Jiri Folta: I was taken by the quality of Fujifilm cameras and lenses. Not only optical quality but also craftsmanship quality. It was major reason why I sold my Nikon D7000 and all those plastic Nikon lenses made in China, Thailand and so on.
Now, I'm reading that new Fuji lenses are plastic and made in China (XC 16-50mm OIS and XF 27mm (as written on fujirumors.com - First Look: X-M1 with New Kit Zoom and Pancake Lens). An idea of photographic company that is going to bring quality materials and some quality spirit is gone. I hope not but it seems like things are going this way.
Reading some day that X-Pro 2 or X-E 2 are made in China I would sell it all away.
I don't want to buy plastic in China made lenses and cameras. I want in Japan made metal quality. For me, buying Fuji was not only buying photographic tool, it was also investment in the future! It was some kind of promise many photographers had accepted.
I hope we can call Go Fuji Go in the future again!

curiously to know what is your choice of plastic lens MIJ and Metal lens MIC

Sergey Borachev: I would consider the NEX-6 and the 16-50mm for a handy little camera that has every important feature built in (EVF, flash, tiltable screen, WiFi), to take everywhere in a jacket pocket. I won't buy any other lens for it and just treat it like an advanced fixed lens compact. With the typical high ISO performance of Sony sensors, it should be fine for most impromptu situations and cope reasonably well. I don't think that there is any other camera with an equivalents size that has the same combination of IQ and convenience. The E-PL5 comes closest as a small all-in-one high-performance camera but has neither a built-in EVF nor built-in flash.

G1X relatively slow AF
