Fujifilm X-T1 Announced

B&H Photo has the Fujifilm X-T1 available for pre-order:

Review coverage of the new Fujifilm X body would likely be with the Fujifilm XF 56mm f/1.2. I have requested a review sample, and am likely to add coverage in Guide to Mirrorless.

Good luck on getting sharp images with this latest offering of Fujis. I received one today (thankfully a rental) and struggled with it for hours. Being just shy of legally blind, attaining an accurate focus was nearly impossible using manual focus, and autofocus was very hit or miss (much more the latter). The EVF is not friendly either with a miniscule histogram that was very challenging to make out.

A second issue I had was with color rendition, hyper-blues to be exact. Granted today's brilliant sun and crystal clear winter skies were not a very forgiving environment, still everything looks like I had way overused a polarizing filter.

Lastly, this is not a camera system for those of us with large hands.

DIGLLOYD: I'll give this new gear a fair shake as I do all gear.

Raw conversion matters a lot for color, but so far my Fujifilm X experience has been very positive on color rendition; that is one part of the camera I like a lot. Even within a single raw converter the results can be considerably different depending on which Camera Profile one chooses (e..g. Adobe Standard or Camera Standard or other choice).

As for focus, my last experience with the X-E2 and the Fujifilm 60mm f/2.8 was extremely frustrating with bad focusing damaging many images.

Rigorously lab tested and OWC certified.
