Re: DXOMark IS TOTALLY WRONG ON FUJI X-S1 SENSOR SIZE !!!
When we published our test results for the Fujifilm FinePix S1-X, part of the article was inadvertently left out. We would like to draw your attention to the following information:
“The Fujifilm FinePix X-S1 belongs to the Fuji X family of premium cameras, which are characterized by high-end specifications, high-quality optics, and an exemplary finish. The Fujifilm X-S1 offers a 26x lens that covers an ideal 24-684mm focal range. Its maximum aperture is quite generous for a bridge (f/2.8–5.6) and its optical formula incorporates four aspherical lens elements and two UD glass elements. In the field, photographers will appreciate its manual zoom ring. The Fuji X-S1 differs from all its competitors with its 2/3" CMOS sensor, slightly larger than the biggest (1/1.7") sensor for expert compacts (Olympus XZ-1, Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX5, Canon PowerShot S100), and 50% bigger than the usual 1/2.3" bridge sensors.”
The Fujifilm X-S1 indeed has a larger sensor (2/3") than those of the Olympus XZ-1, the Panasonic LX-5, and the Samsung EX-1, to which it was compared in our test. This information does not affect the Fujifilm S1-X's score, which stands at 140th place in the DxOMark rankings and is better than the scores for these other cameras with smaller sensors.
We sincerely apologize for having omitted this information.
