Re: DP Review publishes review of Fuji X100 (2ND THREAD)

I don't think I've ever enjoyed a camera so much at the beginning.

It will be a while before I know it well.

But at this point, I will not trust it with anything that moves, and for any shot I do not mind missing.

At this point I look on it as a p&s with silent shutter, adequate, but not state of the art, low light capability, very good, but not state of the art, IQ, fits in a big pocket.

For many photographers, its slowness to wake up will cost many shots.

Let's be realists. Bigger and more expensive cameras are not stupid mistakes. They do what this one cannot.

And, in my heart I'm disloyal, with a wandering eye. If the NEX 7 and Zeiss lens, or any other camera, including a mirrorless FF sensor, perform better, in whole or in part, I'm in the market.

In the photography market, consumers are the masters, and the manufacturers are our servants. If they want to be paid --The feast is still young! Bring us more wine!

(And better software, please. Software is not an afterthought. Just as the lens is an extension of the human eye, software is an extension of the human brain.)
