Typo here...2001 in 2nd to last paragraph, should be 2011

Also can we get a TBT on the Fuji S7000...

Once upon a time I borrowed the original 28mm f/1.4 D lens, stellar performance and it was glued to my D3 when I had it for a few days. Here's hoping this lens at least matches the AF D performance. The price...eh you gotta pay if you want to play.

A very nice array of images, I think this lens does well all around and considering the price tag it becomes an even better investment. Nice to see APSC getting some attention to the line.

Just an observation, but if we were not told that these images came from a MF digital camera would we think that they were? I don't think the advantages can really be seen on screen at the default sizes. Perhaps in print?

On article Roadtrip Review Redux: The Fujifilm X100F (173 comments in total)

Great article, reminds me of a trip to NYC I took a few years ago where I challenged myself to bring one camera/lens combo and make it work. It was the Nikon FM and Tokina 17mm f/3.5 SL that made the trip (with many rolls of Ektar 100). I believe it is good practice to challenge yourself, whether it be through artistic means or by the tools used. I had the original X100 until it died, fantastic camera in its own right.

I am waiting for HAL 9000

kuklukklak: A solid nothing-special camera that will probably sell really well as a more serious affordable choice to replace the rebel. Now waiting for the traditional comments:
- I want this feature and it doesnt have it -> no one will buy it for sure (I know 2 persons who said they will not buy it as well)
- I threaten not to buy it
- Its not mirrorless so canon must be dying
There you go. Enjoy

Also:

Only one card slot! This ancient mirror flapping technology camera is already obsolete! hahaha - oh the humanity

Ernest M Aquilio: For the complainers; the simple solution to your self induced quandary...don't buy it.

Mel, I was unaware that my comment could be interpreted as an arrogant fanboy. I will have to use my words more carefully next time. Also, I used to own Nikon (no longer) and wish them no ill will. Complaints to me are usually seen as whining, especially on a type/text forum or comments section - though it is true that they are not synonyms - I can interpret them as such. As photographers today we are quite spoiled with the technology we have access to, so I just don't understand why so much complaining exists. Perhaps a communication error? I just think you have me labeled wrong that's all. Good day

Mel, I am afraid your assessment of me is quite off, but that's okay you are only going by what has been posted on the comments section. Thank you for telling me how I am, that was quite a tangent of assumptions.

I embrace criticism, not whining. Most of what is posted in these comments I perceive as whining. That is my opinion.

It was the 10D that I borrowed from a friend that sold me on the EOS digital system.

Link | Posted on Apr 7, 2017 at 00:02 UTC as 36th comment

This has piqued my interest, combining it with the 77D will make for a nice combo for the general macro work that I do.

Arca45Swiss: I know a lot of people, even pros, use Sony. I once brieflyowned an RX1R but didn't like the cyborg experience. I have a Sony TV but don't think I'd ever buy a Sony camera again.

I felt the same when I borrowed a RX1

Ernest M Aquilio: Lovely little lens, perhaps in a few years on the used market I'll pick one up. The images are rendered very honestly, would be good for documentary or environmental portrait work. In my opinion its also quite charming looking.

Thanks for the samples Barney.

Keep an open mind, a closed one is a terrible waste.

I appreciate the insight, however my thoughts of purchasing it at a discount were much less drastic than your example. I have reasonable expectations. And if the price were to increase then it is just a more viable investment.
