The images to me a bit noisey. It low is performance is middle of the road. It would be nice if they offered a nice low light model. But the big thing is lens. they need a road map bad.
A lens road map with a mostly zooms is either weak and/or new. They need some sharp fast primes. But if you want a high MP APS camera, the camera is a very good choice.
It looks like a nice camera. Do not make umpteen new versions of the camera. Make lens or just roll over and die. Lens, look at Sony. See why Fujiflim has a devought following....lens.
..but you must remember this, sapphire maybe a bliss, but scratchs also maybe in the coatings...as time goes by. Also what opitcal effects from this new what ever they a using. I think I wait and see, by the by my fliters last a long long time as it is.
X40 with improved processor, it is coming in the X-pro 2/XT-2. It will be able to handle 4k movies and/or better over all quialty. The only thing holding all this back is why just go to XZ 100, an X100T with the new processor and a zoom lens. Or make both. A one inch and a zoom on the X100T. Just think 4K in a Fuji!
A good bag is well made and easy to use, these bags seem to fit the bill.
Just wish we would be given a better time table till new sensor. I have been using X-Trans since the early X-Pro 1. Lens are great nd frimware has been great also, just wish we all had a better idea about new sensor.
Under controled conditions 40MP, OK. Nose control good in JPEG, look at RAW, it is OK. Getting more out of 4/3 then is there is nice for those who shot with it. If I wanted real high MPs, a larger sensor would be a better answer, but now, not the only.
This is an intresting camera, you would think Leica would have thought it up.
It depends on what the finished product looks like and how much is this doggy in the window? Other wise, looks interesting. Where is that Sony guy yo tell me that they make the sensor.
km25: If this is a landscape camera, at fity big ones. Canons needs to up grade most of their wides, like the 20mm F2.8, it was not even a great lens twenty years ago. I say this with respect for the a fine camera company.
The 28, F1.8. Is an OK lens at best. The 35 f2.0 IS is a major improvement. The rest of the Canon lens are good. But Sigma looks like they are cleaning house, Nikon now has a line up of F1.8s. And Nikon also had their 20mm F2.8, it does keep dust out of camera.Nikon and Canon have been lazzy about their short primes and short teles. Even their 85F1.2 is an old lens. Nikon is better, but not by much. If you super sharp, go Sigma or CZ.

I was going to no 4k to keep down cost, then I saw the price. But then again it looks to be a still camera, the low MP can do 4k. I want to how it controls noise. If good, Canon... is back.
All the Fan Boys will be saying in the Forums, next year will come out with something just like/eqaul to it. You fill in blanks. Be happy take pictures. Oh and just think have way across the the Milky Way, someone or thing may just be peering back at us, only the have more Giga pixels and have less noise in low light. And the color is just better. HEE HEEE.
It looks like a print from the 19th century. That is said in a good way.
Yes, the eye of the beholder. Buy and use what you want. None of the cameras out now are unusable or plain bad. Get what you need and shoot pitures.
Bottom line, Nikon will fix it and stands behind their product. Give'em that.
Nice looking camera, more then likely takes nice pictures and movies. An also ran camera who's price will drop fast.
OIS used with a wide angle lens is a bit of over kill. The rule of suite speeds is to use your FL say 18mm as 1/18 of a second or faster. If you shoot a 1/4 of a second, hope your subjects a dead or still life, OIS does not make up for subject motion. In tele I can see the advantage . But a well trained photographer can get away with 1/30 to 1/60 in low light. I did with my Nikkor 105 F2.5. OIS in wide and normal range is for the trained. The other two lens Fuji offers look fine, the 16-55mm F2.8 is a choice for someone who knows want they want and how get out it what they need. I will bet'cha this lens is going to have great reviews! But one should also have deep pocks, this not a lens to just 'get' and leave in your camera case.
LBJ2: "which offers a fast maximum aperture of F2.8 throughout its zoom range"
Applying the crop factor, is this new lens really an equivalent f2.8 "throughout its zoom range" or is it really equivalent to 24-83mm f4.2 ?
F2.8 lens, is still F2.8. If use Tri-X at ISO 400 or Iso 1200. F2.8 is still F2.8.
quezra: I like how the same people who love to bash Sony are nevertheless slavish in their attention to every move Sony does or doesn't make... jumping to comment on some very old news (all the lenses shown here are identical to those at Photokina last year).
Inasecurity perhaps? If they don't bash Sony, they fear Sony will take over? They don't seem to bash other brands with nearly the same gusto. What about bashing EOS-M or Nikon 1 or Samsung for their lackluster sales and systems? The difference appears to be that this is the one system that is threatening their beloved brand(s).
Sony comes out with a great idea, FF mirrorless, just behind Leica. But diid the get the bugs out before shipping? No, sutter problems and so on. Lens, when Fuji camera with the X-Pro 1 they had three lens read to go, a wide a normal and short tele. All with reasonable F stops. Sony is now coming out with a road map of lens, not here , but will come. The people at Sony should have held up for a year or two and did it right. Things are coming together now. But the problem with FF ML, is size of lens vs body vs balance. Sony + FF equals no lens. They have a Ziess 35mm F2 that they know works, why are they not using it, the camera now using it is out of date. I do not hate Sony, it is just that maybe the shoud have a few photographers on their staff.
