Paul Farace: So I see these images in the same positive light I see WWII Allied planes, defenders of freedom. And they sadly killed thousands of women and children. But my brain is able to comprehend complexities and nuances that some of your leftist brains cannot. All of the recent drone strikes have not killed more than one WWII bombing mission and at the same time have killed many monsters who would behead the dumazzez commenting below.
Marty4650: Would you buy a lens from a company that can't get their website to work?
Just sayin'.... this is pretty basic marketing. You issue a press release with a website listed. Then the website doesn't work. This doesn't bode well.
A bit off topic, but note that 'basic' or standard marketing practices aren't prevalent in most developing countries. We expect it in the U.S. (assuming you're American) and other developed countries with large private sectors. The Chinese didn't have much of an advertising industry until around the 80s when they started to shift their economy to more of a capitalist model. The U.S. has had decades to develop a history and traditions in advertising so it follows that U.S. consumers expect certain things and standards from a company that Chinese consumers do not. This is changing though.
The bokeh makes me dizzy.
nathantw: I like the way this looks, but I'm sure if I buy it people will think it's a murse (man purse). It just has "that look" of my wife's purse. Leica sell other bags at their store in San Francisco that are probably better for guys (different colors and types) like the Brixton bags. https://www.leicastoresf.com/store/other/cases-bags
Murse to go with your moobs?
You need to zoom in to 100%
Peter Bendheim: Some of you people who are actually complaining about the Fuji update saying it should have been nailed from the start are really just a bunch of over indulged, consumerist spoil brats. Fuji at least continually improve their products. This release was in all probability stuff that Fuji have learnt between the XT1 and the XT10. And pro user feedback. And Fuji has improved an already excellent product.
Honestly some of you should really just grow up somewhat. And have some gratitude.
Or, it's a brilliant ploy to increase brand loyalty and improve perception of the company: hold back a feature that the camera is technically capable of and enable it via firmware later while framing it as an 'improvement'
Don't get me wrong, I own a X-E2 myself and like it a lot, but Fuji is a company like any other out to edge out their competition and make profit.
I don't see it in CC app yet and when you go here - https://www.adobe.com/products/photoshop-lightroom.html?promoid=KLXLX -it promotes Lightroom CC on the page, but the download link still takes you to LR 5.
Anyone manage to get it?
Virvatulet: Many seem to support the idea that one could arbitrarily dictate what others can do in public places. Using a public space inherently conveys an accord on limited privacy; the very prospect to be heard, seen and remembered by others.
As long as no physical change is forced on one's personal proximity, there really is nothing what one should do about other's freedom to choose how they use the immediate free space of theirs.
Passively collecting stray photons with a camera can not be objectively seen as excessive behaviour. It's also vital to remember to separate photographing from publishing (legislation variant). What can be legally seen shall be legally photographed (a priori), regardless of the circumstances affecting lawful publishing.
The ladies in the picture exercised their right to choose how they want to be seen and remembered when they use public space. Not willing to give even a split-second moment of their day to the memories of a gentleman randomly crossing their path.
That's deep. I want some of what you're smoking.
WayneHuangPhoto: $3,400? Wow. I'll just get a Samyang when they release their own FF UWA prime.
I'm aware of the 14mm Samyang. What they don't have is a rectilinear 11mm or 12mm prime, but I do see that coming as they already make them for mirrorless formats (a 10mm and 12mm)

WayneHuangPhoto: The ISO specs on these new bodies are a disappointment. Give it a brand new 50 mp sensor, but handicap the ISO range for the sake of market segmentation (i.e. not encroaching on 5D MKIII territory), and sell it as a specialist's camera for portrait and landscape. I'm not a Canon hater. I shoot Canon myself and have invested a lot into their system, but I will not be upgrading for this reason.
Admittedly it is a luxury these days to have 6400+ ISO that can produce images that are still of usable quality, but this is what the current market expects of a dslr at this price range. This is why we have cameras like the 5D mkIII or the Nikon D750/810. While I don't disagree that portrait/landscape is a huge potential market, I still think handicapping the camera so that it, for example, lacks flexibility in capturing night time and milky way landscapes, makes no sense.

Market over-saturation, higher overall quality in dslrs resulting in consumers hanging onto their cameras longer, and declining consumer demand.
WayneHuangPhoto: I'm seriously considering selling all my Canon lenses and my old 5D mkI to finance the purchase of a D750 and one really good super wide angle lens. What do you all think?
@Dougbm_2I got the Rokinon/Samyang 12mm f/2 for my Fuji X-E2 recently and have been thoroughly impressed by the sharpness and overall IQ even wide open. If their Nikon mount (at f2.8) is as good, that along with another less-wide prime is a more cost-effective option that doesn't sacrifice IQ.
Which Nikon official will commit seppuku over this blunder?
@BarnET Thanks for the suggestion, but I've read/seen that the autofocus with metabones adapter slows down AF a lot. A deal-breaker for me.

Wow so many judgmental a-holes here!
