  • Indeed, it’s a bit of everything. I’ll just send the link to this article to my “dslr” friends who start to get bored or tired of a heavy dslr. Maybe they’ll reconsider their options. :)

  • Mr_Electability

    The author of the German “Fuji v. Sony” weblog lives in an amazingly different universe than I: he claims that no one could tell him why the 16MP XT-1’s RAW files are the same size as the 36MP a7’s (both at roughly 36MB). Knowledgeable Sony users have been whining for some time about lossy compression in RAW, and the artifacts it introduces.

    http://community.sony.com/t5/Alpha-NEX-Cameras/RAW-compression-is-too-lossy/td-p/278035

    http://www.fredmiranda.com/forum/topic/1267511/2

    http://community.sony.com/t5/Join-the-Inspiration/Add-option-for-lossless-uncompressed-RAW-files-for-A7r/idi-p/292930

    • MJr

      I convert my Fuji files to DNG on import in LR, size is about half. That is using the standard lossless compression (no choice). Works brilliantly, and no more ‘damaging’ than putting files into a zip archive in case somebody was wondering.

      (Also doesn’t change anything about the demosaicing as the actual sensor data remains unchanged. But indeed DO NOT use the lossy compression. That means the raw data will be demosaic’d into images and there’s no way to go back. Totally defeats the purpose.)

      • Mr_Electability

        I don’t doubt that bit-packing can less to smaller RAW files, though I’m curious how Adobe manages that, since 36MB for a 16MP sensor suggests 2 bytes per pixel, which is not unreasonable. (I work primarily w/the X10, which has 12 bits per pixel, & I know the X20 uses 14. Maybe Fuji just decided to use 2 bytes to make the progression to upcoming technology easier, but I don’t know.) I just found it amazing that the weblog’s author claimed “no one” could tell him the reason the Sony files are so small.

        Edit: Oh, I think I know: DNG may well use a Lempel-Ziv style compression at the bit level, or something similar. OK, that’s not such a surprise, after all.

        Also in edit: I would emphasize that Sony’s users are whining because Sony only allows 8-bit, lossy compression, which strikes me as colossally stupid. Nothing you wrote suggests you don’t understand that, but I wanted to be sure. :-) After all, if I wanted to work with 8-bit data, I’d just shoot JPGs.

        • Thank you guys, that explains a lot about Sony trolls here. Buyers remorse is a bitch.

          And speaking of why Fuji RAF files are so huge… Serious compression requires serious processing power, which in turn generates a lot of heat (try shooting 10 fps on Nikon’s D3S with nef compression enabled, and you’ll realize that you are holding a magnesium alloy heatsink) and eats the battery. Storage, on the other hand, is cheap and compact.

          • Vlad

            Frankly, the compression is entirely a non-issue. I’d take the smaller files any day.

          • I’d certainly love to have a choice.

          • Mr_Electability

            A lot of Sony users disagree, & the worst part of it is that there isn’t a lossless option. See the links I provided above.

          • Vlad

            Sony user here. I saw the links, a few people have been whining for quite some time. Obviously, having the choice would be optimal, but the problem is really minor.

  • Fujiguys

    nice review here

    http://bjornmoerman.blogspot.ae/2015/01/first-look-at-fujifilm-xf-16-55-f-28-r.html

    conclusion
    ” I must admit that I’m rather disappointed that the lens does not have OIS. This is exactly why I’m still undecided whether I’ll buy the lens after I return it to Fujifilm”

    ..I will not buy it too! same +/- quality of cheap 18-55 (with ois!)

  • Rediscover Film

    There doesn’t seem to be much info on the MCEX-11. I received mine from Amazon yesterday and posted a video with some thoughts and sample images taken with the 18mm, 27mm, 35mm, and 55-200mm.

    Here is the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0DPkSYE07q8

    Cheers!

  • DM

    The guy at soundimageplus writes a very one-sided article and does not let anyone comment because of what he calls “fanboyism”! Rather, his arguments for the Sony A7 miss out a lot of the camera’s problems, but he chooses not to mention those…

    He basically says Fuji updates are just marketing strategy, which he is right about, but it’s something Fuji users like and now Nikon has taken a leaf out of Fuji’s book. So there.

    • GAN

      Interesting comment. I just figured Sony must have given him a free camera and Fuji didn’t. Oh well, hope the door doesn’t hit him on the way out.

    • Fujiguys

      I agree Fuji updates are just makerting strategy. X-Trans sensor is 3-4 years old. I hope to see IBIS in the next model..and not more Megapixel on old sensor
