I think they will
won't the x100s have FP ?
Thus i'm sure the X-E2 or whatever will have that too ;-)

Fuji should *really* consider offering Peaking via firmware update for the current gen bodies (X Pro X-E). They'd be stupid not to...

I do the same thing I just use a D700 when I need to shoot a bit faster. Actually lately I've been using it for manual focus lenses. I got a couple of Voigtlanders, a older Nikon 20mm, and a Lester Dine 105mm (absolutely amazing lens). So maybe it's not faster...... I'm trying to slow down even more. It cuts down on the time spent in front of the computer.

Not to be a contrarian, but having tried peaking on NEX, it's really just not the same as using a big optical viewfinder for manual focus. I suppose it's a good compromise since a lot of these cameras don't have optical viewfinders. I've never even bothered getting adapters for the Fuji cameras. The lenses are as good as the Nikon ones I have so there really isn't a point. The Fuji 60mm is the only macro I've used that is as good as the Lester Dine. I suppose I'm a bit curious about the split image focus patch on the new X100 but I'm not buying it because of that. I doubt I would ever use manual focus with it. Focus by wire is just terrible.

Well, I was using DSLR's until last year (pretty much same time) and I would never ever use MF, found it terribly intimidating and a hassle. Enters NEX, tried AF, was a bit baffled by how unfast it was, so immediately switched to MF with peaking, and have stuck to that since then. I can truly say I would never had adopted NEX in the first place without Peaking. I was coming from a very fast performing GX-1 (and an even faster and better D700 before that) and I couldn't adapt to the 5N's AF (lack of) speed. Peaking made the NEX experience possible for me.

I'm still with the NEX5. I'd like to play with some Fuji-ness but budget doesn't allow for extra cameras. The NEX does a lot of what I want from it, and I think most of the things I can't get it to do are due to me, not it. In the upgrades I haven't seen anything that's a good enough reason to sell what I've got and buy another, losing money in the process. I'd love a viewfinder, but not enough to need to spend a few hundred quid. When things are good I'll probably still get the X10 for some fun and the handling experience, but in terms of the photos I, like some others, don't really notice which camera people take things with. Ignorance is bliss!

Agreed. The community there is growing. I meant to just encourage the OP that he isn't alone.
