Even though the Ricoh GR is arguably the better camera, one thing the Fuji has going for it is better/more appealing OOC color.
gbdz: You need to be a bit lucky to get a shot like this as well.Congratulations.
I don't golf, but I am certain that stationary holes in the ground are exponentially easier to find and target than a spectacular once in a lifetime fleeting moment.
Jimmy jang Boo: Pardon me, but what's the point of a MILC if it still requires big lenses?
And speaking of native (cough) lenses...
And how long and fast are those lenses?

AKH: Wow. Was a bit surprised to see that such an expensive camera doesn't even have a touch screen.
Your comment reminds me of my 83-year-old mother; she is resolutely stuck in the old way of doing things and cannot accept, adapt or appreciate new technology.
Miike Dougherty: If Sony only had squeezed out another 200 mm and made it 24-800, I would have had my pre-order in by now.
Or you could buy a Nikon P900 24-2000. ;-)
Wow, that's great. Sure caught my eye.
Keith Cooper: With a lot of people new to the software I hope this info is of help. I still use them regularly, with Sharpener Pro being a frequent part of my print workflow from small snaps to 3 metre prints. I've written up details of how I use many of the plugins.
Hope it helps?

The third image is a standout, but I find the lens flare distracting.
Seems rather big and heavy for mirrorless
Sony fits better in the pocket.
KameraFever: Though it doesn't have quite the AF as Nikon and Canon, this seems to be a landscape photographers dream. Tiltable LCD for difficult angles, IBIS, pixel shift capture for static subjects, and weather sealing at this price point are insane.
DRP wrote... "we've found performance to be lacking in previous bodies like the K-3. A brief play with a pre-production K-1 and the relatively fast-to-focus 15-30mm F2.8 in a non-test environment indicated that the system, while fairly accurate, was slow at tracking subjects across the frame. The AF points do move to stay on a moving subject, but do so sluggishly, which means it'll be of limited utility with faster moving subjects."
A Landsape Photographers Dream sounds good and nice. For everyone else it may as well be a one trick pony.
There's nothing wrong with that as long as you can live with subpar AF and a very "Limited" lens selection.
ISO 3200 leaves much to be desired. How old is the sensor in this thing?
Marty4650: The camera will be released on April 16, but five people have "already had it" six weeks before release date.
They probably returned it, because it was too heavy for their selfie stick.
And no doubt those were all angry mirrorless fanatics.
The future may well include photos being viewed in a virtual sense, but it will not replace traditional photography anytime soon.
It looks like a PENTAX.
photo perzon: So whoopee doo a silver review. Enough Golds around to bury it.
Speaking of not useful, neither is the designation of an Olympic metal to a camera.
photoaddict: And I remember how people said that there's no way a digital camera can outperform film in just a decade. If it was shot with a digital SLR camera, it would be sharp, clear, and more saturated. Low light? No problem, just boost the EV in RAW processor (especially the Nikon/Sony types).
I am sure glad film is over.
I bet you don'y have a turntable. ;)
