  • Ouch that's terrible! Hope it's a close crop and the actual issue is a lot smaller! (When I notice this issue i'm usually zoomed all the way in and zooming back out gives me perspective on how bad ...
  • Also a follow-up consideration: As far as I'm concerned all these lovely X cameras from Fuji are fundamentally ripoffs of the digital designs from Leica. The button layouts, the styling, so much ...
  • Wow what a conversation! It's interesting because I think a lot of us bought these grips realizing that they were at least on some level knockoffs of the RRS ones. I didn't really know RRS as a ...
  • FWIW I agree completely. An almost-stop is both trivial and a gaping chasm that will end up making some shots feel "impossible" (especially at long distances where flash can't help you). The hard ...
  • This is the really interesting question to me. It's obvious that the 55-200 won't be able to replicate the effect of a f/2.8 constant aperture lens that weights and costs 4x as much. Once Fuji ...
  • Commented on Fujifilm X-T1 Review preview

    As I understand it Fuji has always been a more profitable lens company than camera company, or at least that's how it's been for a while. Seems to me selling a camera (razor) without being able to...

  • Commented on Sony a6000 Review preview

    FWIW Fuji fails pretty badly at this too. Any attempts to mix AF point selection with focus-zoom, back-button AF or any button other than shutter result in senseless need to "exit" af point...

  • Commented on Sony a6000 Review preview

    Fair enough DPJoe2, though again the OP might be hard pressed to actually notice that AF difference in normal usage. If he finds AF a huge problem then it would make sense to upgrade.

    All he...

  • Commented on Fujifilm X-T1 Review preview

    Fuji doesn't offer cheap lenses like the Canon 50mm f/1.8 or the atrocious 75-300mm with no IS, so technically you can argue their lenses are "all expensive". That said system camera lenses are ALL...

  • Commented on Fujifilm X-T1 Review preview

    Aside from all the questions of journalistic integrity, I think the most important thing we should keep in mind about Steve Huff and his love for MFT is that he seems to have a full set of f/0.95...

  • Commented on Fujifilm X-T1 Review preview

    It's "the best" by default because it has modern internals, how could an older camera compete? The only real competition are the other new cameras (which is beats in pretty much every way).

    If...

    It's mesmerizingly wrong that Sony still hasn't added touchscreens to their EVF cameras. They immediately solve so many focus point issues, and Sony even uses them on the lower-end NEX-range cameras.

  • Commented on Sony a6000 Review preview

    Have to agree. The kit lens on NEX 6 was awful (especially if you don't use Lightroom, in which case the uncorrected vignetting at 16mm is an embarrassment to the Sony name) so if you want to use...

  • Commented on Sony a6000 Review preview

    @DPJoe2: To their credit Fuji has a good kit lens, leaps and bounds better than the one that comes with NEX cameras, though also bigger/heavier and of course the Fuji cameras can't compete with...

  • Commented on Sony a6000 Review preview

    a5000 should be almost as good, and you would probably be hard-pressed to even spot a difference between photos taken side by side with both cameras.

    The main reason you should consider upgrading...

  • Commented on Sony a6000 Review preview

    This might strike some people as a dumb complaint but IMHO it's very real. I tried the NEX 6 several times in the Sony store while it was attached to the alarm system, and when I finally brought...

  • This was a super awkward issue in the original firmware of the X-Pro1 and X-E1 that has since been fixed for both cameras. What happened was the histogram reflected what was shown on screen, but ...
  • FWIW no one has mentioned vintage MF lenses yet. I'm finding that in dark situations where the AF fails on the X-E1 and the MF on the X lenses disappoints I end up being a lot happier with the ...
  • Thanks for the ideas guys. The credit card one seems like it would have been a safe way to try to solve it. The tech at the camera store said she's seen it many times when a lens is dropped or ...
  • I woke up this morning to discover that when I put the lens cap on my Fujinon 18-55mm 2.8-4 last night I somehow got it horribly wrong, and now no amount of force will free it. Squeezing the grips ...
