This is rather disturbing. Take Hungary out of my list of "to visit" countries. Just imagine the scores of tourists that will be in violation of this law.

On Fujifilm X-E2 Preview preview (454 comments in total)

"This kind of responsiveness is all-too-rare, and can only help win the confidence of customers."

I am not too keen on giving so much credit to Fuji for "improving" the X series with firmware upgrades. I'd much rather Fuji do its R&D thoroughly before releasing the product.

When the XPro1 first launched and the aperture blade chatter was bugging many people (including me), I got Fuji "front men" such as the Fuji Guys making all sorts of excuse why a user should not care about the chatter. Or how the AF really wasn't as bad as people were portraying it to be. Then Fuji started coming up with firmware upgrades fixing what Fuji was claiming to be a non-issue to begin with.

Did Fuji really believe those were non-issues? Was it sloppy testing? Or simply hoping that users won't notice or care?

I'm glad and happy that X series has improved. But let's not laud Fuji for fixing something that shouldn't have needed to be fixed if Fuji had done it right from the get go.

It does look pretty good, but keep in mind that the left side of the subject's face is well exposed. It looks better than the EM1 and GX7!

Looks great for 3200 on a m4/3 camera! Good noise control without smearing all the details away!

LiSkynden: No flip out screen, no Canon G16 for me. So disapointed. I dont get why they dropped it again (G15). Make up your mind Canon. Why not making one camera that always has flip out screen.? Why drop it and then put it back and then drop it again, and ... what?

It's called incremental improvements. If a camera maker gives us everything we want, then it won't be able to sell us any more cameras. I'm confident that the swivel LCD will return soon enough.

On Olympus PEN E-P5 Preview preview (380 comments in total)

Can anyone please explain to me why Olympus absolutely refuses to allow users to assign metering to the customizable direct function buttons in its cameras??? It's been like this for years now. We can assign every single function under the sun EXCEPT for metering. I don't get it ...

In reply to:

armanius: So glad a major reviewer finally discussed the lack of face detection in Fuji's "advanced" cameras. I hope Fuji will implement face detection via firmware upgrade in its "advanced" cameras, and/or in its upcoming cameras.

I'm always amused at haters that resort to insults and put downs. If someone doesn't like to use face detection, keep the feature turned "off." It's hilarious to see some feel threatened by face detection. I suppose if future Fuji cameras add face detection, people like "samhain" will automatically consider to those cameras as not "real" cameras.

In reply to:

lmtfa: Their are more "CONS" listed here than their are in Pelican Bay Prison. And it still gets an 81% + Gold Award. So it has been decided by those in charge, make a "Retro" looking camera and name it Fujifilm and bingo it's a world class winner. I wish I had my Brownie that I got from Kellogg's Corn Flakes box tops. It surely would garner a 83% and don't call me Shirley:-))

Is that how ratings and awards are calculated or dished outt? Add the pros and cons? Or subtract the cons from the pros? I missed that memo.

Most photos seem to lack detail even at low ISO. They look really soft too, almost as if it was off focus.

Impressive camera! Might have to buy my first Nikon DSLR. I wonder why Nikon kept the ISO button on the left side. Looks like a winner though.

Is the Tamrom an internal zoom? That'd make it a more attractive proposition over the Oly and Pany counterparts.

How many slow "normal" zooms do we need for m4/3? This is about 4 from Pany and about 4 from Oly now? Sigh ...
