A new preview is up, this one with lots of pics (of the camera, not by the camera) including menus (in japanese) and looks through the viewfinder, both in optical with overlay, and also in pure evf mode.

If those photos are really accurate, I'll be passing it by.
Check out the EVF/OF photos.
They show a heck of a lot of crop. I mean the EVF should be 100% but the OF looks like it's maybe 140%...yuch....

I'm not sure I understand you.

The OVF shows more than the frame, by design, and the overlay shows a bounding box for the frame. This is so you can see stuff that is about to enter the frame from outside of it. It's a feature. Or maybe I don't understand what you are saying?

Where is the preview?
I probably shouldn't have used the word preview. Although to me the pictures and captions actually provide a whole lot more relevant info that most of the things which have called themselves "previews", so far - so I was still happy to find it.

What I mean is that the view from the OVF should be very close to the EVF with the framelines as accurate to the EVF as possible. The box around it has nothing to do with the image except seeing outside the framelines.
Leicas are around 92-94% accurate.

I hope you get this. The framelines should correspond to the EVF...
The frameline box should also be corrected for parallax as well.

This is a single focal length lens. It should be relatively easy to achieve this.

I STAND CORRECTED!
Because it was in Japanese, I thought looking at the VF images one looked down and not sideways...
Looking sideways, the OVF is very accurate to the EVF...
I'm happy and will now bow out and get some sleep....

I keep looking for reasons to not buy this camera but I fail at every attempt!

Street, I think your original assumption was correct: the top two examples are optical, the bottom two are views from the sensor. And now I see your point that they are not framed identically. I assume that they are not of the same exact view, because I agree with you that there is no way Fuji should have got that wrong.

Don, you shouldn't torture yourself! You know you're gonna either buy one or find a way to get hold of one and give it a good workout. And then you'll decide whether to pony up and keep it or cut your losses early. Nothing we can see or conjecture about now is gonna mean a hill of beans compared to the first couple of days you actually shoot with one.

So SLEEEEP bro! You already have a camera you love - this will either be better or you'll STILL have a camera you love! No bad outcomes here!

I like the film simulation feature - I guess Fuji have the copyright on Velvia/Provia/Astia !

If only they'd licensed 'Ilford' for the monochrome setting :)

The samples are very good. Way better than those that "sneaked out". Though nothing over ISO 200 that I could find. Looks very X1 in terms of colour and the images looked very clean.

The "camera porn" video with the lens hood and leather case should be BANNED! Its tormenting me!!

Now wheres that credit card.

I just had a little live chat with Amazon. I have always felt that at least here in the USA that B&H, and perhaps it is the same with Adorama and a few other camera stores, has a much better return policy than Amazon. I don't know how it is for you all in other areas.

Amazon will only give you 85% of the value if you return the camera and it has been opened and used...and of course you'd have to pay for your return shipping, too.

Now back to those photos!:biggrin: I've just begun to look at them, but I agree David they sure do look better than the earlier "sneaked" photos. I noticed the 200 ISO, too, and wondered if there was a reason for that...maybe just to show how the camera performs with that set speed? Don't know if that makes sense or not.

BB, the native 'speed' of modern sensors is really 200 ISO. They are so sensitive that a ISO 100 exposure is already a pull-exposure. This is especially common with CMOS sensors compare to older CCD versions.
