    Seems to me that the new Fuji is competing against the Pentax/Hassy HX/XF with IQ150 market. The Fuji you show is definitely the perview of Hasselblad with the X1D. Heck, I'd take the X1D with manual focus lenses any day too vs plastic fantastic HC lenses.

    Big fan of the Texas Leica myself, great camera. I also have a Mamiya 7II, Bronica RF645 and the obligatory Hasselblad XPan II so I completely understand the appeal of these cameras.

    Personally I'd love to see one of the manufacturers be brave enough to produce a 44x33 equivalent to the FujiFilm GF670 or GS645
    Ylem ...

    Or a Bronica RF645 equivalent. An amazing little camera. If I did not have a preference for 6x6 and my Mamiya 6, that would have been in my camera bag. Personally, the vertical orientation of the 44x33 format in a camera would be great.

    The Bronica came out just in time for film photography to implode.

    You meant XL200 didn't you?

    I do think that Hasselblad, after their ugly marriage to Sony, has produced a beautiful camera.
    Won't likely buy either though (unless someone wants to trade for my DF/80LS/IQ140). And I'm happy with the X-T2!

    This camera has some very attractive, even compelling, features. Love that the lenses will have aperture rings ... and they have a 100/2 in the pipeline!



    Does anybody know if the aperture ring on the lenses behaves as a normal manual focus aperture ring? As in, is it electronically linked to the camera?

    Or could it be placed on a smaller format camera and be used as a tilt/shift lens?

    All indications would point to it being an electronic aperture ring only, similar to the X series lenses. Any adaptor (t/s or otherwise) would need to interpret these signals, as well as send the appropriate "stop down" and focusing signalling, as they are also focus-by-wire. All of this to say they would not make good candidates to adapt to any other systems.
