Fox Fisher: it's 2014 and they still make cameras without wi-fi. unbelievable. Canon loves to sit on it's ancient system and count its money. I think they lost their pace to Panasonic, Sony, Fuji, Olympus. These are the companies that are making some exciting products in the last 2 years. On the otherhand Canon & Nikon is all about same stuff a bit polished approach.

I agree. I used to have 40D and 60D with 5-6 lenses but as the years passed on the other manufacturers gained track, started to produce exciting and more appealing products.

I feel sorry that I discovered his blog way too late. Glad to see someone who speaks the truth about Nikon & Canon loudly. I thank him for speaking the truth out loud and wish him a good life.

dpmaxwell: Canon fans seem really active around here lately. Something has them all riled up...

Maxwell, it's because they are used to buy the same camera over and over again with only change being slightly reduced weight.

And careful, they will execute you for criticizing Canon so shhh.

mpgxsvcd: "I hate it" says no one.

Take note Canon. You put out the same camera over and over again with a different name and no one can tell the difference between it and the previous model.

Sony keeps telling us that it is just an updated version of the existing model and everyone can instantly tell how much it has actually improved even though the name hasn't.

Canon and Nikon have nothing that can directly compete with this camera. And no the G1 X MII doesn't compete with it. It's lens is not fast enough. It is too big. And it sensor size really isn't that much bigger.

Ahhh pixel peepers are at work again.... Yeah yeah yeah color issues I get you...

On Fujifilm X-T1 Review preview (611 comments in total)
In reply to:

Scott Eaton: I'm comparing the studio samples of XT-1 -vs- the entry level Canon and Nikon offerings, and would like to know why everybody is raving about the image quality?

Entire swaths of color detail are missing in the XT-1, edges of detailed objects look like they are being over-processed with grain reduction techniques, and the image quality is mushy, non-distinct, and looks synthetic. While the XT-1 does a good job with noise reduction, it looks no different than Nikon / Canon sensors with luminance reduction cranked to some absurd levels in post.

DPR can rave about skin tones all they want. Pretty much all skin tones I'm looking at are identical because of the low color sensitivity of the sensor. What ever attraction this camera has is likely due to the name on the front, or some other intangible nostalgia.

Sniff sniff, I smell some astroturfing.

M DeNero: Another niche model from Sony that is too expensive to generate strong sales and will contribute to Sony's financial problems. They have too many niche products.

Lol, this is one of the sony's best selling cameras of all times.

jkoch2: RX100 II @ $500 = Gold.
RX100 II @ $750 = Silver (or iron pyrite).

Fan: "You cannot put a price on quality," then keels over coughing.

Me: $750 > D3100 + 2-lenses, J1 or V1, G5, NEX6, T4i, or 2.5x LX7.

you are completely missing the point of this camera. besides, who cares if it got gold or silver. the most important mark is the mark on it's user's eyes. if it's doing what it's meant to, then every camera is a "gold" for it's user. try putting on of the cameras you listed in your pocket and you'll understand what this camera is meant for and what it's not.

Why people are obsessed with sensor sizes? If you insist saying that APS-C is always better than m4/3 then Medium Format should be above all... Lets all go buy a medium format then.... as you can see comparing a camera with just a sensor size is irrational. It's all comes down to individual buyers taste and use and the end of the day.

Spec wise it's a great camera. It fills the boxes where Olympus E-P5 left empty. It will be painful to sell my beloved RX100 for this awesome camera with awesome lens selections.

Well, no matter how much pixel peepers or perfectionists moan, it won't change the fact that this is Sony's one of the best selling cameras of all times...

It's been a year with this camera and I just can't find any difference between IQ of this and m4/3 or even some APS-C cameras.

In addition to that, wi-fi is tremendously useful. Editing your photos on the go and uploading them online via iPad helps you a lot.

What a remarkable camera and lens. Those who complain about a price, buying a full frame DSLR with a lens this good would be around the same dollars or even more.

Rally Man: Looks great, but lack of expandable memory killed it for me.

And for those that say 16/32GB is plenty, good for YOU, not for ME.

I still don't get people complaining about non-expandable memory. Unless you are listening to every song on your library everyday or watching every movie you had again everyday, it just does not make sense... You don't have to carry your entire collection with you everyday.

peevee1: Apple went "glass back", asians copied. Apple went aluminum back, asians copy that too. Pathetic. But at least they move from their usual all-plastic junk.

Hello, is anybody there? The very first iPhone had Aluminium back, geez...
