    Yeah, the 0.005 lag time is incredibly low. 5 milliseconds.

    Rico, you’ve done it again! Awesome first-look to the XT1 at the X-Pert Corner. The most informative and best first-look out of all the ones that came online today (yesterday night). Thank you!!

    Have you mounted the EF-X20 on the XT1 yet? I’d love to see how what that looks like!

    Rico, with all the references to the EM1, am I correct to assume that you have your hands on one? How does the AF-S speed and accuracy of the XT1 compare to the EM1, and especially under low light situations?

    Very excited about the XT1. My only cons about it are 1/4000 shutter speed, and the EVF on the DSLR hump format. I like the rangefinder look better, it’s also nice not to smear my facial grease all over the LCD.

    Bring on the XPro2! Thanks Rico!

    Pretty much only one thing I can say: WANT! :biggrin:

    Looks like there are a few disappointments, but they got a LOT of things right here. I am drooling over some of these new features already, and I'm super happy to hear they kept the same NP-W126 battery too :thumbup:

    Yeah, I wouldn't have liked new batteries. I mean, they can always introduce new and better batteries as long as the old ones remain compatible. I think I have way more than a dozen batteries for X mount cameras, admittedly I have somewhat lost track.

    People often seem to assume that the X-Pro2 and the successor of the X-Pro1 are the same camera.
    They might be mistaken.

    Now I'm confused ... Successor of XPro1 will not be the XPro2? Please tell me the XT1 is not the successor of the XPro1 ... I like the hybrid VF in a rangefinder style body!! :(

    Great write up Rico. Cleared up a few questions I had. After reading it I pre-ordered from B&H. I think I'll still love using my XP1 - the OVF makes it for me. With the XP1 and XT1 I am SET! ...... Until the XP2 blows me away yet again.

    I am so tempted! I really like the design, size and features of this camera. It isn't perfect but no camera ever is. I just don't think I want to get into yet another camera system. However if I win the lottery this camera and some lenses will be one of the first things purchased!

    Definitely will be purchasing this camera, along with the complete Prime lens offerings from Fujinon.

    The 35mm, the 56mm, and Macro look good- along with the Zeiss offerings.

    This time I will rent them and compare one-on-one for a weekend to make my decision.

    Yes, Fuji Canada with another solid promotion - free grip with pre-order!

    Gotta pay my early adopter tax again...

    We rarely, if ever, get promotions in the US. Very tempted to pull the trigger right now ...

    I've often seen better pricing in the U.S. compared to the Commonwealth countries. Guessing that cuts margins here which makes promotions tougher to work in.

    Don't know if that's the case here though ...

    A superb looking camera. I'm thinking of this to shoot the 55-200mm. I'd think they'd be meant for each other.

    Fujifilm Canada has been nothing great. Did y'all know Billy from Fuji Guys is a part of the Fuji Canada team?

    Yes! Billy actually responds to messages left in Youtube too!

    It took Canada longer than US to get the Sony A7. I wonder if that will be the case with the Fuji's.

    ...

    I succumbed to the temptation and pulled the trigger.
