Fuji roundup (SLRmagic, X PRO 1 vs E-M5)

As you know not only Fuji and Zeiss but also SLRmagic announced new X mount lenses. One of them is the 23mm f1.7 HyperPrime and you can see some picture of the lens attached on the X PRO 1 at ThePhotblographer. This is a manual focusing lens and it will be available for purchase in February 2013 for $399.

ThePhoBlographer also posted a double X PRO 1 field report:
1) Weekend of Extended Use With the Fujifilm X Pro 1 and Olympus OMD EM5 (Click here)
2) Shooting Candidly With the Fujifilm X Pro 1 (Firmware 2.0) (Click here)

US reminder: There is still that $300 saving deal on the X PRo 1 purchase at Amazon (Click here). But despite that huge deal the X-E1 is far more popular according to Amazon rankings. The X-E1 probably hit the right price-features spot.

    Keep in mind that ThePhoBlographer said he used mostly the OVF in his test. So take it for what it’s worth.

    That, and Phoblogger tests lenses of different f-stops, different focal lengths, and different types (prime vs zoom) as benchmark…
