    Maybe I need to practice more but the Fuji XF lenses are focus by wire so manually trying to focus with hand on barrel or even with a physical FF control is an exercise in frustration.

    Fingers crossed. It's a bummer when you take your gear to a service place for years and then all of a sudden, it disappears. That happened to me with Sony, had a great place in Burbank for years and...

    I find it depends on context and BG. If I am shooting gimbal and running around following a moving subject, I barely notice it. But get them to stand still to shoot an interview or shoot a talent...

    Focus hunting doesn't affect the stills because the lens will find still focus and you snap your shot. This is a continuous focus AF defect.

    FWIW, I rarely shoot stills with my XT-3 as I usually...

    It is inconsistent, depending on the lenses used. On my EF S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 STM IS, once I zoom past about 70mm focal length, the adapter becomes "confused" and defocuses the lens way into macro...

    X-Mount to PL speed booster?!? Whoa, that's sweet. Would love to see how good the XT-3 can look with a high end Zeiss or Cooke cine zoom.
    I wish they would simply release the EF to X Mount Metabones...

    Everytime I rent a cine lens and shoot with it a few days, going back to the EF S 17-55 f/2.8 IS manual focusing is painful. Even my 1970s Nikon Ais have beautifully smooth cine like focusing with...

    Very good synopsis of the Sony mindset, I agree with it.

    I think if Canon would have introduced a C300 MKIII, that would have been the direct competitor to the FX9 but they didn't, and I agree,...

    Thanks for clarfying this. So basically, Sony and Nikon. As proven with the $2,500.00 back, old habits die hard at Sony. CFexpress would seem to be a better investment if you needed to own a massive...

    Ha, ha, you nailed it!

    It seems the Sony cameras start out cheaper than Canon but the Canons have regular and frequent price drops, which seem to be much rarer with the Sonys.

    I agree with the numbers, the C500 MKII, I feel is priced about $3k too high but Canon always prices their cameras too high on intro so nothing new there. The Sony looks to be a solid deal for sure,...
