Hi

I really like that image. Who cares about a bit of purple fringing?

Cameron R Hood: What a shame; they make GREAT stuff. Been a big fan since the film days.

Hi I bought one of their small LED panel lights just the other day.

This looks like a very interesting offering indeed. Its a bit big for my liking personally, but holds the promise of being a great photographic tool.

However you look at it there are some very nice images there. And I enjoyed looking at them.

Yes, liked those very much. Perhaps I should get a bit more creative myself!

Hi

I thought some of those images were lovely, and he made a lot of sense to me.

Well done him!

piratejabez: I like everything I've seen about this camera. Love the optional grip and strap. Can't wait to see first-hand performance reports. Way to go, Fuji!

Hi

I am an m4/3 guy, but I do like the look of this Fuji and I think they may well have hit the sweet spot with this. I agree that APS-C sensor is good enough for the vast majority, as are the latest m4/3. FF is the dead end really. Who really needs it? You can get thin enough DOF on both APS-C and m4/3 with the right lenses.

And yes I do like the A7. Looks like a nice camera and will suit some for sure.

In reply to:

Identity: I'm sure this is a lovely lens, but I was expecting shallower DOF in an F/1.2 lens. For me, APS-C is still the best balance of size, image quality, cost, and DOF control.

Hi, you could not pay me to lug a D800 and equivlent glass around when I could use a much smaller m43 and this lens and get results that are good enough for me.

If I felt I needed this lens and could afford to buy it then why not? Photography is a hobby for me, and over the number of years I would likely use the lens it is not unreasonably expensive.

I could drive a Toyota, but I like my Porsche.

Hi

This is great news. A massive timesaver for me.

On Nikon Df preview (2817 comments in total)

Hi Guys

I think the black version looks quite nice. I was never much taken with the "modern" Nikon designs. Whatever you say it is always preferable to use a tool you like. I like my EM-5 and can overlook the ergonomic issues.

In reply to:

larrytusaz: Why do most articles have you click each picture to read each item on the list? Why not make it one long page so you can click it once & just read, not "next, next, next, next, next, next, nex....."

I agree, ditch this one. All on 1 or 2 pages for this.

On Editorial: Why I can't stop taking iPhone Panoramas article (300 comments in total)

Hi

I never really thought about this type of photography (panoramas) before reading this article. They always seemed like too much effort. I also did not want an Iphone 5S, but now I am seriously interested!

I am not interested in mobile phones so would not have seen this article on the connect site. But I am interested in photography so am pleased to find it here.

Thank you for posting it.

On Nikon 1 AW1 preview (588 comments in total)

Hi

This is a very interesting camera, and 20m is enough for most underwater photographic purposes. I would dive with it a bit deeper than 20m but would not operate any buttons below 20m. In fact the buttons may depress by themselves at 30m because of the water pressure.

Hi

It's a shame it does not support Olympus cameras. I would love remote control for my EM-5. Yes it seems expensive!

Hi

I have also just tried one. If it had the same video modes as the LX7 I would have bought it.

The ability to control it from a smartphone is super cool though. Truly useful and works like magic!

On Just posted: Olympus Body Cap Lens 15mm F8 review article (127 comments in total)

Hi

I am pleased you reviewed this lens, and I like the fact that the site looks at things athat are a little of the beaten track. It's more interesting like that IMHO.

All the best!

In reply to:

Dennis: Why not look at it in this way; Panasonic, a well-known camera manufacturer, is selling cameras under its own brand as well as branded limited editions like G-Star/Leica, Paul Smith/Leica, other fashion brands...

Interestingly, my browser suggested "d'luxe" when when I typed "dlux" - kind of underlines the nature of this "Frankenstein" camera... ;-)

That is a very good point. The LX range are well made indeed.
