zoooming's recent activity

  • apologies - should have read - "Just look how popular the X100 series has been - it's been one of the benchmarks in IQ for fixed lens compacts". Zoooming
  • That sums it all up nicely. Others 'out there' expect new models to be capable of doing almost everything for as few dollars as possible - whether it's compacts, mirrorless or dslr models. And when ...
  • You may have forgotten about the pro brigade who regularly shoot thousands of frames a day. It won't take long to burn out a 7DMKII. That's why they use the MKIV's and 1DX's - shutters last longer ...
  • Not at all - they're just focusing more on where the demand is. Just look how popular the X100 series has been - it's been one of the benchmarks IQ for fixed lens compacts. Zoooming
  • Fuji is simply directing it's attention to where the market is most lucrative and at this stage it looks like it's with compact and higher end dslr's rather than the bridge models. Which is not ...
  • It surprises me how often posters display images of children on various threads - especially if they are under 18 yrs. Here in Australia legislation is quite strict in this area (child protection ...
  • Nothing wrong with having diversity - my comment was aimed at those who appreciated the reduction in size from the dslr range but did not sacrifice IQ. The further you swing back towards dslr ...
  • Among the reasons many began favouring mirrorless cameras, and ditching their dslr's, was their smaller size and lighter weight which made them less obtrusive and therefore provided greater ...
  • I only posed a question - there was no anger or annoyance (indignation). How could one wait so many years when the advances are so regular and the specs change so often. Understandable with...

  • 3rd post in is already raising the topic of someone liking the camera but then wanting to wait for the price to drop - on a $699 camera that sports a 1" sensor and a F1.8-2.8 lens. Really - what...

  • Replied in X100T
    I know I posted this quote (from an early appraisal/review of the X100T) in another forum but it applies equally to the topic raised here - "And while this may not seem like a huge upgrade over the ...
  • I don't think Fuji has aimed this "range" at the "average photographer". The photogs who seem to be attracted to the X100, X-E, X-T and X-Pro1 range and the lenses that come with them are more in ...
  • One website said the following about the brand new X100T - "And while this may not seem like a huge upgrade over the previous version, that might not be a bad thing. Fujifilm's method of adding ...
  • Replied in Here we go again
    Here we go again with all believers/critics going to battle once more - just like they did with the X-30. Zoooming
  • I guess we're going to go thru' this all again only with the X100T this time?? Sigh ........ Zoooming
  • Perhaps he can repost it just straight out of camera? Zoooming
  • You don't buy used? Hardly a reason to discount something when in the process of comparing. I have bought nearly all of my Canon pro gear used (includes 300/f2.8, 70-200 f2.8, 600 f4 and every body ...
  • Are you referring to the Fuji 55-200 lens? I bought an X-A1 for a walkaround a month ago and really like it. The kit lens is sharp and I may try/buy the 55-200 for the 'longer end'. (I have a stack ...
  • Fuji isn't the only brand that does this - most of the others do it as well. Incremental improvements to previous models to continually dangle a carrot to customers to tweak out extra dollars in ...
  • I guess more will be revealed when the first reviews start appearing. The mere fact that the X30 has a number of improvements over the X-20 (TIPA best expert compact camera 2013) will be enough for ...
