On article DPReview TV: Sony 20-70mm F4 G Review (148 comments in total)
In reply to:

Pete_W: Panasonic was first with the wider standard zoom, the beloved and very popular 20-60mm lens. Sony obviously felt compelled to follow.

@RonnieJ, all the ones you mention are for cropped sensor. As soon as you take in account their crop factor suddenly neither of them is equiv. of 20mm FF.

Photato: The lady walking the stubborn doggie is the best from this gallery. :)
It makes you forget about the gear and engage you with the moment.

I also liked it more than any other. Before opening it on full screen I was sure though that the focus will be on the dog's eyes.

Filmore Eastman: Why don't they have an AI feature to edit my photos while I sleep?

Even better take pictures for me and edit them while I do smth else.

In reply to:

duchamp: No strap at all. I prefer PD Capture Clip attached to pants belt.

@jaberg, what do you mean by "working overhead" in relation to the Capture Clip?

To Full Stop, most heavy duty cases from major brands have holes for a handstrap. Check Ringke Fusion-X for example: http://www.ringke.com/site/brand.php?id=46

I use it EVERY time I go out with a camera: both for short local walks or weeks hiking abroad. Never failed me. By the way, it doesn't matter for an insurance company how one carries his equipment, the only thing that matters to them that you don't sue them frequently.

Paisley Park: If the X100VI has 40mp and IBIS, I will buy it. It's the only fuji camera that stands out.

Why not E? As in έξι - eksi (six in Greek). :)

In reply to:

DrewRick: Actually interesting how many commenters below bring up interchangeable lens camera alternatives when one of the defining features of the X100 series is the leaf shutter and accompanying ease with which you can overpower the sun with a pocket sized flash or even (gasp!) the built-in flash. Great for traveling light in sun-drenched climates. Does nobody use flash in this comment section?

Most likely the whiners don't own one. :)

In reply to:

Swerky: Wake me up when Fujifilm releases a real compact fixed prime lens camera. An X70 successor. Same lens as X100V, no viewfinder, similar design to X70. Ok if size between X70 and X100V.
Although such a camera is bound to eat sales from X100 series. If it happens, perhaps they'll keep a similar lens to X70 to maximise compactness and keep it as different from X100 as possible.

I also would like to see an X70 successor though my "problem" with it (and all similar cameras like Nikon A and Ricoh GR) is the 28mm equiv.lens. IMHO 35mm is the best focal length for street/candid scenarios which is (in my opinion) the main purpose of such cameras.

I saw 2 headlines on the upper half page :
"Leica partners with watch experts Hodinkee for limited-edition Q2 ‘Ghost’ model"
and
"Nikon's Q2 financials show better-than-expected revenue..."

and my first thought was that Nikon made a Q2 model and it is successful!

Black is boring. I'd prefer a Zfc in some exotic skin finish.

duchamp: Per...what? Never heard of them. I prefer buying memory cards from brands with respectful history.

A somewhat perverted understanding of the word respectful.
Pergear is (still) a noname (at least in memory cards) and most prefer to pay more for a brand they trust.

Photoman: I've had a Nikon D800 with 1.1m and a Nikon D810 with 1.4m shutter counts and both were still working when I sold them. Some shutters are made better than others I suppose.

You were sooo lucky! My D800 failed after 2.5 years and about 40k clicks

Midwest Camera Guy: The issue with this is that the iPad version is subscription only even if you already own Capture One. Since I can have Capture One activated on two computers (in some cases 3), why not just use a laptop? Larger screen, more powerful processor, bigger hard drive, etc. What "enhancement" does paying for an iPad version get me?

I've spent some time trying to figure this out but after a short while, it was obvious that Capture One was not making a great case for using this product.

Because laptop tethered setup on location is cumbersome

tangbunna: USB hub with power-delivery is a must at this time. otherwise, battery will be depleted very fast.

It could be in a form of a battery grip with an m.2 slot and usb-c hub
