Not every camera is built to every person's hands, too. Nothing wrong with that.

I have a feeling the buttons and knobs might be a result of weather sealing, though. Might take them a generation or two to hit the sweet spot there.

Exactly right. I had an OMD Em5 for a while and it sounds similar to what I'm reading about X-T1's rear buttons being recessed and not that easy to push. It wasn't a big deal to me on the EM5, but many hated it.

I would not be surprised to see this fixed next year in an X-T2, along with a a few other minor issues people will discover.

Overall it seems Fuji got the X-T1 maybe 98% right. Just a few minor quirks. Not bad.
