    907x/x1d2 sensor readout with adapted lenses? Better than x1d orignal?

    Hi there, I had the x1d 4416 and it was nearly impossible to use adapted lenses ( manual focus, non leaf, eg leica / etc) since the sensor readout was so slow, specially on portraits ir something that resembled moving stuff Has this been improved in the x1dii or 907? Or since its the same...

    907c vs X1dII - autofocus

    Hi there, Pondering between these two cameras - how is the AF on one compared to the other, using XCD lenses ? Is the X1dII focus aquisition faster than the 907 ? Or are they the same? I’m leaning fo rate 907c - it offers what the X1D does AND being able to couple onto a V body - something...

    X2D Thread

    Indeed. Hope that H/Blad continues with the X2D what started in the X1D : a small, very portable, very light camera. Fuji steered away from that with the GFX100 - it is targeting Phase, Hasselblad H and so on. The size ( of the GFX100 ) I suspect its due to the ibis motors and specially due...

    Leica S3

    For me, its sad really. Leica is doing H/Blad path - providing niche cameras, to niche buyers but one day, they will be in some serious trouble. H/Blad did the lunar stupidity over and over and they found themselves at the brink of bankruptcy only to be saved by DJI. Leica deserves better -...

    Leica SL or Fuji GFX 50

    I had both for quite a while ( not at the same time though ) and there are some key differences : Leica SL : surprisingly compact ( viewed from above ) , much more X1D-C ethos of simplicity ( actually, its in line with the S medium format cameras ) but quite tall. AF is very much ok...

    D800E files on old MacPro ?

    I see a lot of those comments on MacPro 2008 users - but isnt that because of the HDD ? My MBP is a 17", 2010 i7 2.7ghz dual core one and I just gave it a breath of life by installling a SSD. Couldnt the same be done on a MP 2010 ? Plus with a current GPU ( lets say a ATI r9 or a GTX680 ? )...

    D800E files on old MacPro ?

    Hi there, I'm not very keen on the new MacPRO : very much video orientated. So I want to replace my aging MacBook PRO 17" ( i7 2.7ghz ) which is moderate for D800E files ( brushes are so so in speed in C1, sliders take 0.5 secs to reflect things.. ) and I'm looking into a MacPro 2010 model ( 8...

    C1 v Lightroom

    Life is funny. I read Jack's initial thread and thought to myself "heck, I want the best quality. I use LR, why I never tried C1 ? Well, REALLY tried C1?". He and Guy Mancuso are really into the C1 PRO. So I downloaded a trial C1 PRO. Bought a new camera ( D800e ) and LR is so-so with its...

    D3x vs D800E - today. I'm thorn

    Well, thank you all that contributed in this thread. Really some insightful opinions here and helped me. In the end, and as much I love the D3x body and feel, I do not love its weight ( heck, I'm a Leica M user :) ) . Found a D800E for a really really nice price and bit the bullet :) Thanks...

    300mm 2.8 AFS vs 300mm F4 AF-s for Safari.. for a Leica user :)

    nonononono... I'm sorry, I perhaps explain myself wrong. The PERCEPTION here in Portugal, is that a 300 F4 is a hobbyist lens. Therefore is much harder to sell 2nd hand - and people who want it, can afford it new. I have nothing against the 300mm F4 AF-S, a superb lens, no question asked...

    300mm 2.8 AFS vs 300mm F4 AF-s for Safari.. for a Leica user :)

    Hi there, Thanks for everyone that chimed in. In the end I just bought ( just now lol ) the 300mm AF-S f2.8. Bigger , much heavier lens but the price was very nice, the condition is next to mint and like someone said to me - at this price, if you resell it after the Safari, you will get 100%...

    D3x vs D800E - today. I'm thorn

    Hi there, I'm quite lost here... I'm about to buy a DSLR and I'm thorn from the D800E and the D3x. Different animals, I know and for different needs. And no, I do not need the extra protection that the D3x provides. However I downloaded several NEF files from both cameras and I find the D800E...

    300mm 2.8 AFS vs 300mm F4 AF-s for Safari.. for a Leica user :)

    Hi there, I would like some help here. Long long time Leica user, I decided to join again on the SLR ranks, the D800e is a mermaid with a strong chant... So my wife and I are going on a Safari in a month ( Tanzania ) and I bought myself the D800e and now.. .for the lens I have two options : -...
