What's next, chrome?
beavertown: 1200 bucks for this IQ?
Why don't they just put a smartphone sensor in it?
@ Badi. Enjoyable piece of gear with that image quality? FOR THAT PRICE? What are You inhaling?
Judging by DPR's sample photos, I find the image quality rather poor for such an expensive little camera. They are soft with not much detail. I'd rather spend just that little bit more for a better system (Fuji, Olympus, Sony, Panasonic).
Enjoyed this video. I like his work and the way he works his street photography. Don't care what camera he shoots with. Could have been done with almost any camera.
Ijuf Nonac: This is an excellent camera for everybody who want trees to look like some funny computer generated things (or maybe a painting?).
Take a look at this image.....http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/fujifilm-x-t1/samples/lmo/DSCF3822.jpg
It certanly looks like a 'beautiful' painting and not something comming from a brand new camera. When this image is viewed at 100%, everything becomes a complete mess!!
@MJJ Sevilla. In order to enjoy the XT1 I have to buy another converter and radically change my workflow? Thanks, I'd rather stick with what I've got right now ( Pentax K3 & Lightroom ).
Maverick2007: Perfect Water color effect!
Also Bonus is you can get Nice shadow too !!!!! Very impressed by post processing by Fuji! Wait a sec, there should have been button to add additional artifacts with one click of button like sweat or artificial rain etc? Hows that Fuji?
@Badi. Does one really have to subscribe Adobe Photoshop in order to get properly sharpened photos out of the XT1? I get pin sharp foliage out of my Pentax K3 in Lightroom 5.4 without a problem, and the K3 is not much larger than the XT1, especially with the Ltd. primes. Shooting RAW only!
Josh Bailey: not the most attractive looking camera out there is it haha
@ Josh Bailey. But it takes pictures, har har
G1Houston: If you guys remember that the Apple head designer John Ivy designed a Leica for charity auction. It seems that his design must influence Leica's in a much broader way. This Leica not only shares Apple's aesthetics but its UIF of less is more. This is one nice and clean modern looking cameras with a great UIF. All other camera makers, please take note!
George W. Bush tried to break it.
Gazeomon: I think there are more exciting 'entry level' cameras available than this lame plastic 'iteration of an iteration'. Look @ Fuji, Sony, Olympus, Panasonic, Samsung and Pentax.
Yes, I can see a lot of soccer mums hiring 80 to 4oo mm semi pro zooms for their 24mp entry level cams with that superb AF system to print super size piccies of their ball kicking kids chasing birds. Yeah, totally forgot that aspect of entry level photography.

DonFenix: Dear DPR, I appreciated you finally completed the K-3 review. Can I humbly request you do review the 645z? Best regards!
If they would, I probably would not live long enough to know their findings.
Calvin Chann: Full review please.
Has DPREVIEW the 'experts' to competently review such a camera?
halai: Not that I care about the score...but don't you think the K-3 should have a higher score than 83 DPR? :-)- No oil spots- No light leak- Has video- Very very good raw file
Isn't this what we want for our photography???
- No gas leaks - and feels very good in my hands with all the hard buttons in the right place. The RAW's are excellent and with the 'Limited' line of lenses it's a great system for travel and street photography.
Joe Ogiba: The Nikon D7100 received an 85% Gold award so I wonder what the K-3 will get, hmm. Heck the D600 with all it's problems received an 87% Gold award.
Is it really that important what kind of approval number somebody sticks on a camera?
LSPhotography: The K-3 rocks. It nails focus virtually every time, (unlike the K-5) and the image quality/files are fantastic. Images really seem to "breathe" and have fantastic depth, they can look very 3d. I have had mine for 5 months and use it every day. I'm still as excited to use it as when I first got it. The only thing it is missing (in my case) is more limited lenses : )
If you don't own one and have been waiting for a review here before you have bought one, you've missed out on a lot of shots that you could have taken with it!
Could not agree more. I would have lost more than 4 month of shooting with this great camera if I would have waited for a DPREVIEW assessment. Thankfully there are quite a few other sites and hands on videos on Youtube to get a pretty good idea what this camera is capable of.
oselimg: We would like unpacking of certain brands' cameras which is more exciting and in line with current voyeuristic trends than a hasty publication of a serious camera. As excitement will ware off Dpreview should consider exposing private lives of certain brands' engineers.
The stuff You are smoking does not do You any good - - - I think.
A camera strap review! Wow! Got nothing more urgent on Your plate??
C-GREEN: I don't normally do this but after DPReview came out with this I felt the need to say something. What I don't understand is why all the complaining. I used to come to DPR for information and knowledge but recently all I here is griping and complaining!! If the new V3 is not the camera for you then don't buy it!! When i'm in the grocery store shopping and I see that one cereal cost more than the other I don't write a blog about it. I get the cereal I want and that's it. Get a grip guys "please"! If you think it's over priced or under valued then again don't buy it!!
If You think there is too much complaining going on here why do You bother reading all this and then giving 'advice' what camera people should not buy.
dg90: Pentax released the K-3?! I cannot believe this!
Whatever! I hope a review of Colin McClunkys Nikon DF-leather strap will be released soon. I guess as usually 10 pages long, right?
Yeah, and the Df viewfinder hump cover review must be due any moment.
My camera purchases are not based on this sites reviews. If it were I would have lost 4 months of shooting with my very- very nice K3. Bummer that the 'Flu card' does not transfer DNG's, no shares in jpgs, no 'Flu card' for me.
