okay but fairly underwhelming samples. I don't see the point to this camera but I am sure some others will.
Gotta wonder how the images from this gem will stack up its color-enabled cousin. Could be some offsets in quality with the inability to record color. If it is technically on par or better, I think that it is a brillant move for B & W shooters. If it isn't, it shows just how far out of touch Leica is from the pulse of relevant technology.
Entirely too many of the goobers around here live and die by the DPR camera tests, analyzing every word, puncuation mark and the arbitrary numerical score along with the coveted 'award' for' the camera. Goobers and fanboy spats. I find it entirely more entertaining to read the comments than the review.
the review makes me wonder what camera will ever get a superlative review sans lame criticisms from DPR. None, I think. 'Nough said.
Maybe Fuji should fire all of their quality control people.
I never experienced the orb issue because I used the X10 in the daytime only but I'd be miffed if I still owned it because such defect devalue a model. I sold mine right at what I purchased it for, try that now!
Nice job, Fuji.
I always appreciate a stand up move in this kind of situation. On the other hand, maybe a little more testing of products before rolling them out would be in order.
What i dont get is how fuji misses major defects that effect their cameras of late. My S5 Pro was great, then again it was a Nikon body.
I imagine the Nikon models up the line that are awaiting a refresh will benefit from inclusion of this sensor to go along with still better processing.
Jeff Seltzer: The autofocus is only slow in comparison to some cameras. But, it's fine in absolute terms. It's not the camera for you if you want to shoot sports. But, it's fine for landscape and portrait work - at least for me.
no doubt it is a decent camera, though not the best choice...even at its price, for landscape work(full frame options are better, even older models). Street shooters will be flustered with the lack of quickness in attaining focus but I think it is good camera for that nonetheless. but again, better options exist. The Nex 7 for one(with the right lens).
