"Professional quality video capture at 2.7K30"
Another marketing invention? What is that 2.7K30, something like 1500p30? Or is it 2700 pixel wide, but the same 1080 lines high?
ISO 40? What kind of sensor do they use for that? Interesting choice of base ISO, probably because the lens has fixed bright aperture.
Must be very relevant for many on these forums...
mchevrier: There is no point in having interchangeable lens if no other lens match the color of your camera ;-)
It's yellowish, not snow-white like this one.
"leather alternative material"
and a good-alternative camera inside. :-)
peevee1: Still don't have 85mm or pro zooms, yet making ANOTHER 35mm.And if their 35/2.8 is ridiculously overpriced at $800, I hate to think how much they would ask for 4 times more light.
Maybe you had a bad sample. "To say it should cost $200" is simply to say that it shouldn't cost more than similarly performing competition. You just don't price 35mm f/2.8 lens like the best 35mm f/1.4 lens on the market, and if you do, it is at least 4 times overpriced collecting 4 times less light and being less sharp etc.
Sony clearly went Gillette model with it's ILC lines - releasing reasonably priced cameras, while overpricing lenses and accessories tremendously (not just lenses, how about $600 VDA-V1K OVF or $450 EVF similar in spec to $89 and $200 Olympus OVF and EVF?)
It is sharper than Sony 35/2.8, probert500. I have seen the tests. You can see them yourself, on slrgear for example.Yes, the Sony is overpriced by the factor of 4 at least.
Bargain? Comparable Canon 40/2.8 STM is actually smaller, sharper, and 4 times cheaper! Only mentality completely consumed by Sony's advertisement might consider the product overpriced by at least a factor of 4 as a bargain!
peevee1: "professional reportage photography"
Are they still in the 50s? ;) Who does "professional reportage photography" with MF lenses?!
I wonder what photography is done without eyes? ;-)
Reportage is a job of a reporter (="journalist").Leica M is a toy for rich people.
peevee1: "It’s very important to maximize quality, especially in still images. I think we do need X-Trans. There’s no low-pass filter and moire is minimized."
Who cares about X-trans, nobody has AA filter with Bayer anymore.
Buy the 28mpix sensor and Samsung processor from the new NX1, and you will be golden, Fuji. Time to shop outside of Japan, the ancient 180nm factories wouldn't do anymore.
I thought you are answering "Just another Canon shooter", sorry.
Dimit: Clear is:Digital photography is a joint venture of electronics as well as optics.Sony is no.1 in electronics,no doubt.Zeiss is no.1 in optics.no doubt.Jointly they'll become no.1 in the near future,that's what logic says.More lens(no doubt),more a mount cameras(no doubt) is a subdivision of this procedure..all the rest is e-whining,trolls,etc,etc...
Again, the irrelevant "DSLR sales", madeup mostly.
"DSLR sales" != "camera sales" Plastek.Worldwide, Sony has been #2 in camera sales at least from Minolta purchase in 2006 to 2010, unfortunately I cannot find fresher data, but remember this year in Q1 it is also ahead of Nikon. Nikon has no viable competitors in only 2 growing segments - mirrorless and large-sensor fixed-lens cameras, while Sony has about million most popular mirrorless and 6 RX-series large-sensor fixed-lens cameras (with only real competitors being 2 Canons and 2 Panasonics). DSLRs and small-sensor compacts, Nikon's bread and butter, are dying, and Nikon 1 is a failure.
Just a Photographer, 16MP and X-Trans are not connected in any way. You can put that suboptimal color filter array above any one-layer monochrome sensor.

"Not in Europe either"
Any proof of that?
GabrielZ: I really like this camera in almost every way, but I'd still prefer the flexibility of a built-in zoom rather than a fixed focal length lens, even if it makes it a little less compact. Also as others have mentioned here, an ISO speed dial instead of the exp-comp one would be preferable. Still...a beautiful little bit of kit! I've always had a soft spot for Fujifilms X-series.
Sure, and every competitor but Canon has EVFs.
Nikon's JPEG has been a complete abomination until last year, especially at high ISO, their noise reduction algorithm was splashing mucus-like colors all over people's faces. Thankfully, it has become decent with the recent releases. Canon and Olympus are just as reliable, although Canon, just like Fuji, tends to render a little too warm compared to reality by default (nothing that cannot be changed by a simple color adjustment), and Olympus is TOO realistic when "Keep Warm Color" option is on in incandescent light situations.
"Even you give other camera a full 1 stop advantage, Fuji still better in noise performance. Play with the noise SD chart in DPR reviews and you will see the result. "
I did.Unlike you, I also looked at apertures and shutter speed values.Unlike you, I also looked at the level of detail left.
peevee1: "The user profile of 7D owners is ‘high amateur’ and enthusiasts who want high framerates and professional photographers who want a lightweight, fast camera. And also anyone who doesn’t want to carry something big and heavy."
Really? ;) What is his definition of big and heavy then, a tank? ;)
Put a battery grip (already integrated into 1Dx) with a battery on 7D2 and I am not quite sure which is going to be heavier. :-)Even without a grip, this monster is twice the weight of full-frame A7r with much bigger viewfinder. :)
