vesa1tahti: At low ISOs, the same IQ as with today's compact zoom cameras.

So I guess you no longer need to "beg to differ."

1+1=2 is an absolute. Find me one measurement of resolution, noise, dynamic range, color depth, color accuracy, etc, where say the latest Sony 20mp compact is beaten by the 4mp sensor of the Olympus. Like I said....absolutely none.

Nonsense. Todays compacts of 20mp at low iso offer far better resolution, lower noise, much superior dynamic range and color depth. There is absolutely nothing that the ancient 4mp sensor does better. Nothing. There is no struggle at all.

barrym1966: aww cute, now the hipster mirrorless people have something to play with :)

Seems some wannabees have a chip on their shoulder for those using mirrorless.

barrym1966: cool nikon are catching up with Tamron , except on pricing :)

Look like a superb, high quality optic for those demanding the best. I still prefer primes...but for some, zooms are handy

Ned-B: You might want to correct your information about the Second Prize winner. Joni Sternback's last name is spelled Sternbach and she's a woman. Her Instagram user name is @jstersurf if you want to check out her wonderful tintype photos of the surf community. Cheers!

I have the book of those images. Wonderful work.

barrym1966: wow you managed to shoot an outdoor wedding! now go ahead and do another video in a very dimly lit church that wont allow you to use flash and see how the camera does

An iphone can photograph outdoor weddings just as well

Brides everywhere are rushing out to be a part of this. LOL. Not buying it...but a 'B' for effort in faking it til you make it

Interesting Barry....you shoot 30 or 40 weddings a year....but 10 months ago you had your first wedding gig....asking about lenses, etc. What you really are is webexpert...just as I said.

racin06: Mirrorless cameras are good enough to shoot weddings?

Exactly Androole. In fact, when I am using 6400 on my X-Pro 1, and Porta 800 in my Nikon F5 at weddings, the Fuji has less noise. I think Barry is just trolling

I just a photographer by their work...not their claims. The mediocre work in your gallery proves the point. A camera for wedding work is far more than just high ISO. After decades of being a photographer, I know it well.

The Fujis work great for image quality at high iso. I have no problems with ISO 6400 at f1.4. Great for prints in album or book.

Well...checking his gallery of his lighting skills...he definitely is a troll.

elefteriadis alexandros: One of the most important aspects in Wedding and professional photography is the perspective and depth of field control, and for a serious photographer anything smaller than medium format is not acceptable for that reason. Smaller formats is only for sports and speed situations.
Of Course young people they don't understand that because they didn't have the opportunity to compare small format with big one.

I know...I've used MF film in 6x7 for weddings for decades...then I used MF digital as well.

Hate to break this to you...but fastnlenses on FF bodies have hetter DOF control than MF. You are misinformed.

Another web expert who knows nothing about wedding photography. Go use your iphone then and show us who it's done. I've used my Fuji gear in low light without issue.

Mateus1: Is there anybody here who buy M1mkII for landscape and is paying $2000 for body? Do you use 3:2 ratio for landscape too with this tiny 4/3 sensor? K1 that is not much bigger is FF 36MP and costs $1800 only!!!! Do you buy M1mkII for sports? Why, when you have best of the best D500 for same or lover price? Or even more cheaper X-T2, A6500? What is the reason to pay this mad $2000 Oly's price for M1mkII with smalish 4/3 sensor? Street shooting? The body is not smaller then APS-C and FF. Oly Pro lenses are also big and expensive. Any 4/3 cam over $1300 is overpriced in my view.

Nothing at all wrong with XTrans for landscape. Just stop using Lightroom and you'll be fine
