In reply to:

Accim: I did not know the X-T20 was coming, therefore I ordered the X-T10 today, because the shop was running low. Still I am ok with this. I got my camera for 560 pounds with the cheap lens. I still believe it will be better than my X-E1 for focusing.

It is but only in the center.

The middle 15 Af points are fine. Even tracking works decent.

Don't expect miracles in low light though.

Jefftan: no weather sealing $1200
what? Are u serious?

Company are not realistic with price
no wonder Canon mirrorless become #2 in Japan
Canon at least get the pricing right

Olympus #1 because it still have reasonably priced E-PL7/8 and EM10
If they follow E-M1 II crazy pricing, see what happen

Sony #3 thanks to those crazy A6300 pricing again, who know how low is Fuji sales

Uhm none of those sealed?
Just the Canon's ain't sealed in that list,
All the others are.

Their M5
Doesn't shoot 4k
Comes with a much slower kit lens
Isn't weathersealed either

costs just as much

CheddarMonkey: So this can shoot 4k but a $1600 xpro2 can't? Really?

Also--why does the XT2 have panorama mode and the XP2 doesn't? I'm getting kind of sick of these artificially-imposed limitations.

The Xpro2 can't shoot 4k due to the lack of cooling on the sensor.
Which i have to agree was a costly mistake on Fuji's part. But not an "artificially-imposed limitation"

Agree on the Panorama mode.

great Javier: Without IBIS and cheap construction it must be complicated to pay more that 1k for the camera. Panasonic already has a better option in the market.

Sure no problem it has some improvements.
Some firmware related and the filter is obviously hardware related.

But that doesn't change the fact that the sensor is outclassed by the one Fuji uses here.

Cipher: A touchscreen! Why oh why does this have a touchscreen and not the X-T2? Do we have to wait 3-4 years to get a touchscreen on the X-T3? Maybe they can come out with a X-T2s with a touchscreen in the meantime...

The XT-2 AF-C for video is good, You can find that on Youtube.

Be aware that it can only record 4k for 10 minutes. And 1080P for only 15 minutes(WTH?!) according to their spec sheet.

The G80 is not better it's different,
It has a dated 16mp m43 sensor from 2012.
It doesn't have these advanced AF tracking features.

It does have a better EVF and weathersealing.

Anthony Sullivan: $6500 is not a bad price for Fuji's medium format camera compared to rival medium formats.

Can't wait to see what the IQ is like.

Arbux.
It's the same sensor as the camera's i mentioned. Same dimensions same MP count same manufacturer(Sony)

Difference is Hasselblad and the other medium format companies do have larger CCD sensors and 1 larger Cmos sensor at their disposal.

https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1244709-REG/hasselblad_h_3013742_h6d_100c_medium_format_dslr.html

Like that one. 53.4 x 40.0mm 100mp Cmos

In reply to:

Koemans: 900 dollars..? for camera that can film 4k??
Meanwhile, Kodak believes they can ask 2000 dollars for a camera with that function.

Oh wait, i mean canon... not kodak..

Canon 2 grand fo 4k?

More like 16 grand actually. (C300 mk2)
The 5d mk4 and 1DX Mk2 4k mode are too cumbersome to actually use.
The C100 mk2 can't shoot 4k either.

sunnycal: No mic port is a deal breaker. I was ready to ditch A6300 until I noticed this.

It says mic remote on the door.
It has a mic port

In reply to:

halfwaythere: 1/125s flash sync speed, ouch.

Actually mirrorless makes manual focus much easier. Since you can zoom in with the EVF and nail precise focus.

Remember medium format is still mostly used inside high-en studio's.
These are controlled environments. An H or phase one equiv. adapter would give this camera more potential in that market.

Especially since the Fuji is nearly 20 grand cheaper then the compareable Hasselblad.

It has the same sensor as the
Pentax 645z and Hasselblad H6D-50c

It has a similar price as the Pentax which is also weathersealed.
The other medium format companies want a LOT more money.

In reply to:

Intence: I'm genuinely wondering if Fujifilm meant to release this camera this early. Sony recently announced that they would cease manufacturing 16MP sensors I believe. This led to the early demise of the X70, but Fujifilm could have help off for several months while X-T2 sales were still more than strong (still goes out of stock shortly after they arrive).

Fujifilm could have waited a few months or could have set the MSRP higher (and later angered early adopters with a hefty price drop)

Kudos to Fujifilm for releasing this camera at a fair price.

I wanted an X-E3.

But i can live with the center mounted EVF.
Especially when Fuji loaded it with awesome goodies.

In reply to:

XEddieX: I don't think I saw this mentioned, but another thing the X-T20 lacks from the X-T2 is the 1/8000 shutter speed.

True, and the faster flash sync(which is more important)

Still doubt anyone thought they would include a touchscreen and the XT-2 advanced AF features.

All Fuji held back is due to fabrication cost savings.
They seem to unleash the full capability of the sensor and processor at a significant lower price point.

sunilkumar: fantastic, 1199 with excellent 18-55 lens. very sensible pricing.

How did it become like a new lens.

I've notice improved AF and OIS over the years.(just like Fuji claimed in the patch notes)

But optically it has always been a great performer from day 1

Wow,

This is gonna be my next camera.
We all expected the new sensor and processor.(Not this soon though)

What i did not expect was the touchscreen and advanced AF modes.

Those 2 features sealed the deal for me. Time to fork up the cash!

DavidNJ100: And if it had a bigger sensor with on sensor phase detection this would all be very interesting. With its best glass in is barely sharper than a kit lens APS-C camera.

Your 14-45mm (i assume) is still the best kit-lens Panasonic made. The first 14-42mm wasn't that great either. The one they have now is pretty decent.

The kit-lens crown definitely goes to Fuji though. That 18-55mm F2. 8-4 is as good as the 2 m43 F2.8 zooms

In reply to:

Mike FL: I'm not sure what's the selling point of this priced $1K outdated M5 while the ALL TIME Best Selling SONY a6000 is less than $400 for the body or $550 with kit zoom:

https://www.amazon.com/gp/bestsellers/electronics/3109924011/ref=zg_b_bs_3109924011_1

You missed the point.

The EOS M system is a system without the required lenses for basic forms of photography.

Without an adapter you can't get decent shallow depth of field. Since the only reasonably fast prime is a 22mm.

While it's competitors even Sony have a much more complete set of lenses.
