Peiasdf: That’s a lot of fast primes. Good if the camera is smaller.

compared to zoom lenses, fast primes makes sense for a mirrorless camera system.

EmmanuelStarchild: Looks like a Leica knockoff.

except for the X series of compacts, other Leica compacts are rebadged Panasonic Lumix cameras.

Petka: a) Camera is brand new, and now already Canon has to fix problems. How can they let unfinished products get to the market? Canon is on the decline, seriously!

b) Great service, Canon! even the small details are immediately fixed and new products accommodated in firmware, pronto! I hope other companies were as good! Future looks great!

(just trying to cover all angles and save much unnecessary postings...)

Nikon D800 has far serious issues of its own. It cant still reliably trigger speed light wirelessly. chk this link for more details: http://nikonrumors.com/2012/06/18/rumor-second-nikon-d800-firmware-update-coming-out-soon.aspx/

another reason why to choose m 4/3 mirrorless camera over other mirrorless systems. ( Also Canon soon might join this camp)

Chaitanya S: f/5.6 @ 300mm is impressive. I am not a big fan of super-zooms but I am sure many people will prefer to buy this lens over primes.

I shifted to Nikon after D7000 release. I have a couple of fast(f/2.8 or faster) lenses with the kit. Soon I am planning to get D800(or if the rumours of D600 are true then D600).

berni29: Hi

On my E-M5 I have had the banding once with the 20mm at iso 6400. I have not seen it at iso 3200 and I do shoot a fair bit at that sensitivity.

These are complex electronic devices, not the simple mechanical ones of old. The occasional glitch is hardly surprising.

Berni

well said.

nice shot

evolution of rebel/xxxd/kiss line of cameras. Atleast Canon is improving when it comes to camera line-up by listening to customers.

tooo many pixels on a small sensor.

In reply to:

Peiasdf: Just checked out Pentax's lens line up and I cannot find a single fast normal prime. The cheapest "50mm" is 35mm f/2.4 at $180 while the fastest is 31mm f/1.8 at $1,000. Where is the cheap f/1.4~f/1.8?

Good cameras, weird ass lens line up.

why dont you check keh.com they have a good collection of used pentax lenses. Pentax made some of the best small sized fast prime lenses. I own 5 prime lenses for Pentax K-Mount including f1.2 lens.

Certainly a good addition to the micro 4/3 line-up of lenses. Now waiting for Olympus's 60mm macro and 75mm lens as well.

On Novoflex creates adapters for Fujifilm X-Pro1 article (36 comments in total)
In reply to:

MPA1: I was not pleased to read this on their site:

"Special note for Nikon lens adapters:
With few Nikkor lenses of the G-series the weather sealing of the lens has to be removed."

Ain't gonna happen!

actually you will have to remove the rubber gasket as it comes in the way of setting apertures when using the adapter. Also Novoflex adapters aint some 3rd party rip-off accessory they are genuine quality products.

In reply to:

thx1138: Why oh why do manufacturers refuse to make an underwater camera that shoots RAW or uses even a 1/1.7" sensor. Whoever does so will make a killing. Olympus should make and underwater version of the XZ-1 and keep the fast glass please.

a larger sensor and fast glass is a must for underwater camera. Also manual control for camera functions is a must. Lets see which manufacturer brings out such a camera.

In reply to:

Photomonkey: I am shocked, SHOCKED, that they would release a camera that is not perfect. What were they thinking?
<sarcasm/>

almost all the cameras releases in last couple of years have some sort of unresolved issues at release. none of the new cameras released are perfect.
