In reply to:

DarkShift: Oh, it equals about 21mm f4.5 lens on full frame. Not too fast for a 900$ lens.

Vignetting is also very extreme, whopping 1.34 EV @ f8.

What I'd love is to see just ONE of these "crop sensor" comment discussions go on without some dumbass equivocating DoF to full frame. JUST ONE.

IstvanNagy: This is a good, very useful review, thanks. Many people are in doubt about the Fujifilm XF 18mm (also vs. the 18-55mm), it would be great to see a similar review for those lenses too.

Wow, I didn't know that f2.8=f4.5. :P

On Adobe's Fujifilm X-Trans sensor processing tested article (137 comments in total)
In reply to:

ogl: X-Trans sensor is 5-6 year late. New cameras 16-36 MP with Bayer sensors without AA filter have very weak level of moire. It's not a problem at all.
X-Trans is invention of new bicycle without technical support. Deadborn.
Fuji can't make the best software for X-Trans sensor and can't solve the problem of their sensor. We get false colours and other types of artifacts instead of moire of Bayer . Adobe and other software developers try to offer anything, but no any serious results.
I can't see any advantages of this marginal technology.

Sigma offers the best software to develop RAW from their specific Foveon.
Why can't Fuji offer RAW converter?

Seems to me you like to WHINE to WHINE.

digifan: I'm sorry but the E-PM2 does have an accessory port AND a flash socket, you could have mentioned that.

Well, the E-PM2 also has a crap fixed LCD and ineffective IBIS.

Well, Panasonic for better or worse has decided not to take on Sony--"maybe the best answer is a small sensor and bright lens".

In reply to:

Gaucho5: Seriously funny how people who apparently aren't interested whatsoever in 4/3 lenses or cameras seem to spend so much time talking about equivalence or lack of it.

Is there truly any justifiable reason to try to tell anybody that you know better than they do what is right for them?

Truly these things can surely be seen as tools.

For example, I play a classical guitar. You can get similar sounds with an acoustic though it's more versatile, but louder sounds with an electric, which weighs a lot more but we're talking rock & roll so you should be willing to sacrifice weight for the pure beauty of that sound!

I PLAY MY OWN CAMERA PEOPLE!!!!

Take it easy! LOL

In reply to:

Martin.au: Panasonic is doing some pretty awesome work with the m4/3 lenses.

If this was a Leica "design" Panasonic would be promoting it up the wazoo and charge twice the price. Similar to the price for the 25mm f1.4 lens compared to the FF equivalents when it 1st came out ($600).

Direct link | Posted on Feb 2, 2013 at 16:55 UTC

Dang, I wish Sigma would come out with two similarly bright excellent lenses for about half the price.

On Metabones adds autofocus to Canon-NEX adapter article (63 comments in total)
In reply to:

SHood: They say it will be slower then EOS-M. nough said.

EOS M with the adapter and the 40mm pancake is a little faster than the 22mm. Both are slower than m43 newer bodies with the 20mm (G3 & EM-5)...I do not have the 18-55 kit to test on the EOS M.

On Nikon announces development of three 1 Nikkor lenses article (76 comments in total)
In reply to:

Dodi73: Hmmm
I think they should come out not only with primes but - given the compact size - also with a fast zoom (think of a 9-36 f/2.8 VR or a 9-50 f/4 VR): those would sell a lot. I think the camera might also have a very good potential but please, don't couple it again with those f/3.5-5.6 zooms again !!! Here lenses are compact enough not to bother about lens size! (not if Nikon expects people to mount on V2 also huge FF prime lenses and zooms, I mean)

A functional measurement for the maximum amount light expressed as an 'f' value for a lens is the same and not dependent on sensor size. The effects on depth of field is different depending on sensor size.

Hmm...let's see..aperture measurements only effect depth of field in yabokkie's on crack world.

On Hands-on with Nikon V2 article (454 comments in total)
In reply to:

rhlpetrus: Interesting, thanks. Looks like what the V1 should have been ... Well, let's see if Aptina improved on the sensor, they have been developing some nice new tech that provides for better DR and less noise in high ISO. The V1 is already very nice, quite close to my old D80 in IQ terms, let's hope this is better, even if by a small margin. The new primes and the UWA zoom also make for a more complete enthusiast's system, excellent for travel and light family shooting. The 10 f/2.8 is very good, I wished it were a bit faster though.

If they're truly going for function over form, an articulating screen is needed.

On Hands-on with Nikon V2 article (454 comments in total)

This is clearly a tour de force in design and aethstetics. Many many camera manufacturers aim to reach the same level of simple elegance of the Nikon V2 but none come close. Well, maybe the Hasselblad Lunar can be considered as lovely.

In reply to:

Raw Images Raw Talk: LX7 is a nifty little camera that would have caused quite a stir before m43, the 1 inch sensor and G1X cameras. Let's not forget the iPhone and smartphones.
A great price would keep this kind of advanced camera around. $359 would work.
After all, there will always be the aforementioned camera models being sold off as new models come in, like the GX1 at $469 right now.

I use a 42mm Circular Polarizer with my RX100 and it works just fine.

Stephen_C: Before the RX100 this would have been a great camera.

Well, I've used the LX5 & 7, own a G3 & RX100...the LX7 does not have a flawless interface. I also have a Pentax Q (almost same size sensor) and the RX100's IQ is better than the LX5/7 and Pentax Q, not even close.

The DXO sensor tri-area scores do make some sense, but the lens "reviews" from them have been pretty much garbage.

HGFGKM: It is a fantastic looking camera with enhanced performance.....I only wish I had the money to buy it...for all those with negative comments and derisive remarks, I am only asking the question: Would you buy it if it cost $1,000?

I'd buy one for $1000, assuming real Nex-7 image quality. Just to get the "you just took a picture of me with that ugly POS?!?" stares.
