Great, that'll save you taking a step closer...
Do they come in Nikon F mount?
51 megapixels? whimper....
instamatic: Insertable cartridges? Could it be that this camera will have replaceable sensor modules? Perhaps user-replaceable? That would be super nice and quite innovative.
Aw, don't spoil it!
Mine's on order!
Johannes Zander: Canon and Nikon in one bag! Is that legal?
Reading comments on here, I'm surprised they don't explode when they come into contact with each other....
People don't look perfect close up? Hold the front page!
50mp, is that enough for Facebook?
backayonder: Can someone please summarise these 1392 posts as I think I need to buy this camera
It's good, treat yourself. An XE 2 with a decent viewfinder, there is nothing not to like.
I think camera manufacturers have got too used to releasing a new camera every two years and having people get excited enough about it to buy one.
We aren't so easily fooled anymore, they all have more than enough pixels, the picture quality is uniformly brilliant, video is as good as you'll get from a non-camcorder.
There just isn't anything to tempt the serious photographer each year to make him buy the new model, look at Nikons trivial updates to the 3xxx and 5xxx lines. These new cameras are identical to the ones before apart from the addition of wi-fi which I doubt anyone ever uses beyond seeing if the gimmick actually works.
Face it, they've had it easy when everyone still believed that new meant better but now we all know it doesn't they should go back to making cameras that last, my D90 is falling apart already and it's only four years old! Whereas my Spotmatic works fine and was bought in 1974.
Wow, I'd have thought the opposite would be the case with all the great cameras on the market!
We'd better get out there and spend some cash if we want to see an XT-2 or a D400. No point just talking about them.....
What no OVF?
Looks lovely, just what I need, big sensor, small body, perfect lens range and bound to have good IQ. Form an orderly queue behind me.
I guess you'd have to hold one to see how it feels in the hand. I always thought the Sony NEX models looked completely unergonomic but they are surprisingly comfortable. Maybe Sigma have dared to try something that feels better than it looks?
Look forward to what the new sensor can do. Companies should keep reaching for improvement rather than just dishing up the same camera with more pixels or slightly better button placement like some companies do....
justmeMN: When the original G1 X was released, many people complained that it was not as compact as it should be, because of the OVF. Many people also complained that the OFV was so bad that it was worthless. Canon responded by removing the OVF, to make it more compact.

LOL, now listen to all the whiners!
God, Sony make the ugliest cameras!
photobeans: 4K is coming fast and furious. 4K TV for $1,000 is coming out this year. But i've got to wonder if 8K is gonna hit just as hard in 2 years and obsolete 4k quickly.
If only programme quality evolved at the same rate.
Hugo808: I was going to buy one of these but I feel I'm reading yesterdays news already.
Makes me wary about buying a XT-1 in case the XT-2 comes out before I've handed over my credit details.
I'd hate to own a camera shop, they are giving away last months cameras at a loss.
They are if they can't sell them!
I used to work in a camera shop and I know the sort of tiny profits they make on camera bodies. My local shop has a stack of XE-1's at rock bottom prices and now the XE-2 will join them in the "never sell" bin.
