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.

This wouldn't bother me and I doubt it would many users. Some, yes, but I would guess a minority.

2. Included hot shoe flash looks hideous.


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

It is pretty good and getting better e.g. Zeiss just announced a 50mm macro. I think there's enough to keep me going.

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

This I don't understand. On Amazon the EM1 kit is £1950. Calumet photo just offered me a pre-release deal on the XT-1 with 18-55mm lens for just £1399 with £99 of freebies thrown in.

Personally I love the retro styling and I like having dials rather than menus for all the basic functions.

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.

Agreed, but early reviews look very positive.

I love the EM-5 but I am open-minded if a better alternative comes along and for me I think it may have. You seem to be trying to find fault but none of your concerns bother me at all.

Good so you can buy it, test it, and upload some photos!
