Imager of: Wake me up when it’s 16k at 240fps. I also need at least 20 stops of dynamic range and 30 stop ibis. Thanks.

You forgot 8 card slots because apparently that’s the standard for “pro” nowadays (in this forum).

What a great comparison. Awesome work. Now throw in the GRiii please. It will be very interesting I guess.

Let me summarize the issues with this cam:
- No mention of dual card slots, I know someone who know someone who...
- No IBIS, come on, even the tiny GR III has that
- No built-in flash, at this price point, i expect it to be a default
- No eye AF based on AI
- I wish this was full frame. You know the FF magic, FF>MF, also, FF > crop

In conclusion, I was so waiting for this cam but decided to stick with my iPhone after reading the specs. Patiently waiting for the next gen.

D_Gunman: Came here to see people who don't want a Fuji camera complaining about a Fuji camera. Not disappointed.

I saw no IBIS and first thing I thought of was d*mn, the trolls are coming in full force. Haha. Im surprised no one complaints about 1 card slots tho. Because obviously every “serious photographer” needs at least 4 card slots to survive.

Thoughts R Us: For most people, I would advocate to choose the camera they will enjoy using the most. There's that old saying, the best camera is the one you have with you. Well, if one is going to have a dedicated camera beyond a smartphone, then the best camera is the one you will actually use the most. Not only will you enjoy it the most, but by using it the most you will develop your photography skills the most, and that will make more difference than small differences in specs.

So if possible, try these cameras out, hold them, see which one you actually like using. That will be the one.

And the camera I've enjoyed the most is the Fuji X70, which is sadly unlikely to be updated.

Hmm. Other companies go retro by design but Fuji goes retro by function. I really don't understand why they don't create a fully articulated screen so customer can choose what they want as default. Even for a niche camera, forcing customers to "focus on photo" with a tiny screen is such a stupid excuse. Technology development should make people achieve result easier not harder.

I guess the only sensible reason for Fuji to do this is that they want to create a loyal cult fan base (i.e. Leica-ish) by having a really unique product focusing more on body design than specs under the premise of "pure photography experience". Whether it will work or not is tbd. Leica is Leica and Im not sure Fuji' brand power is there yet.

Gesture: These modern products are being over-engineered. Even the average iPhone user doesn't need (or likely want or know how to use) the capabilities.

Lol. Another internet expert pulling an opinion as fact. "Even the average iPhone user doesn't need (or likely want or know how to use) the capabilities." - did all 1 billion "average" Iphone users messaged you saying they dont need this feature?

Very well-balanced review. Im surprised the Panasonic is that good given its the company's first FF camera ever. I'm sticking with Fuji but the FF mirrorless is getting more and more attractive.

Canon is a giant company so the fact that the CEO goes public with this view means it has already been baked in all of the company's strategies for the next 3-5 years. This is no surprise given even the smartphone market is declining.

Sadly this means we will not see anything exciting from them soon but tbh, the cameras today are so good I don't see any reason to upgrade at all. More pixel and FPS would force me to invest in better computer, better lenses, online storage and time which I cant justify given that this is just one hobby of mine. I think in a few years the market will be more segmented with more affordable mass-produced Canikons & Sonys mirrorless in the range of $800-$1500 (similar to canon rebel series atm) and more expensive more niche high margin stuffs like Medium Format with 100K ISO and 8K video for commercial & pro works.

They had me at AI. I'm sure it will be pretty much useless at this point but at least Sony is bringing new things to this segment where most of improvements from one generation to the next so far is just adding higher specs.

Wow. I use 2 Fuji bodies but 've been waiting for a FF mirror-less from Canon and Nikon, But now looking at this cam I dont have any doubt that I will stay with Fuji. Wonderful features an IQ. My next cam would definitely be an Xpro3.

Great news and not a surprise at all. Fuji has reignited my love for photography, really. I stopped taking photos for almost 2 years as I didnt have time for it and the thought of walking around with a stupid big and ugly camera turned me off. But as soon as I tried the XE2, I was in love again. I now have the 2 Fujies and 3 lenses and I love them all.

I tend to believe the people who make a living by making videos and the ones who have fund for a $50K know what they are doing. These youtubers are getting boring, always try to be smarter than everyone else but then create pretty much nothing in life.

This is probably the dumbest test Ive seen on DPreview, these guys tried so hard to be "scientifically innocent" by using a mode strictly for static objects to shoot people walking, moving cars, long exposure... and claim that the result is weird. lol.

I guess the next thing to happen is a meeting with Panasonic PR team and another click bait article to explain the pixel shift use cases. Everybody wins. LOL

For the first time on this forum I feel confident to say that my phone takes better photos. And I meant it.

The funny thing about these fake "art" is that you take them out of context and suddenly they all become so ridiculous, even for people who used to rave about them just to prove they have a taste.

This lens opens my eyes to the real art of photography. My whole life was lie.

PS: any one selling fuji xpro 2 + lens kit to buy this real-art piece let me know. Lol

Bought the G7 for a friend when we both started to explore photography. He was flattered with it.

In reply to:

panther fan: I'm going against the trend and say the Dxomark is often the only source that you have for comparing all the different lenses, cameras and phones out there. You can trash talk them all you want but they offer reliable data and there is simply no alternative.
So thank you Dxomark for your work.

yeah right. As long as they rank your brand higher they will still be reliable. Haha
