Is that the "street price" for the 16mm, 435 Euro?
Harold66: Indeed that rangefinder is a BIG part of the cost in a M. If this min M let s hope that :It will be equipped with latest 2.3 million EVF and not an outdated oneIt will allow user to use other ratios ( 5:4 , 4:3) than the very oblong 3:2 ratioIt will offer a better LCD or OLED ( better for outside) than the M
Of course! That's why a Bessa costs US$700 and the cheapest Leica US$5K - a costly rangefinder.
BoFiS: Ugh, STOP IT, basically everything 4.3" and above is too big to hold and use in one hand...our hands have not grown in the last couple of years, why have our phones?! Also all that extra space is silly if you're just going to fill half the home screen with an even-larger clock/weather widget.
Not everyone keeps looking at home screen.
///M: WOW, Canon can spend all this R&D on matched cinema lenses (which will likely be only sold to rental houses) for this niche market, but can't come up with a viable mirrorless camera with compact lenses, really? 1/2 of the DSLR sales in Japan are mirrorless cameras, it does not matter how small the crop sensor bodies get, they are still big and bulky compared to the micro 4/3 and other systems.
The problem is not failing on developing mirroless cameras, the real problem is that they are failing in developing new lenses and new DSLRs as well - with some exceptions, of course. Good thing they still have compacts' and video market...
Tough competitor for Nikon D5100!
Was the pool filled with Perrier? Otherwise, IQ would be compromised.
robmanueb: Nikon Coolpix A killer. Faster lens, quarter of the price and it has an optical viewfinder.
A quarter of the price, and God (or someone a bit more interested in this comparison) knows how many times smaller sensor.
carlosdelbianco: A 113 grams camera is cool, but lens could be faster since the sensor is so tiny. It is a f/16 lens in terms of DOF, isn't it?
Not pedantic at all, thanks for clearing this up!
caver3d: What is the actual physical size of the 14 mp sensor? Someone know it?
Crop factor of 5,5 compared to 35mm.
spinningtape: I like it, but what is up with that giant red "14 Megapixels" sign. Totally kills the whole "vintage" fantasy.
I believe it's just a sticker.

atone2: Definately not as good as the original X100. What are you doing Fuji??
Look at her eyes, her face, her hair... horrible rendering...
What´s going on here? I really don´t like the X-trans approach...
Focus point is on her left arm, but still...
Unfortunately I can't undo my click to this page...
edgar005: Same cheap plastic phone the only differens is the size
Good luck on carrying that aluminum iBrick. I'll stick with unbreakable screen and cheap plastic covers.
Great news! I'm willing to buy my first Samyang very soon...
ryder78: It looks like a $120 point-n-shoot. At least make the camera looks more like business if you want to put a huge sensor in that body.
Better buy a Fuji if you plan to show it to your friends.
Photomonkey: You ask for it, they will make it and we will whine about the price.
Whatever... If it was included some people would bitch about paying for something they would just throw in their drawers. Plus, for the 35/50mm people, they already have options out there.
I'm sorry to disappoint you all, but this seems to be the perfect compact camera.
This lens design clearly can't be produced.
