Guys

Enjoyed the Review/Preview
But one item I found curious.
This is a commercial web site, reviewing a named product.
So, why, in the interview at the end was there a most distracting piece of black tape over the logo of the laptop (A MacBook I presume) used to present the images?

The Squire: What? No 4K? At that price!?

To clarify - do you mean 'Two-Stage' shutter button as in 'real' camera?

Volume up/down as well as earpiece volume controls can be used as shutter release.
Not 'Dedicated' - but, dedicated enough for me :-)

Brian OReilly: Pardon?
"Only Supports D7000 and later DSLR"

This is a really underhand way of saying that
According to the timeline on this page:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Template:Nikon_DSLR_cameras

That means it does not support:
D3
D300
D200
All D2 variants

This is really poor
So - to process Nikon NEF files with Nikon Capture NX2 I will need to keep 2 different versions of the SW on a machine
Same applies with Nikon Camera Control Pro2

But, I do not believe you can have 2 different versions of the SW on the same machine - so you need to have 2 different startup disks.

So much for using Nikon products and the longevity of the NEF format moving into the future
Do we need to keep legacy hardware and operating systems and Nikon SW so we can access our images?

Sorry for the rant - but this is really disappointing
Brian

In which case - I stand corrected :-)

Frank_NZ: I thought this idea was already being developed through crowdfunding. Maybe its the same individuals. If not there could be one helluva legal battle coming up.

Pardon?
Can you elaborate perhaps with an example?

Fellow X100 users

If you are as happy as I ma that Fuji have released new firmware for an 'obsolete' camera - then let them know. Perhaps, positive feedback might encourage Fuji to continue to offer such excellent service on other models in the future.
Amazingly - they actually have a web page where you can contact them at head office in Japan.
I suggest we all do so, in order that they know that their excellent customer care is appreciated.

Ken Aisin: The price is absolutely right. I'm pre-ordering this.

Ahem...
You say - "a 24mm lens actually was a 24mm"

I say - "a 24mm lens is always a 24mm lens"

Brian :-)
