    I've had a D7000, an X100S and currently own an X-Pro1 which I shoot alongside a Ricoh GR and D810. I think you'll find the 16MP sensor in the D7000 is precisely the same Sony made unit as that in...

    John - I'm pretty sure the 16mp X-Trans is exactly the same sensor as that in the d7000 but with Fuji's crackpot colour filter.

    They're handy in bright conditions, or when you need stability.

  • Commented on article Fujifilm X70 Review

    'Horrible' is going a bit far, they're just neutral. Shoot RAW and have whatever colours you like!

  • Commented on article Fujifilm X70 Review

    Try looking at the images instead of the cameras! The Ricoh GR is one of the finest photographic tools of all time.

  • Commented on article Fujifilm X70 Review

    Yeah there must be some good ones out there somewhere. The GR blows me away, hopefully they'll give it a proper update next time with a new sensor and perhaps an EVF.

    If you don't care about technical aspects of a camera's performance just ignore the reviews and buy the prettiest one you can afford. Pretty much any camera today will make a nice enough image...

    Daniel - I meant one with a decent lens. I went through two new copies and two used ones and they were all rubbish. Ming Thein did a comparative review of the Cool A and the GR using a CA that...

    You can snap away with any camera you like; people concerned with image quality will want to know how a camera performs...

    I simply do not see why anyone would choose this over a Ricoh GR.

  • Commented on article Fujifilm X70 Review

    OK, but try finding a decent sample of the Cool A...

    Who on earth buys a Ricoh GR to shoot JPEG?! Shoot RAW then you can have whatever colours you like. The Nikon A probably does have nice JPEG colours, but I've had several copies of that camera and...

  • Yeah, The Roaches. With horrid lens-sensor reflections ;-)

  • I know what you mean. I've been shooting my X-Pro1 lately while my D810 is away being repaired and I really enjoy it. I got my X-Pro1 new last year for about £300 and can therefore overlook the...

  • Agreed on all points, but the launch price still seems 'ambitious'. I think I'd value it at around £800. A D7200, which is about as good and about as premium is £700, add in an extra few quid for...

  • Fair enough. If the X-Pro2 is as well built as the original then I'm sure it's a lovely camera and I want one. It is, however, worth bearing in mind that cameras that're just as capable if not more...

  • I think it's carbon fibre actually, but yes, I know what you mean. I really like my X-Pro1 for all its flaws, and I'll probably pick up the new version when it's available at the right price.

  • Well, look before you leap. It's not as funky, but in terms of photographic capability, a Nikon D5500 will do everything this will, is actually more ergonomically pleasing, and has much better...

  • It's very nice and I'll probably buy one at some point. There're two big problems with it as far as I can see, and one minor one. The minor one is the weird colour filter which causes more problems...

  • The list price is probably a bit ambitious, unless the build quality has improved significantly since the original RX10 (which I owned for a time). The lens barrel was just cheap plastic and rather...

  • Blimey, there's not much to moan about there as far as I can see. I can see me buying one of these at some point, once prices have settled down.
