Fuji news roundup (with first X-E1 test by Brandon Remler)

Brandon Remler (Click here) is one of the first to show us some image samples taken with the new Fuji X-E1. He also tested the Leica 90mm Summicron on the new X-E1 (Click here to see these shots): “The camera works great with focus peeking at both 3x and 10x magnification.  The EVF is bright and sharp!

Two more tests: X PRO 1 test at Focus Numerique (Translation here). Fujifilm Fujinon XF 35 mm f/1.4 R lens test at Lenstip.

Fuji X-E1 may ship one month earlier than expected!

 

If you followed the Fuji X-E1 press release than you know that the camera should start to be shipped in November. But our reader Henry just got an email from Amazon (screenshot on top) saying that the camera will already ship in October. That would be a nice surprise of true!
