It is a lovely and well designed camera, though, isn't it? Could be the ultimate walk around that isn't a compact.

I wonder, can you experiment, for photography's sake, in the same way that you can with a Pentax K5+? These Pentax cameras are chock full of options and customizations. Just awesome for exploring a creative side with light outside of a controlled studio.

May not stand out so much in a crowd-but it has been fun learning photigraphy with my K5 II.

Love those ISO and shutter speed dials on the X-T1.

It won't be the ultimate walk around camera until they get a excellent walk around zoom lens. Neither X-mount or m4/3 have anything resembling the DA 18-135 WR or even the DA 17-70 (the Oly 12-50 has a terrible reputation).

Do you mean like these that Fuji is releasing?

  • XF50-140mm f/2.8 R OIS WR
  • XF16-55mm f/2.8 R OIS WR
  • XF18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 R OIS WR

The first two aren't walk around lenses.

The last (18 - 135) has no release date (or even year!) and no price.
