Together with the new X-Pro1 firmware update, Fujifilm will announce also their two new cameras on September 5th, 2012: the mirrorless interchangeable lens X-E1 and the compact XP1 cameras (there is a chance that the camera will be called XF1).

    X-E1 will spank the X-Pro 1. I purchased the XPro 1 with hopes of using the OVF full time. I shoot people portraits and the EVF is so much better for getting sharp focus on eyes. XPro 1 will be up for sale.

  • Guess, I can not say XP1 as short hand for X-Pro1 anymore 🙁

    They make beautiful cameras. Tip of the hat to the artist in the design team.

  • so if this is going to be $1000, with faster AF, then what’s the point of buying the xpro1?

    • e

      ovf/evf combo.possibly other diff we are unaware of yet.

        shutter lifecycle maybe, anyway, that’s why I just don’t jump in the early adopter mob.

        there are 3 cameras that I think it’s interesting. GH3, NEX-6 and X-E1.

        I wish that the GH3 has a better DR, better pictures overall.
        E-Mount gets some glass! It’s a very urgent matter.
        If the Fuji cameras had better videos – besides the AF/MF thing that they seen to be taking care of. But I doubt that Fuji will improve video very soon, it’s not their priority for sure.

          For me, the most important is fast operation and autofocus. Good VF, ergonomics and manual focus is next down on the list. Any modern APS-C camera has good enough imagequality for me.
          I can’t stand Sonys design and lenses. Olympus keeping to the 4/3 format is a turnoff. I haven’t really been able to evaluate samsung properly and Canon is a joke.
          Thus GH3 is looking to be a winner, especially if it keeps the multi-format sensor. The downside is that I don’t care much for video and going for the GH-series without using the video seems like a waste.
          If Fuji can improve the auto-focus and general operation enough then it becomes tempting indeed. Unfortunately that mean that I’m unlikely to buy into the system until the X-pro 3. My Pentax DSLR will keep for a few more years I suppose even if it is a bit large and clumsy.

          • this is how I feel exactly, if these new cams will have faster autofocus, i don’t really care if it doesn’t have OVF, this camera will be cheaper and more usable.

            I can’t wait till Fuji improves their AF, then they will be definitely the best travel camera.
