Fuji X10
« on: August 31, 2011, 05:04:32 PM »
Okay, it hasn't been released yet, but I'm getting kind of excited about the new Fuji X10.

On paper it looks a lot like what I'd like to see in a Canon G13. Thoughts?

Seems a nice enough product, I'll await the reviews before I comment, suggested price from some fuji forum is £470 in the UK, which is currently $763, which would suggest a US retail of about $500-550 ?

Not really followed the high end compact market much but a 28-113 lens with F/2-2.8 and manual zoom seems like a significant upgrade on what we've seen before.

Can't say I know much about compact either sensors, this ones a bit larger than the Canon G series and Panasonic isnt it?

Add those two together and might this be one of the first compact zooms with useble narrow DOF, I.E. not having to get ultra close.

I will not be surprised if Fujifilm X10 is the coming best(seller) compact 2011. Fujifilm is more bold than Canon and Nikon, maybe because Fujifilm doesn´t have any DSLR´s and their lenses to defend.

Well, it's great to have a retro-look, high-end compact in the market. As an owner of the x100, I envy the x10 for its zoom, but other than that, I'd prefer to keep my hybrid viewfinder  :P

Again, I'm waiting to see how good the x10's view finder is when compared to the G12's...

However, if I remember from rumors earlier, there should be another Fuji camera to be released this year... maybe a m43 body with an optical viewfinder. That would be nice...

The X10 has finally popped up in my Dutch pricewatch for EUR 599 (about USD 827).
Redcoon offers it for EUR 516 (USD 712), I've sent them a mail asking for delivery dates.
Adorama lists it for USD 600 and initial delivery "start of November" so hopefully we get them soon.

If I like the camera I might also get an X100.
Does anybody know the difference between EU and non-EU models?

Kai's had his review up for almost a week.

and of course the Camera Store reviewed a pre-production model last month
Small | Large




judging by the published timeline Fuji's set to release a mirrorless body set above the X10 sometime early next year. as such it's likely at least APS-C. The only other camera set to be released is the small sensor, mirrorless superzoom X-Si which is styled like a traditional DSLR body without an interchangeable lens.

I think the Olympus xz-1 looks like a better camera vs the x10 (as long as you shoot raw which I always do anyways) -
1. Exact same zoom range
2. xz-1 has slightly better lens specs (f2.5 at the long end of the zoom vs f2.8)
3. xz-1's lens is already review to be very sharp, and much sharper than the competition (including the lx5) in the corners
4. the x10's retail price is $100 more than the xz-1's

Except they forgot to give it a viewfinder. That's a non-starter for me.

You're certainly welcome to your own opinion and requirements - for sure.

For completeness, I would just point out that -
1. You can buy an EVF for the xz-1
2. As I understand it, the x10's optical viewfinder is like most compact cameras viewfinders - 85% coverage so not 100% coverage, parallax errors (center is not center) as you zoom, doesn't look through the lens (unlike a dslr), no shooting info displayed in it like on a dslr so you still need the back screen for manual settings, etc etc.
