There's a great article on the Verge about the Fuji X-T1... A camera that's really growing on me, especially since Fuji has an official M lens adapter and their firmware updates are timely and responsive to customer feedback. The results with M lenses is nothing short of delightful. Worth checking out:

Hmmm.... S-T-O-P!

I shall call the exorcist, to remedy you from the evil temptations!

See about the black T first, in person. A different experience for sure, but might be worth it.

Too late. :p

As much as I love the design and ideals behind the T and it being a Leica... It's just too expensive. The camera is $1,850 and the M-Adapter T is $395 for a total of $2,245. I just picked up a mint ("used") X-T1 for $1,150 and just need the M Adapter (worst case, new for $199) for a total of $1,349... Representing a savings of $896! And that's before adding the Visoflex to the T which is another $595.

I figure I'll give it a shot and see how it works out. I really don't want to buy more lenses; T or X. The only exception to that would be the XF16-55mmF2.8 R OIS WR due out later this year, just to have one "all in one" lens w/AF.

Ugh! That's all I'm going to say about it :-)

And when you're trading it in, why not try the X Vario as well... (makes a graceful, yet fast exist into the shadows..)
