    Will it be as good as Acros or Astia?

    Looks like they have stolen some of Hasselblad's thunder http://www.hasselblad.com/x1d

    Both cameras have identical sensor spec,hmmm.

    If that is so, Doug, then they are eessentially stealing from themselves. The collaboration between the alleged remnant of the Sweden and Fuji is well established in both photography and digital capture.
    There have been numerous examples of this over the years, possibly starting with the panoramic X-Pan.

    Hi Walter,

    in the RED warning page click on the word "details" and then click on " visit this unsafe site" and it will let you through.

    Thanks Eden,
    I have been encountering no problems with getting in to look. But it does not afford the luxury of logging on.
    I'm happy enough using the Al Capone.

    My guess is that the common denominator with the sensors, is Sony.
    Still, how the information from he sensor is turned into an image is what will differentiate them, and Fuji is more than capable of holding it's own there.

    Like Eden with the red screen of doom, I'm throwing caution to the wind and taking the bypass option.
    Chances are the whole thing is a false positive.

    LOL

    Just as the site was starting to show signs of activity as well, with a change of the COW image.
