On article Throwback Thursday: Fujifilm X100 (163 comments in total)

A beautiful camera that was just too slllooooowww for my needs. I bought the X100S and even that was slooow. I hope the new X100F is useable. I had young kids when the X100 came out and it just coudn't cut the mustard, I moved to m4/3 until the X-T1 came out. You did feel slightly special when using it and it was always commented on by non photographic folks who liked the look of it!

evogt500: Kinda pricy for a 50/2.

That's the way Fujifilm like to roll! It does have WR which cheapo plastic 50mm's don't.

On article Ultimate OM-D: Olympus E-M1 Mark II Review (1301 comments in total)

I had the original EM-1 and have had pretty much every Olympus 4/3 and m4/3 camera there has been made but I switched to Fuji not because of the quality because the EM-1 got me more 'keepers' due to it's more accurate focussing than my X-T1. It was the plethora of buttons levers and that menu system that hasn't changed since my 4/3 E-1 in 2004! I went back to basics and am enjoying my shutter speed and aperture dials. Great cameras with some great lenses in the system but not for everyone. Horses for courses as they say, don't complain if you have no intention of getting one. It's not a gold plated Leica or rubber coated lens hood for $20,000!

Mmmm, another 'new' Leica product that screams "Mug me, I'm rich".

On article DPReview Asks: What was your first camera? (764 comments in total)

Kodak Instamatic with 126 film in the mid '70's. My first 'proper' camera was my dads hand me down Zenith E, built like a tank and always had problems with the shutter curtain. I can smell it now!

On article Accessory Review: Peak Design Slide Camera Sling strap (148 comments in total)

I love their quick release system and have the sling and the hand strap so can alternate between them. I also have a DSLR and Fuji X100 so can use the straps on it as well. The sling strap is a little stiff and bulky so I take it off when it is not being used, it takes a few seconds and leaves the camera free to whip out unhindered by anything. I have never seen any damage from the metal on the strap.
