Anyone excited about this?
How about the price?
There are so many threads about this already . . .
I'm always hesitant of anything that has "pro" in it's name. Just feels kinda sketchy to me.
$1700 for body, $600 per lens, APS-C sensor. I don't think for me.
indeed. $2,300+ to start with.
and i think the size is big that kinda defeats the advantage of mirrorless. it's almost same size as a Leica M9!
Maybe we should just re-name this forum the "Fuji Mirrorless Forum."
I'm very excited about this camera. It ticks all the right boxes for me.
I'm curious why people are so excited about this yet very so so about the NEX-7.
1 word: lenses.
Actually, the nice retro design is part of it too. But the salient difference is the lenses. Nex has at best 1 decent lens that is both fast and sort of compact. Fuji has 3.
Sony has quite weak lenses to start with and many people are not comfortable with the body shape of NEx series . This camera looks awesome but its way expensive . Moreover once u have spent that much money then u won't have the luxury of changing bodies every 6 months as we do with MFT . It looks , good and promising but lets see how it performs the real world.SOny Nex 7 is a failed product, I will chose NEX5n any day over Nex7.
Because the Fuji has enormous aesthetic and retro appeal, drawing deeply on a style that sends us old film users into raptures of nostalgia. It looks like how cameras used to be and still should.
In comparison the Sony looks like something used for getting stones out of horses hooves. We might learn to love what it does, but never how it looks!
Also, to turn serious for a moment, the Fuji lens range looks set to really compliment the camera in a way that the Sony lenses don't for the NEX.
I wouldn't go that far!
I'll be excited when I don't have to keep moving these threads into the Other Systems forum where they belong.
I was about to get it until I saw the prices. Look wise for me is perfect. I don't mind the size as I carry a bag with me always. The function seems alright. There is no info at all on the AF speed.
I hope this sends a message to Pana/Oly to have another line with similar designs.
Well, I actually think that the NEX-7 is a great camera (and it's looking great, too!). But I don't like the lack of native compact AF primes. The X-Pro 1 seems to be as good as the NEX-7, but with the whole range of fast AF primes available at the launch. What's not to like?
The initial appeal of MFT was that it offered a radicaly different digital camera concept. Why should we now want Olympus and Panasonic to start copying the mirrorless systems of other manufacturers? Surely if Fuji (or any other manufacturer) make what you want, that's what you buy. It's great to have so much choice. :smile:
But the X-Pro1 as a whole is significantly larger than the NEX-7 is. So even if it has a more compact lens, the package is as big if not bigger. As for body, we'll have to wait until the X-Pro is released and reviews, but it would have to knock it out of the park to best the NEX-7 which has been widely embraced and praised by the reviewers. It's also darn right cheap compared to the X-Pro.
You hit the nail on the head for sure..
