rurikw: Sigh. Yet one more splendid camera ruined by a fixed screen! Why doesn't anyone understand that an articulated screen is the heart of a live view camera. This one is dead.
Yes, especially because Sony made it with the 5N.
It's really too bad that considering its huge size, the camera doesn't even have a built in flash !
Neither a tiltable screen...
In an interview a Fuji representative said that they made the camera big on purpose.What’s the point of EVIL cameras then ?!
If the camera is not jacket pocketable, why bother making small lenses ?They could then make the lenses a bit bigger but faster / better.
I prefer they decided to keep their lenses compact though,only if a new version of the body, smaller and cheaper, without the viewfinder is planned.
Sony managed to make an extremely compact NEX 5N, they can do the same.
simon65: "In an interview with Amateur Photographer magazine, Fujifilm Digital Imaging director Adrian Clarke has said the X-Pro1 will be part of a range of X-mount cameras".
Lets hope that future members of the family will be a bit smaller and lighter than the X-Pro1 beastie.
Given that the X100 also uses an APS-C sized sensor I really don't know why the X-Pro 1 had to be any larger than it. Surely it didn't.
The extra size and weight of the X-Pro 1 dilutes what are meant to be the inherent advantages of mirrorless cameras over their DSLR rivals. Namely that mirrorless is meant to equal smaller and lighter!
Otherwise why bother?
I 100% agree with you Simon.
Sony managed to make a very compact NEX 5N,Fuji could make a viewfinder less version.
The poor kitten died today :( rest in peace.

Lext123, get a life.
a77shooter: amazing photos! but what should be the criteria? some images have gone through too much PP... wouldn't it be good if it just looks like an actual photograph taken with a camera instead of photographs fiddled with Gates or Jobs?
According to me, what matters is the outcome.
If you find that offensive, you have no humor !
cboulakia: Seems bizarre that no one is talking about image stabilization. One of the main benefits of this camera is that I can use it with my old lenses (Contax, OM, NAI). Seems to me, I'll take lower IQ with in - body IS for real-world shooting. I was really looking forward to this camera, because of the control layout, but I think I'll get a Pen.
Oh - I also find it bizarre there's so much emphasis on the price - total cost of this camera is equivalent to purchasing and developing about 100 rolls of film. All digital cameras (with the exception of the professional ones) are dirt cheap.
It has Hand Held Twilight, which is better than IBIS in my opinion.
He should not have gotten married :D
Peiasdf: So SONY won.... good thing too. I haven't see any progress on the m4/3 side since I bought an E-PL2. NEX-5N or 7 with a zoom and standard-wide prime will be a great kit.
I did read that they changed the optical design actually, but I don't know if this is true.
Ouah ! A real dragon ! Does it cast fire ?
Next time insert the birds better and say nothing :D
Is it possible to get it full size please ?The image is so beautiful that I'd like to put it as my wallpaper !

You should have won !
It will match my koala fur sweater !
That was about time !
I still wonder if I am drunk or it's the reality.
vFunct: It looks like this is the best consumer camera on the market.
This camera instantly made the Sony & u43 systems into useless junk.
u43 and Sony NEX sucks because the sensor is too big and uncompetitive against Nikon's DX system.
