qwertyasdf: Die hard EOS-M fan here, Canon, please make a version without EVF, and make it lighter, I don't wanna pay for something that I don't use!!!

Maybe because I have perfect eyesight?
I never have had any problem using the LCD of most camera shooting in daylight, maybe you should try before you complaint?

Wow, this is a god sent for light weight travelers, the 7.5mm is 170g! If it's priced like other Laowa's, no brainer for me, finally my Oly EP-M2 can go travel with me, horaayyy! (Can get rid of my much hated Sony A7r + Voigtlander 15mm)

Not gonna buy it even if it's 175 Japanese Yen!

Boeing skipper: The cine 85 T1.5 has 14 elements in 12 groups, compared to Sigma's EX 85 f1.4 which has 11 elements in 7 groups.
Looks like the Sigma's 85 f1.4 Art is finally coming.

I think the throat of Nikon mount is not wide enough to accommodate a 85/1.2.

Marty4650: It seems like some folks are willing to go to a lot of expense and trouble to convert a $600 Smartphone into an $200 travel zoom point and shoot camera.

I just don't see the point of this.

Oh dear....the truth hurts, really really hurts.

I miss the good old innocent days, when I look at a picture, if I see white in a picture, then white is white, no big deal. But apparently nowadays, if there is any white in a picture (255,255,255), people go scream "Ohh! Blown highlights, the picture, the camera and the photographer are all crap!!!"

O, and back then when I was still wielding a 400D + 18-55mm, my eyes were also immune to CA, probably had APO eyes.

In reply to:

jackgreen: so basically, this helps sometimes to overcome smass front- and back focus problem with DSLR cameras. Luckily mirrorless ones as Sony A7 does not have this issue, as they focus from the actual sensor,

But subject movement or even movement by the photographer itself may still throw the picture ever so slightly OOF.

In reply to:

faithblinded: Does Amazon own Kickstarter? That would certainly explain the push here towards vaporware spending. Go buy a bag that exists now, you'll be much better off.

I'd really like to support newcomers, but why I have to do so at a cost to myself? What benefits do I get? I thought the original idea of Kickstarter was to cover the developer's cost so that a great product can come to fruition. I would happily risk my money if the product was sold AT COST (that's including the developer's reasonable salary). But obviously developers are getting huge profits from kickstarter, even more so if they don't deliver and just bag the money and walk away, yes, they don't even have to run, because they have no consequences.

In reply to:

R N: "we'd expect"... These statements in the absence of data are worthless. "we'd expect" DR will still lag behind... Based on what evidence?

"we'd expect" that coming from DP Review though, wouldn't we? I do have data for this last statement: the text of the preview itself.

Why the surprise? DPreview commentors (or commentators?) have supernatural abilities, they always know the image quality of a lens / camera wayyyyyyy before it's even produced, I won't expect DPreview staff to do anything less.

On article Still solid: Fujifilm X-E2S Review (239 comments in total)

The question is, IQ-wise, does this X-E2s perform exactly the same as my lowly X-A1?! (disregarding X-Trans vs Bayer CFA)

BTW, I much prefer the controls of X-A and X-M series over the X-E, shutter speed dial is really form over function, I can use one hand to control the X-A1, but with X-E2, I can only use the lens aperture ring (I can use the camera dial or aperture ring on X-A1!!!).

IMO, browsing through hundreds of Kickstarter projects, Kickstarter is just pure risk with no reward what so ever.

The so called "early bird" price is utter BS, it's a MSRP jacked up by 200% then discounted by 50% or so, and you still end up over paying. If you want a sure return, why not just buy from a established brand, at least you are guaranteed in getting what you paid for.

I think the original idea of kickstarter is good, and there were really some good stuff born out of there, but now, it just overpriced scams.

Thomas Kachadurian: I'm not a nikon guy, but this is the first really ground-breaking lens news we have gotten in a while.

Can't agree more, I'm so bored by the wave of 50mm-ish lenses.

2JoeA7R2: No VR, no IBIS. No deal!!!

I think VR on such a large aperture lens would cause massive decentering problems, no?

Wow, first is the 2x macro lens, then a 15mm macro, then this lens, with a very interesting "Magic Shift" adapter (Interested to see how it works)
No matter how much I dislike the Chinese, this company is bringing out innovation after innovation in a field that is supposed to be creative.

Yes, we really need another camera bag on Kickstarter.....
I had been using Kata backpack for years, and I can only say, with enough practice, I can swing any backpack in front of me in seconds, fluidly.

Why even pay $152 for an unknown brand? The full MSRP is ridiculous. Existing brands with proven quality can be had for less.

qwertyasdf: No matter what Fujifilm claims about their AF over the past few years, the King of AF is always Panasonic!

The new Fujifilm's AF is fine, but they just wayyyyyyyyyyyy overhype it, Panasonic, on the other hand, is rather humble about their insane AF.

I used Canon 1-series bodies, and 1-point AF, it's no match to the new Panasonics, I cant say how fast the DFD AF is in terms of time, because it's instantaneous!
