Dennis: "uto ISO in manual mode, so you can specify the shutter speed and aperture you need, and let the camera set the ISO to match. But then the X-T1 ignores the exposure compensation dial,"

Argghhhh ! How hard is this to figure out ? 2+ years ago, I chose the Nikon D7000 over the Canon 7D for this reason. This is trivial stuff ! Nothing that isn't already being don in other exposure modes.

My thoughts exactly. For my shooting style it is essential. Of course should I buy X-T1 I'm sure I could adapt. But anyway, this makes the camera quite a bit less tempting.

There is always room for AF improvement. Good AF is the most important feature in cameras like D4. Give us more sensitive and faster AF with also better outer AF points. If the improvement is significant then improved AF alone could be enough to choose D4s. Improve high ISO and DR and it gets really interesting.
D4s will be about improvements, not real changes. If D4s improves AF, ISO and DR which to me (aside from great ergonomics) are the most important qualities in these cameras - I'm tempted to upgrade.

I want the infrared + laser af in all my cameras. I've been thinking about such a technology without even knowing that it was done already years ago. It would be very useful.

Rising concentrations of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere already seem to be influencing the intensity of rainfall and increasing the risk ofl damage from flooding. Warmer air holds more moisture and makes heavier rains possible. We have always had floods, but they are getting worse and more frequent. Photographic community should be very much aware of the effects of climate change as many of us report these disasters.
