Distortion correction gone wild?
LiSkynden: Innovative design? What's with that? In my eyes it looks just another P&S camera.
That was a joke, right? If not, design is more than meets the eye. Think inside the camera. Think engineering.
To me, this is very good news. It was a gamble. Would people realize that a big sensor is desirable thing. Or should we just go with the megapixels. I honestly never thought this camera would take off. But with publicity like this it might very well do. Which I applaud.
(Excuse my English.)
MichaelEchos: Oversampling technology is not new...
Did anyone say it was?
IcyVeins: Nobody is going to buy this lens except for suckers and people who want to brag about how badass their lens is.
You wanna bet? How about people who want a large zoom range, and don't care that much about edge to edge sharpness and/or shallow focus? I know quite a few of those (they use a 18-200 today).
Not for me, but nice to see companies doing their own thing.
Nikonworks: Save your money, look elsewhere.
Great, now I'm interested in the X10 again. But how will I know that I get the revised version? New name?
Nope, I still think the 6MP on my D40 is plenty enough.
Nikonworks: Your following words sound as those of a fan club participant, not as a formal reviewer at DPReview:
" Our first impressions are very positive though, and I hope this article will reassure and encourage anyone that has been watching the X-series and waiting for Fujifilm to 'get it right'."
Your use of the word 'hope' indicates your bias toward Fuji.
Your use of the word 'encourage' confirms the validity of my remarks posted here.
Oh well, what a shame to see DPReview take this road.
Fan this, fan that. I think we all need to relax.
Great! I've been waiting for this. Looking forward to the "mobilized" forum section as well.
Interesting. I was planning to buy this camera, primarily due to the optical viewfinder and the fast lens, but the "white orbs" turned me off. So if they indeed have a working solution for this, I might very well get one in the end. But we shall wait and see.
Raw would have been nice...

Wow, it's a new ball game with the software corrected lenses.
rsf3127: NEX-5N rules!
Very mature comment.
I can't believe it. Now for sure I though the "Threads started by users on your ignore list" header would be fixed, i.e. _inside_ the forums table even if you make the browser window bigger. It seems like such an easy thing to fix, yet it's been that way for months.
Nice, but is the "Ignore List Header Bug" that I've reported twice ever going to be fixed?
magnumgf: Looks nice with the retro style and metal body. Otherwise totally incomprehensible. Can anyone tell me what the point of a viewfinder that does not show what you get in the picture, it only shows 85% and it has parallax error. On top of that it does not show ANY shooting information, not even focus. You would be better off looking over the top of the camera if you ask me. There are other cameras out there with much bigger sensors, can be fitted with electronic viefinders that give you all the shooting into, can use a variety of lenses and only cost slightly more. Why would you pick the Fuji over them?
A functional fail, but looks sweet.
magnumgf: Yep, some of them. Some of them even worse (like on the Canon PowerShot S400). Still invaluable.
Oh, this OVF whining over and over again. I've lived with parallax viewfinders for around 30 years. No problems. And remember, the realistic alternative to this kind of viewfinder is no viewfinder at all. That's how most of today's compacts are designed.
