There's some noticeable CA shot wide open. It's pretty ugly. It'll probably look better shot on an Olympus Pen-F!

MikeF4Black: Same question as for the Pen F: Why would anyone buy this over an X-E2?

More like why would anyone want to buy anything Fuji with their slow as molasses focusing!

Sigma has some of the best engineers when it comes to reverse engineering the AF processing of camera companies. Those Chinese adapter companies are nowhere near their level. Here's hoping they make a Nikon adapter!

Makes me not want to get rid of my D3S. The last solid camera Nikon made!

Canon is a juggernaut in the photo world. The world of photography is a better place with them leading the charge!

The DL 18-50 name really bugs me, why don't they call it the DL Wide or something like that? It's not an 18-50mm lens, but only in equivalency.

Jonathan F/2: Is that a plastic zoom ring on the 12-60? Panasonic too cheap to use rubber? No rubber, no sale for me!

The only metal ring Panasonic I've tried comes on the 12-32mm. That looks plastic just like the 14-140mm f4-5.6 lens. I don't get the aversion to rubber? Plastic is prone to more damage due to bumping and dinging, especially with a huge surface area like a zoom barrel. Rubber serves as both as grip and protective cover for your lens!

Where is the Coolpix A replacement? Why is Nikon is still playing with small sensor cameras?

The question is to get the 30mm 1.4 Art for M43 or E mount?

Sucks being a Nikon shooter with Sigma glass and a Sony A7 series camera.

Camera. Of. The. Year! Pentax/Ricoh is pulling out all the stops! I can't wait to get my hands on this monster of a camera. Time to sell those obsolete Sony A7RII cameras now!

nikonosv: I am a professional fashion photographer and while I use a wider lens such as the 35mm occasionally, I believe this video needs to be taken with a grain of salt when it comes to photographing different types of people with a wider focal length.

Most of the models I photograph, are well proportioned, skinny/fit, have well defined facial features, and will just look good regardless what type of lens I use to photograph them. Likewise the models in this video tend to have fashion-esque features as well.

However, when photographing people that are either heavier set, wider, curvier, etc, I would not recommend using a 35mm or wider unless you really know what you're doing. Simply put, facial features will get exaggerated, meaning wide faces can end up looking chubbier, curvier bodies can end up looking bigger, and just plain unflattering. Short stocky bodies will end up looking even more compressed, etc you get the idea.

Variety is good but always keep the limitations in mind.

Basically good looking people look good regardless. Shooting normal people take actual photography skill to make look good!

I don't know why people think a wide angle is a bad portrait lens? I use a 600mm f/4 to shoot portraits that make those dinky 85mm lenses child's play!

P&S camera of the year! Fuji really delivered a great rival to the Ricoh GR and set a new bar for this camera class!

It should read "street photographer" Eric Kim.

What's the point of mirrorless if the lenses are the same size as DSLR lenses? Sony doesn't even have proper pro-oriented repair facilities like Nikon or Canon. At most these will be expensive toys for the well-heeled, amateur tech geek who likes to match their Sony TV, PlayStation 4 and Sony Alpha camera! Their idea of serious shooting entails sipping Starbucks ordered at the drive thru and shooting urban blandness of generic suburbia!

Jonathan F/2: Beautiful lenses from Sony! No doubt these will be up to the same standards as the Zeiss glass and far ahead of the budget Sigma Art lenses amateur photographers seem to be so fond of.

Sony's collaboration with Zeiss has paid off in spades. These new lenses are state of the art and show just how serious Sony is with photography. They've made the art of picture taking exciting again while pushing the boundaries of cutting edge technology!
