New Fujis impressions and some lenses
Aug 24, 1999 at 04:00 GMTFrom one of my "anonymous sources" comes the following impressions on the new Fuji MX2900 and MX1500. And news of add-on lenses for the MX2700 and MX2900.
Fuji will be distributing complementary lenses for their cameras:
MX2700: a 1.5x Tele which will transform the MX2700 into a 52mm fixed lens
MX2900: a wide angle lens which transforms the camera into 28-84mm instead of the standard 35-105mm.
My sources impressions of each (of the new) cameras:
MX2900: A little bulky and not enough "SLR", the addition of the wide angle lens makes the camera feel more like a "professional tool", when the additional lens is attached it has a small click which blocks the viewfnider so you can only use the LCD. The control panels are easy to use and overall the camera is comfortable.
