Leonp: Here in The Netherlands 1080p compression on 'interactive TV' is awful too, but nobody ever notices. Hardly anybody ever turns their smartphone 90 degrees to view a photo of video fullscreen too. So most young people, never watching TV, think photo's and video's are no bigger than about 2 inches in diagonal. So 8K ......?

I talked to some people in television here in Switzerland. It seems most companies are planning to skip 4k as it's not worth the investment on their side and they knew 8K was coming for the olympics this year (well it seems they were almost right). like you however I see no immediate need for neither 4k nor 8k television. 8k mobile streaming capabilities is what is needed so that our young ones can connect their mobile phones to a 8k miracast screen and watch minecraft pokemon edition youtube videos in 8k.

BelePhotography: Did someone actually manage to open a NEF file in Lightroom mobile. So far I've been unable test this feature as the files won't open (Samsung S7 + Nikon D750/D500)

It is the Android version. So I still need my laptop to get to my raw files. That's pretty pointless.

nikanth: dpreview reviews never talk about rolling shutter effect/jello effect while describing video. :(

Because it is a user error based on misunderstandings. A global shutter is the only real solution. For dslrs set your shutter to 1/50s.

Now all I need is that preordered D500 (delivery date unknown)

akophoto: I agree with alexandros. ND grads are old hat and a waste of money.

Lee are going to see their sales disappear and eventually they will disappear too.

Reasons not to buy...
1:You are essentially shooting through a thick sheet of plastic.
2: They have to be squeeky clean and scratch free.
3: They are a pain to use in the cold
4: You need numerous stops to match sky and foreground and then you need hard and soft edge and now they want to sell you even harder edge grads on top!
5:$$$$£££ wasted. £80 each in the UK!
6. The biggest problem. You have a landscape that reaches into the sky. (top of mountain or in my case the highest church above sea level in the UK, (Google Brentor Church) The church goes black even with the soft edge.. Completely correctable and quickly in Photoshop.

See post above to continue

akophoto - you must be confusing Lee with Cokin or you used the cheap Lee range. Lee makes highquality GLASS filters. I have several 100mm glass filters by Lee. You don't need to ask - they've already ansered: https://leefilters.uservoice.com/knowledgebase/articles/23017-what-is-the-difference-between-resin-polyester

new boyz: I hope, instead of scrapping it, Google turns it into an open source project. If they ever decided to get rid of it.

doubt it - the u-point technology is worth a lot of money to them.

Mike FL: Can DPR ask Sigma why the sensor is very poor in higher ISO?

isn't that apparent in the design of the sensor? if it has 2 layers that the photons need to penetrate, it won't be very light sensitive...

Jonathan F/2: Fuji seems to be a wannabe Olympus and Panasonic. Seems like Fuji just keeps copying all the M43 lenses.

could it be that all photographers regardlless of lensmount require similar lenses. just a thought.

Sony DON´T have a single rangefinder camera.

Done! end of the fight.

(Sony does another type of cameras, so stop comparing xpro with what? )
In the end, at least you should compare Xpro with a Leica.

have to agree with richard, the user expierence that comes with a true rangefinder is not present in fujis. hope it will be one day, but for now a leica m is superior for i.e. manual focus handling in my experience.

DenWil: A "flagship" 24MP crop 35mm ...from the company which stepped up and created a series of medium format rangefinders...why still messing with a crop sensor?

Why no digitally repurposed GW 645? That would have been forward thinking rather than rehashing an old 35mm design for aging hobbyists.

be patient the medium format is comig... ;-)

I have to agree - Fuji has no rangefinders by definition. It has nothing to do with focus by wire. It would involve optical focusing by triangulation and for this purpose a rangefinder camera would have 2 "viewfinders" and often also a 3rd "window" for lightgathering purposes - to make the view brighter so to speak. The only digital rangefinders I know of are Leicas and Epson R-D1. With Fuji we only have electronic verification of focus - be it with a green light in the optical viewfinder or through EVF verification. When working with manual focus this makes a huge difference.

Raist3d: Is the CIPA with OVF or EVF? IF it's with OVF that's pretty low.

Richard - I fully agree that number on paper is disappointing. Question stil remains what real life experience will be.

read some reviews - pre-production users were getting 800 shots out of the battery. I've had the same experience with my X-T1 - it has more mileage in it then CIPA attributes it with.
