    Kit, If the 5N does not work for you, while in Italy, drop me a line.

    Well, it was a joke really, but I have decided to keep my NEX lenses until I've given the OMD a real bash.

    So much to wake up to!

    )

    The problem is that my 5N and Hawks adapter did not arrive in time for this trip (I was REALLY hoping). I am using the GXR here, with the CV 35/3.5 (which is sharp wide open); very nice focal length for me. So, in the meantime, I am gathering ALL INFO!

    Cheers to all, KL

    A fun video review, I dunno if anyone else follows his reviews, somewhat childish, but entertaining to watch all the same!

    Yes, quite fun... makes me want a souped up X100 with the new sensor and ultra fast CDAF - lower cost of entry, specialised and optimum lens for walkaround/streetshooting, unique hybrid viewfinder.

    I really think Fuji should concentrate on perfecting the X100 with latest electronics and more firmware development.

    Cheers

    I completely agree, I think the fixed fast lens is superb! However, personally I am a 50mm sort of guy on full frame. I would be more excited if Fuji can get the X100 replacement out sooner rather than later and with a lot of improvement in AF speeds and usual rants fixed. I also think it looks beautiful as is. Size is wonderful and leaf shutter, with flash sync speeds that are out of this world. It is crazy good on paper, just fails in my hands

    If they can dramatically improve the X100, I would pay the asking price of the X Pro 1 for one. From what I've seen so far the X Pro 1 would also fail in my hands (my phrasing is intentional )

    That is a statement. It remains to be seen if it is true.

    I wonder why they did not include the Ricoh GXR A12 M module in their comparisons.

    Thanks, Cam. But, no.

    I have a superior camera in my hacked GH-2 to do real infrared photography with better DR, IQ, MP count, pretty much everything. Besides, it is a real live view camera and I can actually see in infrared and even in ultraviolet.

    The M8/M9 and such would fail miserably.

    i was talking to Kit, sweetness. i know you and the M8 would never get on

    (the guy who's selling the M8, btw, has decided to stick with the X100 after borrowing mine for a few days... there's something very freeing about a fixed lens camera!)

    Re: new Fuji X Pro1 camera (formerly called "new camera")

    Would be great in all respects, if 35mm was your preferred focal length. Unfortunately, for me I like a bit longer of a lens. Even 40mm suits me better but I think the 50mm equivalent will live in the x-pro1

    Cam, Quite right.

    I have used the process of elimination to not to consider mechanical RF cameras. SLRs are almost gone as well...

    I missed that!

    Great post, Cam!

    Jono agrees with it! I thought there was something terribly wrong when he claimed that he could not see anything through the NEX-7 EVF while the dim M9 was all peachy.

    Ahh Vivek - but that was in exactly opposite circumstances - on top of a mountain at over 3000 metres with bright sunshine.

    Thanks, Robert. I will wait for some more time to see what he comes up with. Thus far, it is touristy stuff. That is not without its bonuses.

    That cab shot shot would not have been possible for anyone other than an obvious tourist!

    Unfortunate title to Zack's last piece... if you glance at it, it reads something very harsh and which I certainly disagree with!

    I love the photography though, especially the character in specs - somewhere in this thread I think, someone asked for examples with 'pop' - I think I found one!

    Cheers

    The harsh contrasty sunlit sample? Those are easy to produce with any and every camera/lens combo. Even the worst of the worst lenses tend to produce very decent images under such light. I could not understand the quest for such.

    Ah, that one.

    Brian, FWIW, that is perhaps the most photographed face from Mumbai.

    I think this camera just needs to get widely released already.

    Hey, I am with you. I was chastised for thinking the image was important. Now I am chastised for thinking it is not. (I could not find the sarcasm smilely.)

    I'm not sure what can be gleaned from reduced resolution web images. As Vivek stated, the India pics could have been taken with any number of cameras. I also made this comment earlier in the thread...lots of cameras can make similar images.

    The question really is, would one rather carry a big DSLR with big fat lenses, or a much smaller lighter kit that gives equivalent or better performance; i.e., IQ.

    indeed

    Nono - that won't do
    If you mean Image Quality (which I assume you do) then you should say that. Performance implies all sorts of things (like AF speed etc. etc.)

    Well, great. I don't know what processing that CV 15/4.5 had on the X-Pro1, but the image looks good. As well, I have no idea how the image from the NEX 5N looks so poor—I have seen truly excellent images with that combination (but again, do not know what processing was used).

    The same lens on the GXR is a personal fave, and that's without any in-camera tweaks.

    Re: new Fuji X Pro1 camera

    The 15 on the X-Pro1 is not particularly sharp at the corners, but the lack of color shift is interesting.

    I wholeheartedly agree. There is entirely too little official response from Fuji on when this camera will arrive. Aside from one voice at one store (Robert @ Precision Camera) there is precious little information on when this camera might arrive (in the States). Where is Kayce Baker and the Fuji Marketing Dept? How about a launch date? There was much fan-fair and applause at CES, and then... nothing.

    I expect to get an update from the regional Fuji rep today, or tomorrow. Thanks for the comment, BTW. No longer at Precision though.

    Just as I was debating between a Nex 5n and a Nex 7, this comes along.

    @ Vivek:
    That was a 7 not 5N!
    That explains it! Thanks Vivek.

    The difference is that as a working pro photographer, this was his camera of choice for the trip to India and Dubai and doubtless he will be paid good money for some of his images.

    Of course that doesn't mean that we are seeing his best images that might be reserved for paying clients!
