On Fujifilm X-T1 First Impressions Review preview (1657 comments in total)

With lenses faster that f2.8, why would Fuji have a top shutter speed of 1/4000 and the lowest ISO in raw of 200? You are stuck stuck at f2.8 in bright sunlight unless you add at least a one stop ND filter. At least with film you can stick in a roll of slow film to make up for lower top shutter speeds. :) Other than that, the camera looks good to me.

On Leica M-Monochrom preview (449 comments in total)
In reply to:

DecisiveMoment: Obviously the images posted in the preview samples need a major Leica firmware upgrade. To post these sample images of such poor quality does a great disservice for this new Leica Monochrom and makes it imposible to make any valid evaluation of what this camera can do. It was a waste of time and effort to post these images. Some are poorly focused and most are boring. :>(

You have point about the quality of the images being important to a review, but comment about boring pictures is off the mark. Camera reviews are about the qualities of the cameras (sensors, ergonomics, ease of menu use, etc.), not about art. A D800 is capable of making a lousy picture (photographer's fault).

Assuming the camera is capable of better quality images, will it make it in the market? How do you tell if an $8000 proof of conept camera (B&W only) fails because there isn't enough demand, or most of the demand is at a lower price point?

I like how this looks like an old WPA posters used by various agencies.
