Hasselblad has always claimed they listen to their customer's feedback, however it seems that they think that they understand what they thought that we said, but I'm not sure that what they heard is what we meant.
radissimo: The main dealbreaker for me is that uncomfortable on/off switch, believe or not that was the reason why I sold my E-M5 :-(
It's really an off/on switch which is probably why you couldn't handle it.
CFBMD: Ok... I'm going to be the odd ball out. I was so excited to order the Fujifilm X-T1.... It has been a while since I had been so excited about a camera. Last time I felt this way I ordered the Nikon D2x the day it was available and never looked back. As a matter of fact that and my iPhone are my only cameras. Now many years later my old Faithful D2x keeps on working but outdated so I bought the X-T1. I rushed out to the UPS dispatch since I missed the truck. Got my Fujifilm X-T1 and held it. The fist thing my 8yo daughter said was "ooh, it's so little" Not a good way to start. Feels solid, well built....but petite. Don't know how I feel about that. Also, I'm having a hard time adjusting/accepting the EVF. My biggest dilemma now... to return it or not? I just cant believe I lost seep over this...for crying out loud... I am an OBGYN and used to stressful situations every day....why is this stressing me OUT!
For someone coming from a D2x, I guess I would have waited and gone with the new Lumix GH4. The Fuji is an outstanding camera and I have tried several of their models myself but ended up returning all of them due to various issues. For me, the Fuji menus and buttons were just too wonky. To each his own but for me, Panasonic and Olympus are hard to beat right now. Over the past several years I sold off all of my Nikon and Canon gear and put the money into a complete collection of Panasonic and M.Zuiko glass. If fact I just found out that my new Leica DG Nocticron 42.5mm shipped from Adorama today (price was a big ouch!).
LFLee: I have an explanation why north American mirrorless market is weak: all those burgers make our hand so fat we can't press one button on mirrorless without touching other buttons... the camera is too small for our fat fingers and hands.
No mystery at all. The USA is currently around 26th in literacy and is fast becoming a population of TV watching, smartphone addicted, fast food eating, video game playing, WalMart shoppers. Clear-headed and critical thinking is rapidly becoming a scarce resource.
Who the hell cut their hair? I'll never be able to look at my Nikon the same anymore.
The only way they could say less would be to talk longer.
DonSantos: wow. worst design I've seen in a long time.
Thanks for that. We all value your taste and acutely perceptive evaluative ability. I'd love to see a camera that you designed which would probably look like a cross between a Kodak Instamatic and a Polaroid Pronto.
Interesting design and features. Nice to see some out-of-the-matrix thinking. Nikon and Canon; helllooo . . .
Jogger: Although there is a lot of hype on this forum for this camera, the fact is that m43 is a non-player in the cine market. Others such as Sony and Canon have long released dedicated S35 and FF cine cameras (C100, FS700, F55, F65, etc). This market is dominated by S35 cameras. Whereas, the only m43 cine camera, the Pana AG100 never took off. The m43 mount BMP is even more of a compromise, and after the hype, its fading away.
So the reason you dont see these specs on Sony/Canons is that they dont need to... they are already catering to this market, but, you wont see the F55, F5, etc mentioned on here.
I think that Jogger has LOD (Language Obfuscation Disorder) which is easily identified by those who excessively use the term "non-player". The term essentially means nothing but has the effect of amplifying the ego of the afflicted which feeds their superiority complex.
audijam: okay they are going to need a new CEO very soon...
I hear that Steve Ballmer is available.
I would have liked to see a digital version of the Hasselblad 501C/M with a large sensor and nice big EVF right on the top like the good old days.
D 503: I would have liked to have seen some horses in motion. If it can do horses it should sell.
I'd love to see a small herd of turtles in motion as well.
Valiant Thor: Most of the public thrive on perversion and violence and this is what sells. I don't own or watch TV for this reason. Just turn on the news or network "programming" any day, any time and you will be fed a stream of police, murder, CSI, law shows (conflict), medical tragedies, hypnotic violence, and "comedies" which feature distorted canned laughter, sexual innuendos every one to two minutes and disgusting behavior that should insult the intelligence of anyone with an IQ over room temperature.
Mr. McCullin chose to provide what sells as there is a much greater market for images of blood and guts (just look at the top award winning photos) by feeding the puppet masters agenda of control, anger, violence and stress through PROBLEM-REACTION-SOLUTION psychological tactics.
You've just proven my point perfectly. And, it's very easy to identify the low IQ, TV watching, in-the-matrix posters by their habit of ending their posts with winky-smiley keyboard characters which give them the delusional feeling that they're really on to something that they believe others are missing.
Certainly not anyone who clicked the Like button on the Wass reply.
You clearly think you have all the answers which you clearly do not.

Why does Zeiss come up with strange lens names that are hard to pronounce?
Matt1645f4: Can we start talking about a cameras ability to take still images, rather than any inability or poor video mode? This Camera screams out its Photographic ability, So stop bitching and moaning about video!!
We can talk about both actually. Hybrid photography is becoming huge and there's no reason this camera can't up the video specs a bit just like the GH3 and GM1 and the upcoming GH4 (4K). Ansel Adams doesn't work here anymore, but if he did I bet he would be using the tools of the day including some video.
digiart: Nikon should be taking notes... This seems to be a gem of a camera. The right mix of analog and digital. Retro style camera done right.
Canon should be taking some copious notes as well.
The X-T1 looked good and I pre-ordered on Amazon, but then cancelled when I saw that the GH4 would be announced soon. Since I already have some Lumix and M.Zuiko lenses, the GH4 is the best way to go for me. But wow, the X-T1 looks to be an outstanding camera.
