ThePhilips: DPR, can you make an article about bags for mirrorless cams?
Most camera bags I could find fall into two categories:
- Too large for the smaller package (esp lens pockets are way oversized even for Oly 1.8/45). (A.K.A. DSLR bags.)
- Fit camera+lens well, but have little/no room for extra lenses, not even the pancakes. (A.K.A. P&S/video cam bags.)
And too heavy. Cameras are lighter and lighter, but the bag is heavier and heavier these days.
I liked Tamrac bag until I moved to stealth bag. This must be a good bag and more stealth than the other Tamrac, although I don't like the logo on the lid and it still looks like a camera bag.
Kurt_K: Stellar optics, no doubt, but man are these Touit lenses ugly.
The other 2 Touit lenses were not really stellar...
Lardinio: I'm stuck (happily!) with big investment in Nikon glass and system. If I'm going to buy a Fuji it's because I want a second, small, cheaper system with just a couple of lenses. As facinating as the X-T1 is, it doesn't fit my requirements at that cost. May be I'll buy one used in a couple of years when it'll be down at £500.
showmeyourpics: I cannot believe all the negativity in most of these posts. All the new digital cameras are miracles of engineering with performance and function sets that most photographers will never fully learn and use (the glass is 90% full). The X-T1, together with the E-M1, clearly shows where the real progress is today: strong, smaller, lighter, weather-resistant bodies with EVF's that are already excellent and in a short time will surpass optical viewfinders in every application. I am a seasoned photographer who began with manual film rangefinders and light meters. Photo gear is the tool that allows me to transform my vision into fine-art quality prints. My main system is a pro-level APS-C but even with my Nikon P7800 I regularly take home publication-quality pictures of snow and ice in temperatures near 0dF and snowstorms. I am always thrilled of what my cameras can do and marvel at the advancements that every new generation brings forth. Make no mistake, this camera is a true jewel.
The negativity comes from the lack of money to buy this camera.
Nigel Ward 2: Strange to think that it took Nikon 4 years to design the DF camera and come up with major design problems (I can't easily adjust the aperture wheel when the strap was on)..and Fuji have appeared to have actually listened to what photographers want...and at half the price!
My DF is going back...hello X-T1
The ONLT thing that I don't like about this camera is: FUJIFIILM LOGO. It makes overall camera look somewhat cheap and strange... It should be a bit larger or just to be removed. Many people will use gaffer tape, anyway.
I'm sure that many users of EM1 and A7 will try this camera. I'm looking forward to seeing the comparison from "real" users. Looks very promising.
kadardr: That is MILC identity crisis when they want to look like SLRs of the eighties, and we say how nice and how new. It seems SLR-look sells well. When a MILC looks like a DSLR, it is less than a DSLR. If a MILC wants to be more than a DSLR, it needs to have a big tilting EVF with very high refresh rate, and an articulated LCD screen, nevertheless a touch-screen. To keep up with smartphones the screen should be at least 4". Pocketability is a myth, and smartphones will always be better in pockets. AF speed still remains an issue.
High resolution big EVF may require SLR shape.
plasnu: Dpreview should publish the reviewer's name.
OK, I could see them now. (edited)
Heaven is for real: JPEG review should be tested this way http://www.dpreview.com/forums/thread/3612932
Yes, this is the professional review.
pacnwhobbyist: Would a firmware update be able to address some of the issues with the JPEGs, I wonder?
Dpreview re-review the first NEX cameras after firmware update and the did get much higher score.
Dpreview should publish the reviewer's name.
You must use hight contrast lens like Zeiss for more accurate focus peaking. This ultra low contrast Vivitar is not suitable for focus peaking.
A trusted Japanese rumor site says it is about $1800.
le_alain: NIKON !
Look on top plate and front dial !that was you should have done !
I so wanted to love the df, but after a try, and a non better finder for manual focusing, decided to sell all my Nikon gears for years.
Bravo Fuji !
+1 Only thing I concern is the crop rate for legacy lens. Other than that, this is the winner, so sure.
Cane: Anyone think it can actually track a moving object with AF yet?
Let's see. I think it's not as good as Canon, but probably as good as Sony DSLR.
Henderson May: reminds me of contax..
I wish the quality of the finish will also like Contax.
