I guess I got a late model because mine was purchased in Autumn of 2015 and the Nikon site says my serial number is not affected by this.
Either way, the sky is not falling.

I do a lot of nature/garden shooting around my own house since I have gardening as a hobby too, but I thought the competition was about garden photos? Many of these are landscapes and general nature photos, not technically in a garden. Maybe they should just call it a nature/plant competition.

mod2001: Still don't get it with the "old" X-Trans, it lacks any defined sharpness (at least with ACR). Definitely no competition to the GR. And looking at the RAW file size, the X70's RAW is nearly twice as much as the Ricoh. Why?

I did enjoy my Fuji cameras that had the X-Trans sensor, but I'm definitely not sold on the idea that the X-Trans gives you better sharpness, etc. I recently bought a used X100 that does not have the X-Trans and I think the images from that camera are sharper and more detailed in general. Also, the images from my Nikon DSLRs are more detailed than what I was getting out of my Fuji cameras (X-Trans). Yes, I know the tired argument about raw shooting with X-Trans and how Adobe doesn't handle those files the best, but even when I shot in JPG, I was STILL seeing more detail in my photos from cameras without the X-Trans. I have no bad feelings about the X-Trans, but I do think X-Trans is totally unnecessary. My 24MP D750 files are crunched more than 2x faster in Lightroom on my PC compared to the 16MP X-Trans files from my previous Fuji cameras and the files are usually smaller too. The debate for me is over. I don't mind using X-Trans, but there's no good reason why they should keep it.

This is more of my style for street shooting ;-) Vacation in Yellowstone ;-)

The response here has been brutal. ;-) Personally, I like the Peak Design straps/slings. Very comfortable and functional.

In reply to:

agentlossing: My takeaway is that underexposing to -1.7 EV is too much for this sensor, as in the waterfall pic. Slight underexposure is fine, however, and detail retention is pretty impressive. Lens appears to be fairly high-resolving, details aren't super crisp but you can tell they would stand a fair amount of microcontrast adjustment.

Twin Peaks ;-)

D200_4me: Small body, large lenses ;-)

I've used all the sizes/systems and for now I'm back to a DSLR and VERY happy. I just found it amusing that so many people keep talking about size but as soon as you put a pro grade lens on even an X-T1, it's going to be big and you need the battery grip to make it more comfy. I've used DSLR (APS-C and FF), Oly and Panasonic m4/3, Fuji mirrorless and I presently still have a Sony a6000 (which I love for video and a camera to have in my work backpack). People get way too worked up over the size and weight issues. Use what works best for you and forget about the size and weight (unless you have health issues that prevent use of a large/heavy camera).

Regardless of whether you own one or plan on owning the items shown in the story, you have to admit they're sure nice to look at ;-)

Nice to see a smile on his face and a positive attitude, despite his challenges in life.

D200_4me: This new body is good for people that like to use small prime lenses, but I was always more happy with the E-M1 body compared to the E-M5 I had before it. Slap a 12-40 f/2.8 or bigger lens on the PEN F and it's not going to be so comfy or nice looking. I'd rather have the functionality of this new camera, but in a more ergonomic body (a grip you can actually hold). I am SO over the 'look how tiny this new camera is' fad.

Perhaps a third party will come up with some custom grips for this. I'm sure they will.

On article Fujifilm announces development of EF-X500 flash (85 comments in total)

Anyone know if this is a Fuji developed/built flash or a rebranded Metz or other brand? Maybe this one is really all Fuji, which would be nice. I don't keep up with flashes so I can't tell if this one looks very similar to an already known brand/model that was rebranded as Fuji.

Link | Posted on Jan 16, 2016 at 00:14 UTC as 17th comment

Very tempting. I just wish it had a 35mm equiv lens instead of 28mm. 28 is usually too wide for me if it's the only camera I have with me. Otherwise, the specs look great. Edit - Wait...no EVF. Never mind. I'd be more interested in a used original X100.

In reply to:

Combatmedic870: What really sucks is knowing that this is the sensor they will be using for the next 2 years. I'm going to have to say that's the worst part of this announcement.

2...or maybe 3 years. Fuji X-Trans and Micro Four Thirds seem to be a longer refresh cycle than Sony/Canon/Nikon APS-C / Full Frame. Not necessarily a 'bad' thing, but if you like faster updates in technology, it is what it is for now.

Overall I think there are nice improvements to an already nice camera. It's not anything that wows me though since I already liked the existing Fuji cameras as is. I'd say though that I'm not a huge fan of the X-Trans. I'd prefer the Fuji body/features with a regular non-XTrans sensor. By the way, I don't really care about the OVF. I never really used the OVF on my X-Pro1 or X100S. It's nice that it's there, but if the EVF is great like the X-T1 EVF (or better), I'd never use or care about the OVF. However, I'm forced to use the OVF on my D750 ;-) (AF in live view is slow, but nice to have if you really need it, on the D750 I mean).
