Peter Bendheim: Some of you people who are actually complaining about the Fuji update saying it should have been nailed from the start are really just a bunch of over indulged, consumerist spoil brats. Fuji at least continually improve their products. This release was in all probability stuff that Fuji have learnt between the XT1 and the XT10. And pro user feedback. And Fuji has improved an already excellent product.
Honestly some of you should really just grow up somewhat. And have some gratitude.
This is a camera forum. Hands down, of all the forums I visit, photography seems to elicit some of the most immature, obnoxious, trollish comments I've ever seen. Don't know why. There are a lot of great posters and helpful people here, but some people...meh, they have way too much time on their hands.
Am I missing something here? Wasn't this camera released... like... ages ago? If it is, I bought it for my wife this past Christmas. Not a pro level camera, but great for what she needs.
marmotto: FT-1, mount adapter, for an 1" sensor ????2.7 rate ????my 10mm become a 30mm, really ????
my 55-300 mm a 150-900, why ???
Well, why not? Good crop for long distance shooting (e.g., birds). Check out the Nikon 1 forum. I'm not sure if I'd get one, but don't understand your confusion at all.
There was a recent article in Luminous Landscape where the photographer decided to go with a M4/3 system for long range photos and a Leica medium format for short range and landscape photos and thought it worked much better. Given his experiences, he argued that hauling, clamping, and constantly connecting was just too much trouble, and that a M4/3 allow far more flexibility and comfort.
... not that I'm personally going on a photo safari any time soon (although I'd like to... )
What a bunch of complainers on this forum! Have ANY of you even tried the camera yet? It's barely in anybody's hands and practically the whole lot of you (with some exceptions) have dismissed it. How about a parallel? Nobody asked for a minivan 30 years ago and many thought it would die a quick death but it become one of the most useful vehicle configurations ever.
For some of us who travel and value compactness, even a small dSLR is too much. I love my D3s for sports and high impact occasions, but there is a reason why technology is designed for different scenarios. I can see something like the Nikon 1 being very handy.
THINK about it people...
