On article Should I buy a Canon EOS 6D Mark II? (447 comments in total)
In reply to:

milkod2001: Should you buy6D2? If you don't make living from photography, don't need second card slot, don't do video and upgrading from body older than 6D than yes, go ahead and pay $2000 for camera barely matching 3 years old Nikon D750.

Wait what?... forget 6D2 get 5D4 instead :)

I'd get a K-1and 28-105 rather than a 6D2. Assuming I don't need fancy lenses or shoot video. K-1 offers much better IQ for still photos.

sts2: I don't understand why people get so hung up on the SD card slot. I too thought this was a major must-have when I got my first MBP (which still has one), then I realised: my primary cards are never SD. Always CF (and now XQD), so you need external readers anyway.
I suspect this is true for most pros. Wake me up when a laptop gets launched with a build-in CF card slot.

Because my other cameras use SD cards. It makes more sense for me to invest on good high speed and capacity SD cards that I can use with all my cameras and can be read with my Asus ultrabook that has a built in SD card reader.

Others are not you - many (if not majority) still use SD cards - myself included even when working with 5DSr.

utomo99: I hope 2018 we will see curved sensor used on many cameras

No point if lens manufacturers are still shipping decentered lenses.

In reply to:

Island Golfer: Personally, with all the folks out there who are buying into Sony's Alpha line, with its not so sharp lenses, I think that this TL2 + a 18-56mm lens will become the take-along travel camera of choice.

Just because it's a 'Leica' doesn't mean it's always sharper.

Not too dark.

190k non-stop is not the same as 200K of normal use. I think it's a marvelous camera for that matter.

Next, please do the same to Nikon's 100 years anniversary D5. That should be interesting!!!

dialstatic: Limited edition anniversary tripods. Hmm. I guess there's a market for anything.

There is always something for the stupid people

Jacques Cornell: Pretty soon, the majority of "photographs" will bear no relation to reality whatsoever.

I think many of the so-called human interest, photojournalism type photos are staged these days. So using software to 'enhance' (like the sample here) is considered normal.

Looks like Fuji put a strong AA filter

This one should be working really well with one of those 'peeling sensors' Leica M.

As a canon user, I think a6000 is more attractive for the money. I'd rather get an XT20 as mid range mirrorless.

In reply to:

jaxson: Love to see a comparison with the Pentax K-1, with its pixelshift mode for static landscapes. Pentax really has all the sensor size bases covered 👍🏻

As a K1 user, let me tell you 'static landscapes' are very rare.

In reply to:

mikey fried: "but for a $900 camera, most people will be very satisfied with the output."

What have things come to that this huge amount of money is regarded as a reason to expect lower quality, especially when there are cheaper (lumix) cameras available that provide excellence for less.

I have a m4/3 Lumix. Nope, it doesn't compare well in term of DR and noise to anything APS-C.

In reply to:

MarkInDallas: To everyone who has purchased an x-t20, or potentially reviewing one, please turn down the high ISO noise reduction to -2. It results in MUCH more pleasant results at any ISO over 1600.

MUCH sharper and the trade off of a tiny bit more noise is well worth it. I am not sure why fuji chose for it to be so aggressive at the base setting, but I would imagine it will be addressed in a future firmware update.

Other than that, as an owner of an X-T20 upgrading from an X-E1, I could not be more happy. It produces absolutely terrific results, especially with the 56/1.2.

I always set the high ISO NR to the lowest value, much more natural look :)

Question is, how did decentered lenses make their way to the hand of the buyers? I've had bad samples of 24-105, 24-70 L II, 24 tse and 70-200L ii. Canon did replace them though.
