this range of aperture is usually found on standard zooms in other brands. This is good for such a telezoom if the price is ok.
Eleson: Who's footprints is it on the left? :)
Haven't you seen the movie ?
It's about to get thrashed by a transformer, this is it's footprint.
wetsleet: "The composite image is made up of 55 high-resolution images, taken using its MAHLI [2MP CCD] camera"
So how does a 2MP camera take a high resolution image?
I love the "usually" ! Like this is a some kind of regular thing to send out a "malp" on another planet :)
I'm teasing Roland but I totally agree with you.
Don't agree to give them credit. They should finish their products "before" selling them, not "after".
Yes they created fine cameras but, for the X10 as well as the X100, you really get the impression that they rushed them out without proper testing and validation. You don't inspire confidence with that.
I like those 2 camera, but as we say in France : "qui aime bien, chatie bien"
Donar: Is the slow startup problem also fixed? I stopped using my X100 because startup time could take several minutes! And in between that time it looked like it was dead/broken and was not going to startup at all. Oke when I re-formated the memory card the problem was gone, but I like to work with large sdcards for a reason so was thinking of the OM-D EM-5.
I really like the panorama mode for the X100, but the internal stitching isn't that good, especially with white highlights (snow). Is that fixed? (does anyone know how the OM-D panorama mode works? The NEX-7 panorama mode seemed to work better than the X100's.
I agree with Donar, I have a sandisk extreme 8go and it's ok when just formated but half full or so, it can begin to slow down and it's a problem when you cannot empty your card every day. ex : I don't have my computer in holiday. If they could do something on this that would be nice...
Updated this morning (10 min), the RAW button thing is cool, now we have 2 customizable buttons. The camera seems to focus a lot closer. But it might just be an impression, I haven't done any particular test yet.
Anyway, that's cool from FUJI to continue to add stuff to the camera. If they continue like that it will become okay good !!
As for the sticky blades, so far so good. 1000 shots since 21/02/12 and no issue. my camera has a serial beginnig with 21xx
It's always a lot at the begining, it will come down.
