Given the reach of social media this days and the high profile of the victims on it. Its’s the hottest stolen photographic gear in history

Nailed it Leica,
What is the rest of this industry thinking to miss this.
It will take Canon years of research to catch up on this upgrade, i'm not sure Nikon with ever recover

Sony A7 III and Nikon 850 kick it out of the park, Sony shows us the future though, Fuji is my favorite hopefully the format will find some traction but I don't think it will as the sensor is not quite big enough to put clear water above the most developed full frame, and slightly bigger lenses means much bigger prices particularly chasing fast full frame F stop equivalency

don't feel qualify to vote, but every smartphone I buy gets a better phone and more features, can't be a bad thing

More tricky this one, Sony filling out their lens range to fill obvious gaps, Tamron and Sigma poaching CaNikon sales by refining the classics, Fuji's buffing their line of oh so sharp but not quite equivalent lenses.

On article Gear of the Year 2017 - Richard's choice: Sony NP-FZ100 (248 comments in total)

If the gear of the year is a battery then the photo gear industry is not exactly kicking it out of the park with innovation in 2017
If the gear of the year is a battery then the photo gear industry is not exactly understanding what customers are expecting when using its products.
I agree the photo gear of the year is a battery.

eya1: Without the background stories, it's just a decent pic of a young man standing by the sea, a young woman peering through a window (maybe in a bus, perhaps it was raining, maybe the bus had just got washed in the depo...), and a grab shot of a mannequin.

But they have backstories

I won’t buy any, although I got through a few rolls back in the day, It was good in its time but things have moved on. I miss doing black and white print, not enough to resurrect the darkroom. which is full of hassle. but colour slides not so much, not interactive and crafty like print, you send the roll away and slides come back, you project across the room to bore your neghbours with over long presentation of your family expeditions.

A choice indicative of the case that therefore is no Camera of the year, Love Leica but it’s classic 50’s design and functionality can hardly be the significant photographic tool of the year, particularly say verses the latest Samsung and Apple devices. which i would see as the modern equivilant in terms of the impact. (and today they are evolutionary)

This year if not the Sony A9 it’s only a better A7 after all, there is no camera of the year.

Smug achademics, somone convince me why we pay $100k per year for such. Wouldn’t we be better spending that saving say 10,000+ starving children

Tourlou: For a technology to be a game changer, it has to be within the reach of the people. Even the best technology will be a fail if no one can afford it.

Domestic affordability is not required for game changing technology, clearly large engineering, mass production, robotics gas turbine and rocket science might be regarded thus.
I think Mr Forbes uses a little hyperbole in order to make the point that this camera allows a higher level of image quality, dynamic range and tone interpretation, than was previously possible using digital photography, given the uniqueness of the product we should allow him that ahead of any direct experience or detailed technical comparison

Applicable to any premium or luxury product, to the Humans who do all the effort to make such a product possible and existent, it is worth it in order to feed there own children and have a home, is that enough?

Just shareware the algorithms that are used. no need to write a line of code.

Androole: Whoa, a 200mm/f2, that's bonkers.

Fuji really thinks that there are enough X-series buyers willing to spend $5000+ for an APS-C lens?

And serious question, what do you use it for, too long for portrait not long enough for wildlife?

On article Hands-on with new Fujifilm X-E3 (206 comments in total)

Although I am with the it needs an articulated screen and IBIS crowd, The more i consider it it seems like a nice little rig, a keeper if the interface is intelligently implemented. There are few circumstances for me that it it isn't enough camera, and the trad implimentaion of exposure control, the lack of a faux pentaprism the low key simplified design I find appealing. we know this sensor and Fuji's lens line up is awesome.
