FUJIFILM'S latest, X-T1 ?
« on: January 20, 2014, 04:20:38 AM »
Well, hardly a rumor any more.
January 28th official announcement.
Looks like they're plastering the deck with manual controls a-plenty.
I sure hope it fits and feels better in hand than Nikon's Df.
If so, it's looking like the next Fuji in my collection and likely to displace a few more DSLR bodies for regular use.
A little popup flash would be convenient but can't always have it all.
The one on the xa1 and xm1 works nice as you can tilt it back and use for bounce.

I think it is very ugly , I much prefer the XE2.
I am not a fan of  fake SLR look of the OM-D , the A7R and this one although I have the A7R and the A7.
So unless it gets some sort of Organic sensor and tilt-able screen , I am keeping my A7R and XE2 and sell my A7.

Well, there's plenty more unofficial images showing all sides of it now.

I don't mind the look of it, just wondering how I'm gonna hold it.
It looks smaller than the Xe2.
I do like all the physical controls; menu diving will hardly be required.
looks like a flip-screen too, and PC port,
lock buttons for ISO and shutter speed dials
control rings for drive mode and metering below those
display mode button returns from xe1
looks like dual SD slots
and the tripod mount is still not on the lens axis, but may be using the optional grip.

I actually prefer the fit and feel of the OMD EM1 more than anything else lately.
I don't mind the xe2 but it's a little box-ish, even if it's still pretty easy to hold onto.
I've been looking at the Sony A7r but haven't considered it just yet.  I like the idea of it for sure...  basic imaging back. But for now, most of my glass fits Nikon and D800/e is good enough and I like the handling of it too.
I prefer an SLR type body with a deep grip so I can comfortably carry it without a strap always getting in the way.

Including the lens in has 6 dials! I may not even be able to figure out what I would want to use six dials for.

Hopefully they start adding a joystick like Canon does too, I actually really like those for AF point selection.

If they would just make a full frame camera I'd get one for sure, as is I'm waiting for the X-E2 to drop in price.

Hey, Nikon, look ... both the shutter and the ISO dials have "A" points.

Seriously, this camera might be my point of exit regarding Canon ... all the X system still needs is a weather-sealed, internal focusing 50-200mm f/4 lens (OIS optional).

I assume you know Fuji have a lens roadmap listing lenses to be released over the next year?  No 50-200 f/4, but I'd assume the 50-140 f/2.8 and the "Super Tele Zoom" will be weather-sealed.

FWIW, I'm a Fuji user (I've an older X-E1).  If the available focal lengths fit your needs, and you're not an action, wildlife or sports photographer, it is a very nice system to get into.

Those "roadmaps" are really nice, aren't they? Wish Canon would do something of the same.

For ALL my sub-100mm work the Fujifilm system will be perfect. For the tele-photo stuff, Canon still rules the roost ... but I don't think for long. Both Fujifilm and micro-4/3 are slowly building a stable of quality lenses, with just the 150~300mm focal length not well represented.

I think it looks great, almost clean at ISO 800, no matter how manipulated it was.
Even ISO 6400 is pretty acceptable.

If it actually focuses on moving subjects it will steal a lot of DSLR sales. I LOVE my X-E1 and the Fuji lenses, but if I am heading into a situation with moving or otherwise difficult subjects, I grab the Canon every time.

What have they got over 300mm then?

It's kinda funny as far as Canon & Nikon's digital imaging systems have evolved, people are excited to go back to the beginning and buy into a new APS-C system with an 18-55 kit lens.

It's a pretty decent kit lens.

Fuji Canada site has a deal listed; pre-order now with any of their suppliers and get a FREE VERTICAL BATTERY GRIP.

jeez, if I didn't just get a $3k bill from my accountant AND my insurance renewal I'd be all over that!
if I only have to deposit 10-20% to place an order, I just might

Nothing and that's my point. If both Fujifilm and the micro-4/3 chaps start making primes of 300mm and longer, then Canon is going to lose their trump card.

However, both of the new cameras from Fujifilm and Olympus, as well as from Sony, support manual focus lenses; and I personally can MF faster and more accurately than the cameras I own can AF. So the lack of lenses is not that big of an issue.

The "digital imaging systems" of neither Canon or Nikon have evolved beyond it being basically a film camera with an integrated digital back.
