AdamT: That`d be a handful of a lens on a 1DX or D4S let alone a tiny A7 - No IS and poor edges at F5.6 see --> http://2.static.img-dpreview.com/files/p/TS7952x5304~sample_galleries/4498841025/3708375403.jpg
SOMEONE needs to make a decent standard zoom for these cameras which can produce across the frame sharpness . C`mon Sigma, step up with an ART lens Please !
All a7 second generation cameras have in body 5 axis stabilisation
petr marek: I have mine already ...NX1 and NX500 have really no competition in price/value/technology ...Are some of the Samsung shareholders or top managers from rival companies to make such a brand damaging decision - give up when becoming respected leader in technology?
Bigger problem was they seem to restrict other 2nd party lens manufactures from making compatible lenses which stunted the systems growth.
The NX cameras were well made with good sensors and if you want to believe DX0 (DPReviews favourite site to quote it seems) they made some excellent lenses. I was hoping they would be sensible and sell that part of the company (Nikon made sense by having NX mount?) but even that hasn't happened total waste of time and money. A real Shame and has been mentioned will make over consumers of their products think twice, a very damaging excerise for their Image.
Matt1645f4: My first DSLR was the 30D and I loved it and was a great camera but Canons sensors just don't produce the goods. They have fallen so far behind they are going to take longer and longer to develop their next generation how long did customers have to put up with 18mp when 16mp from Pentax, Nikon and Sony were far better and I can't see anything in the 24mp I've looked at on flickr that would make me consider buying a Canon again.
I have no favourite brand but i do like good image quality.
@vscd No i was comparing full res images from various Canons 18-24mp from flickr with Sony, Nikon and Pentax cameras and the Canon images suck.
Not my images, i just dont think Canons Apsc sensors up to the job the FF ones do look better but are still not a match for Sony's.
When comparing similar images with same settings and similar lenses Canon don't have the same level of detail, to me they look smudged. It is down to personal preference but I can't see why I would go back when my Pentax K3 and Fuji XT1 look better.

PentaxNick: What about the Fujifilm X30? Larger 2/3" sensor, great quality to print up to A3, fast f2-2.8 28-112mm equivalent zoom, great EVF.
I did think the author was lacking a bit of knowledge as the Fuji X30 is a great camera I had the original X10 and has several A3 canvasses hanging around the house that my wife loves and ordered them without my knowledge and they look fabulous. People seem to quick to dismiss Fuji which shocks me especially when it's some one from DPR but also Dx0 have never reviewed an X-series camera which I find very annoying as this site is always quoting that website.
owenleve: Make this with a nikon mount...
Make it with everyones mount and it could steal a large chunk of the mirrorless market.
Certainly one of the more interesting mirrorless cameras to be announced so far. Like the larger sensor but keeping Apsc could make this a good set up for wildlife shooters.
I agree with Imeng can't really see the benefits at the moment over my Panasonic 100-300. other than the extra !00mm of course. The Olympus Pro 300f4 is more intriguing.
mailman88: The cat is out of the bag....first full frame DSLR under $1900.00A game changer, we'll see
£1600 in UK already
Matt1645f4: Does It have in body image stabilisation, if not, no purchase for me I'm afraid
Some of the comments reminded me a lot off the funny reviews on Amazon for the Sigma 200-500mm f/2.8 APO EX DG lol
I am Joking lol :)

Arizona Sunset: In summary, here are the reasons to buy the X-Pro2 for video:
- Cool picture profiles
And the reasons to skip the X-Pro2 if you care about video:
- Moire city- No IBIS for Fuji's lovely primes- No 4k- No high frame rates- Jumpy PDAF- Jumpy ISO transitions- Noisy autofocus and IS in all Fuji lenses
Im not worried by video as it just not into it, but your point about IBIS is spot on and would make Fuji a real threat to Sony IMO.
I think the 5 axis is use by Sony and Olympus and Pentaxs version is really something Nikon and Canon will seriously need to start considering in their cameras soon
Marksphoto: I can print this size prints from my old 8mp Rebel xt, especially at 200 iso, what's the point? 5 mp is enough for 24"x36" print, I have even printed downscaled to 3mp with no problem...
Here are the real issues with the xt10
1. no touch screen so that you can tap the screen where you want to focus and the shot is taken at the same time. I am serious, this is perhaps the most important feature that fuji is missing. Canon had this feature on it's DSLR line up on my 70d and fuji doesn't have it on a "mirrorless". Do not buy this camera until this feature is available or you will regret it!!!
2. The only reliable focusing is the center focus, everything else is a hit and miss, meaning you can't rely on features such as face recognition to always work so I default to center focus and reframe and ignore the rest of the focussing features, biggest disappointment for pro work.
3. colors are dull, at least compared to my Canon 5d mk2 colors.
nice glass though...
Dull colours, I've used most cameras due to working in a camera shop and Fuji colours are not Dull and i have to say Canon produce the dullest in my opinion, although the glass being used will affect that. As for touch screen i've never found it useful, i have largest hands and unless i use a stylus pen or similar its impossible for me to focus on what im aiming for and the Fuji motion tracking is the best i've used.I completely agree with you on Fuji glass though, it is some of the best i've used along with some of Canon L lenses.
Average User: The article was very interesting and informative. Thanks a lot. Happy Sony is making this run at excellence. Looking forward to the ratings these lenses get at dxo.
Dx0 is a waste of space there figures are meaningless. Try finding a Fuji sensor or lenses to begin with.
