I concur. I would much rather set a minimum shutter speed versus some arbitrary 1/focal length rule. With the OIS lenses you can typically get sharp shots at less than 1/focal length.

Similarly, when shooting action I usually want a minimum of 1/500th of a second in order to freeze action. This has nothing to do with focal length. I for one am glad for the change and think it is a much better implementation.

Considering these are interchangeable lens cameras, you're going to have to change the minimum shutter speed every time you change the lens.  Of course, you're completely out of luck with these nice Fujifilm zoom lenses unless you think "one size fits all (focal lengths)' for minimum shutter speed.
