Jesus, Josef, Mary that camera is fast. Pretty amazing, can't wait to hear some real world feedback.

chupacabra1: Comfortable to hold? Really? All other reviews said that the art dial location made it very uncomfortable to hold and that the grip is a must buy to enjoy this camera. I think Olympus really messed up on this design. I think there would be many returns.

Returns, I'm counting on it 😊 I want one.

Raist3d: So I have to say I do find a price a bit high with no weather sealing, but given its a luxury looking item (if such thing can be said below Leica pricing) I guess it is what it is.

I will commend Olympus for leveling up their JPEG engine because they were starting to fall behind Fuji, and I do like the new monochrome and color modes.

Pen F images are comparable to the original Fuji x100 jpegs, well done!

Those B&W are spectacular.

CraigArnold: Image Quality looks...

Fine. Perfectly decent. Roughly on par with older FF cameras and current APS-C. Good enough for me.

So why would you buy one? Well obviously if you like the experience of shooting with that camera.

X-trans rendering is just a bit different, sometimes better, sometimes worse. Adobe is fine and usually good enough, C1 better. Certainly the files need a different treatment from Bayer in ACR, using the sliders on Bayer autopilot seems to be a recipe for artifacts, but if you're willing to adjust first your brain, then the sliders, the results are pretty good most of the time.

Apart from the fact that EVERY SINGLE CAMERA that gets discussed on DRReview is too expensive for a bunch of people who then get really angry or scornful about the price of the camera (instead of their income) it's not ridiculously priced either. Think of what's in the camera and the price points of what those components cost and Fuji are certainly not gouging here.

I am getting one.

The voice of reason.

feilong: I'd get this camera if I didnt have a Sony A7R II. The only reason why I got the Sony was because I needed a camera that shoots 4k for work. Fuji produces a better lens selection than Sony and their camera's are more enjoyable to shoot.
Their headed in the right direction.

Sony's producing some mean sensors though

Just more enjoyable lens are great with Sony Zeiss and overall faster to focus. It's only recently Fuji picked up speed with 35mm f2 and the 16mm is pretty quick.

rhlpetrus: I see a lot of jaggies in the D7200 raw conversions, compared to the Fuji's. Is that an ACR artifact?

NR is still there in raws too, but it is tolerable now. They should issue firmware for old cameras to correct this.

Nice, seems nicely matched to a Nikon D550.

KonstantinosK: In the studio scene, the images from the GR make the others look like they are out of focus, especially offcenter. Just look how soft the faces look from Fuji and Leica, RAW ISO 200. A lot of false color from Ricoh, though. And those high ISO's from Fuji are so clean but lack detail. Surely aren't they cooked?

Forget the Xtrans folk compare with Fuji XA2 instead. I wish they'd just release a regular bayer and stop with xtran salesmanship.

Does this man have huge hands? I thought the D500 was D750 size.

Jim Salvas: With the recent price drop, the E-M1 should have been included in the previous camera group. It's now under $1,000.

Oly with upgrade, please do a recount😊

Bueche: Quote from the X-A2 summary.....
" It uses a 16MP APS-C sensor with a traditional Bayer array, rather than the X-Trans array used by other X-mount cameras.This has disadvantages (X-Trans sensors do punch above their weight a little when it comes to output resolution) but the upside is that Raw files from the X-A2 are more widely supported by third-party Raw converters."

This is (it has to be!!) an extremely bad joke! X-trans is a complete failure when it comes to detail reproduction. It can't handle greenery, foliage or anything else with lots of fine detail without making a mess of everything. Just look at all x-trans discussions going on at the Fuji forum.

Fuji, would do themselves a great thing by releasing an XPRO or XT bayer body. The color is awesome on the X-A2 and microcontrast is all there take a look at the comparsion chart even better download the raws for yourself. Xtrans I don't think is going to work with video anyhow and the bayer would simplify a lot raw conversion workflows. I wish they would get a high end bayer camera out.
