In reply to:

The Squire: I wonder why GM branded rather than Sony-Zeiss branded?

They chose GM maybe because they are thinking of a government bail-out if things go sour...

Chris Page: The focus point still cannot easily be selected manually. That is the killer for me.

@Chris: Have you already tried "focus and recompose"?

It is a quite simple and straightforward technique. It is sad to let a great and affordable camera like this one pass because of that.

Edgar_in_Indy: Oh great. So now for the next two years every time a new camera shows up on DPR, we're gonna have to read endless comments about how the a6300 is a better buy.

Maybe because it is...

Big camera, small sensor, no grip. No.

I'll wait for the mahogany wooden grip edition.

rsf3127: These Fuji cameras have strange artifacts even in RAW. One can see that in the sample images and in the studio scene comparison; Take a look in the brow mesh int the upper left corner and the hair at the center. They look awful. The colored circles also show some funny streaks.
Cameras selling at a much lower price point do not have this issue.
In the sample images, the Ferrari shot have terrible "watercolor" artifacts in the shadows.
I use CR and LR to convert my RAWs. Is the interaction between these softwares with Fuji files always that bad?

@Beaver: I fully agree with your assumption that the X-Pro is not in the same league of either the A7 or D610 concerning price and IQ. ; )

@Beaver: there is a brown materialin the upper left quadrant. I suppose it is a mesh or natural sponge. Compare the Fuji images with D610 or Sony A7 (that have the same Mpix count and are more affordable). That is not sharpening alone.

ProfHankD: Once again, Fuji has built a desirable, yet overpriced (and oversized), APS-C camera that could be mistaken for a Leica that somehow lost its red dot. I think the DR mode 100%, 200%, and 400% concept is very nice, and something Sony should really put into their cameras in some form -- I'm in favor of anything that gives independent control of the analog and digital components of ISO settings.

DRO is inside Sony cameras since A100. And it is very good if you shoot JPEG.

I do not trust PU coating anymore.
My hiking backpack (lowepro 110) is peeling everywhere and leaving dirt in my equipment.
It is a shame because I really liked it for its size and padding.

Nice camera. But you can get cameras with EVF, better video specs, more megapixels and an AA filter for less money.
Sony A6000 comes to my mind. It suffices to put it side by side in the comparison tool to see that it delivers better IQ.

Hi Erez.
In a few weeks, I am going to spend 5 days in Los Glaciares.
Is there a particular spot that you recommend, aside from laguna de los tres, sucia and torre?
I always admire your work. Very well done.
Thank you in advance.

Not that $ better than my 6 USD Minolta 50mm f/2.

I have always wondered if GoPro was a bit overpriced. Now I know by how much.

A very nice lecture. I have not enjoyed a lecture on photography as much as I just did for a long time.

£4050 body only. No lenses, no live view, no video, no deal.

In reply to:

rsf3127: This is a niche product.

The niche is people who absolutely need a DSLR/DSLT performance on a tight budget, including lenses, that can be had for peanuts.

@Dave: if you read my entire post, you will see that emphasize the lens price. Which other system provides the ability to have a stabilized 85mm 1.4f AF professional grade lens that you can find second hand in mint condition for 400 USD? I have just got one at Ebay.

This raw histogram appeals to me as a 35mm user. It is shameful that Sony has not implemented such thing in their cameras.
The other features are nice for studio work.
