This review of the X100 blew my mind when I read it the first time, it’s by a guest writer called David Babsky over at stevehuffphoto.com. This review does Steve Huff no favours while it’s on his website, as it’s a terrible piece of writing both in content and form. It’s surprising when David Babsky can’t articulate himself in the manner befitting a teacher. The piece is an insult to Steve Huff’s audience, the quality is just that bad with no journalistic integrity, monkeys must have written and proof read it.
Normally I would just make a comment and move on, but you’ll see later in part two why I didn’t. David’s severe unprofessional negative bias is revealed right away, there’s no attempt at all to be objective or take a constructive critical approach.* It’s clear David just wants to bash a camera he doesn’t want to buy.
I’ve provided a breakdown of the 15 problems in his review with what I think is a fair rebuttal.
Depth of Field
Canon 24-70 L vs Canon 24 f1.4 L vs Sigma 24-70 (Quick note)
All these images are from unedited raw files. They show all these lens depicting as much of the same scene as possible for an accurate as possible comparison. I’ve organised the gallery to show the Sigma lens on one side and the Canon version on the other. At the bottom is the Canon 24mm L images just for comparisons sake.
