VENTURE-STAR: Sony is a significant shareholder in Tamron, so why is this such a big deal?

Interesting...didn’t know that.

entoman: It's great that Tamron (and others) are expanding their ranges to provide better cover for Sony, and hopefully other mirrorless brands.

What really surprises me, although there may be good reasons for it, is that as far as I'm aware, there are no third-party lenses for Fujifilm's very popular cameras. This would be a lucrative market, as Fujifilm has a significant number of lenses "missing" from it's range.

It does seem like the Sony brand, especially in FF are taking off now.

28-75mm? That’s an odd zoom range IMO. Usually fixed aperture f2.8 standard zooms are in the more useful 24-70mm range no?

Nick8: Has DPR quit reviewing lenses?
The last lens review is more than 1 year old:

Strange...

I’d like to know too! Haven’t read one for a very long time...

Considerably cheaper than Canikon offerings yes, I just hope the price doesn’t reflect the quality and reliability of the lens! Tamron and Sigma have made positive strides in that direction of late...I hope it continues here too.

Shlomo Goldwasser: "It's not totally clear-cut who this camera is for."

Given its price and feature set it is directly competing with the Panasonic G9 and Olympus OMD-EM1mkii, as well as the Nikon D500. While the x-h1 has not been tested yet, its spec sheet and feature set are not as impressive as the competition.

This camera looks like fanservice.

Obsolescence pixel-shift might be tricky on Fuji’s X series due to the non-standard X-Trans sensor’s color filter array, it’s not a simple 4-point grid like with Bayer sensors.

coody: What is its size by comparing with the X-T2 , X-E3 or Sony A6500?

Renenant indeed

In reply to:

photomedium: Anyone has any idea about the internally recorded color depth on this thing?

Only 8 bit, no 10 bit available if that’s what you were hoping for.

Snoddas: Fuji X got the grip at last, now give us some big lenses to match the grip...

A fast and chunky 200mm (300mm equivalent) telephoto is on the way. There are also already a 50-140mm f2.8 and 100-400mm lenses available from Fuji.

RooksTemplar: For us slow-mo lovers how many frames can it put out in 1080?

120 FPS.

A very interesting development, but still feels likes it’s going to be years before actual mass-market cameras receive this tech.

In reply to:

armanius: I wasn't going to get it ... But now ... Was hoping for additional PDAF points to fill the sides of the frame. I guess that will be on the XT3.

Rumoured for release at Photokina this year apparently. I hope that's the case and if so, that it keeps the compact dimensions and lighter weight of the X-T2. And doesn't bulk up too much like the X-H1.

In reply to:

TheWhiteDog: One thing they need to do in firmware quickly: get one of the dials to be able to do exposure compensation. Should be easy to do I think. Also, I'm sure there will be firmware updates galore for other niggles. Will be interesting to see what happens.

This is a new kind of camera for Fuji so there are bound to be firmware niggles, like there was on the original X100 (remember how bad that was?!) but they pretty much fixed it. Firmware upgrades are what Fuji does better than anybody else. Maybe due to the mess that was the firmware of the original X100?

In reply to:

Kwick1: The lack of an exposure compensation dial is a deal-breaker for me. And a bigger grip, extra weight, but no larger battery? Why? Missed opportunity, in my opinion.

Gail44 I've never had the need to use it ever on my Fuji. I only shoot RAW so take care of that (if needed) in post.

In reply to:

John: I am typing from an X-E1 owner perspective looking to upgrade. The good news? Higher resolution EVF sounds interesting. Bad news? No exposure compensation dial like previous models? I use that regularly, so that's bad. Also, same worms and "purple grid" artifacts from this sensor as others? That's worse, and that's why I'm looking at other camera systems. Have way too many worms in my shots, and I went through all the advice on converting RAW to avoid it. All at a higher expense?

Video? Don't care one bit about video. I want a great still camera which is specifically designed to take still photos. I hate these new systems which try to be both still and video cameras, but compromise features in one camp or another.

Bring back the exposure compensation, put a 24 Mbit bayer sensor and keep the color rendering, design it to take still pictures, and I'll buy that.

davev8 I use an X-E2 and haven't noticed any 'worms' ever!

Vegetable Police: Are fully articulating screens a patent that only Panasonic, Canon, Nikon and Olympus are allowed to use? Why are Sony and Fuji rogue demons of the night with screens that only flip up? Guess what finger I'm going to flip up in the direction of this camera? ;)

This camera actually sounds great for people who always shoot behind the camera and in short bursts. But for youtubers or even video based podcasters, the lack of a flip out screen, and the 20 minute recording limit even in HD? Ouch.

If you're going to make a video centric camera, please have a fully articulating screen and pay that tax for unlimited recording. Make every video based camera pass through Peter Gregg's approval ;)

I think a fully articulating screen is more appropriate for a video oriented camera too, it should of had one. Leaving the more discrete design it does have for stills oriented cameras like the X-T2...IMO anyway.

In reply to:

TheWhiteDog: If you like the form factor, for $300 over the X-T2 it's appealing even if you are just a stills shooter. IBIS, stronger body, better EVF, better AF, option of using a touchscreen if you wish, Bluetooth, etc would all be reasons for someone attracted to the X-T2 for stills to consider this instead. I just notice they are "bundling" it with the weather sealed 16-55mm f2.8 non OIS lens for a savings of $150-very smart!

I believe many X-T2 users also find its compactness and lighter weight important too. The X-H1 is a lot bulkier and heavier than that camera.

In reply to:

arhmatic: Fujifilm, you've nailed all the major tech specs.

Next, focus on the fine touches, that add character to any product. Focus on high-quality materials. no, not the "lunar" type of plastic, but stay away from rubber that ages and rubs within months. Focus on the little things that matter at the exterior. Maybe use a more stylish font. Leica has one. Maybe the menus need to actually be designed. Same wording, same functions, just a more inspiring interface. Maybe revisit the thick mark spacing on the ISO dial (more space around the L, A, H marks, that are the most common. Maybe the sense of depth at dials need a little revision. Please study a little bit more the entire "feel" of the camera. It does matter, trust me. Subconsciously.

Me too, the menu design looks ancient and ugly! Reminds me of 80s era computer displays, not nice! This camera is supposed to have a more robust build quality than previous X cameras though...I hope that's the case all the way through and its not just cosmetic. There have been niggling quality control issues with the X-T2.

In reply to:

FoxShutter: Its quite a big and heavy camera for APSC sensor!

Big for a mirrorless APS-C camera that is. And too big and heavy for me. It might not be as bulky as the DSLRs mentioned above, but it comes close to my EOS-80D which I find too uncomfortable to schlepp around lately (only use it for high-speed sports/wildlife now) for everything else I use an X-E2, and I'm sticking with it for the time being, because of the X-H1s bulk. I'm just not the target audience for this camera.
