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.

The X10 and XF1 are EXR cameras through and through with all the attendant complexities and edge and noise artifacts that implies. I have always been willing to accept it with the F550EXR (and soon the F770EXR that has shipped today), but I am not so sure that I would be willing to accept it on the more expensive cameras.

I can ignore the multiple choices of settings on EXR camera and so far lucky with lens decentered problem (I bought 2 F200 and 1 F300, tested about 8 of these cameras before taking cameras home, so far only my first F200 had lens decentered problem) but it is the artifacts which is a little annoying, Fuji cameras I used (F30/F40/F47/F100/F200/F300) never look good at 100% because of the designs of the sensors.

I have a poor man's solution, if I finally want to buy the XF-1, I will wait for the price drop

As for L size, DR400 still requires 400 ISO and that is simply unacceptable to me ...

Thanks for your hints, if I finally buy the X-F1, I will go to your blog to look for usage opinions.
