On Fujifilm releases X-S1 premium EXR 26X superzoom article (383 comments in total)

This 'compact' camera weighs 920g!!!!!

Will this appeal to its target buyers?

Also, http://fujifilm.jp/personal/digitalcamera/x/fujifilm_x_s1/sample_images/img/index/ff_x_s1_001.JPG shows noisy skies and mushy objects (from grass to leopard to air balloon).

Really, a disappointment..

photo nuts: Comparable to some of its peers (G12/S100/S95), better than LX5/XZ1 but worse thanV1/J1. In short, no surprises here.

Neither do I own any of those cameras. :)

Nice. ISO 160, f/10, 1/250 s mean ambient light is pretty strong for you to have decent background colors. :)

IEBA1: The color balance on the whole thing is off, or the colorimetry on the pre-selected cameras is wonky. Look at the paper clips: Nikon & Panny are bordering on green, while the Canon & Olympus are bordering on red/pink. And this is for the silver paperclips which are reflecting "white" light.

Same grouping when you select the model's face in the upper right- the Canon & Olympus are clearly more red.

But then, select the "blue" watch face and the situation is reversed- the Nikon & Panny now have _more_red in them than the Canon & Olympus.

Really makes you question the accuracy of all these cameras.

All these issues are not present in RAW.

But I agree the crowd that goes for such cameras probably only shoots jpeg. :)

JackM: The color issue does not surface in RAW which is what concerns me most. :)

Xentinus: The P7100 sensor is very slightly better. But the fast XZ1 lens (f/1.8-2.5) more than make up the disparity in sensor performance.

Ibida Bab: Not I. I am buying the Fujifilm x10 for the single reason, it is Made in Japan. Until Nikon starts manufacturing in Japan again I am not interested.

All Canon DSLR cameras and most Canon lenses are made in Japan with the exception of the 18-55 kit lens. Nikon high-end DSLRs are made in Japan.

There were some initial rumors the S100 was >1 stop better than the S95. Well, that's all horses**t. Better than Olympus XZ1/Panasonic LX3, same as Canon S95/Nikon P7000 and worse than Nikon J1/V1.

What a shame.

thx1138: Wow what a MASSIVE oversight to not mention the Tamron 17-50 f/2.8 VC and non VC lenses. How could you forget those two!

Never mind

I think the Sigma 150 f/2.8 OS HSM Macro lens should be on that list, much more so than its companion Sigma 105 f/2.8.

Graystar: I was expecting much better results. The noise is terrible...even visible when full image is viewed. Disappointing...

I am looking at IMGP0198-ACR now. I don't suppose you know what shallow depth of field means?

d3xmeister: I am blown away. ALL DSLR's look like cr@p now. ALL. Imagine what can be achieved from RAW.

But a number of those images are converted from RAW! :)

AMAZING image quality. I am curious how a 40 MP 35mm Full Frame camera will stack out against this. Can the best Nikon and Canon glass come anywhere close? Even when shot wide open at f/2.8, the lens still impresses.
