mrmart: Great! Now all I need to do is disguise my Apple ipod as an old Sony Walkman and I will have completed my 'Old Git' look.
starwolfy: Sure that sounds like an amazing re-born for the X100, now called X100S for Steroid.Too bad Fuji didn't agree fixing my sticky aperture problem that occured with my X100...for free.

THAT MAKES ME MAD! Chiselers!
ybizzle: As a man who has had (and has) many cameras, I can assure you that I will be purchasing both this and the X20. My X100 has already paid for itself though my professional work and the X100S is going to be a welcome addition to my collection. Fuji has been on a roll year after year with the X series.
Good professional input.
jedinstvo: As a faithful user of the GSW 690 film camera I'd like to see something similar in digital. A giant sensor!
Yours is a rare substantive post. Yes, I had DOF challenges with 690. One of these days, I'll rent a Graflex and take some "real" photographs.
By the way, I'm taking your observation about the D800 to heart, meaning that I'm now basically sold on it.
travelwalk: No viewfinder = toy camera
A VF, even a spectacularly troglodytic one, is a help in achieving steadiness at 600mm. It's also of some use when the sun nullifies your LCD.
The price is really nice, though.
Timmbits: Wow, one little thing in common with a real camera, and you guys all go crazy. Another inconsequential tiny sensor consumer camera.
And I often carry my antique Canon SX110 IS to cover the long end. It's fine for picking out architectural details like roof cornices and terra-cotta boar's heads. But I wouldn't trust it for two- page magazine spreads. I guess. But what in hell would I know?
I too have a 690. Got it over 25 years ago.
I'd like a giant sensor too. Youngsters who never did 6x9, 4x5, or 5x7 don't know the magic in the unending resolution of an MF print.
Pat Cullinan Jr: What kind of pictures does this camera take? Good? Bad? :)
You tell me.
I await your devastating reply.
achim k: I would buy it if it had a viewfinder (EVF or GOOD optical)!
A VF on a compact is NEVER about framing. It's about steadiness. Especially at longer focal lengths in a wind.
A VF also comes in handy (as a stopgap) when the LCD is blitzed by the sun.
That's all I'm saying.
A VF is a HELP in making good pictures. It increases the number of good pictures that you can produce in a day. It helps you not to waste your time.
It provides an extra margin of effectiveness.
Yes, you can take good pictures without a viewfinder, but with a viewfinder you can take more of them in a greater variety of circumstances, avoiding failures and making a better use of time.
I once had a tiny Sony P150, smaller than the MX-1. It had a tiny ZOOM viewfinder, which provided the benefits cited above.
samhain: Too bad it doesn't have a viewfinder.
A VF also comes in handy (as a stopgap!) when the LCD is blitzed by the sun.
fakuryu: A preview of a Pentax? In DP? In 2013? Times have changed indeed!
Love that dog!

Husaberg Grok: Calling people who defend a system they love a "fanboy" is getting pretty old.
Insulting people and the systems they like is just weird and immature.
Over the 50+ years that I've enjoyed photography I've enjoyed many fine formats and brands and I've never felt it neccessary to put down or denigrate another enthusiust or their gear. Neither have I been put down in the real world.
Just think about it.
1) I am the President of the Universe.
2) No. You have a point there.
Still, Grok's posting here is a model of comity.
Pat Cullinan Jr: Time to shut down this poll.
I'll post 110 comments and then let's throttle it.
CarvingPhoto: This should of been the look of the k0-1. Give it a a hotshoe, interchangeable lens, and at least an ap-c sensor. Pentax's pancake lens would look so good on that body!
Young people flunk geometry.
Clint Dunn: So they make a great looking P&S and then tack on a cheap looking tiltable screen....ughh. Am I the only one who doesn't want a tilting screen on my camera?? So much unnecessary depth added to the camera.
Tilting screens are becoming the rage among the 17-to-33.3 demo.
D1N0: Scene modes: Baby1, Baby2
I want Cat4, Cat6.
Time to shut down this poll.
c76: We should all stop, new technology coming every year, new models will just show up when you just feel good with your full system, all these review site will just make you spend more money, everyone should focus on skills not specs :)
Jah, it gets tiresome.
naththo: Oh what a joy of full of troll filling up again! I hope I can be a copper and take him to jail for hacking the forum to allow him to return under the nose of dpreview forum. You blinking Just Posted come here and listen to me you twerp! You broke the rules and/or law by many section: Flaming/Trolling, abusing the forum (by hacking dpreview to allow you to access back into forum while banned is/was not lifted) your ip (True ip from internet provider not the dynamic ip by connect its different is the only one true ip is banned and you would never be able to return).
