Rod McD: Thanks for this - I'm still waiting to see an XT1 in the hand in Australia......
I suspect you're making a bit much of the issue of the locking button on the ISO dial. I change ISO when the light intensity changes (eg going form indoors to outside and vice versa) or if I make a lens change to a very different FL (eg to bump up shutter speed for a telephoto). It's just not that hard, and I doubt that it's so important from shot to shot when the camera is actually up to your eye. How long does it take - one second, perhaps two? Anyone who so desperately needs that second to grab a shot should have set their camera to an appropriate ISO far earlier. Anything's better than accidental changes.
And as for the inconvenience of gloves... Show me one camera that excels with gloves on. There aren't any. They're all woeful. It's just part of the digital age that they require dexterity to use all functions. This is hardly a fault unique to this camera.
It has 3.
This really does look like a great phone. All of the latest and greatest.
Gotta wonder if the screen is IPS or not though.
vscd: I like Fuji, but too many updates are no sign of productivity, but more a sign of banana-software, riping at the customer.
I do think they need to think about of some of the stuff before they release cameras.
They did Velvia pretty dang well. Everything else is off. Astia being the most off.
Wow...the 18-135 is 3.5-4.8! I thought it was 3.5-5.6. Cool stuff. I bet that is going to be one of the fastest focusing lenses out for fuji.
Well the 12-40mm 2.8 oly is all plastic....thin little sheet of metal on the outside.
Combatmedic870: Does it have a lens cap or is it like the other g series cameras??
Very good. I havent seen a pic with it turned off yet.

pacnwhobbyist: Does that lens hood come with the camera?
HomoSapiensWannaBe: Will be interesting to compare with the Sony RX-10.
I just looked on camera size.com and compared. The rx10 is considerably larger vs the mk2.
That would be a REALLY hard choice. It would kinda be up to if you wanted to shoot video or not.Also the rx10 have really fast AF. Unknown on this camera.
I think the Fuji XQ1 beats this out. 1/2 stop faster on the long end, a larger sensor and faster focusing same size for only $50 more.
Then again the panasonic gm1 makes both cameras obsolete.
stern: travel companion? why would i choose an ILC for travel? My travel camera is the pentax mx-1. compact, rugged plus incredible IQ. IMHO IQ of the mx-1 is on par or better than the Sony RX, which is probably due to the mx's better lens (sharp!). travel = compact.
The mx1 is a xz2, just not as good. Same lens....
nerd2: I like fuji system a lot, without their price tag. Why should them so expensive compared to sony, samsung or panasonic offerings?
Panasonic 42.5mm 1.2 @$1600 vs fuji 56mm 1.2 1000.
Seems like there prices are fine.
coudet: Refresh rate, dpreview?
Even in low light.
ZhanMInG12: Hmmm...I'm not particularly impressed by the 0.77x EVF. After using EVILs for three years, I have found that larger viewfinder magnifications rates make it more difficult to get a correct framing, since one's eyes are strained when looking at them...I see that the magnification rate is selectable, but won't that be throwing away pixels on the EVF's OLED?
8fps sounds good, but Fuji needs much faster and longer teles if they want to win over the birding or sports crowd...
I dont think thats the crowd they are going for....most of there lenses are pretty fast.
Heaven is for real: Not a full frame so not interested….
Then buy an A7.
Jun2: will XE2 be discounted soon ?
Mine! Its beautiful!
