Jer81: Really? This was the huge Sony announcement that should take place end of this month? Where are the rumored Alpha cameras?

A7SIII ?

(unknown member): Again, X-T20 (the Fuji that TRULY needs new FW!) is left out in the cold while the nice and warm X-T3 and X-T30 get warmer.

Where's the Bernie Sanders of FW???

I wouldn't expect major updated after new generation of hardware is introduced.

Jostian: And the XH1 is just forgotten, kaizen my *#$# the XH1 hasn't had an update in well over a year, Fuji used to provide regular firmware updates, but now I don't buy their kaizen rubbish anymore.

X-H1 was based on tech introduced by X-T2. By the time it arrived Fujifilm has introduce all updated for this hardware generation they planed/could. Don't expect updates that are coming to new hardware.

Hausner85: I'm pretty sure that the "8K" will be a useless gimmick. There will be no PD AF or huge crop, no log or it will overheat. Or any other property that will make it just a marketing slogan instead of something useful.

@iShootWideOpen
Nope. It would be great if Canon manage to pull of that. But just the facts that Panasonic S1H needs a fan for cooling at 6k points out how insane power requirements are for this.

thx1138: $800 camera with a LCD that makes a mockery of Sony’s flagships FF costing 4-5x as much. Looks like a pretty decent upgrade which is refreshing after the tripe Sony offered up in the A6600 and A9II. But gee that battery life is looks circa 2012 mirrorless, utter crap, not that they are alone.

I hope the XT-4 is as big an upgrade and adds IBIS and a few new sports/wildlife lenses, it’s not living up to it’s potential.

2x as much is "much more" especially if some is just a casual photographer. You insist on your personal limited perspective. If you are professional/enthusiast you defiantly should splash the money on A7III. If you are beginner/casual shooter moving from smartphone X-T200 with bigger/better back screen touch interface Bluetooth and lower weight make Fuji a better choice for you.

Amnon G: Interesting camera for people like me who have the X-T20. I decided not to go for the X-T30 as it's not that big of a difference from the X-T20.
It seems like Fuji now abandoned the D-pad which I really like on the X-T2 because of the configurability and quickly changing parameters like ISO, and there's nothing like physical buttons for muscle memory.
However the screen is great (better than any Fujifilm camera AFAIR), which means the next updated model gets it or similar (OK, maybe not the X-Pro4 😉).

You can use joystick exactly like D-pad. But bigger body cameras will like X-T4 will most likely retain the d-pad.

A7 II is not a very good camera very poor AF and the CIPA batter rating is 350 so it's worse then X-T200. And compering is to camera that "costs a little over twice as much" is laughable.

Far better then what would you expect from kit at this price point. Good lens.

ekaton: Why the many negative comments? Sony just released the currently most capable aps-c milc.

Don't forget more direct controls and dual slots. But the point was it was the most capable. And with those omissions this title isn't deserved.

Not really. There important areas where it lags after Fujifilm X-T3 for example

thomas2279f: Simply superb releases again from Sony ahead of the competition in all sectors (compact, bridge, APS and FF).

Hopefully will wake up and finally release their APS ML system - bug bear of mine as one day my D7xxx may give up and would like to buy a Nikon APS ML - not another system.

Ahead of competition without 4K60p dualslot and front dial?

In reply to:

plantdoc: Canon should have updated the M5, but just my opinion of course. The external evf is awkward if you want a viewfinder most of the time and takes just about as much bag space as built in. The 15-45 lens also needs a QC and IQ update.

The will M5 is next obviously.

In reply to:

TORN: I wonder why those cameras from Fuji do not utilize the „vastly superior“ xtrans pattern... ;-))) Following Fuji logic this camera could be so much better. Or the other way around: why not stop this nonsense with the x-series?

I use Fujifilm and love it. But i agree. X-trans may have been useful at 16mp but now it is redundant. It offers no advantage and create some small inconveniences. But Japaneses companies are often very stubborn and when they accept one idea they have a problem of letting it go.

In reply to:

CanonKen: Surprised there are not more comparisons to the Sony 16-70mm f/4

I own and love this lens (thought we will see if that lasts, as it broke, generated a $270 repair, which failed, and is going back for a under-warranty rework...). This is the perfect travel lens for me. Small enough to never be in the way, but bright and versatile enough for almost anything.

Really glad to see a Fuji version (granted, a little bigger and heavier). If the Sony repair fails, I might ditch them and give Fuji a try.

Yep... I had 16-70 it was quite decent but overpriced. And i had a good one...

On article Sony a6400 vs Fujifilm X-T30: Which is best for you? (454 comments in total)
In reply to:

Lan: So, DPreview, which crop frame camera is better for wildlife shooting: A6400, D500, or 7Dmk2?

I see a lot of comparisons of the A6400 vs X-T30 (which is logical given they're both new and mirrorless), but I've seen very few comparisons with the existing high end crop frame dSLRs.

Or do you think we should wait for the rumoured A6600, D500s, and/or 7Dmk3 most of which must be logically coming soon?

D500... If not for anything else just the lenses are enough to chose it for this application. 7Dmk2 is outdated and

Dr_Jon
I agree that it would be more expensive then today beginners camera. But i don't think that in near future there is any room for standalone cameras that overlap with smartphones. Cameras should be starting where smartphones reach their limit. Because below this line it's better for 85%+ to just buy a better smartphone.

@em28
Buy a Fujifilm... The X-T20 is quite cheap now. And a pleasure to use.
@Revenant
They did, i did. But these types of cameras are no longer suitable for people that grown up holding a smartphone in their hand.
@Dr_Jon
I would say that as this point almost all manufacturer fail to introduce new people to photography.
My perfect camera for beginners would be probably be a mix of everything. Some thing similar to EOS-,M6 APS-C, in format with power zoom, bigger and better screen, ibis, full touch controls, perfect app and instant reliable transfer to smartphone with no hassle, AI integration, modern menus, 4k30 and great AF, a Fujifilm like controls would be also a nice addition. Price 700+ 800+ not the most important factor. I believe there is no point selling cameras that are in any substantial factor worse then best smartphone. Picking a camera should mean that is visible batter then smartphone with little effort.
