What fun. Just think how much fun these guys would have filming a thermonuclear detention, or maybe I should not give these two any ideas.

On article Elevating X-Trans? Fujifilm X-T2 First Impressions Review (1224 comments in total)
In reply to:

SkipCycle: So I can save over $750 by buying an X-T1 with the kit lens if I go with an import right now. For someone who wants to step up to a serious enthusiast camera, is this a no brainer? I'm really looking for bang for the buck. Does anyone think the price will go much lower if I wait? I'm currently using an Olympus XZ-2 but definitely ready to move to something significantly better. Thanks in advance for your thoughts.

I just bought the XT-2, with grip. I will more then likely keep my old XT-1 as a second body.

Well, I went to the "Nittoh", the names for lens company did look like the names either on my Nikon lens or instruction books of 1960s Nikon lens. Good cameral for the people who use such cameras. Too big and bulky for me, but glade to see old names staying in the race.

Guidenet: Yeah, dump the typical DSLR for a Nikon DF or Fuji XPro2 et al. I can wear it with my Faux Giorgio Armani Hong Kong suit and a Bolex wrist watch and really impress the ladies. Hubba hubba! What you wear is more important than the photographs you make. Give me that retro look.

The watch is a Rolex, Bolex was a movie camera.The Fuji is a fine camera, with great lens.If you do not like camera OK, but the camera is not a joke, it is a fine piece of photographic tool. With use and purpose. Life you should get.

The Nikon 105mm f2.5, that was a very sharp lens. This lens looks to be well make, at least in performance. I had a Leica R8 and there 100mm 2.8 micro. I had a picture very close to one you have here. I feel as if the Leica lens was sharper and had better out of focus the this lens, but not a great deal. seems like a nice lens. But so may companies are producing good lens now a days

km25: Digital maybe able come to rescue, a small sensor , maybe one inch. It would be a camera, to make a picture of a forcing screen. It would be in a light tight box. This would give the photographer a good idea of what they are working with.

You be getting a a small dig camera to make like image off a forcing screen, it would working being at "B" then you take your image. It be cal. to give you image and exposure of film, buy worki with the system to cal..it. English enough. You get or no.

Well just think of it this way. Camera $1,800.00 and good lens, say even a $1,000.00, few hundred for stuff and hey you can a camera with up there MPs and keep what you have. If the camera get even medium review, Pentax may sell a car load of them.

arhmatic: I like your subtitle "retro slick"

I am still amazed how many people deny the importance of good design "because we are pros and because we need good ergonomics" or "this is a tool, not a fashion statement".

Industrial design does matter.
Well done Fuji, well done Leica.

I have owned the X-Pro 1, I have the XT-! and following Fuji lens,
14mm, 23mm, 56mm. The two items I have sold is the X-Pro 1 and the 60mm. Sorry you are wrong. Go count some Megie Pixels.

The Leica cameras may look better, the lens, the difference is much less. With this new sensor, the real category that Fuji has with Leica is Lens quality. Here, Fuji takes no back seat.
Fuji help bring the mirrorless cameras to the for front.The Fuji will be the best mirrorless. I feel as if the true nature of mirrorless and it biggest advantage is size. The APS-C may well be the best use of mirrorless as a format.

Yes, but if money is short super 8. Super 8, 16mm, Super 16, 35mm or Panavision. It is matter of money.

Leica look like a bargain now. Still the Sony crowed will still say the A7r11 will take better pictures, even if Sony does make the sensor. Best be making a living with this baby, a working person's camera. Schneider Kreuznach 80mm LS lens. I really want to laugh when all the experts out there, ask who is Schneider Kreuznach...do they make good lens? They can not make as good a lens as CZ. The people in the know. Know they are some of finest lens you can buy, Xenar, Super Angular and even Compenon ( spell does not count ). I would just like to hold one and take a few shots with it. Echoes of past, when fine cameras were like fine watches.

Good stuff. It does not need to be 100MP and every thing pops out at you, like the land scape of OZ.

On article Sony Alpha 7R II Review (2159 comments in total)

The sensor is excellent. The camera not very good. If you go to operate a Nikon or Canon, the controls and information is up front. Sony needs to stop coming out with the same old body each time. They need to create a camera to par with the sensor. They have an excellent point and shoot. The RX100 IV, it operates nearly the same as the A7 series. I do not want a great point and shoot.....I want a camera. Bottom line excellent images, poor camera.

km25: This looks like a great sensor for Fuji. For APS-C this an excellent sensor. The NX cameras seem very nice, but this sensor would be killer in a Fuji XT-2 or Pro 2. Even without Trans -X.
Fuji make a deal with Samsung!

That I can not tell you.That part of photography still belongs to the DSLRs.

You can keep the video, I personally do not need it. You can put two batteries into the XT-1. I would rather over pay bit for camera with the controls al a Fuji or any close to. All most forgot the the real good EVF.
