I played a bit with this image. The elements are incredible. Back in the day when I was doing retouching for high-end clients, I'd get assignments to rearrange a picture. I hope I haven't overstepped. If this were a photo journalism picture it would be sinful. Advertising and certain types of fine art photography allow poetic license.  I respect street photography, and I appreciate the amount of practice it takes to be good at it.

What I've done to your picture is different from your intention. I just wanted to demonstrate how malleable photography has become. I think it's wise that Reuters now only accepts jpgs straight from the camera with all exif data intact.

I don't think my interpretation is better than your original. It's just different.

Don't think you need A7RII, just A7II, at 24mp is plenty.

Anything with an aps-c sensor is not big enough to make a noticeable difference to what you can squeeze out of micro four thirds and A7R is not necessary unless you want to print big or be able to crop. What I find very useful about the A7II apart from the FF sensor is the in-built stabilization and being able to use whatever Canon lenses I want with good results via the Metabones adapter... what more would you want (apart from large format film or a 100MB MFDB that as you already know both come with their own limitations as well as advantages.

Bernard,

I own the 56 1.2 "regular" lens.  Love it.  I used to own a Sony APD lens, and didn't see "that much value."

Here's an interested and fairly comprehensive review of the 56, and APD version.

I guess that it could be at least as good as the image shown in live view on the IQ3-100 screen. The limiting factor doesn't appear to be the EVF itself, it is more the ability of the sensor to stream in high enough resolution/high enough frame per sec.

cheers,
Bernard
It's able to stream a pretty decent looking image to Capture Pilot relative to what you see on the rear LCD in Live View, at least to my eyes, so I have higher hopes for the EVF quality than merely what you see on the rear screen.

I believe an EVF finder for P1 if it can be done would be fantastic.  It really needs to be the same quality as the Leica SL though for me to really get excited.

I'm attracted to the X-T2 for the control layout, dual card slots, solid native prime lens selection, and reasonable price. I'll have to confirm how well the control layout works for me by renting, and see if it's any less fiddly to use than my Olympus.

The X-T2 is very tempting for me also for the following reasons:
- Excellent set of lenses, in particular the 90mm, 56mm and 16mm,
- Best implementation of EVF manual focus help, with a small zoom screen to the right showing the 100% zoom while keeping the full image view in the left part of the screen,
- Nice UI designed by people who seem to understand photography (which is not something I feel when I use the Sony a7, however excellent they are technically)

However I am not sure it makes sense for me at this point in time to add complexity to my camera line up by adding Fuji on top of my Nikon that have been delivering day in day out. Replacement isn't an option since Fuji doesn't have the lens line up to cover some of things I do with my Nikons and I need FF in terms of resolution and high ISO noise levels.

So, however temping the Fuji is, I'll probably keep it at wet dream level for now. ;)

Cheers,
Bernard

Good to see you here, Bernard, still active!

That Voigtlander does look good, and second hand is within reach financially. Seems like it's discontinued, and unfortunately it hasn't appeared once on eBay in the EU in the last months, so would be a long shot to acquire.

Yep, posting a lot less than I used to, but still around. ;)

The Voigtlander 125mm are pretty easy to find in mint condition in Japan since they were a Cosina product (the same company producing the Otus for Zeiss btw). The one below maybe not the best mount, but this store in Tokyo is one of the best (I bought mine from them as well as quite a few high ticket items):

I just solved the System Level. Apple had changed the Profiles folder permissions along the way. At least that was easy.

Ah yes - I remember now. :-)

Thanks for the reminder. These companies just sneak stuff into their upgrades, and go figure where to know about it. What a minefield.

Hi All,
I posted this message on DPreview 3wks ago and received no answers, so thought I would try here too. Apologies if you have seen this twice:

I have been using Digital Image Mover (DIM) for quite some time to rename my image files to something meaningful in terms of date and time taken and putting them in folders based on year and month. It is brilliant. However, some time ago I made the mistake of converting huge numbers of RAW files into DNG files using Adobe DNG Converter. BIG MISTAKE. Even bigger mistake to delete all the original RAW files. Subsequently, when I went to rename and move the DNG files I discovered that DIM (versions 4 and 5) will not read the metadata correctly of DNG files and consequently names the file using the Date modified (a file attribute rather than metadata which applies to when the DNG file was created) rather than the original Date Image Captured (which is there and is readable by some but not all programs).  I have now ceased converting to DNG but still have huge numbers of files which I either need to have renamed and sorted to "by month" folders by something other than DIM, OR I need a program which CAN read the Date Image Captured and change the Date Modified to match this (then I can use DIM which will work on the new Date Modified). With such a large number of files, it would need to batch process.  Any suggestions?...please..

Incidentally I cannot fault DIM for anything except these files - it is free and brilliant and the maker has done his very best to sort my issue but no luck so far.
