In reply to:

SigmaChrome: Why is Fujifilm abandoning the X-Trans sensor? What now distinguishes Fuji from almost every other camera maker? Pretty well nothing.

it’s cheaper to make they take a stock part from sony I expect

tbcass: "The RX100 VI, with its 24-200mm equivalent lens, marks Sony's entry into the travel zoom sphere"

Since when does a camera have to be so small to be considered a "travel zoom". Personally I prefer to travel with larger superzoom cameras like the RX10vi and FZ1000.

I tend to agree, If you are travelling likey you would be inclined to take somthing bigger, an A6000 series and an extra lens. What this camera is an everyday cary EDC, this can go with you all the time

Not at all nostalgic for this. above 400 asa Film was not brilliant even with “full frame” 35mm. Cropping the film beyond that and the corresponding (non equivilance) shrinking of lens aperture didn’t do wonders for IQ. th miniaturisation and film handling was nice but 35 mm cameras could be made pocketable.

Point is it’s absolute free, there is some reasonable free support on line, The cost in my experience with linux is getting all the features to work with your hardware your files, peripherals on line services etc. likely this will take more than a little tinkering. not that Mac and Widows don’t have that, but normally it’s less

attomole: The problem for me is the name if it’s a raw image format it should be lossless. that the de compression should restore the orignal file.

Yes very funny.

iShootWideOpen: Here in the US, were not too far behind. Our orange dear leader considers the press, "enemy of the people." How long before we see something similar?

Always seemed to me that MSM has an right wing bias

I like what it does, not overcooked acceptably sharp in the middle, I can see where this lens would make sense, for a pro doing Family pics and possibly wedding personal event photography, 500 bucks on a lens for the odd picture in a set where doing / driving busness might be time better spent than messing around in PS

Sony must be astonished that they are on generation 3 of a device that is bound to be the future of mid to high end photography andy no other manufacturer has credibly reacted.

David610: Size mismatch. Huge/heavy lenses for small/light camera. Not exactly for hiking. Those 35mm, 50mm and 85mm were really needed. Tokina's 20mm f/2 FIrin AF makes more sense to me.

There are some smaller slower lenses available as well allready and zooms if you want to reduce your packing for travel.

Sony must be amazed that they are on thier 3rd génération of this type of (full frame ) camera which is quite obviously the future for pro and high end DSLR users, with no competition whatsoever.

Wil Helm: This is like a longtime explosure of a moth flying under a streetlight. You dont see a detailed Image of the insect, but a vague cloud of the flight paths it took during the Exposition Time. Is it a real Photography? Its a very blurred photography, but it is a photography.

Is I understnd the Ion trap creates a stable orbit based on electrostatic RF and DC fields, without knowing the specifics of the device I would expect that the ion is oscillating in space constrained by the electrostatic “force field “ the image in a sense is like a time exposure of a car driving around a trafic roundabout at night with the headlights on, taken from from space.

In reply to:

Kwick1: The lack of an exposure compensation dial is a deal-breaker for me. And a bigger grip, extra weight, but no larger battery? Why? Missed opportunity, in my opinion.

The exposure compensation is clearly displayed on the top plate and there are a couple of dials, so the lack of a dedicated dial for this does not seem a great loss particularly working with an electronic viewfinder.

Makes a compelling case for DSLR purchase, particularly with third party alternatives from Tamron, for the sort of photographers likely to buy a Fuji, this is to expensive

Nailed it Leica,
What is the rest of this industry thinking to miss this.
It will take Canon years of research to catch up on this upgrade, i'm not sure Nikon with ever recover

On article Have your say: Best high-end ILC of 2017 (169 comments in total)

Sony A7 III and Nikon 850 kick it out of the park, Sony shows us the future though, Fuji is my favorite hopefully the format will find some traction but I don't think it will as the sensor is not quite big enough to put clear water above the most developed full frame, and slightly bigger lenses means much bigger prices particularly chasing fast full frame F stop equivalency

More tricky this one, Sony filling out their lens range to fill obvious gaps, Tamron and Sigma poaching CaNikon sales by refining the classics, Fuji's buffing their line of oh so sharp but not quite equivalent lenses.
