de2000: I started with the Olympus 4/3 system. I still have 2 E-1's, an E-3, and several lenses including the 35-100 F2.8. Don't know what I can do with these now.

Buy the Olympus adapter and use the lenses on micro 4/3rds...

Indohydra: I would like to know how these new medium format cameras (both hass and fuji) compare to the high megapixel full formats in terms of image quality.

I've seen comparison shots from the GFX against the D810, 5DSR and A7R II - all out of camera jpegs (including the GFX). The D810 looked muddy in all images, the 5DSR suffered mainly from lens softness and the A7RII was noisy - especially in anything less than good light. Bear in mind these were all jpeg only and RAWs from all three would be better once processed - but that also applies to the GFX....

JonB1975: Sad to see.... Though I always hated having an article start in one place and then have to page to the back to read the rest - I know this isn't just for the magazines mentioned but for a lot of american mags (bowing to advertising probably)....

In reply to:

achim k: One reason for beginning with 24 instead of 28mm was surely the 1.3x cropped sensors of the professional EOS cameras of those days!

They made the 17-40mm f4 L for the 1.3x crop cameras - this came out with the EOS1-v...

jwd8002: As a Sony A7r2 owner I read this and weep, I really, really weep. Why, oh why why why please tell me why doesn't Sony make a decent walk-around lightweight zoom lens like this Canon. Or the even more versatile and wonderful Canon 24-105 L f4. Instead Sony makes multiple 50 and 85mm primes. Mr Sony please please please give us a decent zoom.

This lens is about 70 grams heavier than the 24-70mm G Master....

10-24mm "unprecedented" in 2008.... wow, 2mm more on the long end than the Canon EF-S 10-22mm I bought in 2005.....

D7000ShooterUK: How can Fujifilm possibly justify the huge price hike over the X-100T?

Once you take into account the drop in value of the pound and the fact that US prices don't include tax, the price is very similar. Be glad you aren't Australian - the original X100 was A$1200 (inc.tax) new - the X100F I can only find for A$1999..... eek!

In reply to:

flashcactus: How disappointing. There's nothing dignified about another me- too mashup with an insulting "soundtrack". I had to mute the sound after 30 seconds and the images were, editing-wise, just another lash-up.
Surely the answer would have been to give the job to someone who knew what they were doing, like Stanley Kubrick or George Lucas or Steven Speilberg. They would have at least got some kind of a classic, and not this trash. Signed: Musician and photographer in advertising and film for the last 40 years.

Good luck getting Stanley Kubrick....

Fujica: So we should be able to tether but can not do so at this moment in time as we need to wait for Adobe to update exchange addon site..

That is NO good Fujifilm!

You're complaining to Fuji about waiting for an update from Adobe?????

Great competition - until you realise they will have the right to use your images for anything for at least 3 years... And note the word 'perpetual' is also in there - think long and hard first!

On article Canon is selling a gray version of the Rebel T6 (147 comments in total)
In reply to:

samfan: Actually I think it looks oddly nice. This 90's plastic has its retro charm too. It looks like the late cheap film DSLRs so one can play hipster. Unlike some 10 years ago when silver/grey plastic felt cheap and tacky, these days it's kind of new again.

I'm a kid of the 90's so this kind of stuff actually gets me more nostalgic rather than the rectangular Fuji style. I mean if the baby boomers can get their design resurgence, can't we have one too? It's not enough for me to run out and buy one of these but eh, if I was a Canon user and needed a 3rd body or something...

Tho I don't get it why these companies don't make even the most basic lens in the same color. Pretty sure the 28-70 and 70-300 lenses back in the day also came in silver.

90's retro??? And then you realise the 90's started over a quarter of a century ago.... *sob*!

Chinon 35mm fixed focus compact - with occasional use of my Dad's Exakta Varex IIb - one of the few left-handed cameras ever made (and I'm a righty)
