5.0 out of 5 stars Superb Camera, 24 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I already own a. Fuji HS30 which is a great camera which took me a while to suss out the best settings for my eye. When I did I was really happy with the results. This got me thinking that if the Fuji X S1 with it,s bigger sensor could improve on the HS30 then it would be a really great bridge camera! I applied similar settings that I use on the HS 30 and the results for me are astounding. The image quality across the full zoom range is the best from any camera I have owned.I own a Canon 600D with a 18-55 and 55-250 lens and although in all honesty the Canon is much better noise wise the image appeal tone and colour wise goes to the X-S1 for me. I use post image software and this closes the noise gap.Portraits are stunning as is micro.For the guy who can afford the right glass and the inconvience of changing lens and missing shooting opportunities a DSLR can,t be beaten.Having said that the 26X lens with it's super quality is outstanding when compared with like. We've all heard about slow focus in lower light and long zoom in all honesty it's no worse than my present DSLR and lenses. I was going to buy a Sigma 18-250 lens for £250 but when the X S1 was offered at the same price I thought for the same price I can get a top quality camera with the same convince with more zoom comparable picture quality and whole host of tailored uses.Don't listen to all the knockers this camera is a steal at £250 the great pity is Fuji have discontinued producing this line.If your undecided then just get this camera while stocks last.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great lens at Amazon price, 23 April 2014

It's difficult to decide on a second lens with the amount on the market. Also what you require and what your prepared to pay.
My first thoughts were the convenience of a superzoom in particular the Tamron 18-270 or the Sigma 18-250.Then I thought
my reason for buying a DSLR was for image quality not the convenience of point and shoot.Secondly this being my first DSLR camera(canon600d) I wanted a zoom lens to completement my lens kit 18-55 which I got with my camera and a Canon 40mm pancake lens which gives good quality results.After trawling through many reviews I finally narrowed my options to two lens which fitted the amount I was prepared to pay at this point of my expertise.1. The tamron 70- 300 2. Canon 55-250 both have IS which in my view are a must have.I finally went for the Canon 55--250 mainly because it was gave me the same range as the superzooms I first considered. I'm very pleased with my choice the 55-250 so far is just what I need to progress my photography it' a great mid to long range all rounders.From portrait to all focal lengths it produces very good images.Even in poor light with a little thought good results can be obtained.The build quality feels a little cheap when you first unpack it but unless you intend to use it in the most hostile conditions it' more than adaquate.At Amazon prices this lens is a steal.
