villagranvicent: what's the point of his collection? Does he have some historical pieces of photographic equipment or simply buys whatever crap he finds at the local flea market?

...as if he would need a point... ;-)

Mike FL: A6000 is sharper than X-PR02 while both lens are in the very much same price range and same FL.

Look and try to read all the text:

Thanks David. Gonna keep that in mind.
I find RT very confusing. So I'm not sure if I'll be using it much...
Would love to try Iridient but I'd need a Mac or hack first...
But you're right, let's not start another converter talk here.
Have a good night

A6000 is only sharper in dpreview's ACR outputs. If you use e.g. Raw Therapee as Raw Editor you will get quite different results in which the X-Pro2 is on par with the A6000 concerning sharpness. (love both cameras so please no bashing)

For those interested, I made a quick test with the dpreview files:

Currently I am also testing the X-Pro2 against my old X-Pro1 with raw therapee. It is really, really hard to see any differences in image "sharpness". I am impressed with what my old X-Pro1 can do. Thinking of returning the X-Pro2....

ruicarv79: If only Sony could make cameras as good looking as Fuji... :)

that's the point @ruicarv79 ... never underestimate the importance of pleasure in grabbing, holding, looking at and of course shooting your camera which all adds to the experience...

This is what Fuji cameras embody to me and what I am missing in Sony cameras...(thinking of getting a used A7r though...)

I prefer a camera which I love to take and hold in my hands anytime over a feature-packed camera that can do absolutely everything I possibly want to but does not deliver the same shooting experience ...

In reply to:

whatta: In general I wonder why a dedicated camera is not better in almost all aspects than a phone.

https://www.apple.com/iphone/compare/
1080p 60 fps
720p 240 fps

10fps still (without autofocus)

timelapse and gsp as already mentioned.

these are missing from these canons.

I also wonder why both are not capable of recording 1080/60fps ...
..and there are quite some successful pros only shooting with a phone ;-)

Kurt_K: Interesting interview. I think I would seriously consider a Fuji if it wasn't for the X-trans sensor. I see people on here who say that the smudgy looking files are down to poor conversions through Lightroom but, honestly, the files I've seen from Capture One conversions don't look any better.

Kurt_K, have you seen x trans raw file conversions of iridient developer? How would you rate them?

Jogger: i forget who makes it. but, there is a company in the US that buys Nikon 14-24/2.8 lenses and completely rehouses them in a cine body.

maybe that's the one?
