jadawgis732: Fuji Pro1X5.5 (W) x 3.2 (H) x 1.7 (D) in
That's gargantuan? In what alternate reality can a 5 x 3 x 1.5 inch body be considered large?
Wrong on all accounts sir. 5.5 x 3.2 x 1.7, as you so clearly indicate.
Either way the form factor and size feels better in hand (compared to the M and other similar sized RFs). I have an ep2 and it feels awkward at times due to its size. I shot with a hexar rf for a number of years and that felt good in hand. Neither is pocketable so what's the big deal in size comparisons?
Jens_G: 23mm (35 equivalent) should have been launched first, imho.Wish the camera was smaller, cheaper, and had focus peaking - oh wait, that's a NEX 7.
sooo...why don't you just get a NEX 7 and stop trolling?
reading these comments really make me think that most people on here are uninformed about cameras and the only thing that's going on is pixel counting and spec comparisons. do you guys even take photographs or do you just compare camera specs all day?
FF would have been nice, but that would have driven the price up into the high 2k, low 3k range. APS-C makes it more marketable and I don't doubt this thing is going to be on backorder for quite some time. Aside from DOF, APS-C IQ has come a long way and a comparison of my 7d and 5d, the images are almost identical at iso100 even at 800. At higher ISO, yes, IQ becomes more of a problem. That's why you convert to B&W and call it fine art!
with all the mirrorless cameras on the market, the x-pro has one major thing going for it. OPTICAL VIEWFINDER - rather HYBRID VIEWFINDER. takes some getting used to, but it is excellent. way better than looking through the lcd on my ep2. will be selling that and picking this up, for sure.
