  • Why do you think it's no good for landscapes? Most landscape photos taken in the past 100 years were made between 24-75mm 35mm-e.

  • The best reason to buy a mirror less is to get a smaller and lighter camera. So doesn't it make sense to provide smaller and lighter lenses for it? That hardly seems worth arguing about. And bring...

  • Hope so. I haven't seen any evidence if harm from my filterless X-Pro1, or the Pentax K5IIs I used for awhile. From that small sample, compared to my Sony a850 with AA on a FF sensor, deleting the ...
  • I've already done a search here and elsewhere, with no specifics. Since my last question about this new little beauty ("Does the LX100 have a leaf shutter?") drew a fast, positive response and ...
  • That's great news! Don't you wonder why so many other first-day reviews didn't mention that?
  • That's one spec I'm not finding anywhere, and it's a significant one. There's a huge difference between using a camera that allows flash above 1/200th of a second and one that doesn't. I've ...
  • Commented on Sigma announces dp1 Quattro article

    This unsightly absurdity should have been announced last April 1st. It illustrates the desperation of today's second-string camera makers, though. First, they took away the reflex viewfinder,...

  • Thank goodness that this camera finally has stabilization to correct for "yam and pitch." My attempts to get sharp photos of sweet potatoes tossed into the air have been such failures so far...

  • It's a leaf shutter, with full-power flash sync up to 1/1000, and faster with some f-stop settings. That's a huge assist to daylight fill flash usage! DPR used to list flash sync with its specs...

  • No, but I can add an accessory to the LX7 for just $150 and gain tilting capability besides. for less than the x30. But EVFs stink in bright outdoor situations, if they're really bright. I shoot in...

  • Just glancing at the front photo of the x30, I get the irrational impression that Fujifilm believed a large logo was a more important use of space than the OVF window.

    Now I'm doubting their...

  • Phooey! The X30 discards the one unique feature of its predecessors, the OVF, and joins the me-too list of lookalike compacts. So why would I want to use this rather than my LX7, which has 24mm and...

  • Really? I was told the opposite by a Fuji rep in Denver, around a month ago. I was specifically asking if they were going to continue with an OVF option, and he said they would. I hope my rumor ...
  • Like I said, I don't own any Sony lenses. But I might want to try my best Minoltas, like the 70-210/4 Beercan or the 100/2.8 macro. My little 35-70/4 is no slouch, either. But without accurate ...
  • Meaning the DSLR lenses from Sony and Minolta, of course. I have plenty of them, with seven Minolta Maxxums and one stray Sigma. The available adapters for Fuji X cameras run over $200 with the ...
  • To the OP-- that's what i was thinking last night, but for different reasons. I'd just used my new X-Pro1 for a paid shoot for the first time. Still new to the camera, I used auto WB and .jpg and ...
  • Or imagine making a mistake with the stubby little pencils and the note cards when you wrote down the call number. Way, way up at the top stack, you can't find the book, and it's five flights of...

  • Why does everybody forget the Touits? Because of the funny name? Just search for "Zeiss 12mm X-Mount" and you'll find oodles of Touits on sale following the recent half-price sale. Expect to spend ...
  • Sounds like a perfect match. Both C and M are big, coasting on market dominance from past achievements. Both are complacent, slow to respond to new products and developments (mirrorless, tablets,...

  • Another thumbs up for Englewood Camera. They're really the only X-choice in Denver, so it's a good thing that it's a top-notch store. They have a nice selection of used gear, too. Make sure you ...
