Jefftan: this is Fuji version of A5100 both $600

but Sony with the garbage kit lens, X-A3 with a good kit lens
and Fuji X mount lens lineup now available

Which one will u choose?

"Fuji lens line up is dramatically better than Sony's E-mount lineup"
not only that but Sony completely abandon APS-C lens lineup
no more new lens

just today Fuji add 23mm F2
$600 is worth it just for having access to Fuji X-mount lens lineup in my opinion

if no need 4k and fast action sports photography
X-A3 clear winner although it probably use the old A6000 sensor not the new A6300 copper sensor (which will have maybe 1/2 stop better high ISO)

XC 16-50mm F3.5-5.6 OIS II

TomRoskay: What, if anything, is expected to make this technology superior to the JPEGmini Pro product (by Beamr Ltd.), which I now use to create JPEGs that have been flawlessly compressed far beyond that of a normal JPEG, with no discernible degradation?

As a user of that stand-alone software and Photoshop Plug-in for the past several months, I have been amazed at the resulting image quality and the rather dramatic decrease in file sizes. It too breaks up the image into small pieces and generates what it considers to be the most aggressive compression for each piece, such that one cannot see a discernible difference between the resulting image and that a normal JPEG of the highest quality.

what u said is true if u do not try to adjust jpeg
this is not a drawback to most as most won't PP jpeg

if u try to brighten shadow or rescue highlight from jpeg
than the compressed jpeg mini is not suitable

i like this program a lot. what u said is correct
if u don't adjust jpeg, it is the same as original with maybe 1/3 file size

jpegmini already do this

really useful program and really work

Even Sony APS-C may be threaten.
Fuji X mount clearly win on lens line

now a $600 camera get 24MP. If one don't need 4k or shoot sports
Fuji-XA3 become very attractive with the availability of all X mount lens like 18mm F2 pancake

Sony E-mount lens line is pretty much dead and current one are average at best
for myself I will rethink if I am going to buy a A6300 or not

Now the entry price to Fuji 24MP is becoming much lower but I am almost sure this 24 MP not the same copper sensor in A6300

this must be the old one in A6000 with high ISO penalty of maybe 1/2 to 1 stop

for 28mm u can digital zoom in a bit to make it 35mm
trust me really no big deal for today 24 MP sensor

u can't do the reverse and make 35mm become 28mm

too narrow for me
for landscape at least 18mm (27mm equivalent) is needed
16mm (24mm equivalent) even better

Thank you. Fuji
This is a pleasant surprise. I think X-A2 is the end of the line
like the stupid decision Panasonic kill the GM line

they will paid the price, cheap and light entry level camera still has lots of demand
especially in Asia. As an Asian I know most hate heavy camera
they just tolerate it

very attractive to me, I have resist X-A1 X-A2
hanging on to me NEX-5N but this time i will buy

anyone with X-A1 X-A2 can comment on AF? not speed which i don't care as landscape phtographer
most important is AF accuracy and low light AF (have focus peaking?)

many thanks

Can someone kindly explain to me (never use DSLR) what is AF tuning
Af tuning need to be done on D3400? or even able to do AF tuning on D3400?

What I know is AF tuning not done, image won't be tack sharp (slightly blur)

Also any ultra wide option for APS-C DX mount?
Thanks

Now at 400 gram same weight as A6300 , this is becoming more interesting to me

May I ask what great lens option exist for APS-C F mount?

I am interested in ultra wide angle and fast wide prime
Thanks

wayne131: There seem's no end to the Fuji bashing.
People constantly complaining about the price of the lenses. You must be having a laugh. The quality and finish of there lenses is stunning.
Fuji produce fantastic cameras and have simply the best firmware updates of any camera manufacturer.
If you want to buy a product when it is first released, expect to pay a premium price.
I recently purchased a "used/mint" X-E2 body and the superb 18-55mm kit lens for £500.00. The original ticket price was still on the box - £1199.00.
In addition I also purchased a used X-M1 for £95.00 !!
The only camera I purchased new was the X-T10. It's handling and button layout suits me more than any other camera I have owned. And it represents incredible value.
I have no brand "loyalty" and shoot with several other brands of camera.
The biggest single advantage of Fuji? The files it produces require the least amount of post - processing.
Have a nice day.

" this doesn't even show the capabilities of Capture One on Bayer sharpening"

What is that mean?

Joe Ogiba: My Samsung S6 Edge Plus is smaller and thinner but has a larger 5.7" 1440p AMOLED display . It has 16mp and that is enough for me IMHO. I also like the Samsung fast wireless charger and Gear S smartwatch.

I am amazed at the IQ of my girlfriend S6 in base ISO
lots of detail looks like it can a good lens

more detail than my NEX with kit lens
amazing , have to seen to believe

unfortunately only at base ISO
so no replacement for real camera

On article Fujifilm X-Pro2 versus X-T2: Seven key differences (362 comments in total)

I am not trying to be a troll, but ask a serious question
Why should people buy either one and not A6300 which is $600 or $700 cheaper

if u answer lens, I disagree. There are many lens option on Sony side
seriously, why?

Seriously why do I want to paid $600 more and not just get a A6300?
60% more !

There are lots of rich people in this world, sadly not me
Question is will I buy this if I am rich? Answer is no
Lots of lens I would buy if I am rich like Zeiss Batis for Sony FE

Why? the weight. If I can stand the weight which I can't
at 400 gram roughly the same weight,
12-40 F2.8 would be much more useful although 2 stop slower

On article DxO OpticsPro 11 brings advanced Raw noise reduction (110 comments in total)
In reply to:

Mike FL: I wish DxO [view point] will have better De-fisheye ability/control for "Samyang 7.5mm f/3.5 Fisheye (MFT)" for example.

I do not have lot of experience for PP software, but I think "DxO view point 2" is on par with others in terms of De-fisheye based on my limited knowledge.

So, does any body and/or DPR know a better De-fisheye software?

Is there lens profile for using DXO Viewpoint to de-fish?
I mean all automatic? Thanks

In reply to:

Dr_Jon: I've now done some tests with 11 and I'm still not happy with the moire handling (well, as the moire I was trying to fix looks the same with the moire tool off and set to maximum I suspect "lack of moire handling" would be a better term). It seems the same as DXO 10 which is very annoying to me. Other than that I think it's a great product and the advances to Prime seem really good.
(Silkypix Pro 7 fixes the moire without even ticking the box to fix moire, which is very cool, the moire brush in Lightroom also fixes it.)
