No scoring system in the conclusion. :)
Just the silver award.
ryansholl: *Obligatory bitching about not having reviewed some other camera*
Hahahahahaha! I was actually thinikng the exact same thing.
Rod McD: This lens (albeit a tad slow) looks like it might be good if Canon's claims about its optical abilities are borne out. It's just a pity there's not a first rate body to mount it on...... The reception to the first EOS M was pretty mixed. I thought Canon said that they were developing a Version 2 that was more enthusiast-oriented? If Version 2 is an enthusiast's mirror-less camera, good lenses might take some competition to Fuji and Sony.
Well I think if your only going to use this lens, the current body im sure is fine. the DOF for this lens is going to be huge.
Which forum are you supposed to discuss the EOS M in???
I forgot Canon came out with a mirrorless.
Well the price of the lens if pretty good.
tkpenalty: No RAW support. That's kinda pointless...
Well there are no programs on your phone or tablet that would even support raw files.
In the review it seems as though the AF was disappointing.
How would it be vs a Canon 7D or.....The EM-5?
I hope these sell well!! I want to see a Zeiss 85mm F2, thats really slim in size!
yabokkie: 12/2.8 looks better than superwide zooms for APS-C DSLRs. 32/1.8 is useless no matter how good is the quality unless << USD 100.this is a good place for Sigma who can make better lenses at lower prices.
Yabokkie, 50mm lenses are much easier to design. whether its for crop of not.
Dont get lens design and crop factor mixed up.
whtchocla7e: Who is Zeiss trying to fool here with these offerings?
According to the reviews out for them, they are actually excellent lenses. The build quality is on a very high level as well.
Well this is good news!, hope it comes to Verizon.
jkoch2: What's the difference between "cash back" and "price cut." The only distinctions I can imagine is that a lower price would also mean lower tax, and would benefit any buyer. The "cash back," on the other hand, presumably does not affect the tax on the gross price, and would not benefit those who fail or forget to apply for the rebate, nor those who return the camera.
Odd that so few manufacturers offer 1" sensor cameras, other than the Nikon 1 or the Sony RX100.
For a compact point and shooter it makes a lot of sense, for a camera system, not so much sense.
I think we will see more people move up to 1inch sensors in the point and shoots. A lot of camera makes are loosing money by selling 1/2.3" sensored p&s.
straylightrun: Beautiful. More news like this and lens gear news please.
But, thats what they do, they review stuff. Its in their name. Anything extra is just that.
JEROME NOLAS: So that's why we still don't have a decent APS-C compact?
For the price, the sl1 should have the 60D's inards, not the t4i's.
must me a Sony shooter...
zenpmd: A lot of people were hoping it would be focus peaking, but its not, and so the suspicions are confirmed that the processor cannot handle it. Glad I got rid of my XE1!
I dont think this is the update everyone has been waiting for.
Lee W: Just tried the XE-1 with new 1.05 firmware. Autofocus certainly no faster with the 35mm 1.4 as claimed :(
Marty4650: Fuji must be following the Microsoft business plan.
They seem to be very fond of marketing products full of bugs, then releasing lots of firmware upgrades ("Service Pack 2?).
Does "Version 1.05" mean that this is the fifth firmware upgrade for this relatively new camera? If so, it makes you wonder why they didn't do a better job testing the camera before release.
Fuji might want to consider making firmware updates into a subscription service. Each time you connect your camera to your computer it checks with headquarters and automatically installs this week's upgrade. The concept seems to be working well for Adobe. :)
Marty, maybe the testing process for the new lens af algorithms was not complete at the release of the camera. Everything has to be tested and re tested and tested again. They could have not released this(like most companies) and no one would have complained. The could have made this a "new feature" on an upcoming camera(like oly and panny do). But they decided to improve the current cameras out instead of releasing new cameras every year.
FW updates are good. No matter how small. Lets everyone know that the camera is still getting some love.
devlin2427: Weirdly enough being the best entry level mirrorless doesn't warrant a gold award.
@AbortabortIt would have been nice to have the PDAF sensor in the 3N, Im sure thats what he is meaning.
flickr is just an easy way to steal images.
Want a wide angle shot of a barn that looks good. Search for nikon 14-24 lens. Im sure youll find a barn you like, poof that image is now in some book that you wont know about. I found one of my baby goose pics in a book and the author told me to screw myself and that the image wasnt copyrighted.
Water marks are easily removed or cropped out.
