  • I don't mind having an inexpensive model that comes with an EVF.  What Fuji is missing for me is a wide range superzoom that would cover 16-200 that I can carry around for vacation.  Right now, ...
  • For me, I rather have a faster lens than a longer zoom range, but then, I am probably in the minority.  So, 25/2.8 over 24/3.3 for me.  Assuming that the sensor IQ is the same, I will take ...
