I wonder sometimes, do most of you people actually take pictures.......?
Coming from 30years+ pro Nikon cameras, in the time I bought the Eos m1+22mm, still own it, great great files and if you've ever learned how to take pictures, there's still nothing wrong with that camera. It's built for a lifetime, and as said files are fantastic.(NO, absolutely not a Canon fan boy, but certainly not an enemy either) Bought a Voigtländer optical viewfinder and it works like a charm! Yet, you have to know how to take a picture. The M1 made me very very happy! B/W stills great! Now I also own a Leica Q. I am in heaven 'cause now I ALSO have a camera with a built in viewfinder.....
(oh brother......)Now all you moaners go out and go take pictures with whatever camera you've got, IF you actually DO have a camera!

Contra Mundum: The truth is that nobody would have noticed this camera if not for the red dot and a hefty price tag. Ironically, the last thing Leica is related to is photography. It's an item for Wine Connoisseur or Golf magazine.
Some women throw a lot of money on diamond pendants, some men -- on Leica cameras, the purpose of both is to impress others. If you are interested in taking photos, on the other hand, there are a lot better choices out there.

@ Contra: and STILL there's no DELETE/DON'T FREAKING LIKE button.

In reply to:

Jessie Anderson: It's a fun camera...

Is it expensive? Yes.
Is it a bit limited? Yes.
Does it have some very UNIQUE capabilities? HELL YES.

Very intuitive and well engineered.
It's extremely fast focusing.
Extremely quiet.
Good looking.

Today I received mine, at last...... I picked her( her, because of "pat factor")up 2 hours ago(Netherlands ) It's a dream! The files, and I am talking jpegs here, straight out of camera are already unbelievable ...... (tomorrow Raw.) Alone touching it is an experience I can't put to words right now. I feel very privileged that I may own such a "precious!" (not privileged because she's a Leica) But because this is amongst others a mechanical masterpiece, and in my eyes a piece of art.(Coming from X Pro 2 / and longtime Nikon adept.)It will be my only camera!

Kaso: My six-year-old no-name backpack works really well. Vanity takes one's money and adds nothing to one's photography -- assuming one does photography.

I put my XPro 2(with one lens) in my weather shielded coat pockets. All my coats have numerous pockets(weather shielded) for extra batteries, filters and the like.
Only the price of a (good)coat

Mmmmm, still using Aperture with several extensions. Works fine for me (Fuji X Pro 2)

In reply to:

Peiasdf: X-Pro is the poser camera for those that wants to look like they are carrying a film Leica but don't know how to MF and develop film. Most X-Pro are just fashion accessory and never used. The photographers I know that actually do street photography use X100, RX100 or just their phone.

X-T is actually the flagship of the lineup and for those that actually intend to take photos. X-E is the budget X-T.

(@ peiasdf)Than maybe you don't know that many Fuji (xpro)shooters at all?
Or Fuji camera's for that matter? " The XE is the budget XT " ....????
(still no "dislike"buttons here)

In reply to:

Nikonandmore: My honest 2 cents? The X-Pro2 was just released & already looks like a dated camera. I find this all a bit too ridiculous. There are too many cameras on the market already & too more many being released too fast that are all too similar to each other. Looks like everyone just makes the same camera again & again & again with minimum invovation. The amount of cameras that are all basically the same among different brands & even models of the same brand, is astonishing. And no one knows how to name cameras anymore other than calling everything "something X". This industry becomes a mix of boredom, endless higher cost & minimal true advancements. There are more new cameras being released faster than fresh milk bottles at the supermarket. Im surprised no one is making these disposable yet to accelerate the process even more.. or cameras able to self-destruct itself a few months later so we keep buying more "same" stuff even faster.. of course, they need to be called the "D-iXposable"..

@T3 + 1 and then some

In reply to:

photogeek: I had an X-T1. I'd be fine sticking with Fuji if it wasn't for three things:
1. Lenses have slow and noisy focus mechanism
2. Metering is nowhere near as good as the competition, often under- or over-shoots.
3. Poor support of the sensor layout in Lightroom and elsewhere. Yes, it's poor even with all the improvements Adobe has made.

Ultimately #1 made me sell it. Lenses were otherwise excellent, but in this day and age I expect silent and fast autofocus.

My x Pro2 with 18-55 are pretty much pretty silent....

In reply to:

ecxs: I would have given this camera a gold award just for the improved autofocus alone. I had the xpro1 and now have the xpro2. The speed improvement and reliability is just worlds away. Of course I understand there are other cameras to compare it with other than the the xpro1. Just my humble O.

+1! But not just for the improved AF. I too had the Pro 1. I loved that camera in spite of whatever! This one I love, I love, I love, I......

In reply to:

straylightrun: I reckon Fujifilm intentionally puts these bugs in so they can release more firmware updates and people will think they are cutting edge and up to date because they are always “supporting” their products. Fuji fanboys eat this up!

Sometimes I really wish there would be a DEF NOT LIKE button!

Gerardjan: @team DPR.... actually, my remark/comment, actually, has nothing to do here, but as I read comments/questions about reviews coming/not coming, I will ask once more, and this time I hope to get an answer. Though I am really surprised(pleasantly!) about this review will there ever be a review on f.ex the canon EOS M? Any M?(preferably now the last one?) I am not a Canon user, I am a Fuji user. This is my 4th time asking. (Of course now hoping we very very soon too now may be reading reviews on the new Fuji cameras! Thank you in advance!

Okay, thank you Richard!
