klavrack: It should sell well to folks that want DSLR capabilities w/o the weight. On the other hand, we Pentaxians would like to point out the K-30 as a great alternative. From our biased perspective, it's a much more capable camera w/o many relative weaknesses. Good for Canon, though, if it puts pressure on everyone else--competition benefits buyers of all brands.
Klavrack,Sure Pentax is super good 'camera'. But lens? If pentax has fast focussing, not expensive lenses, esp tele-zoom I will buy them
Can some experienced photog advise me please?
Compared to T5i, what are the DISadvantages this one has?
If attached with Sigma100-300 F4 or Canon 100-400 L , will the light weight cause harder handling than heavier T5i due to imbalance?
thanksJay ( out of focus)
DenisBBergeron: At my eyes, the 7.3 give less moiré and more sharp rendering and on my screen I don't see any difference on colors in theses jpeg.
see the 'Washington' board. 7.3 looks light green letters while 7.4 looks white .
1/60th of second cannot produce this kind fire work movement
Main aim of purchasing a super zoom is "super zoom" . i.e tele end. But why do you never compare how a tele-distant photos from fz200 etc with the camera being tested?
In short distance, anyway the mediocre since too many lens involved in super zoom.
AngryCorgi: "The Speed Booster also promises sharper images compared to using the lens with a simple adapter."
That claim makes zero sense. If you are going to spread out ALL of the glass of a FF lens, the center may get sharper, but now you are using the edge glass too, and that is generally a weak point in FF lenses. You've effectively removed the "sweet spot" effect of cropped sensors w/ FF lenses.
Not necessarily. Widening does not decrease center's sharpness, it just adds center sharpness + with edge softness. i.e. it is increase in detail.
Ajit Negandhi,The photo is mean spirited and with fraudulent claim, and the description "yoga" is irrelevant here. This has nothing to do with yoga.
jaykumarr: I am not very confident that Fuji's efforts in research and development and inventions are very fruitful in their end product due to poor quality control. White Orb Issues, Too much CAs, jpeg artifacts, soft except for "cluster line patterns" in photos are sporadically present in Fuji cameras. But, though inferior in spec. sheet Panasonic, Canon cameras deliver better output.
I hope/drool fuji delivers good output overall and nail the coffin of other bridge cameras. But I insist fuji to concentrate more in output quality than the fantasies of out of world inventions.
great shot.. using great lens

Why is this not a FZ-xx camera, but LZ camera?
excellent shot with amazing bokeh, i did not know this inexpensive lens is sharp!!
tron555: In the studio scene comparison shots the FZ150 look MUCH sharper and clearer to my eye in both JPEG and RAW to my eye. Is anyone else seeing what I am seeing?
me too. But Some people in pany forum were bragging their FZ200 was sharper than FZ150, while I did not see any improvement in FZ200. This photos prove the same.
the photo is superb... but pointlessly huge upload... looks bad in full-size
did the snake eat the frog? or could not?
thank you for everyone voted.. i am thrilled to win this tough competition, where first two dozen entries were commendable.. I appreciate all photogs that competed in this.
absolutely wonderful photo... great..
excellent creative work
amazing lighting.. should be number 1
Excellent David Hunt. This is admirable work and will be very useful when the manufacturers restrict consumers by limiting capabilities of the camera. GREAT.
