New X PRO 1 reviews roundup!

Ther eis no day without a new X PRO 1 test. So here is the next wrap up:
Engadget (Click here) posted their final X PRO 1 test: “The Fujifilm X-Pro1 is a work of art, and like any masterpiece there’ll be some who hate it and others who get into heated bidding wars. If you’re sensible and price-conscious, then by rights you should be waiting for the auctioneer to bring out the Olympus OM-D E-M5. Or you should be looking at the X100, or even considering a DSLR, before investing this amount of money. But if the retro form factor befits your personality, you have an abundance of cash and you care about the subtleties of the sensor’s output, a powerful viewfinder and great controls, then there’s every reason to buy in.

The french blog Photo Fusina (Click here) received that special X PRO 1 package from Fuji (cat not included says the author). The wood case included:
– The three lenses (18mm/f2, and a 35mm/f1.4 60mm/f2.4 with their respective Lens Hoods.
– Leather case with X PRO 1 camera included
– An UV filter,
– The grip,
– Lens cleaning set
– Various small accessories such as case for the UV Filter, CD, battery, …
– Fujifilm SD card 64GB

The author says that Fuji told him that he is now part of the “Fujifilm Pro membership“. This is a new initiative from Fuji and they will soon launch a new website for the “PRO members”. What the author doesn’t know is if that special box will be go for sale for anyone or just for PRO members. As you know Fuji launched a special all Black X100 limited edition so there is a chance they will do something similar with the X PRO 1 too! Let’s cross your fingers!

The X 100 special kit is available at BHphoto (Click here).

New full Fuji X PRO 1 review by Ken Rockwell

Ken Rockwell (Click here) the most famous photography blogger posted his final X PRO 1 review: “The Fuji X-Pro1 is an amazing one-of-a-kind camera. It has image quality and lenses more like my LEICA M9 than any DSLR, and it’s smaller and lighter than any DSLR — or LEICA. The X-Pro1 does what the LEICA M9 does well, even better than the M9 does it!

Overall he is pretty impressed by the Fuji and recommends it to anyone that doesn’t shoot mainly landscapes (for that FF cameras are still better).

Brandon Remler (Click here) is testing the 60mm macro lens which is also the best of all three X lenses: “The sharpness is great and it’s a terrific lens to own.
