    Fuji Is it worth picking up an XE1?

    Yeah, you can get one in the mid-$300's here in the States. One hell of a deal. Kinda like the Panasonic G5 was about 6 months ago for excellent value.

    Fuji Best macro solution for X-T1?

    In the $75-$100 world of macro's, the Konica Hexanon 55mm f3.5 is pretty much the same IQ as the 60mm Fuji and it has the option at least to go 1:1.

    Fuji Another Fuji Full-Frame X camera rumor?

    If they go FF I'm sure there will be some adapter for the the existing APS-C lenses or they could pull a Sony and make the mount compatible (not a really good idea).

    Fuji What do we expect lens prices to do after the April 5th Rebate expiration date?

    I'd be willing to bet we'll see similiar discounts on the lenses with purchase of either a XE-2 or XT-1 before summer or maybe in June at the latest.

    Fuji Have you received your X-T1 and what do you think?

    I received mine yesterday from Vistek (Toronto) with the vertical grip for $1299+$40 shipping CAD. My order was placed with them on 2/18.

    Fuji Zeiss Touit firmware update

    It's absolutely clear to me that both the Zeiss 12mm and Fuji 10-24mm lenses are, in fact, lenses.

    Fuji Zeiss Touit firmware update

    Now, if the 10-24mm can be better at 12mm & f2.8, I'd be nominally impressed. :P

    Fuji Michael Reichmann's (Luminous Landscapes) take on the X-T1

    Reichmann is the guy who doesn't like the GM-1 because it doesn't have an EVF? Mr. Reichmann does speak his mind and has a rather deterministic way to look at hardware. I like it :)

    Amazon (US) is really trying hard to lose my business

    Well, in Amazon's case they really do not make much money....putting the $$ back into the business and trying to take over the world and all. There are so many tax loopholes, either invented by Corporations, or more often, enacted by different legislatures throughout the world that most income...

    Amazon (US) is really trying hard to lose my business

    I buy (and sell) a lot on amazon. They're just like any other corporation, no better or worse, except that I still do not have to pay sales tax in Colorado, though that's not really a big deal. It is easier to sell on amazon than eBay as the platform is much more efficient--no Paypal to deal...

    Fuji Are fuji lenses overpriced?

    I'd love to have a long telephoto (600mm+ eq.) zoom or prime. That would make it impossible to leave Fuji.

    Fuji Are fuji lenses overpriced?

    I think Fuji lenses are extremely overpriced. However I will make arrangements to purchase your lenses at my appropriate market prices.

    Fuji TCSTV X-T1 test with The Camera Store's Chris Niccolls and guest Nick Devlin

    I really like the videos from The Camera Store. It's too bad they don't ship internationally or I'd use them over say Merkle/Vistek/Henrys.

    Show Birds

    Howdee! I took the shot of a bald eagle @ Barr Lake in Colorado with a Sony A7/Canon FD 400mm f4.5 lens. It's a crop, but I was lucky to get pretty close and nice center focus on the eagle. I live in Denver. Mike

    Sony Showcase Sony A7 and 7r Image thread

    After playing with an A7r for a week, I think the bodies are really quite good. Sony does have a habit of making smaller bodies than other manufacturers (considering sensor size), but they really make the best setup (ergonomically) with manual focus. IBIS aside, they're damn nice cameras and to...

    Well as a Denver resident I felt the need to post this snap from about 15 minutes ago given yesterday's event. Taken right outside my front door (Olympus E-PL5/12-40mm). BTW GO SEAHAWKS :)

    How Big Are the Sony FE Lenses Really? a die-hard (sad isn't it) pixel peeper, I'm impressed with the A7r & the Sony/Zeiss FE 35mm f2.8. I've also been walking around with a Konica Hexanon 55mm f3.5 macro and the detail from that is impressive also. However, not quite the same as from the 35mm. I've got a FD(n) 35mm f2...

    Fuji X-F1 @ amazon $199 new and much less used

    Amazon current stock is showing $199 for new Fuji XF-1 in Black, Red and Brown colors. More of interest is the prices (current as of this post) of "Good" and "Very Good" condition used condition Brown X-F1 cameras: $140-$145. No warranty but 30 day easy returns (maybe through January 31st...

    Canon Richard Franiec Grip for Canon EOS M

    The 22mm is an excellent lens. It's the equivalent of the Panasonic 20mm lens for the EOS M system. Unfortunately it looks like the EOS M system may stay rather abbreviated.

    Samsung Samsung NX series questions

    Let me be more specific. The lens works for the 3D stills and video only on the NX300 (not sure about the newer NX Android). It will work like the cheaper, "regular" 45mm on all NX bodies. Apparently, both versions of the lens are optically identical.

    Samsung Samsung NX series questions

    My understanding is the 45mm with 3d capability is only usable on the NX300. I have one coming with the 12-24mm and a NX300 also. The 85mm is a really nice and heavy lens but can be used with one hand if really needed on the NX20. I actually have 2 copies of the 85mm right now (one on the block)...

    Sony Does NEX FF make anyone question the price of the current crop mirrorless?

    The 70-200mm listed is the new f2.8 A mount lens. No price yet on the E Mount F4 version (that I've found anyways). My general take on the stuff: SOS, Sony produces great bodies and not so great lenses. There's not one E Mount lens that blows me away (well maybe the 30/60 Sigmas) and I used...

    Sony A7 and Zeiss 35/2.8 vs Fuji X-E2 and Fuji 23/1.4

    I can't resist here, but the 22mm f2 from Canon is less than $100 and is a great 35mm eq. lens. I know it's not in the same league as an RX1 w/the spectacular Zeiss lens, but it is a very good lens--haven't read anything yet about the Fuji 23mm yet, but I'm sure it's awesome too if as good as...

    Samsung Samsung NX 85mm ƒ/1.4 lens review

    Well, got the 85mm today. Let's just say learning the new system and playing with razor-thin DoF has not won me any composition awards. I have a Sigma (Oly) 75mm coming tomorrow and it will be interesting to compare the two. I know what the 75mm can do, and it's very easy to use with the current...
