slncezgsi: ... so the m4/3 is going viral ;)
What you failed to notice about the companies that joined m4/3 is many of them have different needs that you, perhaps? Please read and be educated.http://www.sansmirror.com/newsviews/m43-expands.html
SETI: If only Adobe can do full support of X-Trans CMOSNow it's deal killer for me. Lightroom can't do well with Fuji RAWs
I admire Fuji for thinking outside the box with their hardware and designs.
But, those in the market for this type of camera--like myself--rely on Adobe products in their workflow. For example, I only shoot RAW.
This shortcoming in image processing makes Fuji cameras (XF1 included) not an option.
Anyone seeing what this enthusiast compact offers to the segment that doesn't already exist? Just looking as the basic hardware of sensor, lens, processor...
Sensor:Larger than 1/1.7"? No.Multi-aspect ratio? No.
Lens:Faster aperture? No.Wider FOV (e.g. 24mm equivalent)? No.Longer telephoto? No.
Can't say I'm very excited about this one on paper, though it's still early to know the full story.
