After years as a Silent shoot & commercial photography work cam (and personal cam too) , this is now in Semi retirement as only gets used for Theatrical costume shoots and its still up to the job !! It`s done Over 45,000 shots and is getting brassed corners on the body but lens/sensor is still clean and working beautifully. full marks for longevity, predictability and image quality ! ...... over 7 years old and this thing is still hanging in there ! . Still is a very compact emergency backup to the DSLRs . OK, It`d not score 5 stars if released today - but it retains it for its longevity and reliability
Amazing state of the art fast superzoom lens combined with the best 1" sensor out there makes for an amazingly good do everything camera without the compromise you get using superzoom lenses on DSLRs and Mirrorless cams ... the lens on this this was built to a size and Quality rather than down to a price and it shows ... The Mk4 is the same camera with faster PDAF Focussing , for those who don`t need the speed, a used Mk3 at a fraction of the cost is a real Gem .
at Time of writing (Mar19) , in the UK at least the Mk3 hits the sweet spot on value of the RX range, it`s got the best bits - BSI sensor, EVF and that lovely fast lens so great if you don`t need a pocket camera that shoots faster than a D500 (I don`t for sure) .. the EVF may have been upgraded in the MkV too but the one in this is far better than the one in my GX80 .... JPGs are way better than the MK1/2 and RAWs very malleable indeed , according to DXO, the 1" chip in this is only a bit behind in high ISO the GX80 with its Micro 4/3 sensor ! and almost the same in DR ... pack in the F1.8-2.8 lens that`s actually decent edge to edge at both ends at F2.8 (the Mk1 was soft at 100mm F4.9 everwhere) and it`s a neat little camera ..... Still not cheap even now but for someone who remembers 2 megapixel cameras that cost over £1000 , not desperately so for what you`re getting .... Star knocked off for lack of Touchscreen (the Mk1 should have had one) , none clicky dial and lack of Mic jack
Fujifilm X-T100
At last a proper bayer sensor in a half decent Fuji body , and its a killer one too , actually marginally beating the D7200 and A6500 at high ISOs & DR and nudging closer to the legendary D750 .. Shame they crippled the processor so the Continuous AF and Video are laughable (so loses a star) but having THREE command dials is better than dedicated ones you`ll rarely use .. Cheap and so cheerful its unreal .. give it the CPU power of the XT3 and a few more buttons and they`d have a 5 star classic -Goodbye XTrans , you won`t be missed !!
