isn't this really The Impossible's Project rebranding themselves as Polaroid Originals? https://petapixel.com/2017/05/12/polaroid-acquired-impossible-projects-largest-shareholder/

Fuji- how about giving us original x100 users this update!

Not being able to use plugins such as Silver Efex and DXO are deal breakers for me of ever using Photo unless Apple gets smart and grows Photo's features via o 3rd party plugins which I thought they would... Aperture R.I.P.

On top of the multiple firmware updates for my x100, and now this, makes my years old x100 purchase continue to get better- this is fantastic Customer Relations IMHO. All the more reason I will buy a XPII Full Frame, when it is released (fingers crossed). Go Fuji!

Photomonkey: These comments are in line with every preview gallery I have seen. "These are not so great" What a piece of garbage" etc.

The real lesson maybe that at some relatively low level almost all cameras look "average" in the real world. It is up to the photographer to make them look exceptional. And an exceptional photographer can make most any camera look exceptional.

+1. Skill & content will prevail over the latest camera sensor/gadgetry.

mytake: I wonder if we will ever see a "complete guide" for the Em5, like the ones Thom Hogan writes for Nikons?

FYI- I am renting the OMD this weekend and in preparation if I do purchase (after photokina) i found this book on amazon:
David Busch's Olympus E-5 Guide to Digital SLR Photography [Paperback]
David D. Busch (Author), Dan Simon (Author)

Way to go Dan Chung- nice to see some out of the box thinking. Shows talent + creativity + taking advantage of an opportunity = results. A few Picasso quotes come to mind: All children are artists. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up. Also another: Art is the elimination of the unnecessary.

matt k: Now if only Fuji could make a full frame X10 with excellent auto and manual focusing....and a viewfinder similar to the Xpro.....then they would have something I'd be willing to pay $3000 for.

I agree on the added x20 feature/function. $3k. I dont think so.
