In the video when they talk about the MF implementation changes the guy says they have implemented X10 zoom on the command dial and then if you flick it left/right then it changes zoom to x3.

Very nice. Sometimes I do find the X10 zoom too much.

No need for this. According to Fuji pre-launch marketing material you already have the same, FX sensor performance. :D

And if we stay with that thinking, I should buy a horse and wagon and start selling "snake oil for all your ills"
Wishing something doesn't make it so.
Look, the Fujifilm's sensor in the x-pro1 is really great but it aint no full frame, no way, no how, no matter what they say.

I would say that in regards to noise and iso performance that it is.
And shadow DR is better than on my mate's Canon EOS 5D Mark III.

The only noticeable difference is in fact DoF. ISO/noise performance, resolution and DR is pretty much on par with 5D2 and 5D3 files.
Please don't use LR/ACR to compare the files though.

Maybe is comparable to your mate 5D3, but not with my shots taken with Nikon D700 :lol:

C'mon....

+1 if you think the D700 is superior you should see what an image the D4 can produce. I have all 3 cameras and there is no comparison.

We are going off topic a bit...

To return to the topic and the posted video I'm still perplexed what escaped to the Fuji representative at 3:31. He will probably get fired...

A full frame is a 35mm sensor, and the Canon 5D series are the by far most popular full frame cameras on the market.
So a comparison between the 5D2 and 5D3 is probably the most reasonable.

Here is a shadow DR comparison between the 5D2 and X-Pro1 just as an example. And the 5D3 does not have much better DR than 5D2, if any better at all:

Since we are wishing, How about a full frame sensor! Now that I would buy in a heartbeat. Of course that would mean a new body but who cares. Isn't this wishing wednesday?


Lol, if it's anything close to the price of the new Sony they can keep it :-)

I saw that today too, I guess you need to charge a lot of money to look competitive.

I guess you are talking about the NEX6 camera.
This looks like a direct head to head with the X-E1.

If I didnt have a X-Pro1 then I might be interested but it is too late and anyway it still needs to have some user testing but for me the specification look better than the NEX7. I dont want 24MP in a small camera.

The NEX7 looked great but there are a lot of people who got one and didnt like it (I guess must the same as X-Pro1).
I dont understand people buying cameras purely on specifications or name. I have used Nikon cameras for nearly 40 years and whilst I have a Fuji S2 Pro I got that for my underwater photography and essentially it is a Nikon.
The X100 was a sight unseen buy but that was done on the basis of needing a camera that was small enough to be a small carry around camera to replace my D80 that died. X-Pro1 was a considered purchase knowing what I knew about the X100.

Yup that is the one I am referring to...

$2800 + $600 OVF or $450 EVF

I fully disagree with this statement. I shoot professionally with a D800E, Canon5dM2 and a my xpro-1 and the image quality from high to low light matches pixel for pixel in "HOW I SHOOT."

I couldn't be more pleased with this Fuji APS-C sensored camera.
Its not perfect.
Yes the D800 has faster focus, and Canon Mk2 "feels" more reliable, but the Fuji X-Pro1 stands up to my full frame gear nicely.

... in "HOW I SHOOT." ...


A little, but important detail :unsure:

Interestingly others owner of D800E claims that is the best camera in the range and MF owner claims that neither FX or (the silly) APS-C could not match MF IQ.

Go figure...
