Looks like a very decent camera well worth attention. The only factor that will decide on its success however will be price policy.

At the moment Fujifilm looks truly competitive only in bridge cameras market, but even there it looses for insufficient amount and quality of advertisement.

Fuji cameras are innovative and unique in many ways, but say, Olympus is much better in explaining it to an ordinary Joe. A bit less pride and more intrigue on behalf of the maker would help a lot.

Price does seem a little steep but there are some nice innovations like the high speed EVF which will appeal to DSLR owners. Should also appeal to those who like more traditional looks (i.e. those of a certain age Wink ).

You could make it a prize in a competition Smile

Not at all. I think dials have great advantages over push-buttons in that they are less fiddly and I know that a quick twist will reset the options immediately - with buttons there is almost always a short lag while the electronic connection 'engages'. For me, that level of responsiveness is not a dealbreaker but it is something I really like when it is there.

Just available to pre-order.

Not just pleasing traditional looks, it should be a good camera to use.
I have a Fuji X-E1 which is so easy to control in manual or aperture priority. I have the function button set up for ISO, but this new X-T1 with a separate dial will be even better.
Control wise looks like being every thing the Nikon Df seems to fail on - easy adjustments whilst at the eye. That is just my impression from trying the Df in a shop and reading reviews.

I love the looks of this camera - the shape of the top plate is so like one of my favourite film cameras, the Contax 159MM.

Be patient, give it time and the price is bound to drop.

I have found digital rev to be the cheapest. what you see is the price you pay. i.e. delivery and import tax included. I recently bought a X100s for 699.00 this was about 180 cheaper than in the shops
