Jefftan: ignore all the negative naysayers, this is the best APS-C mirrorless camera money can buy, period
just the in body IS make it the best, no argument needed

problem is the lens, if Sony or 3rd party can deliver some good lens
other competitors are all dead

no matter how hard I want to try Fuji, if I try it will only be X-A3
I can't trust the X-Trans sensor with all those controversy and it don't have in body IS

if A6300/A6500 sell well, sooner or later 3rd party like Sigma would step in
I am surprise it only make a MC11 and not same native lens like the 18-35 F1.8 art
if made for E-mount it could be smaller than DSLR lens

there is money to be made as the demand is there
Even if Sony did abandon APS-C lens (still don't know if Sony would eventually care APS-C after somewhat done with FE) , 3rd party would step in

Why don't make lens for #1 mirrorless system, so few 3rd party opton now surprise me

Maybe because A6000 buying would not buy lens, if A6300/A6500 sell well than the game change

In my eye jpeg color very cold, not nice
funny I often hear Canon people attack Sony color
to me Sony clearly better color

Jefftan: Very confusing, what is this really mean?

"This touch-to-focus ability extends to video mode and video focus speed can be adjusted to provide slow, smooth autofocus pulls. However, the camera's touch-and-track ability is limited to the older 'Center Lock-on AF' function, with 'Lock-on AF' area modes unavailable in video, meaning you'll have to re-engage the function every time you shoot video (because otherwise it becomes the only AF mode - and a poorly performing one at that - available with the touchscreen in stills)."

Thanks for reply
I am not familiar with Sony AF system

Jefftan: "But shooting video this way is pretty annoying as you must wait until your subject is dead center to begin tracking"

Can't u move the camera and put the subject in the center?
Why annoying? don't understand

I seldom shoot video, I am mainly still
so I think no problem put subject in center
maybe u are right

Actually I will buy X-A3 to use with my Sony A6500 and 10-18 which is the only lens that make me stay in Sony system

From now on, any expensive lens purchase go to Fuji and use with X-A3
for Sony besides 10-18mm no lens I want to buy or worth buying for the price,feature and quality

I carry 2 camera with me on photographic trip

In reply to:

Jefftan: X-A3 not only the best budget camera
it may beat a lot of expensive camera if u don't need 4k, fast AF
many don't need this, don't get brainwash by camera company

like me who do landscape

But if you can only paid $500 this is best camera you can buy
period

In reply to:

pacnwhobbyist: Hopefully this camera won't have stock issues like the X-A3 has had thus far. It was in stock for a minute a few weeks back here in the US and since that time has been backordered with no indication of when it will start shipping again. It seems like since the X-A1 and X-A2 didn't sell a lot of copies in the US, Fuji decided to get overly conservative but went too far in the other direction as far as stock is concerned.

Outside of that, I really don't have an issue with this camera. Yes, the kit lens is a bit of a porker but it's great glass to start out with. People say that the Sony A5100 is a more compelling choice due to 24MP but the reality is that the kit lens doesn't come anywhere close to resolving that level of resolution from the sensor. So my money is on the Fuji for sharper photos and better detail resolution. You can never argue with more cheap APS-C options on the market.

I have heard rumors X-A3 delay cause by legal isssues
they get sue for patents
don't know if true

Jefftan: Just the lens is worth the price of $500
Sony 16 MP sensor is very good, I am still using my NEX-5N

24MP can get u more digital zooming but if u do do that, 16MP just fine
cheap way to get into Fuji lens system

I am sick and tired of Sony APS-C poor lens system
Even this 16-50 kit lens maybe better than expensive Zeiss 16-70 F4

But if I buy I would get X-A3 for only $100 more, that 8 extra MP useful for digital zoom

"Bhima78

That is a st4aight kit lens, not the 18-55 2.8-4. That lens is worth $500."

Worth every penny, look at how much Sony Zeiss 16-70mm F4 cost, $1000 !!!
1 stop brighter in the wide end for the 18-55mm

just 2 reasonably price kit lens Fuji have 16-50 and 18-55 can satisfy most need

I won't be surprised if even the 16-50 is better than 16-70mm Zeiss
the 18-55mm definitely better than Zeiss

Buy a cheap XA to get into Fuji lens system is a very good idea in my opinion

In reply to:

Jefftan: Even this $500 camera, sensor IQ better than $2000 E-M1 II
I don't know what people think.

I agree there is some interesting lens in MFT system
to me is the small and cheap telephoto pancake Lumix 35-100 mm F4-5.6

but just buy he cheapest and lightest body to use these lens like GF7 ,E-M10 II . E-PL8...etc
Buying heavy and expensive MFT make no sense to me
but that is your money

There are different need for different people
But if one mostly shoot static subject like landscape

no reason to buy expensive and heavy MFT like E-M1 II
D3400, X-A3, A6000 make more sense

my opinion is MFT recent direction of "professional"
which mean expensive and heavy totally wrong

I would only buy the lightest and cheapest MFT body to use some lightweight telephoto lens:

current pick :
camera: GF7 (not for sale in US but still available elsewhere like Japan)
lens: pancake lumix 12-100mm F4-5.6
lumix 45-150mm F4-5.6

both amazing lens consider their reach, weight and price
everything from camera to lens cheap and lightweight
to me that is what MFT should be

if one day lightweight body like GF7 gone (GM already got killed, stupid decision) than bye bye MFT
My main camera is NEX-5N and will soon upgrade to A6500. In the future will move to Fuji

No way MFT will be my main camera, well that's what I think, right or wrong
you guys can make your decision

In reply to:

tkbslc: They really need a pancake zoom if they want this to be attractive. Sure the camera is small, pretty and cheap, but then it has a kit lens that would be more at home on a DSLR. If they had a lens like the Panasonic 12-32 to put on it, it would be a really nice setup.

Either that, or bundle it with the 27mm f2.8 pancake.

I hate to have to open and close the 12-32mm
it is very inconvenient

yes it look nice and may sell camera
but i would rather the lens longer than have to open and close
also optical quality suffer for all pancake zoom
12-32 optical quality OK but again very inconvenient

Link | Posted on Dec 2, 2016 at 04:13 UTC

is this a 50mm f2 fix lens?
