Anti-climax then. The replacements for the 7D and 100-400 are way-way overdue! I can't believe its taken Canon nearly 16 years to upgrade a major lens like this!

Ahhh the magical unboxing experience. They copied that idea from Apple too. Only with Apple you get all you paid for in the box. No battery supplied with the camera - what an incredible cock-up!

On Leica T (Typ 701) First Impressions Review preview (2300 comments in total)

With this model Leica are really trying to be
the Apple of camera manufactures. The super
minimalist industrial design, snap on cases,
premium pricing (well they've always done
that haven't they) Yet despite being an Apple
fanboy myself, this camera doesn't do it for me. I
desire a Fujifilm X-T1 more!

peevee1: Terrible choices of color for a beach camera. Black will get superhot under the sun very quickly, blue can easily get lost under water. They should be bright-yellow, orange, red.

Incorrect, water quickly absorbs red and light. When a couple of meters underwater blue stands out much more.

Rip off!

piratejabez: I like everything I've seen about this camera. Love the optional grip and strap. Can't wait to see first-hand performance reports. Way to go, Fuji!

Me too! Looks like they've taken those retro cues from the DF and incorporated them into a much more compact body that'll actually work as advertised! I really want one of these!

Hurrah! I hope this means the end to all that wooden handled Sony crap!

In reply to:

PerL: What will break or make this is the response of the EVF. The one in XE-1 has far to much jello effect, haven't tried the XE-2 though.

It's excellent apparently.

Can't edit posts on the iPhone apparently, so for grammar's sake! The beginning of my post should've read "Being a..." not "Being."!

What an incredibly underwhelming announcement! And its not even available outside of Japan.

How do you connect a smartphone to this? Its not like they come with tripod sockets.

On Nikon Df preview (2817 comments in total)

I know there are a lot of nay-sayer's here, but I like it - especially in silver, I really liked the FM-2 back in the day and the Df remind's me of that camera. I wouldn't buy one, even if I could afford it. Too big and chunky for me, as I'm moving on to compact and mirrorless, but still very pretty - I'm glad it exists.

In reply to:

nearprairie: If that shutter audio was real instead of sweetened, then it sounds like a dead ringer for my F3HP. (If that's already been submitted, my apology for the redundant observation.) And I agree with those who've stated, in effect, a properly--read:classically--designed DSLR is long overdue. This camera looks both intriguing and promising. Bring it, Nikon!

Battlesbridge I believe, a nice offer but I'm currently living abroad for the foreseeable future.

A few months ago I saw an F3HP (my dream camera back in the early 80s!) in very good condition at an antiques shop selling for between 40 and 50 quid! I contemplated purchasing it, but didn't in the end because I wouldn't go back to using film, so it would probably end up being nothing more than a paperweight.

joexu: That is pretty big, just a DSLR with retro looks. Would've preferred a mirrorless FF

That's what I was thinking too.

What possible advantage could this retro-styled new Nikon offer over a D800? I just don't see the point frankly, unless its much more compact in size - like a Sony A7/A7R, which it doesn't seem to be.

On Will consumer DSLRs be 'dead in 5 years?' post (132 comments in total)

With the sophistication of mirrorless cameras these days, outside of the pro market DSLR's are looking like dinosaurs. But mirrorless are in decline too, so overall this is a worrying situation for photo enthusiasts like myself.

I'm upgrading to a X-E2 sometime over the next month or so, and I'm going to look after it because 'proper cameras' might not be so readily available in a few years time... if these doomsday predictions are accurate?

In reply to:

UnitedNations: Highest shutter speed is still 4000. A reviewer said if wanting to shoot wide open with the 23mm f1.4 lens one would have to invest in a ND filter.
Didn't the X-E1 already have an in built ND filter???

The X100/X100s have built-in ND filters I believe, not the X-E1 because its an inter-changeable lens camera. As for wide-open at f1.4, maybe not using this camera in bright sun-light but at lower light levels where such a large aperture would be useful, not an issue.

This camera looks so much sleeker in all-black than the two-tone silver/black finish.
