Walker Truly: Hasselblad also has Ming Thein on its development team. That could make a huge difference going forward.

He certainly works hard to project a sense of intelligence, but tbh I just don’t see it in his content. I bought his travel photography video but have never been able to wade through the self indulgent waffle and actually finish it. Fancy trying to ‘educate us’ about which side of the plane to sit on......

Clavewifi: If you care for IQ and size, get a used Rx1r (II)...IMHO, Fuji's limitations are quite remarkable compared with the Sony

Almost as remarkable as your post. Just to gently remind you that the Sony costs nearly 3x as much as the Fuji. Completely different cameras

Paul JM: Nope
MFT is just some weird little idea that came and went years ago
Great sensor size for video but not enough sensor real estate for stills

All the praise for its size but it weighs nearly a kilogram. You could opt for a Fuji xh1 with battery grip, get nearly double the sensor size and the Fuji still weighs a third less and costs half as much
Madness

GodSpeaks: Still no 1 inch sensor. Pass.

Mark b really ? You can buy a Fuji XF10 with apsc sensor for about 400 so why would a waterproof body take the price to 1k ?

jackspra: How good is the 4K on the tg5.

Fair, just fair. It is the only tiny sensor I own apart from the Mavic, and I think the Mavic produces much nicer images. I bought the TG5 to take to the beach, on boats etc etc, but have been very disappointed with the quality of the stills, and the video is just fair. Personally, I regret the purchase. I cant really live with the limitations of the tiny sensor, despite the otherwise excellent package

Paul JM: Was super interested but at the price point can’t go past the Fuji xf10
Despite the ridiculous review by DPR labelling it one of the worst cameras of last year the Fuji is a gem and much cheaper than the Ricoh

A few comments in response. Those who criticise the autofocus have perhaps been watching the DPR TV review last year. There has been a firmware update since then. I dont have any problems with the autofocus, and have seen nothing to suggest that the focus is better on the Ricoh. In relation to it being quiet, not sure if Graham is aware of the electronic shutter on the XF. It is pretty hard to hear..... And yes, it is defeatured compared to the x70, but it is now smaller. It is a camera designed to do one thing, to put the largest possible sensor in the smallest possible body at an accessible price point. And that it does perfectly. If you are looking for something for sports, video etc, it is not for you. But if you want maximum IQ in a pocket sized package, it is fantastic

Vivid1: The samples are simply stunning - Canon is making more and more of a statement with mirrorless..
And for the condescending, jeering SPreview trolls : Canon, more than anyone, knows the camera race is a marathon, not a sprint - wait and see... :-)

I don’t use Sony. You guessed wrong
Fuji now
And not a fan boy
Just works for me, small rugged, great to use. Excellent lenses and well structured system

I was a canon user for years. Bought an EOS 630 in 1989, and have owned a 10d, the original 5d, then the mark 2, a 7d and now 5dsr with an extensive collection of lenses and underwater housings. But I am slowly trading out. Mirrorless is clearly the future, canon were just too slow getting going and my allegiance has shifted long ago. I don’t see anything inspiring in the R and can’t honestly see any Canon product that I have coveted in many years. This lens looks great, but 1.2 kg for a medium Tele prime ? The whole world is moving towards gear that is lighter and easier to carry and canon produce this brick ?
Even the Fuji medium format 110 mm prime weighs less than this

No thanks

Hard to win a marathon when you start the race 8 years after the front runners 😳

'the plastic body'......
FFS, its carbon fibre, like the race cars. Tough and light weight. It is a bonus, not a detraction from the package

stevo23: Now everyone's going to start copying the X-Pro2. Geez.

Not an ILC. No hybrid viewfinder.
How is this camera anything like an xpro 2 ?

BWJunkie: No big deal. Just pack the batteries in your carry-on luggage, as I always do with my camera gear.

It's the right call by the US agencies and I appreciate their due diligence to ensure our safety.

Nice idea, but multiple airlines around the world are now strictly enforcing a maximum carry-on weight of 7 kg. By the time you pack a camera and a laptop as well as a couple of lenses, that doesn't leave much wiggle room for batteries.

4REEE: When a 6K or 8K version of this comes out, I'll get me one.

With the codecs on this camera do you have any idea how massive the files from this camera would be if it were 8k ?

User9362470513: Boy that is a seriously ugly camera.

Light weight carbon fibre body, wide enough to use with large hands, 5 inch touch screen, and you feel it is ugly. It is a peach, a fine example of elegant functional simplicity.
Perhaps you should post a head shot of yourself for comparison

Amateurs photographers, or posters ?

Reilly Diefenbach: D850 at ISO 64 just as good.

Richard that comparison review is between an 810 and a Pentax, not the Fuji, and it centres on DR only. We all know that there is more to a camera than dynamic range.
The move of manufacturers to produce 'affordable' MF cameras is to be applauded. It is a pity to see it downplayed on a site like DPR by narrowing the advantage to DR only.
