Still no IBIS. No go for me, because I have shaky hands. Cameras that cost 1/3 that much have IBIS; why can't Fuji include it?

Unless you have the hands of a neurosurgeon, how in the world do you get the filter installed, without inadvertently touching it at least a bit and leaving fingerprints?

Derick59: What a load of rubbish. Use what's available at your camera store that will suit your pocket and gear.

All these heads are designed to do the same thing. a milli-micron this way or that won't change your photo.

Stop reading. Go out and take photos.

An objective review of several ball heads by popular manufacturers is "rubbish", and people should just blindly buy whatever their local camera shop (if there even is one; many of us don't have that luxury) is promoting? Strange attitude, to be sure.

tirmite: When will DPReview, the eminent technical blog supposedly, stop playing the dishonest lens equivalency game? So if it's "equivalent" to a 24-70mm then you also HAVE to make the f-stop "equivalent." It is NOT like a 1.8-2.8 aperture. It would give DOF results more like an f4.0-5.6 lens would it not? Being able to shoot in low light is more a function of ISO and sensor noise these days, but for some of us having control over depth-of-field is still what separates a snapshot from a photograph. This camera is NOT a replacement for a 35mm DSLR with a "real" 24-70mm f2.8 lens, although it's clearly a great little pocket camera. How about truthful, accurate marketing both by the manufacturer and camera reviewers about what a lens REALLY is equivalent to if you're going to make that selling point in the first place?

Obviously the OP was so eager to vent that he did not even take the trouble to read the review. If he had, he'd have seen the large section on aperture equivalency.

Zoron: no built-in stabilization....so no for me.

Small primes with short focal lengths don't really require stabilization; that's why they typically don't have it.
