Default Would you consider a Fuji DSLR?

I have used Fuji products for a long time, and was thinking; If they made a DSLR, would I actually be tempted? I know they have before, but they where just rebranded Nikons, what about a wholly original design? If they did I would be tempted.

The time for Fuji dSLR is past. They found their line with mirrorless cameras, just like in the past, with their medium format cameras.

True, but I would love it if they made a retro-cool DSLR, so match the style of their mirror less cameras.

Something like this would be awesome, it would have to be 4/3ds so it is compatible with their current lenses.

Hi
Fuji Velvia 50 ASA slide film was known to be the best during film era, I have used Velvia 50 and 100 ASA both. I will surely buy a Fuji DSLR, because I am sure Fuji will never make a poor quality camera.

Thanks

I personally would not consider a Fuji dslr. For me Canon and Nikon have the better options.

I really enjoy my Fuji X pro1 and use it more than my Canon 5D3. When want to use a dslr I use the Canon.

If I can find one when I have the budget I'd like to get that Fuji DSLR that has less on-body filtration and has expanded IR and UV sensitivity. I'm hoping to get into cause and origin investigation once I've established myself in the new fire department I'm joining after moving, and think that the UV capability might show solvent stains. Then again, the expanded UV range may not go down to200 - 220 nm or so where most aliphatic organics absorb.

FinePix S3 Pro UVIR is what your'e looking for. I know it was designed with law enforcement in mind, and is able to see blood and other bodily residue; wether it would work for you however I can't tell you.
