DonSantos: I pre-ordered one. It'll go very nicely with the new 23mm 1.4 lens.
@abortabort - I don't think I ever mentioned EVF... I am not suggesting anything, It was a question. Just a question, not a suggestion, not an advice not an assumption. Read again.@King Penguin - yes, that makes sense.
arhmatic: I really need to question Fuji on this one...
Do we really need FOUR tiers? What's next now? an X camera phone
They are really diluting the initial retro concept of the X cameras, as the real pro oriented mirrorless... this is why I initially bought into the system. Terrible move, if you ask me.
@Timmbith - Maybe... Personally, I don't think it should cover EVERY single market segment. Cover some, but cover them well. The Pro-1 did a great job at that time. It should diversify a little, but I definitely don't need an X phone camera next.
Chaitanya S: beauty of Fuji X camera was the retro design and built in viewfinder and this new camera ruins it. Also the rear input dial is in awkward position.
@timmbith -- I think it's more about Fuji losing the initial retro design concept, that made the X series unique. VF - I don't care...
Why would you get the most expensive lens with the cheapest body?
ogl: Camera with good sensor and good price at last. Glory to God that no X trans sensor inside.
I know, the X was such a nuisance...
Fujifilm was almost able to stand apart for a little bit.Not anymore...
Now it's just as good as any Panasonic or Olympus.
Fuji, please take it back, and I might consider buying the 23mm 1.4...
CameraLabTester: Who dares wins.
and who dilutes, loses...
I really need to question Fuji on this one...
Look! it's got a movie record button!
Seriously, it's got several features that I wish my x-e1 had, such as better screen, supposedly better movie, wireless, etc, for just half the money I paid less than a year ago...
arhmatic: Well, it seems to be the most used camera phone on the market, for now... but what comparing 5 with 5s for photography, improvements are minimal. Yes, I read better flash, burst and 2.2... Using the iphone since 2007, have the 5, but definitely not worth the upgrade this time.
I paid the full price upfront, just so I am free. It's a personal decision regarding the contract.
What's missing? Manual control of exposure compensation and white balance. Quite a must to me. And then, the screen size...

arhmatic: There are probably reasons to do it this way, but one thing that really bothers me - Focus by wire, as opposed to mechanical. I think it's losing some of the great manual control - mechanical - that is achieve with the X cameras.
We have hard dials for exposure, aperture (it might be electronically controlled inside...) we have mechanical zoom for the 18-55, and I think focus should have been kept mechanical as well.
Again, there are probably reasons for this, but it really bothers me. I am surprised very few really care about non-mechanical focus. What am I missing?.
The manuam focus on the 23mm should be realy good. I am just not convinced that the focus by wire experience is equal or better than having a mechanicall coupled ring to the focusing elements.

We all remember the Hasselblad Lunar and Adobe Creative Cloud.The articles were ok... I almost passed them.
Then the comments... Hours and hours of fresh, original entertainment.Priceless!
sieem: Sometimes I click on an article just to read the comments, because I'm interested to see what people think about a new product or anything. Banishing the comments would make a website indeed a lot less interesting.
I opened the article and scrolled straight to the comments. But this is me...
KariIceland: Oh god I just want to smack those hipsters.
@KariIceland --- be cool, naturally, that be your real win.
No, just no!
Ben O Connor: They are good:
BUT resolution is still behind an D5200 (or is it?)BUT a %100 cover OVF of a Pentax K-30 is lackingBUT if the object moves to anywhere, they are not fast enought to captureBUT They are not good video cams (well maybe a Gopro / Sony action cam with wifi is better options compare to their vid. ) BUT They are not chep to own ( A decent 600D canon is very afordable nowadays) BUT there comes an amazing camera on a popular user interface on a Nokia phone (Lumia 1020)
Too many but, for a man who is not a but fettish :)
I like soaps that are kind or rounder, so it's easy to apply, and I like cameras that are a little smaller, metal, more square, etc.
It just needs to feel timeless as a machine, an inspiring piece of tech that leads to timeless photography... Size, materials and construction does matter in a camera, in addition to image quality and all that.
BUT... my fuji does NOT look like a melted soap bar... Sold!
Sharting to believe that having my Nikon SLR stolen last year was the best thing that happened to my photography. I am mirrorless now.
