eh, still waiting on a couple things:
- gxr body unit with built-in evf (sony nex-7 style).- 35mm-e f/2 lens unit (small, like the 28mm unit or fuji x100, please!)
too bad this zoom doesn't collapse into a smaller package. just waiting to hear someone say IS would have made it larger. finally, i can't really tell from these pics if it has zoom and focus rings, which is odd.
arri120fps: The look reminds me of the Hexar RF.
I don't really see much resemblance. The Hexar RF looks svelte and refined, but the X-Pro1 is a hodge-podge of design touches from a bunch of different cameras:
The viewfinder's outermost edge is from the M9 Titanium.The grip is a blend of the Hasselblad Xpan/Fujifilm TX and Olympus E-P(x).The viewfinder mode lever looks like the self-timer from the Rollei XF 35.The sloping control deck basically comes from the Olympus Pen F.The AF mode switch is like a backwards version of the meter mode switch on the Rolleiflex Hy6.
The lines and contours of the components clash - they don't flow. Such a disappointment!
therickman: It's very boxy. It looks like they designed it in 1998. Has all the features I'd want, but it's ugly as heck.
I'd say more '80s to early '90s. Cameras became rounder in the mid-'90s.
Not my cup of tea, but at least it's clean and organized. Fuji's recent designs look like things have been nudged out of place.
no seals, i take it?
Could you post more samples taken at ISO 800 and 1600 in low light with large apertures, preferably in contrasty light, maybe some areas of shadow, etc.?
another 1 bites the dust.
sorry, could not resist.
if the sensor delivers practical, significant improvements in dynamic range and noise compared to a p&s, i'd be willing to consider it. the price seems a bit high and the lenses seem fairly large for the sensor size, though.
