plasmolbio: This looks like an amazing camera... But somehow it doesn't quite grab me as the X-T1 does...I know its specs are quite a way behind the A7RII but I've taken a liking to the X-T1's everything's-right-in-front-of-you approach to controls, not to mention the aperture rings on the lenses. More affordable, 'wieldy' lenses (which the 35/f1.4 isn't for example) needed! I might just jump for an RX2 with fast AF and EVF though....

I left FF behind years ago. I love my XT1 and its smaller lenses. Small FF Mirrorless body still relies on gigantic FF lenses.

In reply to:

Just a Photographer: This 'velvet' effect basically comes down to using an 'old fashioned' soft filter. If you are after that effect its cheaper to buy a soft filter for your largest lens and step-up rings so you can use this effect on all of your lenses.

It was designed to give this effect. How could that be flawed? Is my 70-200mm zoom flawed because it won't zoom out to 14mm?

Biowizard: I've paid my money for lenses that were bright, crystal-clear and sharp to the point of agony - why would I want a piece of lens-design failure at THIS kind of price?

C'mon world, this is Emperor's Clothes time: BAD lenses sold at BIG prices for "Artistic" purposes?!

I've always found a big of old nylon stocking does a brilliant job of softening down a Zeiss Planar or Olympus Zuiko 50mm. And it costs a whole bundle less.


That isn't the point of a LensBaby.

It didn't have the latest firmware.

G3User: These images don't impress me. Camera manufactures strive to produce great images from their products and then this guys throughs a yellow instagram filter on them, very unprofessional. I would expect this from my teenage daughter but not a pro. The expressions of the 2 people at the top are not very nice, they are saying to the Frank " I have no respect for you, put that camera down".

They are watching television. No posing for portraits.

Doug Frost: Too bad it's not compatible with their only NEX lens body unit.

It doesnt need to be compatible. The point of the Tilt Transformer is to be able to add Nikon F Mount lenses to NEX and m4/3 to achieve the same effect.

This is similar to a wallpaper that came with my Windows 7. Different perspective though. Where is that?
