vscd: I hear the SHOUT of Panasonic: "Hey, don't buy at PHOTOKINA!" We are developing but we didn't finish in time... don't waste your money, we have something else. Naaaaaah. Wait, wait.

Early adopters are a small part of the market for a product.

TN Args: Yes yes yes. Although the Hasselblad would be extremely tempting as the price points seem to be in the same ballpark. Blad is far more compact and its leaf shutter is vibrationless unlike the Fuji -- and no chance of shutter shock.

Good on you Fuji.

I can imagine all sorts of things. By definition they aren't real. What we have got is a Fuji with a large, mechanical curtain shutter.

jacketpotato: GFX for dough.
X1D for show.

I'm more likely to 'show' my photos than to get any 'dough' for them. ;)

Wow. Just wow. Here is a camera company innovating and moving forward. Whether it suits me personally isn't the point. I love their vision. So refreshing compared to retro-worshipping brands.

halfwaythere: One question remains: what's the point of this camera?

It's not like someone is going to buy A mount lenses just to use this camera, because I'm pretty sure there isn't going to be another one.

LOL, 'brilliant prognosticator'

Okay you have had your little whine about non-infinite feature sets, now let's get on to the review of how much fun it is to use and how good the photos are.

MikeFairbanks: I'm often wrong (just ask my wife), but I'm pretty confident that this one is going nowhere. I can't imagine anyone buying these shirts. They're not really funny.

I get the point they are making ("let's laugh at stock photography cliche's"), but I just don't see how that many people are in tune with those stale images enough to think it's funny enough to put on a shirt.

It seems like something we would see on April 1st.

But I could easily be wrong.

Wait till we tell your wife about your latest mistake!

TN Args: Thanks for the review, it is obviously a very good lens.

This is the lens that is offered as a kit on the new Sigma sd Quattro camera for $999 the lot. Huge bargain for people who like imaging excellence at low ISO without IS and slow-ish AF, and have a photographic style that suits such a rig.

Yes, my mistake. I knew the mount was different, but did not realize the lens was different other than to accommodate the flange requirements. The lens offered with the Sigma kit is substantially larger and part of the Art series.

situman1: What an Apple shill. As if these features are new and noteworthy. These clowns have the balls to remove the headphone jack just to make you use a stupid dongle or pay them $160 for stupid ugly bt headphones.

At least you outed yourself, on about 3 different fronts.

TN Args: Are you guys owned by Facebook? Are we going to get a stream of "Look what you were shooting 5 years ago today" articles?

@TillmanB, what I notice is that the 'classic' older digital cameras retain used value much too high. When I compare what I can buy by way of a current model, new or used, for the same price as a 'classic' model today, it starts to look like a joke being perpetrated on me.

Great. Nikon trading on the cluelessness of their customers.

Excellent. I'm really looking forward to 8K for its impact on stills photography.

Investors take heed from this. Invest in ANYTHING I cannot fathom.

It is only recently that I came to accept electricity....

Fortunately, I can still read your handwriting.

HeyItsJoel: OH THIS IS JUST PERFECT! I already have problems reading women and getting all their signals mixed up. Now you're telling me some hot chick is going to be winking and it might not even be directed at me?!

Well yes, it will be *directed* at you. She will have a few nice snaps of your lusting hopeless hope to take home and enjoy, maybe upload to Pinterest.
