you ever read on the BBC "Man and Cat die on Mountain" you know what's happened!

Best Regards

I have an authentic Russian Industar 50mm. Lovely dreamy images and wonderfully soft bokeh for surreal and ethereal picture making (after inhalation of Vodka). Yours for only £500!

Any takers?

Angrymagpie: Rich Russian heritage?

It's a bit iffy whenever a manufacturer has to include statements like this as a selling point.

@Angrymagpie

Rich Russian heritage!

Made by Soviet prisoners and with Vodka quality control. How more of a rich heritage do you want?

ybizzle: Who in their right mind would pay such ridiculous price when you can just buy the original for much less? Better yet, just get the much superior Canon LTM 1.4 which blows this thing away at half the cost. Must be an early April fools joke. ;)

@SonyA7Rslinger.

But, but, the Canon LTM 1.4 isn't an authentic Russian!

YAY! I had one of these on my Fed 3. I had some quite good results from it as well.

In reply to:

bfrankpoto: This is going to sound mean, but I don't care about film simulation. I can't imagine many professionals using that on a regular basis. I would love to hear if this is something that could realistically be considered as a replacement for dSLR gear. The viewfinder issue is troubling. Sounds like using a 70-200 equivalent may not work very well.

@bfrankpoto

If I wanted film simulation I would use, erm, film. It'll be a lot cheaper too!

On photo Rainbow in the My Best Photo of the Week challenge (2 comments in total)
In reply to:

RuthC: Absolutely magical, Wye Photography, and it has earned you second place in this week's challenge where there were so many excellent entries. This capture epitomises the essence of great photography: just the right amount of colour, light and shade, attention to detail, much to view and consider within the picture, and most importantly, your ability to 'catch' the moment when the small rainbow of light lit up the distant fields. It is a pleasure to view this masterpiece. Ruth :-)

Many thanks for your comments RuthC, much appreciated.
