MamiyaMax: Odd, she doesn't like the weight of DSLR on vacation. Canon with the 18-135 is 1216 grams. Her Sony A7R3 with a 24-105 is 1321 grams. So much for that theory.

@Panther. Quit being obtuse. She has a Sony A7R3, and that is what I compared it to. Keep trying with your pathetically inept attempts to justify her oversight.

To all the Sony apologists our there, I compared the 90D to the A7R4 that she has, as she was discussing weight. I can grab a D3500 and be lighter as well, but the point is that she complained about weight, when she was wrong about it. And complaining about OVF in bright sun has got to be one of the dumbest things I’ve ever heard.

J A C S: "Firstly, DSLRs are restricted to using only optical viewfinders (OVF) while mirrorless cameras offer electronic viewfinders (EVF). Being forced to use an OVF in Hawaii was painful."

LOL! One is restricted, the other one is not!

Not sure how an OVF in Hawaii was painful. I also don't understand the restriction comment. With the 90D, one can use an OVF and the back screen. On the Sony, one is restricted to EVF; unless the Sony just sprouted an OVF

The article was a pointless fluff piece

PWPhotography: at $6K, you can get A9+FE 100-400 GM or FE 200-600 G and still have a balance left. Then such FF combo will beat this lens on 1.5x APS-C Fuji hands down in airshow events for example.

The apsc photos are definitely sharper and less noisy than the fullframe photos. I agree, the fullframe photos have awful processing artifacts. Halos and noise reduction artifacts. I would not display those as an example of the supposed superiority of fullframe.

Tom Schum: Spectacular image collection, wonderful quality!
And, it must have been fun being out there taking all these images!

I'd like to see Fuji put out a 200mm F4 for the rest of us.

Incredible lens. A great match on the XT3. Obviously a huge thumbs up from DPReview

BWfoto: Good photography but still very smart looking images. They lack the deep texture and color of a Bayer FF sensor.,

Uneducated and inexperienced camera user has difficulty accepting that he is out of his depth and was proven wrong.

@Terry, as Fuji is known to be one of the best for color, you obviously have no idea what you talking about. As to texture, I have no issues with getting fine details and texture from X Trans files. In other words, once again, you are out of your depth here and just trolling.

Rambazamba: Why are in nearly every image the shadows crushed or the highlights blown out? Whats wrong with DR and Fuji ? No wonder why they are coming out with HDR now..

XTrans is just fine. Seems Terry forgot what Velvia is all about in his anti Fuji crusade.

Looks like a great new camera. Cannot wait to try it out.

Constantin V: Can't think of any reason they would introduce a new film. R&D is not profitable in this area anymore. Re-branding old stocks in a new shiny box (hi, lomography!) is much more popular nowdays. So no HP6. The only film they may introduce without damaging current portfolio is a very slow emulsion around 25-50 iso for pictorial use to make competition with adox.

Proof? You can't be serious. Are you saying they develop new products without any research? Feel free to explain how you create a new product without any research. Seriously., do I have to spoon feed you?

So what you are saying is that companies do R&D on things in which they lose money. Seems you don't understand business.

R&D is profitable in this area. Otherwise, Ilford wouldn’t do it. Unless you are suggesting companies do R&D to purposely lose money. Second, they have a 50 iso film; Ilford Pan F Plus. Pan F is their finest grain film.

MamiyaMax: Wow. This is looking like a great travel, landscape body. The addition of Sigma glass makes it far more tempting than Sony's pathetic rehash

@mediart. I always find people like you to be odd. Because you've got you backside handed to you in this topic, you decide to try to attack a persons credibility instead. Always remember that many here have far more experience and knowledge than you. I did my BA in photography at the Brooks Institute and have been the secondary photographer for a wedding pro here in California who is mainly a film shooter. I also run his two Fuji Frontier systems for his work as well as others locally. Feel free to continue to spout off about me never using a camera. You are truly clueless and have no idea what you are talking about.

Alex Rathmann: It is a very nice camera, but this camera can not replace my Fuji XT3, because of the sharpness and color and ergonomics

You can disagree all you like. The sensor has nothing to do with sharpness. You have a lot to learn before posting as some kind of authority

As I said, sharpness has nothing to do with the camera. Good lenses are available for each.
