    Looking through my image library, I've taken just over 280k images with my X-T1 since purchasing it in December 2014. Seems like it's been a pretty reliable little camera.

    I had to glue the cover material back on, easy enough with a little Loctite, and Gorilla tape the bowed accessory door, to make sure it retains weather sealing, but those are cosmetic issues. Mechanically, it has been quite solid. Okay, I did need a puff or two of powdered graphite to keep the shutter speed dial from binding, but it works fine now.

    In short, I'm impressed. It's certainly been a lot more reliable than my Canon 5D2 was. Any idea how much longer I should expect it to last before I need to start thinking about replacing it? Just curious what others' experiences have been.

    I have been impressed with my X-T1 as well, I am pretty clumsy and it's survived many festivals and other hostile environments!
    The rubber grips all came off my X-T1 too just after the warranty expired- which seems a very common fault!
    I this it's rather embarrassing for Fuji that with all that technology the bit Fuji messed up was something as trivia as gluing the grip on!

    I think my T1-GS is roughly at 3k (some may say, really really low mileage that is). Comparing to your 280K & counting, mine is in pristine condition? :)
    My pro2 on the other hand has to be at above 50k mark.

    Love to see if yours can go another 100k.

    This kind of talk warms my triple X-T1 heart.

    Thanks for your replies, everyone. I found this site, after some searching...

    That's the sort of data I was hoping to find, but sadly they don't track any Fuji cameras. :-(
