DE: The X-E1 added an external microphone connector. Was that something for which you'd been hearing a lot of demand, and do you have a sense for how much video is being shot by X-series owners?

KB: Yes, lots of demand. And as far as how much video's being shot, it's an interesting question. We originally designed these cameras with less of a focus on video -- we really made them for the photographer needing high quality stills. But I've received a few emails, seen a few blogs, and picked up a lot of different information that suggests a lot of people are using them for video, and they like the video quality. I think that's got a lot to do with the fact that you have manually-controlled lenses, and everything that videographers would want.

Sure, everything, except manually-controlled exposure, because no videographers would want that.
