stevens37y: It is exacly the same as the Panasonic LX100:
+ red dot sticked
- grip not sticked (probably you can buy it for extra $$$)

extra Lightroom is only $139

I'd love to see the rendering difference between the two.

webber15: Why do people keep knocking leica for the rebadging,,the cams have leica lenses in after all,,so lets all imagine the panny/leica partnership falls through,,,all you leica bashers become happy then?? FFS,,,grow up...

Its reasonably priced and has great specs so who cares as long as it makes a great image.

The Leica version looks much more tasteful then the vanilla Panasonic. Its actually a pretty good deal considering the extras you get.

Paul Liukas: What about focus speed? Is it better than 100s?

According to this guy AF is about the same. If thats true thats disappointing: https://www.wimarys.com/fuji-x100t-xf50-140m-and-xf56mm-apd-at-photokina2014/

abolit: what's the next iteration ? x100u ? Why couldn't this camera be made right in the first place? Why the customers should pay for Fuji's failures? Poorly designed parallax, slow AF, manual focus rotating mechanism which takes forever to achieve the focus in X100? What we see in X100T is not revolution or evolution to pay for , it's just a process of fixing issues in X100. I like Fuji attitude!

As much as I loved my x100s. The slow autofocus was the reason I sold it and bought an XT1 which was a bit faster. I wish the X100T have at least XT1 level AF performance.

Scorpius1: Looks good but with the same crap sensor with bags of shadow noise.. pity canon couldn't use exmor sensors..

It seems like a different sensor. We will know for use once the reviews come it.

maljo@inreach.com: Great AF and 10 fps - what more could a birder/sports photographer want?
Nikon has nothing like this.
Distinguishes the DSLRs from the mirrorless.

@BioVipah I own both the a6000 and the original 7D. Believe me even my 5 year old 7D beats the a6000 in fast action autofocus subject tracking soundly. I can only imagine the 7DII will be better with its 1DX class AF.

Lab D: First I read this and then I saw the new Samsung. I don't know anyone who buys Samsung, but it seems to beat the 7D in every spec.
For example 10 FPS is not exciting when others are offering 11,12 and 15 FPS. "Full HD" video is boring when other shoot 4K.
I just hope the 7D does use the same technology in this new sensor as found in the Rebel T2i.

The Samsung looks interesting but we still have to see its action tracking AF abilities in the reviews. Based on my experience on the 5D Mark III and 1DX the 7D2 should have excellent subject tracking.

Under The Sun: I held my purchase of the GH4 hoping that the EM1 would get 4k. Ah well GH4 it is.

Imagine a camera with the Olympus 5 Axis. Good bye a large chunk of the DSLR rigging industry.

caravan: I own the X100 and this update looks interesting.The absence of gimmicks,articulating lcd,zoom lens,is most welcome.

Articulating screens are very useful for odd angle shots not gimmicky at all. Its actually better for the older folks to get tilting screens, its good for their back, no more lying down on the dirt when going for a low angle shot.

My memory might have failed me but I recall in his preview of the x100t, Zack said that responsiveness wise moving from the S to the T is like the camera of the iPhone 3 to the iPhone 5. Jez I hope he's right, the glacial autofocus of my S is the main reason I sold it.

Under The Sun: Sounds like a good action camera. If I needed a sports camera now I would consider this. I only hope this one is using a new sensor because I'm totally underwhelmed by the other specs.

Also do we get spot metering that follows the AF point?

I'm not sure if it is the best AF money can buy but the AF is indeed this camera's bright shining point. its essentially a mini 1DX. If the sensor is actually updated for cleaner low light and better dynamic range its a winner.

l_d_allan: Reaction from this stills 'tog:

Maybe video enthusiasts aren't underwhelmed?

Probably underwhelmed as well with all the 4K capable cameras out in the market.

jondh: I want x-pro2 :(

I'm guessing they're going to milk their current flagship the XT-1 before moving on to the Xpro2.

Not that I'm expecting much but I wonder how much improved the video quality is for this camera.
