em jo photo: Looks good, with one reservation: the portraits with the 23mm f/1.4 are really soft.

Is that a result of the lens--i.e., is it just that soft wide open? Or is it the camera's AF (has a hard time locking in tough, contrasty light?) Or both, or something else?

@Carey Rose The 23mm has gotton soft over the years? Lol! I will remember to use that as my excuse next time I fook up the photo. So much for the fabled Fujinon lens quality.

I am looking at the gallery on a phone. Somebody tell me, couldn't these photos have been taken by virtually any half-decent camera on the market today?

Betico: One major difference between the X-H1 and X-T2 is that the new X-H1 is made in China. The X-T2 looks like it will be the last X series camera built in Japan. It will keep its re-sell value just for that little difference. Looks like Fujifim is going to become 100% Chinese just as Panasonic did few years ago. I really feel sorry for those great Japanese camera craftsmen, that are loosing their jobs just for the few cents more that their company will make by moving all their manufacturing to the Greatest China.

@ Betico Ignorant troll. It is made in Japan.

mike emerson: Looks like their cameras are going in the same direction as other typical DSLR's. I thought their philosophy was about the advantages of a lighter camera system? The X-H1 looks bigger and heavier. Why are they bothering with a shutter speed dial with an LCD displaying the same thing next to it? That doesn't make sense to me. No exposure compensation dial either. Fractured logic on the 'retro' front I think. I used to like Fuji's approach to photography but looks like that's all going to change. I think the X-T2 might well be last product i'll buy from them. Listen up Fuji, you may be about to lose your core customers...

In other words you want Fuji to do exactly what you want? Get over yourself. The XT3 will follow the design precepts of the XT2. This is a new model line with its own ergonomic parameters.

liopleurodon: This almost makes me wish I hadn't just invested so heavily in Sony's e-mount. The X-H1 looks like an ideal camera for me offering a few advantages over my a6500 and adding IBIS for handheld video. I dismissed the XT-2 because I didn't see any stabilized primes and without IBIS video would look terrible handheld. X-H1 solves that nicely. Better zoom selection too, though I love the selection of primes on E-mount (and they all have a 49mm filter thread so i only need to carry one filter set). The final test though will be to see if Fuji's AF can keep up with the a6500's which is outstanding. Is there a way to adapt Canon glass to Fuji with PDAF?

@BRWAT If you were interested in ergonomics and button placement and customer service then why buy Sony in the first place? They have always sucked at those things.

rlx: Why keep things simple when it's more funny to make them complicated? A video camera with the controls of a stills camera? Great!

It is not a video camera.

The Fat Fish: Only a matter of time before we get a full frame (hopefully bayer) camera from Fuji.

And what lens would you use with it? You think Fuji are going to manufacture a complete new range of full frame lenses for a system that has near imperceptible IQ over aps-c?

The horizontal grip becomes an absolute neccessity. When the next model comes along it will no doubt have a new bigger better battery that this body was designed for, thus acting as an incentive for yet another expensive upgrade. A cynical move by Fuji.

ekaton: Weight and size of the top of the line mft bodies and now of this one go into the wrong direction.

Wrong. In order to be ergonomic bodies need to be quite large, with proper hand grips and big dials and buttons. You may continue to play with your tiny toys if you wish, and watch it fly out of your hand and smash into the ground.

mxx: Good pictures, but really depressing. Nothing nice happened this year? Judges, take a dose of Prozac and lighten up a bit!

Very few people can take images like this. But for cheerfully moronic images there are millions of people like you.

Bobthearch: Just more gratuitous aftermath suffering photos. Not one of these images captured the actual news event.
Very poor job on the part of the judges.

Nevermind. You can continue to upload pictures of your lunch to Instagram and receive many likes from your family.

tkbslc: So what's the point of a large sensor if the lens is too dim to use anywhere but outdoors or with flash? I can already do that with a 1/2.3" superzoom.

Gediminas 8 No one bought you into the discussion either. Nice "passive aggression" as they say.

Very odd how some people regard 1" as a large sensor snd Micro Four Thirds as tiny.

shigzeo: My concerns as regards Sony's A series are dwindling, but the A7, like the A7 is still too cramped. I can't get my fingers comfortably on the grip when wearing even thin sports gloves. The body needs to be larger.

@photomedium I wish the G9 had the sensor size of the A7.

Hugh Brownstone will need a box of tissues when he hears about this. For one thing or the other.

Ergo607: No Pentax, no go...!

Sigma know Pentax will be history in a few years time, not worth the cost of manufacturing for K-mount.

He doesn't need it. That's why he is sticking with his old gear. Try reading the article.

rfsIII: This is a silly test because no one has used a single Sony A7-series cameras since the GH5 came out. My uncle told me there are big piles of discarded A7s in front of Paramount, Warners, and Disney studios with signs that say "Free Cameras" but no one even bothers to pick them up.

This the same uncle who keeps you locked in the basement and tells you never to come out because of the Martians?
