dvilaplana: Please don't be fooled by the size of the camera. Sony can make smaller FF mirrorless cameras when compared to DSLR, but the sensor size is what decides the size of the lens.
If someone wants smaller lenses then we have to go for smaller sensor size like APS-C ...
M, since your point is similar to David's my reply is given for you both. Please, notice that you are comparing absolutely different kind of lenses! Cheers.
Oh yes sure, and we can make a hole on a camera cap and use it like a pinhole. That's less large and lighter even. Please...

Take the mini-ridiculous flash out and give a good EVF, even if that means to sport a slightly smaller screen. We tend to use the EVF all the time, the flash just sometimes or never. It's better to have an EVF than a mini flash! We can carry a mini flash in the pocket just in case is needed.
BTW, did you notice that the zoom doesn't extend manually despite the nice ring? I'm afraid it works electronically. That switch on the shutter button is not the on/off that is set in between the two dials of modes and exposure, it's the wider-tele power for the zoom.
So at the end it looks like another "almost a good camera" by Canon. A pitty, it could have been a serious candidate to the perfect camera for travellers.

No doubt f1.7 is a step forward, but let's wait the new X-Vario and how fast is its zoom and then we'll see if they take into account requested features from existing X-series customers or they don't... BTW an integrated EVF would be much appreciated too, even if that makes disappear the tiny flash. You can carry a small flash on the pocket in case you need it, but the EVF is essential all the time.
OK, fair enough. Thinking of all those great photographers who used Leica lets say that a View Finder is essential all the time. Now, do you really think they will set an Optical one? Like in the M? If there is any chance of having one integrated in the X series cameras, it will be most likely Electronic. Despite of the great photographers.

Haven't you watched "The Planet of the Apes"?? We all must be careful. This is just the first step... Now we give them a camera and then they will rule the world!
gl2k: Fast AF, integrated VF, standard hot shoe, handy controls layout, enough control elements to quickly do what you want. What more could one ask for ?I'm not really a fan of this retro-look but that's just my taste.
Anyway, this camera if it holds what it promises on paper is a real winner !!!
24-105 f2.8-4 lens? That'd be the perfect travel camera! ;-).

That's too much nice and simple. They prefer complicated things, obviously... ¿?

The interviewer has lost a great chance to pay him back properly just telling: "It's funny, just that is what Hasselblad's people told me about your S System..."
C'mon guys, "Appears not to fix..."???. Why do not you say the truth? It is easy, you only need to write "Does" instead of "Appears". Why are you so afraid? Shame on Fuji, not you.
