Digital Imaging Technician: Whyyyyyy 28mm? This is nothing but a strange focal length for a non-ILC (yes, I'm looking at you too Ricoh GR) that Leica has not historically embraced. If there was a 35mm version I would buy this. Please Leica, it's a dream come true, but 7mm to wide... :-(

My 28mm practically lives on my Canon 5D mKII when I'm out shooting landscapes. I love the focal length and have been waiting for a fixed lens camera like this.

I have the Fuji X100T but almost always wish it was a little wider.

Really... 'bout time. I have 3 Manfrotto tripod (legs) but they all wear Really Right Stuff ball heads with quick release.

The nice thing about RRS heads is that you can get the ball in different sizes. My oldest head is 11 years old and has seen so much use that the yellow bubble level faded to solid white. Still works like a champ.

The specs of the new heads look good, but I'm happy using RRS. Will be nice for new photographers wanting to buy a tripod as a "kit", though.

Sounds like someone is having a slow year and needs more cash. Why did he wait so long?

I finally got to play with the X-E1 at Kaimuki Camera yesterday, and it got me thinking about autofocus speed. If you've only shot DSLR's, it will seem really slow. If you've used traditional rangefinders, the camera is really fast. It's all perspective...

On article Just Posted: Canon EOS 6D In-depth Review (531 comments in total)

I've been using the 6D for 2 months - it's a love / hate relationship. The WI-FI feature is awesome. Been using EOS Remote app on my iPad Mini, and my clients love being able to view shots as we go, untethered.

Hate the AF. The center locks tight, but the other 10 points are pretty much useless for anything other than landscape photography.

Sorry to see Kodak go. +1 to missing Kodachrome.
