Aurico: That zoom range is useless, and simple better 85mm prime could do it all better.. at least so it is with zoom lenses, no one would buy 85-125mm zoom lens. Maybe some photo freaks would, if it was super high quality and fast (heavy), which this is obviously not.

Feels like they did this in marketing purposes for those who don't know what focal length means.

and it seem that the quality at the long end will be lower and the guys on GSMArena found out that at the end of the day the quality of a 85mm crop will be the same like the picture of the 125mm.
That sounds for me like a better 85mm would be the better solution.

PlumShots: Serious question...if you already have one of the Fuji 56mm f1.2 lenses, why would you be interested in this lens (other than bragging rights)?

Seems to be too similar a focal length and max. aperture for a specific niche lens.

Cheers.

For me it's the must have factor

Philippe R: I had a used D60 for a few months until the 10D was released. I flew all the way to New York (from Nice France) in June 2003 to get one. When I arrived in NYC I searched every camera shop to find one with no luck, until I ended up at B&H on Sunday morning (the day of my flight back) and very luckily they had just received a batch on Friday so i did come home with two 10Ds (one for a good friend).
It gave me many great photos (until I went the 1DII path in may 2004).
I can tell you that this 10D gave me hours of great memories and a few shots that were sold ;-) and I was not a pro at the time.
Great camera, really !!! Very happy and lucky to have owned one.

From Nice to New York? 🙄ðŸĪŠðŸ‘ðŸŧ

eno2: A very unappealing products with the worst screen implementation!

This camera could have been phenomenal with a Bayer sensor (with no more waxing, worm like artifacts and reduced resolution) and a free angle rotating screen a la GH4 (if you don't need it, turn it back and don't use it, but for the vast majority of users could have been a blessing).
But NOOO, Fuji had to reinvent themselves and produce another undesirable product course the market isn't full enough with intentionally crippled features + endless insignificant product iterations.

It feels like nowadays camera manufacturers don't really want to offer us compelling products (that we want to buy) anymore. But it's funny how they scratch their heads wandering why more and more people aren't buying a dedicated camera anymore.

@ eno2: that's what I mean. Don't use the default settings.

Schwermetall: The X-Pro3 will not be my new camera but it's good that Fujifilm do different things.
It's more about the user experience.

Same like me.
It's a niche and there will be people who will love it.

If you have worm artifacts with your Fujifilm than you are applying the wrong settings.
Working with RAW is definitely different from sensor type to sensor type. There is no standard setting.
But it's right that you will need different sharpening settings for your Fujifilm.

D200_4me: Nice to have a screen on the front so you can see if you're properly framed :-)

Horshack, you are right but the front screen can help you to see if the exposure right

Ebrahim Saadawi: It's baffling how Sony makes one of the highest quality LCD/LED panels in the world yet give us those horrid screens in their 3000$+ cameras. The Canon 200D/SL2 450$ camera has a significantly better screen than the A7III, with iPhone-grade touch functionality and a very colour accurate 3" wide-view panel. Canon seems to be getting screens from a high-end touch-panel manufacturer like Samsung/LG.

I hope merging these divisions in Sony helps in the sharing if technology, like getting the alpha cameras Siny's high-end touch panels and their mobile AI/Compurational trickert, as well as the mobile division getting some Alpha tech like IBIS, great lenses, amazing DR, lowlight performance, hell they have the best sensors in the world and own Zeiss glass and have amazing computational power that they SHOULD be making the best camera-phones out there!

Have a look at their extrem good cameras but in the smartphones they are just average (not in terms of marketing).
On the other side the touch screens from their smartphones are much better than the touchscreens (experience) from their cameras.
If both departments will work together Sony will be much stronger than ever!

FUJI-Gate!
Fake picture!
After Huawai-Gate I'm shure the picture from the child is not taken with this camera!

awojtas: Curious if you can shoot RAW/DNG on the telephoto with the Note 9, or if it's like previous Samsung models where only the standard lens allows Pro mode with DNG, and the telephoto is limited to JPG.

@BrightTiger: "...pros) have a hard time even recreating the jpg result".
Well I don't want to recreating the jpg result.
For the jpg looks good on a smartphone but not so on a 27" screen.
I don't like their way of sharpening.
But you are right the sensors are too small.

I absolutly agree with you.
For me it's essential and the reason not to buy the Note 8.

Schwermetall: Great video but what I never understand is why you are filming with 24fps for YouTube?
In my opinion it makes no sense because nobody on earth is looking YouTube with 24 fps.
They all have monitors with 60fps.
Because that you should film with 30 or 60 fps for the best viewing expirience.

@ left eye
thanks a lot for your explanations.
Sorry that I've used the wrong terms in my statements due to my bad english.

@ its_a_knife, you are right, drop frame was not the right word and 120fps would match at least for 24, 30 & 60fps.
But also pulldowns doesn't work smooth.
I mean if you have a real movie and you can't switch your system to native 24fps pulldown is a way.
But when you know that nearly 100% of your viewers can watch only with native 60fps than it makes no sense to film with 24fps.
30fps will be a good choice because it looks similar as 24fps but won't stutter.

I agree to all of you and I like the 24-look too.
But the point is when there is a 24 content it's a must to look it with 24fps otherwise you will have drop frames.
Maybe my standard is different in this case but for me it's a nogo.

Mariano Pacifico: How often do Canon and Nikon upgrade their firmware?
1) Often
2) Not so Often
3) Never
4) Only available when you buy your next camera
5) None of the above
6) All of the Above

Canon does this "mistake" once with the 5DII and started the "movies with DSLR" story.
Sadly they didn't repeat this "mistake"
... and I must changed to Fujifilm :-)
