Unless my eyes are deceiving me, in good light the 5 looks better than the 5S.

Will you be adding the Leica cameras? I really like this new setup. When will it replace the older one on the site?

I'm not sure you aren't giving Fuji too much credit for carrying about the customer versus their bottom line. The X-Pro1 is still a relatively new camera and sales were probably not what Fuji expected after their wildly successful X100. As an early X100 owner, I can tell you that there are still many things that need to be addressed in the X100 and no firmware 2.0 has materielaized and they are still selling this model. Many of these improvements would be welcomed by X100 owners that seem to have been forgotten.

Even though I still like my X100 and haven't sold it, I didn't buy into the X-Pro1 or X-E1 because of the way they treated X100 owners. Instead I purchased an OM-D and I may now replace the X100 with the new Sony R-1. Had Sony built in a view finder there is no doubt that I would already have my order in for the R-1.

How would RF focusing work with R lenses or wide angle or telephoto M lenses? Answer, it probably won't. You need clip on EVF or P&S style hold the camera out and use the LCD. This is real Leica inovation? Fuji & Sony are putting them to shame.
