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...

Looks like someone is unhappy that he didn't get too many "likes" in his trollish commentary.

neo act: It would be great if the DPR would make a new tests os AF and subject tracking of the Fujifilm cameras. The only AF tests are in the reviews that comes usually right after the introduction with the first versions of the firmware. Especially in the case of Fuji which is continually improving the AF it would be very helpful. I would also love to see a comparison with its competition.

Agreed. Updates to reviews are essential.

TJGKG: Agree with the comments regarding the X100F. Fuji has been notorious for limited firmware updates on the X100 series. It's a great camera but there is room for improvement via updates. While I am glad there is something coming, there really should be more.

That is so odd. The original X100 got tons of updates. But I suppose that was before all these other Fuji lines (XE, XA, XT) came to being.

armanius: Nice!

But no additional phase detection area options for the XT2? Maybe the XT2 is running out of memory for firmware upgrades.

I don't think the firmware for XH1 is expanding the phase detect area. It sounds like the XH1will have more options defining the zones. Currently, we have three zone choices, all which are square shaped. Maybe the XH1 will have a + shaped zone. Or a diamond shaped. That's my guess anyway from the description given by Fuji.

Kudos to Wendy Teal the photographer. Best wishes to the newlyweds and their families, especially to the mother. It is such a sad and yet happy story. Emotional for sure. A good read, yet a tough read.

I wonder if the sale of Pepto Bismol increases each time DPR reviews a camera of high interest. The heartburn seems overwhelming to many.

I thought surely you were going to keep the bike! Sweet looking ride. I enjoyed the video too.

LOL! I know that feeling. That goes for cameras too in this house!

On article Pro Services: Are they worth it? (151 comments in total)

So for Nikon and Sony, a customer can spend $25K in their stuff, and still not qualify to the premium services, simply because photography is not their profession. Bummer for "amateur" Nikon and Sony users.

armanius: Nice!! Much more affordable than the A9 and A7r3, and nice specs. Seems like a winner.

Good point. Now that DPR showed the sample photos with the banding ... Yikes.

On article Panasonic officially unveils 50-200mm F2.8-4.0 ASPH (300 comments in total)
In reply to:

Brian Wadie: no mention anywhere of the warranty period and whether they will offer the option an extension . Also, can you find out if this lens will be repairable, unlike the 100-400 which is non-repairable, has to be replaced under warranty and means the owner has to essentially treat it as a disposable item should a problem occur after the 1 year warranty expires (as mine has). I find this very poor compared to the way that Olympus treats its customers, providing a 2.5 year warranty on registration with an optional 3 year extension on payment of £99. I am holding of any thoughts of buying this or the 200 f2.8 until Panasonic provide clear information that the situation is being rectified

Non-repairable!? I had no idea. What's Panasonic's excuse about that?

BostonC: Internal zoom--that's awesome, esp considering it's a 200mm tele w only 13cm in length. Expect the street price will be down significantly one year from the release.

It says that the lens extends ... unfortunately.

Holscen: Is it possible to use manual focus lenses from Nikon or Olympus on adapters and benefit from the stabilisation?
Thank you

Yes. Although some Olympus legacy lenses would vignette on the Fuji's.

armanius: @DPR staff - can you please add aperture, shutter speed, focal length, ISO, exp comp, and film simulation used to the sample gallery photos when viewed through a mobile browser? Thank you. Keep up the great work!

I see a frame counter, full screen option, share and exit. That's all there is when I'm browsing using Chrome in a S8+. There's no drop down for me with additional info. What are you using?

armanius: No blackout EVF during continuous shooting? Like the Sony A9?

@Richard

Thanks for the quick reply Richard. I just read somewhere else that there is a blackout using the 6 fps with mechanical shutter. But the blackout is so quick that it almost seems there is no blackout.
