siquijor: What would you recommend for an underwater camera. The Sony DSC-RX 100 or Canon G1 Mark II. Close up details and color would be the primary concern, with speed being a close second. It would be used for marine biology projects and species identification, not just tourist shots. But the beauty of the shots would help a lot in preservation and promotion.

The new Sony Rx100 iii's color is better to my eye compared to previous versions.

Luke 65: To those who don't like the sample images: i understand that these are shot to be samples and show what the camera can do technically in different light / circumstances, but the problem is that most of the pics are unbelievably uninteresting. And don't put the blame on DP Review as it's almost always the case with most of the others sites doing reviews.
I've never understood why they can't shoot interesting shots in addition and at the same time they do technical samples shots. I have a theory that all these guys who are specialist technically speaking don't have artistic skills. Who cares that the shot is perfect technically speaking, sharp in all corners, etc, if nothing is "happening" in the picture. Even if you never shoot portraits and only landscaoe, a case in which i can agree that the technical aspect is even
more important, there must be something interesting happening in the picture, whether it's the beauty of the frame which transcend the landscape, etc...

U can say that again one of the very few times I have seen decent samples on Dpreview.

why are you comparing it to FF? it's not a FF camera and shouldn't be thought as such but as an everyday companion.

vittorionava: I spent some time comparing the images and I do not find any superiority of the Fuji... On the contrary! I can still read the words on the red brush in the lower right corner even at very high sensitivity... Just try and see...

XT-1 and EM-10 are very close. The colors are pretty close and but the EM-10 is sharper at all ISO's. X-T1 images look like Fuji processed them to remove noise and maybe added fine grain that is why they look so soft and require lots of work to get right.

itsastickup: No bokeh no buy.

You have to pay a bomb to get anywhere near the bokeh of an APS-C 35/1.8.

m4/3 is fine for many purposes, but without affordable bokeh it's off many of our radars.

That 25/1.2 should be a maximum $200.

Who are they kidding. Grow up, Olympus. Get some cojones and do what you know you have to do.

you want bokeh go full frame not APS-C... Show me the bokeh!!

I'm trying really hard to like the people shots for the new Fuji. I think something has been lost since the earlier Fuji's particularly the X100.

Shunda77: Why are all the Canikon fan bois running so scared over these Fuji cameras?

Is it because Nikon's woeful jpeg engines and Canon's outdated sensors are developing into festering sores on the buttocks?

I like Fuji but has your photography improved is question. It's just a device and I think it prolly hard to buy a bad camera nowadays.

I'm seeing no skin texture now at iso 800 they are taking the NR too far I prefer to turn the NR off but it seems there isn't a way for jpegs. I have a full frame and want a jpeg shooter.

skin texture does not look good at iso 800. Is there a way to disable NR on X-T1?

This doesn't look so good, nice color though. Skin looks really soft and filtery looking.
