On Hands-on with the Pentax K-3 II article (502 comments in total)

Nice to see innovation going on from the smaller players. Probaly same or better rez than Canon...with better DR.

Really John? Take the sensor out. Do you have a camera? Nope. Thanks for stopping by though.

No...the Canon sensor is inferior.

On Fujifilm XF 16mm F1.4 moves from roadmap to retailers article (222 comments in total)

Terry Breedlove: Not worth the money if comparing to a FF lens. Nikon sells the 20 f1.8 cheaper and is rumored to have a 24 mm f 1.8 on the way which should be even cheaper yet and have better depth of field control.

A 20 f1.8 is still slower than 1.4

Stanny1: 2.7 crop factor? Widest lens gives 27mm? I'm so glad I own a Sony NEX-3 with real 18mm capability. Go APS-C or you don't have a serious mirrorless. Only a real amateur with too much money will buy this Nikon.

Maybe have some knowledge of the lenses available before posting.

fmian: Seriously needs to have a faster lens.
When I can buy a medium format system camera with f/2.8 lens for $250 why would I want this? Add a bit more money and I can get a polaroid back for it as well. And that would be a well known brand as well instead of an unknown.
Anyway, good luck to them. At least it will get more people interested in analog photography.

Good deal fmian!!!

Does your $250 camera make a print?

On X-Transformed? Fujifilm X30 Review article (315 comments in total)

Great review....but it was released about 7 months ago and as such, a bit late to matter.

RichRMA: Resolution looks more like 12mp than 16, but noise control is great!

I find the 16mp xtrans sensor resolves as much as the 18mp Canon sensor....nothing about this is 12mp. Not quite sure what you are looking at.

Sucama: If I change my d7100, will by 7DMKII . not d7200 BYe Bye Nikon, Welcome Canon...

They do have an edge Segaman...the Canon has an inferior sensor with lower DR and thus tonal and color quality, and lower rez. That isnt an opinion...but fact

The Davinator: Not sure why people automatically think landscape = wide.

I find people view a lot of landscape on a more intimate level as opposed to wide vistas. As to view cameras, you can still get very wide....but most of the landscape work you've seen over the last century with view cameras has had the equivalent of between 28 to 50mm in 35mm FOV. It seems a lot of amatuers think the majority of landscape is wide....but that hasn't proven to be the case.

Oh...and 35 or 50 is hardly a tunnel
