any oils drops on sensor ? those new mirrors..
Marty4650: Does anyone else notice how young these Japanese camera company executives are?
This is really good news for the industry. A very positive sign that they are not stuck in the past, but willing to fully embrace the future.
We old people might know a lot of stuff, but we are too comfortable with the status quo, and too reluctant to change things. So I see this as as boding well for the future of the industry.
> Does anyone else notice how young these Japanese camera company executives are?
he is a (co)owner, not hired executive... that's different.
fastest AF ?
"Amongst interchangeable-lens digital cameras equipped with an APS-C image sensor as of February 12, 2014. Determined with internal measurement method with E PZ 16-50mm F3.5-5.6 OSS lens mounted, Pre-AF off and viewfinder in use."
as usual the real kings of mirrorless AF = Nikon 1 and m43 are excluded for marketing purposes :-)
Rob Sims: Very impressive first preview. Would be interesting to see how fast the AF turns out to be. Up until now, fast-AF in mirrorless has been reserve of m43 (and also Nikon 1-inch sensor system)... so this could be the first assault from APS-C.
I like the Sony I'm currently using, but have been envious of some of the lenses Fuji have released, just not enthused about the camera bodies. That could change with this announcement.
> Up until now, fast-AF in mirrorless has been reserve of m43 (and also Nikon 1-inch sensor system)... so this could be the first assault from APS-C.
did you see the note from Fuji itself about their claim ?
"*1: Fastest AF speed among digital cameras equipped with an APS-C or larger sensor."
so N1 and m43 reign the AF field
better later than never
VeryKross: So, CS6 costs a little over $600 ($699 retail but who pays that) for the Standard edition (you can't get Extended outside of a packaged "suite"). Upgrades from one version to another run $200 and come out about every two years. So, my two-year cost of staying current with CS would be $600+$200=$800.
A Photoshop CC (Cloud) subscription runs you $20/month or $240/yr. Two years of that comes to $480. That's $120 *less* than my original CS purchase and $320 less the two-year purchase scenario above. Ok, let's go out to year 4; my CS outlay (assuming I stay current) is now $1,000 and my CC is at $960.
So, after 4yrs my outlay is pretty close to the same amount AND I've been getting more frequent updates via CC in addition to features otherwise only available to PS Extended users. Yes, by year 6 I am starting to spend more on CC *but* I've also had 6yrs of access to other cloud-only features, enhancements, etc. and there's definitely some value to be had there.
Is that really so bad?
who told you that subscription cost will stay the same ? naive assumption... and if you stop subscription you have nothing left
violence ? it is a staged peddling of photos...
Sgt_Strider: So can one safely say that the C1 software is the best for X-Trans sensors at the moment?
Have Adobe even acknowledged that their converter needs improvements? I wonder if they'll put in the effort to produce better results for X-Trans sensors going forward?
> Silkypix is horrid software, that's particularly bad with XTrans filter raws.
it just reflects your incapability to work with SilkyPix... neither ACR/LR, nor C1, nor RPP, nor whatever so far can deliver better resolution vs artefacts free output than Fuji/ISL... like it or not.
may be Ricoh/Pentax gave them Pentax Q mount license ?

zoomf: What is shocking is that so many naysayers here do not recognize the stunning Italian design features presented. This was created by professionals for the 1% who understand this " is a celebration of the passion". Perhaps if you owned a fine automobile or any quality good for that matter you would see this Lunar dangling proudly around your neck.
yes... around you p... as in p... extender
exdeejjjaaaa: what a difficult job for carlson to stand and have nothing really to say... legacy Kmount... ahahaha... clowns
it's a pentax user with an imprint of the legacy Kmount on his forehead upon reading mr carlson...
> We have the 645D, and Pentax is dedicated to that system, but whether there's room between the K-5 cameras and the 645, I can't say.
you gotta like this... he does not know (or can't say) if there is a room between sub $1.5K body and $8-10K range body... he looks like Bill O'Reilly talking about WMD.
onlooker: Not one question about FF plans?
dpreview is not that cruel...
what a difficult job for carlson to stand and have nothing really to say... legacy Kmount... ahahaha... clowns
Jeff Morris: Tokina is the only 3rd party manufacturer that I have real respect for. The only negative about Tokina lenses are their propensity to demonstrate higher than normal levels of CA. However, build and performance are usually on par with the big boys.
so such 3rd parties as Zeiss or Cosina for example are no good ?
that dude somehow forgot to mention that he is deducting his business expenses taxwise... so he is either stupid (not to deduct) or liar (in his calculations)
