Nicolas Alexander Otto: Wow, another terrific firmware update other camera manufacturers would sell you as an advantage of an entirely new camera body. I'm impressed Fuji is still giving this away for free. Now if only they would sell full frame not only MF and APSC. :D

Well true, but Canon and Nikon didn't and they didn't bother adding it later on via software either. So the general tendency to make up for something that wasn't initially implemented is something I highly appreciate as a consumer.

Nicolas Alexander Otto: Very interesting read, some of the questions were taken right out my head apparently! Thanks for the post!

"In really bad conditions, in really heavy rain, will photographers keep on taking pictures [for long periods of time?] I don’t think so." - this however struck me as weird, I heard from several Sony users that the A7 variants die next to a waterfall or on the coast with lots of moisture in the air. So that is something entirely different.

Oh, never heard anything like that about Canon. But I somehow do not doubt it. :D

Interesting. But honestly I believe the professionals I have talked to over the years that have complained about this issue; not only with the A7R but also it's successors. Although I only once saw that camera shut down and have issues while I was standing next to someone who was using it while on a trip in Iceland next to Seljalandfoss.

In reply to:

CAT Productions: I'm a dedicated Nikon shooter but I do recognize that Fuji seems to really take care of their customers with frequent firmware updates, etc. I like what Fuji does from a marketing standpoint as well.

If they had a decent FF with the lenses I'd leave Nikon in a heartbeat. I love how Fuji listens to the customer base and gives it what it wants. But at least I am not a Canon user.

And there I was hoping they'd throw a FF onto the market anytime soon. This leads me to believe there is no real plan for that. Too bad I don't have the funds for this lovely piece of equipment.

My guess is, the market is saturated and people wait for worthwhile innovations.

I know I am.

In reply to:

Stefan Hundhammer: I wonder how it compares to the Nikon 70-200 f/4 - one of the sharpest Nikkor zooms.

My thoughts exactly.

Nicolas Alexander Otto: Hm, even as a former Pentaxian who loves the K1 and thinks it still is better than most other cameras on the market I am disappointed by what is offered here. Little to no need to upgrade for most photographers I think. Well, at least with this I am no longer tempted to switch back. Sad actually.

Yep, I certainly am still interested in getting a Pentax FF. I love what the K1 brings to the table. Still for me the problem is also that I can't get a UWA lens that takes screw in filters. If that had been addressed at some point I may have switched to the K1 in the past. Now I need that and a body that beats the crap out of the competition like the K1 did back in the day. :D

Hoping for a FF 16-40 f/3.5 or something out of the ordinary.

On article Fujifilm X-H1 Review (1582 comments in total)

If this was a FF body I'd switch from Nikon over to Fuji. Had some of their cameras to toy around with, but they were just to small for my hands - although as an avid backpacker the weight saving is pretty cool. So yeah, this would be a great camera for me. Maybe if the XT-3 version of this comes out with good low light comparable to FF I'll switch. If Nikons mirrorless isn't out by then. :D

In reply to:

Sardonic G: Whatever happened to Tokina?

Now that's a good question. I hope they release an UWA lens with filter thread sometime soon, there is no alternatives to the first party stuff so far.

Nicolas Alexander Otto: Finally Nikon users get an update for the 14-24; as do all other camera users. Good news all around!

Yep, I had it for several weeks then upgraded to the 14-24 because I wasn't satisfied with the image quality. Had the 14-24 for a year and then upgraded to the 14mm 1.8 by Sigma. I mainly was looking for a night photography lens though. Since I prefer to use my 16-35 (less IQ for sure but more versatile lighter and I don't need to carry the filterset into the mountains). But I guess that's just me. I didn't want to shortsell the 14-24 by any means, nor do I want to shortsell the 15-30 (gorgous sunstar) but those just didn't click with me for various reasons.

Hahaha, good that I don't have to give my fingerprints to any camera brand so far.
