  • Some people might find it hard to believe that such an outstanding lens would be unwanted by anyone. But all people don't have the same needs and preferences. While this lens is probably the best ...
  • Commented on Sigma announces dp1 Quattro article

    I just don't get it, as many others have suggested.

    Since this is a single focal point fixed lens camera, wouldn't an optical viewfinder that slid into the hot shoe make more sense? Like the ones...

    I just don't get it, as many others have rightfully pointed out.

    Taste is highly objective. Some actually do prefer bizarre styling, while most don't.

    I think market share will show what most people prefer.

  • Commented on Sigma announces dp1 Quattro article

    Sigma really has found their market niche.

    Their cameras are designed for people who really value "being different" above all other considerations. It doesn't matter if they cost too much or...

  • What ever happened to the XQD memory card?

    It wasn't that long ago that the Nikon D4 was the "first camera to use the XQD card," was it also the last?

  • In a couple of years when cards with this much capacity are selling for $19.95, they will completely replace flash drives, CD Rom, DVD and BluRay storage devices. A card this big can replace a...

  • Hey... why not? This week's Galaxy Gear prototype leak didn't leave much to the imagination. Samsung's new wearable was expected to debut with a built-in camera, speakers and a relatively clunky ...
  • Len... looking at your gear list I see you already own the Fuji X100T. The camera that won't be available until "mid November" according to Fuji. Now, I have to track down those people who "had it" ...
  • There are two ways to look at this camera.

    Either, it is a very expensive fixed lens camera, or it is a bargain priced mini version of the Sony RX1.

    I like to look at it the second way.

  • Commented on Fujifilm X100T Overview preview

    For sure... one of those four is the same guy who "already owned" the new Fuji 56mm f/1.2 APD lens.

    That's the lens that was announced earlier today and "will be available in December."

  • Commented on Fujifilm X100T Overview preview

    I felt the same way until I realized that I use my 17mm f/1,8 lens (34mm equivalent focal length) on my Olympus EM5 around 90% of the time.

    For many of us, 35mm seems to be an ideal focal length...

  • If you want the smallest lenses.... then... there is always Pentax Q. They have a telephoto zoom lens that weighs only 90 grams, and costs around $250. I think it is called the "06 Telephoto Zoom"...

  • Dave, I'm not a Fuji X user, and I probably will never be one. I'm pretty much committed to M4/3. But I still get excited when I see high quality lenses like this one for any MILC...

  • If someone wants it, and is willing to pay for it, then it cannot be unnecessary. Fuji is approaching the point that Olympus and Panasonic are already at: a fairly complete lens catalog.

    Once you...

  • Absolutely no one bought into the Fuji X system because they thought it was the cheapest.

    They knew it was fairly expensive, even when compared to similar APSC MILC systems from Sony and Samsung....

  • Forget about "dueling formats" for a moment... this looks like a great lens for Fuji X users who need a high quality telephoto zoom lens.

    This solves a problem for them, and does it much more...
