Conrad567: Holy magenta BATMAN! Is this from the native lens, or is it caused by the adapter, or is someone in desperate need of training so that they can set the proper white balance on that camera? Either way, if this is a sample image in hopes of selling a product, someone needs to do a better job.

@ MyReality Click on the image to see the larger version, you will see what I am talking about.

brycesteiner: >>The employee claims the UK crew was told they would have to continue working because they are bound by contract.<<

Contracts are only valid if both parties are following through. One party cannot have the say if they are not following through. It seems the employees are the ones that have followed through but the company, even though it has breeched, is still wanting to be in control.

EXACTLY! Thank You!

The contract requires TWO PARTS. Their work is traded for pay. No PAY, NO CONTRACT. This is basic business law.

Rajeshb: I did the mistake of visiting her facebook page. It's mind boggling how could anyone make a career out of that content

Sactojim, there are plenty of my images right here on DPreview. Look all you want. My point was that I did not care for the web building. The colors to me look low resolution as do the images. Could be she is using an older or inexpensive camera, or that her web building needs help. To the larger point, this is my opinion. If you like her work, then you can feel free to hire her. Doesn't matter what she charges, if someone sees her work and agrees to a price, they owe her the money. Sorry you are so offended by my opinion.

She either shoots with low end equipment, or she is in dire need of some professional web building help. The images look pretty bad. Colors are abysmal. But her compositions aren't too bad. The real issue here is that if you have seen her style of work, and she performs in a regular manner, consistent with her normal style and quality, then the customer owes her the money. Regardless of my or your opinion.

Anyblunder: I'm happy for the photographer, though she doesn't get her career back. I'm also very glad that I don't do weddings.

I am a mediocre photographer at best, but I have great equipment and I understand light. Damn it, I get roped into doing at least 2 weddings a year and I don't get paid a dime! I hate it, and wish people would stop harassing me. The stress of shooting weddings is unparallelled, and I am not getting paid a single cent. I hate shooting weddings. HATE IT!

Yep...if all you want is foggy low res images, then this is the lens for you.

What the heck does this have to do with Trump? Good grief, get over it...you lost!

Ummm....you do know that these rules have been in place for decades? Seems you are just whining because the tides have turned and you lefties are losing ground EVERYWHERE!

camtaro: It's a medium format, 51mp, $6,500 camera with a $2,800 lens. So for close to $10,000 why would anyone be surprised that the images are darn good. But can this quality only be achieved with a $10,000 camera/lens? I have seen images as stunning with a full frame DSLR for half the price or less.

PhotoRotterdam, there are a few professionals that shoot with this camera and the XT-2. I googled and found one who shoots weddings. Although they weren't side by side comparisons, he had dozens of samples from both cameras, whilst shooting the same wedding, similar lighting. The appearance of the images were dramatically different. The XT-1 images just lacked the smoothness. I wish I could remember his name, I tried to google it, but can't find the website.

MrScrooge: Twice as heavy, twice as expensive and not even as fast (taking equivalence into consideration) as the Nikon 85mm f/1.4 and even more bulky.
It's heavier even than the 105mm f/1.4 - and I haven't even touched on the cost...

Fuji GFX is a system I really don't understand, such big compromises all for such a meager increase in sensor realestate

Oh good, you understand all of the technical knowledge. You do realize that a lens shooting on a smaller format sensor has to produce more resolution (lines per inch) to achieve similar results? Sometimes there is more to the appearance of the images than just math. I think the results here speak for themselves.

misspiggy01: this is one of the rare cases where bigger is simply better.

all these "i can do this with FF" comments are just silly. if you cant see the difference stick to your phone!

all the gfx galleries have been the ones with the highest technical image quality ever on dpr. its immensley pleasing to look at these images.

and its actally a bargain! only double the price of FF but at least 4 times as good!

These images really do have a silky appearance. I love my XT-1, and my Canon 5d iv, and heaven knows I have taken some fine images with them, but nothing like this camera can.

sobermeier: There is nothing to complain. Damn good camera with an incredible lens. Chapeau..

But the backgrounds in almost all of these are so blurry, it must be that X-Trans sensor that Fuji uses....(yeah, that was sarcasm.) Very silky images, that larger sensor does seem to make a real difference in the overall quality.

RandyPD: Since time began, image and video editing belonged to Apple. Your pictures and videos looks better with Mac than PC, every pro worth their salt knows this. If you want to be a successful pro, use Mac. You go in and show your work in a MacBook Pro, it is already sold.

LOL...spoken like a true sycophant. You have probably never even held a decent PC!

Seems like an awful lot of trouble for what look like pretty poor images.

In reply to:

daddyo: This article is painful for me. I have always been saddened that Tamron chose not to pursue a digital back system for Bronicas. They allowed one of the finest camera brands to die on the vine.
Had they elected to develop a reasonably priced digital back for the GS-1, SQ, and ETRS I would still be shooting with them.
I shot weddings and portraits for years with two GS-1's and it pained me to sell them off for peanuts, rather than simply let them age in my equipment closet. I still wince every time I look at used Bronica lens prices -- superb optics.

Before MF digital backs could be made, let alone inexpensively Bronica was about done. The other problem is that the MF lenses never resolved the LINES of resolution that the 35mm lenses resolved. They just didn't have to because the film area was so large. They just don't stand up the the modern MF lenses.
I had a Hassleblad H3dii 39 for a couple of years. When I used an adapter with the older Zeiss lenses, I was disappointed when comparing to the modern FUJINON lenses. Not even close.

In reply to:

OlyPent: Sigma shouldn't slap an "ART" label on every lens. Keep that for the really good ones and leave the ones people buy because they can't afford the Nikon or Canon equivalent blank.

This lens looked like it did a fine job to me.

Kind of cool that this was done using a method like this rather than simply through animation. But if I am telling the truth, if it wasn't for this article I would have assumed it was animation and all of this work would have been lost on me. I am glad Dpreview did a write up on it.
