On article Samyang teases 'summer blockbuster' lens announcements (122 comments in total)
In reply to:

mick232: Old wine in a new bottle. The Samyang 135/2.0 has just been re-released as a cine lens. What a disappointment.

You mean the 135mm XEEN? - Not the same thing at all....

Such a shame they couldn't properly break into the market... But I never did see any of their cameras in a Samsung store in the UK. In the Sydney, Australia store they had everything in....

"Class leading Dynamic Range" Bit of a shame they took so long to release the review that there's now a DSLR which out performs it....

Did they deliberately wait to do this until the camera has been discontinued? (The X-30 is no longer available in the UK at least)....

M1963: If only I could bludgeon the person who coined the "nifty fifty" expression.

Try explaining what a "Nifty Fifty " is to a beginner who has been recommended to get one by 'friends' but has a micro 43rds camera.... Aaaaargh!!!!

Stop down focusing? What century is this? (And I was all for appreciating this lens....)

It's nice to see the Canon 80D out-performing it. Besides, wouldn't a photo with the amount of DR correction we are seeing nowadays be disqualified from World Press Photo? (just as an example....)

The photographic equipment industry could learn from the film industry in this respect - Fuji already has...

On article Retro through-and-through: Fujifilm X-Pro2 Review (2489 comments in total)

The main thing I want to know is how the the OVF stacks up compared to the X-Pro1? Here's hoping it's framing accuracy has been improved. I find the X-Pro1 OVF to be too tight at top of the frame and way too loose at the bottom...

In reply to:

JonB1975: The main question is - will this camera have the focus issues that their lenses have (through reverse engineering AF rather than working with the other manufacturers)???

Hopefully DPR will test it and we'll find out....!
