Eigenmeat: It's only natural that Nikon suddenly had a "break through" on buffering technology from D7100 to D7200 after Canon release their 7D Mark II. Or they just been handicapping the D7X00 up until now?
Despite what manufactures charge for upgrades, memory is dirt cheap. Doubling the buffer size would cost less than a dollar from a component pov.
LFPCPH: May I suggest buying a Canon 5D Mk1 for 400-500$ on eBay instead. Okay you cannot fit an M-lens but then you can mount so many other lenses on a Canon EF mount – Nikon, Olympus OM, Pentax K, M42 screew mount, ect.
And if you don't want a DSLR?
JDThomas: Even Fuji can admit the AF isn't on par with the SLR. Something it's Fuji-fans refuse to do.
@JD, I don't believe you.
I don't think there are any Fuji users who believe that the X-T1's AF is as fast as the better DSLRs.
TorHA: The electronic viewfinder cannot be used with polarized sunglasses? It blackens out, presumably? That's a terrible disappointment. For me that's a complete showstopper. I must use sunglasses outdoors, unless it's quite cloudy. I can't take them off. That's not a problem for the one camera I own with an EVF (the DSLR of course is no problem).
I had high hopes for this camera. If its viewfinder is polarized then that goes out the window.
My X-Pro is the only Fuji I have this issue with. The X100 series, X-E1 and X-T1 are fine with my polarized lenses.
Peiasdf: "dynamic range of about 11 stops"Isn't that the crappy Leica sensor? Looks at the size and lack of control, I think buying an A7 series and use adapter will make more sense.
I know my X-Pro is not a real rangefinder.
But aside from both the Konost and A7 being full frame mirrorless cameras, please tell me why someone who wants a rangefinder body style with manual controls and an actual rangefinder focusing mechanism would buy the A7.
Man, Live Time is one of those cool things you think should be obvious to other manufacturers.
Maklike Tier: Please, minimalism is so 2007. I want at least two function dials that I can assign whatever function I like. Who wants to look at the LCD every time they want to change a setting?
Shutter speed on top and aperture on the lens. I do agree that one more dial for ISO or exposure comp would be good; they could put a dial around the shutter release.
I rely on common sense to stay out of the sun and thus avoid skin cancer.
Sunblock is an inanimate object and does not possess the ability to encourage me to do anything,
I'm a red head with a history of skin cancer in my family. I do not need to increase my exposure to the UV.
At one time people used to not wear sunblock either.
wherearemyshorts: "the rangefinder system will operate not with mirrors and prisms, as most rangefinders do, but with twin imaging sensors that overlay their images to produce the same dual image effect in the viewfinder."
Away go batteries done the drain. Battery life is bad enough on mirrorless cameras. Now another way to drain the battery.
The Fuji X-Pro varies the optical magnification of its viewfinder to allow for wide and long lenses. I'm sure the Konost engineers will have a solution as well.
kty: Sony A7 already conquered the potential market for this camera...
True, the A7 and this are so similar. /s
kty: This thing looks incredibly similar to the new Leica T.I doubt that they can sell it as it is now.
Considering the T apes the basic design of the Sony NEX cameras, I doubt Leica would say anything.
duartix: Unless that black circle near the grip is another camera/sensor pair, I fail to even imagine how can they generate a focus overlap picture from a single combination of sensor/lens.
Even very advanced software solutions by Google (the google camera app on Android is such an example) need a minimum amount of parallax to reconstruct/generate a depth map and thus create a that focus overlap, but doing this temporally (à la Google) isn't practical on a rangefinder where you need immediate feedback.
Plus, if it is indeed a secondary camera/sensor pair, you will have to account for parallax errors on the focus overlap reconstruction. And what is much worse, you will have to be very careful on where you place your fingers when you shoot.
P.S. Before anyone else does it, I'm always ready to make a fool of myself. :)http://konost.com/?page_id=7182Yes there is. Now I'm just questioning the placement.
The AF assist lamp on my X-E1 is in the same location and it was easy to learn not to cover it. The Fuji X100T viewfinder dynamically changes the framing and focusing box to account for parallax, this should do that as well.
Yes, if you are not interested in a rangefinder then you should buy something else.
What is this... a macro lens for ants?
Out of all the Fujis I have used, only the X-Pro does this.
Marty4650: Am I the only one who sees this mock up as a copy of the Leica T camera styling?
It sure looks a lot more like a Leica T than it does a Leica M camera.
I see it, but I also see inspiration taken from Sony and Samsung. It has a circular viewfinder eyepiece like a Leica M and Fuji X-Pro.
