Samuel Jessop: 1. Save money for ages for MacBook Pro.
2. Apple raised prices and took away comfortable keyboard.
3. I now have a Surface Book. The display is great for Lightroom, and the keyboard is even better than the ThinkPad it replaced. I am happy to not be the customer Apple had in mind after all.

Likewise, I went from a MBP to a MacBook 12 inch retina, with no ports and the horrible keyboard that I tried to get used to for few months,not to mention the subpar wifi reception. I sold it and got myself a surface pro after 10 years of apple. No regrets at all and windows 10 and just as enjoyable as apple OS, especially with the touch screen and the detachable screen.

WGChsv: As an Olympus fanboy, even I can admit $2000 is preposterously expensive. However, Olympus is well known for putting their stuff on sale several times a year. You have a pretty decent chance of getting this for around $1700-1800 as early as spring 2017. I got my E-M5 II for $200 off only 9 months after it debuted.

Idefixx, brilliant comment about Steve Huff, he's already writing on his website how he's even dumping his wife and kid for this beauty.

Goo times when an FF camera costs 1700 and a micro43 sells for 2000 in times when all consumer electronics are falling in price.

eliehbk: Pure esthetically it is one hell of an ugly camera.

Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder, a camera has to be good, functional and wouldn't hurt if it looks good as well.

The Xpro2 is in a different league altogether looks wise.
This I would compare more to my PlayStation controller.

sportyaccordy: Easily Fuji's best body yet, but at the end of the day, still no IBIS, still weak RAW file support in the most popular PP software, still really expensive. If they could make an X-A2 follow up with an EVF and DNG output they could have a real mainstream winner.

Agreed each to his own, I do not think the Xpro2 looks like a disposable camera at all. I like that it is discreet, I personally have nothing to prove with a flashy camera.

For you maybe! I would take the Xpro2 anytime of the day over it. Had the Xt1 and didn't like it at all. I guess this one is a bit better but I do not see the need for an ugly hump in the middle.

On article Retro through-and-through: Fujifilm X-Pro2 Review (2499 comments in total)

Best camera I have ever owned and God knows I've owned quite a few. I just came back from 1 month vacation with the camera + 35 f2 and the 18-55mm. It was such a joy to use, very straight forward, no gimmicks and great Jpeg quality and especially colors that I ended up not shooting RAW. Now I am extremely happy that I do not have to spend days on PP.

photomedium: rule no1: buyers of new products always get screwed.

I don't know why you guys complain so much, the camera reset itself once and that was it, it works flawlessly, every 1st generation car has problems, just like everything else, at least Fuji fixes them quickly and then adds some more!!

brownie314: Wow, I didn't believe it at first, but as time goes on, more and more reports seem to verify that Samsung is getting out of the ilc market.

A friend of mine who works for an advertising company and have Samsung as one of their clients assured me that they won't be exiting the ilc market.

R Vaquero: Copying Apple as usual...

I have switched from Apple to Android 5 years ago and last year went back to Apple. Why? because every single Android phone, and I owned 4, slow down and start freezing and having problems after 6 months to a year (note I am not even a heavy user, never do gaming...). Now with Apple, eventhough it is a smaller screen less features, the phone works flawlessly just like their computers. I do not care if Samsung comes out with a phone that will do the dishes or give me a massage, they are all the same, after a year or so same old story!

On article Leica T (Typ 701) First Impressions Review (2257 comments in total)

I bought the Sony Rx1r and love it, but when I read your comments about this camera being overpriced I wonder if there are many cameras that aren't! I wonder if the 2800 dollars price tag on the Sony is justified! Choose the camera that makes you happy and go out and shoot. I have changed many many cameras over the years, and in the end they are all the same, we (photographers) make the difference! Happy shooting...

In reply to:

random78: Does this review including the AF comparison for video mode that was in progress. I quickly skimmed through but didn't see it. Though I might not have looked hard enough

I used the camera for few days, it is not bad but the price is a little bit too much for my taste, I think in this category the Pentax K30 is the best choice, weather sealing, smaller, sturdier and love Pentax pancakes. I ended up buying the Samsung NX20 to complement my omd, I like the fact that it is not tiny but still smaller than a dslr and image quality is great. In the end any camera that you're gonna buy and enjoy using is the best one...
