On article 2017 Roundups: Fixed Prime Lens Cameras (339 comments in total)
In reply to:

davids8560: People talk a lot about these cameras. They have fixed focal length lenses. Each one is made by a different manufacturer. They can be expensive. Which one would Lois Lane pick? Deepak Chopra? Johnny Unitas? Kanye West? How would they fare in destabilized regions? Would you think twice about placing yours on a table at a sidewalk cafe while you sip espresso and leaf distractedly through the morning paper?

what. the. hell.
your comment leaves me puzzled.
and a quick question: WHO CARES ABOUT KANYE WEST???

On article 2017 Roundups: Fixed Prime Lens Cameras (339 comments in total)

I LOVE ALL OF THEM
But could only manage to finance a fuji X100T and 2 used merrills.
However, each of the cameras is amazing, especially the RX1R and the DP0Q... The DP3Q too and the X100 for handling. And heck, the GRII is not to dismissed too.
HECK WHAT WILL I DO?

In reply to:

justmeMN: Nikon management got things backwards. They should have cancelled (poor selling) KeyMission, and released DL.

not true. they should have pushed a good Nikon 1 V4, a f/2 normal zoom and prime lenses for 24mm and 35mm FOV that hold up to the 18/1.8 and 32/1.2

In reply to:

CekariYH: Great article, now I know my a7rII isn't obsolete just yet :-)

A lot has to happen to make a A7R II obsolete!
After all, you produce images to print...

Except you're after cutting edge cameras. Then a newer model will make gearheads restless...

In reply to:

Abbasali79: well, I've been following all the new products news. So happy that Camera Makers still produce such a wonderful product. However, I'm a little upset with Sony for the attitude of "Out with the old, in with the new". I'm a nex6 user and expect Sony to pay more attention to users of the older products. We expect to received a better firmware update and not to be ignored just for the sake of new products sales. We already paid a lot of money for the body and limited but expensive E-mount lens, and would be happy if they'd take care of all the users.

Ahm.
That's not how this works.
Would be wonderful, yes.
But no.

In reply to:

gravelhopper: These "product overview" and "getting started" guides located at such a prominent site as DPR will provide effective sales support to cameras covered over cameras not covered. Any thoughts on this?

No. Because only enthusiasts are on DPR who know their camera stuff.

In reply to:

Absolutic: Fuji needed to update the lens on this camera long time ago. it is not the sharpest wide open. A good camera line, nevertheless.

*sigh* no they don't.
Why does it have to be sharp wide open?
Does your photography suffer, when you don't get benchmark-like results?

I don't mind and even like the softness and slight missing contrast, combines nicely with classic chrome for our family-memories.
If sharpness is what I need, I dial in f/4 or f/5.6. But I am not one too crazy about bokeh, which is the most important to photography for some folks...

In reply to:

tkbslc: Was hoping for better discounts when the X100F came out, but I guess they are getting rid of them anyway.

not sure if function is all you need to lock at.
Sure, 24MP is more than 16MP and the XT20 has many advantages over the old X100T, not debating. What i would call into question is if you actually need the advantages (which can be said for the X100T vs older cameras as well, I know...)

Honestly, I could go with the XT20.
However, I won't.
I just love my X100T so much, it's a camera I bonded with. I will not start glorifying it here, but if someone picks either a X100T of F, one will not regret it. Because the X100 line is awesome with the OVF and its simple design most of all.

It's human to try to get the best. But sometimes, you just need to relax. The difference of all the cameras in the current fuji lineup is marginally and based on small differences. The results, actually photos, will not differ significantly as many want you to believe, unless you need to make use of special features (the leaf shutter comes to mind...).
Just relax...

slclick: I wouldn't be surprised if the F was discontinued due to it's various QC issues. I went through 3 (One purchased, two I tried to purchase at a retail store and couldn't since they had major problems)

dude, you have issues... you come across as an unpleasant person.

goblin: A nice little technological marvel for its time, sacrificed on the altar of strategic misplanning by beancounting olympic champions in self-foot shooting.

Good choice. I sunk some money in it.
Almost bought the 32/1.2, but I decided against it when I saw what Nikon did with the V3...

Fujica: No serious pro would ever consider slow lenses like the:
- Sony 35mm F2.8, S while there is a 35mm f1.4
- 85mm F1.8, while they will most often use a 85mm f1.2
- Sony Zeiss Batis 135mm F2.8 where they will use a 135mm f2.0
- Sony 16-35mm where they will use a 16-35mm f2.8
- Sony 100-400mm where they can use either a 200mm f4, a 300mm f2.8 or a 600mm. Then there are also zooms available that do perform better.

This article is nothing more then shameless promotion article.
DP reviews is getting another low score for credibility and objectiveness.

And 10k for a pro photographer is nothing. Additionaly, their expenses are not like the expenses of a private household...

ICPixJohn: Goodness. Does this thing come with a chiropractic referral, or a scoliosis alignment check? Or do you strap another 3 lenses on the other side for ballast.

Duh!
The right side is where your second camera body is holstered.
Did you learn nothing in this gear-centric forums here???

jmaster: Well, I signed up for notifications at least.

My "walking around" kit is a Canon 100-400 L II, a 24-105 L II, and either a 1.4 X teledapter or a 50 1.4 (or both) . With a 77mm polarizer and 77mm macro-magnifier in my shirt pocket, I can cover just about anything I encounter.

This thing would work perfectly for that.

Looking for that too, buddy.
Wanna hear about my lens collection too?
