Combatmedic870: I hate to say it. But their lenses are actually a really good value.
I would hate to see what would happen if they got their AF game together and pushed to a new 14nm finfet processor.
The m series touch screens are ridiculously good.
I think canon should pay attention to the Panasonic GX8 body.
They just need a 15 f2($399), 32 f1.8($199), 50 f1.8($249) and a 15-60 2.8-4($599).
I'm a fuji shooter. I'm fearful of the beast named canon. I would like fuji to stick around.
I think it's the most power efficient process out right now. 10nm is still far down the road.
1Dx4me: i am sorry folks, i'll wait till canon/nikon get serious and committed to mirrorless cameras to compete with today's DSLRs, then i'll think about it! until then, i'll grab my 1Dx/1dmk4 and deal with their weight and all other perceived "shortcomings". mirrorless cameras have another 2 or more generations to seriously catch up to DSLRs. until then, it will be a side show to serious amateur and pro photographers ;-)
In 2 years. I think mirrorless will match your 1Dx. Not In battery life, but in performance, I think, they(A7's) surpass it in IQ. Each new generation seems to leapfrog. Dslr's are pretty stagnant Imo.
I hate to say it. But their lenses are actually a really good value.
Cheyne: My prediction: 24MP APS-C f/1.8 35mm equivalent pancake New X-Trans II sensorSimilar body
I'd buy it.
That would be an x-trans III
It's this the fastest review time in dpreview history???
captura: Is there anything that Samsung can't do?
Samsung released the first apsc mirrorless camera. Some what original I think.
Old Cameras: What comes after Tera? Peta? Petabyte? Sounds unethical.
984 to go good sir. 1000 to = 1pb
Now if the would only release an XZ-3 with a 1 inch sensor and a sharp 21-126 constant F2.8 lens in a body similar to the lx100, with 5 axis stabilization.
How did I miss this event in Portland?!?!? Where was this?!?
whumber: Campy Chorus on a Colnago frame? Well done DPR.
@Richard....off subject...why can I see people comments that I have specifically blocked?
Everytime I read one of their comments I want to slam my head against my quarts counter until it breaks and stab myself in the face with the shards until I no longer feel the pain of reading their comment. I can't handle this Richard! I take no responsibility for my negative remarks to people that I have blocked. I blocked them for a reason Richard. I enjoy DPR. Just not their comments. 😣😞
sensibill: Disappointing to see emphasis placed on point and shoot OOC JPEGs and little mention of true RAW IQ potential, operational speed and street pricing. Not to mention the substantial resolution discrepancy, which will mitigate 'pleasing JPEGs'.
Lack of proper RAW support in Lightroom, demosaicing problems with X-Trans and the fact that the A6000 has a $100-250 street price advantage seem rather important to go mostly ignored in this article, IMO. As is the obvious chroma (and some luma) NR being applied to their higher ISO RAWs. The detail discrepancy between the Fuji and Nikon or Sony 24MP models is substantial, yet goes totally unmentioned in context of comparing RAW DR and higher ISO.
Dan....your awesome. The Sony comment is epic. I laughed so hard!
Looks like C-AF is still not that great. But single point AF seems to be significantly improved and up to expectations though. So not a sports spray and pray type of camera like the complainer below wants.
I don't know why someone would think you'd need to MF this camera. I have an XE-1 and I've never manually focused a native lens, except the 14mm doing astrophotography.
Marty4650: I don't think this patent will be of much use in making endoscopes. But for photographers, it sounds like a great idea.
Cutting down the reflection inside the human body would alway be a good thing.
halfwaythere: I still can't wrap my head around why they've launched this lens without stabilization.
Zeiss has said many times why they didn't like to put IS their lenses.
Google is your friend.
wandiba56: As of now I know no camera that can produce colours as striking as Fuji’s...Bar none, Fuji gives the best colours one can ever imagine. And I have used far more expensive, much more popular and higher megapixel capturing devices yet I dare say they all come short to meet the exquisiteness of Fuji colours...Well done!!
I have a strong feeling these shots were not taken by Rishi...
Interesting argument....some of you haven't been on fuji forums.
VSCO Ektachrome64. Looks better vs classic chrome Imo.
DVT80111 IS correct. As a Fuji user, I have no problem with him saying that he can get fuji colors PP. You can get very close. It just happens to be something I can get out of camera. As a fuji user, I have my own presets in PS for "Olympus colors". Nothing wrong with it. Sometimes I like the blues better. Sometimes I like "canons" reds better. Not to partial about nikon though.....
John McCormack: Thanks, DPR; a great first look preview. For what the FZ300/330 offers I don't think the initial price is out of line at all. This should be a killer birding camera.
Shutter Bobby...if I got great 8x10 prints of hummingbirds with my old canon S5 back in...2009... I'm pretty sure this won't have a problem.
Shutter Bobby. How big to you print you bird pics??? I'm guessing you have rooms in your house with 3ftx5ft prints of just...birds?
This looks like a nice lens. I'm sure it's performance will be right in line with its pricing. You always pay 40% more for that extra 10%. I don't understand why it's not weather sealed. It would have made one great hiking lens. Well it still will. Sure the price is high. It's a brand new lens. If people brought this high end dx lens. Nikon might actually make a high end dx camera and more dx lenses.
Jefftan: People who are interested in RX100 IV should seriously consider GM1, this is written by a happy new owner
way exceed my expectationsharp lens, excellent IQ, fast auto-focus, good image stabilization,fast operation
Mainly because of the great sharp lens, to my great surprise IQ even beat my NEX-5N with Sony 10-18mm F4 lens (already much better than the garbage 16-50mm kit)
why by this overpriced camera? just for being a little bit smaller?
And tolerate lower IQ and much more expensive? It is your money but I really can't understand
Most don't wear jackets during the summer. Having the camera with you will always be the best argument. The rx100 is a great looking camera. But in this case. The price is unjustified. Sure some early adopters will get it for 950. But I'm guessing 799 with in 2 months of it shipping. Even 799 is very expensive for a pocket cam. Maybe it with was whether sealed.
nimrod1212: Not sure what a "wide open shutter" is...
It doesn't matter....there are other things with that picture I'm looking at....why can't I see something like that! Lol! Meow!
lcf80: Dear Sigma, when we'll see Art 85mm F/1.4? Just don't forget about weather-sealing and FE mount support - it would fit A7R II perfectly :).
Well the canon 85 1.8 is an old lens with bad ca and isn't the greatest wide open.
I really wish people would stop bringing up the canon. The new nikon 1.8 fine. But the canon us a rather old lens.
