I'd be happy with a new mount and a quality adapter like everyone else is doing.

Tokina is using their own lens coatings. That's the one things lens manufacturers don't share with each other without you knowing it.

Has a real full-frame mirrorless been rumored anywhere else? I saw the hubrid viewfinder patent which seemed close, but nothing that specific. What do you know!

Not a chance in hell that first sensor comes packaged in anything resembling affordable. Looks like a new sensor for their cinema line to compete with Red. Maybe an FS9?

I ordered mine Tueaday, got here Wednesday =)

I can safely say that Godox is the way forward and Cactus unfortunately lost the plot this summer.

And the ones on Amazon being sold directly from Godox seem to have their stock number decreasing, so maybe they have them. I dont think they can sell them non pre-order unless Amazon has them on hand.

It would have sold like hotcakes if it was a 400w strobe. People buy their strobes how Americans buy their sports cars: hp per dollar.

Their pricepoint was too high for the wattage they offered. All the compactness and add-ons mean nothing if your competitors can offer a similar product for cheaper. It's a shame because I genuinely liked their product, but $525 (at the 25%-off introductory price, mind you) for a 250w strobe was too much no matter which you sliced it. And they probably knew it as soon as their numbers came back from accounting.

Godox AD200 for Pentax by June?

The price might not be as competitive for what for what is a fairly similar product, but this was new ground for Cactus so I'm not surprised their R&D costs were probably much higher and the price was needed in that respect.

I already bought one unfortunately so that specific design is moot, but would definitely be interested from here on out. Thanks, Adam.

Definitely interested in the process. Does Tee Spring charge the campaign manager extra to even offer a premium as an option? I had figured since these were all made-to-order it wouldn't cost you extra.

Also interested in a premium T for our premium camera brand [emoji108]. I work in the basic-wear industry, and that stuff goes a long way with association with quality lot if even subconsciously.

Hopefully that means they come out faster. All things told, 1 year R&D to retail is pretty good. I'll keep an eye out for the wide angle prime. Looking for that 35 [emoji102]

It was the K1 2016 shirt mentioned earlier with the LED under a microscope look. The first time was definitely a more premium shirt that was softer cotton and the blank was other than Hanes. This time, not so much.

Do we have any idea how many of these were sold yet? The last 4 digits of my serial place my lens it in the 2000 range, and I"m wondering where the latest is at. Imagine if Ricoh sells 4000-5000 copies at 1200 = $4.8m to $6m in revenue. Not bad for them.

So I received my 2016 contest shirt in athe mail a few days ago. I remember Tee Spring offering a much more premium cotton shirt that was silk-screened the first time around (ie. 2 years ago) but I was surprised it was a freakin Hanes blank this time around. Time to bust out the bandaids.

Adam, does Tee Spring give you an option to offer a more premium option when setting up this campaigns? Because I'm honestly turned off by buying another $25 shirt that's going to fall apart in about 5 washes.

We're seeinf the exact same thing with the affordable sports car market with companies like Toyota partnering with Subaru and BMW to design the drivetrain for their cars. These things have massive development costs and shrinking markets. Seems like the way forward in the future as minimum expectations ($$$) increase.

I just shot a bridal shower today using the new lens. By far the most performant lens I've ever used. All my previous lenses were manual focus only and it's been amazing seeing such high IQ while locking on every time. Will completely change my approach to shooting events in the future.

Who else here has already done professional work with it?

Got mine this morning. I'm already ready for a 35mm or 28mm version. I think Ricoh should go that route immediately instead of the 85.

B&H Customer Service just told me it would ship today and be here tomorrow. They also refunded me the $26 paid for next morning shipping, which was nice. I still have my doubts.
