km25: This looks like an other fine lens in the Fuji road map. Maybe I should not say this, a carload of optical experps will leave their lack of knowledge with me. Like mouths to a flame. I have the 23 f/1.4 and 56 f/1.2, should I sell my 14 f2.8. THis lens looks a lot bigger. I will take awhile and think it over and wait for the lens to come down a little in price.
An F stop is an F stop is an F stop. F/1.4 is the same in all lens, in all formats WHEN IT COMES TO EXPOSURE. P E R I O D.
vesa1tahti: Impressive, like most of the Fuji lenses ! Time to switch from Nikon to Fuji ?
I have heard Nikon is has good color in landscape. I like the skin tones better with Fuji. But who shoots just JPEGS-RAW, make your own color, the differrence is not that great. The finished product is on you....the shot is your creation, not the camera.
Yes the dof is not the same, but the F stop for gathering light is. This lens is a 16/24mm lens-that is wide, all these lens are going to have a lot of DOF. I have heard this before.
A 35mm camera and medium format camera, maunal light settings. Both have normal lens, a 50mm f/2.8 and a 80mm F/2.8. The light reading from a meter at a given ISO is f4.0 @ 1/250 sec.. You set each camera at 1/250 sec. and at F/4.0, you would not set the 35mm at F5.6, because ut has more DOF. If you wnt shallow depht of field shoot FF or film with 200mm lens @ F2.0.
But it is a nice lens, about 24 F/1.4 (FF EQL>). Priced better then Leica, Nikon or Cannon. Even the Sigma is not cheap. It should come down in time a few hundred bucks. The point is that Fuji is fine lens maker.
If you got the extra money it is nice. It is like a watch. The price range is huge. They all will tell time. It looks like the sixze of my Billingham.
Back in the 60s it was fashionable to carry your suff in a Army Surplus duffal bag, a small one. No one use camera cases.
km25: The new X-PRO 2 and/or XT-2 will have faster processor, many thing will be faster with the new camera(s). Movies will benefit the most. But for stills the x-trans sensor does so well with sweet 16.
Like Nikon FM or Nikkormat. If Fuji goes more for MP. I would keep my old 16MP, for low light work. I may go back to film. Just carry a digital for low light or take the opposite of what film I have loaned. It would also make for good back up camera. The Fuji is fine system the closest thing to my Leica M7. This X-T10 may also ending up a great second body to any new X-PRO or XT they make. Again to have back up camera and if the camera has more MPs, low light work. I do think the line of Fuji cameras using the x trans may shorten.
km25: A tool for egomanic , or even for the government to keep on eye on you. A great tool for that autobiography you wanted to make, now with pictures and video clips. A device every narcissistic needs and loves, but not as much as themselves.
A weapenized version should both fun and asuming. Senetial destroy!I want to go back to my youth, in the 1960s a phone was just a telephone. And camera was a camera. Just got to figure out how to save JFK and no war in Viet Nam.
People do not want to photographed as it is. You are going to be confronted. There some big people out there, you can bring your lawer. It will give photography (street a bad name) not a good idea. People will find ways to foil these drones. No need for street wars.
Try shot picture in the street, use a big camera, someone is going to give a bad look or maybe you can take your lawer with you. In 45 Cal. revolver one can load a 410 shot gun shell. Or maybe an RF scrambler. or an armed drone.The police will not help you, they will side with people. Oh and you mabe able look down on some low cut dress. This is a bad idea for populated area.Nes pas.

P R I V A C Y. Like unwanted flying insects intruding on peoples lives. Not just a shot here and there, but shot gun effect hoping for a good shot. People will carry around small gauge shot guns and shot these things down...stand your ground. Can just see a normal day in a big city, with all the people walking to and from. And almost as many of these things flying over their heads.
The new X-PRO 2 and/or XT-2 will have faster processor, many thing will be faster with the new camera(s). Movies will benefit the most. But for stills the x-trans sensor does so well with sweet 16.
The wisdom of age.
No that's two pizzas. One cheese and everything.
krikman: Good try, but no place onboard for pilot, cargo and weapons.
Oh come on now, piolt how big would it be, cargo like what?, Candy Bar...but weapons, now there is a practical use for it..Hehh:->

Cjar: I put my lens cap in my front pants pocket.
Maybe I should sell pants pockets on Kickstarter?Who's in?
Rear lens cap in pants pocket and front in shrit pocket. If you have system and stick with it. There well be little loss.
Even my Billingham bag looks less "steal me". When you change lens it is time for time out. Doing it on the run and/or not taking time to think about what you are doing is going to cost you in the end.
I read more about the Cannon, they aredoingwhat Nikon did in the early Nikon, the camera without the AA filter, uses an other filter to cancel it out, cost savings. I do like Nikon lens. But Cannon makes fine lens too.
I was going to say hoe great the Phase One is, even under low light, until I realized it does not change it's ISO. For the FF DSLR. fot me the winner is the Nikon D810. They both look about the same in normal light, with a little more detail going to the Cannon, at 50MP, you think. But the low light goes to the Nikon, again only by one F stop. But the Nikon images look sharper. The AA filter most be left in the Cannon system, for video end(?). I do not know if this has to do with the AA or not. If I were buying, I would want the Nikon.
I do not know how Art is, but he (or she ) should know this lens creates not so good pictures.
