The Sony HX90V has a fatal flaw, you have to cram your eye into the EVF plastic in order for it to detect the eye and activate the EVF. Many have confirmed this. I have 6 other cameras with auto EVF proximity detector with no problem. I went with Panasonic ZS50.

ChrisH37: Very, very strange write up. People considering an X-T10 with 27mm 2.8 or X100T must be an insanely small niche.

Regardless, I've been using my X-T10 for a few days now and I love it. It really is just a smaller X-T1 without weather sealing, essentially,so I'm not sure why it's had some negativity towards it in the comments.

I use the X-T1 and X-T10 and as long as you don't need weather sealing or use of the bigger lenses the X-T10 does everything just as well. No features have been needlessly disabled to differentiate it, in fact it gains a few tweaks I would love to see on the X-T1 (3 x Auto ISO slots, a much nicer 4 way controller, clickable scroll wheels), so it's not as though it's a lazy release either.

But also the T1 punches like a heavy duty DSLR but is so small that serious photographers charging $ 7000 per wedding want to look serious behind a 7 pound Canon. It is the T1 that has a marketing niche issue. The T10 is the same price as the Sony Rx, the Pana LX, the Canon G7X, the Oly GM5, PL7 but much better IQ. At $ 1299 the T1 competes with cameras that weigh 3 to 5 times more, and there are reasons photographers purchase such cameras. The reason to but an X100T is the same reason to buy a X-T10. The T1 sends confusing messages of waterproof, the world's best EVF, but its competition uses brute heavy size as a psychological sale point for charging professionals.

I have had all X100, X100T, X-T1, X-T10. Loved the X100 colors. Loved the quick X100T. Loved the X-T1 but found it just a tad big for party or dinner social use. The T10 looks smaller because it height is forgiven and its width is much smaller thn the T1. The T1 EVF has a serious medical look to it. You do a double take of that huge round circle where you put your eye. Its something from an optometrists office. It is a small serious camera with a serious look. The T1 is only 2 ounces heavier than the T10, but in the hand the T10 looks coy and cute and social. Fuji will sell many more T10s than T1's. Not only the price and size, but also the fact that the T10 is for casual photo enthusiasts that want to do better than their iPhone.

The T10 evf is great. The T1s is just too great. Really it is soooo great its military. The T10s is like a typical dslr. The T1s is like those in 5 pound dslrs.

EnderW: Here are some tips how to improve autofocus speed.

1) Enable Mechanical Shutter (MS) only. The camera won’t focus between each shot in CL or CH tracking, if ES only (electronic shutter) or MS+ES is enabled.

2) Turn Off Face Detection! If you have Face Detection put to ON, the camera will focus only with CDAF. The faster Phase Detection AF (PDAF) works only if Face Detection is disabled.

3) High Performance Mode ON.

4) Keep you subject in the center: Phase detection pixels are located in the center of the sensor. Keep your subject in the center and PDAF will give you a faster AF.

5) Use all Phase Detection Pixels with Zone AF 5×3: To take advantage of all the phase detection pixels, set you Zone AF box to 5×3 and place it in the center of the frame.

Wow

shademaster: small body doesn't make sense without small lenses.

Plenty of great small primes from Fuji, the 27mm, 35mm, and so on. Zoom with your feet!

Should have a super Lily so our armed forces do not have to drag 60 lbs of gear, super lily does it. If it runs out of power it sits waiting for ISIS flag recognition to detonate.

Apple could sell Aperture for millions instead of letting it die. It is not perfect, but nothing is, and it had a lot of love behind it. Not that Apple needs the millions, no, it does not, but it would be a favor to those users who love it and miss it.

Really if LR offered an easy way to port pictures back and forth but it feels like surgery. Photos has a much better brush than iPhoto. I'm happy with Photos. It has enough for 99% of users. Not that dpreview people are 99%, they are the 1%. How many cameras do you have?

D1N0: Do they still smear detail like in my HX9v?

These are not a $ 5000 Canon DSLR with a $ 15000 400mm 2.8 lens. But they will do.
