I daresay the Panasonic is the better-looking of the two this time.

On Photokina 2014: Hands-on with the Fujifilm X100T article (91 comments in total)
In reply to:

Jogger: Fuji has the only successful APSc fixed-lens compact on the market. Others from Nikon, Sigma, Ricoh, etc... have flopped despite being good cameras.

I would worry though, the 1-inch compacts are gonna eat their lunch.

Well, when you factor in f/1.8 and OIS for the 1" sensor compacts, the gap narrows, no?

Menneisyys: "And here's the other new one - the XF 56mm 1.8 R APD - Fujifilm's ultimate portrait lens."

Too bad it haven't really received stellar reviews - the bokeh isn't THAT creamy, after all.

Caption should read 1.2, not 1.8.

luke through the lens: Taken a long time to bring out a "new" LC1 !!

Might try it when its £300 S/H .Until then the Sony Nex 7 will do fine

It's uncanny! There are very similar design elements between the two if you compare them.

Odd how the top LCD is much smaller than on the D610 and D810.

In reply to:

DDWD10: When the price drops to half, I'll buy one to replace my original Q. Glad to see a return to a metal case and good classic looks.

Too bad it still has a 460k LCD though.

What I've read is the Q-S1 has an aluminum skin rather than the Q10/Q7's plastic and the Q's magnesium.

Interesting... inset filter thread with a foam seal for WR.

In reply to:

SaltLakeGuy: Such typical banter regarding the 18-55 "kit" lens. It is perhaps the most wrongly maligned lens out there. I've had the Nikon, Canon and Sony so called equivalents and they don't deserve to be in the same room as the 18-55 OIS. It is exceptional assuming of course you haven't gotten a duff copy which I don't happen to think there are many out there of. As for this new kid on the block, I'm sure for many it will be an essential tool. I prefer the faster 18-55 and frankly I don't shoot in rain conditions nor terribly dusty either so it's of no advantage to me. If I really need longer focal ranges I'll slap on my all time fav the 55-200 OIS which always gets it done as well.

On Canon announces 16-35mm F4L and 10-18mm F4.5-5.6 lenses article (367 comments in total)

Glad to see the 16-35mm f/4L... it should nicely replace the 17-40mm f/4L and hopefully offer much better corner performance.

In reply to:

km25: The D4s is an improvement, the Df is a small ways behind. I love that my X-T1 does well, about a F stop away. Next is the Sony A7S.

I love the look of DR400% on the Fuji cameras.

In reply to:

JDOnrust: Does somebody know if the X-T1 can make full size photo's with the interval timer?

Yes, it can do this for full-sized photos. It cannot, however, combine them into a movie in-camera.

In reply to:

DDWD10: Interesting. Same sensor as the D7100 but it maintains better uniformity at super-high ISOs, avoiding the bottom-edge purple amp glow completely. I wonder what other factors could affect this phenomenon.

Ah, thanks. I now realize that Sony and Toshiba both make 24 MP APS-C sensors.

In reply to:

codeNsnap: Any news of a fast 23mm from Pentax ? Would have considered K3 over Fujifilm XT-1 if there was a fast 35mm equivalent option for K3.

I returned the X-T1 oddly enough because of two issues that Fuji has now fixed - the light leak and the poor directional button feel. I kept the XF 14mm around because I do plan on getting another X-T1 after the price drops a little bit. Dual systems has its advantages, with the Pentax providing in-body SR for some nice 3rd party glass that wouldn't have it otherwise. The wider native ISO range and faster top SS speed vs. the X-T1 are advantages as well.

Yes, the Sigma is a big heavy lens. If you're looking for something compact that is somewhat close to the Fuji 23/1.4, perhaps I could recommend the Sigma 30mm f/1.4 "Art"?

For that role, I'm going with the Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 for my K-5 IIs when it's available. When I returned my X-T1 I began to realize that Pentax really had nothing to compete with the sharp & fast XF Fujinon primes.

In reply to:

Meuh: "The camera does offer sensor shift-based shake reduction (Movie SR) during video capture"

The k3 loses the mechanical shake reduction in video found in the k5 in favor of electronic based (movie SR) which isn't as good and is prone to artifacts (one of the reason's I haven't yet update).

I wish they would update the firmware to enable the option of mechanical SR in video as I don't care about the noise it makes when doing video as sound is recorded externally anyway for the stuff I do.

I don't much care for using SR on my K-5 IIs during video. It clatters around too much and you hear it... although, yes, if you're using an external mic you'd get around that issue.
