chev3100: A update is fixing software errors, hardware errors and providing functionality that the mfg should have provided right from start since its already built in. This is disenfranchising consumers - its not a freebie. You paid for it and you did not get it when you spent your cash on it. Adding functionality is...like clicking a checkbox...no effort on the side of the mfg who actually licences the cameras OS. The name firmware is also misleading. Its a software update.

Ridiculous, if you are trying to convince anyone here that you NEVER update your cellphone or computer “because it should been finished the day it was released” I have bad news for you... No one believes you, 2021 dude, wake up and welcome the new, fast-changing and constantly getting update it new world, this isn't 1984 anymore and there isn't a single system out there not getting updated frequently (all thanks to Fuji/Pana/Oly

PremiumBitter: A rare middle-ground for these comments:

These are great lenses.

These are overpriced.

What if I told you both things can be true?!

These lenses look great (focus breathing and loca are not a big concern for the way I shoot) but…$600 is a big ask. Unlike Most people here, I don’t think they should be $200, and I’m not going to quote the prices of ancient film-era-designed-50mm-optics for aging DLSR cameras that can barely resolve 10 megapixels to make my point…but…how bout $100-$200 cheaper? That would be the sweet spot for glass like this. These are priced in an awkward middle ground that makes me think: either go big and get the 24/1.4 or go home and get the 28/2.0.

Agreed, for introduction price that's pretty good, in a year or two they won't be hard to find for $400 and that's the sweet spot...

FoxShutter: Any modern medium format camera blows this Sony out for stills. The colours are still dull and unattractive like in the previous generations.

Exactly! Just like any modern Ferrari out here blows out any minivan! I mean, It's not even a competition? Lmao! If you are comparing between those two you really need neither one of them....

jimmy.walsh: My gear that got away was my Nikon D700. I sold it because I thought I needed more resolution (I was wrong).

I made the exact same mistake, sold it to get a D800 and I regretted it for years and to be honest I might still get one if I find the “right one” as surprisingly the image quality still holds up. The FM, D700 and D850 are arguably the 3 best body’s Nikon ever designed

Rob Sims: Sony RX1... I thought there was no point keeping after I picked up an A7, and then later an A7Rm2... but for some reason I just kept missing it despite going through lots of different lens combinations with the e-mount system.

After 6 years... I finally bit the bullet and picked up a used copy again (this time the updated m2). Sigh. Should never have sold it in the first place! Would have saved me half a decade of GAS!

I know what you mean, there is something about the rendering of that lens, it’s such a shame Sony never seemed to care much about the RX1 line as it doesn’t need much more,

racin06: More commitment to Kaizen from Fujifilm. Nobody does it like Fujifilm.

@ Coomer
Exactly! Just like Sony that releases complete products that NEVER need firmware updates because they are so perfect from day one right? Lmao!!!! C’mon dude really? At least fuji gives you “extra features ” most of the time unlike everyone else.
Disclosure: I’ve been a mirrorless user since the Sony NX-7/ Fuji X100

cxsparc: Certainly an interesting camera. It is larger than the A7M3 FF camera, about the same weight, but has a minimal grip (why??). Price is also in FF territory, strange that the manufacturers currently only know UP. I remember the introduction of the A6000 which was a better camera for less than the Nex7. Time goes by :-)

I hope that the price of the A6600 is going down soon due to this camera.

That’s the one thing I hate about Sony, I can live with everything else but they are a little too small for most good primes and zooms unless you add a grip or go fully manual Zeiss lenses, I for one welcome anything bigger than Sony’s

Lmao! Inverse Square Law! Distance! Did you just not see the flash become a light bulb? Did you not just see Tatsuo Suzuki working distance? Did you just not see another photographer use the same technique at the same distances? Are you blind??

Again I'm done with this nonsense dude, you can believe whatever you like, if actual visual proof of it

Doesn't do it for you, I'm not actually expecting you to understand the actual physics of it either so I'm not gonna waste my time trying to explain, just like I'm not expecting you to understand this is the oldest trick in the book and has nothing to do with bouncing, nothing at all

SteveAnderson: Hahaha, Great advertising for Fujifilm.

They know full well that this type of photography would shock and horrify the average Japanese person. And enough of the rest of the world interested in this camera as well.

Which means they know full well what they were doing here all along.

And you tough guys that want to punch him out are pathetic. 'Be' strong, dont 'act' like you are. Talking apes. Think more.

@LoSPt1
Is it the most polite way to take a picture? No! Does the end justify the means? That's a personal choice in this case! But that's not the point, the reactions themselves are the body of work, confronting the cultural barriers its the whole point

You live in Japan, right? And whether you were born there or moved in after I'm pretty sure by now you are fully aware of how making eye contact or touching strangers is somewhat culturally frowned upon? This would be "rude' in most western cultures but in Japan, a culture that avoids confrontation, especially in public, is kinda crazy right? Fujifilm is a Japanese company in Japan, I'm pretty sure they are fully aware of the local traditions as well, they had to know it was gonna splash the waters a bit, Daido Moriyama has very, very similar style and process, he was also very criticized for being "rude, impolite, perverted and crass" for decades before finally being culturally accepted and artistically admired & praised so my personal uneducated guess? Fuji knew it was gonna cause a bit of a stir, they just misjudged how quickly ppl would forget that this is nothing new and there's been another artist like this guy before
