Nismo350Z: Great specs and features, but I wish it had some kind of small grip on the front. Even a patch of rubber will do just fine.
Thanks for the info, Richard. I prefer the grip built into the camera since some case manufactures' designs do not have consideration for 3rd party grip protrusions. Hopefully, they're aware of the optional grip from Sony.

Nismo350Z: Is the update really available? I clicked on 'I Agree' at the bottom and it takes me to a page indicating Ver.1.20. I downloaded the firmware anyway and it appears to be the old version.
Thanks but another user 2 hours after me confirmed that it was not available. I do see it now.

malteser01: Sirs, every now and then I hit a problem with my XE2 and I wonder if you saw this in your testing. Every now and then I focus on something and get the green confirmation box but the subject on which I focussed is out of focus! I've sent the camera back to Fuji and they confirmed that it was all within tolerance, but this keeps happening. Have you seen this? Any observations/suggestions? This happened just the other night when taking a shot of my wife at a restaurant across the table. I tried focussing three times in succession without moving. The whole photo was out of focus every time. Once I moved, it focussed perfectly. Don't know what to do...oh and this happens with both 18-55 kitlens and 35mm/1.4.
I had this happen when I tried a friend's X-E2 with 35mm lens on a sunny day. Then it also happened while testing out the X-A1 and the 18mm lens in a well-lit store. Tried 3 times and I always get the green dot focus confirmation but the image is clearly out of focus.
Thanks for the great photos, Barney. For a moment there, I almost forgot this was a sample gallery of a lens.
"It's in my hands again."
So I guess film is making a comeback. ;)
It won't be long before mirrors are finally obsolete in the digital age as other major brands will surely follow suit. Bravo to Sony for adding a milestone in camera history.
"Is that a QX in your pocket or are you just happy to see me?"
Good innovation from Sony but the product itself doesn't seem very practical to carry around. It appears chunky and may likely be left at home once the novelty wears off, with the worry of losing it and not knowing how to carry it. Looking beyond that, it does have its uses. Plus, phones can now have something similar to swivel screens on cameras.
If only Nikon had put P-A-S-M on the control dials in the first place, then none of this would have happened.
Nismo350Z: I think I'll wait. Not long from now, Nikon will release a SB-310 due to the thermal cut-out protection being too aggressive ;)
@Thanatham Piriyakarnjanakul: Please look at the back of the SB-300 and tell me how to turn off the thermal protection.
Nismo350Z: It would have been a huge improvement to make it 16mm wider but I suppose that would have taken away some sales of the 16-85mm VR.
@io_bg. Making it 18-to-whatever isn't helping as we have plenty of those, so a wider angle like 16mm is the next logical step. Sure, we all want even wider but that's not realistic in this class of lens.

Reg Natarajan: This thing takes narcissism to a new level.
Maybe he meant that narcissists usually enjoy looking at themselves in the mirror, so then the camera works in that regard. *shrugs*
Nismo350Z: Barney, I think the camera phone users have 20 reasons why they haven't touched ANY camera in years ;-)
Still can't beat a DSLR system for bokeh, though.
@ptox. Where did I say bokeh depends on sensors?? It's systems which includes lenses. There's always someone eager to read out of context.
@howardoark. Yes, that's what I meant...getting pleasant bokeh.

The first page is about psychology and the second page tries to be relevant. The title is somewhat misleading but at least he went out and took photos.
Suddenly, the red and brown Nikon DSLRs don't look so bad after all.Seriously though, Pentax should let you custom order from a catalog of fine leathers and materials like brushed aluminum or carbon fibre. Kind of like a high end luxury car.
Will definitely consider this lens. From the photo, it looks like the zoom rotates in the usual direction of a Nikon. I thought Sigma always made lenses that rotated the other way, like a Canon. Did this change recently or does it depend on the mount?
