LOL! My mouth hangs open in disbelief!
Najinsky: He missed: Fujian
Fujian - One who promotes mythical juxtapositions of intent and implementation.
It can't AF : It's for expert photographers onlyIt's slow to MF : It's for contemplative photographers onlyIt can't render fine detail : Those details weren't meant to be seenAF fix held back two years to promote new model sales : Great customer serviceDefective aperture blades : Great customer service

Ninja...to be fair, if Fuji had released a decent, current camera to begin with there would be no need for all the partially in effective firmware updates, right?
Base on his portrait, I think Roger my have a part in the next "Lord of the.Rings" movie.
So this is the space where all the people get angry because their camera is not at the top of the list. LOL! If you like your camera...who cares?
Mikael Risedal: Nikon has not optimized the 58/1,4 regarding resolution
Your Nikon money would make a nice down payment on the Zeiss! :-)
"(although we're pretty sure that Leica's latest APO-Summicron-M 50mm f/2 ASPH will give it a run for its money)."
....but the Summicron is only an f/2.0? :-)
"Overall, I preferred working with the 35mm lens. There's some wobble as it focuses, but it's quick, and focus is usually pretty accurate. Oddly, there's more wobble with this lens on the α7 than on the α7R."
That is comforting on a $800 lens. What exactly is "wobble"...I don't have it on any of my Canon, Zeiss, Sigma, Olympus or Panasonic lenses???
Eyeglass10101: Everyone on here comparing this to a standard 50mm lens is missing the point of this lens: It's a Noct lens. It's a speciality lens for shooting at night and low light. It will have no coma and excel for nighttime shooters. It does not need to be consistently sharp from edge to edge for those type of shots (and most shots are center subject focus even if we don't want to believe that).
Everyone is making excuses for this lens!?!?!?It isn't cutting the mustard @$1700. Fact.
Infared: I definitely see why Zeiss made there new High-End 55mm f/1.4 Otus....and it looks like from what I have read..that they have made a beauty. 12 elements in 10 groups. WOW!.... Huge, MF and pay dearly.. but WHAT a lens.
I do not know why Nikon made this lens? (I do need to read other reviews to get a more well-rounded, complete story.. as I am not a fan of dXo..), It is baffling if these results in third party testing are accurate.
Thanks Samhain for the link...interesting read...I am still not convinced @$1700...I feel that Sam was truly impressed with the lens although he was trying to convince himself that he was...I will stick with my Sigma!!!

Funny...LG's entire TV commercial for the G2 is based on showing how it's OIS will freeze action photos....which it can't. To my knowledge OIS only works on stationary objects. The whole commercial is totally innacurate. Looks like LG's marketing Dept. doesn't understand the technology...unless I do not know something special about LG's OIS.
Some say the build quality on the GX7 is great ...some say it is cheap. I have never read so many conflicting remarks about the build of any other camera. I guess that it has to do with people's previous cameras, so it is all relative.
Anfy: It would be interesting to compare GX7 IBIS to that of the newer Olympus cameras, i. e. the 5-axis system; once DPR made this kind of tests. Maybe a future addition to the review?
R/ead this...It's SURPRISING!http://tysonrobichaudphotography.wordpress.com/2013/10/17/the-gx7-vs-the-om-d-e-m5-battle-for-my-affection-round-1-ibis-evfs-lcds/
jimi1127: Happy to report that one of my photos is part of the exhibit - a snap of Parks Department employees replacing a downed tree http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8062/8180263333_b8bed41984_h.jpg_____The image was taken two weeks after the storm. The way the men were placing the tree into place reminded me of Joe Rosenthal's iconic photo of the Marines raising the flag on Iwo Jima.
Jimi....Congrats on your image! Great comparison.I too, was lucky enough to get an image in the show...was at the opening on Monday night....lot of FUN!!!! Great exhibit.
Is this a real estate website? :-)
Genius! The best ideas are always so simple!
NotSteve: Well, this is news flash -- not the camera, but the fact that I didn't realize DPR is now a rumour site. Pretty lame stuff. Is this a change in editorial policy or just the absence thereof?
I know -- how about we replace the news section with a twitter feed from photorumors.
Weird that a lot of your readers have higher expectations of this site than some of the staff.
Your comment would have some weight on this forum....but rumors have it that you are not Steve?
JimWongyyz: This is one ugly lens. Do you guys agree ?
It is $4000-worth of cool-ass German engineering and design.It's beautiful.
