entering a niche with a bigger camera, more expensive and worse lens performance...
bad news for Fuji...
missed opportunity..
the X70 could be a cheaper x100, say 500 usd less...
now it is up against a camera that can shoot both 35mm and 50mm eq in RAW (fuji cant if im not mistaken)...a cheaper option that has been around forever
the simple fact that the camera has almost no discussions on the fuji forum and already went down on prices shows that fujis product strategy didnt work..

misspiggy01: i know, everybody says how great the x-trans sensors are. i would love to love it too! so i have been duly looking at all the sample galleryies and studio tests since the x-pro 1. but i just can´t see it! all i see is a mushy mess at pixel level. and colors that are between waxy and watercolor at iso above 800. even around base iso on pixel level there is low contrast and softness that for me doesn´t make "the film look".
i´m not trolling here. i love fuji, since their film days. i love how the cameras look. i´m still shooting their slide films. and my first digital camera was the e900. perfect at the time! but for me the x-trans just doesn´t do it! to me there is something very "digital" about it.

no digital camera produces "the film look". Do your own PP and you get the film look that you want...both my X30 and X-E1 raw files are good for PP and i do get "the film look" you are looking for...cameras are just tools...

too little (but bigger and more expensive than competition) too late...

On article Pride and joy: shooting the Olympus PEN-F in Austin (285 comments in total)

And now to the comments:
"wow, m4/3 cameras are stupid" or "jehh, how can anyone use a camera with a sensor that small"...."the images lack...(fill the blank)". And etc and etc...
And very few or none like: i dont like it but i understand (or respect) the ones that like the system...
of course, if its not good for you, than it must be awful to anybody else...huh?
this kind of thought is inexplicable coming from a "photographer", but from a dpreview forum user on the other hand....

Its pretty easy (here at dpreview) to see complaints or rants about absolutely any modern camera.
Nowadays, the biggest problem is what operates it. The one behind the camera. Any modern camera can take great photos.

worldcup1982: Its incredible how ACR still SUC@#$%k to convert the X-TRANS files

me too...DCRAW (used in RT) seems better for rendering details
for any camera...

@MayaTlab0...
while i agree about what you wrote,
ACR, still, is worse than C1 and even RT (free)
for converting X-TRANS files.

worldcup1982: i once had a foveon camera...the 4.6mp version...
it was a good camera under the right circumstances (eg: sunlight with iso 100)
other than that the camera was awful...AF, buffer and etc...
on the other hand, great resolution, easily compared to 10 mp bayer cameras...

but in the end if the camera (any) frustrate your workflow, your way of shooting, you end up getting rid of it...

a good niche camera...

@historianx
nope, i meant the second sensor version...4.6mp X3=14mp
didnt have many problems with sigma SPP at the time but the files werent big...
these new cameras have huge files and i guess the SPP can be a PITA to handle these files...
anyway, if its for shooting low isos and have high resolution,
i use a nokia 808 nowadays and still can have a lower resolution zoom at higher isos...with a built in ND filter..
and sigma had other problems too. Battery life was awful...
