    When the GF3 + 14mm lens is the same price as a X10, how can people consider the Fuji?

    • MK

      you are covering only 28mm equivalent. in event that you want to use any other focal length, you will spend considerably more money; especially if you want to use low f stops. the cameras are basically the same size but you will have to carry around lenses which relatively speaking decreases portability. i considered it and i am presently enjoying it more than the gf1 or the gh1 i’ve owned even though the sensor does present certain limitations.

      • Mr. Reeee

        Marginally ess portability, but far better image quality. If you carefully choose smaller lenses… 9-18mm, 14mm, 17mm, 20mm, 14-42mm X… it becomes even less of an issue.

        Don’t forget that for about $25 you can adapt virtually ANY lens, from ANY system made in the past 50 years. If you have friends or family who have an old 35mm SLR kicking around the house you could have a lens bonanza for next to nothing.

        I recently picked up a used GF2 for $250. Throw in the 20mm and you still get the whole package under $600. I recently did exactly this.

        My turn — what do you do with the fuji if you want different focal lengths ?

    • The GF3 kit lens is 2 stops slower then X10, you wont get significantly higher IQ with the GF unless you’ll buy into more expensive lens

      • elflord

        There is a 14mm f/2.5 kit lens available.

    hmnn…is the Leica 25mm f/1.4 lens not selling well? I hope we will see price drop the the Nokton 25mm f/0.95. Anyone know where I can order the SLR Magic/Noktor Hyperprime 12mm f/1.6?

    • Mr. Reeee

      Voigtländer lenses are NOT commodity lenses, so it’s unlikely there will be any sort of sale… ever. Look for a used one. There are a few people who have not been satisfied with them. I can’t image that. It’s my favorite lens!

    • groubas

      I would certainly get significantly better separation and bokeh with a more expensive lens as you said. But at least I paid $600 and I have the option open. If I buy the X10 I pay $600 in order not the have the option.

    Panasonic must be serious about rolling their new stuff out on time if they are making deals on this fine fine piece of glass.

  • WT21

    It is a good lens. I bought it at $599, and it’s certainly worth it at $539. If the lens settles in at a street price of $400 used (~$500 new), then it’ll really help the system hit it’s stride. It’s a great addition, and I’m very happy with my 14/PL25/PL45 trio.

  • Nelson

    Compare to that Zeiss this is a great bargain!

    • joel

      Compared to the CZ 24/1.8 you are right the pl25 is much cheaper, it is also smaller and optically superior..

  • groubas

    Turns out I was wrong. Adorama now has a GF3 deal where you get both the 14-42 and the 14mm for $600. But I guess the Fuji X10 is still a bargain for some.

  • ShawnM

    GF2 kit is now $299 at Amazon

    • admin

      Thanks!

      • RJHD3

        Where is it that price on Amazon? Can only find the $389 kit.
