Fuji M-mount comes in April, Fuji X entrly level camera sometimes later.

Photographyblog (Click here) reports that Fuji will release the new M to X mount adapter in April. That’s just one month after the X PRO 1 will hit the stores. Dpreview (Click here) has been told by Fuji that one more less expensive X mount camera will come in future. AT the same time they gave two more interesting info:
1) New X10 firmware will be released in February to fix the ‘white-orb’ issue.
2) Fujifilm Digital Imaging director Adrian Clarke said that when launching the X100 they didn’t know who was going to buy the X100: “but twice as many people bought them as we expected.

I am wondering how this “entry-level” X camera will be. Probably it will have an optical viewfinder only, and be a bit smaller. But I cannot imagine it to be much cheaper than the X PRO 1. Cannot image Fuji to use cheap plastic to lower the cost of the body.

Fuji released the official lens roadmap for 2012-2013. This roadmap isn’t definitive and aperture of the lenses have still not be defined. And three lenses are still missing on that roadmap (Fuji said there will be nine new lenses in total). Yesterday a Fuji “lady” from the Fuji booth said the 14mm lens would have a f/1.4 aperture. I am almost sure she made a mistake. If Fuji would REALLY made it f/1.4 I would be damn surprised. The fasted wide angle lens I know is the Leica 21mm f/1.4 and it costs around…$7000!
