    Admin, are you sure about the name? In the picture, it looks more like an X-T1

      I think you are right – it does look like a X-T1.

    Amusing: Last year (thanks to the Sony NEX-7?) all the bloggers and forum pundits seemed to want nothing but rangefinder-shaped cameras with the EVF stuck on the left end. Now (thanks to the Olympus E-M1?) taste is shifting back to SLR-shaped cameras with a central EVF. (One casualty of the change: the Panasonic GX-7, a really nice camera that nobody seems to want.) Prudent of Fuji to have a foot in both camps, I guess…

      The DSLR is dead. Long live the DSLR-like camera.

      Bloggers need something to write about. Otherwise, no traffic, no sales, no affiliate income, no blog! Basically what drove the newspaper business (the ads paid for the content). Bloggers don’t work for free, at least no long term–not a great business continuation plan.

      Also believe that the North American and European markets have voted the DSLR shape as the preferred “advanced” camera form. I was comparing my Nikons to my Olympus Pens, and yeah, the Pens look like glorified point and shoot cameras. No wonder the average consumer looking to upgrade from a smartphone or point and shoot would lean to the DSLR looking camera, despite both having similar practical performance. Yes, I use both systems (and Leica M) depending on the subject matter, expected lighting, and other factors.

        So you find the time to use all those different systems, and write pointless long posts here….

        “voted the DSLR shape” – no, they voted for the DSLR itself.

        Sales of mirrorless dive down, so do sales of bridge cameras. Both go down MUCH faster than a DSLRs. Conclusion is quite obvious once you seen the numbers.

        I should have a blog and randomly rant about random photo stuff. Would make life easier on my kids and husband :P

      Maybe their market research found out that there are not that many people with large noses :)

      The introduction of a Fuji version of the Olympus EM1 would explain the planned introduction of the 16-55 and 50-140 f2.8 zooms. A SLR shaped camera with the Fuji sensor, those two zooms and the 23mm f1.4/56mm f1.2 would, for me, be the first real mirrorless alternative to my FX DSLR.

    I’m sure glad it has a shutter release.

    • Don Hogfan

      What, wouldn’t you like for your camera to decide when to take the perfect picture?
      Put it on your quadcopter let it go around and come back with some wonderful images?

    • TheInconvenientRuth

      Agree. More cameras should have this.

    • simon

      I shutter releases are way overrated, I really don’t need that feature. I mean there are plenty of cameras that have one we don’t need another one.

  • fjfjjj

    True or not, the picture is the worst Photoshop job I’ve ever seen on a photo rumors site.

    • x-ray joe

      An angry little man pretending to be a scorned woman pretending to be a photographer pretending to be good at photoshop.. broadway would be all over this if it’s not frozen over these days

      • Ronan

        Hahahaha!!!

  • Sky

    Looks like a photoshop work.

  • mooh

    Letter “T” actually makes sense, as it traces itself to Fuji’s M42 cameras.

  • Antony C

    I’ve always felt that the big XF lenses look awkward on the rangefinder style X-pro and XE. This DSLR style XT1 is a perfect body to the good quality lenses Fuji makes. Also, it looks better than Df due to smaller size.

    • Zograf

      So do Canon, Nikon, Sigma. Not to mention Leica or Zeiss.
      For example Fuji’s 35/1.4 overall is no better than Nikon’s or Canon’s 50/1.4 not to mention the new Sigma 50/1.4 ART lens….

  • Corvi

    EVF only ? Ill pass

  • Mike

    Sits in between the X-Pro and the XE. Interesting. I’m glad I hung onto my DSLRs long enough for the DSLR shape to come back into fashion. :-p

  • Global

    Sorry, but will this be better than the X-E2 (in terms of professional features) without likely being much larger? If so… i want this for travels.

    Im really looking for an excuse to try Fuji.
