What do you think of the new X-Fuji? Looks very tempting to me. Was getting ready to buy the EM1 kit, now still waiting for the final specs and test of this new X-trans miracle. Missing any TTLW-flash is not good, EVF and IQ and AF look superb.

And: no I'm not trying to troll here. Have some nice MFT's from Oly already.

Kind regards Perry

My thoughts:

1. A great still camera, but with useless video mode, aka 17 minutes time limit.

2. Included hot shoe flash looks hideous.

3. The X System doesn't have as complete lens as M43 System.

4. Kit pricing is on the high side. I am not an extreme retro styling fan.

5. Will wait for actual user reviews and a few firmware updates to see where Fujifilm is going to do with the body and lens.

I'd never try to get you to switch, but #4 should be put into context, as the Fuji kit lens is an incredible lens. Better than any kit lens I've used.

Fuji lens pricing is high though, agreed. The quality is superb, but it's superb in M43 too. The lens I've always admired in M43 are the 45mm (less than 400$!), 20mm Panny, and the new 25mm Oly (nifty fifty pancake) should be excellent too.
