I find the retro dials very appealing, but the twin dials on my DSLR (and recent film SLRs before them) to be much more practical for controlling the camera while looking through the VF. So while the Df may be the dentists camera, the Fuji is still something of a hipster camera

BTW, I admit I haven't looked carefully at the new Fuji - for all I know, it may have twin dials as well ... though then you get into the ugly situation where the dialed in aperture on the lens doesn't accurately show the setting ... it's tough to go "hybrid". Electronic aperture and camera control works well; aperture control via lens works well; trying to do both in the same system gets kludgy.

As you say I think this is give and take, as I understand it the Fuji has wheels but these wheels can't ever override the dials and are for narrowing down shutter speed and other options.

Personally my view is that if your "confused" by the shutter speed dial not being active when in aperture priority with the Df you probably don't need a camera like the Df. Its a situation easily avoided simply by shooting the camera in manual or shutter priority modes.
