So guys, Finally we are getting first rumors about what’s coming from Fuji at the biggest Photo event in September, the Photokina show. Fuji already said in the past that a lower priced X model may come this year but according to rumors we got there will be another High End X model too!
We have been told the low end model will feature a hybrid viewfinder like the current X PRO 1 and cost slightly less with slightly less features.
The new High End model will have some completely unique features compared to the current X PRO 1 model. I have no info yet about those features but I hope those sources reading this post may can help me out on this.
In stock status check:
Fuji X PRO 1 body is in Stock at Amazon (Click here), Adorama (Click here), BHphoto (Click here), Jessops UK (Click here) and Digitalrev (Click here).

If you want to check out the latest sexy looking X system borchure click the following link to download it: http://www.fujifilm.com/products/digital_cameras/pdf/lenses_accessories_catalogue_01.pdf. It also includes the new roadmap and an image of two of the upcoming new X lenses!
Fuji released the new firmware update Ver.1.11 for the X PRO 1 (download here). It adds the support for the new M mount adapter: “When FUJIFILM M-mount adapter is set to the camera body and the correction menu of “COLOR SHADING CORRECTION” or “PERIPHERAL ILLUMINATION CORRECTION” for the mount adapter is operated, corrected live image can be displayed on EVF/LCD for setting appropriate value with ease.”
Still no upgrade on critical needed points liek the AF speed. Hope that is coming as next!
The Fuji Guys (here via Twitter) just shared the first pictures of two of the upcoming new X lenses. Just click on the pictures to see the full size images and specs! My only concern is the huge size of the 14mm lens. Hoped for something less big. Anyway, image quality is what matters and let’s just hope this is a sign that the lens will rule!
