I 've had a fair share of new camera failures in my time (I am looking right at you Nikon!) and let's say I was less than impressed by how I was treated as a customer. So, I wouldn't be all too harsh on Fuji for this one, 'cause it seems like it will all play out well.
However, if they packaged the repaired-sensor camera as a "new" model, x10s or y11 or whatever, and sold it at a slightly higher price to wrench the cost of their failure from the customers after all, that I would resent.

I am indifferent as to the looks, but would like to see the sorry a.. who is going to hold the setup in the photograph above at arm's length and try to snap a picture!

What about the other half of the world where there are no authorised Fujifilm service centres, and all of us who bought the camera on trips abroad?
Where do we send it or bring it?

Well, I need a new phone anyway, might as well try this one. If its battery life is any good, it could be a sweet deal...

I do not think Adorama messed up in announcing the pricing. Hard to believe Sigma will find it in themselves to price it under $ 1500 ever...

Regrettably, sigma is all about strong promises and weak perfomance. They are definitely on to somethng here, but who cares...

Camera makers are not striving to re-invent cameras (let alone photography), they are striving to re-invent their margins. That is why they are offering ever so pricier cameras with which the only discussion really is about what they cannot do!

I paid that for my Canon 5D MkII, 50/1.4 and 580 flash (+other lenses I had from before) and am pretty sure it can smoke Fuji any time in any type of photography. What is it exactly that you get with this gorgeously looking (but not that small, either) camera over a proven weapon of choice like MkII?

In reply to:

Sanford: Stunningly horribly ugly! There is a lesson here, if you are going to use and outside designer to design your camera, have to good sense to use an Italian, not the British...

Exactly!

One can only take so much!
