DenWil: This looks like the cover of a romance novel or video game to me.
Because it's too perfect to be real.
I'm wondering if this marketing has really raised Pentax camera sales.
Now we all know the best way to dump those old digital cameras in our closet.
daddyo: I notice that the guy in these images is a 25 Yr. old, Gold's Gym fitness instructor.I, unfortunately am a 66 yr. old with a frog body -- ditto on the mirrorless camera system.
Plastek: Yawn... yet another NEX? Which one is this within last 24 months? 3rd? 5th? 10th?
We'll see 40 different type of NEX on Ebay in 2020.
Good deal, but I have some of them already...
Hmm, a low end mirrorless camera with a cheap toy mirror and huge zoom lens.
This camera will be a good ignorance barometer.
MichelBB: What about the 80 percent of the world camera users who do not use ounces and inches ?
Didn't you know that USA is defacto standard of the world?
I can't really tell these images from computer graphics.
+1 Added to my wish list
MrSkelter: This doesn't look much better than my K-01 with a FA limited lens. More testament to the Pentax than a slight to the Fuji though wow that lens is soft up close with the white flowers.
Although I somewhat agree with you about K-01 with a FA limited lens, they are twice as heavy as this... half price, though.
Mssimo: I have had the Sony RX1 for a month. I might return it for and buy the Fuji x100s. I did not like the results I got with the RX1. Very mixed. Auto focus was unreliable. Face detection did not focus correctly. They could fix all of the issues with a firmware, but I will not hold my breath. Fuji has a good reputation of taking care of customers, I really wish I could say the same about Sony.
Thank you for the image samples, looking forward to the full review.
I agree with massimo. I realized that keep rate was pretty low with RX1. After about 200 shots, I was already too nervous not to scratch this expensive camera, because I had already started thinking returning it, then I put it back in the box. You may think I should have keep it a bit more, but I still think I did a right choice.
I know this is a controversial topic. What I didn't like about RX1 is its rather harsh pan focus images when stopped down, and somewhat cheesy 645 kind of images when open. I think many would love it, especially for who mostly shoot with shallow DOF, but I'm not.
I was using RX1 mostly with AEL mode, so I have no comment about Program mode.
I returned my RX1. I did not like the images from RX1 either. I do not like those X100s images either. Mike Kobol site has RX1 and X100S images, and I have the same feeling. I keep my XE1 and wait for 23mm.
atone2: Definately not as good as the original X100. What are you doing Fuji??
Look at her eyes, her face, her hair... horrible rendering...
What´s going on here? I really don´t like the X-trans approach...
I have the same feeling. Why?
Roland Karlsson: Can someone tell me whats so special with GoPro? What kind of properties does it possess that makes it possible to take photos that normal cameras cant take?
rithex: cool project but doesn't really work that well due to the fisheye lens.
Also I see some timing glitch
Biological_Viewfinder: These comments read sort of like a comedy.
Canon Guy says, "It's rubbish, DXO is meaningless"Nikon Guy says, "It's science."Canon Guy says, "Not when Canon's not the leader anymore."
Someone actually asked if they should sell all their Canon gear and buy Nikon gear. Well, my answer is yes you should if you want the very best possible camera for Landscapes or Studio work. Otherwise, you should keep your brand because it's about the same for everything else. Understand that the D800 really only shows that massive resolution when its on a tripod and hands and mirror are off. If your shooting handheld, then that resolution gap is gone.
But the real question is "Why is it so important to have the best?"Everything is replaced with "new & improved", no matter what you buy.I think the Canon crowd would be better served to just let stuff like this bring about market competition that will generate even better Canon cameras in the future. Competition is good!!! Even for Canon.
Only few people knows that Canon and Nikon are actually the same company.
