On article Throwback Thursday: Fujifilm X100 (119 comments in total)

I like these throwback stories, but I prefer to be thrown back further. It is more fun to see the really early days' digicams. 2010 is just not that far back.

shirazigs: I really don't know why most of DSLR Cameras don't have a good design, a good shape, a sense of innovation. They use same body and model as ten or twenty years ago. Do I like that? As an artist I really hate it. All of these companies should take a look at Hasselblad's cameras to see what's the meaning of product design. I have a question for you. Do you care about the design of your camera?

Not really, I care more about the images I make.

Although this is beyond my price range, I applaud Fuji's effort to innovate.

Those who moan the fact that the sensor is *only* 1.7x the size of FF are missing the point, I think. With this, Fuji has 2 full lines of MILCs: one APC-S and one this. Fuji skipped FF entirely, call it "Super FF" is you wish. It will offer tangible, if not dramatic, benefits over FF and that is a good thing.

In reply to:

Howard: Why so much negativity in the comments? At the end of the day (or their lives), they could say "I've lived once at least." How many of you can say that?

@villagranvicent: fair point, i only read the DPReview article and browsed the photos. Maybe DPReview should be more truthful in their reporting?

These look good if unspectacular. Certainly it looks better than the 18-135 STM copies I've had, but not L quality such as the 24-70 F/4 (we wouldn't expect it to be). Chromatic aberration is present but probably not too severe, and corner sharpness on par with what one would expect from such as lens.

Now, if Canon can only make a fast standard zoom (e.g. 16-50 f/2.8 or 17-55 f/2.8) for the M-mount ...

PanchoVilla: Von-tastic! That's just some good Von-tography! I'm Von-mazed at just how Von-plicated that shoot looks. It must of took some Von-sight to see this through! Von-gratulations! Von-voyage!

If you use one more word like that, I will Von-mit.

(sorry, just to poke some fun, couldn't resist .. no offense and no flame please)

"Plastic is so beautiful, mermaids love it, so let's put more in the ocean!" -- is that the message?

On article Canon EOS M5 real-world sample gallery (240 comments in total)
In reply to:

Howard: I think these samples confirm what I thought about the M5: it is a good, capable, if unspectacular camera. As a photographic tool it will be sufficient for most purposes, and its main selling point is that it stays within the EOS ecosystem (you can interchange accessories with EOS DSLRs, and use EF lenses with a simple adapter which does not require communication protocol translation, etc.).

Purely by specs, the Sony A6500 is literally 2 generations ahead, but, for most EOS users with significant sunken cost in the system, this is a good entry into MILC.

@Stu 5, yes, I bothered. Where did I refer to price and where did I say one is the "answer" to another (and why do they have to answer each other?)?

While they are at it, can they also replace crappy photographers too?

The last thing I want is to have my camera hanging upside down like a dead fish.

All this is moot if they refuse to make a few decent (naive, APS-C E-mount) lenses, especially standard zooms, e.g. the 16-50 f/2.8, or 15-85 f/4.

Ouch, I don't know what to say. As a ping-pong paddle it may well do just fine ...

I think this is a great camera and I applaud Sony's innovation and bold step forward, at so short an interval after the release of the A6300.

However, with just $300 more one can get the FF A7II also with IBIS, I have a hard time justifying the price. I personally would look at the A7II more seriously.
