Yes, the Olympus 45mm f/1.8 lens does indeed focus in a snappy fashion. I've made some great portraits of family and friends with it while just sitting around and chatting with them. The combination of fast AF and tap-to-focus-and-shoot using the rear LCD on my E-M1 allows me to just have a conversation, maintaining eye contact and quickly capture very natural portraits.
Have you tried using card recovery software to try and get the images back? Usually when you "delete" a file the data is still there, just no longer on the table of files. If you haven't overwritten the space with something else, recovery software can often get the images back for you.
Dials and knobs are great for quickly determining settings as you mentioned, until it gets dark. Then screens become more useful. Maybe Fuji should add illuminated dials and knobs to the feature list for the X-T2.
What is your name? What is your quest? What is your favorite color? ;-)

Therein lies the beauty of the Micro 4/3 system. The sensor is smaller so it only uses the central area of the lens which tends to be the sharpest in many cases. It also avoids the acute incidence angle at the edges.

It certainly looks like an interesting beast. I have the RX1 and love it. However, I'll probably wait to see how the lens choices develop over the next year or two.
If you build it right (with plumbing and gas in the right spots) it could potentially be a bonus selling point to the next owners. It could be rented out as a studio apartment, house an elderly mother-in-law, or be an awesome room for a teenager. [It could be all those things, but only if it has a bathroom. And plumbing it would add very substantially to the cost I'm afraid. At that point I'd be 80% of the way to the cost of a second story on the house. --Mike]

There's also a $50 rebate for the HLD-6 dual grip/battery pack. I just bought one yesterday.
I purchased my body-only GX1 the week it was released in the US from Kenmore Camera, so it's been available sans lens if you looked in the right places. The GX1 is a great camera and the touch screen (which I initially thought was no more than a gimmick) has been wonderful to use in practice for quickly moving the focus point when shooting.
