If this is the future, I'm going back to film.

36mp's is only important because it makes the aps-c lenses 16mp crops. As a stand alone FF 24mp is fine, as a camera that simply MUST integrate well with existing aps-c cameras and lenses a 10mp aps-c crop mode is not going to be good enough and will dampen sales. This is going to be an "add to the system" camera, not a "destination" camera.

Ayoh: A small, cheap DC motor on $2500 lenses? no thanks, especially when ALL the competition have fast ring ultrasonic motors

I've never seen the lens either and it's faster than either the Nikon or the Canon... LOL.

The Sigma 10mm 2.8 Fisheye does the same thing, useless with IS on. Too bad there's no fix for that one.

"Today we announce, that in the future we are going to announce something." Sheer marketing genius. I'm selling my Cannon's and Nikon's in anticipation of this announcement of an announcement.

On Price released for Brikk's 24k gold Nikon Df article (389 comments in total)

The Lux Nikon Kit will be available through Brikk reselllers, Birkk stores and on the company website.

"Birkk stores" is right!! A typo that speaks the truth!

On Fujifilm updates X-mount lens roadmap to end of 2015 article (170 comments in total)
In reply to:

MonteCarlo67: This new lens road map just made my day! The 16mm & 90mm will be on my shopping list. After 25+ years shooting both Canon & Nikon (more Nikon than Canon) I was hesitant to jump to Fuji. I thought, "nobody can compete with Canon & Nikon"! Now, I not only could care less about what Canon & Nikon releases, I could care less if I ever hear there names again!

I think Canon and Nikon do care and will really start caring when enough people start doing the same. It's about selling cameras and every Fuji sold is one less Nikon or Canon sold to a person who shot Nikon or Canon. What people REALLY don't care about is you telling people how much nobody cares about what other people think. LOL.

Powerful presentation. Thank you.

This just SCREAMS Pentax K-5iis. It would be stupid if Sigma didn't make it in Pentax mount.

On Roger Cicala compares three 24-70mm F2.8 lenses article (142 comments in total)

Canon lens with the D800e sensor and PENTAX interface. YUP. That's why I shoot Pentax. My priority is the interface. YMMV.

On Shooting with the Leica M9-P article (629 comments in total)

A Pentax K-5 with Limited Primes does a better job with less hassle and better IQ. The shutter is quieter also. I have shot M3 Leica's extensively, and now am very satisfied with the tiny solid K-5's. Think outside the box... is it about your images or your gear? Don't get me wrong if the Leica turns you on, go for it! But if you want to make images in a leica style digitally, the K-5 is surprisingly satisfying and curiously similar to the M gestalt... seriously.

Direct link | Posted on May 6, 2012 at 22:05 UTC as 111th comment

I don't think this is the same as the original silver LTD. It says the specs are the same as the standard K-5. SO I guess only the color is different this time around.

In reply to:

Peter KT Lim: Fuji are using full frame lenses, that mean if the X-Pro1 can sell, they may add a full frame body in future.

Yea, but they priced the x-pro1 like it WAS full frame, and it's not. You can buy a 5DII for this. Fuji is poor value in comparison.

On Kodak files for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection article (98 comments in total)

Anyone remember "Promise of Excellence?" The first thing they said was "Just the name Kodak is worth 80 billion dollars." When your corporate culture starts thinking they don't have to actually make anything worth buying to be worth something YOU ARE DOOMED.

American management KILLED Kodak, we have a real shortage of leaders in this world today...

And the sad part is, the clueless leadership still walks away with MILLIONS! That is the new world order way: REWARD THE INCOMPETENT ANYWAY!

On US customers willing to spend more for Nikon article (99 comments in total)

There's nothing a Nikon can do that a Canon can't. Except gouge their loyal customers it seems. I've shot both professionally, there's really no difference. Why pay more?

On Canon EOS-1D X overview article (373 comments in total)
In reply to:

MP Burke: I haven't been able to find out how much this camera weighs. Will it set a new record for a 35mm dslr? Now, how about trying to make a digital slr (for those who want a 35mm sensor but don't want high speed motor drives) that is no bigger and heavier than the film slrs of the 1970's or 1980's?

Yes but landscapes shooters can destroy a 5DII in a matter of months... How about a SOLID SMALL large sensor camera?

If Sony really wanted to sell any cameras they would drop the Minolta hot shoe. Talk about a solution in search of a problem...

Small camera - check
Interchangeable lenses - check
Decent build - check
Image Quality - Point and Shoot - FAIL

Someone is going to get all the pieces together sooner or later.
