MikeF4Black: So it's as big as a full frame DSLR, it weighs as much as a full frame DSLR, but it's got a small sensor.

Interesting.

I love FF but there is not much an FF can do that an APSC can't save for these three little things: 1. It gathers more light; 2. It makes smoother bokies/shallower DOF; 3. It allows you to crop deeper. If you don't fancy any of these three traits you need not go FF.

taktak91: I'm rarely envious of Canon users, but today I'm very envious.

LOL Paul. You are a tricky fella. You like tricks and you don't like to be with your mother in law at night. :) Maybe she can see through your tricks. Better practice more on your tricks. Cheers.

macky patalinghug: Take it for what it is. It's a sports and bird cam. Perhaps the best in this category. Low light creeps, go to 6D. Video crazies, get the 70D. Wedding shooters, grab the 5Dmk3. Going to Syria or Ukraine, bring the 1Dx. Street and candid freaks ought to try the 100D. If you are not sure of what you want take any rebel.

No 4K? Wait for the 80D or 5Dmk4. If you can't wait go Sonny or Panasonic.

Low light go D750 (no, it's the D600 sensor still, lil more details but not quite as smooth as the 6D. Specially at jpeg level.)

Video get the GH4 or A7s (yep)

Wedding shooters grab the D810 (No. Files are too big.)

Going syria Canon 1dx (yep and yep and yep -choose yer yep)

Street never a Dslr (It depends on how you work, I hide behind posts and crowds.)

Ricoh GR Fujifilm X100s or t
The new panasonic LX100 or any good mirrorless
are better options (I have had the EPL1, GF2 and now the X-M1 they are no better than my DSLRs in street or party pix. They are a little worse when the subject moves around a bit.)

In reply to:

joyclick: @ about $1800 does 7D II make sense no matter what specs?
Is the pricing reasonable from the buyer's point?

It is very reasonable for those who bought the first 7D which was sold at around the same price.

Though it might not be very attractive to people like me who are not seriously into sports and are not quite interested in birding.

Perhaps the biggest news in this Photokina. Takes away the thunder from 7Dmk2 and the D750. The smartphone/phoblet will gobble up everything on it's way to becoming the single carry all gadget. It's now a watch, a TV, a map, a video/stills camera, a jukebox, a computer and a toy. Now if it can fix tires and and uncork the wine bottle, everyone will have a chance at playing McGiver.

Nikon DF 2 should have this detachable screen so as to make the shooting experience really film-cam like wherein you get to see what you captured not instantaneously but much much later. Though this Casio though is more "spy and peeping" oriented than "film-cam nostalgia." But the idea of a detachable DSLR LCD does give that "c u later allegator" kick if you detach it while shooting.

I want I want I want an affordable FF DSLR that comes with a free smartphone that controls its video functions. And I want I want I want it to do live streaming too. :)

In reply to:

iudex: A lens (for CSC) this slow should definitely be smaller; e.g. a similar Pentax 18-135/3,5-5,6 is smaller and lighter (405g, 76mm vs. 490g, 98mm), just as is the Sigma 18-200 with longer reach; not mentioning the fact these are DSLR lenses, i.e. built for bigger flange distance. With the biggest X-mount camera (X-T1) it is so-so and for all the others the lens is too big.

True

rondhamalam: euw.. the bokeh.. yuck

yep, I got some Kremlin swirlers too, most m42's behave a bit this way but a bit more sharper at the center and have more soothing colors...

nice piece of writing :), the bokeh and the price though are a turn off :(

In reply to:

maljo@inreach.com: So much more detail in the Canon image; Canon is the winner here at high ISO.

Now, something is wrong here in a BIG way cuz the Canon sensor is supposed to be the whipping boy at DxO. How come it can out punch the Sony celebrities here?

include the 6D too

On Fujifilm announces 1.4x teleconverter for X100/X100S article (130 comments in total)
In reply to:

Edmond Stuart: I still insist that a TLC which extends the focal length by only a factor of 1.4 makes little sense. You get (almost) the same result by cropping the picture with a factor of 1.4. Admittedly, you will lose some resolution, but any TLC will degrade the performance as well. To me, only a TLC which approaches the focal length of a portrait lens (X2.0 or so) is worth the money.
But even then it makes little sense as it runs counter to the philosophy of the X100(S), which was intended as *compact* camera.
I agree with NomadMark: "Buy an ILC and be done with it".

70mm would have been a little more useful cuz then you will have a 35-70 FF equivalent at f/2.0

brycesteiner: "The Micro Four Thirds system, originally developed by Olympus and Panasonic, now lists Carl Zeiss, Astro Design, SVS-Vistek, Kenko Tokina, Cosina, Schneider-Kreuznach, JK Imaging, Tamron, View Plus, Photron and Blackmagic Designs as members. Sigma also makes lenses for the system."

I thought Kodak is a part of the consortium too. They have their own m4/3 out now too.

JK Imaging is Kodak. JK Imaging owns Kodak now. At least for now.
