TheClueless: Video: maybe.

Photo: If you do, it's just shorthand for "I can't use PS/LR well enough"

"I DO NOT own PS or LR—why would I, I'm a photographer... not a lab-rat. "

This is what old people who're stuck in their time don't seem to be able to appreciate - PS/LR is our darkroom.

And like anything similar - it's a tool. The better you can use it, the more options you have.

It's the same (but a reverse timeline) argument to people waxing lyrical about how digital rangefinders "force you to slow down and consider the essence of photography" or some such nonsense when the reality is that they can't use one. I can slam-focus an M faster than some Fujis take to lock on while also being aware of what my next subject will be.

I really, really, hope when I'm the median age of the people that I took my nick from on this forum while I was still a lurker, that I'm nothing like you guys.

TheClueless: An actual new-gen nifty fifty. Nice to see Fuji joining the previous club of one, Panasonic.

That's not a bad point - the F-stop ring is terrible anyway, and the AF performance is definitely entry-level. It probably wouldn't sell for a *lot* less, but it would be closer to what they're actually worth compared to flagship-tier Panasonic lenses or even the relatively entry lenses from Sony if we take equivalence into account.

What I would want from Fuji F1.4 and under would be flagship lenses that are actually worth calling flagships, instead of "hang on, am I shooting a tweaked old-ass Sonnar?"

Heh. Looks almost like a blown-up version of the original in this (hopefully more popular) cheap + MLC native + 50 equiv + acceptable performance field, the Panasonic 25.

I look forward to Fuji "fans" overstating the abilities of this lens

This is actually pretty sweet - a very rounded set of features. I might replace some of my crappier early-gen TB3 docks with this one, it's handy that it also pulls USB-C duty (with some of those ports not working, I imagine).

TheClueless: Short answer: No, not for any of the reasons you would have bought the GH5 in the first place.

But it has made a MFT choice for hybrid adventure shooters a lot easier.

Me, I just want the GX8 Mk II.

@Horshack it's still nowhere near the video camera that the GH5 is for people who're looking for a semi-pro to pro tool. And I dunno about you, but I doubt many people are buying the GH5 for photography.

danieladougan: Would it kill DJI to allow 24p shooting with this and the Spark? I don't even care about 4K so much, but I do care about 24p for that cinematic look. It seems like a weird artificial limitation designed to make you pony up for the Mavic Air.

Enjoy your telenovelas RED.

It's a slight pain to have to convert the frame but I'm usually importing into Premiere anyway. I do wish I could post directly though if I wanted to with the look I want.

MGJA: I'm not in the target group for this - there's no way I could ever justify the outlay for Leica gear, and if I could the M series would be more to my liking anyway - but tuning in to Leica article comments is always a hoot.

I too peek in for the salty brokebois

Wm G Levy: Most of the comments I see are snarky. It's a Lumix, it's expensive, it's heavy.
This camera is not for everyone so why so snarky?

You don't know?

Really?

apsc4ever: EVFs suck big time. No matter how much money you throw at one. A clown putting a huge tv screen before its eyes. That is what it is.
If you are ok with any evf you are already numb and ready to be assimilated.

Only using cameras with crappy EVF's don't quality you as a worthwhile commentator. It's getting really close now, and that's comparing with the best OVF's.

Michiel953: Apparently converting a D850 body to monochrom (vide Diglloyd) also produces very interesting results.

Problem, rocking a D850 + decent lens for all-day carry isn't my fun idea for street B&W's.

I still love the images from the D850 for an AF body more than anything else, but for rather obvious reasons it really only goes out for a shoot when I'm actually slinging Pelicans to it.

Pffffft

Samsung is so bad at stuff like this

For what it is, the pricing's woefully uncompetitive.

Still not quite there in comparison to the real deal - I guess it's going to take a couple more generations.

I'm also excited about the live ToF use on the Note 10+, I didn't think that was coming for a few more years. It's again not there, but also again, a couple of generations along we'll probably have regular-sized flagships that can do good looking ML effects on both stills and video.

A Owens: The camera advances were well signalled and quite predictable. More interesting is the inclusion of Soli technology into this device. To date it has been a solution looking for a problem. But it will interesting to see what utility it has in the field.

Italians can probably fully interact with Google Assistant without talking

jwilliams: Glad I saw this. Now I don't have any desire to get rid of my 5DS. I think the 5DS actually looks a tiny bit better. Seems like a nice camera, but I don't think any huge leap in IQ has been made. Wouldn't mind trying one, but not for $3500.

The D850 pretty much annihilated the 5DS for me IRL, and the Canon in turn was in many instances worse than the A7R*III*.

Niko Vita: 60 seconds Buffer Clear Time? Is this the new world record? Lots of things can happen in 60 seconds.

Z7 clears the buffer almost instantly. Curious why this is not mentioned in the 'comparison' part.

Why don't you have spares?
