surfoxy: Beautiful camera, with a simple, modern design aesthetic. Definitely a "want" feeling when they put the first prototypes out there, and love the idea of Lightroom in camera. Love the huge screen. Love the idea of a full-frame, fixed lens pocket camera.

Gripes include lens size (seems huge compared to my X100V), Lens performance from what it sounds like, weird sharing flows. The competition here is a phone. If I can't easily log into and connect to any app (Instagram?) I wanted, it's a miss. I know that's asking a lot, but hey, $6000 is asking a lot. If it did what I expect and had a great lens and autofocus, I'd be interested at half the asking price.

As it stands, I doubt I'd trade it for my X100V straight up. Well I know I wouldn't. That all said, I hope they keep pushing the envelope! Some great ideas in this piece of tech. Seems where things have to head to keep real cameras viable.

@lawny13 it’s the price, the ambition of the product, and screen size for me that set the expectation. Understand everyone won’t see it that way.

Doesn't appear particularly easy and has a very limited set of places to which you can share is my point @lawny13. I'm sure it will get better but again the bar here is your phone, and for the price, it should be a beautiful experience. Not one for which we excuse them for something less than a seamless experience.

FuhTeng: I agree, I'm glad it exists because why not? However, it's certainly not for me, and that's okay.

I'll go back to my X100V.

LOL is right. What a bizarre comment @AcerK.

surfoxy: 2.8 prime on a crop sensor camera? Not for me, but hopefully others will be interested.

I shoot lqndscape mostly at (full-frame) f4 or loser 90% of the time and would have many other uses than landscape. I’m stoked with the 1.4.
