Why should all "logic" be forced one way only?

By definitely taking a different design approach to the X-T1 that to the rest of its X series of cameras, it may be quite obvious Fujifilm wanted to hide under the impression their camera being a DSLR, thus equally capable in user's first glance.

And what a better role model to follow than a K-5II, which was one of best crop sensor DSLR in the market, now superseded by the K-3?

The truth is, Fuji's X cameras don't sell well as the DSLRs, not even remotely close, and Fuji doesn't break it even. And there is a lot Fujifilm needs to resolve along the way of building a successful line and a system, that should be even as half as good as Pentax's in terms of reliability and soundness of design.

I do wish them luck though, but the X-T1 camera clearly shows that X-form factor as it was, in the form of a rangefinder, wasn't quite the winning bet for everything they have imagined.

everybody copied the K5.  God created the K5 in his image and all other cameras followed.
