Mirfak: I wonder if the NX500 will see any of these features, especially the ones related to improved AF.

Shatteredsky, 150 less vs the nx1 due to no top led panel or weather sealing.

They nerfed the nx500 so much....they could have done sooo much with that camera. Gave it everything the nx1 has, in the RF body. Minus the top led panel and weather sealing. Sold it for 150 less and I'm sure they would have sold more...they got sooooo much right with the nx1 and sooo much wrong with the nx500.

Nx1 in a rf body is what it should have been. That would have made some waves.

joyclick: Shame cannikon !

Sometimes they throw out a bone. The most recent was canons 7d getting a decent fw update. Besides that though...they are just playing the same ol song. They need to change their strategy. Incremental updates can only go on for so long. Seems like the are constantly playing catch up now. They are going by the whole if it ain't broke don't fix it motto and it's just not going to cut it for much longer.

steelhead3: Is this another Beta camera that needs constant updates like fuji or is this a long term camera that will be constantly updated to extend its usable life?

Hey steelhead I didn't read your comment all the way though. I thought that you were just going on about it being a beta camera. Sorry if I came off wrong.

Didn't it get a 87% gold award? Sounds like they got it right....and like this fw update just makes it better...they did alot right with this camera. Samsung being a huge chip processor really helps them. Seems like they overpowered this camera. Now they are taking advantage of this.

On Canon announces 50mm F1.8 STM lens article (309 comments in total)
In reply to:

Togglebolt: 7 blades, sharpened properly can produce a sharp image but the difficulty in disassembling this lens and then to remove the aperture blades to sharpen would be a deal breaker for me. Never mind trying to put them all back together!! Of course if they come pre-sharpened like Nikon's aperture blades, then you can get at least 5K shots before needing sharpening. It's a shame these apertures get dull so easy. I have a closet full of disassembled lenses with dull apertures, such a shame to see all that nice glass not being used. I guess thats how Canon gets everyone to buy new lenses, ship them dull, make them difficult to sharpen and people just toss them & buy a new one, just like a shaving razor!

Lmfao!!!! I needed this in my life. You sir made my day

OldDigiman: Well, the last FW update for the X-E2 was a small subset of what the T1 got, so I'm not expecting anything this time. I like the E2 form factor a lot but not the T1 at all. Fuji's abandonment of support for the E2 has me beginning to wonder if there will even be an E3, which has me holding off of buying any more Fuji glass.

Just a photographer. Fuji has said they wanted there customers to keep their cameras for years and all that crap. Xe-3....itll come eventually. But it's not here now and they are not doing what they originally said they were going to do. Which was to update all cameras to the best of their abilities until end of life. I bought into fuji with kaizen in mind. Can they make the fuji xe2 and x100s af faster and more feature filled. Yes. Should they update both cameras like they said they would do in one of there press events stating what I said above? Yes.

Yay xe-2 is at EOL with no replacement.

Yay fuji....kaizen....Works.

I'm going to have to agree with you. I have an xe2 currently and I'm wondering if they are going to continue to even support it. It is a current model. Announced a mere 3 months before the xt1. Look what they did with the x100s users. Both have the same hardware as the xt1 in regards to sensor and processor. No reason why they wouldn't receive this update. Only time will tell....

I really like VSCO'S stuff. They make really good presets. Tweaks I would have normally have though of or could even do. I know my way around CS5 pretty well. But curves can be changing and or time consuming. These save me some time when shooting.

Hold on....where are those folks saying that the fuji 16mm 1.4 costs too much??? Well here is close to an equivalent in FF for mirrorless! ;) even has the same filter size. Both are weather sealed... Great lenses!

Muahahahahaa

Now shut up!

Direct link | Posted on Apr 22, 2015 at 20:23 UTC as 49th comment

I think Zeiss may know something we don't know by releasing these FF mirrorless lenses. Other FF's on the way maybe from other companies?

No pics of the cool a*s oled? Looks awesome!!! This is how digital lenses should be made from now on (except with aperture rings of coarse)!! Mix the oled tech with fuji lenses and they would be AWESOME!!!
