But the real question is: why isn't this camera named a78?

Images are smudged and gloomy. What an awful camera.

Oh wait, is this NOT about bashing some equipment??? I must be in the wrong website then.

...Oh nevermind, you didn't mean THAT f, but the OTHER f, am I right?

I'll get one for my NX, thanks. Looks so much better than the 16mm f2.8 Samsung made.

A review? Seriously? That's wizardry.

Aren't we in the Digital Preview website?

What will be next, a photographer satisfied by the gear he owns?

I'll use it as a scope for my airsoft rifle. Nice idea, Oly!

Gesture: Because we can.

I don't see one manufacturer breaking through with something more powerful, yet more elegant and simpler to operate. The entire modern digital camera interface needs to be re-thought, but that would take re-working all the existing sub-assemblies on the circuit boards, etc.

I misunderstood your point Gesture, sorry for the sarcastic tone of my reply! :)

Yes, I, too, want to be paid by Samsung to leave comments such as this. Please PM me so I can send you my payment details.

/sarcasm

Dual grip on a pinhead sensor superzoom brings the utterly useless to a whole new level. Because hey, my camera weighs 400 grams with a battery installed, so why not use a grip conceived for a full frame reflex with a 1 kg lens attached on it?

In reply to:

abortabort: Good to see no price hike, though the original Limited Edition black X100 came with a bunch of original accessories, which made the price difference not that big.

The good thing is you don't actually HAVE to buy them to get a black camera. That was silly to say the least. Especially when the lens hood was 10 to 15 times more expensive then a perfectly usable, compatible one.

(unknown member): Fujifilm...wake up.
You've been stuck on 16MP since the F500EXR like 5 years ago.
There's smartphones with more megapixel than these!
And what's with the slooooooooooooooooooowwwww lens on pinhead sized sensors?
It's the era of the Full Frame, baby!

These cameras' last problem is they have TOO FEW MEGAPIXELS.
Also, if you have a way to integrate a full frame sensor on a 300$ superzoom, let Fuji know. I'm sure they are interested in hiring you.

Check EXIF - they used the kit lens.

In reply to:

ThePhilips: Sammy dropped prices considerably. The NX300 with 18-55 kit can be found now for less than 450€ in Germany. Incredible price/performance.

Lenses also recently lost some chunk of their price. The pancakes - 20mm and 30mm - can be found for less than 150-200€. The 12-24 - for about 500€, the cheapest 1st party UWA option I'm aware of.

Yeah, but you must be brave enough to purchase a Canon EOS-M in the first place.

In reply to:

onlooker: This one is impressive: https://s3.amazonaws.com/masters.galleries.dpreview.com/2758111.jpg?AWSAccessKeyId=14Y3MT0G2J4Y72K3ZXR2&Expires=1387784461&Signature=I3YEJG70VPFq9i1hEa4GvDaq%2FNM%3D

Pity the NX300 has no viewfinder. Otherwise it would have been an attractive camera.

Because there is no Samsung NX20 on the market as we speak, right?

I know it's long overdue for an update (and no, it is not the Galaxy NX, that camera is a gimmicky joke), but why nobody remembers the rest of the lineup?

In reply to:

forpetessake: Probably this camera with Bayer sensor will have better color reproduction than all transes. But still no grip, and the same poor 16-50 lens, probably the same poor AF. It can't compete against other mirrorless unless they drop the price to under $400.

People always trend to forget about Samsung NX cams. I got a brand new NX210 with two zooms and the delicious 30mm prime for that 500 bucks equivalent...

Horshack: Terrible timing for Nikon, who just released their 800mm full-frame lens. Maybe they'll cancel its production :)

Epic sarcasm detection FAIL.

On article Just Posted: Fujifilm X20 review (175 comments in total)

Same lens, but the X-10 scores higher in the optics department.
Same flash, but the X-10 scores lower in the flash performance department.
Worse and more aggressive noise reduction at high ISO, but the X-10 scores MUCH higher in low-light/high ISO performance.
Also, the X-20 has a faster burst rate, faster focusing and shorter lock-up times, and yet the X-10 scores higher in the performance (speed) department.

Hmmm... curious indeed.

Other than that, nice review of a very beautiful camera!

Sony likes this item.

Also, seeing Nikon's and Olympus' offerings in the lower-end of their enthusiast camera offerings, I realize how Canon's S100 is the camera that has aged better in the whole digital photography history. Being the best choice at its price range two years after its initial release is no small feat!
