It is crazy that there is still confusion as to the sensor size and format. Of course it will be a Micro Four-Thirds. That is what the sensor format is on the Panasonic Lumix LX100 and Panasonic will not mess with that.

The big issue is whether the LX200, in contrast to the LX100, will ever use the full-size of the sensor.

Interesting that they have brought forward the announcement date. They probably don’t want the Pentax K-70 full disclosure on July 15, 2016 to steal too much thunder given that both cameras will be in the same price range.

Fuji X Manual Focus Firmware Update June 9 — Needs More Work.

by Anura Guruge


As I posted June 13, I successfully installed Fuji’s June 9th firmware updates on my X-E2s and all three of my lenses. But I not currently convinced that it really has done much! I use manual focus quite a bit — I would guess more so than most. I use it with peaking (in this case set to ‘high red‘). I spend a lot of time tweaking the focus, using Manual Focus Zoom, and the Electronic View Finder (EVF). I am no stranger to focus peaking. Have been using it for nearly 2 years, on Sonys and Panasonics

Yes, of course, I get some spectacular results that even amaze me! No question. But I also get more disappointments than I think is warranted. Yes, again. I don’t expect every picture to be good BUT given the effort I put into MY manual focus I would have thought that my success rate would be higher. Yes, it could be me and my bad eyes. I know that. But I am using focus peaking and twiddle the focus until I get the most amount of peaking. At that point I expect the focus point to be in focus. But I find that it is not.

See picture below. I took it yesterday. I focused on the 3 flowers on the foreground using peaking. Probably spent a minute making sure that peaking said that the flowers were in focus. Then I get this. Notice that leaf behind is focused to the point that you can see the hairs. But I focus peaked on the flowers.

I am NOT convinced about Fuji focus!

I am renting a Fuji X-T1, from Lumoid, for a week — soon. (Order placed and confirmed.)

It is this concern about focus — which is paramount for me — that is making me curious about the Pentax K-70.
