  • Hmm... actually the move was to smaller and smaller formats, APS is a film designation (it was a failed attempt at a smaller format and modern film packaging - the quality was so-so and the price ...
  • Nice try. But Pentax with the K-1 is the only manufacturer confident enough to demonstrate its Flexible Tilt LCD's sturdiness.

    As a "Pentaxian" (what a joke... your allegiance is clear from your...

  • I have to disagree. We could discuss about "needs" and "wants" and about what's "enough" and "worth the effort". People's opinion on that differs, so I'll touch a different point. The flexible tilt ...
  • Silly me... I wrote about DS 6 because that's what I have. But, obviously, DS 7 was also updated (v7.1.4.0), and so was DS Pro 7 (v 7.0.4.0).

  • Thank you, and Happy Easter! Alex
  • Silkypix, too - version 6.1.27:

    Unfortunately, it's not yet available from the European site... and if you have the EU version, you can't upgrade using...

  • Weren't those posted on some Japanese blogs/Twitter/whatever? Alex
  • I told you already, it's expected at the beginning of May. I'll inquire further tomorrow (if not too busy/lazy). On the internet, people started posting unboxing images. http://forum.xitek.com/thre ...
  • If Amazon ships later than others... That's incorrect. Both the D5 and the D500 were announced more than a month before the K-1 (are you confusing a product announcement with "hey, you know, we'll ...
  • But forcing an "universal" mount means no further lenses nor cameras for the current mounts. In other words, people will be forced to buy into the new system, at their expense. Is this about ...
  • You are changing the subject, from "universal mount" to mirrorless propaganda. Regardless, here is the answer: those Nikon F-mount users could have jumped ship already, to one of the mirrorless ...
  • Are you talking about a proprietary mount or a "standard" mount? This distinction is the entire point of the discussion. Wrong generalization; quite a few Nikon cameras can autofocus with all AF ...
  • I see you are avoiding my question; actually removing it altogether. Instead, you're continuing with blanket statements. OK, Nikon doesn't have a large sensor mirrorless mount. But Canon, Sony, ...
  • Really? What makes you so sure? So far, all manufacturers who launched mirrorless systems did so using proprietary mounts (including m4/3). What makes you think that: - the others will use a ...
  • That's not "all lenses did fit all cameras (almost)" - which was your original claim. And there are two significant flaws with your reasoning: - mirrorless lenses would be left out (as in: ...
  • Negative? On the contrary, I'm very much positive. Positive it can't possibly work ;-) Ignoring problems won't make them disappear. Creating problems is worse. That's impossible. ...
  • Perhaps you're talking about having a MILC and a DSLR version, and a simple adapter to allow using new-mount-DSLR lenses on the new-mount-MILC cameras? In effect, you'd be banning compact IL ...
  • I wouldn't be so sure about that. Then, you would have two mounts (since the registration distance is part of the mount specification). Two mounts for each format where you'd want a DSLR version. T ...
  • It would work about as well as universal gloves (size, thickness/cold protection, appearance...) ;-) There's a huge problem with an universal lens mount: which one would be it? You could say, "OK, ...
  • Replied in 4/3s & m43s
    Interesting. What "standard mount for a car tyre" are you talking about? Tires comes in a staggering amount of sizes; and wheels aren't standardized either. In effect, we have to look for tires ...
