Leiduowen: Typo: Down in the price list, the first item is obviously meant to be SliderOne rather than StandOne.

On the Edelkrone website, the StandOne is listed as a new product:

https://www.edelkrone.com/us/p/270/stand-one

The last paragraph in the article above addresses the StandOne.

Karroly: "Cons: there is no connection to the camera."
Then how this can be possible : "Pros: the adapter allows you to change the aperture of the lens FROM the GFX." ?

The Canon lenses I would adapt to the GFX are the 24-70 II, 11-24L & 100-400 II and I may try one or more of the new tilt shift lenses.

Yes, that's the Techart that that can't tell the difference between the 63mm and Canon lenses. Techart told me they are working on a fix but couldn't give an ETA. Steelsring had something else going on with it. Someone suggested that every Fuji FW update uncovers a new issue with these adaoters

I ordered the Kipon . I have my camera set to MF anyway even with Fuji lenses. If I need the help, the AF-ON function overrides MF. If I can MF the EF lenses, I don't mind saving $200.

I checked out your video on the Facebook page. Good to know the GFX is "weather resistant", sadly my body isn't. :)

The Kipon is on sale right now. Very tempted. I have been holding out for a Techart or Steelsring adapter both of which offer AF & EXIF in addition to aperture control. Both seem to have various compatibility issues and I have been waiting on FW fixes. The Kipon would be manual focus only. Do the manual focus tools in the GFX work well on EF lenses?

Rick Knepper: Why doesn't Instagram just do away with those hashtags? Nope, I am not a member of Instagram so I do not know if my suggestion is viable.

cali92rs, you seem to be babbling. Are you a customer of the illicit animal trade or something? You've heard about Facebook's part in the election meddling?

I was referring to the specific hashtags addressed in the article. Instead of a warning, just disable the traffickers' hashtags.

faithblinded: Oligopolies are just as bad as monopolies. They stifle all innovation, and steadily drive prices up up up. Sad day.

I'm sure Roger thought, Hey I want to be an Oligopoly so I can rule the world.

"Best cameras you can buy right now"

This explains why the D850 isn't on the list. :)

I wonder what percentage of this revenue growth the M system has contributed?

Link | Posted on Dec 2, 2017 at 11:16 UTC as 28th comment | 1 reply

Broadening availability won't help market penetration substantially IMO. The X1D must compete with the 645z and GFX. What Hasselblad has to offer for a $2000 premium over the competitors is their reputation. Personally, I am interested in an X1D to complement my GFX and do not mind the $2000 premium but I do not think the site will generate much additional interest until they find a way to drop the price. It's all about the moolah. What it might incite is anger among their brick and mortar dealers.

I guess in another 10 years, we'll see the third lens in this family. or maybe they'll just start over with a new generation. If these lenses (M in general) have such high resolution, they deserve to be backed by a high resolution sensor.

Sdaniella: hands up who has a monitor 500-1000* NITS
not just a monitor 100-400** NITS

*common for displays used for both outdoors as indoors
(mobile computers: tablets & smartphones; without being too bright indoors)

**meant more for indoors only (desktops)

2000-7000 NITS meant more for bright outdoor daytime displays
(signage & advertisements)

I don't know what a NITS is but I am ready for 8k.

My advice was general in nature. If it doesn't apply to this place, then it does not apply. I really shouldn't have to be responding to this if you had read all of my comments on this topic.

I haven't seen a hint of rumor of an A9r since July on SAR. Where are you hearing this?
