Considering the outrageous cost of an EVF, it would have been better to group those with built-in EVFs and those without. Users generally fall into two groups, those that can't do without an EVF and those quite happy not to have one.

Summit_pg: Do something sooner than later Fuji. This kind of garbage coming out after the whole aperture blade issue with the X100 is making Fuji products look like junk. Love the X10; hate the baggage it brings with it. Signed: A disappointed X10 owner.

I think the best outcome is that it is some sort of flare reduction and object enhancer in the processing engine that's gone wrong, and that Fuji will just turn it off in the next firmware. The worst case is they'll force up the ISO and DR in the auto modes.

Ashley Pomeroy: Well, that's that. I took my X10 and smashed it on the ground, and spat on it - and then stamped on the bits. And then I took the box and SET FIRE TO IT. And then I cut marks in my arm because I was so upset. Life is basically not worth living any more, and I hope the people of Fuji who WRONGED THE WORLD like this suffer for bringing such sadness to the world.

In fact I've half a mind to go to Japan and erect a large screen around Mount Fuji, because I'm sure the people who live in the surrounding countryside don't want to be reminded of this... this perversion of all that is good. If you have an X10, please mail it to me so that I can smash it for you.

I don't think that's wot Fuji means by being 'within tolerance limits'. but nice try.

Zvonimir Tosic: There are no news like the bad news.

DPR = Digicam Problems and Rants

A very quick scope over the forums:

* Canon 1D MkIII — servo AF and stripes on the picture problem
* Canon 7D — ghosting problem
* Fujifilm X10 — white discs problem
* Fujifilm X100 — sticky blades problem
* Pentax K5 — spotty sensor problem
* Pentax K7 — sensor blur problem
* Leica M8 — IR filter problem
* Leica M9 — too expensive problem
* NikonD5000 — power system problems
* Nikon D60, "also inherits the problems of the earlier D40x"
* Sigma SD9 — blooming highlights problem
* Sigma DP1 — colour blotches problem
* CCD sensor problems across dozens and dozens of cameras:
http://www.imaging-resource.com/badccds.html
* Olympus E-P2 — "patches over E-P1 problems and jacks up the price".
* Olympus E-P3 — "basically repacked E-P2 with same m4/3 problems".

Your camera doesn't have any problems?
Well, then, there must be some problem with *you*.

"Leica M9 — too expensive problem"
haha - i love it.

DaveOl: I'm glad to see they're coming out with a better IQ, smaller and cheaper lens than the original 14-45mm lens.

DaveO

I don't think it's cheaper than the original 14-45. It's just that you can't find many 14-45 these days.
And I don't know if the IQ really is better.
