After months of backorder, look what came in the mail today :D

Can't wait to compare this to my 5D Mark III and L primes. Unfortunately the battery is still charging so I haven't been able to take any shots yet.

Canon 85mm 1.2L vs. Fujinon 56mm (85 effective) 1.2 vs. Fujinon 23mm 1.4 (35 effective) vs. Canon 35mm 1.4L

Let's see if this can replace my 5DIII as my everyday and light travel camera.

Very cool looking camera. Fujinon are excellent lenses, I bet that they will compare favorably. Can't wait to see some of your shots.

Is that really much difference in size and heft from a 5D? I consider my 5 a big jump from my 1D series in ease of use.

Agreed. No reason you couldn't just buy the G1 X mark II or the SL1 with the 17-55 f/2.8 IS.

Yes there is a HUGE difference. These are not my photos, but he did a good job comparing the sizes from all angles. It is a professional mirror-less camera that is weather sealed. Not looking at this as a backup body or replacement to my 5D. Just a pick up and go, light weight system, alternate for when I still want creativity without having to cary LBS of gear with me. I enjoy my primes and the fujinon lenses (23, 35, and 56) together, with the camera, weigh less than my 85 1.2.

Hmm. You'd rather have a point and shoot or a shrunken rebel? The SL1 is no different once I throw on my L lenses. In addition, neither will look as cool and as easy to use. The manual dials totally make sense.

No need for a full charge. The battery memory problem doesn't apply the your type of battery.

Anyway it's more than 10 hours now, it should be fully charge ;)

That is one attractive camera! I never saw one before, so I looked at its DP review. It is equally impressively spec'd. Sometimes I consider things smaller than a gripped 60D. Looking forward to your review.

Yes, it's a massive difference. Even my 6D with a Yashica ML 50/1.4 is over twice the heft of my X-E1 with 35/1.4 on it. When you're going out and about with friends and still trying to do non-photography related things all day it's nice to have such a significantly smaller camera system with you.

Not even close to the same thing. The X-T1 could easily replace a 5D system for most uses.

I look forward to your review OP, wish I could afford to replace my X-E1 with the T1... not quite ready to give up my 6D's high ISO capability... definitely have considered it though.

Ok folks. Here are sample shots from the X-T1 compared to my 5D MK III. Have been really busy that I didn't have time to do a proper test (tripod or manual mode to set shutter speed). Both cameras were set to f1.2, 400 ISO, and did some manual exposure compensation to get the shutter speed roughly the same. I'll do a better one once I have more time, but these pics should give you a general idea of its capabilities. I believe that it was set to the Velvia color mode. The camera has 4 different color modes to reflect different types of fuji films. These were straight out of the camera, no enhancement to vibrancy or saturation.

Fujifilm X-T1 vs. Canon 5D Mark III

The lenses - Canon's 85mm 1.2L II vs. Fujinon 56mm 1.2 (85mm equivalent APS-C).

IMAGE: https://farm6.staticflickr.com/5517/14199977071_4cb0f439d4_c.jpg

Random sample pics (X-T1) from my walk-around in the city today:

56mm 1.2 all taken wide open:

IMAGE: https://farm3.staticflickr.com/2927/14033378310_ca42ffaf2f_c.jpg

23mm 1.4 (35mm equivalent) @ 1.4 and 5.6 respectively.

These photos are super SHARP and I'm really happy with the quality of the glass and the sensor's color reproduction. I am so happy with the quality of these photos that the X-T1 will probably be my grab and go set. The only downside is tracking moving objects... perhaps I haven't figured it out yet, but even with 8fps, I had a hard time taking moving objects in focus. Not that big of an issue, because I'm not a sports photographer and for those occasions that I do, I have my 5DIII.

Next post will compare the two lense in a semi-controlled environment.
