I've seen photos of the camera and the flash from multiple sources, but so far nobody is showing the back panel of the flash... why is that?
I'd really like Olympus, Fujifilm and everyone else to come up with this "art mode bracketing", where you take the raw photo as is, plus the camera saves the JPG as "Pinhole Camera III" or whatever you select.
The argument is, you can only take a photo once before the moment is gone... sometimes you can't take separate photos if you want to try different art filters. This is the reason I never use art filters - because I still want the unaltered copy as is.
If this option exists, it should extend to being able to do Raw or jpg + Art 1 + Art2-3... Sure, card writing time extends, but it's fine to some. This is not available, as far as I know, but if it is, please ignore. I will post this in the Fujifilm forum, as I'd really like this to be available.
So this is a Leica branded lens, even though, as far as I know, Leica does not make M43 bodies. In a way, this puts Leica in the same market segment as Tamron or Sigma IMO. Nothing wrong with this, just different than what Leica is known for.
Elliot H: like it or not, this model will help bringdown ff cameras to the 1k level evenmore quickly than previously expected
...which is where they should be.
A good product, but I still personally prefer the old way of showing cameras - front, back, top, sides views.
arhmatic: If you are paying $3300 for this, then you can definitely add $249 for the TGA-1 thumb grip.
$250 is not irrelevant. It's overpriced.Sorry, my comment was not clear enough.
I agree, this could/should be included.

MariusM: So...these are made specially for the Fuji X-PRO cameras? ; )
Google Search will be confused.
Nice controls... ISO, exposure compensation, white balance.
Apple and iPhone, I know you are not going to change, but it's worth considering...
Oh... the eternal Fujifilm problem. 2-4 month delay seems to be standard here.
I don't see Fujifilm making any changes to the hardware at this point. There might be tweaks to the software, which can be done via firmware, but it's fair to assume that the hardware is probably the same... I am sure a good number of cameras have already been manufactured, why not ship those?
This is serious video improvement over the previous 16mp x-trans! Great Fuji. Pleasantly surprised how it stands against Sony or Panasonic.
Now if they can only deliver the camera as promised, on time...
Motors break. Lenses will not be supported forever. Fewer motors (or none) is the only way, IMHO. Mount yes, but there is always an adapter. Motors, not that much.
I am always more comfortable investing in old Nikkor lenses, where aperture and focus is all manual. I'll never buy anything with focus by wire". This is really the opposite of timeless IMO.
onlooker: Tiny electric motors and "forever" do not go together in the same sentence.
Ditch motors, or at least the focus by wire thing, and make them all mechanic. This should apply to all lens makers.
"forever"? ditch the focus by wire, typical, ALL lens makers. Do all mechanical. The only way to make them forever.
The reality is, -this wire thing might break anytime. Might not be supported in 2-3 decades...-compatibility is an issue. How can I use my Sony lens if suddenly I want to get a body from different maker? Adapters don't work. Make them all mechanical, so we can at least focus.
The reality is, my old, 1970s Nikkor works on my Fujifilm like a charm. All manual. Fujiflm on Nikon? Never. Not that I'd need that, but just a thought... Again, do all mechanical (manual or autofocus, your choice) then it's at least a step towards "forever".
Brian Isaman: Something tells me we are going to see endless articles about the A6300 from DPR staff. Get ready for the hyperbole.
Something tells me we are going to see endless articles about cameras here.../
It would be useful to see photos of the camera as it sits next to other objects.
Could be anything. Other cameras, phones, pencils, coffee cups etc.
Best way to understand the actual size of the object.
Great to see the gps included. This should really be standard everywhere. But LOL at the bump design. Wasn't there really any other place to put it?
webrunner5: The damned thing doesn't even have a handgrip! Maybe they could stick another knob on the front to make up for it. God knows it needs about 6 more knobs and dials.
What where they thinking??
@Bhima78 - and no hand grip AT ALL? damn those leicas...
Why is this news everywhere? BBC picked it up. dpreview now... Too many news outlets, photo-related or not, are giving attention to this. Next thing we know the guy is a rockstar. Just like media giving Trump attention for being controversial. This is just free publicity for a dumb subject. What good could ever come out of this?
