Interesting... Fuji developed a fancy-shmancy sensor that is used by Panasonic, but in their own camera they use an outdated sensor from Sony...

Desert Rose, there's a picture of X-100 right above in this article.

Are they sure? $649 US Dollars? Not Rubles?

AndroC: US$649 for a modern copy of a Jupiter? Get a camera with one at an op shop for $2. Or buy an original on ebay for $10, including camera. Sheer exploitation of Gen XYZ from Lomography. Unbelievable. I can only echo all the other similar responses.

I highly doubt that one can find an old f/1.5 Jupiter on ebay for $10. But, I agree, $649 is kind of... unreal..

I agree, articulating screen is very helpful for angled shots and video, I use it a lot on my GH1 and FZ1000. But 180º tilt... they should've made it swivel.

Wubslin: 'faux leather'

Stopped reading right there. Goodbye Fuji, you won't be missed.

You definitely won't be missed by Fuji either. Btw, just curious, what brand of cameras do you wear?

Peiasdf: Insane price. I have a X-E1 but recently got a Panasonic GX7 because I want IBIS and A7IIs are out of my price range. Wow that Panasonic is fast. Fast AF, fast manual setting and overall just feel much more responsive than the X-E1 on latest firmware.

For $1700, that's quite a bit of premium to the $1100 GX8 which have IBIS, 4K and touchscreen.

I have an X-E2 and Panasonic FZ1000 and old but good hacked GH1, plus Canon 7D, and I agree with you 100%! The price is absolutely unjustified. With all due respect and love to Fuji.

DaveClark: No stabilization renders the video mode useless. I got rid of my X100 because the video was horrible. I got a Sony RX100M3 to replace it because it had better video and I could shoot handheld at lower ISO due to stabilization. I tested both cameras side by side and in most cases the Sony did just as well because of lower ISO. I might have considered the X-E2S, but not now.

Who buys Fuji for video, anyway?

I'm so happy I didn't sell my XE2! And in Feb, when it turns into a practically new camera (for free), I will be even happier! Thank you, Fuji!

Totally agree! And if Fuji made a decently priced 35mm rangefinder now, I'd buy it in a heartbeat!

:) I still have my 1st digital cam - Minolta A1 :) It came with 256mb CF card! Still working!

You looked , then you have less than a half... You don't like it, don't look, don't speak for everyone.

MysteryLemon: I just don't get it.

I didn't get it with Sony's offerings either.

If you want a camera better than your phone, get a camera, don't merge a camera lens and phone body to make some god awful mutant camera that will perform worse and be an ergonomic nightmare...

Many years ago people were saying the same about still photo snd video in one body...

redeye47: I don't understand why XL doesn't work on all m43 mount cameras. Help me out here.

Yeah.. I got excited first, since I have my old but trusted and perfectly working GH1 and a good set of Canon lenses with 7D, but then read this part... Well, I think I will give it a try anyway. If something happens to GH1, not a big loss.. will be an excuse for upgrade ;)
