  • Commented on Fujifilm X-T1 Review preview

    Some of you obviously have DPR as the one, only, and final review site for cameras like the K3. When DPR doesn't produce what you want, when you want it, for FREE mind you, then you open a browser...

    I think if most on here were really honest with themselves they'd realize they EITHER shoot MOSTLY stills or video, not both equally. Those that TRULY need the best of both in ONE body will...

    BINGO

    This post wins for being the most mature and insightful, period.

    It's really not for the point-and-shoot photographer JeanPierre. Sorry.

    I say the complainers have either neglected to read the MYRIAD reviews already done by dozens upon dozens of other users and want to thrash DPR for not doing something on their timetable are...

    Maybe you guys ought to rent one and actually shoot with it instead of gawking at online samples and making scientific analysis based on that.

    The fuji lenses and the lineup as a whole is terrific. The ones who complain about it the most don't actually know what the total lineup is, and/or don't use the system.

    If you want Olympus go...

    Has a lot to do with cost. Consumers can buy DSLRs with a kit lens for a fraction of the cost of high-end mirrorless, and be thrilled with the results. They represent the bulk of the market outside...

    The nikon 58mm isn't exactly "junk", it's just that nikon didn't properly define the best application for this lens. It was never intended to be an all-purpose 50 for the masses. It is one...

  • "Poking the shutter button when on a tripod..."
    SERIOUSLY?????

    Maybe you should read up on the proper use of a tripod, and the application of things like shutter release cords, timers, and mirror...

  • @ reactive
    With your line of thought the same can be said of any super-wide, macro, or telephoto prime. Doesn't make it any less than it is just because you're dumpster diving for cheap glass.

  • HAHAHAHAHAHAHA...... Fanboys.

  • Dstudio wins for dumbest comment yet.

  • @ shamael:
    While you may not like the 50mm focal length, it is NOT an uncommon length whatsoever. You need to study up on just how many more 50mm lenses have been sold compared to other focal...

  • First off, this is NOT a "nifty fifty". Sigma INTENTIONALLY set out with this lens to compete performance-wise against the Zeiss Otus, NOT the Canikons. It's important to make that distinction,...

  • Agreed. A 24 and 85 in the Art Series from Sigma would be phenomenal.

  • A little study in the design characteristics of the lens would be helpful to understand why it is what it is. While you're at it, consider the zeiss Otus.
