codeNsnap: Can someone please clarify the fps in FX mode with battery pack?
OK..so only the DX mode benefits from the battery pack..did a quick search on D800 and its FX fps also did not benefit from the battery pack...
Can someone please clarify the fps in FX mode with battery pack?
codeNsnap: Any news of a fast 23mm from Pentax ? Would have considered K3 over Fujifilm XT-1 if there was a fast 35mm equivalent option for K3.
@DDWD10 Unforfortunaly the Sigma would be a bulky option for my use case :(..BTW can I ask you why you returned the XT-1 ?

codeNsnap: In contrast this is how Fujifilm reacted within about a week of the XT-1 flare reports -
I'm not sure if Nikon will learn anything out of this D600 debacle.
Sorry I didn't follow the orb issue closely. But I know that they replaced the sensors for those camera owners. In any case, at least in the last two years they seem to be very customer focused company with their firmware updates and product enhancements. It is possibly that have embraced their kaizen philosophy recently even more. At least it is change in the right direction for the customers.

Galbertson: Well, have reached my limit...or patiece..to continue my hopes of getting into x-t1. I truly was beginning to believe i could overcome non tactile rear tiny buttons. But this breaking news of light leaks has forced me to lose faith in fuji. Just gotta move on to sony a7, maybe a6000.
By the way, before you tell me of sony's own light leaks, at least theirs was in relatively common area around lens mount, fuji's from side of camera, flap. Whereelse in body is a failed part? Not willing to wait to find out.
They have acknowledged the problem and are proving free servicing now -http://translate.google.com/translate?sl=auto&tl=en&js=n&prev=_t&hl=de&ie=UTF-8&u=http%3A%2F%2Ffujifilm.jp%2Finformation%2Farticlead_0251.html

Damn. Wish it was the D400 or D710/D800S release instead.
mbrobich: Just PRE-ordered mine. Got a FREE grip included with the pre-order !!
Dang can't wait !!!!!
OK looks like that is a promotion only in Canada :(
Which retailer ??
codeNsnap: @Barney Is is possible to please clarify the use of the Focus Assist button? I wonder if it can be used as AF-ON (for focus tracking) in Continious Mode? AF-L seems too far to the right to be able to use for focus tracking.
OK, I think I get it. AF-L is simply to statically lock focus. And this could be used either in Manual Focus mode or Static Focus mode. I guess the way to track focus (present only AF-C mode) is to change the mode to AF-C and keep pressing the shutter release half way. Right?
If my understanding is right, then there is no AF-ON mode where the focusing is done by a back button and not the shutter release button.
Thanks for the clarification. But is there an option to do focus tracking at all then? With a toggle functionality, it sounds like it would just be "AF Hold" and no "AF-ON". That is a good point about the position not being a problem because of the size.
OK the Fuji guys clarified it on the video. Focus Assist zooms in on the focus point. And the AF-L and AE-L buttons can be customized. So I believe the AE-L button can be configured to act as AF-L and do focus tracking. It could be nice to have a confirmation on this before pre-ordering it.

jtan163: Thats not a D400!
damn d400..have given up on it now
What a bummer ! Another 39 AF point FF...I was hopeful of a 51 point AF looking at the AF-ON button in those teaser videos..
Hipster camera..610 is cheaper with video
I think I should give up hope on a Nikon FF that does 6fps with 51 AF system that costs $3000 or lower..I already gave up hope on the D400

fad: Most people do not understand the benefits of pro focus/metering with 51 points on the D4/D800 --which this camera does not have.
DF hasOnly 2k pixel imagining sensor, instead of 62k.Only narrow DX style 39point AF instead of pro 51 point with wider area.
This is a down-spec'd system that will no doubt be fine for MF, and for center focus/recompose. It will be inferior for selecting focus points. And it will be much inferior for Auto-Area focus with face detection. The latter is truly excellent for action photography. I use it for street most of the time.
If Nikon had not crippled the metering/focus system from that in the D800/D4, this would be the street camera I am looking for.
Likewise, despite sharing the D4's sensor, don't expect the Df to be anywhere's as capable for low light shooting.
I guess one could say about it, faster AF than the A7, but deliberately crippled by Nikon to not compete with other models.
@jogger I have been looking for a 51 point AF Nikon FF that can do 6fps with at least 16MP at the cost of D800 or lower. This is for bird photography and wildlife..there is no body from Nikon in this range right now..and looks like DF also does not fit this bill
Are you sure about 51 points not being there ? If that is true what a bummer !
