We need the Genie missles back.

Michel Savage: I am cruelly disappointed. Been waiting day after day for these to come out. Even sold my Fuji A2 for that. Big bad blow against Nikon and its reputation: the DL disaster will always remain in everybody's mind, reminding us that, well, if you buy a Nikon product, Nikon may not honor its warranties because it may not remain in existence. Very sad. We must now turn to Canon or hesitantly, Sony. Thank you Nikon, the D7100 was a great camera, and my last Nikon ever. Someone at Nikon headquarters just phocked up.

Cancelled my pre-order in early December and got an Olympus Pen-F instead. Having a blast.

Smack53: This is kind of a personal article as I took up photography as a hobby to ease the pain of cancer 7 years ago. There were many days that I just wanted to give up, but I would get out there and do a little more each time and go a little further to force myself to get to out the way places for a photo. My little Canon PowerShot A510 was the way I started out, but as I started to get more into the hobby, I wanted something a little better to work with, so my family blessed me with a Canon PowerShot G12. I learned an awful lot about manual controls on that camera, and it gave me more excitement about the days ahead, and brought back some hope that all would be alright. Ultimately, I survived and am in remarkable health due to a hobby that forced me to keep moving and stay focused on the brighter side of life than the hell I was going through. Many thanks to Lisa Bettany for allowing us to see her incredible journey as an inspiration to us all!

Love this.

Delightful and inspiring. I'm a better photographer because of you. You go, girl.

GreatOceanSoftware: 10 years from now: "Remember the days when we used to mechanically shift the sensor? Ha! Why didn't we just spend our energy developing the cuz (probably quantum dot or some such) sensor?"

Silly autocorrect. I meant XYZ sensor.

Everyone is worried that someone else is going to get rich in some tangential way based on their work. Please stop with the paranoia and litigation.

This long time Nikon SLR/DSLR professional photographer is now Fuji X-T1 and I'm quite satisfied. As long as image quality, build quality and all other ergonomics are good, I'll remain mirrorless indefinitely.

On article Fujifilm X-T1 Review (657 comments in total)

I've had the X-T1 for a couple of months now and just want to say kudos to Fuji. This is the first camera in decades that's inspired me to get out and take photos. I think it's the manual controls that I've been missing. I've been slowly lulled away to programmable buttons and touch screens, all the while not realizing I really missed the feel of my Olympus OM 35mm cameras of the 70's. Thanks to Fuji, it's great to be back.

l_d_allan: Maybe I'm easily impressed?

But I'm IMPRESSED ... by the rocket technology (less so with the drone + camera, but I WANT ONE).

I'm with you, Alan. Where's the "Notify me when in stock" button?

Why is everyone surprised? I see this as a digital Minox. Very niche. I wouldn't run out and buy it, but I applaud bringing back lots of knobs with direct access to important functions. Wish more manufacturers would get away from touch screens and menus and bring back the knurly knobs!
