Mike99999: Looks like an uglified Leica SL. Regardless, it is a very cool product.

It certainly made to take pretty pictures not look pretty

princecody: Is it that much better than the legendary Panasonic Leica 25mm f1.4?

Most likely but certainly much bigger!

I wish they released the successor of the LX100 instead.

Utterlyotter: "In terms of design the F is a gorgeous camera both to gaze at longingly on a table and physically hold and use"

"Of course if you care more about specs and abilities, and less about design, there are more technically capable cameras available for the money."

Ouch..
Makes it sound like the F is a sort of trophy wife ;)

(Lovely cam though, slightly GAS-inducing.)

Or purchase Leicas.

sportyaccordy: All we need is a Fuji body with IBIS and we are set. I would probably leave Sony FE for Fuji if they came out with such a body. 10-24, 23 1.4, 35 1.4 and a tele zoom... I would be set.

Its more likely for Fuji to make primes with OIS.

wed7: This will be my deciding point to switch. Unlike Pentax's 21/3.2 this is fast and WR too. an entry level WR'd X-T20 would be a killer

Triplet, did someboy in Fujifilm ran over your dog?

In reply to:

FLruckas: It is not black and white.
It is grey scale.
If it were black and white it would only produce black and white, not tones of grey.
This is not lithography film.
:-)

If its any consolation for you, the box says "monochrome' not 'black and white.'

MrCentrist: Manual focus only?
There are a lot of similar lenses with affordable prices including all the legacy lenses that work well with mirrorless. We are no longer locked into one lens mount, and sticking with EF mount makes the best sense for Sony users (larger market and more users).
As Lan said, I wonder how large the market actually is for these?

Before embarrasing yourself please read up on cinema lenses. Just search for it online, it is so easy.

LiveFromPhilly: This is cool and all but I really just want them to make a better Instax Wide camera.

Agreed. More instax wide please

On article Canon announces the XC15 4K video camera (152 comments in total)

I guess this mean the first version actually sold enough to make Canon a profit despite of it being panned by critics everywhere.

Carl Mucks: What do you get by giving up one stop? -- Nothing of importance, only more software corrections.

Fuji likes to put their gear on sale regularly. I get my Fuji this way. If one is patent they can probably get this way below SRP.

photofan1986: Cool! Nice lens from Fuji. But am I the only one to find the design...kind of ugly?

I find it looks good with the xpro2. Then again beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

In reply to:

straylightrun: Why can't Fujifilm make this a pancake lens like the Canon 22mm f/2? Is it because they intentionally made it big so as to not cannibalize their x100 line?

If you look at photos of cutouts of the x100 series a chunck of the lens if buried within the body.

Under The Sun: Almost funded this. Good thing I held back the last minute. Kickstarter is such a gamble sometimes.

Theoretically, the person/company that uses Kickstarter does use our money as part of their capital to complete and deliver the finished product so yes we do fund it.

Also who said anything about investing?!!

For those saying the mirrorless will catch up and be the defacto standard against DSLRs. Perhaps the bodies will be better in every way in 5 years but remember it will take more then a couple of years for even a company like Sony to build a lens ecosystem as vast as Canon or Nikon. Plus to match Canikon's support network Sony needs to invest a lot of resources training personel and setting up shop globally. Not an easy thing in this day and age of the shrinking camera market and limited resources. Remember Canikon not only had the advantage of many decades of developing their system but also they were the one that benifited the most during the boom times of the camera industry. I think that mirrorless might eventually get there but it will most likely take longer then we think.

In reply to:

justmeMN: BTW, today Canon announced that they sold 1.5 million interchangeable lens cameras last quarter, and projected sales of 5.5 million interchangeable lens cameras this year.

Since we are talking about sales numbers of cameras. How many interchangeable mirrorless camera units did Sony, Olympus, and Fujifilm sold compaired to Canon again?

ttran88: Gotta love the Sony and mirror less comments in a photo full of Canon gear. The insecurities of DSLR shooters are too funny. LoL

I love my xpro2, my GH4, and x100t but the chatter of the mirrorless people in the comments section are like a bunch of ugly dudes looking at a bunch of sexy hot super models and quiping "Meh, I had better."

Deliverator: Clearly, those guys at Getty don't know what their doing. The A6300 or the NX1 can do the job better for a lot less $.

It really though to follow fast moving subjects with an EVF. OVF remains superior for action. Plus battery life and technical support.

Oh Serif please make your future DAM as responsive and intuitive as Aperture.
