Esign: The sharpness of all lenses used is really excellent. The colors are not, WB seems inconsistent (girl painting). I see now why so many prefer to use their X-cameras in B&W mode.
The second one has comment saying "converted from in camera raw, adjusted to taste". That's probably the reason WB seems different on it. Can't say for XT1, but in general Fuji X series has the best auto WB of any camera I've come across (Canon & Olympus are pretty good as well, Sony WB leaves some on the table).
This looks really good! But ouch, I just upgraded to xe2 over Xmas. If price is not a concern, can anyone think of a reason not to upgrade again? I do wish the xe2 has bigger & more comfortable EVF and faster AF tracking, both of which are added here. Plus the weather sealing on xt1 from another rumored site. Too good...
Robert Eckerlin: It is only very recently that i came across mentions of "the fuji colors”.
Can somebody please point me to webpages or to pdf documents that explain (to non-experts) and illustrate the "fuji colors" by comparing photos of the the same subject shot one time with a good non-Fuji camera and another time with a good Fuji camera?
Thank You very much in advance.
Notes: I have already asked that question in an older dpreview thread …probably, because the thread was old, nobody noticed my question. I also asked the question to the Swiss support of Fuji without much success.
It's one of those photographer "preference" people refer to, not really a technical comparison such as image quality or focus speed. You can check out Steve Huff's website and he has a review on Fuji X10 in which "fuji color" gets several mentions.
I myself have both Sony RX100 & Fuji X10. I shoot the same subject using both in jpeg, and I compare. You do that and you'll see the difference. Fuji color is vibrant and yet very realistic, like film photos.
