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!

Ken Rockwell loves the X-E1 and says you don’t need the X PRO 1 anymore.

It’s not a secret that Ken Rockwell (Click here) likes Fuji cameras. He writes about the X-E1: “I see no more reason for the old Fuji X-Pro1, unless you’re really addicted to the optical finder. Everything else about the X-E1 appears to be superior, with a built-in flash and less size and weight, for less money. I returned my X-Pro1 because its finder had a defective design that rendered it out-of-focus unless you bought an external diopter for it. I’m hoping this is fixed in the X-E1.

The question now is, if the X-E1 is better than the X-Pro1 than are we going to see a new X PRo 2 anytime soon?

The Black X-E1 with 18-55mm kit lens still on top of the Amazon rankings!
