Mateus1: It looks X-A3 has't sensor from X-Pro2/X-T2, but from old Next-7 (or A6000) which was not that bad, but it does not share same X-Pro2 procesor... but got Adobe JPG space & Across film simulation, same Bayer CFA, which iare great... but unfortunatelly no PDAF.

But... if Fuji would brought at least external EVF, I would buy it as my Fuji landscape camera.

I think Fuji and Olympus have the best jpgs so either is are excellent choices to go jpg only (or mostly). I shoot more jpg with Fuji (almost four years) than I ever did with Nikon (eight years)

Terry, yes, I shoot Fuji but only the 24mp models have Acros. The film simulation options are tied in with the Processor generation so Acros will only be on bodies with the latest,fastest processor. The same is true for the scond genration processors with Classic Chrome. CC is not available on the first generation of camera/processors like the Pro1 and XE1 - which is what i have.

No Acros film simulation on this model.

Iridient, PhotoNinja (which i use), DxO.... The list goes on for photoshop alternatives.

For a list of all viable alternatives simply look at the comments for this article 👍

The true poster boy for GAS.

As a side note, I can probably net about $15 for my Fuji XE1 on ebay but now I would rather sell it to this guy to add to his collection

Seems the only thing this article brings to light (pun intended) is that the system has found another way to slap a label on people for the big brother agenda.

Wonderful portrait. It really makes my wonder what he is thinking when he looked at your camera. There seems to be a sense of boredom and sadness in his eyes.

In reply to:

quietrich: For anyone thinking that 16mp isn't enough for them: I've just printed a C-Type from a 16mp file at 36x24 inches, and it's beautiful. It's enough to print a double-page spread in a magazine, or an A1 poster. Much of my print portfolio consists of A3 prints from 5mp files - though they were produced by the excellent Foveon sensor. I worked for many years with the Canon 1Ds series of cameras with the same resolution. At a time when Nikon and Canon flagships are currently 20mp, calling 16mp low resolution doesn't make sense.

Agree 100%. Other than making humongus prints (which will be viewed extremely close) or needing heavy cropping from using the wrong FL, 16mp is plenty for 95% of us. I stopped craving for more pixels after getting my 12mp Nikon D300. I have been using my 16mp Fuji XE1 for almost 4 years and never needed more pixels. Of course 4 or 5 years ago 16mp was considered the sweet spot for APS, now they say it is 24mp, in a few years they will say the old line "24mp sensor is getting long in the tooth". When will this madnessor more is better end 😈

On article Sony a7R II versus a7 II: Eight key differences (397 comments in total)
In reply to:

D200_4me: What they need to do is create a 24MP version of the A7R II and then I'd be more interested. I don't need/want 42MP and I don't want the lesser performance of the existing sensor in the A7 II.

Agreed!!! Well stated.

falconeyes: I wonder if US citizens are aware of how ridiculous their legal system now looks to other parts of the world?

In my mother tongue, the idea of a "state of justice" is so important that the corresponding term "Rechtsstaat" became a part of other languages too (cf. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rechtsstaat ).

It is a corner stone of democracy and it is quite obviously (to people living abroad at least) broken in the US.

Especially in our times of competing civilizations (West vs. Arabic vs. East), the broken legal system of the US causes tremenduous damage to all of us.

Well, i am a US citizen and I am painfully aware that everything is upside down and deeply twisted. What brings a tear to my eye is that i suspect it will only get worse, and not just in the US

lambert4: I have never been dissappointed by a Samyang, Rokinon etc. currently loving the 10mm f/2.8, and the ever venerable 85mm f/1.4 are so easilly controlled and optically beyond any value available as long as you are okay with MF.

I have their fisheye lens and it is a superb. MF at wide angles is a breeze, but it gets vey tricky at the long end.

On article Nikon D500 versus D750: Which one is right for you? (369 comments in total)

Nikon D750 vs Pentax K1? More apples and apples comparison than D500.

Both FF bodies about the same price but for my money I would incline towards the Pentax - more bang for the buck.

Al Valentino: I would rather wait to see test of the finished, tweaked, product before judging. These type of reviews of unfinished products tend to create a bias of the good and bad.

K10D,

I didn't watch so I couldn't judge the preliminary version, unlike your judging me.
