On Fujifilm X100T successor rumored to feature new lens article (303 comments in total)
In reply to:

scott_mcleod: In-lens IS or IBIS. Either way. Maybe a bit better in the corners but 35mm EFOV is just right for this type of camera IMO, and stabilization would extend the available-light shooting ability tremendously. 28 is too wide, especially when you only have 16MP for cropping (if you need less wide, that is).

If they could make a less expensive Bayer version that'd be sweet (not holding my breath for that one!). Otherwise, don't mess with the formula, please!

Because the wider the focal length, the less of an issue camera shake should be. Now if it was around 85mm, or maybe even 50mm, I could understand IBIS. But imo if someone needs IBIS for a 23mm lens, maybe they might have some issues with their technique that needs addressing.

JMichaelsPhoto: I would love to see a full-frame sensor, personally. If Fuji, and others, don't want to invest in full-frame sensor technology because of the cost of also developing an entire line of full-frame lenses, as Sony did, it makes the most sense to develop a fixed-lens full-frame compact, as Sony did with the RX1r, from a competitive standpoint. That's just my opinion. I'm okay with the 35mm equivalent f/2 lens, but a camera designed around a 35mm f/2 full-frame lens that says Fujinon on it would be pretty sweet. I'm just saying...

Not sure I'd buy another X100 camera without it being full frame w/ a nicer lens. Either 35 or 50mm. Or something like 42.

IBIS seems like a waste for a 23mm lens. Fuji better increase the battery life if they introduce IBIS because many people have complained about the the X100 series battery life even though 3rd party batteries are fairly inexpensive.

I'd like to keep the rumors on the rumor sites, not DPR news / editorials / or whatever this is supposed to be.

In reply to:

ecka84: So, why would I choose this over FF 135L or my 150/2.8 APO Macro?

Of all the things to worry about in regards to making good photos, sharpness shouldn't be one of them. In this day an age, it's too easy to make images too sharp. If your images aren't sharp enough, it's not the lens that's holding you back, imo.

attomole: A useful lens. Probably more than at first sight, a Macro which offers a FOV equivilant to long end of most 70-210 2.8 lenses (given the focus breathing most suffer from) and at £700 expensive but not rip off territory, given its often the lenses which make compelling system choices, I nthink Fuji have sweet spotted with this offering.

I question anyone that tries to poop on this lens because of it's close focusing abilities. It's NOT a macro lens.

I'll 'mount' them all and overwhelm them with the sheer perfection of my 'sensors' size.

Doesn't matter how big your sensor is. It's how you use it that matters. C'mon, everyone knows that. hehe

KonstantinosK: Boooooorrrrrrriiiiing....

All cameras are boring. It's up to the user to make images that aren't boring. And that can be done on any camera whether fancy or not.

Maybe this will be the kick in the butt Fuji needs to produce an X100 with a full frame sensor, sharper lens and hybrid viewfinder. At about half the price of the Q.

Nukunukoo: All things considered, this has made me decide to get a Nikon D800e.

@ Nukunukoo Where are you finding the D800E for only $450 more than the D7200?

In reply to:

rjx: Why do all the brands insist on making their "rugged" camera lines with crummy colors and odd looking shapes? Can't they just make a rugged camera that looks more like a traditional camera?

That's a great point about the colors being easier to see in situations where a lack of viability can make it easier to lose a camera.

Full frame G1 X

In reply to:

JackM: Considering the fact that if I were to buy an M, I would only be able to afford one lens, this camera makes more sense! I like it. This is what the X1 should have been all along.

You lost me.

If you buy this camera, you still only get one lens (not saying that's a bad thing).

And you're not getting the rangefinder viewfinder or the full frame sensor.

These are two completely different cameras. Sounds like the M was never for you then.

If you need to save money you could buy a used or refurbished M from a reputable seller and buy some great, inexpensive Zeiss glass.

In reply to:

abi170845: For those people comparing the X100T to some other camera like the Pana LX100 etc, don't you get it? The reason to get this camera is the Leaf Shutter and the high synch flash speed. Before comparing the X100T to another camera, please compare it to another camera that has a leaf shutter, APS-C sensor AND high flash synch to 1/4000th of a sec. This is the ONLY reason why I bought the X100S. Please, don't compare the X100T to another camera that can barely synch to 1/250 or has fake Hi Speed Flash. Let see other cameras with a BUILD IN flash that are able to belt out shot after shot fill flash like the X100T.

abi170845

Those are good reasons to get the X100S/T. But I feel the #1 selling point is the wonderful and unique hybrid viewfinder.

And for those comparing the X100S/T to the LX100, I think it's idiotic because the LX100 is in a different category than the X100's.

LX1000's direct competition is the Canon G1 X, Fuji X30, Sony RX100, etc.

X100's direct competition is the Leica X's, Ricoh GR, etc.

In reply to:

Kim Letkeman: Same sensor, same lens. Not much new in this model it seems where IQ is concerned. But I'm surprised at the struggle with tack sharpness in these images. The second statue is backfocused, none of the portraits have truly sharp eyes / eyebrows ... is it really that hard to lock focus on the subject with the X100T? Note: The baskets are nice, but that's rather a large target in a fairly flat plane :-)

As an X100S user, I'd say no to your questions. Some of the hype I've heard regarding this T version is the performance is a little better than the S version, so the focusing should at least be the same as my S version. The S version struglles a bit in low light. But for me at least, using the manual focus aids (split image, peaking, magnification) makes it easy to manual focus in these less than ideal shooting situations.

In reply to:

princecody: Does it focus faster than the S? Better build quality?

As an X100S user I feel the X100S is built like a tank. The new X100T uses magnesium alloy on the top and bottom plates. I'm not sure why Fuji did that. But the build quality of the X100S is already very good. And it's a heavy little camera imo. Makes my Ricoh GR feel like a feather.
