I haven't seen this discussed elsewhere.  If it has been discussed, I apologize.

As many of you had probably read a while ago, David Hobby, Zack Arias, Bert Stephani, and Kevin Mullins were invited to meet with Fuji in Japan over a year ago where they were introduced to a prototype of the X-T1 and then provided feedback to Fuji while discussing the future of Fuji.

Three of those photographers are, perhaps, the most popular bloggers re. off camera flash use.  Is this just a coincidence?  It seems to suggest to me that Fuji may be working on a new flash system. What are people's thoughts on this?

I think the crude current flash system (that does not support it's own native wireless mode, nor HSS) is a MAJOR turn off for a lot of people
Fuji have 2 problems, they don't have suitable flashguns right now (so they need that) AND they would have to update bodies to support those 2 aspects

This should have been done right from the start, day one.
Minolta did wireless flash 20 years ago, HSS is standard on most DSLR's even budget ones (bar Nikon but that's their crippleware take)
I was frankly amazed that such a mistake was allowed to happen..

I am sure they are working on something, but until they get this sorted out I would absolutely not look at the Fuji X system
