Hey all, I'm fairly certain that I know the answer to this, but I wanted to ask nonetheless as a hail-mary.
Quick context, I rented an X Pro 2 while my own camera was getting serviced. I came to realize a lot of the Fuji hype is real - specifically the color rendition. I was very impressed. I however was not a big fan of the plethora of buttons and endless settings. My wife owns an X100T and a lot of my criticism of the body's design extends to that camera as well.
This is no fault of Fuji's camera designers as many if not most of the buttons are necessary to support all of the cameras' features. Really, the best way to simplify is to subtract. Which got me thinking, given Fuji's ethos, I'm wondering if they've ever considered making a manual-focus-only camera which emphasizes simplicity and durability.
I obviously haven't any research to understand the market viability, so that may be the gating factor. As someone who shoots exclusively in manual focus, it sure would be nice to see Fuji take a crack at this type of camera. Right now we basically only have Leica creating these types of cameras and they're, shall I say, a tad cost prohibitive.
Anywho, just thought I'd ask. I'm hoping to be pleasantly surprised.
