Joe11: Simply add same sensor type of the X-Pro1 in a little bit smaller size to the X10, increase the price of this new X10 by maybe 200-300 Euros. Then all will be happy! This is what most are dreaming about! Hopefully Fujifilm also reads this post and proceeds accordingly. Thank you very much in advance.
I hope we won't get a G1X from Fuji !!
The new X10 I was refering to shall have the same bright lense as the X10 currently has. But with same sensor type of the X-Pro-1 and thus no AA filter is required anymore. So please add a smaller version of the X-Pro-1 sensor to the current X10 and everything will be perfect. Price can become increased by 200-300 Euros of course.

Joe11: This G1X would be perfect with a brighter lense and Fuji colours.So I still have to wait unfortunately.I don't understand why they did not put a brighter lense to this camera like Fuji has done on X10.Maybe there will be further models with large sensors AND bright lenses this summer. So long, I will wait ..
Thank you for this information, Andreas.You are probably right with this.However I hate all these compromises.And if this G1X would have been more expensive by maybe 200 Euros with a faster lense, it would be still in frame for this kind of camera. But so we have a large sensor and a slow lense now. How wonderful this camera could be, also in low light, if they would have equipped it with a fast lense ..Ok, just my opinion. I will wait further on for update of Fuji X10 or till Canon knows that large sensor and slow lense is not what we are dreaming about.

Disappointing statement, especially also for the interested parties, which were waiting for this statement before buying this camera.Now we don't know what to do. Wait further 3 months and stay with the old camera for the time being ? Will this new sensor maybe have some further improvements or is it "just" without contamination of raw-material ?Fuji should give further more detailed statements, because with current statement, I probably will buy no X10, as long as there is no improved sensor.Don't know, if Nikon 5100 has face recognition for it's self-timer. Then I maybe buy this one. Don't want to wait further 3 months now ..
I don't understand why we have to wait till 12th March for further information.I have waited long time for such kind of camera and I surely will buy it.White orb problem doesn't matter for me, if picture quality is better therefore in certain other conditions. But it doesn't make sense to buy now before having heard their statement, whatever this is. Up to now, there is no confirmation that this problem is not caused by contaminated material due to Fukushima.And I can't believe any recall action, because otherwise they would have stopped all sellings in the shops at once. Don't you agree ?Maybe there will be a further firmware update, hopefully not affecting details, noise and dynamic range quality. Because if so, I will have a X10 with current firmware and white orbs! I just feel disappointed that there is no information before the 12th and I do not understand why. Wanted to buy this camera this Saturday, but this is before "information day".
Joe11: I do not want just a orbs comparison, but a complete picture quality comparison, in terms of details, sharpness, dynamic range and noise.
Currently, the people, that don't care much about orbs, will look on other aspects.
So is the Fujifilm X10 better in terms of overall picture quality ? If yes, I would buy Fuji X10, although there might be orbs in very few pictures.If no, I would buy the Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX5 of course.
I don't like just simply orbs discussion.I would like the reasons behind and there is too less discussion about this unfortunately. Where are the specialists that know the reasons and can tell other advantages and disadvantages of this new sensor / orbs ? If these orbs are a compromise for having better picture qualities in other conditions and it is not possible to improve both the same way, than I will be happy when these orbs will not be removed !
In my opinion, the reason can be contaminated material or a compromise. We don't know yet.But thank you for your opinions, also in terms of overall picture quality.I just can compare to the past and pictures of older FujiFilm cameras were always more pleasant to me than from other brands (my first one was a Fuji Finepix 2600 Zoom).For me, JPEGs are much more important.I don't want to do any post-processing.For post-processing reasons, a small DSLR like the Nikon D40 can be used as well.The X10 should be the better compact with similar DSLR characteristics, but without need of any post processing. This is also how it is advertized. All other buy the X100.
I do not want just a orbs comparison, but a complete picture quality comparison, in terms of details, sharpness, dynamic range and noise.
If it is just a filter issue, then I wonder how many of you would be disappointed when Fuji adds a strong filter. Then you can compare the close-up pictures of a leaf on a cloudy day and inform that the picture quality was better with the filter before.Best would be of course, to have exchangeable filters.But I'm pretty sure that Fuji will not make this for this cheaper class.So we should be happy with no AA filter or just a weak AA filter.There are enough other brands with too strong filters.But is it a filter issue ??
ktzuguttenberg: I think it is a nuclear-contaminated sensor (Fukushima greets the world)One can not exclude KontaminierugIt could be a plutonium contaminationfirst-time buyers are already suffering from leukemia?Now our homes radiate the X10Strictly speaking, the X10 would be disposed of in nuclear repositorieswhat does the CIA?
I go today shooting with the X10 - hope to survive
Did you check with a Geiger-Mueller counter tube ?This might give you some confidence to feel safe.But also when there is no radiation, I would not exclude such an influence on sensor behaviour completely. These electrical components are very sensitive.
I'm also still wonderung, why there is no or less discussion regarding no AA filter or weak AA filter. Nikon D70 has a very weak AA filter and shows a lot of details therefore, but sometimes also some moire.Anyhow, I would embrace this issue, if it is caused by no AA filter or weak AA filter, as this will give us more details in the pictures! But who knows ? What is the truth ? Contamination of material or design of sensor / filter ? Fuji, please inform.
Thank you for your investigations.
But can contaminated raw-material from the Fukushima disaster really be excluded ? These are my only fears. And if Fuji does not know the reason for white orbs itself, this should be checked urgently!
If it is due to no AA-filter or weak AA-filter, then everything is fine and I will buy this camera the next days. But what is it really ?If there is no AA-filter or just weak AA-filter, then I'm looking forward for overall picture quality tests, especially sharpness and details! For this reason I would not care much about white orbs, if everything is ok according to specification. But again: Hopefully it has nothing to do with contaminated raw-material from the Fukushima disaster. Can Fuji confirm ?
Why is there no discussion regarding ..
a) Influence of Fukushima disaster to sensible electronic components ?Is there anybody who has checked this camera with a Geiger-Mueller counter tube ? Why do you exclude any influence of it ?
b) Weak AA filter or no AA filter.Of what I would dream about, to have a X10 without AA filter.I don't care much about these white orbs. When I make pictures of shiny objects, I use another camera. But I would like the advantages of weak AA filter or no AA filter.
So what do you think ? I hope Fuji will make no stronger AA filter with all your complaints. Because if you want these white orbs to be removed, picture quality in low light conditions might become worse in return. Is this what you want ?
So please don't talk about faulty sensors, but assumptions which can be the reason for the white orbs. Hope it has nothing to do with contaminated material from the disaster. Can this be excluded ?
