lexvo: Updated my X-T1 yesterday. Thanks Fuji!

And I bought the MCEX-16 extension tube last week!

Can you stack them?

Flashback: A wooden grip? Hmm...

Any of you guys remember the days, when a decent Hi-Fi unit, had to have wooden side cheeks!

But, the handle probley feels good.

What is the mag range on it, how much for the MCEX-16? Also what lens are you using? Thanks for the info.

On Leica M9 users report sensor corrosion issue article (377 comments in total)

A sign of the times, a Leica camera from the 1970's, if keep up well. Will operate today and great photographs. If they had even todays sensor technology then, the digital Leica would not well operate.
Your sensor is dying even as we speak, the rest of the camera is saying in a little voice, give me film it will not dye. HEE HEEE ; ).

X sync 1/50, mistake or ?. What would be nice is a LX100 with interchangable lens. And 16 MP in place pic-a-ratio.

d2f: No matter how Sony improves their camera FE bodies the lens segment of the system is not keeping up with the customer desires for a wider selection of fast and affordable lenses. By comparison Fuji is listening to their customers and the Fuji XF lens development is addressing the desires of their customer base i.e. 56mm portrait lens and other F1.4 solutions. Maybe Sony believes that this segment will be carried by the third party lens makers like Mitakon, but larger third party lens companies like Sigma will be reluctant to support a niche market until the number of end users increases. And there in lies is the catch 22 for Sony. The only saving grace for Sony shooters are the third party the lens adapters, but that is only a band aid on the problem since I suspect most want modern optical designs with AF and IS attributes as well.

No, Fuji is APS-C camera, compare the A7ll to the Nikon D750. The balance and performance is so much better. Fujion glass holds with CZ and Leica, the 16MP Trans X sensor creates high level APS-C images.....Like the XT-1 review here in DP gives. Wold be over all best but for speed and movie isuses, but best still image quality, in less then FF mirrors cameras.

Thanks

I do not known much about the Sony lens, Minolta made some very good lens. The others they depend on is CZ, they have proven to be very slow. Something tells me Sony just limbs along. Look at how many Frimware up grades Fuji has made. Sony main promblem is that they are electric company that makes cameras, they depend too much on others. Panasonic has it down with a muchsmaller company, Leica ( then CZ ). The A7 cameras are an excellent idea, poorly execute.

If you must have the PASM control system, they should have a nice LCD screen. it is nice to know the sutter speed and F stop. Sorry to say, but low cost point and shoots use the same system, PASM.

km25: Hi MP does not always mean winner. A balance of low light, resolution are only two factors. AF speed, movies and on and on. The best over all may not be the best camera for you. What you want of a camera should your first choice. I do not disagree with DP, but the camera they have in first place, is not a camera I would prefer over my X-T1. I would like more MPs, but lens and operation of the camera are more important to me, that is me. What do you want?

My misatake, I thought I was giving a comment on the Samsung NX-1. Mu43 has a great line up of lens.

It looks like a nice camera. But it does not have good range of lens.

On Canon PowerShot G7 X Review preview (411 comments in total)

I do love this camera, but. Buy an extra battery and the vast majorty of simple users will love it. It does movies and most of all gives nice pictures. The price of this camera in a few months will be under $600.00. High priced for the simple user, but low when compared to Sony and Pansonic. For these people nice pictures, with movies vs cost and maybe size. All else, who cares EVF, camera lay out. These simple users use there phones for pics.

Next stop new 7r, same stuff, hopefully a better sutter. Oh hum, maybe a new CZ lens. Sony system may have more cameras, then lens.

The extension tubes have a good price point, I am sure it will be per tube. But a $100.00 isn't bad. Real Macro for Fuji. The firmware, cannot wait.

Nikon or a Leica, wake-up smell the coffee. Make the Df 11 or create a mirroless camera that is beyond a small sensor. Gold, it should be in the engineering .

On A second glance: two takes on the Leica X article (386 comments in total)

The Fuji X100T looks and handles more like Leica then this camera. The image qauilty will same. I have on idea what Leica engineers are thinking about when design these cameras. I have a feeling the got one group that designs the way it will look, the other the camera itself. The guys that say what about the looks have all the say and you get a great looking poor operating camera as this one is.
If Leica would design a FF 18-24MP, with out mechanical RF and put in an EVF with MF aids and have new AF. Have an aptor for M lens AND NOT MAKE IT LOOK LIKE A CELL PHONE, for under $4k. That may put them back on the map.
For now look to Fuji for a mondern Leica camera.

The basic images look fine to me, in some I can see that depth you can get from high MP cameras. The thing I do not see sharpness of lens, like an hard detail of a old face with the unshaven look, you see very line. These image just to soft to me.
