I won’t buy any, although I got through a few rolls back in the day, It was good in its time but things have moved on. I miss doing black and white print, not enough to resurrect the darkroom. which is full of hassle. but colour slides not so much, not interactive and crafty like print, you send the roll away and slides come back, you project across the room to bore your neghbours with over long presentation of your family expeditions.

A choice indicative of the case that therefore is no Camera of the year, Love Leica but it’s classic 50’s design and functionality can hardly be the significant photographic tool of the year, particularly say verses the latest Samsung and Apple devices. which i would see as the modern equivilant in terms of the impact. (and today they are evolutionary)

This year if not the Sony A9 it’s only a better A7 after all, there is no camera of the year.

Smug achademics, somone convince me why we pay $100k per year for such. Wouldn’t we be better spending that saving say 10,000+ starving children

Tourlou: For a technology to be a game changer, it has to be within the reach of the people. Even the best technology will be a fail if no one can afford it.

Domestic affordability is not required for game changing technology, clearly large engineering, mass production, robotics gas turbine and rocket science might be regarded thus.
I think Mr Forbes uses a little hyperbole in order to make the point that this camera allows a higher level of image quality, dynamic range and tone interpretation, than was previously possible using digital photography, given the uniqueness of the product we should allow him that ahead of any direct experience or detailed technical comparison

Applicable to any premium or luxury product, to the Humans who do all the effort to make such a product possible and existent, it is worth it in order to feed there own children and have a home, is that enough?

My 124G is spinning in its grave ( actually it isn’t because it still working after about 40 years)

Just shareware the algorithms that are used. no need to write a line of code.

Androole: Whoa, a 200mm/f2, that's bonkers.

Fuji really thinks that there are enough X-series buyers willing to spend $5000+ for an APS-C lens?

And serious question, what do you use it for, too long for portrait not long enough for wildlife?

Although I am with the it needs an articulated screen and IBIS crowd, The more i consider it it seems like a nice little rig, a keeper if the interface is intelligently implemented. There are few circumstances for me that it it isn't enough camera, and the trad implimentaion of exposure control, the lack of a faux pentaprism the low key simplified design I find appealing. we know this sensor and Fuji's lens line up is awesome.

It looks great, But what Fuji have here is a cheap to manufacture camera for smartphone graduates, They will be amazed by the upgrade in picture quality, it leaves off a load of stuff you don't need most of the time to make great pictures like swivel screen.I think in use the joy stick and touch screen will be more intuitive and usable than the buttons and pad we are used to. a puny close to the lens Flash makes horrid loooking pictures and is not used much when you have modern large sensors and stabilised or fast lenses, I would not miss it.

But it's the wrong price, I would see this as nearer to 500 bucks than a thousand it would only be killer at that price if bundled with kit zoom lens or for with "change" with 23mm F2, also Fuji will have to bite the stabilised sensor built at some point.

Nikoncanonfan: Don't like increased touch control, lack of flash, being made in China, lack of stabilisation no thanks

I remember the sort of rhetoric levelled agaised Made in china (cheap construction low qualify) being said of Japanese manufacturing 40 years ago.
Even cheap brand free Chinese electronics i'm buying for a few quid is of decent quality these days, Premium branded smart phones we pay 700+ quid for have been manufactured in China for years. "Chinese" is not a metric for quality.

FodgeandDurn: If Sony, Nikon, Canon etc could learn one thing from Olympus (and Fuji/Pana) - put two control dials on your entry enthusiast cameras. You shouldn't have to 'graduate' to a 'semi-pro' body to be able to control (for example) aperture and shutter speed at the same time. You have to respect what Olympus have done here, they really haven't withheld anything from the package.

Bearing in mind the that camea manufacturers want you to upgrade it makes perfect sense.

In reply to:

attomole: The Canon 5D was allready around when the D700 came along, so Nikon where doing a bit of catch up really at this part of the Market. In some ways the D3 is the last time Nikon were as disruptive with a product WRT the D850.

Which I think it is, the best product introduction since the D3 for Nikon ( assuming the product meet the promise of the specs and very early reviews)

For sure it outgunned it in some regards but 5D broke th door down on full frame on full frame the 5Dmk II added full frame video. I had a D200 at around that time but i was blown away having borrowed and having seen the results from and used a 5D.

My point is not which was the better camera but that It that the D3 was the camera that changed expectations of what A full frame DSLR should do not the D700. which was more derivitive.

On article Nikon D850 Review (2114 comments in total)

What is nice is that Nikon made the best darn all-round DSLR they could, the recent D500 and D5 are both competition, but looks like the specs have not been brain damaged in some way so as not to compromise the market position of there own related products.

I like, but mostly "printed" a touch high key for my taste
