Why I'm dubious about the X-T1

It's Fuji's birthday coming up (or something) and the X-T1 is a one off special to mark the occasion (look, it's something similar to what we made xx years ago) and after that it's back to normal with XE and XPro modern styling. Don't hold off buying it though, it could become a design classic and have rarity value.

I think they'll carry all three designs, personally. X-T1 style, X-E style and X-M style. That covers "pro", "enthusiast", and "entry level" pretty well.

I'm not so sure the X-Pro series will continue, at least not without getting larger. The OVF is largely useless for most of the lenses released after the first three primes, and on top of that, Fuji might not make much money on the design.
