No, he adores the X1D. He hates the GFX though, so he may have mentioned it there.



May be X1D touch screen is sun block resistant. It was a bit tiresome reading about his complaining of touchscreen and his sun block regarding D850. If he love X1D, how could he ever gotten around the touch screen since without it, he could not do most of the things with that camera (granted I only had limited exposure playing with it before deciding to go with GFX).

PS the only Zeiss lens that I have that has hard stop infinity is my 15/2.8 (version before Milvus) and focusing at a building about 2-3 km away, sharpest focus was at just a tad before the hard stop infinity mark. My Otus 28/1.4, 85/1.4, 135/2 also all achieved focus at the same building at just a touch before infinity mark. None went beyond infinity mark at all. So hopefully the problem that he discovered is not wide spread. I think one person on dpreview reported something similar.

Maybe his little mind is getting mixed up between Sunblock and K-Y Jelly

I'm having trouble believing he didn't know this was a one-off problem (and I think we'd already be hearing if it wasn't). It's not to my taste to publicly blast people about problems before you've given them the chance to fix them (or explain to you what you're overlooking, in some cases); I wish Mr Chambers did less of that.

But yeah, there's no way this camera should've passed QC.

Except...how did the owner not notice he had a camera that couldn't infinity focus?

I've read that extra space is there because certain optical layouts can be impacted enough by extreme temperatures

Lloyd hates the GFX because the lenses have different filter sizes (gasp!), and because the camera is "only" rated down to -10ļC so it's useless for shooting outdoors in winter (conveniently forgetting that the X1D has the same low temperature rating, and virtually all other cameras are only rated down to 0ļC).

After two weeks I imagine a lot of people are feeling a lot of pressure to be the first one to find something wrong with the darned thing

I find this to be a very strange choice of words:

"...violent disagreement.."

He uses the word "violent" several times in describing the issue.

I used to like his reviews, and subscribed for a few years, but something changed and he started ranting about the most insignificant issues (many of which sounded like they were just a case of him not RTFM). It' a shame, because he used to be one of the few reliable unbiased sources of information.

Lloyd posted an update, now says the issue is that the image sensor is misaligned.

Makes more sense than a flange distance error (same result)... and easily correctable I would think.

I thought I saw that he already ranted against touch screen in his d850 post. His main complain was that touch screen and sunblock does not mix and he needed his sunblock. Hmmm...he could access any function on the camera without touching touch screen so why was he so upset. I don't read his post much but wonder if he complained about the same thing on X1D?

WOW !!! A touch screen on the D850. Does it work for left handed people like me?

Based on past experience, everyone who owns a D850 will say this is clickbait for a bit. Then a year later there will be a worldwide recall. Let's hope this time it doesn't turn out that way and there really is no problem.
