In reply to:

FoxShutter: This camera is good for a good weather, that's it. There is no weather sealing of any kind and it makes the camera a poor travel companion.
The images in this particular review look mushy and desaturated to my taste. Sorry.

wonder what the people in the 1950s to 1990s did.

I mean, they just could produce images 2 miles from home because of the missing weather sealing, right?

I mean, if you leave your home and it starts to rain, the camera will get ruined, right?

Charlie Jin: I don't know... But those pictures in this article ... I think that I can take them using my iPhone 7. Maybe better. Maybe even better with Snapseed.....

Yeah, the point here is: you didn't!

He used a X100F to actually make these very nice images while you sat in your chair and rambled, what gorgeous images you could produce with your Iphone.

Marcelobtp: those colors are not there, dark images, don't know...
I think i pass.

well, having that inky images (that is sharp and rich shadows), is a choice of the photographer.
You can set up your fuji to generate the jpg output you want and increasing the shawow contrast will give those darkish images. I like it and I do process my raw files a bit like this.

Long story short: the output is not specific for the X-Trans III sensor.
Everytime I read about people claiming to sense the nuances of different sensors and processing engines, I laugh very hard!

iudex: Nice roadtrip, the article and the photos created a sentimental mood and desire for travelling.
However I cannot stop thinking that many pics ask for a wider angle of view; 35mm eq is simply not wide enough for landscapes and travelling. 28 or 24mm would be better. So as usual I come to the conclusion that for me a fixed prime lens compact is not an ideal travel cam. A 24-70mm eq. would be so much more useful. When staying with Fuji and prime lenses, an XT-20 + 14mm + 23mm + 50mm would be much more helpful.

more helpful for what? and for whom?
when you travel to do photography, then sure, it is most helpful to have the right lens for the scene.

However, most people travel because they want to enjoy the experience. A camera with a 35mm FOV represents the perfect compromise between long and wide lenses.
Is it optimal for every scene? No.
Is is convenient to have only one camera? Yes.

Maybe it is not for you to only have one lens, but for many others, me included, this works very well.

Saurat: Classic Chrome, Provia, Velvia? FFS if you are at all serious just shoot Raw and process your own images.

Did you ever developed raw files yourself?
First thing you do is to select a color profile and it ain't the Adobe default calibration FFS

The Name is Bond: Unless you have cashflow problems, rapid depreciation for many systems means there's no point not buying the latest and greatest, and selling off yesterday's model. You'll still end up spending the same amount of money, but miss out on a)the latest and greatest b)warranty.

Disagreeing 100%. Yes, your camera will be worth only a fraction after 2 years.
And I get it when you make a point for the latest and greatest tech but I don't like the attitude.
What do you gain with the latest tech? more tech! yeah, right. Doesn't improve your photography - at all!
Best, stop doing camera research and invest into literature, tickets to exhebitions and other education.

After 2 years I am still learning about operations and composition and I am still getting confused by switching focal lengths.
Best decision for me to get a fixed compact camera and escape the consume compulsion you suffer from...

babart: Besides the Fuji 23/2, one can acquire an 18/2, 27/2.8, 35/2, and 50/2 for very reasonable prices. Three of these are weather resistant....23, 35, 50mm (35, 50 and 75 equivalents). Not a bad range in what is a very decent camera system.

I like the new lenses.
alas, a 16/2 is missing, that would be nice.

geert62: no point in just being cheaper, easily changing focal length should be the extra :
- nikon1 + 10mm (+18mm )
+ : fast, good colours, good enough for most, sturdy, close focus with 18mm
- : no viewfinder
-panasonic GM5 + 15 mm (+ 45 mm olympus)
+ : viewfinder, very small, excellent subject isolation
- : so so viewfinder

Leica Q might suite me fine, but is expensive.

the nikkor 1 10/2.8 has, and I have to shout this over my lungs NOT GOOD COLORS

JPnyc: i know it's a horrible thought but my pick will soon be the next smartphone generation, i honestly don't think i will ever buy another camera again after i'll get a new phone. likely this will be something like an iPhone 8 or so.
simply because smartphone picture quality is really quite astounding these days, plus you just can't beat the "it's always there" factor. and the videos are great too. and the easy integration with all the apps and social media and whatnot ...
what do you guys think? honestly!

actually, that is even better than my Sigma DP merrills oO

In reply to:

zzzxtreme: I have few cameras and lenses. what I miss most is the Nikon V1 + 10mm f/2.8 (28mm ff equivalent).

I love my V1, but the 10/2.8 I never leaned to like.
It produces dull and boring images, I don't know. The 18.5/1.8 in contrast produced so many keepers for me, so I guess I like the 50mm FOV.
but it also the colors for the 10/2.8 and the rendering.
Can't believe you miss this :)

MCMLXXIII AD: Good to read about XA-3 which noone mentions or has reviewed. I have this and also bought the tiny 27/2.8 which is very sharp and probably even better than the 23/2 on X100f. The F2 on X100f is soft.

is it? even at f4? or f5.6? I find it "sharp enough".
It might not hold up in the studio scene here or a direct benchmark, but honestly, do you think about MTF charts when you print a photo of yours and say "snap, that eye could have been a bit sharper"??

In reply to:

ms18: Great article.

I think it's better not to use the DSLR mounts. It's a bad idea. Canon may go with EOS M as they would have already seen this coming. There is an adaptor which will let you use legacy lenses.

yeah. or they "shorten" the flange-sensor distance like Sigma!
To be only compatible with their own glass...

It would be bad for Nikon to not use the established mount.

It's time to ditch Canon.

Just make a clean break.

Uhm... That escalated quickly!

Funkyd3121: Love my Galaxy S6 - does a Great job with images. Would buy the S8 - IF I had the funds right now - but that will have to wait a while. Samsung phones are Badd to the Bone, no 2 ways about it. Much Better than eyeFonez!!
