    End of September-ish they'd have to announce if they were shooting for a November/holiday release. If not then I'd wager, CES 2014. They'll save an XE-2 or the like for Photokina next year so will need to space out the schedule. *just my 2 cents*

    I'm really excited for one, I used the X100s to test out the X system waters and now I'm ready to jump in.

    Image Quality yo. Much disagreement over this, personally I think the S is nicer and more malleable, some think the original has a more authentic film look, to each their own. However, the images are definitely larger with the S allowing for more opportunities to crop-in, this is definitely useful for portraits.

    Rule #1 for camera shopping in modern NYC, don't buy anything from a store that also sells off brand luggage to tourists.

  9. NYCGooner added a post in a topic will there be an X-M1 and if so, what will it be?   

    If you believe fujirumors there will be an X-A1, X-M1, X-E1, X-Pro1 as the line for interchangeable lens cameras.
    Personally I'd stick to improving what they have. I do worry about them "cheapening" themselves. Though, I suppose grabbing as much of the market as possible can only mean good things for the future?

    http://petapixel.com/2013/05/21/rip-professional-photographers/

    "…there’s no such thing as Flickr Pro, because today, with cameras as pervasive as they are, there is no such thing really as professional photographers, when there’s everything is professional photographers. Certainly there is varying levels of skills, but we didn’t want to have a Flickr Pro anymore, we wanted everyone to have professional quality photos, space, and sharing.” – Marissa Mayer, Yahoo Event, May 2013"

    Fantastic! Really love the shot looking upward at the trees. The color schemes are very attractive.

    What is right for you is one thing, but you are mistaken if you think a DSLR or a Leica are the only tools for the "professional". Statements like those get under my skin like no other. In fact I hate the differentiation between a pro and an enthusiast, its ridiculous. Oh, someone decided to pay you for your images and now you've got that mythical label that you can point your nose up with? Big F*&$ing deal. The reality is that a lot of the "enthusiasts" I encounter are just as, if not exceedingly more, skilled than the "professionals" I've worked with, using tools of all sorts. Makes me think "professional" is actually synonymous with snob. I could say you aren't truly a "professional" unless you are working with a Phase One or Hasselblad medium format, that you're just another sport, event, or stock photographer. See how condescending and idiotic that sounds? All you have to do is look at all the recent advertisement campaigns using cell phone instagram work, and they are fantastic campaigns some of them. Its about dynamic content and vision. Anyway... I understand your frustration with the lens flare, go get it fixed, its not normal. And sorry for the rant, but I've had it up to here listening to that cr@p. Happy f^@%ing Friday all.
