I said yesss.... my wife said NO.

cheaper to buy the camera then the wife.

What. You are thinking of buying a non-Canon camera??? I am baffled and speechless.

Hey... psst special for you i started a poll in a big facebookgroup for model and portraitphotographers the question was... what camera do you use? 265 said... a canon, 195 said... a nikon, annnnnnd 65 said.... a sony..... you little liar.

"Dual SD slots"

yes! im selling my z cameras. someone understands backup

If I buy this camera will I need to buy another camera at all in the next ten years? If the answer is no, sign me me up.

What more could you want? Maybe something light and compact, but Fuji has you covered there as well.

Fuji is crushing it. They seem to go with the strategy that they don't need a gradient of product offerings. Offering solutions more defined categories of cameras and then different models in those categories makes choosing which camera I wan't less of a hassle.

Yep, big fan!

You might as well add on the price for a new computer or upgrade as I can just imagine trying to process those HUGE files.

Nice camera though.

Just read another review. Uncompressed RAW files come in at 250MB and JPEG are around 70MB. Wow!

At last a camera that justifies me having 256Gb RAM :D

210% faster autofocus??? If something takes 2 seconds, then 50% faster takes 1 second, 100% faster takes zero time, 210% must mean it happens before you've even thought about doing it! :-)

Not quite;
In your example 2 seconds would be 100% as this is the comparison point.
200% would be 1 second.
And 210% would = 0.9 seconds. It’s strangely worded but when you look at it relatively it makes sense! :)

They use Inception logic to make it happen. Or unhappen.

There is a build-in time machine.

Lee Christiansen's picture

Ha... Can I have 300% faster? Then it would focus before I've turned up to the gig...

Absence of low pass filter should produce high quality images. Just not for everyone's work possibly, but at that price any one who purchases this camera should understand that.

Fuji needs to realize that we’d need 24fps on this.

Julien Jarry's picture

This is the first medium format sensor to put out 4k yes?

Rob Davis's picture

What is that going to do for rolling shutter I wonder? That’s a lot of area to cover.

Errick Jackson's picture

Check the test footage Cinema5D put out. It looks gorgeous.

Rob Davis's picture

It looks okay. I’d like to see some panning shots.

Hasselblad H6D has 4k

Rob Mitchell's picture

Styling dept. was bypassed on this one.

Spy Black's picture

Yes, substance dept. had it all to themselves...

Jay Jay's picture

Impressive. But design-wise, where Hasselblads/Phase One's look like Ferrari's, this thing looks like one big dump truck.

Alexander Yakimov's picture

oh boi, lock, ​and load!

revo nevo's picture

Yeah hasselblad has some nice looking cameras but phase one ? It looks like a cube with a lens

Michael Holst's picture

I agree with you on PhaseOne. Those are pretty but I think Hasselblads are hideous. But I'm a huge fan of how Fuji designs their cameras so I'll admit bias.
