We don't care about Nikon and Canon in this forum.

But we care about Fuji.

Only because it has a very fast AF, fast shutter response,

the best EVF in a mirrorless, and is a direct competitor with the NEX-7 successor.

And so hopefully will put pressure on Sony to improve the A7r as well.

So, let us be consistent.

Remember, a7/7r are not 1", m43 or even APSc sensor cameras.

I gave points to Fuji on the EVF, probably the most significant piece in the package. The AF and shutter lag performance remains a question mark. Improvement? Sure. But remember, the numbers being quoted are better than those for likes of Canon 1Dx. That is yet to be proven.

And no, the 8 fps shot of relatively slow movement only hints at good tracking and AF speed, not of the incredible numbers being marketed. Some of the fastest shutter response cameras:
Canon 5D III: 0.061 (measured)
Sony a77: 0.053 (measured)
Nikon D4: 0.043 (measured)
Canon 1Dx: 0.039 (measured)
Sony NEX-7: 0.022 (measured)

Fuji's claim with X-T1: 0.005s (hint: 8x faster than D4/1Dx)? Likewise, where does 0.008s AF lag come from? That would be mind boggingly faster than any camera out there.

With that kind of claimed performance, either something is amiss/misquoted or The Fuji would be outperforming pro DSLRs. I find the former to be more credible.
