This + some manual primes would be absolutely great.
Sweet, thanks Fuji.
Thanks for the review! I still really like this camera, it's just too expensive for me to justify buying as a backup.
Can't have a gallery of award winners without hecklers, I guess.
Beat Traveller: "Hey nice iPhone lens extension. How much does it cost?""Oh, just $42 000."
No, but I imagine the day they do some hipsters will be really pleased. "It's like raw food man, better for your soul!"

Not that impressive compared to other APS-C sensors.
Some of these samples are pretty good. The JPEG colour does appear to be a tad dull for my taste though.
These lenses look really speccy.
Hard stops on the focus ring, please take note Fuji.
A fool and his money eh...
Beat Traveller: Thanks for publishing this. It sounds like a very capable camera.
Too bad the Australian price is an absolute gouge :(
Thanks for the tip. I hate playing the 'which one retailer has this camera for a decent price' game.

Beat Traveller: Still better than the K-01.
I mean aesthetically. By all accounts the K-01 was capable of pretty good image quality, it's just too bad they paid Marc Newson a lot of money to design an yellow brick.
Still better than the K-01.
Not bad Canon, but a rickroll would have been even better.
Like:-The dynamic range, really good for landscapes.-The colour rendition.-The blur falloff, very pleasing. Almost film-like.
Don't like:-Insane noise reduction at high ISO. Makes this camera look like a cheap compact.
But then, there's always RAW.
photo perzon: For the same money and weight and size, the APS-C Fuji X-A1 and the perfect 27mm pancake produce immaculate samples.
No viewfinder and no zoom. Also no 4k. But keep comparing apples to oranges.
This would be a pretty good travel camera. Compared to my XE1 and 18-55 which is my current workhorse on holidays, it has very similar light gathering capability across a similar focal length (slightly wider but slightly shorter at the long end). The tradeoff is resolution, but I could live with that if it meant having a much smaller camera.
peevee1: "It’s very important to maximize quality, especially in still images. I think we do need X-Trans. There’s no low-pass filter and moire is minimized."
Who cares about X-trans, nobody has AA filter with Bayer anymore.
Buy the 28mpix sensor and Samsung processor from the new NX1, and you will be golden, Fuji. Time to shop outside of Japan, the ancient 180nm factories wouldn't do anymore.
Yeah, I dispute that X-trans is a necessity. It's not as dreadful as everyone makes it out to be, but there's no huge advantage over just not using a low-pass filter.
