bigdaddave: I cannot believe the 'Cons' section doesn't mention the elephant in the room - IT ONLY HAS ONE FOCAL LENGTH

In the days when even a compact camera the size of a pack of cigs has a reasonable zoom this 1950's throwback might appeal to the well-heeled but as an actual tool it's far far too limited

But DP love Fuji so they've overlooked the obvious again

For heavens sake I'm not saying it isn't a good camera, I'm saying it's very limited in it's abilities and DP should have pointed that out instead of all the fanboy stuff

How sycophantic you are. At least just admit the camera is limited by it's lens, because it is

Is it any good for:
Head & shoulder portraits - No
Interiors - No
Sports - No
Landscapes - Not really
Macro - No
Studio - No

It's good for street and candids, that's it

You just don't get it. If I choose to go and shoot with one prime on my dslr I can, but then I can choose a different lens the next day, with this you simply can't. That's it, one lens must fit all.

DP reviews are 99% either zoom or interchangeable lens cameras yet this massive fact isn't mentioned as a possible limitation when it's the biggest limitation of all

It's an utterly terrible camera, unless yo happen to want that focal length and by far the most limited camera in it's price range for that very reason. It's a niche camera, nothing more

This is a I'm sure a good camera, IF you want that focal length, to simply ignore that massive limitation isn't a fair review

On Opinion: Canon EOS 750D and 760D article (318 comments in total)

"As far as I can remember though, Canon has never offered us two cameras with the same sensor and asked us to pay more for one, to get some extra features before"

You mean apart from the 550D, 600D, 650D, 60D and 7D ?

On Mystical - Enchanted Valley in the Mystical challenge (32 comments in total)

Beautiful shot, really is. And taken on a Canon with it's supposedly poor image quality
But it's not quite as simple as that is it? Why is there a highlight on the far hills if there's only one moon and it's facing the other way? The shadows aren't where they should be.

On Opinion: The myth of the upgrade path article (1454 comments in total)

'crop' dslr's exist because back in the early 2000's full frame sensors were very expensive to produce so camera manufacturers invented a new format the same way they did with 110 and half-frame 35mm film.

Lenses are lenses and cameras are cameras. Buy what suits you best.

Many a great photo was taken on a 'crop' camera. It's just another photographic format.

More fool the idiot who paid the money. One born every miunte, you just need to know how to find them.

Once again an Emperors-new-clothes camera from Leica.

Pretends to do all sorts of special things but is in reality an expensive, mediocre offering.
