For a nothing camera, sure it getting lots of attention, comments and interest from heavy Sony people I hear.

Rob890: New camera same looking pictures. How many of us can say that when they've obtained a new camera that their photos actually look better these days, or the way edit their pictures has changed and been for the better?

This H1 is the first X-Trans that most reminds me of the X100. Dark shades have texture and patterns in them, as opposed to the solid jet black 50% of the jpeg of the S, T, F. Colors are brighter too.

Melchiorum: It boggles my mind how entitled are some people in the comments below. I seriously can't fathom how one can be so bitter, sad an cynical to turn continuous major free updates of already good products into a thing to complain about. "It should have been like that from day 1"... No. Not it shouldn't have. That's not how progress works. You bought a camera, which would mean you were already satisfied with it. But just because you are given more free stuff in the future Fuji somehow owes you now?

Would you prefer it the way most other companied do it by releasing a new marginally better camera for you to buy every half a year? Jezus, people, what's even wrong with you?

Like Apple. Same thing. Gets better later.

jadot: I'd forgotten this was coming so a nice upgrade. On another note, I'd also forgotten how good the T20 looks in sexy all black. (Mine's silver).

The controls are much easier to see in silver

The first time vs. the other 1,000,000 times?

I like it better when cameras show dark areas with gradients. The picture of the 3 guys at the diner show jet black dark areas, pitch black with no detail at all, just completely dark. I like instead when dark areas show texture, as in the Buddha statues or the guy on the phone. Most of the other pictures are too dark with the areas losing all the detail. The human eye can see texture and gradients in dark areas, in order to keep more information (like a hiding threat or some food!) for the sake of survival. And even more so the animal eyes, many animals see well in the dark.

pacnwhobbyist: No issues with the IQ with this camera but wonder if the AF has improved.

No speed demon but great for many applications. About the same as other Fujis.

Tieu Ngao: I'm a Nikon guy (D750 and Coolpix A) but I'm thinking of buying this camera with the kit lens. However there are two things that I don't like: (i) no VF, and (ii) too plasticky.

It is not too plasticky. It is fine. It feels a lot like the Coolpix A. Not quite as tank strong as the A, but close enough. If you need a viewfinder, the closest to that is a mint X100 the black model. Those never get SAB.

The X-A5 with the Fuji 27mm f2.8 looks social, like a P&S at parties. With the bounce flash to the ceiling built in, it is a complete small package! And with the 35mm 1.4 it is amazing.

The X-A5, like the X100, have a bright OOC jpeg where the shadows are not severe. It is usually a colorful, bright picture. Even the shadows have texture. They are my favorite. I just got a black X100 too, again, for the 5th time.

If they put an optional viewfinder of the X-A5x I'd get it right away, with the viewfinder!

It is very attention grabbing, to see R2D2 in the wedding. It'd be better if the light came from different angles, different parts of a little ping pong sized light source, shooting light up, sideways, etc. Or a tennis ball half. I find it disorienting. Pictures are gonna show perplexed expressions form the subjects like "whaaaaaa?"

I feel that even in sunny days, the shadows are too deep. Too dark.

People forget how tiny the X-A5 line is, it is the size of the X70. It is way smaller than X-E3, than X100F, than X-T20. And with a 27mm 2.8 tiny pancake, it is the smallest camera Fuji has by far. It is jacket portable. Even pants portable with large pockets.

Time Magazine wrote that I told Apple to come up with a smartphone and to call it the iPhone and that Apple followed my advice two years later!

Google ‘time magazine apple must’

My forum name was cortland, the second person mentioned, right after bill gates.

Interestingly, the response to my suggestion was negative, as shown in the forum, and nobody in that forum thought the idea had merit.

Do you think I deserve that honor?

(I took that picture of my wife not smiling)
