I don't understand why people think it would be any different from new xp1?

There is nothing different inside the camera. There is the same processor that is driven by same new firmware. The sensor is the same. There is no additional magic chip or anything else. The digital cameras are now pretty much driven only by the firmware algos. We got rid of all additional sensors and mirrors from dslr where the phase shift had its own dedicated processor.

The processors in digital cameras are pretty much like processors in iphone, they could do anything what you program them to do. They could run game or be used in toaster.
If you use same lens, sensor, processor and firmware, you have the same camera.
Only the interface will differ (lack of ovf, +flash etc...)

I'll be interested to see how the AF compares to the XP1 with the new v2 firmware.

I may consider it as a second body for my X system.
