boarderphreak: Always fun to watch the Leica bashers crawl out of the woodwork. Because you know, this has *never* happened to any other manufacturer. Sh*t happens. The real test is how the respective company deals with it. And deal with it they will (check back tomorrow).
I just hope they cover this issue for a couple more years or offer affected users some other fair solution. Covering a manufacturing defect / known issue with this visibility for three years is not good enough in my opinion.
Jogger: I guess they wanted to stack the deck by excluding the A6000, it would have destroyed these cameras, esp. when price is factored in.
Every time when somebody claims that something destroys a competitor product or blows it out of the water it's usually a good sign for somebody taking the gear talk too serious. :)Nur die Ruhe.
Amazon is now just letting DPR test its own products. Nice, and to what surprise, there suddenly seems to be a decent phone when most other reviewers marked the device down as being nowhere close to the major players.
Tandua: I like fujifilm camera, I had x100s, xe1, xpro1 and now I have x-t1.
but..after 2 years from x100s...I don't see ...big improvments (same AF and sensor, no WR, no tilt screen)
..I prefer my x-t1 + 27 pancake instead x100s (xt1 is wr, tilt screeen, good grip, iso control, etc):
why do you choose x100t instead x-t1 (or x-e2)+27? for 5mm?
size comparison (xt1+27 vs x100s): http://j.mp/1iDE1HY(xe2+27 vs x100s) : http://j.mp/1iRYmsS
This has often been discussed in the forum btw. For many people the silent shutter and much nicer build quality might already be enough to prefer the x100 line. Sure, WR and tilt screen would have been nice improvements though!
princecody: Nobody has said how much better the IQ is compared to the S model
I think it won't be long before the first longer reviews arrive. Looks like a nice camera although I'm not sure about those rear buttons until I tried one.
Zvonimir Tosic: First the amazing GX7, now LX100. This is brilliant; real thinking outside the box.
Jarola, and this follows Sony how exactly? By bringing out a camera?
Michael Perham: When Fuji came out with the X100 I was enthralled and bought one, and the X100s after that. However, my main camera is still a DSLR and this was my compact for when I didn't want to haul around the DSLR. But, over time I found that this was really not compact enough for the intended purpose and ultimately replaced the X100s with an enthusiasts pocketable camera. I am happy now.
Unfortunately we are not discussing the x100 here but the x30 which is a very different product.
Shirker: My original iphone has just been rendered non-operative by an Apple reset, so this phone might just be the replacement.
A component failure is always an option, we all know that. The non functioning device though is non functioning because a hardware failure prevents it from operating as expected. Besides he's talking about a reset, not a restore.
And what "reset" from Apple would that be that renders an original non-modified iPhone non-operative??? My first gen iPhone is still in use in the family and works great. I question this "theory" to say the least.
DanielFjall: Do people still use iphones?
EthanP99: Fuji is adding stuff that has been in cameras for quite a while now. Good job?
@The Name is Bond: Changing the colour in focus peaking is hardly a must-have feature and doesn't change the camera dramatically. In fact, there are hardly any big changes in here.
Making more functionality available to customers for free is always a good job.
FriendlyWalkabout: I say no to the body, yes to the lenses.I hope they are made for the other apsc mirrorless mounts.
That's not going to happen, because then Leica cannot sell you the body, the EVF, the M-Adapter and all the additional accessories too.
Dazed and Confused: If I had the money I'd be ordering one in black with the orange strap and cover purely to look at!
That is what most Leica users do too! ;)
Catalin Stavaru: Good addition to the mirrorless market. You don't need a lot of lenses if you know what lenses the customers really need. I use a Canon EOS M and the 35mm F2 is all I ever use for pictures. And it costs $99 with outstanding sharpness. Leica also nailed it with the launch of a 35mm F2 lens.
On the other hand, Sony struggles with stupidly expensive Zeiss lenses (a 24mm F1.8 Zeiss costs around $1000), and that's why getting a Sony is not worth it due to quality lens prices (and submediocre kit lenses).
Buying Leica lenses like the overpriced 1700$ slow zoom for this camera (should have been included as kit lens maybe when starting a new system/mount) made anywhere except Germany is crazy too. If there's one thing Leica does well in Germany, it's making lenses.
Miwok: Why should go with this camera when a NEX-6 give me almost the same for half the price?
Maybe read up on some reviews and forum entries from Fuji users to get a better understanding of the appeal of the X-Series. You can also rent one and test it for a couple of days to form your own opinion based on your experience. Some gear works better for some than for others.
driftnomore: to simply put....it is expensive!
What comparison products do you use to come to this conclusion?
epozar: No fully-articulated back lcd...
...and your point?
Anastigmat: A dedicated APS-C camera system with a new lens mount makes as much sense as driving into a dead end street without a reverse gear. Sooner or later the car will come to a screeching halt because there is no way to turn around. Worse, the lenses are useless because they have electronic aperture control so you cannot use them on any other camera. Camera systems like these are destined for obsolescence.
So effectively you're saying the Fuji guys do the same things as most other manufacturers these days, they build their own system that won't work on another body in full auto mode. Works for m4/3 as well it seems.
Frank C.: 1/500s fastest shutter speed with auto-iso.... ugh1/180s x-sync ...average1/4000 fastest shutter speed... averagesummary: ugh average average
@yabokkie: your constant bashing of anything Fuji is tiring. just walk away from something you don't like, simple.
