Too big, too heavy, too bulky and without many of the wonderful knobs and buttons that define Fuji.

Use External Editors For Photos in Apple Store, then make the Niks you like favorites.

Software is excellent, but I reject the policy of having to pay extra (On1 Plus) to receive training videos, lessons and support that should be included with the basic package. Unless their confusing pay model is changed, I'm out.

My only use for the New York Times is a backup of toilet paper.

ny10522: For anyone who values Image Quality, this camera and the P900, are both disasters. The P1000 also weighs 3.12 pounds. Ouch!

Both the P900 and P1000 are essentially cell phone sensors attached to ridiculously high magnification lenses and bulky bodies. Another compromise is poor continuous autofocus. If you are fine with the IQ of cell phone images, are not interestested in photographing moving birds, and don't mind the heft....go for it!

PropaPH: Drag me under the bridge and beat me up, but I think the Foveon sensor is what has
been pushing Canon Sony and Nikon into the high resolution Bayer sensors... they feel the hot breath of super image quality breathing down their neck... and it keeps coming. It would be amazing to see what Sigma could do with the funding of Sony!

Totally agree. Wouldn't it be interesting if the coming cutthroat, full frame war between manufacturers was won by...Sigma? I think Olympus and Ricoh/Pentax will be the first casualties. Having owned the DP1, I can attest to its superior image quality at low ISO.

Wonderful news, but I bet the foveon full frame file size will be crazy large.

Nice shot! Taken in excellent lighting. I made the mistake of purchasing the P900, so I know too well its limitations in most lighting situations. Another problem is the continuous autofocus. It was only accurate for the first shot in a burst. Clear BIF photos were rare.

Ugly blue. Why would you want to call attention to an adaptor?

This is just WOW! Breathtaking camera. Fuji is, without a doubt, the foremost innovator in camera design today. The company listens to its customers and reviewers, improves and refines with every generation throughout the line. Also appreciated are the constant Firmware upgrades. Thanks Fuji!

Totally agree with this article. The key problem that needs a fix is AUTOFOCUS.

Superb photos! Yet, I would still go with the Nikon D850 + 300mm f4 lens (about 1755g) over the A9 + 100-400mm lens (about 2070g). In crop mode with 1.4 TC the Nikon can reach to 630mm with excellent weatherproofing.

Looks relatively large and heavy with no top LCD. This mouse and cheese campaign by Nikon is a real turnoff.

Link | Posted on Aug 13, 2018 at 14:59 UTC as 27th comment

I have the P900. High magnification pics are amusing but the image quality is rather terrible. Continuous focus while burst shooting almost always fails. Forget BIF. Looks like this camera magnifies everything thats bad about the P900. Weight goes from 2 pounds to 3 pounds. Ouch!!!! The tiny sensor responsible for the poor IQ remains. It does take great shots of the moon.

Flimsy breakable flash, no weatherproofing, no VF ,and a TINY sensor. But wait...interchangeable lenses(???)..let´s see how many consumers buy this moronic camera. All for $800!
May Pentax Rest in Peace!

Small sensor at $800 without OVF?????? What are they thinking?
Company needs a new crew of executives.
