After the first two days (and the announcement of the Olympus E-M10), the X-T1 is still ruling the CSC-ranking here. Amazon marked it at “best seller”.
if you purchase the X-T1 using one of the shoplinks on FR, you’ll support my rumor-work over the last months (and the upcoming one) with no extra costs for you

Websites and blogs are publishing first looks, hands on reviews, first impressions, sample images, videos and more. I told you, the buzz is terrific… and the first feedback… enthusiastic!
So it happens that the German site colorfoto (tranlsation) says that, along with the [shoplink 19559]Sony A7[/shoplink], the X-T1 is “a further nail in the coffin of the DSLR“. And what do you think? Could the X-T1 be the reason for you to get rid of your DSLR?
But it’s not only the X-T1 to be praised. It’s the complete X-series. Forbes declared Fujifilm “the Apple of the digital photography“, while Petapixel talks about the X-Factor and that “the camera industry would look a lot more boring today if not for the arrival of Fuji’s X-cellent, X-otic, X-Series.” And kammah, who got his hands on a X-T1, says here what many photographers think: “the new Fuji X-T1 looks and feels like everything the Nikon Df is trying to be. […] Holy Sh*t. Those were the words that came out of my mouth when I first looked through this new EVF. I was absolutely floored. Actually… I still am. Yes, it’s that good.”
Here are the initial impressions of michaelrcruz: “Although in paper, it looks like the sensor and the processor is a carry over from X-E2 but what’s different in X-T1 is the Predictive AF which in my initial testing works quite well. It is quite effective actually; I will probably do more in-depth testing in the future regarding this feature.” [videos down below]here and photographyblog samples here.

There are also some X-photographers shooting with the X-T1… look for their shots at fujifilm-x.com/photographers.
