Stephan Def: I am trying to understand what the compelling argument for Fujifilm is, scratching my head. Megapixels matter, if its just only for the cropping capability alone. 16MP seems not to be cutting edge stuff anymore, except if they are on smartphone camera.

I used to think what matters is what the image looks like that comes out of the Camera. Strangely for me, so many here are going on about if the Camera itself is nice looking or not. And so on.

Colour profiles and control schemes are the two big ones.

On Nikon offers AF-S DX Nikkor 16-80mm F2.8-4E ED VR article (329 comments in total)

This is good. Not quite the price range I'd expect, but a good step from Nikon. Now let's see if they can release some more wide primes.

Doesn't look any different to me.

Good article! It's a very exciting prospect this A7rII, even if the name is closer to resembling a car numberplate.

tkbslc: The X100 series has delivered on this camera's exact goal for several years now. Not sure what the fuss is about.

It's like an X100 with a bit of extra juice in certain departments. Bigger sensor, faster lens, and hopefully better zone focusing implementation.

The X100's OVF is a huge advantage though.

I just read the part about PDAF and third party lenses. What a game changer! 2015 potentially belongs to Sony in terms of innovation.

Look forward to seeing some actual pics so we can gauge how big an improvement the sensor is.

This is a pretty freaking sweet camera. The price is well out of my league but I can dream.

The only thing that could really make it better is a hybrid OVF/EVF like the X100.

Papi61: I think that in 2015 many people would consider the absence of 4K video a deal breaker. Especially now that the Lumix G7 is out.

Did you actually watch the video or just read the title? It's an overview of the camera, presented by video. It's not an overview of the X-T10's video.

Beat Traveller: Oh my, such sharp, very colour.

In all seriousness, great photos... although I don't know if this is the ideal lens for close up flower macros.

So... you've elected to follow me around this website and troll all my comments? How mature.

Different strokes for different folks is all I'm saying.

Is it really worth everyone freaking out because this camera doesn't have 4k and DPR chose to devote any amount of time to it?

In reply to:

Sean65: Interesting. This camera was announced at the same time as the Lumix G7 whose video feature may have been of more interest than the T10's.

No, I just get tired of coming on this site and seeing people whinge about why DPR has done a review/preview/video about camera A instead of camera B. It's incredibly petty.

Any particular reason why you resort to sexist insults when confronted with the suggestion that you're just making stuff up to support your argument?

Yeah. Unless you can present me with a thousand people who all want to know more about video than stills on a camera, I'm going to struggle to believe there's evidence anyone cares more about the G7 than the XT10.

"May have been" is the key word.

Many would, but there are other cameras for such people.

Myself, I'm almost at the point where absence of a dedicated aperture ring is a deal breaker. Video doesn't really concern me.

where orange lines against blue sky, I can see orange colored "halo" around lines.
Astigmatism?

Who cares?

That's it, I'm selling my Fuji and going back to a DSLR. When I get those long arms I expect to be able to just walk into a contract with a major NBA team.

In reply to:

Beat Traveller: The shape is unfortunate, because the guts of the camera are quite appealing. Replacing the ISO dial with a function dial is probably a smart move, if opinions on how it actually performed are to be believed.

I wonder what the future for the X-E line is after this, because this is offering almost the exact same feature set.

I agree, the exposure comp dial working with auto ISO is a more useful implementation than an actual dial.
