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).

I was just thinking about your comment regarding the 18-135 WR, and I suddenly recalled why I find the K5 II so fun to use-the lens and camera body combo are the APS-C equiv of my P7700-the same versatility with both cameras, but Pentax has managed to produce a "coolpix" dslr, while Nikon hasn't (and probably can't).

Custom image using a color "wheel"-brilliant!
