oselimg: The usual numbers worshiping geek whining. Sometimes an effect we overlook or a different look in a photograph makes all the difference and make a lot of money for the artist and stand out from the crowd. If this effect isn't for you why do you feel compelled to make a comment or bash it? Someone with more imagination than you have can make a use of these lenses.

Agreed DFPanno

jeffcpix: A bit restrictive -- having to always put the subjects dead center in the image lest they fall into the swirly zone. Much better results from PS Radial Blur on a separate layer.

Exactly dcolak. I chuckle at the 6 votes up for people who couldnt grasp that simple fact.

ms18: I would do in Photoshop.

Really? I'd like to see how you alter the bokeh for all the varying distances in a single picture.

vscd: PLEASE REVIEW THEM! It would be the first real review since the SD1. Give Sigma the fair chance to compete in the Resolution-Charts.

I like my DP3M and the DP0 is seriously a great camera, but there is no real Review available until now. At least not in your quality ;)

THANKS-

After reviewing the red and pink swatches of the raw conversions for each, the Pentax easily beats the Quattro for resolution. The texture in the red fabric is plain as day with the Pentax, and not so much with the Sigma. A good performance mind you...but the Pentax is a good amount More detailed. Regardless, after trying the Sigma while in Tokyo, I am intrigued by it.

Which Foveon camera is beating the 646Z for detail?

The Davinator: Same image quality as my X-Pro1. Time for a new sensor.

I never said anything was wrong with my X-Pro1. My comment pertains to the continuing use of a old sensor. Time for them to move on to Sony's latest sensors.

ScapingFeet: They should have release this camera at $2799/$2999. Then the performance could have been justifiable.

True..it may. 50mp is pretty amazing

photogeek: Design only a mother could love. Come on, Fuji, it's time to add IBIS and put in a proper Bayer sensor which Lightroom knows how to debayer properly.

@photogeek. But it doesn't work fine with all camera. Like film developers, you don't use the same chemistry for every film. There is a difference in files from every manufacturer when processed with LR, PN, C1, RT, DxO, etc. Your comments of how how it works fine shows you meed to get out a little bit more...because you are not getting it.

Maybe it's time for you to expand your horizons beyond one piece of software.

Medium format users are equally cioncerned with resolution and tonal and color accuracy. The fact that Canon currently is the worst among sensor makes for dynamic rnage and tonal quality pretty much drives Mf users to Nikon. I would never replace my 645Z with a Canon with its current sensor.

Stanchung: I pity Canon users. Just pay for a Sony sensor already.

Even the D7200 APSC kicks its a$$

Seems the best buy is still the D810. Better color, tonality and dynamic range. And rez differences wont show until print sizes exceed about 24x36. You need that size to see the difference between my old D800 and my Pentax 645Z

Being seeing some great stuff here lately. The poll was interesting. It really hammered home what was important to users and what wasn't. And I am loving the photo series from various photographers being posted.

bigdaddave: Not sure why these are on a photo site, but it's amazing to think these pictures were taken with a useless, banding-ridden DR-limited Canon 5D mark 2.

Whatever next.

Big Dad...the site is about digital photography...not gear. Just read the title.

@abrasive-That is false. There were not two choices...but actually 6 choices. Maybe you need to read a little better.

Some nice photos there that showcase how well the camera can perform. Great detail in the files.

lacikuss: Regardless of the un-perfect, old-tech, lousy Canon DR I thought that flower picture to be pretty impressive.

I guess with the super extraterrestial Sony sensor we could also see the ants marching in the soil...

@Operator - I agree to an extent. While I wouldn't label it a disaster, I would not accept the poor tonal and color quality on the leaves knowing other manufacturers don't suffer from that issue. The difference between the D810 and thenCanon while possibly visible in very large print will not be as noticable as the breakdown present in an image like this.

No, it would have made the blotchy tonality in the leaves better.

Danny613: Thank you Fuji! I am so happy that I left Canon FF! I have never been so happy with a camera brand before. It's truly a pleasure being a Fuji owner. The support and updates are outstanding not to mention the quality of the lenses! Can't wait for June! Keep it up!

I agree. The quality of the color is so much better....as is the tonality. The user experience is much better than what I found with Canon. And the Fuji glass is first rate.
