Re: Fuji XPro/Xtrans a mistake?

Making and testing new sensor cost incredible amount of money. If there is no benefit they would scrape that idea years ago. Why to burn money on something that does not deliver? Just for publicity sake? They are not stupid.

A company can easily produce a publicity gimmick very cheap way, brainstorm a new cool name of your processor like "SuperZ V2", most camera companies does this when they have no real invention at hand for new models.

Saying that the X-trans sensor is a mistake and that it doesn't deliver is an unfounded and worthless argument. The Xpro-1's jpegs are fantastic. There is no argument there from any side. In low light, it puts the competition to shame. If the jpegs are this good, then you can assume that one would be able to get just as good results from the RAW files. Perhaps not now, but once everyone has their algorithms right, I would expect nothing less. Given that, I'd say the X-trans sensor has already delivered and is a success. Having RAW support will only make it better.
