Why $1200-2000 is categorised based on sensor size? I think X-T2 will also fit here. It's priced similarly.

Tonkotsu Ramen: Interesting, wonder which focal lengths image quality will suffer the most..

This is lens is targetted for those come from a superzoom. Not for us. I'm sure still this lens is better than superzoom. People can buy an old DSLR body and use this lens on it as a replacement of superzoom.

Even though I'll never buy this lens.. This lens is superzoom killer. So I like it :D

ms18: Biggest difference is both mounts are different. I recommend selecting one according to the lens choices you want. I just read these comparison for fun. In reality its the available lens that matters. I wish we compare lens more than bodies.

Eg: canon 100-400 with 80d vs Fuji 100-400 with x-t2 vs a6500 with 100-400 (when available.). BTW how people compare autofous reliability etc with two bodies when they can't use the same lens? There are same third party lens for different mount but those can't be used for comparison either

Satyaa: "So, which is better? Well, of course it depends."
Thanks!!

Do lenses play no part in this discussion? For example, compatibility with Nikon's newer AF-P lenses is a requirement for good video experience. Similarly, on Canon side, the STM lenses are better suited for video than the older ones.

Again... "it depends"!

I find the comparisons within a brand useful... D7500 vs. D7200 vs. D500 vs. D5600, or 80D vs. 800D vs. 77D vs. 70D. Based on one's shooting experience and lenses in the bag, it makes sense comparing even a semi-pro with a starter camera or one step higher.

I don't find it useful comparing this way across brands. If this is meant for a beginner who has no background or lenses, then this comparison isn't complete for them to make an informed decision.

Only exception where body matters more than lens selection is landscape with third party lens stich as samyang. But for that we have mirrorless cameras. When it comes to Dslr lens are important for comparison not bodies of different mounts.

Terkwoiz: Was just skimming the new articles and, after a quick glance, saw 35mm fe from Samyang. Got really excited that it was f2 or faster.

Really?? Another 2.8? Wth are they thinking. Everyone has been begging for f2.

It will sell well only if that on par with Sony Zeiss FE 35mm f/2.8. Not just in IQ also in focusing. I would love their second version of f/1.4 with better bokeh.

Link | Posted on Jun 6, 2017 at 05:39 UTC

Good news. Even though I wish bit faster aperture.

Is it a prank? After the shot... How can he stand in the same spot and people are casual If there is a real sniper have them in his scope.

In reply to:

Digimat: For me, having a mirrorless camera is not for the benefit of size (thats practically non-existent with fast glass when you look at the whole system) - but i love the EVF and the precise focusing capabillitys of on-sensor autofocus. i would be totaly in for a hybrid camera. A 5DM, same like the 5D4, but with the option to flip a switch and get an electronic view in the viewfinder. So i could have both worlds in one camera.
Traditional AF module and optical viewfinder, for fast action and to conserve battery, And EVF and precise (face detection) on sensor AF for Portraits in certain situations.

And i find that canons dual-pixel af focuses very nice with (old) ring-type USM lenses. In some low light situations my 5D4 is faster focusing with DPAF than with the AF Module.

Canon may take your idea :D

Great article.

I think it's better not to use the DSLR mounts. It's a bad idea. Canon may go with EOS M as they would have already seen this coming. There is an adaptor which will let you use legacy lenses.

In Canon.

EF-S
Rebel or SL1 with EF-S 24mm STM

EF-M
EOS M5 with 22mm f/2

On article FilmLab is a film negative scanning app for smartphones (112 comments in total)

I don't really understand people still like / shoot film. Because an escalator can be used as steps as well. Shoot digital turn off auto preview. Do not see the images in back screen bring them home and see in computer only. If you need just take the camera to super market comeback then view it in your PC to simulate you went to studio to develop it. don't shoot more than 24/34 pictures. Now you get the feeling of shooting film. Fuji cameras are more like mechanical cameras.

If you can't control mind. Go to a meditation club. Do not shoot film to learn calmness.

In this video he says he has problem with negative scanners. No there is no problem with scanners. Problem is applying chemicals to the film before we could scan.

In reply to:

Chev Chelios: Is this lens really what EF-S system owners having been crying out for?

Canon had a 9 year head start on Fuji with their APS-C lens system. Fuji X now has 5 prime lenses which are 35mm or wider that have apertures of f2 or wider. Fuji also has an ultra wide 14mm f2.8.

Canon on the other hand STILL has no fast wide angle EF-S primes. If you want faster than f2.8 in a prime you need to pay much more to get the larger and bulkier L equivalent.

There is also not a good portrait lens. Canon APS-C is only worth for those in budget and Wildlife / sports shooters. For good quality general photography it doesn't fit because of its lens selection. They love to see people coming to full frame
