klbw: I love the comments focusing on technical qualities of Donald's photos instead of the real meaning and author's intentions :)

This is undisputedly a valuable work and an interesting addition to all the photos taken in the Ukraine over past few months, really good documentary stuff. This is not a revolution in photography, but I love the idea and it speaks to me.

I like DPR for technical stuff, but I'm not sure about the purpose of sharing this kind of work here - maybe it's better to stick with safer/easier images? Obviously DPR community seriously lacks education in subject of contemporary documentary photography. I appreciate DPR's recent educational efforts, but it's a bit like featuring this in Advanced Photoshop Magazine - missed audience.

OK, then educate me please :) What is you point? I was referring to some of the comments, in hope of a discussion (not the whole DPR community of course). Obviously some commenters didn't read or understand the photographer's idea. These comments make to me as much sense as looking for documentary or artistic qualities in noise reduction sample photos from a camera review...

To some, I'd suggest a lecture of GUPMagazine, Aperture, archival Foto8 or some magazines from that list: http://www.oitzarisme.ro/2014/01/30/twenty-two-online-magazines-for-your-consideration/ - who knows, you might find something you missed earlier, like a whole new world :)

At last!! Definitely will buy 40/f2 to replace my 35/f2 for street photography!

And yes, it could be faster but today's high ISO this isn't a big problem and we still have 50/f1.4 or f1.2 to do all the super low light work.

Good stuff, thanks Fuji. You've ticked few boxes on the TO FIX list for x100, but there's still a lot to improve, so keep up the good work :)

On Canon EOS 5D Mark III hands-on preview and video article (273 comments in total)

At last, a proper AF in 5d series! :) That alone looks like a good reason to upgrade from my 5d. I gave up mark II after 3 months of using it and went back to the old camera, as I didn't find any real reason to upgrade for the price difference at that time - not in terms of image quality (up to 1600ISO) or in terms of functionality (not using video). Can't wait for tests of mark III, I'll probably will get one before summer.

Bring it on Fuji, we're waiting for this long time! I'm always happy to see a new mirrorless camera with a proper viewfinder, not many of them on the market!

jenbenn: Well I pray that this camera can be used for what it was build for (unlike the x100). Reportage and snapshots. Please, please Fuji, dont mess up the processing. The camera needs to react FAST. Recycle times between shots MUST be less than 0.5s for this cam to be usable. Everything else is just perfect Manual zoom, bright lens, sensor large enough to use iso 400-800.

I second that! plus an optical viewfinder... Will definitely have a closer look in Nov!

On Fujifilm announces X10 high-end enthusiast compact article (279 comments in total)

So nice to finally see a company going in this direction - creating advanced compact cameras with viewfinder and bigger sensor (APS-C would be nice though)... Thanks for listening Fuij, you won't regret it :)

Photato: So close to perfect.
Things they missed here:
- Multi Aspect Sensor From 4:3 to 16;9
- Deep & Fast Raw Buffer
- Hinged Screen.

I agree with T3 - I wouldn't expect any of those features here. Actually the viewfinder, RAW format and bigger sensor are ALL I need from a compact camera. And a reasonable price too (max 500usd).
