JDThomas: Even Fuji can admit the AF isn't on par with the SLR. Something it's Fuji-fans refuse to do.

I can admit it, I just don't care.

Well, that should make everyone happy.

Ah, who am I kidding.

Folks, can we all go back to arguing about equivalence? This is just embarrassing.

Nice samples. I'm keeping my 18-55 though.

On CP+ 2015: Fujifilm shows prototype roadmap lenses article (70 comments in total)

Obligatory comment about how there's no point to mirrorless because the lens doesn't fit inside a Kinder Surprise.

Anastigmat: Fuji is making the same mistake Olympus made with the 4/3 standard. They straight-jacketed themselves with a sensor smaller then FF, and therefore they will always have the disadvantage of fewer megapixels. Canon has just announced a 50mp FF camera. No micro 4/3 or APS-C sensor camera can come close to that many pixels for the foreseeable future. Canon can also increase pixel density further in the future because 50mp still has much larger pixels than their 24mp APS-C models. A FF sensor with the same size pixel as a 24mp APS-C sensor can pack 63mp.

Because we all know megapixels are the only thing to care about, right?

jimrpdx: DPR streak is safe, you simply cannot wrote a Pentax note without a barb. It's insulting to the brand and to readers. No Canon articles about the M-series features not implemented in later announcements, no Olympus reports that note how you cannot tell them apart from six feet away. Pentax put LEDs on one camera that could flash in specific instances, and could be turned off.. yet the stigma will outlive the current writers and no doubt will come up again in 2045. Absurdity reigns.

Or, maybe you're just so sensitive that someone could knock you over with a feather duster.

Great time for cameras!

On Olympus OM-D E-M5 II First Impressions Review preview (1302 comments in total)

I like the interface redesign. I felt the old OM-D had buttons that were too small for my hands: these look much better.

The high res mode looks cool!

Nice. But where is the K3 review?

On Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF7 flips for selfies article (385 comments in total)

Specs aside, it looks absolutely ridiculous when the LCD is flipped up. Like someone taped a TV to a Nikon FM2.

That last shot is pretty awesome.

On Fujifilm announces X-A2 with selfie-friendly LCD article (132 comments in total)

This new eye-autofocus sounds like the most interesting thing. The 'selfie swivel' doesn't appeal to me in the least.

Nice. Samsung bringing their A game.

A lot of people are missing the point here. An f/2.8 standard zoom is an integral piece of kit for professional photographers. Even if Fuji's version is bigger or more expensive than another system, the point is that they're closer to having a complete system. So professionals who have dipped their toe in the water with primes can now comfortably use this as their main system if they want to. On its own it may not be the best value, but as part of a system it will get the job done.

Me like. I hope we see more lightweight telephoto primes in future.

Nice to see this brings out the civil discussion as always...

Forget the cameras, I only just noticed The Beatles were in the new studio comparison tool.

Love them! Great work.

Great video. I laughed at the aborted sports banter.

This series with the X-T1 and NX1 has been pretty informative. It would be cool to see some similar videos for the A7 and EM-1.
