I'm just shocked is all

A camera that is as beautiful to look at, and in some ways has some genius in it's design can be so awful in other areas. It's not like Fuji started making cameras yesterday, they have plenty of experience here.

Unforgiveable.

I'm a glass is half full kind of guy, but this issue is a total deal breaker for landscapers or anyone that relies on a histogram for exposure. Raw can save some of the inaccuracy, but not enough for me to want to rely on it.

How this can get past a field tester is another question of mine.

I just love the build, and the OVF. The noise is well controlled, the colors are fantastic in "normal" lighting, ... I mean so much to love about the camera but too many things that are on the opposite end of the spectrum.

Fuji almost had a total winner here, but it fails imho.
