"Smart" way to keep businessmen away from USA.

Peiasdf: I am going to guess NYTimes have updated its article because DPReview's article is a baseless clickbait.

The first two paragraphs from NYTimes:
WASHINGTON — Intelligence showing that the Islamic State is developing a bomb hidden in portable electronics spurred the United States and Britain on Tuesday to bar passengers from airports in a total of 10 Muslim-majority countries from carrying laptop computers, iPads and other devices larger than a cellphone aboard direct inbound flights, two senior American counterterrorism officials said.

Two additional American officials said the explosives were designed to be hidden in laptop batteries. All four spoke on condition of anonymity as they were not authorized to publicly discuss the sensitive information.

You can build an army with incredible weapons in US, just from a supermarket. Why would these guys bother to store tiny bombs in tiny laptop batteries?

GIALLO63: I've got this camera a week ago, and it's the third X100 in my set during last years (before 100 and 100T).
It's a real upgrade from the previous models, and a perfect stand alone camera for street and people - candid shot, when my shoulders are tired for 2 Canon 5Ds bodies and 4-5 L Canon lenses in my bag.
Excuse my bad english, please

Giallo63, what I mean is: They are totally different cameras and styles. Why do you even compare several lenses and 2 5Ds bodies to X100F, I'm not clear.
It's like driving a Hummer and saying "Toyota Prius is lighter and more agile". Yes it is, and that's what it's supposed to be anyway.

fotomotovfr, what kind of a pocket do you have to keep X100F? And GIALLO63
was talking about weight. X100F is a fixed-lens camera, of course it will be heavier than a FF DSLR camera with 4-5 lenses. BUT a pancake lens or a fixed lens would diminish the disadvantage of the FF camera when it comes to WEIGHT.

5Ds + 40mm f2.8, or 35mm f2.0 IS? That would not be too heavy.

I went to Hasselblad's site, looked at more of her photos, and watched the video to understand the reason "why".
Still thinking...
She has a specific style, for sure. See this link for some more photos and some more biography: https://www.guggenheim.org/artwork/artist/rineke-dijkstra
I think I am too much of an engineer as I cannot see the "beauty", or maybe I shouldn't even be looking for beauty at all.

No, they pay even more than 79%

Mariano Pacifico: Aha! Ha! Ha! No wonder big cameras are losing out to cellphonecams because cellcams got better technology that DSLRs, 4/3rds, APS-Cs and those 1-inchers. For $750 cellcams you get:
1. slow mo
2. 4k display
3. Front and back lenses
4. 960 fps
5. Geotags
6. Pay my credit cards
7. text my Mom
8. Check my trust accounts
9. 5-axis stabilization
10. 50 auto-focus points

All pocketable .... and, oh, don't forget it is splash proof and shock-resistant ... wheeew ! Oh, it tells me what streets to take and tell me the weather and traffic .... and it talks to me, too !!!

12. Sh.tty image quality (maybe good enough for phone screen or small size prints only, if you take at base ISO).
Cameras lose only because they iterate and iterate and iterate and iterate, without giving the young users what they need (i.e. real and continuous connectivity). The existing communication systems in cameras suck big time.

kwa_photo: "The Porsche Design Book One is a MacBook Pro competitor in a convertible form factor" Not competition at all if it only runs Windows/Linux. For me, it's the OS, the OS and then the OS. I'm just happy that I love the Apple devices as well. It's all about Mac OS, iOS, etc.

Then this is not for you, I get it.

WilliamJ: A faster computer will be a Ferrari designed one.
The Volvo designed machine will be "made like a tank" (endorsed by Luke Cage).
The Toyota-Prius designed laptop will be an "hybrid", whatever it means for a computer.

And the cheapo one will be designed by... Tata motors, obviously !

Cheap cars by Tata, you mean Jaguar and Land Rover?

Looking at pictures, this lens is a beast. There is CA in the corners but it's very thin and easy to clean. At f2.8, the corners are so good that you think this is some 35mm lens. Resolving 5DSr's sensor across the frame at f2.8 at 14mm is no small feat.
Really really good, well worth the "Art" title.

So the "cheaper" model will be 700$? Hmmm...

newe: Used to be a lot of Sigma bashing in the past here. I always loved their stuff. Nice to see people coming around and using their gear.

Well, they deserved to be bashed sometimes :)

That's one thing Nikon does best: Lenses.
But marketing and strategy, not so good...

So kill the DL's but keep the sh..tty GoPro clones? Really Nikon, is this the best you can "decide"?
