Re: HS50 vs X-S1



I spoke with a Fuji rep. at the Ottawa camera show and he doubts there will ever be a xs-2! Kind of implied that sales were not so great and that it was too much of a niche market to warrant an update.


I got a very similar response from Fuji NZ as well, hence my other thread asking if the HS50 is going to be the XS-1 replacement.

I've never thought for an instant that they would do an XS-2, price alone makes it prohibitive when compared to good entry level DSLR's with a half decent kit lens, not to mention its poor IQ compared to an entry level DSLR. The XS-1 could have been a great camera if they had stepped it up to 4/3, but with all its faults it was destined to be a failure. Fuji outlets here struggle to sell any at all, they are just too expensive and underwhelming for the money you pay.
