Jefftan: Even Sony APS-C may be threaten.
Fuji X mount clearly win on lens line

now a $600 camera get 24MP. If one don't need 4k or shoot sports
Fuji-XA3 become very attractive with the availability of all X mount lens like 18mm F2 pancake

Sony E-mount lens line is pretty much dead and current one are average at best
for myself I will rethink if I am going to buy a A6300 or not

Now the entry price to Fuji 24MP is becoming much lower but I am almost sure this 24 MP not the same copper sensor in A6300

this must be the old one in A6000 with high ISO penalty of maybe 1/2 to 1 stop

If part of the landscape is slightly out of focus then another part is in focus. How much detail is in that in-focus part? A soft kit lens is a soft kit lens and Sony's kit lens is not the best.

straylightrun: Why can't Fujifilm make this a pancake lens like the Canon 22mm f/2? Is it because they intentionally made it big so as to not cannibalize their x100 line?

The Canon 22, much like Fuji's 27mm only has one ring so they can both be smaller.

cosinaphile: the 27mm 2.8 purports to be the pancake lens ... but without an aperture ring i will not buy it

Purport nothing, the 27mm is a pancake lens. No one claimed this 23 is a pancake. FWIW, I enjoy the 27 on my Pro2 more than my Pro1 because of its front cool dial.

notnaff: how fast will this focus on the other fuji cameras?

thanks

Its supposed to be a bit faster than the 35mm f2 so check for reviews on that lens.

Jefftan: for 28mm u can digital zoom in a bit to make it 35mm
trust me really no big deal for today 24 MP sensor

u can't do the reverse and make 35mm become 28mm

You can if you take the photo from further away. :D

Andrei C: I'm really thinking to move to Fuji because of this wide lenses. Sony only have the 10-18 F4 . Fuji has 14mm F2.8 , 16mm F1.4 , 18 F2, 16-50 F2.8 and so on. Really nice!

True but the 10-24 extends into normal range with 24mm, to get that you'd need two Sony lenses.

Sure but how much of that is a mediocre lens?

Why do you need confident AF for landscape? Do you normally have trouble tracking trees and mountains?

Osa25: Or you could just pick up an NX500 on closeout....and avoid this water-treading masquerading as innovation.

To be fair, if you only plan on buying a couple of lenses, maybe two zooms and a prime or two, then there is no reason not to get the NX. Heck the money you save buying the NX can get you a spare backup body.

noflashplease: With only contrast detection, the X-A3 won't be any autofocus speed demon. However, it's worth remember that the X-A(x) series has sold well specifically because of its conventional Bayer sensor. If only Fujifilm had dropped the X-Trans sensor concept for their entire product line?

What does color have to do with it? Do you think someone buying the brown or black camera cares more about the CFA than someone buying the pink one?

Gesture: I am glad that $700 plus lens is affordable.

When included as part of a kit the price is much lower.

teos: X-T10 or X-E2S ??

@teos: Decide what is most important to you:
Tilting screen or not.
Center viewfinder or not.
Tiltable flash or not.
Physical drive dial or not.

maxnimo: The only issue I have with Fuji is those annoying film simulation modes that I have no use for. Why can't they have a normal, neutral, true to life, realistic mode that preserves true color, saturation and contrast? If I want a goofy, altered version of my photo I'll change it in post. I don't want to constantly think about which film simulation mode to use before every shot. Please give me a NORMAL mode so I won't have to mess with RAW all the time!

You can save film sim combined with highlights, shadows, saturation, color balance, white balance, etc.

Just shoot and make changes until you are happy with the results.

You can adjust the color variables, like color and saturation, to taste and access them via the Q menu.

King YONG: I wonder if the to be announced Fuji X-A3 would incorporate most of the controls and AF of the X-E2S. I can do without the EVF and with the 27mm lens, it will make a nice portable backup for my XT10.

That depends on whether the A3's sensor has PDAF. I do wonder if it will move away from the PASM dial to the same control set as the other cameras

Contra Mundum: Interesting physiological phenomenon: weird one-trick-pony niche products often generate a small but aggressive cult-like following.

You could write a paper on the psychology behind internet-only experts.

By standing on the Shoulders of Giants: Fujifilm seemed like they have used the SAME sensor on like 5 dozens types of their camera.

Ignoring the XA1 and X100, the first-gen of the sensor was 16MP contrast-only; the second-gen had PDAF; and the third-gen is the new 24MP sensor. But you're right, they do use the same sensor on a lot of cameras.

PeaceKeeper: 5 page review for a firmware update(be fair, that's what it is)... Interesting. I suppose the material was already written, so, why not? :-p

Still waiting to pounce on a used X-E2 for a backup body...

The X-E2 is one generation newer than the Pro1.

There is no user controllable setting that can get rid of the noise reduction and waxy skin tone problem in JPGs.
