Seems like thicker LPF than OMD to prevent moire for video production. For photography, OM-D should be better.
Scottish Kev: Forgive me if this has already been covered but I spent a long time looking for a backpack that would carry camera gear and hiking gear, as when you are out in the wilds you dont have "just" your camera gear and then wear everything else. This bag like many out there only does camera gear.
Why dont more bag manufacturers actually design bags to carry camera gear and personal gear.
Oh and I did find a 1 or maybe 2 manufacturers who do what I think is a sensible back pack for hiking/carrying personal gear and I bought one but it was stupidly expensive (such is this camera/hobby/addiction ah well) but it does an awesome job!
Please make cheap oil substitute next.
90% of the photographer here use FILM. DP is a media for losers?
JuanSu: Love the concept of being able to do AF (and MORE!) with existing SLR lenses. I have a bunch of Nikon lenses that I would love to use on my NEX5N with AF. Hoping that more Nikon users chime in and Metabones will listen... please make one for F mount =)
Agreed. FD-NEX Dumb adapter is what everyone is waiting for.
jackpro: What a suck lens choice boohoo Sony RX1 35mm f2 is slightly better but would prefer f1.4 or faster come on!
This camera is not designed for someone who's primary concern is bokeh.
Leica killer. I'll expect this will sell extremely well. All pro will buy this sooner or later.
Great work NIKON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Combatmedic870: Well lets see if they have can beat the D800. It would be nice to see MF above FF again. If not then whats the point.
I hope the MF makers have stepped up their game! I would hate to see MF ghost.
I will buy this instead of D800 if the price is the same. No question about it.
Looks like this originally is a munition technology, which Canon makes huge money these days.
Super, except the price.
3systermuser: >it earns our coveted gold award, by a whisker.
no longer coveted gold award I think , recently all your reviewed cameras getting gold or at least silver , why is that?
I would have been surprised if X-E1 didn't get Gold Award.
Robert Eckerlin: A perhaps silly question about lenses for the Fujifilm X cameras.
What I would really like to have for the compact Fuji-Film X-cameras (this includes the X Pro 1 and the XE-1) is one single reasonably sized zoom lens covering (ideally for me) approximately the 28mm-200m equivalent range. It does not seems that such a lens is on the Fuji roadmap.
Question: Is such a lens just not reasonably possible (e.g. because of physical/technical laws)? Or is it more a matter of marketing opportunities?
I believe to understand that zoom lenses covering such a large range typically result in a IQ that is below the IQ achievable with "prime lenses". But for my purposes, I am quite happy with the IQ of my DX AF-S Nikkor 18-200mm (27-300mm equivalent) zoom lense.
I think you may need to understand Prime lens is the original X concept. Fujifilm made kit zoom just for marketing purpose, not their original intention, therefore do not expect much more zoom lenses in the future.
Robert Garcia NYC: hmm, the Pentax K5 IIs actually has better image quality that the Fuji.
As long as you use the word A is "better" than B, you're still novice.
mediapro: I am not a regular poster, but sometimes I want to say something. Dpreview is, as for me, a great site. I am a fully professional photographer, which does not mean I am better than others, but it means that I know what I am talking about. And all these comments are disturbing me. I can not imagine there is one propho on the line here... All these comments make me laugh on one hand and on the other hand I find them very sad. Use this camera, make pictures in stead of selling all this bs. Then you'll find out Dpreview is right. It was also right if it got silver, or if it got nothing at all. This is, I can assure, a wonderful camera. I made pictures using an X-E1 of professional models (cfr Geneviève Lagravière - not the first the best) (you can see them on my fb). Well let's talk. Or no. I don't want to talk. Just look and see. And wonder. What Fuji nowadays produce is really top notch. No Leica for me. I have been working with an M6 for about 7 years. But no digital one for me.!
Yep. I finally completely forget about Leica since this X revolution.
One of the most talked about camera since D800 is finally reviewed, but I don't understand why it took so long.
I prefer left picture (conventional) to the right picture (hdr).
TORN: First the TOS resulted in reports of 40% of leaving users and now they have an incredible total increase. I wonder what is really happening. At least half of my IG connects left the ship end of december. Many good ones too.
The beginning of the end of the Instagram has just started.
Is this something like floating point?
micahmedia: For the full story open the resolution charts from Imaging Resource. The color star targets still look horrid.
This is still not ready for prime time.
Kudos to Adobe for taking up the challenge though! I'm curious if they can still take this further. Fuji would be foolish not to share some their secrets with them, but...well, I suspect they -are- foolish.
The solution is FUJIFILM buys ADOBE.
Mssimo: Camera Jpeg still seems to be the best option.
I too prefer jpeg, very unfortunately.
