RolliPoli: With lenses there are three principal characteristics:
Sharp
Fast
Cheap
You can only have two of those three.
Which two would you prefer?

I know.

I'm eyeing that Samyang 135mm F2.0 ED UMC.

The Rokinon (Samyang ) 24mm f/1.4 is intriguing also.

Pat Cullinan Jr: Made by slave labor. Xixiang Town, ShenZhen, Guangdong, China.

Before the Civil War in this country, many people in the North would not purchase the products of slave labor. Maybe it's not as simple as that.

>>I suppose Pat would just prefer if they were unemployed.

Not at all. I was thinking about employment when I said, "Maybe it's not as simple as that." It's a moral dilemma, don't you think?

But let's get back to out lenses and cameras....

DuxX: No AF = no interest

>>No AF = no interest

You're entitled to your preference.

I focused manually for over 40 years. It's not that big of a hindrance. But I welcomed AF and AE for the agility.

ggc: Why there isn't a simple picture of a landscape focused at infinity maybe at two different apertures?

That wouldn't be arty.

Edgar_in_Indy: The images look okay to me. Sharpness is not great, but not bad either.

But it kind of seems to defeat the purpose of a fixed lens camera, and begs the question of why not just go for an ILC with a couple high-quality, compact primes?

Don't make waves. :)

fuxicek: I have Canon 1000d and although it's a good camera, there is one thing that annoys me all the time - the viewfinder... I wish it was at least like my film Camera Canon 3000v from 2001, but all Rebel series has it somehow small and tunnel like view and it will be the main reason, Ill probably move to mirrorless with nice big EVF, like Panasonic G6/G7/GX 80, unless the succesor of Canon 100d/sl 1 will do something about it...

The Canon MG-Ef Magnifying Eyepiece is compatible with the Canon EOS Rebel T6i, T6s, T5i, T5, T4i, T3i, T3, T2i, T1i, SL1, XSi, XS, XTi, XT, T2, Ti, and K2 cameras.

Runs about $30.

5 stars!

I'm getting one of those.

This gets one down.

Will manual focus serve as a stopgap?

Jonathan F/2: Lack of an EVF is a major con against the A5100. Any camera with no EVF/OVF should be bumped from contention.

I sure will.

falconeyes: Is this the level of innovation Adobe thinks is acceptable to CC users?

It saves to click 4 corners with the mask tool and then use content-aware fill which was inroduced with CS5, I believe. Actually, it just makes a script a built-in feature.

Where is the real innovation? A new tool like content-aware fill as such?

>Perspective Warp is insane

Do you mean demented or outstandingly admirable? I not always understanding Englisha pisin.

More phony baloney from Adobe. But at least we won't be seeing it for another four or five versions.

Pat Cullinan Jr: Is the X100T orb-free?

Is acquiring an orb-free example a crapshoot?

>Only the X10 had orb issues, its big brother the X100 did not.

I'm glad to learn this. Thank you very much.

We can always add our own orbs with Photoshop. ;-)
