sarge39: Looks like most comments are from people who don't own or never used a Fuji X camera. I own a X-Pro 1, X100s and the X-T1 as well as the OM-D E-M1 and a couple of Canon full frames DSLR's including the 5D MKIII. I use the X cameras when I want a lighter set-up and they are awesome. The image quality is fantastic for an APS-C sensor and better quality than my OM-D E-M1. I feel that poor picture quality with the Fuji X cameras is more user error or lack of knowledge about the system than the camera itself. I'm not a Fuji fan boy and I think the OM-d E-M1 is a beautiful design but not as good image quality as the X cameras. I have taken many shots with the X-T1 that you couldn't tell the difference between the Canon Full Frame sensor. I agree with the DP Review almost 100%.
can share some setting or your experience regarding the X-T1 set up? looking forward to your advice.
Paninni: My new XT1 died after 3 weeks. The dial for Metering Area got stuck. And Zoom dial or Settings dial died completely. Whatta damn dissapointment. Otherwise camera is capable of good photographs, except for sports. The sample you are looking on here and complaining is nothing i have seen on my photo quality from XT1. I see this as fraud photo.
is the real dial...used for zoom in/out during review mode. I guess.. i feel that mine X-T1's real dial also not very smooth. perhaps one day will spoil too.
badi: I see a lot of people thinking about "i would love fuji to move to full frame too"...
Actually, first, i think it will not going to happen (at least not any time soon) not for fuji, not for olympus/panasonic. They developed great systems of lenses for this format especially to compensate for the small sensor. And second i would prefer not to, because this way they will conentrate on quality rather than splitting the features between the FF and APSC semi-systems.
For example the fuji's 23/1.4 35/1.4 56/1.2: This set of primes will produce images that compete with any DSLR FF with good lenses, going FF this companies will actually have to provide something better than the equivalent of this primes and that will go for higher price & huge bulk. Another example here: Canon's 85/1.2 is 2.2x times the price and 2.5x times the weight compared to fuji's 56/1.2.
One day I talk to the Taxi driver, in his 50+. And he told me that Full Frame is nothing, he feel not big enough. He is playing the old camera with medium format. well, fair enough for his age. I would personally satisfy with APS-C or m4/3.
Peter62: Quote: " The camera's DR modes also help you make the most of the sensor's impressive dynamic range."
The X-T1's dynamic range is FAR from being impressive! In fact, DR is VERY poor, compared to Nikon D7100 or almost any other comparable camera!
Quote: "The X-T1's dynamic range is FAR from being impressive! In fact, DR is VERY poor"
Really? DR is VERY poor? i think you mean "very very" poor. and do you hurt?
Naveed Akhtar: It's only real disadvantage is that "Fuji X-Trans sensor is damn good at higher ISO".I think DpReview should put this in the Cons section. Though, I know its not Pany's fault if Fuji knows how to really make sensors ;)
After sitting two months tossing between this one and Fuji XE-2, I just ordered Pany GX7! Whatever the small cons are, this camera is a level above the rest, as an overall package!
At one hand no camera is perfect; on the other you can't go wrong with any camera these days (Except Canon APSCs) ;)
well. I'm also the one tossing between XE-2 and GX7. By thinking of overall package/function, i think GX7 will be better choice. but my heart still toward XE-2 due to the IQ...i like the color from Fuji much more than other such as Pany and Oly EM-1. (by review samples)
now the Fuji X-T1 is out. I feel that it will top EM-1 for IQ, and yet cheaper by $100. what do you all guy comment?
Nukunukoo: Has a nice weight/handling combo and feels comfy on my hands. Design reminds me of the Japanese Gundam... but I'm leaning towards the GX-7 at the moment.
I am struggling to choose from these two systems. May I know what is the factor you think GX 7 is over em-1 in your thoughts. Lol, just for my reference. Thx
