vesa1tahti: What about Sigma 18-35 f/1,8 Art? Better or worse?

The sigma is for APS-C sensor size. The Canon is for FF sensor size.

QuarryCat: The built quality is better then a Nikon D500?
Good joke.
My experiences with different E-M1 were not good at all,
all bodies used to look very used and crabby after a short period of working with them.
And E-M1II won't be this much better.
Despite this, my Fuji X-T1 looks still like free from the dealer, after shooting a lot.
AF and IS were by far not satisfying with the E-M1 and fist results with the Mark II are far behind D500.
So no more Olympus cameras.
Some lenses are still good, but better on Panasonic cameras.

Olympus E-M1 II is a make believer but nothing more.
And the price is crazy - 1200€ seems to be realistic.
For 1800€ you get the better sensor, the better AF-System, the better viewfinder, the far better lenses from Fuji.

Yes, " fist results with the Mark II" can really hurt :)

jonny1976: gold award this and pentax k1 silver award...what you are smoking in this website?

Awards on DpReview are always relative to other camera of the same type. The OM-D is gold among other µ4/3, K1 is silver among other FF camera. OM-D is an all around camera with great video capabilities, K1 is more photo centric, with a simpler AF :)

In reply to:

Angrymagpie: Is this MFT sensor only or it also has the MFT mount, which means that it will be compatible with existing MFT system?

From a mechanical point of view, it's look's like the same mount than the one of my GM1. But MFT is an electronic mount, so mainy problems can happen.

GRicoh: This looks so much like the Leica T that I can't help but wonder if it's legal...

China is the king of copy. And this camera look's like a Leica. With chinese products you can have good looking copy of a Range Rover, an Iphone, a leica and a rolex. All for an unbeatable price and quality :)

oysso: My first impression is that there are some room on the ergonomy side. Too much reliance on screen for adjustments . There should have been more buttons and wheels.

Buy a CaNikon, so you'll have plenty of knobs, levers, weels, joysticks, dials, and more buttons :)

grapposoda: What's the point with that oversized front lens element? I've seen similar in other designs too, but can't figure it out. Suppresses flares somehow..?

For that price, i want a big front glasses that claims "look, i'm using a big lenses with a huge piece of glasse, i'm a pro" :)

Looks like a Panasonic µ4/3 lenses.

Who cares about EVF ? You can tilt the rear screen to take selfies. And with 18mm wide, that's very cool for group shots. :)
BTW, you can put an external EVF if you want to look more pro ;)

In reply to:

Cistron: I'm sometimes wondering what trade-offs take place behind the scenes when camera designs are finalised. The lack of a AF joy-stick (or selector otherwise) is always puzzling. But for a camera that can draw an a wide range of existing K-mount lenses I'm not sure why the viewfinder was limited to 0.7x. I wouldn't call that large when most better manual film SLRs where about 0.85x (OM-1/2 at a whooping 0.92x).

Btw, @Richard Butler, does it come with a decent focusing screen that isn't completely smooth?

When you long-press on OK button, camera switch in AF point select mode and you move the AF point with the four arrow around the OK button, pressing again the OK button set the AF point.

makofoto: In the movie industry we had drop-in Grad Filters for decades. Mainly for long telephotos. They tended to be ineffectual but hopefully this will work with wider lenses. Filters behind a lens will change the back focus by something like a third of it's thickness. This doesn't effect long lenses but definitely will effect wide lenses. It will be interesting to see how this issue of physics will be dealt with. The 30.5 mm internal Tiffen filters for my Cooke 18/100 T3.0 lens were ultra thin. http://public.fotki.com/makofoto/work/miscellanous/305mmtiffen.html

back or front focus are a problem with phase focus, with contrast focus, there is not problem.

David Zamora: Interested in the grain simulation and improved focusing.

"grain simulation", there so little noise with X-Trans that Fuji needs to add some noise to mimic Bayer sensor :)

OliverGlass: @DPR
Though it's a minor thing--- how is the rendition of greens/foliage now with the new sensor and processing?

A problem ? where ? I shot green chrismas tree and process with lightroom, and foliage render nicely. I try silkypix, rawtherape, lightzone, and there is little difference at 100% viewing, but when reduce to Flickr post, all images look the same.

Bueche: Does the x-trans III have the same devastating effect on everything that's bright green/yellow/orange, just as earlier versions of x-trans?

I have no problem at all with Lightroom and christmas green tree, it render picture with great colors and resolution.

In reply to:

The Name is Bond: Even at a much lower resolution of the x-pro 1's LCD, I've ended up never using the optical viewfinder as the LCD was really so good that I've never felt limited or the need to upgrade.

But then, I've never spoiled myself by trying a newer camera.

I wear glasses and the EVF is almost unusable, it's hard to see image corner. I use mainly the OVF. I try the X-T1 EVF and there is big advance in 4 year.

AdamT: 24mp - great - shame they didn`t ditch X-Trans :( this would have been an excellent opportunity to do so .

Why ditch X-Trans ? this tech provide lower noise and don't need low pass filter.

Why every comment are complains ? Those lenses looks great, they cover FF sensor, so with an APS-C sensor they perform at their best. They all share the same filter, same max aperture. They are not plastic lenses and they come in X mount :) For X, only the 35mm is not interesting due to the fuji Offer.
On their site, they say "Without autofocus and electronic aperture control also for the version with SONY NEX and FUJI X mount systems" for me it's mean that they are pure manual lenses, with real time aperture control. So you focus at f2.4 and close to the desired aperture to take the shot.

Nice lense and sensor, you can even read the advertissement on the billboard of the conservatory "The Conservatory allows limited professional photography by PERMIT only" :)
