...viewfinder position I wouldn't like it. (I never liked using rangefinger style cameras). Moving the finder to a standard location is whats making me jump for this. The big question is how big is it?
You'll find out the size soon enough. But it looks about the size of the XP1 to me based on dial sizes in relation to the body. With the XP1 you could use the EVF and not have to worry about parallax error of the OVF. And the quality of the EVF didn't bother me.

I really don't need to see what I'm looking at as clear as my naked eye. I just looked at things as shapes and forms and placed them in the frame. Having them crystal clear does not change that at all for me. After all, I'm use to composing by looking at reversed images through waist level finders on my medium format cameras.

ENJOY! More X-T1 images and EVF specs. Bigger EVF than E-M1! | Fuji Rumors

Looks interesting. Here are some better pictures.

That one looks to have much better ergonomics. And looks smaller than the XP1.

Fuji seems to be leading the way in this welcome evolution.

Fuji appears to be the only one doing this retro revolution right... I think

Looks... interesting! I wonder if it will have in-body image stabilization... That's been lacking on the Fuji X bodies so far, has it not?

In not completely unrelated news: wanted, APS-C only DA 23mm F/2 or faster auto-focus K-mount lens, reasonably priced - whatever that means - and sharp wide-open. I'm a little skeptical that either the DA 21 or the FA* 24mm f/2 can match that sweet looking Fuji 23mm F/1.4, can they? One is full frame and seems huge, and the other is small, but fairly slow. They certainly both have fan-bases here though, so maybe someone wants to enlighten me as to why I shouldn't lust after the Fuji 23mm F/1.4?

They have stabilization in their zooms. I don't think it will be in the body on this camera.

Dual SDs, 8 fps, weather-sealed body, weather-sealed 18-135 lens... why does this sound strangely familiar somehow?

$1800... not cheap!

K5 IIs is now $699 at B&H. $1800 is a little tough to stomach for that retro look and a little bit smaller kit. (for me)

But it's mirrorless and should be about half the weight of a K-3 body. Plus tilting viewscreen, it seems, and, it does look gorgeous... But yeah, if it's $1800 body-only, without in-body stabilization and "only" 16MP, that's a little tough to swallow.

We'll see if the leaked specs turn out to be true soon, but if so, it shows that at least Fuji are watching closely what Pentax, err, Ricoh are doing. In return, I think Ricoh ought to watch how Fuji are actively developing their lens line-up...

The most interesting feature of the X-T1 it is the very large looking electronic viewfinder. Looks huge, with viewfinder magnification of 0.77x too:
