Quote:Yes, the buttons are/were an issue - at least on the X-T1. Other than that I never had any usability problems that I found really disturbing. Sony is somewhat worse than Fuji in this respect (in my view).
The buttons on X-T2 were no bit better.
My complaints about usability (for X-T2, I haven't seen the menu of the X-H1) are
- the lack of banks for saving user-settings. At this price-tag it's a shame.
- To me it would be helpful to activate the electronic level just with a Fn-button. Totally easy on Nikon, totally impossible for Fuji, not even for the quick menu.
- The contradiction of having a front dial, but cannot use it to set aperture on a heavy lens with electronic aperture like 100-400.
- The contradictive use of a joystick and 4-way buttons. I just checked, I can use the joystick as well to navigate the menus. So, why through in 4 buttons but can not apply all functions on them?
- The selector for AF is hard to use, most of the time it jumps from S to M, but I want C (in the middle). Too soft, too fiddly, too tiny - and the new flagship comes with the same crap switch
- The manual focus mode. Clutched lenses will autofocus although the switch is set to M. That's ridiculous, especially in, say, astrophotography. When I want to manual focus, I don't need a camera with own ideas about! It doesn't matter if I switched "AF + MF" OFF or ON.
- Menu settings "drive mode": Here I can set up how much fps I want. AND the "advanced filter setting" WTF? What has fps to do with soft filter, miniature, elective color?
- To me it appears the mechanical designers are not talking to then software engineers. Some things you can do in three different ways, others in one which is highly complicated.
