Hope this is not the wrong forum, if it is, can mods please move it.

Got it the day before with 35mm f1.4 lens and initial reaction is very good looking camera with some weird interface that may need some time getting used to. Some things make you wonder if real photographers shoot these before coming up with design. Lucky I don't have fat fingers. Anyways haven't yet figured out how to change AF points or any other AF setting but quick shots of my kids at f2, AF was so much better than my EOS-M. The 35mm f1.4 does make noise when focussing (reminding me of canon 50mm f1.8) but AF did latch very quickly and all shots (jpegs for now) looked quite nice. Colors, picture quality looks better than my M.

Will keep updated and would add some shots to compare with M as well as my 5dmk3.

Heya,

I would hope it's superior in many ways, since you're comparing a $1200 camera (lens not included, so add more for that) to a $250 camera+lens deal.

Very best,

Fuji's interface does leave me wanting though. It isn't as fast to work with compared to DSLRs. The shutter dial up top means changing shutter speed isn't as quick as a traditional dial. There are some odd choices Fuji made in the controls. It could really use a touchscreen. IQ is not a concern though!

You age yourself with the comment regarding a traditional dial. In the film days, the traditional shutter dial is exactly where Fuji puts them...the latest DSLR with all their electronics is really non traditional. :)

I really like the idea of all the physical controls that the X-T1 has. I find myself leaving my Canon T2i kit at home a lot and either relying on the s100 or just my iphone. Both serve for many things, but sometimes I want a more serious camera. I will probably be upgrading my kit in the very near future and had previously been focused on the 70d. Now, however, I am seriously considering targeting a smaller kit. May get the X-T1 or see what the X-Pro2 will bring.


Photography is just a hobby for me.

It appears to be a great camera. But in terms of mirrorless bodies why would someone choose the X-T1 over a Sony A7 given that there's only a few hundred between them, yet significantly better capabilities.

Well if you're talking about tradition Canon's digital bodies have exactly the same layout as their film bodies, Canon cameras have changed very little in the last 25 years. And nor should they, Canon got an electronic camera interface right the first time.

And dated still ;-)a

I believe the reference was to *film* bodies. None of this thumb dial and back dial stuff :-)

Canon had to change very little in their design for digital, as they had already made their cameras fully electronic. :D
Here is the Canon EOS 1 from 1989, with a modern lens on it. EOS is EOS, regardless of if it's film or digital the experience is similar.
Also there be back dials the aperture wheel is on the film door, the main difference is no rear LCD.

Amen to that. I'd love a XT-1 with a good prime (pushing close to $2000), but compared to the Canon kit at approx' $300 its hard to justify the Fuji.


Tools: I like things with real dials and knobs.

Ah, I see. Yep - EOS design has changed little. I was thinking more of the pre-electronic film cameras. F1, AE-1, etc.

Simple. Lenses. Fuji has a fantastic range of quality lenses, very reasonably priced, built especially for APS-C. Primes & zooms, with more coming. From what I've read, AF on the Sony is really not up to scratch either. Well, compared to the XT1 anyway. Full frame is not the be all & end all -& that's about the only thing Sony seems to have in its favour

Agree. FF is nice and I wanted to get it but lack of lenses and AF along with price was main thing to go with Fuji. I might still move to Sony down the road if they add PDAF in next A7 version.

Now if one is shooting things like landscapes then sony all the way. And you can use canon glass with it.

The 35mm and 55mm Sony are excellent lenses. In fact the 55mm performance is close to the Zeiss Otus at a fraction of the price making it a real bargain. Plus you have access to all of Canon's, Nikon's and Leica's lenses via adaptors.

This is possible, but it's not perfect, far from it, it comes at great cost.
