Too much grain even at base ISO

JakeB: There's just a certain 'something' about those shots. An aura. A 'feeling.'

It would be ridiculous to suggest that any other manufacturer's camera/lens combinations costing a tenth of the price could create this 'look.'

It's almost like Leica sprinkled a little, well, let's call it 'pixie dust' into their cameras and lenses and that magic travels along the lens to the sensor and is captured along with the rays of light.

Or perhaps the sensor itself contains this pixie dust and thus imbues the image with the 'aura.'

No matter how it works, one can immediately spot this 'Leica look' that no other camera is capable of creating. It positively glows from each image.

Money well spent, I'd say.

LOL =) Leica M is a camera, and if you take it to studio it becomes studio camera... ok, just ask Google «leica M studio shots» and you'll find something interesting!

P.S. Anyways you always can show me your non-studio masterpieces =)

villagranvicent: For Sigma the only criteria to produce a lens is sharpness. They don't care about bokeh, chromatic aberrations, reliable AF mechanisms or anything else. And many of their customers are happy with that.

villagranvicent: absolutely =)

It's just a words. No examples. I had M lenses and had film Leica, thanks

It's always «An aura. A 'feeling.'», when you lost big money, it's kind of mantra for self-excuse =)

Leica is a dangerous camera to blame... if I say I don't like it's IQ, I'll automatically go to lowlifes, that just «can't afford it». So I'll say just... wow, camera looks great! Is it ok?

In reply to:

Greg7579: Spot on.... It is the camera that makes you want to get out and shoot. Yes, all of the pieces did come together on this amazing camera. On top of that, don't forget the amazing Fuji glass that you will attach to this beautiful camera. I shot Nikon and Canon for over 40 years, and I still have my full frame Canon and closet full of L lenses. But Fuji is what I take with me when I head out the door for almost any shoot (especially travel).

I have several thousand XT-2 images posted here if anyone is bored enough to care....

Your images are great example of water-painting =)

On article Field Test: Wedding Photography with the Fujifilm X-T2 (233 comments in total)
In reply to:

Jo Lovell: I have no doubt that this is a great little camera and yes the jpeg colours look excellent on the whole.

BUT - I didn't spot a single criticism or caveat about wedding suitability, except perhaps

- battery life (positive spin: "it's great to attach a battery pack to carry around all day!")
- something about changing lenses more than usual (no one wants to carry around more glass than they have to)

The full review clearly states that "Subject tracking, while good, is not dependable enough for professional use". Yet this video implies it is - the camera "didn't miss a beat" as the light went down.

Having shot weddings professionally in the past, battery life, weight, lens versatility (perhaps related to high ISO performance because with great high ISO slower but more versatile zoom lenses become more acceptable) and low light AF are not minor issues.

Recent sponsored content has been good and engaging, but for me this felt uncomfortably close to crossing a line.

Fujifilm has a very aggressive marketing politics. Look how many endorsers heap the praises on it...

JEROME NOLAS: Where's the famous red dot? Or at least smaller, reddish one?

It costs...

Link | Posted on Nov 3, 2016 at 18:03 UTC

Insane price for small sensor! Let's speak just about stills quality...
Cheaper FF cameras: Nikon D750, Sony Alpha a7 II, Canon EOS 6D
Matching prices: Canon EOS 6D with 24-105mm f/4L and Adobe Creative Cloud Photography Plan Kit, Nikon D610 with 24-85mm, Sony Alpha a7 II with FE 28-70mm f/3.5-5.6 OSS, Sony Alpha a7R
