In reply to:

alcaher: Poverty, war, tragedy, portraits, selfies etc thats the common denominator in these photos. Showing all those pictures the magazine is going to make alot of money

What's there else to show? Flowers and cats? It's life, it's mostly full of tragedies... get use to it and enjoy the ride:)

ekaton: Many comments on price. But if this Leica is overpriced, then so is the Sony RX1rII. Except for the sensor the Q is so much more camera than the Sony in any respect.

@S YU I used both and have a Q. Yes the Sony may have better quality if shot in a tripod or at much higher isos, but for the rest the Leica q is much better. Faster, handles much better, focus is much faster, manual focus is miles ahead, camera is much more responsive, battery life, color pallete, etc, etc... yes Sony might have better image quality but a camera is not only the sensor, is a great part of it but not all, and the Leica has quite good image quality and on the rest is way better then the Sony.

So what was all the fuss with focus tracking? Wasn't it ready for prime time ? :)

Najinsky: Absolutely beautiful 'optical' rendering properties, but it looks like it needs a totally different color response profile (aka tone curves) before it can be appreciated in beautiful colour too.

These colors just don't work for me. Looks a lot closer to an old dead skin vacated by a chameleon, than its current one.

Color is supposed to give off an energy. These are lethargic. Wait, stop the press, maybe this is the dark energy everyone is looking for.

Magnar W thanks for the kind words!

That's what got me out of sony, (and the battery power). I never was satisfied completely with the colors, no matter how much I tired :(

kobakokh: I used Leica M9 last month during the few days. Extraordinary bad sensor, DR is about 5! Lenses are great, I used Trielmar 16-18-21, also 90mm and 50mm, really great lenses, if people will use them with Sony A7 series cameras, they will be surprised. But Leica must change not color of cameras, but SENSOR!!!!!!

I think flruckas concern is that he couldn't shoot cats with the m9, people love to complain about dynamic range and image quality and having absolutely the best when usually they use half of it :) photography is suppose to be fun unless it's your main source of input, and in that case shooting a Fuji is as silly as shooting a Leica :) and I shoot both.

@FLruckas, by the way, not sure about the xt2, but i can tell you the m240 its way better then the xt1, (dynamic range, iso, colors, etc....).

@FLruckas cameras are not only about dynamic range or image quality its the sums of its parts, its about compromises. If it was purely image quality, yes the Fuji will be nice, but far from the best, not even close to nikon d810 or a sony a7r2, actually not even close to a nikon d750, which can be found for about the same price of the xt2, so why people still by the fuji? If the nikon has better sensor, in regards to all aspects, better focus capabilities, and better accessories, (as in flash system). Its also about the shooting experience, I shot nikon, sony and fuji, and still prefer the leica over the other systems, its because of the shooting experience. IF i were to select an equipment mainly because of image quality it will be the sony :) But as many i choose with what gives me the best image and shooting satisfaction. And thats why many buy the fuji as well. If you are buying the fuji because image quality then you might be a bit blind :)

Mind sharing your optimal settings?

I wouldn't trust putting all my images on a 1tb card, but imagine using these as a backup solution when traveling. 2 of these or even 3, minimum space, just copy your images to these babies, and forget about hardrives loosing data because of movable parts or needing to carry huge backup solutions.

Amazing images, probably all done with Fuji equipment :)

I don't understand the criticism. This is an amazing camera for the price. Buy it with the 35mm 1.8 DX lens and you have a great machine for street and carrying around. 24mp and no Olpf. I had many expensive cameras, and never used most of the items the functionalities they come with. I just want aperture priority, auto iso, and manual functions. If you want more things pay more :)

The question I have is how reliable these cameras are.

Best advice? Bring money, with the exception of the casas particulares the rest is very expensive and lacking quality....

On article Nikon D500 versus D750: Which one is right for you? (378 comments in total)
In reply to:

AlexCHStudio: why should an exclusion be made D500 OR D750? why not just buy both of them? both are not very expensive - most people could afford to have 2 cameras instead of 1. I have 810 and 750, now will buy 500 as well. very nice camera - why not?

@I have a dream, I hope you are been sarcastic. 2k USD a month is much more then what most of the people earn. How often do you go out your bubble? Are you in contact some how with reality, besides facebook posts?

In many places of the world a 2k salary is actually a salary not many get.

On article Fujifilm X-Pro2 versus X-T2: Seven key differences (363 comments in total)
In reply to:

Kivivuori: Buying both may be the best solution. After all the cost of lenses plays greater role if I want to chance the whole system.

PS.
I find it difficult to believe that the EVF in X-T2 is better than those found in Leica Q & SL. Of course it would be nice, but....

I have a Q, and used the xpro2 only in a store. But during that quick test, the xpro2 seem to had a better evf. The q is like you are looking through a box...

At least to the Q it feels better :) Not sure about the SL, never tried one, but i heard the evf its the best in its class.

In reply to:

Wild Shooter: I think these competitions are rigged. Other than the winners which are awesome, I didn't even get a mention for my shots which I personally believe are better than a few people sitting on the beach.

good images, but if i were one of the judges I would not have choose them. The winner images I still tend to found much better.

On article Special K? Pentax K-1 Review (2660 comments in total)
In reply to:

malabito: There it goes :) where is the pentax lovers saying auto focus was as good as in Nikon and canon? Yes let's trust the outliers saying that auto focus is awesome, when most of the reviews say the contrary :)

It's good enoug, and it's not a limiting factor for me. But if I was a Profesional shooting for a job assignment that needed the best auto focus, definitely I will not be looking into a Pentax. As someone who is not a pro making a living out of photography the Pentax is good enough for me :)
