I paid for this suite when Google was not even a thought. I still use it today and it works just as good as before. Consider yourself lucky now that it is free.

Sannaborjeson: This app could make sense 5 years ago.
But whoever would use now, it in the age of RNI Films and Snapseed?

NIK actually made Snapseed.

djrocks66: I'm just wondering... I have never used a Leica before. Are these lenses really the sharpest and do they have the best color/contrast? I am pleased with my Fuji system and find the prime lenses very sharp with great color and contrast. Is it part hype or are they the real deal? Just wondering.

Thanks guys

NoMirror99: This should be really really good since Trey worked on it. He's the #1 goto guy for HDR.

Really?

Man, I don't remember this one. ? Looks like this might have influenced the present digital rangefinder style cameras we have now.

djrocks66: The Sigma 150-600 Contemporary was much better and sharper at all focal lengths then this lens with my testing using the 7D2. You can actually use the I.S. While panning too.

Could be I had one of the best from Sigma and one of the worst from Tamron but Im just giving my experience with using both lenses on a 7D2 which I also used the new Canon 100-400MKII. Doesn't make much sense for a lens that you have to turn off the I.S. when you are panning for a shot. Tamron states this on their website. If you forget to shut off the I.S. and are panning you will get mostly soft blurry shots. The Sigma is better in this regard. The Sigma I had was much sharper then the Tamron from 400-600. Funny, I had AF problems with the Tamron and the Sigma was a dream. I had a Bald Eagle flying right at me while using the Tamron and I thought I nailed focus through all the shots but every one was out of focus. The Sigma was so much better for me with this scenario. Like I said this was just my experience. I would suggest people rent these lenses for a week or two and find which one suits them better.

chillgreg: Ren Kockwell called the X100T the best camera in the world. Which gives even more credence to the DPR Silver award. Well done Richard!

@chillgreg It would be interesting if you rented a X100T, used it for a week, and reported your thoughts afterwards.

In reply to:

DDWD10: If I could just play Devil's Advocate for a second.

Both the stepped flare and AF calibration issues would be impossible in a MILC. More complicated machines increase the likelihood of quality control issues. Glad to see Nikon is stepping up to the plate and taking care of this.

You do get the lovely Red Spots flare with the Mirrorless though. I have had Sony, Panny And Oly and shoot now with Fuji and they all exhibit that ugly flare in certain conditions and it is a lot easier to get this Red Dot flare then the Nikon D750 flare.

djrocks66: The 7D2 is for a sports or wildlife shooter on a budget. Enough with the DR talk. We all know how much better the Sony sensors are for that. Compare the D7100 buffer with the 7D2. Compare the AF and tracking, I dare you. :)

Not sure I understand. I am saying that the 7D2 has unmatched AF and tracking. It is one of the biggest selling points in my opinion. I have used both a d7000 and d7100 and they do not compare.

Not sure what you are talking about. I think this image is fine. I have an X-T1 and the 56mm and while I can get a similar shot I don't think it is noticeably better. Maybe my eyes are bad?

djrocks66: I played with this camera at Photoplus NYC. I was excited by the specs but disappointed in the handling and build. It felt like a cheap camera in my hands. Sorry if this offends anyone. I really wanted to like it but it is not for me. I hope who ever orders this camera actually tries it first. The capabilities of it sure do surpass the big guy's offerings but specs alone do not make a camera.

These are good times for photography. Can't really go wrong with any camera. Pick a system and go take pictures. :) All the competition is good for manufactures. It keeps them moving forward.

It had the 50-150 on it. Like I said, I wanted to like it but it just did not feel good in my hands. I actually bought the 7D2 the other day and while it does not compete specs wise it feels so much better and handles like a dream. The AF is unbelievable. I will be watching the reviews of the NX1. I'm sure it will make some very happy.

fakuryu: If this lens is as good as the Pentax DA* 50-135 f2.8 but has a faster AF, Fuji useers will be in for a treat! I love the IQ of the DA* on my K5II but that AF because of the SDM is a let down.

I thought the lens was that good except for the slowness.

I had that Pentax lens and a K5. You are right. To me that DA* 50-135mm had the best image quality of any lens I used. The only downfall was that AF motor. Now that I have an X-T1 I was hoping that the Fuji lens would be like the DA* but with faster Af.

JaimeA: Please do not post any comments until we get a full review of the Fuji X-E2.
How long can we wait???
The camera appeared months ago and has been on sale since.
No excuses please.

I guess he is talking about a full review not a round up review. Looking for a nice big number at the end.
