One lens, then a 24-70 equivalent.
One focal length, difficult to chose between 35mm and 50mm.

Teasing annoys the f out of me. It probably has the opposite effect of that which was desired.

sh10453: It's not all about security. There is an alternative explanation, as the Washington Post put it.
When our airlines can't compete, they go whining and crying at Trump's lap for protection:

What I don't get is that surely all passengers go through the same security at the source airport so which airline they fly is irrelevant, or am I wrong? I generally don't fly on US airlines unless I have no choice.

NickyB66: Nice camera, Fuji seem to be doing well with there camera's and x series lens. I have the (old now!) X Pro 2 and a few lenses and I think the quality is excellent for my needs and has helped bring me back into photography. This camera would make a good street photo camera IMHO.

Well, since the X-Pro2 was released, they've released the X-T2, the X-T20 and the X100F not to mention a smaller X ILC.

justmeMN: No red dot, no sale!

In addition, this camera isn't priced high enough to be a luxury status symbol!

Fail! :-)

Shlomo Goldwasser: Very beautiful looking camera, but it would look nicer with a 4k sticker.

You'd really want this camera, with a fixed 35mm equivalent lens, for video, or do you just want to find one thing to complain about?

rsf3127: Nice camera. But for 2x the price you can find a Sony A7 nowadays? No, thanks.

In your original post, you said the A7 was twice the price. In the above post, you now say it's half the price. Either way, I'd prefer the ergonomics and the character of the X100F images and I own A7R and A7R2.

Len_Gee: Is the X100F enough of a jump to sell my X100T? No. Not when I bought mine for $350.

On that basis, it will never be.

Marty4650: A great camera just got a bit better, so that isn't anything to scoff at. And it lists for the same $1,300 that the first model did seven years ago!

For anyone who wants this sort of high quality, high styled compact street shooter than there really is no competition. You have to go all the way up to a Sony RX1R II to do better, and that will set you back $3,300.

Kudos to Fuji for creating a near perfect camera in this class. And what a shame that Nikon dropped the ball and gave up on their promising Coolpix A model.

If you can live with Sony ergonomics

TerrificShot Photography: Series T is a great documentary/ travel camera but it seems the weather-resistance is missing on F series ??!
Good news seems the larger battery. Im noticing the camera has a USB port. Can we charge the larger battery via USB? This is a big thing when you travel and want to keep your weight down. Hopefully it has not been lost in the process.

Yes you can. I believe that it is mentioned in the generational improvement table.

I rushed out and bought one to replace my original X100. Haven't regretted it.

Terry Breedlove: Nikon will now focus their attention on Mirrorless FF cameras and own that market soon.

and produce a whole new line of lenses for that series of cameras?

zeratulmrye: The product that actually changed my view about medium format is Hasselblad X1D... So slim, so sexy.

I had a play with a pre production X1D and the thing kept freezing up. The rear display and the viewfinder took ages to refresh. Yeah, I know, pre production, but I'd bet that the GFX pre production models performed much better.

It won't change many opinions at the current pricing levels. If they had a machine and lens ready to go at, say, $8,000 then maybe. Bear in mind that at those levels of resolution, file sizes will also be significantly larger bring into question the processing power and storage on your computer.

In reply to:

justmeMN: I never owned one, but the body design certainly is daring/interesting.

I have one of this range, a 990, I think. If you want interesting, look at the Minolta D'Image V. I was given one as a gift in the pre-dawn era of digital photography. Similar to this Nikon, except you could disconnect the lens/sensor section and connect it to the body with a cable.

What I really want is Acros.

I keep a list of my cameras and lenses on OneNote which is in the cloud and scans of invoices for major items anyway. Putting them together may be useful, but I'd need to know I can access it forever.
