NatuRaOx2: I'm a Nikon dslr user at the moment. I'm hoping Nikon comes out with a full frame mirrorless f-mount camera this year. That being said I'm a huge fan of Fuji . My plans are to move to Fuji for my professional camera needs. I'm waiting for the next generation of the X-T2 so I guess it'll be an X-T3. I know they will have at autofocus dialed in where it'll Smoke the DSLRs and should have a 300mm f/2 wr sports lens by then.
Then after that the GFX will be getting updated and I'm guessing the next version of it will be a freek camera that acts like a Nikon d810 with much better resolution , color rendering, everything. Cameras are going to change big time in the next 4 to 5 years. Fuji is pushing the envelope and listening to the photographers and not making their own agenda. They remind me of President Donald Trump, kicking ass and listening to the needs of the people . Canon and Nikon have just tried to control what you get by what they want you to have .

You guys haven't realize he just trolled Fuji users and liberals have you? You should have picked it up when he say Fuji kicks Nikon ass in AF and something about a 300mm f/2.0 lens.

Calvin Chann: It won't change many opinions at the current pricing levels. If they had a machine and lens ready to go at, say, $8,000 then maybe. Bear in mind that at those levels of resolution, file sizes will also be significantly larger bring into question the processing power and storage on your computer.

@Teila Day
4GB or 4TB drive? I don't think you can keep much on a 4GB thumb drive.

Peiasdf: This is so cool. Human are too expensive and according to m4/3 users, too easily injured by repeated motion with a heavy camera. Replace three staff photographers with a photobot and a freelance "supervisor" would save the company tens of thousands a year.

The Fujifilm-like "Kaizen" philosophy will ensure the photobot is constantly improved by crowd-sourced neuron-network AI to take better and more artistic photos.

You must haven't heard computer can write books now. It is only a matter of time.

Josh Leavitt: It's interesting to hear the executives say that the GFX wouldn't benefit all that much from the X-Trans. But it's certainly in their best interest in the short term to stick with Bayer; using the Bayer CFA will make if much easier for Adobe to add preset/custom color profiles to Lightroom and Photoshop.

There is no benefit to X-trans. It is all marketing talk. The ISO inflation and RAW NR is what give "high-ISO" performance

batmatty: Hello i am Nigerian prince in need of $10,000USD to buy this and lenses please send money direct to my PayPal account. You have supported my a great cause.

Hi, I am a Nigerian police officer and we have captured these two criminals. However, before we can return your money, you need to pay banking transaction and processing fees first.

In reply to:

Alan53: Didn’t Sony open up the E mount protocols/usage free to all a few years back? Wouldn’t be too difficult for Fujifilm to make E mount versions then?
Fairly certain it won’t happen now though.

E-mount is a standard video mount now. Many lenses and adapters are made for it because A7 and FS series cameras have been selling well. With growth of X-mount cameras limited and Fujifilm shift focus to GFX, I wouldn't be surprised if Fuji start making some X lenses in E-mount as not much work needs to be done.

iae aa eia: The 35mm would be better (would make more sense [to me]) if it were a 31 or 32mm, and the 40 were a 43.

You can always spot a Pentax user because they like focal lengths ending in a fraction. Before metrication, 1-11/16 inch, 2-5/32 inch and 2-56/29 inch was the hold trinity of Pentax's lens lineup.

In reply to:

villagranvicent: Since there are more and more e-mount lenses from different brands, would be great to have different e-mount camera bodies too and not only Sony. Some kind of standard for full frame format.

The 40mm looks very promising.

E-mount is becoming a standard like Canon FE and Nikon F was with DSLR. Fuji X and Leica SL are within 1mm of E-mount's flange distance hoping 3rd party lenses for still and video will be available in X and SL-mounts as well.

Mariano Pacifico: Man, Germany has sold out to Japan.
Cosina, a Japanese company, develops Voigtlander ...
Lumix, another Japanese company, produces Leica lenses ...
Sony does Zeiss
Hasselblad acquired by Chinese DJI

... and still no takers of Nikon ...

Japan uses a lot of automation... a lot of automation. Seiko have an entire thing of comparing their automated machined parts to Rolex handmade parts to explain why Grand Seiko can be more complex than Rolex while being cheaper.

IIRC, other Swiss watches at the price point of Grand Seiko use Chinese movement and partially assembled parts and with final assembly done in Switzerland to get the Swiss Made badge.

OMG OMG OMG, think of the XL version and the 11mm lens Kim Kardashian just ordered. They would shut down highways to transport something so big.

Mark Turney: I won't be using this ... for the same reason I won't use the automated kiosks replacing people at McDonalds, Home Depot, etc.

You haven't been to Japan I guess. Automation is what keeps mom-&-pop stores alive because they don't have to hire extra hands at the counter.

On article Throwback Thursday: the Canon EF 24-70mm F2.8L (106 comments in total)
In reply to:

PCPics: Still using mine - bought it very soon after launch. It's been back to Canon once to repair a broken barrel mechanism after being on the back of a motorcycle across the Congo. Nothing wrong with it and at least the hood fastens to the rigid part of the lens, not on the end of the zoom barrel as per the new one - which seem less robust and looks amateurish. Never had a feeling that it was 'unsharp' or needed upgrading. I imagine I will get the MkIII or IV once I've worn this one out.

One more motorcycle ride across the Congo will do it I suppose. It begs the question, did you strap the lens to the back of the bike or what?

In reply to:

bobn2: Not actually 'constant aperture', rather 'constant f-number'. If the aperture was constant, the f-number would change as it zooms. Yup, I know it's pedantry, but it's that kind of misuse of 'aperture' that ends up with people not knowing what 'aperture' means.

Good point. I've never thought of it this way. So as the lens zooms the aperture actually enlarges. Amazing.

Peiasdf: Why is it that 80s' film and 60s and 70s' plastic become hot items but not earlier method of image capturing and audio recording? It cannot possible be film and vinyl technology peaked in 60~80s' nor can be possible be we don't have something better.

The same question people asked the Amish applies to film and vinyl users. Did God tell you to stay specifically within a time period; not earlier or later, even though that you are looking for exists way before and have improved after your time period.

@Michel Aristegui
As a foreigner, I understand your pain and wish people like The Davinator be more forgiving towards non-native Speakers.

To rephrase my question: Why is it that of all image capturing techniques, from daguerreotype in 1839 to present, only the transparent plastic film era of the 80s' and 90s' received such following?

JoeSchmo: Wonderful news! Choice in life is a great thing. I hope film and digital can co-exist happily for many years to come.

Doesn't look like SJW like automobile and horse buggies to exist.

On article Women Photograph is a directory of female photographers (208 comments in total)

Isn't this in violation of the Civil Rights Act of 1964? Gender/sex based exclusion of a class.

What she should have done is a directory of all photographer that wants to be searchable. Location, type of photography and rates should be the only search criteria. Age, sex/gender and race shouldn't be allowed as base for employment.

makofoto: Whatever the price, so worth it to me, as it's turning into my principal camera, since it's always with me. Considering how much I use this device for Facebook, txt'ing, news, schooling/googling besides photography, it's certainly worth it ... when you break it down by time used.

What other activities do you do in addition to connecting with people, obtaining information and follow a hobby? Work, sleep and really connecting with other people.
