To me the X-T1 looks ergonomically superior to all the other Fuji mirrorless cameras for much the same reason that SLR's replaced rangefinders. The EVF is in the centre of the camera with controls on both sides, the ISO settings are on top as well and below 2 of the settings knobs are additional settings.

It looks symmetrical, balanced and yet compact.

The X-T1 looks likes the most desirable X camera yet and possibly the most desirable mirrorless so far.

This is the FM camera we Nikon shooters were dreaming of before the DF1 bloatmaster was released.

Now if only Fuji did a superzoom 18-200 lens, bigger zooms will suite this camera.

once you get past the "hey is that a Leica?" novelty factor you soon find that the placement of the EVF on the left corner offers no advantages over the OVF/OVF being directly above and behind the lens as is found on 99% of all cameras, Fuji made a wise move with their lookie-likely Leica X100 and X-Pro1, now that they have a user base they have released a camera that the other 99% of the camera buying public might want while still offering that retro look.
