crashpc: Canon killer. Grass definitely IS greener out there!
Probably extremely green thanks to the pixel shifting.
Art Wolfe is one of my photography heroes.
JerryShots: I read over and over and over again how it wouldn't save to "iOS Camera Roll" - Could the reviewer <cough, cough> simply have tried the more relevant ANDROID OS to indicate if there were any issues that the majority of prospective buyers might have with this unit?The other COMPLAINT she had with the drive - The whine that ran through the "review" was that it was too slow for in field real time back up. If she said it once she said it 5 times...Why not just have 2nd SD card to use while the drive was taking (four minutes?) to copy from the 1st SD card? No waiting and the solution (to end the whining) costs about 16$ for a 2nd card - Which if you can afford a dam helicopter then a 2nd SD card should already be in your camera bag.Pretty poor "review" imo.
I have to agree. If you own a helicopter constructed from dams then a wizard such as yourself shouldn't be concerned with the petty matters of file storage limits.
mxx: "flare reducing Nano-GI coating"
With so many new fangled coatings around, shouldn't DPR do a comparison test on the efficiency of the different manufaturers' coatings?
I'd be keen to read something of the sort.
Terry Breedlove: Not worth the money if comparing to a FF lens. Nikon sells the 20 f1.8 cheaper and is rumored to have a 24 mm f 1.8 on the way which should be even cheaper yet and have better depth of field control.
So you're saying that these hypothetical people would make a decision about buying or not buying into an entire system based on the cost of one lens relative to another lens offered by Nikon? Classic.
Well surely it's freaking irrelevant what kind of glass Nikon, Canon, Sony or whatever else exists if I have a Fuji camera and I'm in the market for a lens like this. Your comment is completely unhelpful.
I'd just like to thank all the people who've taken the time out of their busy day to tell us they're not buying this lens.
Bjrn SWE: "... and can function at temperatures as low as -10° C/14° F. "DPreview
This suggests that this lens will probably not work outside in wintertime!?
It'll be fine if you live in Australia :P
Oh gee, can I use a Nikon lens with AF on my X-camera?
wootpile: While I applaud the quality of Fuji's lenses, I can't see the benefit of 1.4 in a wideangle. Perhaps someone can explain how a ultra fast wideangle that is heavier, larger and more expensive makes any sense as a photographic tool.
A 2.2 lens would have cost half, been substantially smaller and been easier for Fuji to achieve optical results from...
Awesome camera. I laughed at h.265 being both a pro and a con.
The only thing I don't like is the faux-DSLR body style, but at least the proliferation of controls makes up for that.
"Think of a reporter who must rush to the scene of a news story and take still photos for a story on a web site, capture video interviews with eyewitnesses, and live tweet images — all while on the move and on a deadline."
They already use a cheaper, more compact piece of equipment to do all this. It's called an iPhone. Sad, I know, but that's the future, not this FZ1000 knock-off.
redzob: I'm another X100s owner who's deeply disappointed by this. We saw very few firmware updates and the S seemed poorly supported (unlike the original X100 - which this hindsight I wish I'd kept..)
Adding an extra feature like a film simulation is not 'support', and your comment smacks of entitlement.
Thanks for the review. I'd love to own one of these cameras, warts and all.
Seems like a pretty good upgrade over the base model.
I think that throwaway line about 16mp being 'low' resolution is a bit much though. Most ILC cameras are either 16mp or 24mp, while there are only a handful of models in the very high res category.
Low these days is more like 12 or lower, and even then the difference is not hugely pronounced.
TN Args: Definitely gold.
Plus unique features
Plus best IS in the world, on every lens
Plus selectable best colour resolution in the world
Plus selectable better detail resolution than D810
Plus new advance in hand-holdable video stability for any stills-oriented camera
Plus compact and light body, any smaller would raise issues
Plus a price of $1000-ish
And you want to be respected for your reviews?
Why does someone like you need a review? You seem to have made your mind up already...
Beat Traveller: Wow, sharp! Samsung are churning out some quality optics.
Did someone deflate your tires this morning, or are you always this rude and abrasive when you deal with people?
Wow, sharp! Samsung are churning out some quality optics.
