In reply to:

mick232: It shows at what price lenses can be made available. Margins of other vendors must be huge.

@Henrik Herranen
it appears they used only one sample. I've read some other user got YN lens better than his 50/1.8 II (non-stm) canon.

Why do you think Youngnuo quality is inferior?

Ruy Penalva: That is a shame. Where we are? This award is mixed with blood of prejudice against Russia people. Too bad!

@Ultan
after it was decided by PC that Moosleems are a race, why not photographers? :) At least, photographers don't blow things up. Unless it's a photographers who is also Muslim xD

Russians are the only group of people you can be openly racist to nowadays xD

Stejo: Maybe next year they'll release an updated mark II version, 10% smaller f/8-16.

You might make fun of them, but they are trying to survive in a shrinking market.

Leonp: Why is it that hard to find out the effective focal distace of most smartphone cameras?

@Leonp
Why stop at 25? Why not 21? or 18?

well with "serious" full-frame raw-capable interchangeable lens cameras they don't publish sensor spectral response either.

Only one back camera? In %current_year%?

Enginel: .... or if camera makers weren't so conservative, you could have filters in-body switchable by electronics controlled by motors

@DennisCh
Oh well, simple sliding filter is unreliable but two mirrors slapping at 14 fps are reliable. And customers refuse to pay for IS & AF.....
Closed-mindedness is the main factor.

Polarizer, ND, IR/IR cut. Not in lens but in body. A small sensored large sized camera like GH5 could hold quite a bunch of them.

In reply to:

nandbytes: It'd be pretty neat if I could choose between shooting in NIR or visible light. That means no more camera conversions and having separate camera for IR photography. That alone would make me swap systems.

Duh, it was already possible long time but crowd outrage (because some rare clothes are too transparent) made Sony to remove this option from consumer cameras. You can already buy a Sigma camera, they are not afraid (because if outrage happened, it would be free publicity for them)

Lol, I thought it was a telescope with 360 mm aperture xD

In reply to:

entoman: Most of us have probably had difficulty removing filters that have become jammed onto lenses, at some time or other. This is an elegant and affordable solution. Like most clever ideas, the obvious question arises - why didn't someone think of this earlier?

The only problem that I can see, is that lenses which only accept screw-in lens hoods would require two sets per lens - one for attaching the filter to the lens, and another for attaching the lens hood to the filter.

This of course is not a problem if you have a built-in lens hood, or a bayonet-fit lens hood.

@entoman
It appears you missed sarcasm in my statement

Someone obviously did, but was responded with "why would anyone need this? we lived for decades with screw mounted filters, tried and tested way", let's do something more useful, like campaigning for marriage equality.

Oh no, heterosexual white males again. It's 2017, why not more diversity?

I wish a portable printer instead to use with more versatile camera. $1 per small print is too much.

robspeed750: More proof that mirrorless is a pointless fad.

@Fujica
Not fair comparison, because the Fuji lacks IBIS & screwdriver which the Pentax has (and aperture lever too -- or two of them?). Canon 100D and and Nikon D3400 are almost as heavy as the Fuji.
