dpreview hands on preview – extended version


dpreview just posted his hands on preview-update of the X-E1. They’ve added seven pages to the preview made in Sep., including studio test shots and a sample gallery. “We’ve had our hands on a production X-E1 for a few weeks now, and our first impressions are that Fujifilm’s promises aren’t idle. Autofocus is quicker and more-responsive, and the ‘feel’ of manual focus has certainly been improved. We’re not convinced it can yet match the very best of its mirrorless peers, but Fujifilm has made a step in the right direction, and that has to be applauded.

It’s a comprehensive preview. As you know, there is the interactive dynamic range comparison widget, sample images, image quality comparison and so on… just click you through the preview here at dpreview.

    The focus on the test shots is really poor, look how fuzzy the playing card is right in the centre of the shot.

      Always about that damned card … :) The card is way behind in the scene, if you look at the watch which is in front of the scene, focus is switched around with the NEX-7. So you may be right …

      But it doesn’t matter. We should compare camera’s by their operability and real-world performance. They all do fine in studio comparisons. The only way a 1% quality difference overrules anything is when comparing two of the same bodies with a different sensor, but that rarely every happens does it, and if it does, you have already made your choice.

    Real live photo’s: i agree that should be the best evaluation. Only one reviewer offers a true evaluation. All centers are pretty good. Corrners set the standards. The Fujifilm lenses are the best I have ever seen! Just check this link and you will have all the info you need.
