More and more adapters are being announced for the X mount and here is the next! It is a “Cooke RED Angenieux Zeiss Arri PL to Fuji Fujifilm X-Pro1 adapter” which is right now availbale for preorder on eBay Poland (Click here).
Cnet (Click here) published the full X PRO 1 review: “The Fujifilm X-Pro1 is a nice compromise if you can’t afford a Leica but want to approximate the experience and get some stunning photo quality to boot.”

First X PRO 1 impressions at Pfflynn (Click here): “Overall, I commend the Fuji people on sorting out a concise but natural and comprehensive camera control system. Nikon shooters should adapt to the Fuji system quite easily.”
Ken Rockwell (Click here) keeps sharing positive thoughts about the X PRO 1 system: “This Fuji normal lens is as good or better than LEICA’s best: ultrasharp even at f/1.4 right out to the edges, and devoid of distortion. Ha!”

Digitalkamera.de got their hands on the Fuji X PRO 1 and X lenses. That’s a “Labortest” made with DxO Analyzer. Fuji X PRO 1 Bericht (Click here to read the google translation).
You have to pay to read the full Labortest but I give you a short summary: The Dynamic range is good up to 6.400 ISO and decreases gradually. Particularly the resolution results are impressive (so they say). Up to 1.600 ISO there is no loss at all!
They also tested the lenses. The 35mm X lens is very good but has one big disappointment. At wide aperture the edges are not really sharp :(
The 12mm lens is not as sharp as the 35mm lens (but still very good!)
The best lens is the 60mm macro!
In short, as stated by other reviewers before the X PRO 1 resolution and dynamic range doesn’t increse at all up to 1.600 ISO (and that’s amazing result for an APS-C sensor!). The 60mm macro is very likely the best of all three X lenses. The only not so perfect lens is the 18mm f/2.0. Surprised?
