Artpt: As ai Fuji owner, I invested in the system because it is cheaper overall....but it seems like a staggering price jump within the lens lineup.... I'll be quite honest that I actually hesitate to go into full frame because I don't think my skill-set and the thinner depth-of-field are right for me. The added focal length for sports is also helpful in this format.

That being said I am struggling to see how this price point will add value to the camera bodies. I know a few nitch owners will certainly enjoy it.

I agree the quality is quite good and reliably Sharp. I can spend a thousand to $2,000 per lens. I do think though this is their pricest lens by at least double so the strategy may be simply brand awareness rather than profit...

Now if the price is 2500 to 3000 then a new world of customers will need created

Looking forward to downloading..... You can't beat free as a firmware update for any camera regardless of allegiance to brand.

Flicker reduction, slow motion at 1/5 speed, and enhanced continuous Focus seem like significant additions

Well-placed camera announcement after strong financial results.

On article Buying Guide: The best cameras under $500 (154 comments in total)

Agree with most of the comments on this string. Forward looking statements without any hands on is hard to make the list especially with the disclaimer that you may change your mind. And I'm a Fuji user.

Artpt: If it is a matter of plug, edit and save to desktop, it would save a time spent transferring files to LR ...or any other software...

No cost is worth the trial....

Agree....using LR now with JPEGs....but happy so far....except in camera conversion is time consuming....

touche CBS,

It's like when David Chappelle used Prince's likeness on one of his shows only to have Prince use that same Chappelle outfit on one of his albums.

Seems petty but rather consistent legally.

Rise of the smartphone

That's a statement taken 15 years ago

I think the underpinnings are a conversion to fully mirrorless systems.

On article RIP Lightroom 6: Death by subscription model (1633 comments in total)

I always thought Lightroom had the intended market share for consumers that are enthusiastic and not necessarily professionals.

I'm satisfied with using the Standalone and intend to stay. It stinks to jump products if you're in this narrow consumer column

It sounds like dxo will have to redefine their values with hopefully the next camera scoring in the hundred and eleven realm next year

Respect for that photojournalist that keeps the world aware of Syria. His stones are heavier than mine that's for sure.

A5100 is working out well,...Sony underestimated the value of the touchscreen for consumers...so I hope they fully implement it going forward in their product lines....A6500 does not have fully use of it....

I wonder what sort of rental incentives Sony will push? It will take at least a year for any new system to filter through via word-of-mouth and usability.

As an enthusiast I love to rent a system for a few days.
