New Fuji has a titanium (skin?) body. Nice to see that coming back from the SLR days. Yes, I know. The Fuji costs more. Quality instead of cost-cutting usually does.


I don't use zooms, only Primes. And if I did, I'm not interested in anything long as what you're talking about. I'm sure that the 100-400 could easily take that same image. In fact, Olympus Needs IBIS just to compete with other sensors -including 1" sensors.

Only if the user could hand hold the 100-400 with the 2XTC at 2 stops lower than the 5 stop improvement Fuji indicates for the lens.  Even then it would not be as sharp.  Now if Fuji had a 400mm equivalent to their 200mm f2 used with a 2XTC and you used it on the Fuji X-H1 with IBIS+OIS, then you could probably take the same image.
