  • Hi Joachim, I agree that it has a lot of value for the money. It is sharp, has great bokeh and can do a lot of things. If I had to choose the X-E1 (my camera) with one lens only, I'd probably...
  • There is no "if". It has been confirmed will be a APS-C camera Confirmed by who? Must have missed it :-) Bernie
  • Replied in If xpro2 is FF
    could you help to explain that if xpro2 is FF, technically, does this means that current lens line can not fit it? Need a new lens line ? Different amount? Bigger lens size? Higher price ? As long...

  • Those are not just beautiful, they have power. Life and death. BW was the right decision. I have shot in Varanasi a few years ago. But I must admit I could not relate enough to the place. I made...

    As good as it is, even the best EVFs still just can’t compete in terms of realistic contrast, brightness and overall clarity to a glass prism viewfinder." So does this guy also speak about the...

    Interesting. 3 Fuji X cameras now in the top 10. Nikon=2, Canon=0. Congrats to Fuji for creating so much buzz! Unfortunately Canon and Nikon together still sell probably 50x more cameras than...
  • Stunning sounding camera but my main concern is apart from the extra bells and whistles its the same sensor so same IQ +/- a little bit. Is that enough or am I going to think this was an expensive...
  • Here is a shot taken with the X-E2, natural light and an awsome Nikkor 105/2.5. How can this possibly be soft?? The Nikkor one of the finest lenses ever made - and it shows! Isn't it more a shot OF...
  • Replied in Overestimation
    If I were to guess I'd say 20%. Add another 10% from the Fujirumors site (since there is overlap, otherwise in isolation that's probably also 20%). If anyone has any research papers or facts to...
  • Replied in Absolutely
    1. Used they are very cheap (in Europe to be had for 350.-) 2. Image quality is not worse than in the latest models - basically same sensor. 3. Color output in the X-E2 and X-T1 has been changed, I...

  • It is not only here on dpreview, at amazon.com (which this site is owned by, right?) under "best sellers in digital cameras" (all digicams) the X-T1 (after one day at rank 2 or so) is now No. 14....
  • I've shot Fuji DSLRs from 2003 on, now X-E1 and I also trid X-E2 for a short while. In the DSLRs the JPGs were a bit better in terms of DR and tonality, in the X-E1 they are still good, but Raws...
  • It really seems to be that fat. A bit surprising, because Tamron's 17-50mm/2,8 Lens (for APS sensors) and their 28-75/2,8 (for full frame!!) both have only 67mm filter threads. And both are quite...
