The X-T10 is a wonderful camera. I'm primarily a Sony shooter (A7r), but the recently acquired X-T10 is the camera I pick up just for the joy of shooting it (and yes, at this point I'll completely switch to Fuji as soon as X-Pro 2 prices will come down to earth). That said, there are a few things Fuji screwed up (intentionally? to push us into buying the X-T1?) with the X-T10 and some of them (2, 3, 4, 5) can be fixed in firmware, others will require a new iteration of the body. 1) We need the ability to fit a larger eyecup, period. Even the cheapest film cameras had this feature, why forego one of the main usability point if you're a company that has built is reputation on haptic and user experience? (I have to be able to see the scene clearly to be then able to capture it in a good way, or not?)* *that said, I might have found a DIY way to use a larger cup, I'll post the results should the experiment be successful EDIT: yep, it worked. You can check the results here: http://www.fuji-x-forum.com/topic/2284-sugru-nikon-dk-19-x-t10-extended-eyepiece/ 2) Why give us a bracketing option, but then hamper it with a limit to 3 frames with +/- 1 stop max? I can easily recover that amount in post, often even in jpeg. What we need is at least a +/- 2 stops, and better still the ability to shoot up to 7 frames to make HDR easy* *no, not "that" kind of HDR; but in landscape photography you often find yourself exceeding the capabilities of a sensor, and is nice to have the option to work with "deeper" (in terms of bit) files anyway 3) The self timer belongs on the "Drive" control wheel, if not for anything else for consistency and logic. With a firmware update you could easily let us assign one of the options on the wheel to that 4) People are alway whining about Sony and Olympus menus. I use both and guess what? Compared to them Fuji ones are even worst (even though, to be fair, they've come a long way since the original X100). Come on, get a grip and clean them up, or we'll send you to bed without dinner* *yes, with the "Q" menu you don't have to dig into the main menu that often. But still... 5) Lastly, not a mistake but a personal preference. I'd like very much the ability to assign the movie button to the focus magnification. I have that set up in the same place for all my other cameras (Sony and Olympus), and the consistency would be nice Other than that, IMO you've built an instant classic.
