I guess that class-action lawsuit was all the incentive they needed.
I think one thing that isn't often taken into consideration is just how many excellent models are available for peanuts on the used market these days. Surely that must be cutting into new sales to some degree. I would also agree with a previous poster in saying that some of these companies need to focus on fewer models and then push them with more aggressive marketing.
As ugly as I think this camera is, it's nice to see new design choices.
I can't say I agree with a few of the choices (#3 for instance), but to each his/her own. 1, 8, and 9 are my favorites.
Looking at the raw comparisons (between ISO 800 and 3200), the detail appears faintly smeared to my eyes. It's subtle, but it looks as though Fuji might be applying slightly more RAW NR than its competitors. With that being said, though, the results still look great. This X-T1 is a very nice addition to the mirrorless world.

Congrats, everyone. Some very impressive shots.
Stellar optics, no doubt, but man are these Touit lenses ugly.
I know it's not weather-sealed but is it metal or is it plastic?
What an awesome series of shots. Thanks for posting this, Dpreview.
Will be a tough sell at $1599, I think. The optics would have to be truly astounding.
Combatmedic870: Too late. You've been one uped
The Fuji isn't stabilized.
Almost makes sense given the current selfie trend. However, most of those who are compulsive selfie shooters are also compulsive phone holders. Are they really going to put their Galaxy or iPhone down to pick up a Canon point-and-shoot? Not very likely, IMO.
Not even a silver award. I hope the dpreview staff are prepared for some Nikon fanboy rage.

Yep, journos risk their lives to bring us the truth (how many reporters killed in Syria this year?), and dpreview readers moan.
About normal, then.
You people are more depressing than the pictures.
Yes, because technically perfect photos of cats and photos depicting violence and suffering are the only two options. C'mon, that's not only ridiculous; it's flat-out moronic. How about the photographer who spends six weeks in the jungle, tracking a wild jaguar to get that perfect shot? Is that shallow and pointless to you? There's plenty of beauty in the world, too, and capturing it isn't always as easy as pointing a lens at the family pet.
Moving images, certainly (and depressing as hell), but surely there's room in these "best" lists for images that don't involve suffering.
I think people are forgetting (or simply never knew) how good 1/1.7 sensors can be at ISO 100-400, which is usually all you need anyway due to the fast, high quality lenses that these types of cameras come with. Frankly, I think it's comical how quickly everyone jumped on the 1" sensor bandwagon after the release of the RX100.
Do we even need silly awards and percentage scoring? I'd be happy with just the pros and cons list and the IQ test results. Pretty easy to make up my own mind from there. Oh, but I guess I'm forgetting that most of the folks here don't want to make up their own mind; they want the camera aficionados to make it up for them.
PhotoKhan: Wow!...Together with the previous low light samples, these are, indeed, remarkable.
What an incredible day and age where we can get this kind of performance from a $650 DSLR...Paint me impressed.
"Remarkable" is a stretch. The Pentax K30 offers better IQ, plus weather sealing at a lower price point. And from what I'm seeing, the newer Pen models have about the same IQ as the SL1, with arguably better JPEGS. The SL1 offers competitive IQ in a very ugly and cheap-looking body. Why anyone would buy this over a T5i is a mystery to me.
I think it's sad that, with all the talented and classy photographers out there deserving of exposure, it's jerks like this who end up grabbing headlines at such high-traffic sites as Wired and Dpreview. Brutal.
