Lord Justin: You know, while this looks like a very pretty camera, for rapportage, street photography and portraits it doesn't seem to do anything my D700 (and X-E1) can't do, apart from increase my overdraft by £2,700 odd.

Maybe I'm taking this hobby/passion of mine too seriously. But I've always thought that a good photographer's enduring statement should be his picture, not how he looks while he's taking it?

I got it because it's the smallest full-frame camera that works seamlessly with my Nikkors, has a proper mirror, starts immediately, has a near-legendary sensor and looks that won't freak out my (non-pro) subjects.

Good on you Fuji!

My X100s thanks you.

Juck: Nice, but Alpha 7 is much better.

Right, I prefer the false texture and moire in the fisherman and the boy image.

Nice files. That's what I'm hoping for. High ISO, virgin tripod hole. Street. Grit. Throw it in the bag. Bang it, bash it, abuse it, use it, love it!

I just hope the second-rate focusing system can keep up.

What's the story with the A7's texture in the fisherman's jacket and the boy standing next to him? Is that in the original? EDIT: I see it's not in the Raw. Overprecessed JPEG engine.

I like to think that as long as you're remembered, a little piece of you lives on.

Therefore, make photographs that you hope people enjoy long after you're dead.

God speed.

In reply to:

mosc: There is a lot of discussion about sensor size. We like to assume that image quality is fairly proportional to sensor area. That said, it seems like every new generation of sensor shrinks the gaps in image quality. The gap between FF vs APS-C, APS-C vs 4/3, 4/3 vs 1", etc. What do the experts think is happening? Will we be in a world where sensor area is less important or equally important in the future?

If sensor size becomes significantly less important, it makes sense that we go with smaller systems like 4/3rds. If sensor size is not diminishing as a direct link to image quality then "full frame" systems will continue to justify their size and price.

On one hand, we've seen an increase in the number of FF products on the market (D600/6D/A7) specifically reducing cost but on the other hand there's been some good pieces on 1" sensors and 4/3" sensors swinging more than their size alone would indicate.

Thoughts?

A little bit dry, but I like both suggestions.

Maybe a person to cut to with photography tips while the other talking heads take a break?

Composition especially. There are a lot of very well equipped people here who still make very foolish beginner composition mistakes, chopping off hands, subject too small in the center of the frame and unbalanced, untidy framing with little visual interest.

Finding good light.

Speaking of - lighting too? I don't know if you're going to have enough time, but some speedlight education ala Mike Wallace would be awesome too. All we ever talk about is cameras. Sell some flash guns and light modifiers too. My speedlight collection costs more than a (gah!) Df. ;)

Edit: oh and post processing tips too. Maybe with Raw vs JPEG shooting and white balance and monitor calibration discussions thrown in.

In reply to:

mosc: Another topic: Flange distance! The heart of the mirrorless sales pitch is removing the space between lens and sensor (along with it's bulky optical viewfinder). We've seen the advantages in size and weight (as long as your in the EVF >= OVF camp) but it does have a pretty big impact on lens design as well. What are the positives and negatives of shorter flange distances on lens design? Are there reasons why today's mirror less cameras are at a disadvantage due to a shorter flange distance? If not, might we see even shorter flange distances to further cut size/weight?

I would like to see a focus test on moving subjects, battery and wake-from-sleep comparisons added to that.

dlmccolm: Anyone know if it has a built-in intervalometer? If it does, it might make it to my camera bag - thx.

I believe I saw that in the walk through by Ralf:

In reply to:

sportyaccordy: This should have been an F-mount mirrorless camera. W/video, the D610 sensor and a price tag of ~$1500 it would have made a lot more sense. It should have blended the old with the new like Fujifilm and Olympus' cameras.

Not what I want, but ok.

A mirror is a feature, not a hinderance.

Stitzer23: Does dxomark publish reviews done by dpreview?

Thank goodness for DPR because the usability of the DxO website is horrible.
There are so many ways to better present their (excellent) data.

sandy b: I'm in. For the price of three beers a month I get LR5 and PS CS6. No more paying for upgrades. Compared to the price of this hobby, this is one of the cheapest expenses.

You trust them enough not to increase the price once you're hooked?

Don't forget, once you're bought in, they can INCREASE the price at any time and you have no choice but to pay!
