What's funny is that I consider this to be retro. It has a strong 80s vibe, like something done by Frog Design. Personally, I think any SLR-shaped camera looks weird with a pancake lens, the T1 included.

The clashing colors don't make anything look good, just think of the black/hot pink conversion Fuji will sell you for your X camera.

While still a modern design, if you dial back the colors and put on a larger lens its not bad. That being said, I much prefer the style of the Fuji rangefinders. Even if the EOS-M had the same dials as the X-Pro, I would still prefer the latter.
