  • If so why haven't they? ;)
    Prize and possibilities of APS-C are just right for many people as it seems.

  • Unfortunately sunstars and flare are not a strength with all Fuji wide angle lenses. Paired with the purple grid effect of the MK II cameras and some sensor reflection, I often think of the better...

  • 50 out of 400 is NOT 25%... Still a moot point. ;-)

    Wait for the 24mm to be sold with cashback for 300. Then it will be pretty nice.

  • Ergonomics is always an issue to me, especially on Sony cameras. None of them fits my hands as well as Canon, Nikon or Fuji.

  • Pick up an R and you will find it feels like any other Canon DSLR in you hand. I would bet the RP does the same only smaller. And I know for sure that no Sony does fit my hands so perfectly. It is...

  • I have a bunch of great EF lenses but I do not want to follow the crazy price development of modern cameras. The RP seems good enough for me and my lenses and it gets the price about right. Good...

  • The RP body reminds me of the simplicity and fun I had with my first 5D. I do not want convoluted cameras anymore that are ergonomic nightmares. The R felt great in hand and I have high hopes for...

  • But this RP seems to be a camera that is actually fun to use...

    Fun aside (haha), the A7II is a great deal if you like it. There are 40 Million lenses and many accessories out there that look...

  • Get the RP or buy a Sony or Nikon, if you need that dynamics.

  • The camera has an inner magnesium frame, seems to have good rubber applications and is pretty compact. Buttons seem to be of good quality (fronosphoto) and camera feels well (fronosphoto). I would...

  • Yes, the marketing blurp is really bad. For example they talk about all the fast and leight lenses, while the truth is that there is just one small RF lens available and nearly everything else is...

  • I really like this streamlined, small body. It reminds me of the simple fun I had with my old 5D. The ergonomics of the R grip was great, so I have high hopes for the RP. Nowadays I use my camera...

  • Sure, the T3 and A7II are good deals. But so is the RP, opening up the Canon ecosystem or having you use your EF lens lineup in a native fashion on this RP body without spending 2K+ Euro. The T3...

  • But here in Europe the competition is higher priced as well. While the RP price „translates“ from $1299 to EUR 1500, the Z6, AIII, R cost up to EUR 2300 as well. The R contains at least the EF...

  • Why would the T3 be different from any other Fuji camera? Wait 2 years before buying a new Fuji: you will end up with a product that is patched up to its potential for half the money.

  • Low-end consumer sales make up 90% of the camera sales. A lot of those are hobbyist. I do use my phone for photography as well to a certain degree. Plus I am not willing to invest several thousand...

  • This isn't the golden age for camera makers, because 99.9% of all photos done and shared where taken with smart phones and the number is still increasing.

    I was at the presentation at my dealer...

  • Canon is gaining market share while minimizing investment. From their perspective they will most probably feel rather successful in this shrinking market. And to earn even more money the replace...

  • First it has to be better than the Fuji 10-24 (which is actually pretty good) and for the price it has to be much better, which then would be a surprise to me especially in the corners.

    Anyhow,...

  • Pack an X-T2 with 10-24 and you do samey things for less than half the money.

    Yes, you can add 16-55 2.8, 23 1.4 and 35 1.4 and still do samey things. OK, those lenses cost about a similar amount...
