  • The DOF in this shot looks like what I would expect from the XF 90 in the first place. I'm sure I've seen some XF 90 images with similar framing that have even MORE shallow DOF. From what I know ...
  • I don't want to get into this whole converter discussion again. Those "other programs" are simply doing more default sharpening on intake, and the images don't necessarily look better for ...
  • +1 I think a lot of folks don't think an image is "sharp" unless it's OVER-sharpened. The in-focus details on the tram are perfectly sharp and detailed. Any "mud" in the trees is from DOF blurring. ...
  • Not sure why no one else has commented, but I like these images a lot. You have a nice style, your compositions are great and the B/W conversions are excellent. 1st shot of the child, lady ...
  • Submitted a challenge entry Minox "Riga"
    The famous Minox "Riga" spy camera. This one was manufactured in Riga, Latvia in 1940, and has a wonderful patina from many years of use.

  • Replied in RX1R used?
    +1 RX1R with the EVF for under $2k US is a good deal IF it's clean and low mileage with the box and accessories. I don't think there will be any firmware updates. An RX2 is probably months, if not ...
  • I think you got a bad copy. I have the Rokinon branded 12/2 and it is very sharp - even at f/2. I did extensive testing between the Fuji XF 14 and Rokinon 12. The 12 was just as sharp, and ...
  • Submitted a challenge entry CHOPIN
    Taken in Brooklyn Bridge Park, NY. The piano was sitting outside on the promenade, and this gentleman sat down and began playing it.

  • I am also a devoted Fuji X fan and have no desire to switch. Like you, I have considered purchasing the RX1 as a Full Frame "compliment" to my Fuji kit a number of times, but I was always put off ...
  • I love my X-E2 and primes. The best kit I have ever owned and used. After recently picking up an RX1R, I also wandered into the "maybe an A7ii is the ticket" conundrum. After much thought and ...
  • +1 to Tirpitz666 comments. I have an X-E2 + XF primes, which I love. I have also owned and loved an original X100 and X100S. The X100T is one generation better, and is more camera than most of us ...
  • Replied in Sony RX1
    Ha ha! +1 here. I planned to get a RX1, but found an unbelievable deal on an R, and I couldn't be happier. I think the "je ne sais quoi" is due to the amazing detail and micro-detail, combined with ...
  • Replied in RX1/R focusing
    Get the EVF, which "flips up". Even though I don't love the look of the EVF sitting on top of the sleek RX1 body, it is truly a joy to use. Changes the whole game. You can get them used, in like ...
  • It looks as if the camera focused on the man clapping in the audience (from what I can tell by the small original image). Did you have single point AF on, or Multi point?
  • The only point that's really worth taking issue with is the Bokeh comment. First of all, the 56/1.2, 35/1.4 and 23/1.4 all have VERY nice Bokeh. Secondly, it's pretty well-known that it ...
  • A little cluster of sprouting garlic sitting on a rusty piece of metal sculpture in front of a south-facing window. RX1R @f/2. Lightly processed in LR CC and cropped square. The combination of ...
  • Replied in Cure GAS now!
    All good, thoughtful insights. My only comment is that I SOLD my Sony RX100 M3 to help fund the RX1R. While the IQ of the RX100 is great, and the EVF makes it the leader of the pants-pocketable ...
  • Replied in Used RX1R
    I had a Canon 5D II with a bevy of L lenses for a few years, so I know what FF goodness is! I ditched all that heavy stuff when M43rds arrived, but eventually answered the Fuji X100 "Siren Song" a ...
