dvdennin: Why does dpreview parrot the camera companies in reporting the "dots" in a viewfinder? Why not just state the resolution? No end user ever uses the "dots" concept. We think in terms of pixels, and more specifically, resolution as horizontal and vertical. 2.36 million dots. Thats roughly 1000x800... or so I guess. This is one of the more annoying practices on this site.

It does not make sense. Knowing the resolution in terms of full pixels gives more information then simply dots. A 1080p monitor has 1080x1920 pixels x 3 subpixels = 6.22m dots. How is it better to know dots then resolution? Nowhere but in the domain of consumer electronic camera lcd viewfinders is "dots" used. You are exactly wrong in your reasoning. Knowing the horizontal and verticle resolution is the ONLY way to know the aspect ratio, another aspect of which "dots" obscures.

On Just posted: Our Fujifilm XF 14mm 1:2.8 R lens review article (78 comments in total)

I bought this lens and lo and behold it also had the loose aperture ring! Very disappointing. But I sent it into Fuji's repair center in Edison, NJ and they adjusted the ring tension. It's still not as tight as the 18mm lens, but now it's much better. This lens is amazingly sharp and straight. I cannot believe vignetting at low apertures is considered a defect in this day and age. It's the simplest thing to remove if that's not your thing. Me, I love it and mostly shoot wide open with my pictures.
