Jaxzon1822: Would this camera have about the same image quality as the NEX-7 ?I realize that this camera is using the same sensor as the NEX-5R and according to digitalcamerainfo, that sensor scored lower than the 7's.
I currently own an A55 and have been happy with it so far, however, with the type of photography I am doing now, noise and inaccurate colors are becoming more prevalent in the indoor, low light photos that I am taking.
As a result, I am considering upgrading to either the NEX-6,7 or Alpha A65.--(Waiting for a review about the NEX-6)--
Does anybody have any suggestions as to which one might be best for accurate colors/low noise photos?
Suggestions would be much appreciated.
Buy a Fujifilm X-E1. It has excellent white balance and excellent 35mm f/1.4 lens. I own Sony Nex-5N and X-E1. I don't think the quality of Nex-6 is a big improvement from Nex-5N. Sony also does not have large aperture lens.
WillemVO: Great ! But why the hell no image stabilizer ? The X10 (great small camera by the way) features one !
Image stabilizer is not required for f/1.4 lens. The image is also very clean in high ISO so no reason for image stabilizer.
gachsan: Greetings all. I'm a Canon 7D user for quite sometime and happy about its performance overall. I have 17-55 f/2.8, 70-200 f/2.8, 10-22 and 50 f/1.4 lenses. I also bought a Fuji X10 as my pocket cam and have been impressed with its EXR and lowlight capability. Tempted to get the X-E1 (available next month in Jakarta) but yesterday I attended a Canon wshop and tried the pre-production EOS-M (available also next month with the price about the same with X-E1, maybe even a bit cheaper) and fell also for it since I can use all my lenses and it can act as my wide lens camera whenever I have my tele attached to my 7D. Now, should I go for X-E1 and invest more in X lenses or just go on get the EOS-M. Gosh, that X-E1 retro looks is really gorgeous!
I got X-E1 with 35mm f/1.4 lens in Jakarta 4 weeks ago. Lot's of surprise from this camera, for good reason. Very clean even at high ISO, good color, excellent white balance, etc. I don't have to worry about ISO using f/1.4 lens. Set it all automatic then you get good pictures.
jsis: Tips for better photos according to dpreview members:
Rule #1: get a Canon or Nikon cameraRule #2: get an L or pro grade lensesRule #3: constantly upgrade whenever something new comes out
PortlandOR: I was curious about the EVF so went to the local photo store and demo'd the Sony NEX 7 which allegedly has the same EVF specs as the X-E1. It was definitely higher res than the X-Pro EVF but there's still no way I could use it. Feels very disconnected from the scene, and unnatural. That makes the X-E1 a non-starter for me unfortunately. Everything else in the specs looks sweet, however. I prefer the OVF on the X Pro but the frameline inaccuracies bother me quite a bit (anyone find a good workaround here?).
BTW, AF lag on the X Pro didn't bother me as much as the shutter lag. Hopefully the firmware update will correct this, but it wasn't directly addressed in the PR. We'll see.
I prefer using the LCD. Don't you ever taking picture by looking at LCD? It's big! X-E1 is my second mirrorless camera after Sony Nex5N.
Astaindasy: Well. It seems that all of my friends give it an attention. It's a beautiful camera. Only problem is price. I hope it sells in good price.
It is cheap in Indonesia, USD 1,300 with 35mm f/1.4 lens.
indianajo: Just a question to al of you, do i do a silly thing changing my canon 5d mark I with 24 105 l to a fujifilm x e 1 since I am more into the street photography?
Definitely not, you will be surprised when looking the result! You don't need to worry with high ISO; it is very clear in high ISO. White balance is excellent and this camera has a built-in flash. Use 35mm f/1.4 lens.
This is what I like from Fuji, F don't have to worry with ISO. Keep it automatic but I still get clean image from high ISO.
harold1968: Hats off to Sony on this one (+ the whole Nex series)
Really thinking outside the box and producing quality products
As a Leica shooter, the key thing for me, is how critically sharp it is at f2 as a strong attraction of FF is DOF playIf you shoot at f8 all the time, you might be better off with a Fuji E1 or xpro-1 or a Nex-6
Definitely you have never tried Fuji X-E1 with the kit lens of 35mm f/1.2
