Sorry I cannot take this guy seriously .. A simple question why did he buy a GX7 in the first place ?

Good point Gerry. So do you perceive or did you see something unique in the many X trans photos you must have looked at before you purchased? Trying to figure out here if it's possible for there to be something pleasing and unique about the way Fuji X trans shows it colors or rendering possibly because of it's electronics and such.

Sure, it has it's characteristics, same as any other filter, array, processor combination. That's fine if that's all you're talking about.

It's the nonsense about (and I'm paraphrasing because I don't recall your precise language) 'it's OK to gloat when you have the best' or 'those who don't think it's the best just aren't artistic enough to see the differences' or just generally dissing everything that's NOT x-trans. X-trans is great. It's wonderful. So are several other sensor/array/processor combinations.

For some X-trans is the reason they got into Fuji gear, for others it's ONE reason among several, for other's it was DESPITE x-trans, and for still others it was reason enough NOT to go with Fuji. I love Fuji and I'm fine with x-trans, but I don't hold it above it's competitors - to me what makes Fuji REALLY special are the handling of the bodies and the great prime lenses. I also love their jpeg processing but I rarely shoot jpeg, so I hope Adobe gets it right when they add those film emulation profiles to Lightroom - I'd LOVE that...
