They'll have to prey my cold, dead fingers off my Canon 70-200 f4.

whtchocla7e: Good on Fuji for milking this thing for as long as they can. When you have a fan base that parts with their money at the drop of a hat, you can just sit back and watch the $$$ roll in.

What I mean is that ALL manufacturers bring multiple variants of bodies to the market. The camera makers are in the business of making a PROFIT.

Woodlink: The amount of packaging for this camera is ridiculous and unnecessary.

-no one said Leica was environmentally sensitive I suppose-

If I was paying that kind of money for such an average camera, I'd expect Queen Elizabeth herself to deliver it...white gloves and all. :)

On Nikon D4s First Impressions Review preview (1047 comments in total)
In reply to:

kcallo: I got Breast Cancer 6 years ago (I'm male). I saved and saved for my D3s. I love it. I take photos of family, events, singers, bands, etc. I brought the best glass I could. Life is short. My father died just over a year ago from cancer. About 4 months after he was diagnosed. My mother has Dementia. I care(d) for both of them, and pretty much gave up my career. I have gorgeous photos of my father taken with my D3s. So much detail. Priceless.

Whatever camera you get, big or small, it's not ALL about the specs. It's what you get out of it.

Been awhile for the D4s, If I can get it, I will. My D3s does everything I want it to. I want another body so I don't have to keep swapping lenses.

If you want and can afford a D4s, go get one. If you want a P&S, great. No right or wrong in camera choice. We live in amazing times as photographers.

Get out, shoot. We're all gonna die someday, and I for one, aren't gonna bitch about a few megapixels, or FPS here and there.

LIVE LIFE !! Take a photo.

Well.

Freaking.

Said.

-get out there and create something-

historianx: wwhat no Yabokkie trashing this as well? Did the rising sun finally set?

Yabokkie's probably taking a yabokkie.

Don't worry, the expected pessimism is due anytime now.

D 503: All x Trans noise reduction is severe. If it is now worse than previous I can not recommend this camera.

Then don't recommend it.

Miwok: Why should go with this camera when a NEX-6 give me almost the same for half the price?

the Canon 5D mark 3 is way overpriced as well.

Fuji claiming they have AF tracking/predictive focus?

There better be ZERO lag on that EVF...

Direct link | Posted on Jan 28, 2014 at 14:10 UTC as 344th comment | 2 replies

It's quite funny to read ignorant comments here about how the X-Trans or this potential new design are completely dumb.

That's like saying we never needed different types of film!

Wise up folks.

On Pictures emerge showing widely-leaked Fujfilm 'X-T1' article (373 comments in total)
In reply to:

Frank C.: I wonder how good the AF tracking is? because there is a difference between "AF-tracking" and "trying to AF-track"

I think a good barometer of this unit's ability to track focus would be to compare it to the (still very relevant) Canon 7D.

In fact, perhaps I'll do just that and post some results.

Hmmm...

In reply to:

M DeNero: For days now I have been reading comments looking for common sense rationale explaining the functional benefits of these retro cameras. I haven't found any compelling ones. I have, on the other hand, found hundreds of superficial "it sure is pretty" comments.

If having properly implemented manual control knobs = retro, then that's my rationale.

I don't really care what the unit looks like, just don't give me some massive menu system to navigate.

In reply to:

UnitedNations: For some reason this Fuji looks somewhat like a toy compared to the more serious looking Sony A7. It certainly looks better than the DF, but looks very feminine & a bit too cute to look like a mature machine.

and near 2000 for body only seems a bit expensive when this is not even a Full Frame. Sony A7 seems well priced when considering this...

Fuji lenses > Sony

justmeMN: Another mirrorless camera with DSLR Envy.

Since you can't beat them, try to look like them.

Except that the anticipated EVF on this camera is supposedly really bigger and brighter.
