Infared: No thanks. I will keep my poor-man's Leica. My PEN-F is much smaller, has AF, and great glass choices and, eh'hem....is way better looking, too! :-)

It all depends on who is driving, Chucko! :-)

The PEN also has incredible IBIS and Hi-Rez mode for capturing 80mp RAW files. Oh...and the PEN costs $5500 less than the M10. (How am I doing?) :-)

princecody: I could buy the new GH5, EM1 M2, 25mm Pro, & 12-100mm Pro for that price 🤔

The human eye can scarcely see the difference between 12bit and 14bit.

Are they providing this service so that we can avoid those "hotspots"? :-)

X-Pro II definitely looks better in the finish...but as all have mentioned below the GIANT scratch on the T-2 is anything but reassuring about the finish?... Is DPR trying to make a statement by showing the camera in that codition? I gotta wonder.....
Personally, I will keep my black PEN-F with my Oly 25mm f/1.2...(not a fan of the X-Trans...
But both Fuji graphites are beautiful, capable cameras.

Mariano Pacifico: Are the camera makers really really listening to us?

Wait...I thought hipsters shot film now and listened to vinyl?

Mariano Pacifico: Have you hipster ever noticed if lens is bundled to a body the lens performance is not good? They bundled it so they can get rid of it because they know some suckers would fall for it like hipsters should.

Hipsters prefer their image than cameras image.

Mariano...you would be surprised...some talented visual people are at times attracted to things that are visually pleasing...Can you imagine that?

In reply to:

Infared: Looks good on both bodies....but...Fuji should have chosen the 23mm f/1.4 instead of the f/2.0.
The X-Pro 2 with that lens does look extremely classy, tho! :-)

@legaceez
I'm not a Fuji shooter...but I always buy the fastest lenses that I can for the system that I am using, so I thought that was the premium lens...not the f/2.
Either way...it looks rich!

I don't need this. I had my Mommie sew name tags to all of my gear. It was a lot less expensive, too.

User5273771010: SORRY FOLKS,

Do not agree with DPR this time out... I have been shooting Nikon-only for over 50 plus years, from my first SLR in 1962, the Nikon F and everything else to my F6! DSLR's, the D700, D800, D3, D3s, (2) Df's and my D4 (still have everyone of them and all the Pro glass along the way, LOL!). About 3 years back I jumped ship and purchased (2) Oly E-M1's and now have the entire Oly Pro Lens line up including the outstanding Oly 300mm f2.8. I will be investing in the E-M1 Mk II very soon. Yes, I still shoot my D4 and 2 Df's but I do enjoy using my Oly gear more now than ALL my Nikon collection combined. I believe that my opinion is very subjective, as well, I respect others opinions, more so the ones that invest in, own and use the gear they talk about. The armchair guy & gals, well, keep drooling! 😜

V/R The PhotogDog (Kent)

I have a 10-lens Canon FF kit. All top-notch fast glass.
I also own an EPL6,(converted to IR)
EPL8
PEN-F
EM1 + BG
EM1 II +BG
I also own 17 Panasonic/Leica and Olympus Lenses (All the BEST ones!)
I am...comtemplating selling my entire FF Kit after taking delivery of and using the EM1 II. Is the Canon IQ better. YES. ...but that just isn't the whole story, like so many here try to make it. I haven't done it yet...but am so ready to.....

Funny...my purchases for the year went mostly unawarded, here. I am OK with that.
I am still very happy with the choices I have made regarding their image rendering abilities for my photography needs. These awards don't make me hedge at all in any of my purchasing decisions. :-). The awards here do increase my awareness and also tap into what is popular at the moment.
There is just so much primo gear out there tailored to fit everyones' needs. Great time to be a photographer!

PhotoUniverse: And the the best camera of 2016 is my camera, Nikon D500!
Well done Nikon.
It's a fun and superior camera to use.

@Eric
You can have 20MP at 2.0x crop!
With 15 FPS CAF
Just buy an Olympus E-M1 II.

LOL! Are the counterfeits better than the Canon lenses, because those Canon lenses suck. :-)
