On article Yashica is teasing a comeback to the camera market (291 comments in total)

That Yashica trailer, esp apparent in the longer b/w version, heavily borrowing from Wong Kar Wai's cinematography

Truly awesome. My two X T2's are smiling.

Rishi brought up valid points, for a portrait/studio photographer however, the GFX has practical advantages over the Sony A7rII, 50mp at 4:3, articulated Evf, Better handling and egonomics and it appears the 120mm borrows from classic lens designs producing very smooth focus roll off with pleasing bokeh, a bit more forgiving than a the latest and greatest full frame lens, I certainly was impressed with the results and handling after using it in a portrait session http://www.mikekobal.com/blog-posts/

Very nice! Fuji is on a roll, look at the lens line up, they got it right from the start. Going to stick with my two X T2 bodies, might get the cine lenses and wait - maybe we might even get a X T2C(inema), that would nicely shake up the video market

Wondering if Fuji will also work with Capture One to enable tethering?

SystemAgnostic: If it has stepless aperture/iris control, then it does to the front of my list of cameras to get. However I doubt it.

previous models had "declicked" aperture options....I am sure this will have it too

mike kobal: A logical design for manufactures with existing lenses. Nikon take a look at this, add fully articulated screen, put a swivel Evf in the right place and I'll be all over it.

66GTO: Very unimpressive photos here are probably doing a poor representation of what this lens might be capable of.

real photographers rejoice, looking at these samples, there is still a place for us on this planet πŸ™ŒπŸ™ŒπŸ™ŒπŸ™Œ
