EricWN: Sure, anybody reading camera news recently knew that Nikon had a hard time, but the writing style of this piece is unnecessarily unprofessional. Might be great for the Onion, but I would have not expected less of a negative attitude.

I get your input, Blue Falcorn, and I think it's ok to let readers know that one personally is left cold by those presentations or feels frustrated but this is clearly mocking a manufacturer and that's just as bad as all the hateful comments from non-journalists.

Apart from the one question about the x100F, the only product the majority of readers here will ever be willing to afford, this reads like a joy fest without any critical elements. You could include questions from the forums, topics that are common in the forum etc. Besides, like last time, in a proper Interview I expect to be able to understand who says what, calling out the person who provides the statement.

techjedi: If they really want people to think about medium format differently, just price this camera like a full frame camera. It will be one of the best selling camera launches of all time. No idea what the margin is on a camera like this, but it feels like they could still make money at around $3500 for body and keep lens prices as they are expecting.

Wonderful to read some people out of place justifications why they used insults to make a point when commenting on somebody's opinion. Name calling is the first step to trolling.

In reply to:

james s. kennedy: In terms of IQ, is there any substantial difference between an iPhone 7+ and some of the fixed lens quality film cameras of the past such Retina IIIC, Vito III, Konica auto S2 or Canon GIII?

Relevance to article?

In reply to:

Light Pilgrim: It is all silly. Why all of a sudden pay 1000+$ for an OLED display? Other companies have ot for a very long time at a competitive price. But yes, Apple needs to ensure sky high margins. 3D camera....well.....hope it is not as useless as 3D touch. In all honesty....people are being turned into zombies...what we all need is a better quality life and it might mean to get rid of an iPhone.

Really hilarious comments, blaming the tool for the deed instead of considering a behavioural change. ;) But you know what, have fun going back to before 2007 and carry a P&S camera, a phone, an iPod, some GPS for the car...

cosinaphile: pointing a laser at a face is a recipe for blindness , so to avoid blindgate id advise
apple to work out all the kinks [ no pun] first before the release

perhaps its a very low power one

They're not Samsung so I expect this to surface without explosions or occasional blind users.

Sarah Terra: Use your pop up blocker guys, and spam these comments with disgust over a long time photo site becoming an smartphone propaganda platform

Seriously what's next for dpreview ...

liberal 'trump hate' articles for clicks?

liberals writing about a racist on a photo site?

As if the market for men purses ("it's European!") wouldn't be big enough. But good luck Thinktank, just don't forget to make your other, highly more useful products.

princecody: Fuji LISTEN! Make a X100 without the rangefinder. Add touchscreen & tiltable screen.

I'm not sure touchscreen would help me, but a tilting display would be awesome, if it's a nice one. But of course as a street shooter Fuji wants me to purchase an additional camera if I want left corner EVF AND tilt screen.

Calvin Chann: Coming from the original X100, this will be a big step.

Being in this situation, I don't feel inclined to upgrade.

wabre: why does anyone just assume this is not necessary? If Vertu exists, it means there's a market for this type of product. And while i was in Russia, i have seen people showing off these phones. So while people show off their iphones or samsungs, Vertu is the same, just on a higher price tag level. Nothing wrong with it.

I think wabre also dramatically overestimated the amount of people who have a good smartphone just to brag. Smartphones are normal now in many developed countries, and often the only owned computer for users in developing countries. They are not just fancy social bling. Besides, for the folks who do want the bling, there are already companies out there with iPhone cases and fancy replacement parts. I guess this caters to the same users.

User9362470513: Thousands of dollars, and it still runs the violently ugly and cluttered Android OS. Yuck.

Well said and it seems you already attracted the first Apple hater! Hilarious!
But yes, the overall package presented here looks as if Hyundai tried to build something luxurious.

YA9Productions: Today I was holding the 100t, x pro 2 and xt2 and I was really not impressed.
Too spoiled with my D810 and I really can't go back from the Full frame character.

However if those were third of the price I would grab one instantly.

Relevance to this article is...?

kewlguy: X-T20 makes more sense. Same IQ, half the price. The differences are just gimmicks.

Calling others fanboy is the first and easiest sign of trolling. It's the wish to go online simply to offend others. I hope DP starts cleaning up the comments from such nonsense.

a l b e r t: Lots of us are still waiting for the X-E3. Please give us the pro features: 1/8000 shutter, joystick, tilting LCD and 4K video.

Being able to have the rangefinder style, with the EVF on the side, and a flipping screen, preferably with touch focus, in one body would be great.

ovatab: iРhоnе 7 is overpriced in Russiа!

These are luxury devices in my opinion. There are much cheaper phones if you have a need for those.

EricWN: Dear DPR, thanks for this article. I was a bit surprised about the format. I would prefer to not read a summary style but to see every full question you actually asked and the exact responses. Your article has the charms of a marketing reviewed uncritical meeting summary.
Also, when attempting to do an interview, why don't you collect the questions ahead of time from the users in your forums? Pick the 5 questions with the most likes that are product related and fire them of.
While I appreciate many things Fuji does, in a good interview I want to see critical thinking and the courage to go two, three questions deep on a topic.

Thanks for providing some additional background on the article , I appreciate that. I guess it's the slightly non-interview format that I dislike. In times of Fake news, paid content, ads etc I prefer articles that have an intuitive format and in an interview I want to know exactly who says what at a given time. Thanks for taking the time to respond!
