fatdeeman: Coming soon: Helios 44-2 for only $749
Or C-Mount lenses for the new 600$ Kodak Super8 camera.
I have an original from 1977. It's a nice little lens, not that sharp though. I have used it on my Fuji X series. However, I think it would be a better match for full frame cameras. While you can get used ones for cheap, you still have to pay 150-200$ for a good one. Plus another 20-80$ for the M39 adapter.For Crop sensor cameras I'd rather spend a bit more and get a modern autofocus lens that was made for the smaller sensors, such as the 56mm 1.2.
We'll have to wait another year to find out:https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=456583604400854&set=a.108293225896562.11313.102447209814497&type=1
Optimal Prime: Given that the X10's auto ISO always seems to choose a higher ISO than necessary, I have a nagging suspicion Fuji knew of the problem even prior to release.
For instance, when the Auto ISO is set to 800, despite being outdoors on a sunny day, the lowest ISO setting the camera seem settles on is still ISO 400...
This issue has also been noted several times in many forums, along with the inaccuracy of the AF and the mediocrity of the X10's Image Stabilization.
Fuji definitely needs to invest more in Quality Control or else their whole 'Made in Japan' marketing slogan will become a handicap rather than a selling point.
Obviously, Fuji's tolerance settings are very different than the paying consumer's acceptable tolerance. Something to keep in mind when working out the firmware fix (if possible at all).
Higher ISO allows for better highlight protection and does make sense in high-contrast situations outdoors.Usually DR is set to 400% at ISO 400.
