  • The 3-4 Metz flashes I have handled recently (modern models) felt incredibly bad. Poor component fitting. Loose door covers. Cheap feeling external materials. High price though.
    If that's the first...

  • Wondering what the battery life will be considering it's a medium format size sensor that is always on.

  • For you who value looks over functionality, my first pick would have been the X100 special edition with tan leather but it wasn't on the comparison...

  • Kinda sad considering it's a Leica, fixed lens, and that the Xpro 1 + 35mm (closest match on the comparison tool) absolutely destroys it.

  • Commented on Canon PowerShot G7 X Review preview

    But what constitutes a 'great product' and a 'successful launch' is also subjective.
    Is the Nikon 1 series or Df successful?
    Is the Canon D10, D20, D30 range successful?

  • Commented on Canon PowerShot G7 X Review preview

    Performance/Value of product is subjective.
    How can you measure it in order to call it a success?
    Perhaps success in your eyes. Maybe not to others.

  • Commented on Canon PowerShot G7 X Review preview

    Naveed, the only measure of Success there is based on what AngryCorgi has said, is by comparing to other cameras that use Sony sensors.
    Canon DSLR sells more than Nikon, Pentax and Sony DSLR and...

    It's such a shame you can't change the battery...
    Seriously though, makes you wonder how they took photos when only 36 could be taken on one roll without having to change something out in the camera..

  • Commented on Canon PowerShot G7 X Review preview

    You are implying they haven't had massive success with their G series, S series and EOS cameras...
    Unless I'm wrong and they have Sony sensors in them too...

  • The front thread would be there mainly for stacking filters.
    Lens caps may still not latch on to the front threads depending on how the lens cap is designed.

  • Only having Impossible Project film to use for it makes it worthless to me, and I suspect many others.

  • Thanks for your acknowledgement and apologies for my harsh comment Richard.
    Was the first line of the article and it obviously struck a chord with me. I can be pedantic about facts sometimes.

  • 'since it created the first 35mm film camera 100 years ago'

    I don't know man, if you're going to write articles up on the internet for a whole bunch of people to see, at least get your facts...

    'In the first few years, neither manufacturer had a real idea where they were going with this.'
    That seems quite disconcerting to me. Considering the 4/3 pro user market was already...

  • So how long has it taken Olympus to make pro lenses for a system that was released in... 2009...??

  • Without negative comments you have nothing to balance the good with the bad, and you will only see biased opinions like that of ThatCamFan.
    Clearly from reading the comments on here one can see...

  • Oh.. I didn't quite know what he meant by 'these kinds of crop lenses'. Assumed he meant standard zooms.
    I guess they don't make them much because most who are serious about it either go full...

  • Fuji 18-55 F/2.8-4
    Canon 17-55 F/2.8
    Nikon 17-55 F/2.8
    Olympus 12-40 f/2.8
    Panasonic 12-35 f/2.8
    Leica 14-50 f/2.8-3.5

  • I read the article, for the second time. And my initial point still stands. She mentions shootings sports a lot. So much so that the lack of audio tagging (which she says is essential for sports)...
