In reply to:

coody: The better choice is going for the Fuji X-E3 if two are there for choosing.

Two completely different concepts! I bought this Mk4 instead of the FujiFilm 100/400. After decades of lugging pro packages, and having some arthritis, this all-in-one camera is Great!

Joburger: Hopefully, the RX10 V will have the original 24-200/2.8 lens and the IV's AF.

I'd buy that for sure!

Not I, I need the long zoom for sports and Birding. I’m loving my Mk4!

On article Sharp's new 8K camera is $77,000 (167 comments in total)

Just so you know, the Arri Alexa Family of Cameras is basically in the $70K Range. That is the most popular pro digital movie camera for production work, movies, TV and commercials. It’s been used for virtually every Oscar Best Picture and Best Cinematography nominated movie since we started using digital. It’s only 3.2K ! ... but has great color depth and skin tones. Prime lenses typically are in the $3k to $10k Range, each. The best zooms, Fujinon Premiers, Are in the $60 to $80+K range ...

In reply to:

obsolescence: How come there's only one pixel shift image sample? Is it such hard work? It's not very sharp (maybe the lens is not very good, or maybe the tripod wasn't sturdy enough), but motion is rendered nicely without hatching pattern artifacts, which is encouraging.

I love the strobed pedestrians in image 40!

Image 40 ... the "strobing" pedestrians are fantastic! Love it. Probably not so good for traditional landscape shooters who wouldn't want that "artifact" in their vegatation. I would love to see some more action/sports shots in High Res mode.

I assume it will be available in Black?

So? :-)

I used Nikon’s for much of my pro life. I was glad to have voluntarily switched to Canon and now I’ve added FujiFilm gear. Obviously so have others, otherwise Nikon wouldn’t be pulling back. I DO still LOVE my Nikon P900, But I mainly use it as a 83X spotting scope, that also shots video.

SoundMix: iPhone X is the worst phone for durability. An all glass phone? Get real.

I just hope they don’t end up using two different sourced cell receivers. My 7+ had the “bad” one and I always had less signal then my GF! Grrrrrrrrr

My X was suppose to arrive by Dec. 21 but I just got a notice that it will arrive first week in Dec. I wonder if that means they’re getting fewer orders then they anticipated?

? Pro is giving your client what they want. Pro is making sales. “Art” alone doesn’t pay most people’s bills.

iPhone x projected sales is flat and thin ... unless photographers migrate from P&S and dSLRs to iPhone X which shows better dXO field test *.*

?! The P&S market is almost dead because of smartphone cameras! Nikon just closed down a factory in China.

Thank you for including Action shots! I rented the 3 and found it’s AF not suitable for Sports photography. I’ve already pre-ordered the IV ...

PhotonCollector: Slightly noisy even at sub 100 iso - sort of like the early days of photography - be sure to shoot outside in bright daylight!

? Have you looked at the files ... even at 200% !
