Probably because EVF doesn't need the extra wide aperture to let light in and make the viewfinder easier to see through. And unless you shoot wide open a lighter weight, more compact and less expensive lens would be ideal. This is the real objective of mirrorless for many people.

Also most reposting accounts like

Isn't all that auto stuff is mostly software? I don't know if removing it would cut the price back far enough to even bother with.
>>
>>3680230
I'm sure there is. Tech is all there. It's just that companies are too dumb to jump on it. Leica does it, but ramps prices too much, and the rest wish to sell you auto focus lenses instead.

If a company would release a mf lens only digital body, price it competitively, they could tap large filmfag and hipster market.

There are few things that you'd need. Quality EVF. Just as good so people would not need to rely on helpers a lot. Auto WB setting, or something to change defaults quickly. One dial for shutter. One dial for ISO. Aperture and focus is on lens. You'd not need back lcd, metering modes, possibly not even auto modes involving shutter, although those would be possible. Could keep it at M all the time and make people learn as it is shot on film.
>>
>>3680278
I'm not hipster but I'm usually on manual and rarely use auto-focus. If removing automatic modes, auto-focus and tracking, and video could reduce the price by $500 then I'd be in on it.
>>
>>3680230
Leica exists

Needs excellent (possibly customizable via user extensions?) in-camera processing too in order to produce sooc jpegs with character. Various image ratio crops, curves, color management, maybe even Lab colorspace for saturation by luminance etc.

I love my X100F and its probably one of my favourite cameras, but what the fuck did Fuji mess up to have such awful image quality on close focus.

The output of anything focussed at 50cm or less is unusable. My 4 year old phone does a better job

No way they weren't aware of this awful lens performance when releasing

It's not a macro lens.
The optical path changes quite a lot when focusing obejects so close.
To get the optical path to be closer to what it's supposed to be, reverse mount the lens, stop it down to f/8 or higher and use the shortest focal length.

Depending on lens and camera, you can get 1:1 to 4:1 macro that way with acceptable quality.
The Canon 18-55 mm kit lens for example is known to be great for that, a cheap reverse-adapter usualy does the job.
Pic kind of related, a part of a microSD card and a hair photographed with an 18-55 mm kit lens reversed and cropped.

x100f = fixed lens camera.
>>
>>3679886
Accordong to the engineers, compromises had to be made in order to keep the lens small with a fixed rear element. One of those is spherical aberration at close focus when wide open. Shooting macro without stopping down is a smoothbrain move anyway...

I want to try out photographing with a tele lens because I never done it but I do architecture photography mostly and I would feel awkward walking around with such a huge lens. Would it be silly to buy a Micro Four Thirds camera just for the tele lenses? Because of the huge 2x crop the lenses are compact. Am I overthinking it? Do people not care?

I've got one of these big bazooka lenses, my flavor is the Tamron 150-600 in the OP

Tele zoom lenses are great for shooting birds when you really can't walk around much like on a boat or if you are not mobile, they're cool. Most of them are slow but they are quite versatile and these days they have decent IQ and some sort of image stabilization.

I shot Rolex 24 with this and a 105 f2.5 manual focus, on a Nikon Df, and not only was I under 300 most of the time but I got more keepers from the manual focus 105 as panning shots and as stills of cars in garages. My 150-600 has rarely been shot above 500mm and most of the time it was shit like >>3678905 but it has been there.

Yeah it may seem cool being so small but then you realise the resolution is shit.
What would you rather: crop a 61MP image while using an 80mm prime to get effectively 300mm zoom or use a 300mm prime on an 16mm body. The trade offs just arent there.
>>
>>3678845
The only advantage of longer focal lengts is archtecture is that you have less paralactic distortion as well as spacial distortion.
Once your equivalent focal length exceeds ~500 mm both are pretty much gone and your image becomes nearly telecentric.
Going any longer won't even be visible as the differences get cut in half each time you doubble the focal length and at that length they are pretty much gone.

If you want long focal lengths in a compact format and don't care about low light performance, you may want to look into bridge cameras.
They have even smaller sensors than M43 and crop-factors around 5 or 6 with equivalent focal lengths usualy over 1000 mm at the long end.

But going over 300 mm doesn't realy make sense for architecture and requires you to stand REALY far away.
Hell, even 200 mm forces you to go realy far away, wich usualy is impossible.

Why is it so hard to take a really good photo?
