On Canon announces 16-35mm F4L and 10-18mm F4.5-5.6 lenses article (367 comments in total)
In reply to:

Smokymtnhiker: The 16-35mm F4L should be awesome on the A7R. It would be the perfect do-all lens for backpacking trips. I hope Novoflex hurries up with their AF adapter. If so I will forget about getting the Sony 35mm 2.8.

why not simply use 6D to save you all the hassles about adapter misalignment, slow AF and no IS

I was a pentax user until the AF and pentax service of K-5 turned me away. Looking at K-5 II now, I cannot help but feeling it is such a handsome camera, hopefully Pentax can do better this time.

The subscription model holds customers hostage, that's why I don't like it.

On Photoshop CC: Adobe responds to reaction article (1853 comments in total)

I just don't understand why adobe products can be so expensive, take adobe acrobat for example, foxit, which not only can do most of the job, but also is faster n smaller, is so much cheaper

Reading from the statements, it's not about controlling pirating, they want a continuous stream of *larger* income...

I bought Photoshop CS4 and CS5, and found there were not enough changes to warrant regular upgrades. I don't need all the latest and greatest, this monthly subscription is too expensive

28mm looks pretty sweet for me, reminds me of the Minolta TC-1 and Nikon 28Ti

The price is too steep though

On Nikon posts sample images and video from Coolpix A article (50 comments in total)

I love the samples from Nikon, I mean, clicking through the sample gallery, the 3 black n white images and Sample 5 are among the best sample shots I have seen; they are very artistically captured.

On Fujifilm X-E1 Preview preview (410 comments in total)
In reply to:

Petka: I found an annoying bug in the X-E1: RAW files open slightly cropped from the long sides in Lightroom 4.2. Pressing RESET in LR 4.2 reveals the whole frame, or using the crop tool and unlocking the file and choosing "original". This is strange as there is no possibility of adjusting the aspect ratio when shooting RAW only. EXIF data says: Dimensions - 3264 x 4896, Cropped - 2760 x 4896.

If the camera is set to shoot both RAW and JPEG, the RAW file behaves normally.

Fuji, please take note...

I'm having the same problem...no I didn't set crop ratio to 16:9...

Stephen_C: Before the RX100 this would have been a great camera.

For compacts, lens is at least as important as sensor, I wouldn't simply dismiss lx7 based on sensor size alone, even compared with rx100

Direct link | Posted on Oct 16, 2012 at 13:12 UTC

I think it's the most balanced camera, I mean, if you look at sensor size + lens aperture.

On Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 75mm F1.8 Preview preview (213 comments in total)
In reply to:

Albert Ang: It's really a weird focal length. I actually expected fast 17mm f1.8 or f2 (35mm FOV equivalent in 35mm camera).
Also, hopefully m43 manufacturers don't forget that flash system is as important as body and lenses. "Pro-like" body and lenses, should be supported with sophisticated flash system. I would love to see Oly and Pana can compete with CaNikon with respect to lighting.

It's not really wired, something like Canon 135L but a little bit more tight

ZoranC: Now that Fuji has shown to us how "seriously" they took $600 X10 development, X10 testing, and X10 customers, as if issues with $1100 X100 were not enough of an indicator, anybody still willing to spend $2300+ on Fuji X-Pro1?

If they say "fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me" what they would say for "fool me three times"?

X100 has its own issues, my copy had a tilted viewfinder and it took fujifilm months to rectify it (well I cut the long story short, they messed up with my cam and can only give me a new one after months), well then there is sticky aperture, not to mention the DOF scale which is still mis calculated

Gx1 is faster than my 5d

It's almost like a M43 with a somewhat slow and fixed zoom lens

patoth66: Remember the old half-frame cameras from olympus and canon, and Pentax Auto 110, they where so fun working with for street photography. You got more images on one roll of film, and not that much loss of image quality! I think many of you are to negative and whining to much! Be glad Pentax is doing something fun, and no- nonsense product to just have fun with!! That is what photography is all about, having fun and being creative!!))

then use a M43 if u are into that
