Re: X-S1 giving my DSLR a run for the money

I ask myself this question: what percentage of images an amateur photographer makes that need iso 6400?


Kind of my point I guess. For a difference of $1600 between these 2 kits, with the Fuji having twice the focal length (375mm equivalent vs. 624mm equivalent), if you can shoot at a decently low ISO, I am very impressed with the Fuji. I don't expect the fuji to replace my DSLR since I do a lot of lower light wildlife shooting, but with a little extra thought and care (tripod etc.) the X-S1 could in fact replace my DSLR for my requirements.
