Duncan Dimanche: You know the fuji sensors are nice in low light but they are never sharp. Even the RAWs are being stripped off noise in order to create an illusion of amazing high ISO performance... it does remind me of Sony's JPGs
It would be nice if those samples shot would be in RAW... But I know that there is little difference in Fuji's raw and JPGs...
I'm trying to like Fuji but I really can't...just look at that girl's portrait... there seems to be not much details....
Cheers and thanks for posting those
Have you used, for instance, a X-Pro1 yourself? How are Fuji sensors never sharp?
calking: Can't wait to hear what all the x-trans sensor haters have to say if/when the BAYER sensor XA-1 comes out at an even lower price than the XM-1.
Oh wait...never mind.
