They should have removed the following: LCD screen, autofocus, hybrid EVF (optical only), aperture/shutter priority, video, "A" mode on all the dials and disabled OIS on any OIS-enabled lens attached to the camera,

Meh...the $5000 Hasselblad Lunar (Sony NEX-7) is the true legend!

pixperfect: I want to buy the X-T3 but I want to make sure the body is 100% magnesium alloy. Fujifilm used to include a picture of the metal body of the X-T1, X-T2 and X-H1. Fujifilm mentioned the body is magnesium allow but there is no picture of the body without the rubber skin.
Canon mentioned the EOS R body is magnesium alloy but when Lens Rental took it apart, all you can see is plastic and no metal. I am wondering is Fujifilm is doing the same thing as Canon.
I really hate plastic camera, this is the reason why I still did not buy the X-T3.
Some body can show me where I find a picture of the X-T3 body? Many thanks.

Maybe he's a spy and need to be able to stop a bullet with the camera.

I'm curious what Leica gets out of this. It's not like people who buy the Panasonic body will buy Leica lenses at +$5k a pop. Nor will more people buy a Leica body just because cheaper Panasonic/Sigma lenses become available. Did Panasonic and Sigma dump a bunch of money into Leica's lap to allow them to use the L mount?

Anyone remember the OVF on the Canon SD700 IS? I tried looking through it once and never used it again. It was basically a pinhole. Anyways, I prefer EVF after using the one on the X-T1. On my X100s I switch between the two. When I want to do some real abstract photography, I use the Force.

In reply to:

krassphoto: A silly question. Could it be that xt2's screen is touch-able? And now, after release of xt20 with touchscreen, xt2 will get a huuuge firmware upgrade, enabling touch screen feature? That would be great and very "Fuji-ish" :)

Why would they disable a physical feature only to enable it later? Makes no sense.

A touchscreen! Why oh why does this have a touchscreen and not the X-T2? Do we have to wait 3-4 years to get a touchscreen on the X-T3? Maybe they can come out with a X-T2s with a touchscreen in the meantime...

With a MF camera, I can call a 35mm camera a crop camera...

FantasticMrFox: And it's getting more and more DSLR like with every iteration - seems like it has slowly dawned on DSLM manufacturers that people actually want to be able to hold a camera without getting cramps in their hands, and that requires a certain size and decent ergonomics.

So what was the point of mirrorless again?!

Small lenses...

Size and price is the seller here. If I can get rid of my notebook and tablet and use this thing to transfer my photos from SD card to an external hard drive, I'm going to get one. Currently I have a notebook and a 8" android tablet for travel. I've been considering a Microsoft Surface, but the price is too high. Sure it's only 10 inches. But that means it's easy to pack into a messenger bag or backpack. I only hope it has an integrated GPS.

Perfect for people with aging parents who are not tech savvy. Too bad it's not available in North America.

The specs say the LCD screen 104,000 dots...quite the massive downgrade!

A better patent would be to allow companies to put cellular phones into silent mode automatically. Like in a movie theater or at a restaurant.

That lens seems really soft. Did DPR try a second X70 to see if better results can be had?
