Okay..

Is anybody here who needs that "A" on the lens?

I expected it's a removable seal or something.
Because the lens itself is promising and looks good, I'm a bit sad.

What's wrong!?

Can't shoot even "less than 2 sec" continuously at 5fps!!!

I know it's a good one.

Sorry but, surely I prefer "a 16MP sensor", 39-focus points, 5fps and same continuous shooting capacity as D5100, if possible.

On Canon EF 24-70mm f/4L IS USM preview news story (151 comments in total)
In reply to:

CameraLabTester: Canon is a slumbering giant that is feeling the pinch of market share losses to other name brands... old foe Nikon, and to new challengers such as Sony, Olympus, Pentax and others.

This is just one knee jerk reaction: To saturate and flood the market with so many options and products that the consumers, in all this confusion, will just buy them outright without thinking, out of frustration of having to weave through so much clutter of offerings that are essentially more of the same.

Canon will soon offer a free Casino Roulette for buyers to help them choose wisely.

.

Maintaining product lines itself costs much, you know.
I don't think they have so much time and money in their economic situation now.

If your guess is right, I think they're going to wrong way...

In reply to:

blue hour: The AF-S NIKKOR 24-85mm f/3.5-4.5G ED VR
has a suggested retail price of $599.95.

I admit it's neither splashproof nor a macro lens.
It´s a consumer zoom while the canon
is a light weight pro lens with a moderate constant aperture.

But anyway, the canon EF 24-70mm f/4L IS USM
has a suggested retail price of $1499.

What´s going on ?

Love it? or Leave it. That's all.

We can refuse it and get other choice, if we want.
Good is it? right?

marike6: This new lens is so sexy, if it were a woman, I'd date it.

Canon L might be a lady.

However I think none of Nikon's would be a girl. It's too rugged-looking :-)

On Samsung NX 12-24mm to cost $600, 45mm F1.8 around $300 news story (119 comments in total)
In reply to:

starwolfy: I am a Leica owner, Nikon owner Fuji owner, Sony owner, and I had a Samsung NX10 around 2-3 years ago when it came out first.
Samsung's cameras are like said before, the best kept secret in camera industry.
Their little cameras are just a joy to use. Ergonomics are just wonderful and far beyond Sony Nex, Fuji's camera I own too (NEX5 and Fuji X100).
Their lenses are no slouch either and they have some of the best pancakes primes on the market ie their amazingly small and sharp 30mm F2.
Their lenses roadmap is the most photographer friendly on the market too and they are to me the only brand who really succeed to have a real "camera and lens system".

Their sensor was criticized earlier because it was not matching highest performance in terms of noise. Their new cameras have a news sensor which is fairly as good as last Sony's NEX. Samsung just lacks better brand image.

If you go for Sony...you get less for more money in my opinion

Samsung is my second preferred brand after Leica

Majority of Japanese guys are so optimistic about their brand and product so far, as we know.
But you might be right. Honestly I'm feeling same things as what I felt decade ago in TVs market.

One of my friends use the system and I've borrowed it for a day. It's different, but I couldn't see any drawback with the camera than my m4/3 system.

ZAnton: It seems that Fuji are one of a few Photo manufacturers, who understand what lenses are good.
23 mm f/1.4 and 55 f/1.4 are good

If you say so, Im fine.

In reply to:

Eric Glam: 18-55mm F2.8-4.0 should become the standard for all mirrorless kit lenses, instead of the common 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6.

I guess that faster lens would be bigger than the common one and some mirrorless system, especially m4/3, doesn't want the system to be larger so far.

The new 18-135mm seems to be optically improved according to its MTF.
Do you guys know any website which is giving us its sample images?
Thanks,

That's sad though.

I think I never seen such a low score in an interchangeable-lens digital camera before.
