Re: Dual Card Slots, Flash Sync Speed > 1/180, Proper 24P Manual Video, More

1. Dual card slots for pros, wedding photogs. Stills to one card, video to the other, or as backup.

2. Proper pro flash, a Canon 600 wireless competitor

3. Flash sync speed has to get pass 1/ least 1/250, and if Fuji really wants to kick ass 1/500 or higher. I do a lot of flash photography, speedlites, and studio strobes.

4. Proper modern video, yes I want video in my still camera, 24P, 120 fps, 240 fps, 1080, 2.5K, high bit rates, head phone plug-in, mic plug-in, RAW out, etc, etc. Enough has been written about this that Fuji should be able to figure it out.

5. The super zoom on Fuji's site for 2015 has to be a Canon 200-400 f/4 IS 1.4 extender competitor, yes really, only for the x mount it will be 1/3 shorter and 1/2 the weight.

Not a complete list, but a start.

Above list has got nothing to do with a mirror / no mirror discussion. They are just general camera features important to you.

I disagree a 200-400mm f4.0 zoom with 1.4 extender would be 1/2 the weight. At these focal lengths APS-C format does not change the front element lens size which will determine the weight. Personally a 100-400 f3.5-f5.6 is what I hope the super tele zoom is - I traded my Nikon 200-400 4.0 for 80-400G 4.5-5.6 largey due to weight / size.
