I just sold a Leica M6 and Summi f2 50mm. I bought them brand new.In December, I bought an X100 and now I get better shots, more keepers and better quality. Plus it's a better street camera.
I'm sure this lens will be great in conjunction with the B&W body, but give me a D800 and a sharp 16-35 zoom any day if we are looking at resolution capability.
Brad121: I've gone off the idea of spending big bucks for this shoddy piece of work.
Black 'Band Aid'. What a disgrace.
Great use of color, composition and shadow.
88SAL: What an odd issue... Thanks for looking into it DPR
The issue for me is the response from Fuji. X = better or pro performance. X100 users are also miffed at lack of Marketing/ Technical response to their manual focus issues. The whole X deal may flop if they do not do what is right.
JackM: I'm out.
I agree with ajo43. I love the FujiX100, but Fuji needs to leave less of a blood trail from early adopters when it comes to manual focus issues and software. They can get it right with proper CUSTOMER focus not just great design.
I am a Nikon pro body user and was looking forward to a lighter alternative. I was excited by this camera when I first saw it (I am a fan of the old Minox 35 film system with the minimalist carbon fiber type bodies). But for the price, this is not a competitive quality image taker. It does some things that my Fuji X100 does not do, but I feel that this is just a very poorly positioned product strategy when it comes to price, image quality and aesthetics. Does the pro side of the business talk to the amateur side of the business? They should, and they may learn something.
