kewlguy: A perfect travel camera with 18-55 and an extra battery.

CJ Chen, the 18-55 can be limiting but it can be plenty as well. I have a good sample of this lens as a kit of the X-E1 I bought back in 2013 and I have made large prints out of it. That said, it really depends on what you shoot and how you travel. If I'm to add a lens, the 14/2.8 fits the bill for me. Super sharp, zero distortion, and compact, too.

jyw5: This isnt really medium format...just larger than FF. The price is good...but then you have to buy more glass.

Why can't people just accept the fact that larger-than-FF falls into medium format category?

In reply to:

EOS Paul: What an ugly device. If that was used during WWII then fine, but it looks very much out of place today.

$6000+ for something that has half the bits missing.

Would it take a better photo than my X-T2?

takes better homeless people photos for sure 😁

On article Got focal range? Canon 24-105mm F4L II sample gallery (99 comments in total)
In reply to:

D200_4me: It could use an extra 15mm (like Nikon's version). I pretty much use the 24-120 f/4 all the time. It's a very useful range. Not sure why Canon can't get an extra 15mm in there....or better yet, the ultimate zoom lens that would be just about the only lens I'd ever need would be a 24-200 f/4. Wish they made one (for FF).

are you kidding? Canon can't even make it better than the old version let alone adding 15mm more

The EM1ii is equally overpriced.

5D4...iso6400 noise vs m4/3? No need to even see the test.

Fujica: As thought - lots of noise at the higher ISO's.

As thought, at $2000 I'd want better high iso...

On article Elevating X-Trans? Fujifilm X-T2 Review (2198 comments in total)
In reply to:

wed7: This review makes it even harder for me, I am looking either at Fujifilm XP2/XT2 or Pentax K-1. Oh well. =)

I have K-1 and Xpro2. If you have a good lens on the K-1, there is no way the Fuji could compare in term of IQ - this is even without the PixelShift enabled. With the PixelShift enabled at low ISO, even the standard zoom DFA 28-105 performs extremely well. I have shot cityscapes with both and I'd pick the K-1 over the Xpro2 with no doubt - with just 28-105 attached. The shadow recovery, noise, etc - no comparison. In term of lens selection, yes Fuji wins - but I could live with just Pentax 28-105, 43, 50 and DA300.

Anyone know?

absolutely. Works well for my K-1 too.

In reply to:

Kharan: Just another consumer-grade lens, with lots of CA and a really lame aperture. Pentax could've updated the 300mm SDM with this new motor and cause a real splash, or the 50-135mm SDM, but no, they had to update an already updated lens (55-300mm HD was released only a couple of years ago) without making any great strides.

Because let's face it, this isn't going to make Pentax's video any better, not without bodies with improved output.

yes, some CA away from the center of the frame

Pudelspringer: Actually, Summer is coming. Perhaps global websites should be a bit more aware there is an entire hemisphere below the equator

Pudelspringer, you forgot the fact that only North America goes around the Sun.
