wats0n: Pricey for smart phone quality images....yikes...

I kinda agree with @watson. The images lack the tonality and color separation one would expect from a modern sensor. These might not be smartphone looking, but I think it’s fair to say that even much smaller sensors can deliver better resolution, color, and dynamics.

snapa: Olympus has always made very high quality lenses. The problem is, the sensors they have been using are extremely old and outdated, especially the 16mp sensor. How many sensor upgrades have they made (besides going to the 20mp sensor) since year? You can have the greatest lenses on earth, but if you sensor can't take advantage of them, well... what's the point?

Oh yeah, have you seen the size & weight of the most recent OM-D E-M1X! It's bigger and more expensive than most FF cameras!

They are behind, but to be honest the image output (for me personally) looks more attractive than Sony at least.

wats0n: Fear mongering and panic are 1000x worse than the virus itself. Get your information from direct sources such as the CDC and ignore social and mainstream media outlets.

Considering the CDC has contradicted Trump I think it’s safe to say they are acting as their own independent entity. On the other hand our media has politicized the virus because it’s an election year.

barrym1966: The a7iii has a headphone socket, shoots better video and photos and costs more or less the same, i don't understand this camera

Considering there is currently a mass migration from Sony to Canon and Fuji, I think the better question might be why does Sony still have a future ?

Adamant: Here we go again with the Fuji concern trolling.

Didn't we get "X-Pro3 Seems Like a Missed Opportunity" last month?

The truth is 98% of the people who buy these cameras do not use video. It’s a very tiny market but on the web the echo chamber is significant.

mferencz: Sony has stepped up into world class optics rivaling the best Nikon and Canon can create. 24gm, 135gm … Clearly they want the 'small mounter conspiracy types' out there to see at both 20 and 24 they can make them smaller and better.

Mike, most people are praising and obsessed with the new Canon RF gems and F2 zooms which blow Sony out of the water. Nikon has a few beautiful gems like the 50 Z which is earning accolades across the web as one of the best 50 ever produced. YouTube pros are obsessed with Nikon, Canon, and Fuji. Hardly any mention of Sony these days.

Mike what world do you live in ? Most Sony folks have to use adapters to use great glass by other brands. Sony has a few gems, but mostly duds and some gems were way over hyped or over priced.

That’s a bold statement, Sony’s optics are not surpassing Canon and Nikon optics by any measure and in fact I would argue as of late it’s quite the opposite.

TheWhiteDog: Very impressive!!! I love my Fuji 14mm f2.8 but this blows it away, better in every way and it's much faster. The same price too though I got my Fuji on sale. Well done SONY!

Blows it away how ? I haven’t seen any evidence ?

Ixoye: This will be a killer camera, great work Canon.

Sony is dying. Go into some of the most popular photog groups and Sony folks are either switching back to Canon or Fuji.

In reply to:

Ben Herrmann: OK - is it me, or what? I realize that what we view images on - our monitor setups - may vary quite a bit. But these images seemingly have a hazy (or light foggy-like) veil to them. They don't have that dynamic, you-are-there feel to them. There's nothing special about these and I'm a long-time Olympus user. Of course, as has been demonstrated in the past, initial samples can be misleading. But for now, many of these samples look like they could have come from an inexpensive P&S camera.

Yeah I was wondering if lens was fogged ?

I am sure it’s a great camera, but based on these image samples it’s very poor quality.

On article Which is best for you: the Fujifilm X-T200 or X-T30? (135 comments in total)
In reply to:

samhain: Great comparison article guys.
I just wish the X-T30 had a Bayer sensor. Hopefully one of these days they put a Bayer sensor in a higher end model.

Personally prefer XTRANS myself, something about the colors and tones I like better over bayer.

snapa: I think it's a smart move to let other SW developers do work for them (Sony) for free. Just like making new and impressive lenses for them, like Sigma, Tamron, etc... The more resources, engineers, SW developers Sony can have working for them (for FREE), the better they are. That is only one of the reasons that makes the E mount the best there is today.
Canon and Nikon could (or should) learn are real lesson from Sony! Anyone remember what happened to IBM, when they tried to keep everything to themselves?

Um not sure if you know this or not, but Sony has a deep history of failures because they wanted to be proprietary..

The fake is called the Gary Thong. It’s not as durable and it stretches..

I have to wonder why so many FF users have to chime in about a system they probably do not own. I mean it seems like a clear case of Fuji envy...

In reply to:

ekaton: Fuji trying to pull an Olympus. Sensor too tiny, lens way to heavy and bulky; FF with f1.8 or f1.4 is the way to go.

Yeah had FF and switched to Fuji. Image quality is better than my former FF and I don’t see any big differences in DoF.

In reply to:

hetedik: Why is this new design not optimised for mirrorless cameras' flange distance???
After all, the original was not for SLR-s either.
I don't want to use adapters, and todays most widely-used lens mount is the Sony FE. Nikon F and Canon EF was yesterday, not even Canon develops more EF lenses.

Sony FE most widely used are you on something ? Regardless of current sales it would take 10 years to for Sony to replace the number of Canon and Nikon DSLRs still in use and that’s only if Sony continues its FF trend which is highly unlikely.

In reply to:

PPierre: I don't think trying to compete with Full Frame is a good idea, neither for Fuji in APS-C nor for Oly in m43 : APS-C and m43 have their own merits, and these monster lenses negate them pretty much.

Now, to be fair also, there's not much that is lacking in Fuji's APS-C system (if there's anything missing at all), so they can have some fun and release this kind of lenses.

PS : I would love it if some company would revive the APS-H sensors

Fuji doesn’t have to compete with FF, it produces better image quality that a majority of current FF systems currently on the market.

In reply to:

vynz: If you are interested in a lens like this I dare say you are in the wrong system. Just buy a full frame body and a 1.4 or 1.8 lens. You aren't even saving any weight with this massive thing.

I disagree I switched from FF to Fuji crop. It’s not about lens speed its also about the quality of bokeh which is better then my former FF body.
