As for DR400 and ISO400 poor combination will show odd looking artifacts (looked like small crosses, but rotated 45 degree), I tried to see for myself once after being told by Hugo to avoid such combination. If memory served me right, after several months, Hugo told me he had fixed the DR to 200% on his F200 for most shootings, but I was too lazy to change my Auto DR setting and just leave it there. F200exr is not an enthusiast camera, only 2 apertures, 1 is even achieved by using ND filter and small orifice, imagine a bulldog with 2 teeth only, 1 is artificial teeth not for bitting, how tough can it be?

They have three on the newer models and the last one is real. But so what ... real apertures add expense and with such small sensors there is no real DOF control anyway.

As for ISO400 DR400, only a pixel peeper cares, and since when is the 1/2" sensor meant for professional work?

I am an Initial Pixel Peeper, I only pixel peek when I first bought a camera and it never lasted more than 3 months. I am still using Auto DR and Auto ISO400 all the times in good light, seldom changed in the past 3+ years, lazy and F200 is a snap shot camera.

Real aperture is relatively expensive to make, but then it creates appealing star flare which some people like. For the F30, the aperture setting did affect image sharpness, I tested it before, though not by a big margin.

So I guess now M-size is no longer needed in newer Fuji cameras.

Agree, but I was referring to X-10 and X-F1, the sensor is well balanced in DR, Resolution and Noise department, making it a good alternate solution to the EXR sensor for Fujifilm.

Still the best general setting for every EXR camera in my opinion.
