We could go over to the Fuji site and tell Fuji owners their cameras look like something designed and built in a Leningrad tank factory. (Your baby is ugly.)

Some of their cameras are indeed unsophisticated and unnecessarily unattractive.

Not all, but some.

That everything Fuji does was copied from another camera company.

That is mostly true; they do copy a lot from Leica, Contax and old Pentax cameras.

That would be disrespectful to Fuji when they are making a great system.

No, truth is good; Fuji can only benefit if they hear honest opinions. Flattering them won't help anybody.

Sort of cameraphilia. Na. Let's not be one of them.

It is not cameraphilia; it is criticism about industrial design that is not very well done. However, companies that Fujifilm copies old concepts from, say Leica and Pentax, have vastly more sophisticated designs today. They actually are masters of industrial photographic design. Fuji isn't. Yet.
