Jonathan F/2: Fuji seems to be a wannabe Olympus and Panasonic. Seems like Fuji just keeps copying all the M43 lenses.

could it be that all photographers regardlless of lensmount require similar lenses. just a thought.

Sony DON´T have a single rangefinder camera.

Done! end of the fight.

(Sony does another type of cameras, so stop comparing xpro with what? )
In the end, at least you should compare Xpro with a Leica.

have to agree with richard, the user expierence that comes with a true rangefinder is not present in fujis. hope it will be one day, but for now a leica m is superior for i.e. manual focus handling in my experience.

DenWil: A "flagship" 24MP crop 35mm ...from the company which stepped up and created a series of medium format rangefinders...why still messing with a crop sensor?

Why no digitally repurposed GW 645? That would have been forward thinking rather than rehashing an old 35mm design for aging hobbyists.

be patient the medium format is comig... ;-)

I have to agree - Fuji has no rangefinders by definition. It has nothing to do with focus by wire. It would involve optical focusing by triangulation and for this purpose a rangefinder camera would have 2 "viewfinders" and often also a 3rd "window" for lightgathering purposes - to make the view brighter so to speak. The only digital rangefinders I know of are Leicas and Epson R-D1. With Fuji we only have electronic verification of focus - be it with a green light in the optical viewfinder or through EVF verification. When working with manual focus this makes a huge difference.

Raist3d: Is the CIPA with OVF or EVF? IF it's with OVF that's pretty low.

Richard - I fully agree that number on paper is disappointing. Question stil remains what real life experience will be.

read some reviews - pre-production users were getting 800 shots out of the battery. I've had the same experience with my X-T1 - it has more mileage in it then CIPA attributes it with.

Pandimonium: This article was probably supposed to be published december 2016 since the RX1 RII is not available yet. http://www.sony.jp/cyber-shot/info2/20151216.html

there was a very limited amount in the first batch (at least in my country) - but that's not the same as not available ;-)

Greg Gebhardt: I thought that a cellular modem was going to be offered for the Surface Pro 4

"cellular modem"? you mean a sim card module and lte antenna? the surface 3 is still the only one in the lineup to offer this. it would open up new distribution channels for sure, but also tie people into new expensive carrier agreements. thethering is still the better option in my opinion.

I'm mystified. This is supposed to compete with iPad somehow?

<shakes head>

I'd be surprised if it survived for a year. It's not even solid state! It has moving parts INSIDE! FANS! lolol

yes some devices have fans inside other devices just clueless fans everywhere. i prefer the first kind. but I know that is my opinion,

Ayoh: Again a single USB port? and $2700? For that kind of money I would much prefer a small, business line HP or Lenovo ultrabook which is user serviceable, upgradable, and has on-site 3 year warranty.

check out the Surface Book - the pro is nice, but I agree. These things matter.
