As an owner of a Fuji X system camera, I would like a fast, constant-aperture, zoom lens in the lineup, 24-70mm f 2.8 to be exact. Or even f1.8 like the Sigma zoom (f18-35), that's even better.
Thank you, Jeff. I've always enjoy your articles, this one included.
J D Tranquil: I am a non-professional who have both cards and I find the Transcend much more suitable for my use.
The Eye-fi card is compatible with a wider range of cameras. Therefore, I can use it on my main camera while the Transcend card cannot. The big problem with the Eye-fi card is that you have to load everything from the card to your device. That means, let's say you took 20 pictures from the week before and haven't download them to your device yet. And today you have just taken a picture that you want to load to your device; once the transfer begin you have to download the 20 pictures from the week before first.
This is my experience on both cards. Hope it's helpful in your buying decision. Each card has its own strengths and weaknesses. It's just which one better suits your needs.
Another problem with the Eye-fi card is that pictures can be downloaded once only. I travel with the iPhone and the iPad (without the SIM card). I use the iPhone to send pictures to Facebook while I enjoy other pictures on a bigger screen of the iPad. That means I have to choose if I want which pictures to be downloaded to which device. And that cannot be done easily because the pictures go to the device in sequential order. Once the pictures go to one device, they cannot be transfer to another device via direct mode.
In these respects, the Transcend card can be more useful. I can choose which pictures to be downloaded to all of my mobile devices. I don't travel with my laptop so I don't have a problem in that regard. The Transcend card also allow me to share the pictures with my friends who travel with me in that instant- the limitation the Eye-fi card cannot do.
I am a non-professional who have both cards and I find the Transcend much more suitable for my use.
Thank you, Jeff. I've been a fan of yours for years and I'm glad to see your reviews here. Your reviews influenced my purchasing decision on some very good digital cameras. I'm very happy to see this head-to-head format and hope it continues.
Interesting article. I just wish there's a view-all-pages button.
KonstantinosK: While I find the price of the camera pretty much expected, I laughed at the price of the lens hood and the thumb grip. Are they ZEISS branded?...
Thank you. My thought exactly.
I will dearly miss the watch. Look forward to the change, especially, the low-light test. You guys just keep moving forward. Thanks!
I followed the link and found this very interesting article. It answered some questions that I had. Thank you very much, Carsten.
armanius: No face detection AF?
If there's no face detection, I'd rather get the RX100. Love the beautiful design though.
A somewhat big leap lens-wise for the Canon G-series. Another me-too product in the fierce camera industry. Sorry but I'd rather see more change in this mammoth. As an owner of a Canon DSLR and the Canon G series, I'm very disappointed.
I would love to see a change in IQ rather than the added wi-fi capability. I just want the RX100 so badly.
Thank you. I've been looking forward to seeing Dpreview coverage on this very interesting camera and would love to see the first impression page as well.
Totally agree with Dmatter. 18 mp feels just right for me.
