    Yes it's stablished. You know it doesn't have the xtrans sensor right ?

    Played with an X-T1 today. Boy lots of dials and knobs. The viewfinder is very nice, pretty much the same quality level as the OMD E-M1. I did like the way the Fuji displays the electronic level better.

    i think the xt1 vf is nicer personally. i didn't run it side by side but it seemed bigger and the multiple display for MF is ingenious.

    I only had a few minutes outdoors in the parking lot at the store. I was talking with someone who had just bought it and we traded cameras for a quick look. I have not seen anywhere if they share the same Epson panel or not. I have read good things about the Fuji feature set in the display. Mirrorless is certainly getting started down an interesting path of innovation in what to do in that area. I can see a few potentially breakthrough possibilities that would cause more people to make the leap from OVF's. Imagine adding an eye tracking sensor so that the manual focus magnification would be the area of the image you glanced at right when you touched the focus ring on your lens.

    The primes are not stablised but most of the zooms are (all except the 10-24).

    tim,

    Have a real good look at the X-M1 rather than the X-A1. The M1 has the Xtrans sensor and is something of an orphan so it can be picked up really cheaply. No Fuji cameras are any good at video. If you want video buy a Panasonic, Sony or Canon.

    Thanks all. Yes I read about the Xtrans sensor on the X-M.
    Regarding video I guess it's because Fuji is a newcomer to the video business; hence the result.

    They are and they aren't. I think their push at the moment is very much still photography and video is only really available because it ticks a box on a spec sheet. They don't seem to have any real interest in people using their still cameras for high end video work.
    Having said that Fuji make some of the best movie camera lenses in the business, Some of the Fujinon movie lenses are north of US$50,000 each so they do sort of have a foot in the video market.

    In the past, when taking the family out, I often had to decide which one to take? Camcorder or stills (DSLR)? With a mirrorless camera I won't have to make such decision again.
    It's a pity though that I might not get the Fuji X even though since I like its look the most.
