Martin.au: Wow. Looks like quite a basalt on the senses.

That was a gneiss one

Androole: Seems like a nice camera.

It's too bad it doesn't have the Touchpad AF feature that other cameras in its class have, it really is a game-changer. Without it, I'm not sure I'd use the touchscreen that much on an EVF camera.

It's also too bad they couldn't cram in weather-sealing, but I guess the only competing cameras in this price range that offer weather sealing are Pentax and Panasonic.

It does have a touch screen, but I can't find anything about the performance of the TS in this review. Maybe I missed it, but it seems like a major omission considering Fuji has been reluctant to add it.

Blackdog68: Interesting article, but I have a hard time believing it would have been written if the exact same camera were introduced by Canon or Nikon as their new, super premium mirrorless MF system. Let's see a serious comparison of highlight rolloff in a real life studio setting. Seems the point of the article is to defend FF, which is perfectly fine, and may be true, especially for enthusiasts, but this isn't a camera that an enthusiast is going to buy.

So why not a studio highlight comparison? Isn't that a very rational use for a camera such as this?

And showing shots from a Canon with lenses that don't exist in the Fuji MF world yet also seems an attempt to subvert a new system before it gets started. I don't dispute the facts as stated here, but the author is in control of which fact are presented. Are there no situations where the fuji system might be superior to any of the available FF systems? According to this article, apparently not.

Wow, the 800 pound gorilla in the electronics field has spoken and every other camera company should be nervous. This camera checks lots of boxes: 1/8000 shutter, 1/250 flash sync, more phase detect sensors than the competition, 15FPS. It's an impressive spec sheet. Actual performance from this back sided APS-C sensor is yet to be seen, and the AF as well is untested, but if I'm Nikon or Canon and I've been waiting to really get into the mirrorless market, you may have waited too long.
