I was alraedy very positive on the X1D when I handled it in July but now as we can see what is offered from others at Photokina, the X1D wins hands down if you lok for a portible, light medium format system that brings you back the fun in photography...
I love the concept of this camera, but I regret so much that it doesn't have a tilt screen.
Since years I am used to look from above into the finder (screen) and now I have to hold up the camera
to use the finder or the LCD screen.
But I am sure I'll get over that. Build quality is amazing.
Yes, a tilting screen would be great. But if the price for that would be to have a bulkier camera, I rather would skip the tilting screen. I uess it makes the X1D too thick. The Fuji X100 series has neither one. Must have something to do with the form factor.
The Fuji GFX is a totally different design philosophy. It is bulky already. So to add a tilting screen is not a big deal for the design...
