In reply to:

Substance233: The deal-beaker for me is support. Unfortunately I've had multiple terrible experiences with Samsung... NX1 system (body and lenses), fridge and a washing machine. Absolutely non-existent support every single time. IMO, Apple, whether you love or hate them, offer the best after-sales support of all the big tech companies. The difference is amazing. Google support is non-existent so I won't even go there...

ok I will give it a shot and try apple camera, fridge and washing machine then

Captain Hook: Ludicrous... No other words for this insane collectors insanity. Sorry. :-(
A pure mechanical device could keep its value and would function in a few decades... but a pure electronic device, like this digital camera (electronics, sensor chip, battery circuits, etc.) won't work anymore, in a few years time... let alone you could get any spare parts for it...
Just insane...

Also as ridicoulous as the DPR counting boxes in this topic
57 - I own it
218 - I want it
34 - I had it

Has the world gone crazy, or what? ;-)

that's for non-Oslo version

On article Fujifilm X-A3 Review (238 comments in total)

I have to say that I like Jeff's reviews: straight to the point, clear message: good on paper,real world use not that great.
No beating around the bush.
After reading the review you know what you are (not) buying.

Old Cameras: Sometimes I'm just baffled at the people who take time out of their day to think up something snarky and post it about... a camera company. Really? No, really???
I don't know about you guys but I like photography. I like film, better than digital but I certainly have, enjoy and use both. I have a dedicated darkroom that a built from scratch - it's a separate building - I built it. Two enlargers, running water, heat and a/c and this is strictly a hobby for me. I have shelves full of vintage photography books, I recently bought copies of Barry Thorntons Edge of Darkness and Elements a few months ago. Books on alternative processes. I'm sure my neighbors think it's a meth lab, it kind of looks like one. I come to this site to read about a subject that interests me, I don't have time to offer up my uneducated opinion about why one camera manufacturer is better than another. Who does?
Laugh at me, I just ordered the FTn poster.

seems like you are the "target customer" for this product.
that's fine
but there are some of us out there ,who work outside the film photo lab, who would be keen to see something more substantial.

In reply to:

ProfHankD: Looks perfectly reasonable. So, let's hope this helps bring prices on classic old f/1.2 50-58mm lenses back down to earth.... For example, the Minolta Rokkor 58mm f/1.2 is a truly outstanding lens, but it's often at $500 or more, while I think it's real value is more like $300-$350 (which I paid for mine).

but there is less and less Minoltas surviving and there is eventually endless copies of this lens available ;)

Panasonic, please don't forget to bring LX100 sucessor, thanks

0k, so this confirms that iPhones are bit overpriced?!

my cons:
proprietary charge port
no headphone jack
no wireless charging
more closed ecosystem comparing to Android
high price

I find Canon colours one of the best, however not with this camera it seems....

In reply to:

ProfHankD: Very impressive lineup to develop so quickly. I just wish it would be more feasible to use 135-format SLR lenses with it -- because for that size sensor it should be possible.

is it even possible with a shutter built in the lenses?
