Fail camera? Sorry but i am not in. It is a great camera with some initial problems that were solved (like Nikon D600? -laught-).

Did Nikon sell the D600 for 50% off? No. I didnt think so. The X-S1 was an epic failure by Fujifilm.

A 650€ bridge camera with some initial problems is hard to sell.

Look at the new Sony RX10. Priced FAR higher than the X-S1. Of course, it probably wont be built as poorly as the X-S1.

But the camera is still great. I want to thank fuji for the risk of the innovation with the bigger sensor on a bridge ever.

A comertial failure? i don't know. A fail camera, sure not!

There would be an X-S2 if it were a success.

No opinion on the XS1, but generally speaking a camera can be a good product and still a commercial failure. Quality and popularity don't always go hand in hand.
