  • By DL line, did you mean fixed lens or ILC? If fixed lens, then a D5 calibre APS-C DL would essentially be a fixed lens version of the D500? Or do you mean something along the lines of a better ...
  • Replied in I can't
    I like the idea but I live in the tropics and my pockets just aren't big enough after carrying my keys, wallet and phone. If I lived somewhere cold and needed a jacket most of the time then I'd ...
  • For me, it was also because it was small and at the right price. But I was coming from a DSLR setup and I wanted something smaller for travel. Olympus had some pretty good promotions in Oz at the ...
  • Sorry perhaps I didn't describe it very well but all I meant was keep the existing CX mount as well as registration distance and everything about it except stick a much bigger sensor behind it. The ...
  • Also late but yes, an interesting thread indeed. I also think going into m43 would be suicide for Nikon but a larger than 1" mirrorless would make sense and be competitive, although in an ever ...
  • No matter what happens to Panasonic imaging, at least certain aspects may survive in Leica products. But of course I don't want to pay for the "Red Dot" premium so I rather see Panasonic versions. ...
  • Whilst you're entitled to your opinion, I find many of things you've written a little contradictory. More convenient certainly, especially when working on the tripod. But 'better' needs qualification.
  • They aren't head and shoulders above previous sensors because there aren't that much more head room for current bayer sensors to improve. It's a sign of maturing technology that's all. This is the ...
  • Commented on article Fujifilm X100F Review

    @wolfloid: with the newest dual lens body IS, we're talking hand holding up to a few seconds for similar focal lengths and still getting critically sharp results.
    But I agree, it would add cost and...

  • Commented on article Fujifilm X100F Review

    I agree. But I have a different take. It's harder for Fuji to add IBIS than for Olympus to do a X100 copy with a m43 sensor and IBIS but minus the hybrid finder.
    Not really sure why Olympus haven't...

  • Fair and valid point. No doubt the AF speed varies and I have owned the 70-200/f2.8 VR2 version previously. I shoot a lot of people including fast moving kids but I rarely shoot animals and at ...
  • You can still get the perspective of a 200mm f2.8 with a 105mm/1.4 by cropping your D750 images to 6MP. This may not be up your alley but if you're willing to loose a few MPs, cropping with the ...
  • Yea. I think the D5 FPS may be limited by the mirror more than anything. Newer tech such as stacked sensors have really increased the bandwidth. But even looking back at the Nikon 1 V3, that thing ...
  • I think the technology upgrades all go hand in hand. For an amateur like me, I don't upgrade often but when I do, I would plan my DSLR upgrades along with computer upgrades including storage etc. S ...
  • That's likely it.
    But I was referring to the default cameras that showed up in the comparison tool for the GFX.
    Namely the Pentax 645Z, Sony A7r II and Canon 5DSR

  • Has the lighting changed?
    Red and gold paintbrush on both upper left and lower right side.
    Canon/Pentax pair appear the same but different to the Fuji/Sony pair.

  • My guess: An E refresh to the 14-24/2.8 to complete the pro constant f2.8 zoom series. FL refresh of the 300/2.8 I'm guessing the 200/f2 FL refresh comes next year and we get a more modest fast ...
  • @rrccad: which would make sense if the M3 was a higher end model than the M5 but it's not.

  • 4 has the same 'death' connotations in both Chinese and Japanese culture.

  • If they don't like the 4 number, they should've planned the models a bit better from the start to not use M3 and M5 whilst wanting an in between model too. Did they suddenly realize 'oh $hit!! we...
