Let’s say that this comes from an absolutely trusted source! Fujifilm announces an X-lovers festival and the launch of new X-series cameras on October 18. This confirms the rumors previously shared on Fujirumors about 2 new cameras coming on that day. The trusted Japanese source told me of the X-E2 and a compact camera with a 2/3 X-Trans sensor (XQ1).

Follow Fujirumors on October 18. I’ll live blogging on that day, and one never knows if there will be other surprises ;)

Stay tuned via facebook, twitter and RSS feed

For everyone who celebrates photography“, “the closest thing to perfection“… these are just two of the headlines I remember when the first reviews of the X-E1 hit the web. Since then, a year has passed and the firmware updates brought faster AF, focus peaking and more. Sure, the successor is in the pipeline, but this could be a good opportunity to purchase a camera that has become better and better with time (and thanks to Fuji’s Kaizen business philosophy will become even better). Now here is the latest price drop on the Fuji X-E1 with XF18-55 lens and save $200!

Check the deals out at AmazonUS / BHphoto / Adorama (also exclusive kit deal X-E1+27mm) / Pictureline

The full X-A1 review is online! ephotozine highly recommends this camera. Very good value for the money and:

“[the X-A1] delivers impressive image quality, with low noise right up to ISO3200 and ISO6400 while retaining good levels of detail. Some may even find the results from this camera preferable to the results from the more expensive X-M1. With the introduction of the X-A1, Fujifilm also introduced a number of more affordable lenses, making the Fujifilm X series a much more compelling system. With impressive image quality and a camera packed with features, we would highly recommend the Fujifilm X-A1.”

Read the whole review at ephotozine here. And for a little bit of pixel peeping check out the X-M1 at 12800 and the X-A1 at 12800. Or check out this small comparison of an anonymous FR-reader.

And also photographyblog posted its X-A1 samples here. They seem to confirm the stellar high ISO performance of the X-A1.

I did a quick comparison for you. But feel free to make your own pixel peeping tests and leave a comment. MJr said: “The X-A1 definitely appears to have lots of ‘smart’ noise reduction.” So does it all depend from the settings?

cheers
