Might need new mtf chart to test as the older version with aa filter had blown it already :D :D :D
rallyfan: Poor AF performance is a real disappointment. Shame.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zZ9er60UOT4it seem that the new Fuji firmware has made X-E1 AF speed in PAR with RX1. Even that X-E1 got helped by the AF assist light while RX1 did not. So that would mean equally dissapointing you say?I guess 0.5sec AF speed is REALLLLLY disappointing indeed.
happypoppeye: As long as people keep buying them, Camera manufacturers will keep making over-priced cameras...
Exactly the price of pioneering. FF on compact body and leaf shutter, Zeiss lens with AF and all..
Why do I got the impression when looking at it's 18-55kit looked almost identical with Sony's E 18-55 kit? :)
In my opinion, this review really reflects DxO findings.http://www.dxomark.com/index.php/Cameras/Compare-Camera-Sensors/Compare-cameras-side-by-side/(appareil1)/736%7C0/(brand)/Sony/(appareil2)/640%7C0/(brand2)/LeicaDoes this mean that NEX-7 is 'scientifically' better than 6 times higher priced camera?
Food for thought.
@cipher,indeed. I am about to buy ixus 220HS, and this thing really grab my attention. Yes we would see how this thing perform on low light as oppose to canon counterpart.
ProfHankD: Now that Olympus is building a NEX-like model with sensor "steady shot," perhaps Sony will finally add that feature to the NEX line? My NEX-5 does surprisingly well with just multi-shot alignment processing effectively behaving rather like a very smart version of Nikon's old BSS (best shot selector). However, my A55 has shown that sensor shift combined with multi-shot works even better.
Basically, sensor shift takes care of minor camera movements very well, whereas multi-shot is only ok at that type of motion, but multi-image alignment and combining seems very good at reducing subject motion blur in each portion of the frame.
Not that I am using NEX, but indeed bro! Bold and standard setter to Sony. I figure that these type of technology really what digital imaging is all about.It's time that 35mm step aside to make way for the new standard. ( not that I'm against it, I still use Pentax 35mm unit on my bag.)
