From the Fuji presentation slide...
"Pixel area should be smaller than X-T11"......????
Did they let something slip or just a typo?
This is taking Retro to the extreme...
Mr K Chrome must be spinning in his grave!
Boxbrownie: Alias filter or not?
I suspected it would have, I do prefer the top control layout of the Pro models but after seeing the results from my 7200 (replaces my Professionally used D3X since I retired) I will be happy with my recent purchase, the lack of AA filter does put a bit of "snap" into the piccies without having to PP everything.
Alias filter or not?
Boxbrownie: I pondered for a long time what to replace my D300 & D3X with once I retired, I now know my recent choice of the D7200 was oh so the correct decision.
It is relevant as I have years of professional experience with the D3X as my full time camera, which is of course FF as you well know.
I pondered long and hard as to what to buy in retirement so I replaced my P&S Nikon with a P&S Leica (you see, I do like Leica) but wanted something lighter and more compact to use all my lenses on, the D7200 seemed fine and to be honest the only thing I don't like is the smaller OVF image, but just comparing this SL with a lowely D7200 shames the Leica brand I feel, they should and could have done much, much better.
It looks f......ugly also! ;)

Ha.....that would never happen in the UK
Boxbrownie: It is a shame it has all the controls of a point and shoot........
Well being a retired professional photographer (not employed by any other camera company!) I expect a camera of this sophistication and level to have decent controls on board, not something that looks like the control layout was lifted from lower priced P&S in their range.
And yes I like proper dials hence my P&S is a D-Lux (LX100)
I'll bash anything I don't like.......figuratively speaking of course :)

Lightcapture: You know what, I have a friend who's presently in Singapore and they have a good deal for this camera. Well, the RX100IV is on pre-order there with the original Sony 64GB SDXC (95MB/s) U3 card, extra battery and original Sony leather case (designed for the RX100 series). All in all, S$1235, which works out about £585. That's about the same price I got my original RX100 in 2012. Of course, I asked him to order it for me, and can't wait for it to arrive when he returns to England in a week's time!!!
Please note, that the second last paragraph in the WiFi page has an unfinished sentence.
Your not blind it is my searching thats blind, I didn't notice when I searched for the MkIV it reverted to the MKIII..........let your mate get it LOL
UK Digital, and quite a few other, even John Lewis have them at £569
Brilliant, love it............
Not sure if you have seen the deal now, camera for £540 then £50 cashback from Sony, the case and battery from Sony comes to £95 so for £585 you can have a UK genuine warranty model, call your mate quick! LOL
Oooo great, must dig out all my old enlarger lenses........save a fortune!
RichRMA: Resolution looks more like 12mp than 16, but noise control is great!
Comparing the E-M5II with this camera in the studio scene @200 JPG & RAW......the Fuli is completely lost, either something is wrong or something is wrong! ;)
It's a lovely little camera but that's one hell'o'va price for a compact, the new Oly 5II with lens costs same/less.
A lot of margin for fashion in there.
Boxbrownie: Looks interesting, but just look at the view of the side of the lenses you will get through the viewfinder!
@HowaboutRAW, Yes I have used a Leica M, but started on a Leica IIIf back in the 70's........so yes, I have looked through a Leica viewfinder and know what it's like, even if the early ones were a bit naff! LOL
And this camera is NOT a Leica.......so we will wait and see, but still looks a bit close to me.
You only have to look at the view in the third product picture to see how narrow the angle needs to be to cause a problem.

Its not a camera ranking though is it........its a photo downloaded ranking, so its not surprising Apple is so popular with all the i-phones and i-pads being used by consumers (not enthusiasts) for taking piccies......bit of a dumb table really.
