Thorgrem: Fuji really needs to make a smaller (maybe pancake) standard zoom. This is to big for the target audience.

Yes please. Fuji needs some pancake lenses. I second that! In the size of similar Panasonic lens.

Meanwhile, today's cameras... Seriously, when do camera makers start making timeless pieces again?

D Gold: DPReview,

Any idea how coma is handled with this lens?

@darngooddesign @Photophile - there is no joke on coma

FarHagh: A $2000, 20MP M43? I would prefer a 12MP at $1200! OK, $1500 but the point is the pixel size would then be around D500's.

how is that relevant to photography?

arhmatic: What about in terms of "features"? This camera completely lacks any form of manual control that actually make a camera... no WB, ISO setting and such... This is only a comparable in terms of pixel peeping, if any, and I am NOT impressed...

@mandophoto --- So apple is not in the business of making cameras, so it's ok if they sell you a dumbed-down version of a camera... Makes sense...

I am not in the business of making cars, but if I do make one, it will come with thee wheels.

Lars, true. There are workarounds, but this is yet another example of Apple stubbornness... I bring this up whenever I have the chance, and I am meet with some sort of skepticism... "if you really need it...". Well, I simply do...

mandophoto: I get that smartphone cameras are not meant explicitly for professional use. Nevertheless the ubiquitous adoption of these cameras for most of the photography being done nowadays suggests a level of competency should be considered in their design. To that end, perhaps a test on shutter button/actuation lag could be considered.

The photo samples clearly show why the stand alone camera is in decline. Well, photography by any means is still photography.

Agreed. This is the only camera for a good percentage of the population.
Apple owes them an actual camera, with proper camera controls.

Gorgeous, but I'd never pay this much for a camera bag.
I'd pay this for a good bag that I can use all the times, and use an camera insert in/out as needed.

Why not just call this "MacBook Air" and be done with it?

"MacBook Pro" coming up Oct 27 2017.

In reply to:

Boused1234: I think Apple should consider two variations of the Pro next go around. There should be the productivity model and the creatives model. The productivity model would be the thin and light barbones mac for the student and everyday professional that doesn't demand much. The creative would offer things such as NFC, Card slots and multiple ports, not just USB. It would be thicker and heavier but we would be ok with that because it's stuff we need. Essentially this was what the air/MacBook vs MacBook pro was...but they have eliminated the gap. They created an overpowered over priced day to day machine and an under powered over priced neutered version of a legacy MacBook pro. They missed both target demographics with this one.

this is why the Pro and Air separation is still needed.
this is really the Air version...

I am fine with no card as long as they stop calling this "pro"

I already feel that he is on the losing side, just by reading the title alone.

I can read his explanation, but that would only fuel the fire...

In reply to:

arhmatic: Terribly crammed touch bar area. Who designs this things? The FN buttons were that slim, so now the entire touch bar is just a narrow line. It looks as if they were ashamed of this, so they made it as small at possible.

Dave, nothing stops me from writing a critique based on a rendering only... It's not whining, this is how design critiques work... I take it that you never went to a design school. Your sarcasm is not helping.

Hey I just gold plated my ikea plates. Selling them for 100x the retail price. Collectible, get it!

What's all this hype about iPhone camera? This is not even close comparison. Not to mention complete lack of any camera settings.

May I compare Apple to Trump? Despite all the negative things you see and hear, you somehow go for this anyway...

In reply to:

Banhmi: Wow, these comparisons had ought to be pretty embarrassing for Apple. Google + Samsung phone-cameras are playing in a completely different league!

Reminds me of the shock I received the 1st time I came on DPR to compare my point-and-shoot's image results to that of a DSLR.

iPhone are not only average as cameras, but also completely lacking any camera setting options.
