  • For your information, I had heard that the workflow with X-Trans is about 30% slower than with Bayer. Not huge but not neglectible. I guess X-Trans needs an extra work.
  • Why do you take these references, it is well known that there are many complaints with Sony APS-C FE lens. Instead, I would choose these references: Nikon 16-80 https://www.ephotozine.com/article/n ...
  • The x5 zoom is an interesting compromise between versatility and IQ with the lens not being too heavy nor big. This could be my only lens for travel. It is also the most wanted lens with Sony FF now.
  • You refer to physics but a f2.8-4 lens is not supposed to be much bigger than a f4 lens.. The maximum aperture size is reached at long focal length.
  • Replied in IBIS
    No sure I want OIS if they confirm the future cameras will have IBIS (next year maybe) ? The lens could be cheaper, lighter  with better IQ.
  • I am with you of course ! It should have good IQ (the same level as 18-55) over its focal range and not too big, that is why I don't want constant f2.8 I may select my next purchase on this ...
  • I agree well, I would say existent but not really important. Besides, a cleaner image comes always with the cost of a shallower dof, and I think you can get shallow enough dof with APS-C. So not ...
  • I am not debating the different ISO standard chosen by Fuji but the clean images you refer to at ISO1600 and over are in fact, for a Nikon user, ISO1000 and over. 2/3 stop is a difference, With ...
  • Not really, It would be like saying that watching a movie on TV, iPhone  or a theater changes completely  dof. You don't really need to consider print size when you shoot.  Print size and viewing ...
  • HP1999 compares the Fuji with his D750 which is FF, and the Fuji can not match with it in terms of high ISO performance. Thsee posts are partly misleading because the Fuji ISO is overstated ...
  • Hi, I do not miss the ISO dial. For me this dial is almost useless, I don't need a dial for the least significant parameter (compared to aperture and shutter speed). I use auto-iso in aperture ...
  • Replied in ISO v EV
    The bucket analogy is the most common and very widely spread !. A quick look on Internet will show plenty of links. One of the best link: http://www.cambridgeincolour.com/tutorials/camera-exposure.htm
  • I guess you mean X-T10 here Same sensor, no difference in IQ.. There may be differences in the studio scene comparison because it is focused differently  A recent example is the Sony A9 which ...
  • Replied in ISO v EV
    You think it was a deliberate decision, this is quite different. Gizzz . .. Do I have to answer to this ? Avoid inventing supposed facts, debates, experts. None of them exist . Do not confuse ...
  • Replied in ISO v EV
    Good point, you make a clear distinction between changing ISO and EC. If you shoot manual with/without auto-iso, both methods are quite close, EC will change ISO  but still it is not equivalent. If ...
  • Replied in ISO v EV
    Their are many wrong facts written. This one is just an example. Why somebody can write on forum things like : it was a deliberate decision from Fuji.. This is simply not true, there is absolutely ...
  • Replied in ISO v EV
    It has only advantages be able to use EC in manual + auto-iso. Why do you invent a debate that has never existed ? The only member referring to a debate in the past is... you !!!. What ?  How can ...
  • Replied in ISO v EV
    Another interesting use of EC is well AE-L, Even after locking exposure (well, metering to avoid ambiguity), you can alter the settings. And you see the exposure settings in live without having to ...
  • Replied in ISO v EV
    Sorry to contradict you again but this is plain wrong. There has never been debate, EC must change ISO, it was clearly a limitation with some cameras (not only Fuji). There is not a single argument ...
  • This is not exactly the way I responded to you but you changed it a bit. Correcting an inexact information is a good thing. The problem is more with people not admitting any errors. It is a clever ...
