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!
That rabbit would have bit me!!! Great pics.
Marathonianbull: But will it perform better than the rest of the X family with M-Mount lenses?
Who cares. You have fuji lenses.
tinternaut: Looks a tad "Me too," but that generally isn't a problem in the camera business.
Me too compared to what? Their Own x100?
I think these cameras are over rated. The concept is good. They will be great for manual focus lens users.
So where is the fuji XE-2 review?!?!?
Combatmedic870: In the first paragraph you put 1.2 fx prime. I'm assuming it should be 1.8 prime.
Of coarse. Easy mistake given there were 2 F1.2 lenses released. I actually didn't even know if I was correct! Lol

tkbslc: "A highly reliable metal mount is durable enough for repeated mounting of the lens."
I should hope so!! Every other lens in the history of changeable lenses has been durable enough for repeated mounting.
I dont have one, thank you though.
Yeah, i am hating on this lens though. The cost is completely unreasonable. $1199 fine.....1599 no.
