While I am working ot get some details on the next Fuji announcement in Spetember here is a roundup of X PRO 1 links sent me by our readers. Enjoy!
Short X PRo 1 review at Digitaljournalofphotography. X-Pro1 + Super-Elmar-M 18mm F3.8 ASPH. at DC.watch (Translation here). Kevin Sparrow review at Prollysnotprobably. Streets of Ottawa by John Smith. More Night Shots in Ottawa with the Fujifilm X-Pro-1 by John Smith. Voigtlander 35 + Fuji Xpro 1 for street photography at TheF8blog. Preview at Outbackphoto.
If you still need to check out for new X PRo 1 reviews here is a a triple link. Let’s start with the most famous website:
Dpreview posted the very long X PRo 1 review: “the X-Pro1 is a very good camera, with excellent design and image quality, let down by a few small but significant operational bugs and quirks.”
Neocamera: “Paired with one of the three excellent XF-mount lenses, the X-Pro1 produces some extremely sharp large prints up to ISO 6400 and even remains usable for mid-size prints until its maximum ISO of 25600.”
Luminous Landscape posted an interesting Hands-on: “Their designs are brilliant, build quality is very high, and optical quality second to none. Now they just need to refine their functional execution to have class-leading products.”
In short, what they all are saying is that we need an X-PRO 2 that fixes the clear AF and menu issues :)

Photozone published the 35mm f/1.4 X lens test: “Technically it may not be a perfect lens but it is capable of delivering very nice results. The center quality is breathtaking even at max. aperture whereas the outer image field is a bit soft here. From a real world perspective this is surely acceptable because you are rarely really after edge-to-edge sharpness when shooting at f/1.4.”
SLRgear tested another FUji lens, the 60mm macro: “exceptional performance, even when used wide open. If you’re an X-Pro 1 user with an interest in macro photography, there really aren’t a lot of choices, so this is a must-buy.“

The well known lens review website Photozone reviewed the first Fuji X lens, the 60mm macro f/2.4: “The Fujinon XF 60mm f/2.4 R macro is the best of the three initial lenses for the X-mount.”
And SLRgear tested the 18mm f/2.0 lens: “very good performance, even when used wide open, and excellent performance when stopped down just a little. If you’re an X-Pro 1 user, this is another lens that definitely deserves a place in your bag.“
