LOL I can't believe I looked to see if any if mine were in there! That's what I call optimism.

On Nikon D750 Review preview (1839 comments in total)

Do you know why they changed the position of the AF module between batches, or is it a manufacturing error. Bit of a worry if it's the latter, I like to think that camera companies have a bit of quality control, but I guess that's the first budget to be cut in hard times.

I'd still have one though, and by the time I've saved up for it this will be a distant memory.

samfan: This selfie craze still isn't over? Geez.

Thanks Dames01 but my hands don't swivel that much and my thumbs are a bit clumsy.

Flippy screens were a big step forward that is now going backwards just to please a few fashionable narcissists. I think camera companies are their own worst enemy's.

"This selfie craze still isn't over? Geez."

Unfortunately not. The problem for non-selfie lovers is that the camera's aren't designed with a more useful fold out screen that angles downwards too.

Maybe camera makers are trying to save money as well as making something to catch the craze?

Very nice. If you need a roving reporter to travel the world testing cameras I happily volunteer.

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

Erm, it's exactly the same as the previous one except for the stupid "selfie" screen.

But this is a good thing because it means the old ones will be given away now and they are really nice cameras!

Astoundingly good portfolio. Really enjoyed looking at all of them, but the chameleon catching the bug takes my prize. Talk about the decisive moment!

On Quick Look: The art of the unforeground article (85 comments in total)

I would say there are nice foregrounds in both of these pics, the second particularly good.

Making the most of both situations I would say...

Duh, well obviously...

In reply to:

aqasem: I was waiting for an OIS in the new itetation, i hope they will consider it with full readout sensor for better video ad well.

I've said it before but when I broke my non=-VR 18-55 Nikkor and replaced it with a VR version I found the stabilisation to be a hindrance rather than a help. And I regularly shoot it in low light.

Any Fuji owner who doesn't buy this lens because of the lack of IS is missing out on the advantage of high speed which my Nikkor zooms never had.

Do any of these pics look like they need OIS?

Timmbits: Samsung's 16-50mm F2.0-2.8 with OIS is looking pretty good right now...

Timmbits. Well done for heading straight to the bottom of the barrel.

First off, I did not tell anyone they had Parkinsons if they do not share my opinion.

Second, no I didn't used to take a tripod out with me ever and I hand held shots down to 1/8 of a second regularly with a f5.6 Nikon lens on my D40. Now imagine what results you can get with a 2.8 lens! No slower but darker light. This is why Fuji don't include IS - because it aint necessary.

The main point I make is that if you are photographing people, having IS is pointless compared to having a fast aperture because people move. Ask a professional wedding photographer if you don't believe me. High shutter trumps slow every time.

So don't worry about the lack of IS on this lens unless your hands shake uncontrollably. If they do buy the slower one and save a few quid.

Timmbits. I had a 18-55mm lens with my first Nikon and didn't need IS. When I broke it and brought the new version with IS I thought it was a hindrance rather than a help.

Unless you've got Parkinsons disease I would buy the new Fuji lens with confidence and just not worry about the stabiliser. Never had them on any lens when I were a lad...

"Samsung's 16-50mm F2.0-2.8 with OIS is looking pretty good right now..."

Shame it won't fit on my Fuji....

Besides, you don't need IS on a wide lens. I never had any trouble before, the likelihood of camera shake is irrelevant if you are shooting people because they will move before you've finished taking the shot. And if you shoot landscpaes get a tripod and do it properly!

irm: What is wrong with Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, after all it is a holiday to celebrate the birth of Christ, not just have a holiday.

It was the Romans that brought Christianity to our shores. If only we had been there with our Nikon's to record it all eh?
