TripleCoatedBokeh: E mount is getting flush with lens options. Great time to be a user. Funny to think not so long ago the criticism was that there was only a few options and most were expensive sony manufactured lenses.

Bringing more users into the system who are buying other people’s lenses is not good for Sony. They will eventually be forced to fix it.

entoman: Wouldn't it be nice if Canon and Nikon also made their RF and Z protocols public, allowing third party glass?

I guess it will happen in time, but both brands clearly want to roll out their own lens ranges first. A bad decision IMO, as their cameras would sell in much greater quantities if buyers had the option to use native third party glass.

Kudos to Sony for their decision.

It would be stupid to let others sell lenses they can instead. They make cameras to sell lenses.

Foolish move by Sony they aren't selling their own lenses and reaping the profits. They can't keep this up for long.

This lens is fine on the tiny Sony mount . It will not have any trouble competing with the Sony lenses. But no way it can compete with the much larger Canon and Nikon mount and native lenses.

Very difficult to bring out something the smartphones have been doing better for years now.

Sounds like the cold fusion scandal to good to be true. But let’s hope it is what they say

Deliverator: Hmm. Weren't Fro and the other Youtographers saying that the Z lenses were cheaply built?

Fro is trying hard to give click bait Tony a run for his money

BWfoto: After Nikon and Canon abandoned the mirror. Maybe that will become a Pentax blessing catering to those who want the OVF.

I almost bought one can’t remember what it was called now but it was yellow and took my old 35mm k mount lenses. Kind of a square strange looking camera.

Mortal Lion: Get over the corner thing. That is REALLY only important for people who obsess about corner performance at 1:1. The same people the hate bokeh because they can't see if a lens sucks in the corners. Those people can only look at corners and don't see anything else.

I want corner sharpness when shooting groups or landscapes.

Combined with the amazing build quality of the Z cameras they showed us in that tear down. Nikon buyers are receiving some very nice gear. Bravo Nikon

Jacob the Photographer: Thanks - I am a photographer living next door to Warrumbungle National Park in Central NSW - Australia. It was fully destroyed by bushfire back in 2013. Since then te lack of rain did not help recovery. Added to that the extreme heatwaves and now all surface water in the park is down to ZERO. Wildlife ..... you get it.
I started carting out water into the park but am running out of cash. So have started a fundraiser: https://www.whydonate.nl/fundraiser-details/water-for-australian-wildlife
The Warrumbungle Ranges are spectacular photo country - Australia's first dark Sky Park , World Heritage listed and need our support.
ADMIN : I can provide a series of great photos .

My first post is not deleted and this is what I wrote. “ Australians need to stop setting the country see ablaze.” You are reading way to much between the lines.

Of course there are many natural caused fires. Nobody is saying otherwise and there isn’t much you can do about thst lighting happens wether you want it to or not. But your strange emotional driven need to ignore what humans are doing is kind of scary. That is the one cause you can actively curb. But you need to grow a little and learn to recognize it. Tomorrow is my last day before retirment in Law Enforcement. I don’t fight fires but I can read a damn
Police report.

BWfoto: A real Fuji upgrade would be a full frame XT3. Firmware updates can only take you so far.

Pay attention please the to poor image quality is in reference to the apsc Xtrans sensors compared to the FF Bayor competitors. The Fuji APSC cameras offer less image quality than the FF cameras. You can not argue against that very simple fact. So with Fuji you have two choices less image quality in the smaller format. Or higher cost and less speed in the medium format. Massive compromises either way. FF is the better IQ and performance balance and affordable option. That is what Fuji buyers are missing.

It is true I dare you to compare any Xtrans image to a high resolution FF camera. Take your pick let’s see what you have. Then let’s see what you have that will give you the same performance as a FF shooting sports or wildlife with a Medium format Fuji. Hell pick any old Nikon or Canon from 2005 if you want good luck.
