    Fuji X-H1

    I thought this was worth it's own thread.

    This price level, capability level, seems to be getting crowded. The Panasonic G9, Olympus E-M1ii, new Fuji X-H1 and the Sony A6500 a little cheaper all seem very comparable. All have IBIS, crop sensors, some hybrid video, close to the same size, etc. Also, add in the Nikon D500 from the DSLR field.

    Is this the sweet spot for enthusiast/pro level cameras?

    As for the new Fuji, it makes me interested. At least enough to consider dipping my toes back into the X-system once used copies come down in 3-4 years.

    3-4 years? In that amount of time your fancy will have changed 5 times.

    I still have my original E-M10 3 years later. And it's still more camera than I am photographer.

    IBIS and a tilt screen. It's starting to get tempting... :hide:

    Fortunately it weights a ton and is too big... :biggrin:

    I'm a bit weary of IBIS these days - I've seen vignetting of my m4/3 telephotos with IBIS... Fujifilm have shoehorned IBIS into a mount not designed for it.

    I like Fuji for the retro look and controls. That top panel would knock it any list for me. But then I am not in that market anyway.

    So Fuji rolls out another APSC body with the same tired old sensor...?


    Who's selling all their m4/3's gear to get one...? :biggrin:




    It's not too big though...

    This is the EM1 mkII:

    Dimensions W: 134.1 mm, H: 90.9 mm, D: 68.9 mm (based on CIPA standards: excludes protrusions)
    Weight Approx. 574 g (with BLH-1 battery and Memory card, based on CIPA standards)
    Approx. 498 g (body only)

    Props to Olympus for leading the way and everyone thought they were crazy launching a high price cropped body! Everyone else is now doing it!

    Well... E-M1II is already too big (for me). Why buy a ~700g Fuji when you can get a FF Sony? :D

    Assuming Fuji still hasn't fixed their autofocus issues, I can't see how they pulled off working IBIS.

    Fuji hasn't had the AF problems for at least a generation.

    They've got working PDAF now, the C-AF/TR is better than most m4/3. To top it all off they've got PDAF in even their most basic X-E model now.

    Please don't tell me that. It's the reason I am not a Fuji owner.

    When Fuji released the XE-2S and firmware update for the XE-2, they had fixed most of the issues people had with AF. Since then the XT(1&2 + 10&20) have had fine AF. It took them time to release the XPRO2 with those improvements, but that's been out for a couple years now I think.

    Remind us all again, how is the IQ of that Sony without any lenses attached to it?

    The E-M1 II and A7R3 are pretty much the same size, but body size doesn't mean shit without lenses in front of the camera...

    I have tried so many times to like Fuji but just can’t. I am not a fan (it turns out) of the dedicated dials, I don’t want to change my post processing workflows for xtrans, the af while much better still lags Sony and m43, and I find the colors not what I’m looking for. Also, what I want in terms of body size and controls, is the xa5 with a viewfinder (and no xtrans)

    I am very interested in what Nikon might do, rumored as early as May.

    Honestly, with the dedicated dials, what's the point of the top LCD? You can already see your shutter speed (dial), aperture (ring on lens), and ISO (dial).

    This is not the case with cameras like the G9 or DSLRs that have the feature, where I can see its value. But for a camera with direct dials for those functions, I honestly don't get it...

    Not all the lenses in the Fuji ecosystem have aperture rings, and they can be hard to see at night. Plus, I think they are trying to court the DSLR crowd.

    Those kind of LCDs also use very little power and would have less of an effect on your eyes at night, versus the very bright rear LCD. I can see the reason for it...but Fuji, despite what it could be...just is not what I want. I agree 99% with WT21 and am eager to see what Nikon brings out in their newest mirrorless offerings.

    Good point, I wasn't thinking about night shooting (love the illuminated rear buttons on the D500, such a great feature!).
