Checking the facts - Leica in fact sells a M10 without a display, the M10D. While you might feel instant review is positive - maybe even necessary - that does not mean someone else does. Looking at the display means taking ones eye off the scene and paying attention to the camera instead of capturing a vision. No thank you. I can look at them later.

I didn't know about the M10. But it appears that they went the whole hog, and gave a smartphone app to change camera settings. And this does validate my point, there is not much discussion about the (complete) lack of a screen.

Nowhere have I said that others must also review their photographs "instantly". I merely mentioned that it is something that a majority of photographers tend to do, and that our attitude towards 'chimping' w.r.t. the X-Pro3 is mainly because of Fujifilm marketing.

Not true. The desirability of chimping has long been debated on this Forum -- long before the X-Pro3 was even a gleam in its designer's eye. Fujifilm marketing was a response.

This blinding fan-boiishness is a bit too much.

No more blind fan-boyishness than blind pan-boyishness on this thread.
