Marty4650: Sony found a void, and filled it.
There were PLENTY of really nice MILC cameras on the market, but none had full frame sensors. The very best MILC cameras were those that were "about as good" as DSLRs with crop sensors.
Most MILC cameras have trouble tracking moving objects (unless they incorporate PDAF), there was very little incentive for a high end user to switch to MILC for any reason other than "portability." They would gain nothing in image quality over their DSLR, would lose some size and weight, but then suffer a AF tracking penalty.
Then Sony came alone with the first full frame MILC camera, and soon had four different versions of it out, using three different outstanding sensors. They even have one model with IBIS. And plenty of new lenses from Sony and Zeiss.
Now the high end user can trade UP from a crop sensor DSLR to a full frame MILC camera. And will often have a kit smaller and lighter than his DSLR kit.
But actually no lenses opposite Fuji who did the rigth thing 😀

IT - IS - A -UNIQUE - LUXURY- ITEM !!!
I also don't see ANY logic to buy something exact same than Panasonic models. But this one is UNIQUE !

Very funny to see how some people don't know at anything about what there are talking about :-)
Depreview: "Pair the X-T1 up with lenses like the stellar XF 23mm F1.4R or the XF 56mm F1.2R and it can produce absolutely wonderful results, aided substantially by its ability to focus them accurately wide open without any fuss. The net result is that the overall image quality it can offer, as a combination of camera and lens, is exceptional. The flipside though is that the lenses are all pretty expensive; as yet Fujifilm doesn't offer anything to match the smaller, slower but cheaper primes you'll find in other systems."
I dont understand why Dpreview say that fuji's "super primes" is to expencive ?Same type of lenses from Canon and Nikon is even more expencive, and what about Leica ? :-)))
Thanks a lot!BRKim
Thanks for the your nice comments ;-)I have looked for your images ... but hard to find....
So sad to see all these "stupid" comments from people who even not have had their hands on X-Pro1. These raw files looks completly wrong. I am so happy for the output I get from my X-Pro1 and its so much better than what I see here. I own Nikon D700 also (And love it), but my Fuji X-Pro1 is doing a better job when I compare image quality.
Looks very good! Extremely sharp, good color ect.
