ttran88: No X trans 24mp, Why didn't they put this sensor in the new XT2?

Nope. Every other raw converter does just fine....thus...it's an Adobe problem. And when I compared resolution between the two sensor types, the XTrans comes out ahead. It is a superior design only hampered by the Adobe product.

I have no problem with Xtrans whatsoever. I have an Adobe problem....but not an Xtrans problem. In C1, Raw Therapee, Iridient, and other software, demosaicing is just fine. I find people complaining about XTrans are simply being stubborn in their support of Adobe. It's the same with film...if your favorite developer is D76....dont blame Kodak that their Ektar 100 is coming out b&w....change your developer.

And you have proof otherwise. Of course...Fuji puts the highest quality sensors in the cheapest cameras. Are you clueless?

Let me guess...you used Lightroom. I used C1, Raw Therapee and Iridient and found more detail with Xtrans.

Not debatable at all. I've compared...and Fuji says it's better. Detail is better.

This may replace my 23 f1.4 for street work

Because the xtrans is better

Martin JC: loved my epic -- why did I sell it....

@NikCanFuji - Of course...anyone thay doesn't use digital is silly. All these poor souls painting, sketching...printing to silver paper, platinum/paladium....all are simply silly. Why use a violin...I'm sure you'll find a synthesizer equally as rewarding. Ridiculous.

ScarletKnight: I can't fault Dan for his love of clamshell cameras which I'm guessing might be attributable to his New Jersey roots and time spent down the "Shore" eating too many clams. (I'm an ex-New Jerseyan who owned both of these cameras so I can relate.)

My choice for a digital reincarnation? A Rollei 35. It's small, exudes German-precision with a blocky metal body, has dials galore, a collapsible lens, and a surprisingly large and bright viewfinder. Skip the scale-focusing and the bottom-mounted hotshoe, though--not everything about the camera designs of yesteryear should be replicated.

I still ise my Rollei 35 with Portra 160 film for the most part. Tiny. Razor sharp lens.

Alex Efimoff: And what is so special about these shots?

Wow. Someone writes a helpful article....and there is always another person to come up with a snide putdown thinking he is really clever. Do you feel all big and superior now?

halfwaythere: If you like to shoot wide angled lenses the choice is pretty obvious.

My bad...there is a Tokina 11-16....I mistyped. Not that you care as you are obviously on a crusade and anything that indicates you are wrong will be brushed aside regardless. And yes,mthe Canon 17-40 is optically weak...I used to own one and it was soft near edges regardless of f stop selection.

Yake: I seem to recall some complaints about Canon sensors lacking dynamic range, now that the new way of photography is doing 5-stop underexposures to hold the highlights and so forth. I guess Getty is not doing that. ;)

Nah...Canon users have made it very clear DR isnt important....oh wait...they also said resolution wasn't important either. Hmmm....I guess nothing is important to them.

Reportage shooting is not known for stressing dynamic range of any camera. More important is AF, speed, build, etc. Exposing correctly to record the scene isn't a new way....and if you think correct exposure is "underexposing"...you dont understand metering.

The Sigma 8-16 and Tokina 11-18 and Fuji 10-24 are not mediocre lenses. I am asking you again, what wide primes are you using for your FF? I used to own the 14-24 Nikon and it worked beautifully on my D2X as well as my D700. I've also tested the Sigma 8-16 and it was very sharp and well corrected on my 7D. It sounds like you are on more of a crusade by trying to find excuses.

You said if you shoot wide...I pointed out a wide lens. That isn't an opinion....it is a fact. What are you photographing exactly that needs wider than an 8 on aps-c....or a 10 even? I find my 10-24 for Fuji X to be suprb in sharpness and correction. What wide primes do you have for Canon or Nikon for your FF?

Really...I didn't realize you'd tried them all. I find a lot of good wide primes work beautifully on aps-c. I also find that there is often little use for these wide lenses for landscape or architectural work.

Hmmm...the Sigma 8 is pretty wide....equivalent to 12 on FF. How wide exactly do you need to go?
