He's really to the point, isn't he?

Its another review, by someone that does not own the camera.

Do you complain when DPR does a review?  They don't own the cameras either.

The gizmodo review was very non biased.  I can see why it gets panned here.

I'm not a fanboy by any means the Fuji has shortcomings but which camera doesn't. My only real gripe after 4 weeks of use, is the video button is too easily turned on, especially when adjusting the exposure compensation whilst the camera is at the eye. I expect that to be remedied with a firmware update.

I love the dials, they are easy to manage and the D pad has the right feel for me, but then I don't have fingers like cuban cigars. I have found using it to be a totally pleasurable experience, of course I could find fault somewhere but the faults are really minor. The way Fuji have approached camera design is not perfect but its much better than some others, where operations become severly limited by kludgy menu's.

I thought the X pro 1 to be one of the best cameras I have used, but the Xt1 is a little better.
