Teaser for the X-T1, or whatever it's called. Fuji's weather sealed? SLR design camera. Dpreview have 'seen' the following in the image (and since they are probably evaluating one currently they may have better 'eyes' than most!)
 
features:
  • Shutter speed dial with X-Pro1-like locking button
  • Exposure compensation dial covering +/-3 EV
  • ISO dial, including 'A' position for quick access to Auto
  • Another control lever below ISO dial (function unknown, but drive mode would make sense)  
  • Movie record button
  • 'Fn' button which activates built-in Wi-Fi
  • Power switch surrounding shutter button
  • Large viewfinder hump, perhaps implying extra-large EVF
  • PC sync socket on front 
  • Electronic front dial below shutter button 
Meanwhile Patrick at Fuji Rumors has been collecting info. for weeks and he has the following.
 
  • bigger (extra-large) and better (high performance) EVF / (trusted +  anonymous sources)
  • APS-C X-Trans sensor II (16MP) / (trusted +  anonymous sources)
  • support for the UHS-II SD-card for super-fast writing speed / (trusted sources)
  • 8fps with AF tracking / (trusted source)
  • weather sealed body / (trusted sources)
  • tilt screen (source who was right in the past, but not yet upgraded to trusted source)
  • name: X-T1 / (anonymous source + Fujifilm)
  • price range between X-E and X-PRO line / (new and anonymous sources)
  • additional battery grip / (anonymous source)
  • faster AF then X-E2 / (new source)
I'm certainly hoping the battery grip isn't just a fantasy, since that would solve my only major gripe about the Fuji X cameras.  

I suspect we'll have full details before the official announcement. Looks interesting.
