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.
This is not a new dilemma. In the day of flim, shoot with a spy camera like a 35mm or get a real camera and shoot with a view camera ( 4X5 to 8X10 or even bigger). Well we all known the 35mm story. Crowned by the Nikon F. The many pros shoot with the new medium format for size, yes wedding photographer did use 4X5, like Linhoff. But the photojouralist like the 35mm. New lens and film created AN IMAGE WITH ENOUGH IQ to not make photos look amateur and detrack from the image. This what they got from the relaively small cameras and all the small lens they can pack. Thrity-six shoots pre roll. IQ is not every thing, getting the "image" is. With the mirrorless camreas becoming more popular. Will APS(C) create a new new place in photoraphy, just like the 35mm, a little spy camera.
On paper, the Samsung and Fuji look very close. The Samsung loses F2 at 18mm,per the little video. They both have 3 Asph lens and two EDs and MC. OIS on a wide to medium tele is not that useful. For long tele I would what it. But some how IQ must suffer from it. They both look look like nice lens. I think Fuji has abetter over all range of lens and cameras....also the Trans-X sensor with no AA creates very sharp images. And the new X-PRO / X-T are on their way. I like prime less, owned the 24-70 Canon, great lens, sold it, I like primes. So, if you like having only one lens, this may be it for Fuji owners. Knowing the history of Fuji opitics, it will please their owners. So forget the f2.8 is not really F2.8 and it is too big or someone else makes a better. If you own Fuji, you know better.
km25: A Canon 24-70 wt is 805g, 1.77 lbs. The Fuji only is 655g, 1.44 lbs. All fast and wide lens are goinr to large, but this is a one lens for just about everything. Remember, the X-PRO is APS-C and some cameras like the Nikon 7000 series is nearly as big as nomal FF Nikon. The lens factor is 50% less, the wt factor will about the same. Did you exspect an 16-55mm F.95 should only wiegh as much as an 35mm F/1.4. They make other lens that cover this range that lighter, buy one of those. This a Pro level and they work for a living.
F2.8 is F2.8. A FF may have more light gathering, ergo the image is less noisey. That has noting to do with the lens. The lens is not a sensor. Perhaps you can solve Unitified Field, be for you go to bed tonight.

Billons of years ago, when I shot with 35mm and medium format, when I would take a light reading, I would put that into my lens, 35mm or 6x6,6x7. The ratio of film size to apture as to do with lens size. F2.8 is is F2.8. In land of 4x5 cameras or point and shots. DOF inherent to the foremat via lens focal length. An 8mm FL will always have more DOF then say a 300mm lens....no matter the sensor or fikm size. Even if 8mm is normal.
