    Not quite. Technically, a Leica M is "mirrorless" (I hate that term on principle - it goes against the grain for me to define something by the lack of a particular attribute...) Still, it's encouraging to see Fuji making inroads into territory traditionally dominated by the big boys.

    It's strange how mirrorless became the preferred term. Just lack of agreement for anything else.

    It sets my teeth on edge. We don't call digital watches "handless"... :speechless:

    Remember, for decades the western world used the term "wireless" for radio. And how about "lossless" for digital compression? Western Electric used to describe its early film sound recording system as "noiseless." I know. You're not arguing such terms aren't used... only that you prefer to not use them. :)

    And an actual X100, Gen 1, not an S or T ... color me impressed.

    I usually refer to my cameras as "mirrorfree" :)

    That's a more positive spin on the name.
