On article Elevating X-Trans? Fujifilm X-T2 Review (2206 comments in total)
In reply to:

Rainer2022: The camera is very capable for such a little guy...
firmware updates (now version 4.00) adressed some issues with AF and AF at low light.
One issue, however needs to be addressed: During outside shooting in bright light I notice there is a very distractive brightness flickering of the EVF, as soon as half pressing the shutter or short after switching the cam "on".
* switching to "boost mode" does not solve the problem
* switching from EVF auto brightness to manual brightness not always solves the problem
* switching from manual exposure preview "on" to "off" solved the problem today.
One of the advantages of EVF is this manual exposure preview... so what...
Do you also have this issue in bright daylight?

I do not have that problem

@Tomasz_Wk - same here in November 2020. If this came out today with latest FW updates it would give most APS_C cameras a run for their money or better.

This is SO much camera for the money, the build, the controls, that massive EVF, the amazing AF....

One thin that really bugs me about this review is the sample photos really do not do this camera justice.

I shoot it with a 23mm F2 and also the 18-55 and this has frankly astonishing IQ, AF and all the rest right now at the end of 2020. No IBIS lol.... never needed it....

One thing is QC though. Had to send it in for repair early in it's life and they replaced the whole front board. Only ever had to send three digital cameras for repair since 2005 one was a 2005 Lumix LZ1, the other two were Fujifilm cameras, both soon after buying them. That said Fujifilm UK were fast, efficient and a pleasure to deal with and both times fixed free of charge and quickly.

I voted I want it. But there should be an 'I want it but can't afford it' option :P I do want it but i cannot afford it for sure.

Darren James: I don’t know who buys these, but I’m happy that someone does if it keeps Leica in the game. There’s too much attrition lately, having diverse players in the market is better for consumers overall.

I think it's nuts I had an M10 and sold it in preference of my X-T2... Better feel, better performance and I'm not talking burst shooting or anything. 6 x less cost...
As for IQ, just go to the Leica forum and realise the IQ is no better than any modern camera. I don;t get it. Then again I'm not rich :P

EOS GUY: Beach photo blue hue, typical bad sony colours (from later cameras, some were good ie RX100 III) Compare to a Pansonic like the LX100 1 or 2 and you wonder how this got such a high score

Cat's eye photo nothing in focus, again how 85%

Surfing photo shows only that if you blaze away in auto you may get a focussed shot of a bad expression and miss the actual decisive moment so would have been better off just being patient rather than utilising spray and pray

Oh well

no

In reply to:

Gary Martin: Paired with the 28 f2.0, could make a nice street shooter. I wouldn't want to use a body like this with anything other than small-ish lenses.

But for a lot less just get an x-e3 and Xf 18mm

They never did what they could to reduce costs as claimed. They sold smaller than APSC chip cameras for the same price mostly as larger sensor cameras. To survive they will need to offer APSC or FF cameras. Or make a play to high end like Fujifilm and offer MF or larger. To survive you either take a cut cost or invest in growth approach. Rich people will ALWAYS by expensive things so a growth approach seems the best option. Raise or fold.

Mac Daddy: Huh, I checked BCN to see if DSLRs are selling well, and the top 3 ILCs are DSLRs (with another at #7). Even more of a surprise, the next 3 were mirrorless, 2 Olympus and 1 Panasonic.
Olympus has 3 of top 4 mirrorless in fact, and the next mirrorless is a Canon M followed by the Nikon Z50.
Not what I expected for top 10. 3 Olympus, 3 Canon, 3 Nikon, 1 Panasonic. 4 DSLRs (top 3 + #7), and 6 mirorless.

If you're not fussed about size, you can't beat a dslr for great functionality while at the same time being on the more affordable side of things. Plus the EF-S lenses are swell and affordable. My SL1 and 24mm F2.8 STM still takes as good pictures as my X-T2 and 23mm F2 up to ISO 3200 and not shooting sports. And the SL1 and that lens together cost about the same as the Fujifilm lens. (All my personal gear is always bought GM or mint used.) Hard to go wrong with a Canon no matter what format IME and I own and have owned many brands and sensor sizes and they all have their great points.

I redact my comments. The two I said I liked the best I stick to but I was not fairly taking into account the contest is about new photographers and in that context the rest are actually very decent too. I was judging as though it was a major award contest and that was not the case. Peace

Photos 12 and 13 which are under the buttons 13 and 14 - so the one of Jeff and the lady in China were great for me. The rest we could see similar on any dpr manufacturer forum weekly snaps thread.. . The portraits were technically all very good and the man fixing his roof are nice photos but nothing out of the ordinary. Just my opinion. By this I mean I can go on any university photography department website and see as good work from BA students etc. The one with the man in white in the entrance of the white house is very good if candid and not staged. For the sake of perspective I like street photography so like seeing very unique photos and by that I mean the best from the genre, not person walking down street carrying some shopping and convert to B&W :) Of course these are single images and all technically excellent so I'm sure the respective photographer's actual whole body of associated images are really good. Cheers

EOS GUY: Samsung Nx1 has pretty much as good a sensor as a D5300 / A6000 / 80D / X-T20 etc and not as good lens selection as the Canon or Fuji.

What's the big deal over it? Am I missing something? No offense to anyone or to Samsung but why the nostalgia for it? Just curious. Cheers

From the review it's performance in terms of AF were fast but not good in all light. It seemed essentially to keep up with it's peers both DSLR - D7200, Canon 7D II etc and M/less - Fuji, M43 etc. It says it had great file sin good light but not as good as the Nikon for example for DR and low light. Cheers

Awesome article. It made me realised I changed from film to digital just after, in 2003 with my first ever digital camera, the Panasonc DMC LZ1. Lovely colour JPEGS

Nice little camera that was. B&W pics stand up to almost A4 size.

The dream was to have a Canon D60 but none of us could afford one (or rather wouldn't spend that much on one.)
