OH THIS IS JUST PERFECT! I already have problems reading women and getting all their signals mixed up. Now you're telling me some hot chick is going to be winking and it might not even be directed at me?!

david vella: Buy both as part of the great X system, and be good to go regardless.

@harveysteeves: I truck is not fun. A truck is an appliance.

Angrymagpie: This is not a troll question, but for those who are a bit fed up with the number of hours they spend in Lightroom and would rather shoot JPEG for their casual photography (and want a hipster look for their camera), X-Pro 2 would perhaps be the best camera? (Well there's X100T for the more budget-minded, but the point of the question is really about whether if Fujifilm has the "objectively best" JPEG engine). The JPEG engine of something like the new PEN wouldn't be as good right?

I like how you categorize the X100T as a camera for the "budget minded." Are these the same budget minded people who feed their dogs filet mignon for dinner?

PRohmer: I was looking forward to these two, seriously considering to switch from Micro Four Thirds. But I am not convinced at all. X-pro2 does not make any sense to me other then design perhaps. I wouldn't call it a flagship either. I need to see more images, but what I've seen so far on Flicker does not encourage, I am yet to see images with natural colors and realistic contrast.

@Marksphoto: To answer both of your questions: I do, and I have.

If I were loaded, I'd buy one camera system. And then I'd buy a motorcycle.

webber15: yes but it's hard to beat Fuji colors straight out of the camera. Also, it's hard to match Fuji colors in post processing from other brands (I used to shoot with an Oly E-M5).

HeyItsJoel: I can see how this could be problematic for many. But for me, I don't see the big deal. I'm not a purist. As long as it's done in good taste. If NatGeo needs to digitally enhance a photo to suit their needs, fine by me.

Putting Eiffel Tower in the middle of Times Square is exactly the example of NOT being "in good taste" for which I speak of. It would be drastically obvious that it doesn't belong there.

Thermidor: Two legendary photographers, Fan Ho and Bill Cunningham passed away in the same week. It's really heartbreaking, but I hope they're both having a cup of coffee and chatting together somewhere in the great beyond.

They're arguing the Nikon vs. Canon debate.

Who cares what's in his bag. I want to know what's in his pocket. How much does this gig pay and how does one get it? :)

Temporel: I wonder how he felt after reading this: Orthodox Jewish paper apologises for Hillary Clinton deletion
https://www.theguardian.com/world/2011/may/10/jewish-paper-apologises-hillary-clinton

Orthodox Jewish newspaper with a PR named "Di Tzeitung?" Somewhere in China there's a PR for the Chinese Times named "Abraham."

Reilly Diefenbach: In another ten years, Canon might catch up to the D7200.

Ken Phillips, I'm not sure what your point is. Mentioning that this is indeed Canon's FIRST attempt at making something that others already have is something special? The fact that Nikon/Sony does have experience and mature technology should be the reason to buy a Nikon/Sony over a Canon.

Chris Yates: Every question must seem an exercise in futility.

I think that's how they got their position. Can you imagine how the job interview went?

Meanwhile, back at Olympus headquarters...

CEO: Hey, we need to sell more cameras.

Marketing: I agree.

CEO: What can we do to make buyers believe they have access to something exclusive, only it's the same damn product?

Marketing: Hmmm... I got it! Let's put a leather jacket on it and maybe they'll think they really have something great!

CEO: I'm not talking about your wife.

This is Nikon running on 'CP Time.' :)

Thsoft: No 4K. Very Disappointed

There's a word for having a fantastic feature on any electronic device that you don't need: USELESS.

In the rare occasion that I do use video, the one on my iPhone will suffice.

Not me. I have no need for 4k video.
