Digicaminfo posted a new set of X-E1 pictures. Finally we can see the camera from the top and back too!
Ladies and gentlemen, the X200.
If there is going to be no actual X200 and this is what is set to replace it, I’m going to go with a used X100. I really need an optical viewfinder, and even if the X-E1 is priced sub-$1000, you still need a lens (which is probably another $500-700). So please Fuji, give us a real X200.
For me more like the Panasonic L2 or Leica Digilux 4 that never were… X-E1 compared to X-Pro1: http://i.imgur.com/dyD2f.jpg
What a great looking camera. Got the black X100, but this is going to be very hard to resist.
that is one good looking camera.. hopefully the results are as good looking!
Beautiful, i really love the silver finish ! If its really under 1000$ and has adequate AF-speed, its mine
i think its more like a mix of the x pro 1 and the x100, its seems to be notable smaller than the pro1 …
A welcome addition to Fuji’s excellent line-up.
Glad I resisted the O-MD. It’s going to be quite a Photokina this year
Something does not look quite right, the back view of the camera shows a OVF, but the front image does not show any kind of viewfinder….that’s odd…
It’s an EVF.
Guess they are getting more like OVF with every iteration! by the way this camera looks really appealing, just put a decent AF on it and will be no more excuses for great pictures!
Not like the flash design at all.
Looks like a NEX-7 killer. Similar design and specs, but a better sensor, MUCH better lenses and a lower price!
this has my interest AND my amex is waiting on either an olympus OMD E5 kit or whatever this turns out to be. Last- I really wanted to buy an xpro1 which can be very nice as is but for $1700 and its AF issues that would not be a sound move unless FF does some firmware releases. Lets move up Photokina so I can get a new box + glass……. good luck to all
I prefer the sloped top plate of the X Pro 1 vs. the straight line of this.
Fingers crossed this faster AF comes in the form of firmware…I feel like that has to be the case since A) Same sensor, same contrast detection AF. B) Half the equation of AF is in the lens sooooo
The popup flash maybe functional due to the added height, but aesthetically it is just ugly! I am surprised the fuji would choose this design like many other lines.
I heard rumors that there will be a big firmware update very soon but the source didn’t want to talk too much.
here is what i heard: X-Pro 1 Firmware update, Sept 5th.
1. In low-light condition, the X-Pro1 will be much faster in Auto Focus mode; /
2. The speed of the image coming into focus when turning the focus ring has been vastly improved; and /
3. At maximum speed the X-Pro1 can now write to SD memory card twice as fast as before.
Wonder if the lcd will be a WYSWYG like most compacts? That’s my only complaint about the x100, the lcd does not show the exposure in manual mode.
