Blue Swan Media: To all those complaining about softness up close and wide open - just buy the f/1.4. Cracking sharp.

The XF 23 f/1.4 is the best lens in the world. Period.

For the first time I am disappointed with Fuji. The XF 23 f/2 is NOT that good as the other lenses are, especially the best lens in the world, the XF 23 f/1.4!

The other not-so-good lens ist the zoom XF 16-55 f/2.8, because of the missing OIS.

All other Fuji lenses are stellar, even the "kit-zooms" 16-50 and 18-55. In German photography magazines Fuji lenses lead the table in all major categories.

So, Fuji, you can do better than this xf 23 f/2.

What a shame! Nikon - just another epic fail!

After a highly overrated and overpriced D500, the ongoing downgrading of the 5000 series and still no real DSLM camera, this is the next big disappointment.

Nikon - quo vadis?

photo perzon: The winner here is the Canon G7X. I had the Sony RX100, the II, the III, the IV, and the V. The sony pictures make people look so white, so blanched, they look boring. I bought a Canon G7X and wow! People look tanned, healthy. I am getting wows and requests for reprints, resends, people are commenting on my pictures with interest! One does not need an EVF for night social pictures. For day pictures, yes, but day light is satisfied with any camera. It is high ISO night or indoor pictures that require a special camera and that is the G7X. The G9X is too dark.

Also alternatives for indoor work are the amazing Fuji X70 with its angelic exquisite skin tones, the Nikon A with its perfect jpeg skin tones. The Ricoh GR and the Panasonics are great for buildings and landscapes, but not good for skin tones.

My favorites the Canon G7x and the Fuji X70.

Canon colors are always good, that's true.

SONY builds the best sensors. But in their OWN smartphones they fail - every time! Again and again.

DxO Mark has lost it's good reputation since they gave the Google PIXEL 89 points.
Ridiculous!

I don't think the D500 is a great camera. For one, it's way to expensive.

And it has massive AF problems. So, get a D7200 and save money, e.g. for a nice holiday!

It's THE disappointment of 2016.

PanchoVilla: The XPro2 is looking to be seriously outgunned by the newly announced A6500. Time to sell off my Fuji gear!

Fuji is superior, especially because of their fabulous lenses. And Fuji is providing phantastic firmware updates for their cameras for a long time. My X-E2 is now better than ever and never feels outdated!

I think there's a design fault in the D5.

In reply to:

Alex Velasco: Many people seemed to have missed this:

ABOVE 1600 ISO, the NIKON D5 has the HIGHEST DYNAMIC RANGE of any Nikon tested by DXO (capitals used for clarity.) The Nikon D5 enjoys 0.5 to 1 stop EXTRA dynamic range at higher than 1600 ISO sensitivity than the D4, which was the previous best Nikon tested.

Is that clear?

Clear is:

The D5 has 2 EV less dynamic range in low ISOs, which are the most important ISOs for quality photography.

If you want speed get a D500. If you want overall quality, get a D750 (or A7 II).

In either case, you'll save thousands!

Peter62: Dynamic range is a joke!

Look here:

http://www.photonstophotos.net/Charts/PDR.htm#Nikon%20D5,Nikon%20D750

2 EV (!) less DR compared to the D750 is nothing short of a disaster!

Quality photography is made at low ISO! And here, the D5 is 2 EV (!) worse than the D750. From ISO 1200 and up the D5 is better.

But shouldn't a flagship camera be good at every ISO, especially (!) at low ISO?

So, it is a joke (and a disaster)!

The D5 may be fast, but in terms of dynamic range it seems to be a desaster!

What is AF-speed and build quality good for, when image quality lacks?

At half the price the D500 would be of great value...

Let's face it: No one shoots RAW, especially no sports photographer (for whom the D500 is made for)!

And why should we, when Fuji's JPG-engine is so perfect!?

Peter62: The D500 has no chance against the Fuji X-E2 !

Just try the following, it's the best way to evaluate sensors:

Use DPREVIEWs phantastic Image Comparison Tool.
Switch to LOW LIGHT.
Set ISO 12800 (i.e.).
Compare Fuji X-E2 and Nikon D500.
Buy the Fuji. Forget the overpriced D500.

Sure, the D500 is likely to be better in shooting sports than the X-E2. But here in Germany the D500 costs 4 times more than the X-E2/E2s.

And the image quality of the Fuji is better than the Nikon. You can see here for yourself.

So, I think it will be hard for Nikon to sell the D500 in reasonable amounts.

In reply to:

Michael Ma: It could be they are going full frame and only full frame. Sony pretty much ditched all their cropped sensor mirrorless and is having amazing success with the full frame A7 series. They probably want to compete with Sony, not Canon or Nikon.

For all we know, Samsung may see the NX1 as mission accomplished and as the green light they've been looking for to go full frame. They were awarded the camera of the year in many categories.

And then you discontinue your camera of the year???

Link | Posted on Nov 30, 2015 at 00:07 UTC

Last year on Photokina in Cologne the NX1 was presented with huge effort - and now it's discontinued??

Come on, Samsung, that's ridiculous!
