cseiler: Great! - This adapter can use auto exposure without any information from the lens. Shouldn't it be easy than to "reverse engineer" this to allow non-Nikon lenses to meter? Or will I have to buy one of these and cut it off and bolt a Pentax mount on?
.... or is there finally a firmware update to get rid of this stupid "no lens mounted" message if you are in A mode with a 3rd party adapter?
It can with Nikon lenses and the Nikon FT-1 adapter, that works quite well. With adapters for other lenses it can only be used in M mode- not even auto-iso works. If you put it in A mode it meters but you can not take a picture since there is an error message on the screen.

cseiler: $399 ????!!! Whouahahahahahahahhhhhhaaaaahahah...
What do they do? Cut the mount out of Rebel bodies?
I really don't get why someone would get it for this price. You can buy a Rebel T3 for $380, and you will be able to hold the lens with the camera.

keeponkeepingon: I was so excited by the first part of the title "Envisioning Family" that I missed the second part and was a bit disappointed when I read the review.
For me (just a parent with a couple of cameras) "envisioning family" includes but is mostly the opposite of staged portrait photography. It's more like run and gun photojournalism, with a healthy mix of spray and pray with a sincere often failed effort to keep out of the way.
I thought the same thing- I want to see the kids in action, with a natural expression not a staged one. Even more when I look at old pictures of myself the important ones are where I recognize toys places and games we did.
"Fujifilm's EXR technology was first introduced back in 2009 in the F200 EXR. The X10 uses a considerably larger sensor than the F200 did"
I think the sensor sizes are nearly the same 2/3 inch vs 1/1.6 for the F200.
h2k: (1of2) This is an interesting article and it seems to be a new format on DPR: a personal experience report, not the usual technical examination down to the last screw. Thanks for the report and for the sample pictures!
Still i'd like to remark that this report, intended to be about the new Olympus 45 mm lens, could be somewhat shortened: - cut out the remarks about the lenes "look" on a specific Olympus camera- cut out the remarks about how to tune that specific camera's JPEG engine- cut out the remarks about the writer's previous cameras
I was especially disappointed about the writer's retrospective of previous shooting habits ("All my film shooting was done with slow-ish kit zooms...").
I thought the same thing- what is all this info I don't need doing in there?
- and please dpreview- stop claiming that YOU asked for it and the manufacturers replied- are you really this arrogant?
- the other thing which is really missing is good examples. That portrait is horrible- and a landscape shot with a 90mm to show its qualities? Please get some more capable photographers!
