In reply to:

Peiasdf: X-Pro is the poser camera for those that wants to look like they are carrying a film Leica but don't know how to MF and develop film. Most X-Pro are just fashion accessory and never used. The photographers I know that actually do street photography use X100, RX100 or just their phone.

X-T is actually the flagship of the lineup and for those that actually intend to take photos. X-E is the budget X-T.

(@ peiasdf)Than maybe you don't know that many Fuji (xpro)shooters at all?
Or Fuji camera's for that matter? " The XE is the budget XT " ....????

Nikonandmore: My honest 2 cents? The X-Pro2 was just released & already looks like a dated camera. I find this all a bit too ridiculous. There are too many cameras on the market already & too more many being released too fast that are all too similar to each other. Looks like everyone just makes the same camera again & again & again with minimum invovation. The amount of cameras that are all basically the same among different brands & even models of the same brand, is astonishing. And no one knows how to name cameras anymore other than calling everything "something X". This industry becomes a mix of boredom, endless higher cost & minimal true advancements. There are more new cameras being released faster than fresh milk bottles at the supermarket. Im surprised no one is making these disposable yet to accelerate the process even more.. or cameras able to self-destruct itself a few months later so we keep buying more "same" stuff even faster.. of course, they need to be called the "D-iXposable"..

@T3 + 1 and then some

photogeek: I had an X-T1. I'd be fine sticking with Fuji if it wasn't for three things:
1. Lenses have slow and noisy focus mechanism
2. Metering is nowhere near as good as the competition, often under- or over-shoots.
3. Poor support of the sensor layout in Lightroom and elsewhere. Yes, it's poor even with all the improvements Adobe has made.

Ultimately #1 made me sell it. Lenses were otherwise excellent, but in this day and age I expect silent and fast autofocus.

My x Pro2 with 18-55 are pretty much pretty silent....

In reply to:

ecxs: I would have given this camera a gold award just for the improved autofocus alone. I had the xpro1 and now have the xpro2. The speed improvement and reliability is just worlds away. Of course I understand there are other cameras to compare it with other than the the xpro1. Just my humble O.

+1! But not just for the improved AF. I too had the Pro 1. I loved that camera in spite of whatever! This one I love, I love, I love, I......

In reply to:

straylightrun: I reckon Fujifilm intentionally puts these bugs in so they can release more firmware updates and people will think they are cutting edge and up to date because they are always “supporting” their products. Fuji fanboys eat this up!

Sometimes I really wish there would be a DEF NOT LIKE button!

Gerardjan: @team DPR.... actually, my remark/comment, actually, has nothing to do here, but as I read comments/questions about reviews coming/not coming, I will ask once more, and this time I hope to get an answer. Though I am really surprised(pleasantly!) about this review will there ever be a review on f.ex the canon EOS M? Any M?(preferably now the last one?) I am not a Canon user, I am a Fuji user. This is my 4th time asking. (Of course now hoping we very very soon too now may be reading reviews on the new Fuji cameras! Thank you in advance!

Okay, thank you Richard!

MrTaikitso: In 1995 or so whilst living in California, I had a Logitech Pixtura digital camera (740 x 648 resolution). I flew my mum out from the UK for a once in a lifetime holiday where we hit Yosemite. Took some amazing photos, 144 in fact, filling up the in built memory. In all my life as a photographer, the most amazing shot was of a chipmunk staring direct into the lens at 1" or so.

I wanted to take one or two additional photos on our last day, so hit the erase frame button to delete a few of the most recent images and free up the in built memory. (There was no built in preview display, just a mono LCD frame counter.) After hitting [Delete] the hourglass remained on the screen for quite a while, which was odd. It then finished erasing what I assumed was the last picture I had taken.

To my horror, the frames remaining counter showed 144/144.

I plugged the camera into my PowerBook and there was nothing on the memory in the camera. I had hit [Erase All] in error losing ALL the photos. Cried.

In the film days - 1972 or there about, my sister got married. My brother in law, too cheap that time to get a REAL photographer,asked his brother (a very good friend of mine) to take pictures. His brother being a nice guy said "ok, I'll do that but I haven't got a clue!!" "No problem, my in law said, just take my camera and start making pictures!" So he did, he took the camera and all day long he shot the pictures! He must have shot hundreds!!! The next morning my brother in law said to him" Now give me the films so we can have them developed. Then my friend said" Film's....?? You didn't put ......

stevelilly: I remember walking in to the Comp USA store in Tyson's Corner, Virginia and seeing this camera. I decided I had to have it. $1000 later and it was my first digital camera. I still have it and if functions as new.

I also remember shooting a car show in Ocean City, Maryland walking around with a box of 100 3 1/2 inch floppy's.

Here is a link to the first pictures I took with the camera in 1999 and some from the OC Car Show.

Very very nice Steve! Wish we had these shows in the Netherlands.
And the (digital)quality of the pictures don't seem too bad either aye?

bootsofspanishleather: I am a rather new member and I must say that the few dopey questions I have asked have usually been answered with great information and a lack of sarcasm and judgement. They were not dopey on purpose. If anyone would like to visit the images in my portfolio you will at least know that I am not just obsessed with cameras but sing them to shoot, share, publish et. So without further ado, just purchased a new Fuji X Pro1 and bam I read the rumor page and it says Fuji X Pro2 verified rumor will be introduced this year. Besides offering the advice, "just shut up and shoot', What would you do? Is this even the right spot to leave my qesriom

Don't worry too much about it.I also just bought the X Pro 1,well aware of the rumors. It's all about IQ right?I can assure you,you wont be disappointed! Far away from it.And I really wonder whether the IQ(mind you, IQ!)will be very different from this one.
All else, yes for sure.

In reply to:

Mirrorless Crusader: DPR why are you giving almost every half-decent camera a gold star now? Literally a large a majority of $600+ cameras now are getting gold stars, it completely dilutes the rating system and makes it look like you are just using it as a marketing ploy to sell cameras at Gear Shop. Can't you come up with a system where only a few cameras at most each year get the top award? Then we would actually know which you really think are best, because right now it looks like you're just trying to satisfy everybody and as a result satisfying nobody.

@mapgraphs: just my thoughts, I will try again, DPR,where's the eos m review? Please, any kind of answer! Thank you.
