"Articulated LCD: Fully articulated"

Strange.

It could be a "rebranded" Yongnuo 50mm f/1.8 that looks VERY similar to the Canon lens in question.

#6 reminds me of Cerebro from the X-Men world :)

Interestingly, most pictures if not all were not made with Nikon lenses. I don't get why would Nikon make such a competition if they don't produce neither lenses with more than a life size magnification nor bellows.

duchamp: Oddly all pictures in this review don't look sharp on my screen (1280x720).

I checked later they don't look sharp in the text of the review but are ok when opened separately in a new tab.

I hoped for an incredible sharpness and lovely bokeh. I see only the lovely bokeh and not very nice CAs. I feel sad.

K1000usr: Is there a camera which sync's at 1/8000 shutter speed? Thanks.

DamianFI, one D2 offers more power than even 4 speedlites but still this set up it's too complicated. A working pro prefers to pay more to ease his workflow.

endofoto: Flash sync 1/8000. You can shoot f2 and 1/4000 on the beach middle of the day.
Medium format lenses can sync only upto 1/800. This is the solution for portraitscapes.

RPJG, for freezing very fast action you need a very short flash duration while maintaining high power output. Speedlites may have a very short impulse at their lowest power output. Studio flashes even at their lowest power are much more powerful than speedlites and they can fire over and over again. For higher output one can combine several cheap speedlites in, for example, drop photography. However, for a working pro, lets say for splashes on models, using multiple speedlites is too cumbersome. Putting aside incompatibility with his light modifiers.

The non-TTL manual version supports HSS!

Both TTL and not-TTL have HSS

Gatoraied: I would have used a disposable bottle. That Pyrex measuring cup is not cheap. A shame.

At $150.000 per camera (lens not incl.) they can afford demolishing these cheapy Pyrex cups. :)

Daniel Lauring: The real question is how durable these will be. The available collapsible beauty dishes, on the market are quite fragile.

Check Elinchrom Rotalux Softboxes/Octas. They aren't positioned as collapsible but they really are, all due to their one of a kind pivoting mount. They are very durable.

In reply to:

Cheezr: Please tell the Fuji Mgt that they really need tilt/touch screens on their viewfinder style cameras. They are obviously capable of engineering a screen that that does not take up extra space and it makes the camera much more flexible. If some people don't like touch/tilt screens they don't have to make use of the feature but I for one am not using my Fuji for macro (for ex.) because I will not lie on the ground just because they are too stubborn to acknowledge that a lot of people like the viewfinder styling and also want the usability of a tilt screen.
Also a WR version of the 18-55 would be nice.

Thanks

For low angle macro shots I use a yoga mat. They are very lightweight and not too big folded and can be fixed simply on your camera bag. On my Lowepro Flipside 500 I put one side in the side pocket and the other side I attach with the stripe. I use knee guards frequently for landscapes but for macro lying is much preferable than kneeling with my b*tt up. If handheld I can even stretch my body a bit forward and make 10-20 shots for focus stacking.
An example of such focus stacked picture handheld while lying:
