tinternaut: Boring! Zero reason to buy this instead of the somewhat more complete Panasonic GX80 that can be had very reasonably at the moment. Also, Fuji, Sony, Canon, Nikon and Pentax all put the best available 24MP APS-C sensor into their low end devices.

Guys,you missed which target market is this camera for ,believe me,white version will sell VERY WELL in Asia.

radissimo: great gallery

but I feel that these PRO lenses would be a great opportunity to put aperture ring on them...sigh

nothing wrong indeed, its just my preference, just like tactile feedback + you can PRE-SET an aperture even before switching on the camera. I am just old -style type - e.g preferring my FUJI lenses to my SONY lenses because of that...

Mac users first, Windows users 3 months later? Fuji should study market share first.

as an owner of about fifteen 38-45mm lenses ( --> favourite focal lenght on FF) I am planning to buy this one as well,I think this might be the best of them all...(for me). I wish it would be made in M-mount,but exif data , no misalingment with adapters, magnified focus and lens tweaked specifically for sony sensor might be actually worth giving up the flexibily of the M-mount.

Captain Hook: Ludicrous... No other words for this insane collectors insanity. Sorry. :-(
A pure mechanical device could keep its value and would function in a few decades... but a pure electronic device, like this digital camera (electronics, sensor chip, battery circuits, etc.) won't work anymore, in a few years time... let alone you could get any spare parts for it...
Just insane...

Also as ridicoulous as the DPR counting boxes in this topic
57 - I own it
218 - I want it
34 - I had it

Has the world gone crazy, or what? ;-)

that's for non-Oslo version

I have to say that I like Jeff's reviews: straight to the point, clear message: good on paper,real world use not that great.
No beating around the bush.
After reading the review you know what you are (not) buying.

Old Cameras: Sometimes I'm just baffled at the people who take time out of their day to think up something snarky and post it about... a camera company. Really? No, really???
I don't know about you guys but I like photography. I like film, better than digital but I certainly have, enjoy and use both. I have a dedicated darkroom that a built from scratch - it's a separate building - I built it. Two enlargers, running water, heat and a/c and this is strictly a hobby for me. I have shelves full of vintage photography books, I recently bought copies of Barry Thorntons Edge of Darkness and Elements a few months ago. Books on alternative processes. I'm sure my neighbors think it's a meth lab, it kind of looks like one. I come to this site to read about a subject that interests me, I don't have time to offer up my uneducated opinion about why one camera manufacturer is better than another. Who does?
Laugh at me, I just ordered the FTn poster.

seems like you are the "target customer" for this product.
that's fine
but there are some of us out there ,who work outside the film photo lab, who would be keen to see something more substantial.

In reply to:

ProfHankD: Looks perfectly reasonable. So, let's hope this helps bring prices on classic old f/1.2 50-58mm lenses back down to earth.... For example, the Minolta Rokkor 58mm f/1.2 is a truly outstanding lens, but it's often at $500 or more, while I think it's real value is more like $300-$350 (which I paid for mine).

but there is less and less Minoltas surviving and there is eventually endless copies of this lens available ;)

Panasonic, please don't forget to bring LX100 sucessor, thanks
