km25: The images to me a bit noisey. It low is performance is middle of the road. It would be nice if they offered a nice low light model. But the big thing is lens. they need a road map bad.
A lens road map with a mostly zooms is either weak and/or new. They need some sharp fast primes. But if you want a high MP APS camera, the camera is a very good choice.
Believe what ever you want, I own a Leica M7 and have three Leica lens. One of them is the 90mm F/2.0 APO, one of the sharpest. Fuji qaulity in optics and construction are right up there.Fuji has been making lens for decades. They have made medium format lens and view camera lens. They make lens for nes digital Hassi not CZ.
The Fuji is 16MP. Like the Nikon Df. Fuji can go to ISO 3500. Samsung makes some nice glass, all I can say is Fujion 56mm F1.2.The lower the MPs the larger the pixles, higher ISO. Now the Fuji would be in the same boat with MPs, but they already have a low light camera. Want Samsung needs is a lower MP version of the NX1 for low light and some nice fast primes. As far as a high IQ camera, with some very good lens, they have it. What I am saying is not negative. Look at Fujion reviews around the web. All of the Fujion very good, most are excellent, ones like the 56mm is outstanding. Look at the test for the XT-1, one of the plus is low light. Fujion is on the level of CZ and Lecia.
Look at the Fuji road map. It took them a short period of time to create it, an 85mm F1.4 is 130mm lens in APS-C, a little long for say protrait use. I look at the noise, compared to the Fuji. Fuji wins hands down. My point is the need a road map of lens and NX2 with a lower MP sensor for low light. Other wise I think it is a fine camera. If youwant a high MP APS-C, this would be good choice.
Think of all the ways that camera companies have been trying to by pass the lonely cable release. Is it because it is too heavy to drag around. Maybe cause of how complex it's usage is. Thank God in heaven that now the hard work of triping the sutter moves closer to auto shutters, shutters that known when it is a good image and the camera takes the picture on it's own. Remotes have there place. This just having the camera peel you a grape.

It looks like a nice camera. Do not make umpteen new versions of the camera. Make lens or just roll over and die. Lens, look at Sony. See why Fujiflim has a devought following....lens.
..but you must remember this, sapphire maybe a bliss, but scratchs also maybe in the coatings...as time goes by. Also what opitcal effects from this new what ever they a using. I think I wait and see, by the by my fliters last a long long time as it is.
X40 with improved processor, it is coming in the X-pro 2/XT-2. It will be able to handle 4k movies and/or better over all quialty. The only thing holding all this back is why just go to XZ 100, an X100T with the new processor and a zoom lens. Or make both. A one inch and a zoom on the X100T. Just think 4K in a Fuji!
A good bag is well made and easy to use, these bags seem to fit the bill.
Just wish we would be given a better time table till new sensor. I have been using X-Trans since the early X-Pro 1. Lens are great nd frimware has been great also, just wish we all had a better idea about new sensor.
Under controled conditions 40MP, OK. Nose control good in JPEG, look at RAW, it is OK. Getting more out of 4/3 then is there is nice for those who shot with it. If I wanted real high MPs, a larger sensor would be a better answer, but now, not the only.
This is an intresting camera, you would think Leica would have thought it up.
It depends on what the finished product looks like and how much is this doggy in the window? Other wise, looks interesting. Where is that Sony guy yo tell me that they make the sensor.
km25: If this is a landscape camera, at fity big ones. Canons needs to up grade most of their wides, like the 20mm F2.8, it was not even a great lens twenty years ago. I say this with respect for the a fine camera company.
The 28, F1.8. Is an OK lens at best. The 35 f2.0 IS is a major improvement. The rest of the Canon lens are good. But Sigma looks like they are cleaning house, Nikon now has a line up of F1.8s. And Nikon also had their 20mm F2.8, it does keep dust out of camera.Nikon and Canon have been lazzy about their short primes and short teles. Even their 85F1.2 is an old lens. Nikon is better, but not by much. If you super sharp, go Sigma or CZ.

I was going to no 4k to keep down cost, then I saw the price. But then again it looks to be a still camera, the low MP can do 4k. I want to how it controls noise. If good, Canon... is back.
All the Fan Boys will be saying in the Forums, next year will come out with something just like/eqaul to it. You fill in blanks. Be happy take pictures. Oh and just think have way across the the Milky Way, someone or thing may just be peering back at us, only the have more Giga pixels and have less noise in low light. And the color is just better. HEE HEEE.
It looks like a print from the 19th century. That is said in a good way.
Yes, the eye of the beholder. Buy and use what you want. None of the cameras out now are unusable or plain bad. Get what you need and shoot pitures.
Bottom line, Nikon will fix it and stands behind their product. Give'em that.
