What if a camera looks different, would people still buy it?

The Fuji X100, introduced in 2010 was also an eye opener and no producer, except for Leica, was offering something similar.......and in spite of its different look it sold and is still selling well.

I bought it for the retro look but mainly because of the APS-C sensor and the IQ.

The K-01 would have been an interesting counterpart in the other, futuristic direction but after having purchased the Ricoh GXR plus additional viewfinder (and without eye sensor) I would never buy a camera without a viewfinder and an eye sensor.
