On Fujifilm X-E2 Preview preview (454 comments in total)
In reply to:

Najinsky: It was needed, having the better sensor in the X100S made the Xp/e seem already out of date.

Shame they didn't add a small hump and a centrally mounted finder (seriously!). Side finders become less useful with longer zooms where you need to look up from the camera to locate your subject.

With all the other features and the lens map, it would have been a contender for me. But I'm tired of compromises, what I have (OM-D) is really good, so manufacturers are going to have to work a bit harder to make me switch.

Note, I have no issue with side-finders for up to around 100mm. But beyond 200, I really want it centred over the lens.

>I think it's brilliant they have a side-finder

My wife focusses with the left eye and here it is not so good.

On Fujifilm XF 55-200mm F3.5-4.8 R LM OIS review preview (136 comments in total)

> And we can't totally ignore the fact that at around $700 / £580, this is one of the most expensive 'small' telephoto zooms on the market.

What would be a small zoom at the same price point that could match it in quality? I find the good Panasonic 35-100mm expensive. This zoom seems fair priced for the quality it delivers (I own and love it).

And yes, AF sucks . Not that big deal for me as I like to use tele on more static objects.

By the way the lens hood is not that great for mounting. Feels like these older Canon lens hoods.

Why is the excellent Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L IS USM missing.

On DxOMark examines lenses for the Canon EOS 5D Mark III news story (60 comments in total)

>1. How can a 22.3 MP camera get a P-Mpix score of almost 23? See articles 1st Sharpness graph.

Interesting. But how would they rate a Sigma DP2M? It has more visual resolution than most 24MP cameras.

Can anybody tell me what the posted diagram is about and what DxO is telling us.

Uwe Steinmueller: Interesting concept but one number will hardly tell it all (corners, f-stops)

Here is a shocking graph from the DxOMark document:

Would like to know why the excellent Sigma 35mm f/1.4 perform that low on the 7D?

Now corrected. Now it makes sense to me.

On Samsung Galaxy S3 Camera Review post (54 comments in total)

>The Galaxy S3 achieves a good DxO Mark score of 72 which is means it is trailing very slightly behind the iPhone 5, iPhone 4S and HTC One X in our list of the best smartphone cameras.

A link to these reviews would be helpful.
