Why? Nikon, Canon, Pentax, Leica and many more. Just start to make a film camera that is a SLR. The market would be to small just to use your glass with this system, I would buy a used what ever before this setup.

I would consider this camera, if also had 75/90mm sister ( brother, if you like ). Besides children 28mm, not so good for portraits.

Nikon has a lens like this for much less. The filters were called "soft nets" by Tiffen. Also Carl Ziess made there "softars". A four element 90mm F4 Elmar, an excellent lens with one of the above filters, whereas the filter cost is a round off, a used, the only come that way would be under two grand and you would still have Leica glass. Knowing Leica this will be a fine lens, but a lens who's price range is for the well to do and maybe not photographers.

Jacob the Photographer: Perhaps DPREVIEW has the leverage to push DxO to include the Fujifilm X series in their DxO-Optics software as well.
To me it is an utter disgrace that these two big-brand international companies : Fujifilm & DxO do not seem to work together. DxO ' s poor excuse is that the Fujifilm X sensor is of a to complicated design.....
It as crazy as saying :
Sorry but your Land Rover 4WD can not be certified to use country roads because we can not verify if the suspension is suitable since it is of such a different design ( It is ) .
DxO get over with it - or loose our confidence !

Agree, the X-Trans is just different RGB pattern. But it works. Fujifilm has take APS-C that goes head to head with Full frame. It lags but short distance away. Pixel peeping and bean counting, bottom line. Fuji images look as good and if not better then anyone. In the days of film it was line pairs. Now it is MPs. Bottom line is the bottom, how does the look and is it a tool that fights you and makes you do it wants. Or is part of you because it is intuitive. They know Fuji has a winner, by the by have they rated the Medium format Fuji?

These why sensor maker should be like the film makers of old. They should not be camera makers. Yes Fujifilm and Kodak had there own cameras, but they sold film to every one. Some enterprising person or company should enter the market of making sensors. How much better for all of us.

The Minolta MD 100mm f/2.5, I wonder if it is like the Nikon 105mm f2.5, as a matter of fact. The window picture you see next to post, was taken with that lens. That is a great lens. For all Nikon users it would fit right on your Nikon camera of today, manual focus and the metering (?).

Are those iris blades made from plastic? Sorry but if they are, a good death for them. I guess junk melts.

It will be the official camera of the White House.

A few rules to follow. The camera being offered. If it just stood alone would you want it, say the desert island scenario. The test is to see if the camera backs the camera in firmware up grades, fixes defects, beyond the warranty and if a new kind of camera, starts creating lens. In other words they back both camera and system, they are not just creating a shinny new object.
A long time ago a camera company, which will remain nameless...Canon stopped making a lens mount on their SLR cameras, then started to make a whole new mount,
it was so different that old lens were like they were from a different make, all your glass unusable with the new cameras. It took Canon a bit of time to recover from that one. Shinny new objects vs old proven and developed systems. Be up to date with a proven system and company. In NO WAY am I saying Canon is untrustworthy company, to contrary, they a very old and trustworthy company.

How is the follow focus, moving away, toward, ect. God there are just a million of these lines. Or use Leica 28mm F8 (F5.6?).

Does it make phone calls, He-He?

Link | Posted on Jul 8, 2017 at 00:34 UTC as 13th comment

Or just sent your 35mm lens at F8.

km25: Not trying to be negative, but Sony, again has to put shutter speed dials and/or LCD windows on the top their camera cameras, the PASM dial only is not enough. This is not a huge deal ! Does this camera have a vertical grip. Sony good technology, not so good execution.

During the Korean War two jet fighters ruled the sky, one a Russian Mig 15 the other US F86. One of the advantages of the F86 was radar aimed guns, with a HUD, a heads up displace.In the windshield you aimed your guns.
The shutter speed dials and the LCD are like that. Nikon, Canon, Leica, Fuji, they all have one form of this. You just look down at the camera and see it is ready to go, sorry all these other manufacturers of cameras are not wrong.

RUcrAZ: Too small, too darn small ! Why don't they come up with something that shatters previous an order of magnitude increase? (We can take it!!!)

800mp and maximum ISO 1200. Better of shouldering film and scanning it in.

Link | Posted on Apr 10, 2017 at 19:31 UTC

100 to 150mp. Even with back light, gold wire and what ever else Sony does, I have the feeling the 50mp will have higher ISO. Also, it better be one great lens in front of the sensor. And the speed of the lens maybe a nice slow F4 micro that can deliver 150mp. Not to mention the price of such glass. You better be make'n money on your images.
or give up owning a car. The normal lens for Fuji in the ads say it can deliver 100mp, but then there is the 150mp. A regular bonfire of bucks.

On article Fujifilm GFX 50S Review: Modern MF (918 comments in total)
In reply to:

d2f: Just me, a rank amateur, I would go old school with a 4x5 or 8x10 view camera to create quality B&W portraits and landscapes images. Yet I can see why a working professional studio/commercial photographer would lean towards GFX. In regards to lenses, my guess is third party adapters will appear allowing MF meduim format lenses to fill the lens gap, assuming auto focus is not as strong requirement for studio and landscape work. If one is shooting a fashion runway event or some other moving subject the current AF lenses may not suffice either. Speaking only for myself, the analog or digital meduim format camera systems are best suited for high end portraiture and landscape subjects that rarely move. For myself, I only use meduim or large format cameras when image quality is paramount thus requiring the camera system is on a rigid tripod with a remote shutter release.

Please try to understand. Large formate cameras in film days alway were slower to use then a 35mm camera. You just stated about 4X5 and 8X10 cameras, will back then they worked poorly at 5 FPS, just kidding. I owned a 4X5 camera, medium format and 35mm cameras. The 4X5 was to big and slow. The 35mm would be able to take-a-picture-anywhere, but with the lowest IQ. The medium format camera where also slow, but portable. I even own an RB6X7 by Mamyia. It produced great images...but used a Hassi for size. Also the viewing of the RB6X7 was an experience of joy untoo it self. Just get camera like the Nikon D5/D500 for super fast. Get a camera like this for shots that take more time to set up. The right tool......
