photolando: Why does this upset people? It's just an Instax camera that has the look and feel of a Rollie. Looks like a fun little camera actually. They're not trying to revive the actual Rollie film camera, so ease up people, geez. It's just another fun camera to enjoy.

Well, no ones wants to shoot film anymore so why should they? Instax instant film is selling like hot cakes. It’s sctually the smartest thing they could do.

arbux: Typical fuji. Release camera without features its peers had for years (e.g. 120fps on nx1 released 4 years ago) and then offer that in upgrade after a year. Have fanboys applaud of how great is fuji. I recal that fuji added AF to x-pro1 with 4th update and barely working af-c to x-t1 in 20th update.

The same fanboys in the same thread claim that fuji UNLIKE CANON doesn't artificially cripple camera features, while defending lack of 120fps in x-pro2 since "it is camera for stills". Sure, no artifical segmentation, fanboys minds are so used to doublethink they dont even notice. But hey, fuji in its greatness added 4k to x-pro2 in - wair for it - firmware update, very expensive camera wile all competitos had it...

And this bothers you because....? I own Fuji cameras and I don't have problem with it.

I can't for the life of me understand why non Fuji owners come one here and troll or complain about Fuji firmware updates. It's really stupid. I mean it really is. Just enjoy what you shoot and don't worry about what other companies do. It doesn't effect you an ANY way at all. None.

SirSeth: Why can't people just be happy that GFX users have a new lens? No one has to buy this if their hypothetical equivalence garbage puts them in FF bliss land.

Because that's all they do. Most are just trolls and not actual photographers. Just wannabes that think it's all about the megapixels and bokeh. That's it. I'm sure this lens can create absolutely beautiful images in the right hands. I hope I can buy one soon.

Wilight: 1- Fuji 250mm f/4 + Extender 1.4x: 1825g / U$ 4,150
2- Nikon 300mm f/4E PF: 755g / U$ 2,000
3- Nikon 300mm f/4D: 1440g / U$ 1,350
4- Canon 300mm f/4L IS - 1190g / U$ 1,350
Considering that those 300mm are sharp enough to take advantage of 45/50mp (d850/5DSr) and don't have problems with distortion/CA. Also considering that extenders typically degrade IQ, I wonder if the results of the Fuji combo would be any better than the others.

You lose a stop on most if not all tele converter so the Nikons and Canons would be 5.6 as well.

Plagen: Q:What's the difference between Fuji and Microsoft?
A: None. Both rush out with unfinished products and then every week they issue Gigs of "updates".

Every week? Right. Ok.

By paying to be in this magazine can you honesty say you were "published?" Technically? Yes. In all honesty? No. IMHO anyway.

photolando: Every single business raises prices eventually. Even photographers. Imagine that. I only use the PS/LR subscription anyway and for the past yew years it has been worth every single penny. Even if it went up a whole 6% I would not complain. That would be what, $10.60? Ha! Ok.

How is BUYING a company software company out the same as cloning one? At least they still give Thomas Knoll credit everytime you open PS. And that long list of people that scrolls forever if you let it? All those people have to get paid. All these people who think Adobe has made it’s money forget they are a huge corporation with thousands of people on their payroll. As well as all the other business expenses. I have no problem giving Adobe. My $10 every month. That’s what, less than 1/10th of the price of ONE 8x10 I sell? I sold about 240 last month as well as hundreds of other sizes. 10 bucks? Please. It’s the best bargain of all my business expenses. AND I can write it off as well.

Kind of a stupid remark, but as much as PS has helped me create beautiful portraits of my clients, I'd have no problem with that.. Maybe all these other knockoff software companies should donate some of their profits to Adobe since they basically just cloned what the original designers of PS did some 30 years ago.

Santa Fe: Note it was YOU who had to bring in Trump as people like you do when and where you can. Even when has NOTHING to do with the topic. I started talking about freedoms. NOTHING about ANY leader. Just "governments" who deprive people of their freedoms and liberties. YOU made it a Trump thing. Typical.

Oh I see. You turned this into a Trump bashing thing. No thanks. Don’t have time for liberal nonsense. I’m out.

Well for one, that’s why we have freedom of speech. And because we do that will never happen. And If he tried, trust me, even Trump supporters would not support that decision. There is a reason why it’s the FIRST amendment. Your out of your mind if you think any party would support any president who tried that. People should never fear their government. Governments should fear their people.

NottsPhoto: Please mr Cosina can we have all the voitlander lenses in x mount?

Wow. You really don't like Fuji. Shame. Best skin tones of ANY digital camera I have ever owned. Blows away Sony and even my Canon for my portrait/headshot work And as sharp as any camera I have ever owned. But there is no pleasing trolls.

Why the need for a full frame x-mount cameras? I used my L lenses on my 7D all the time. Only thing that happens is a crop factor. Which is true with any lens on an APC camera.

If need be, just get the M mount adaptor for Fuji and use the M mount Voigtlander lenses they offer.

photolando: I use to use Enloops for my Canon flash. Now with the Godox 860II I don't need them anymore. The rechargeable battery included is fantastic. Gets me through at least two events. And an extra one is like $45? I'm done with AA's.

THis is what THIS site is all about. Learning new things. They post a story about AA rechargeable's and simply stated how I won't be using them much anymore. Big deal. Maybe someone will read it and look into flashes with their own recharge battery. I wasn't aware Godox made such a flash until I read something about it on here. Again, so what? I'm done. You can keep responding but I can find more interesting things to talk about on the forums than to keep this silly discussion alive.

I just posted my thoughts about AA's in general and I feel their days are numbered. You're the one who responded. You didn't have to. I disagree with what you posted. Deal with it. You don't have to agree or disagree. It's just me opinion. I really don't care. A battery is battery. Rechargeable or not, anyone can be "prepared" with any type.
