If there’s been one outstanding gripe with Fujifilm’s X-Pro1 video camera, it’s been the absence of zoom lenses; short of French kissing the topic, you could not get the pictures you wish. While there isn’t really much of an option right this second outside of buying the fixed-lens X10, the Japanese camera designer can point out when we’ll see an interchangeable XF-mount zoom lens: fall 2012. That’s when a bright 18-55mm, f/2.8 -4.0 optically supported lens will make its look, along with a 14mm f/2.8 prime. Fujifilm will certainly revert to revealing nothing however primes throughout early 2013, but the center of that year will complete covering the zoomable essentials with a wide-angle 10-24mm f/4.0 OIS lens and a 55-200mm, f/3.5 -4.8 OIS telephoto. We would not anticipate prices with the brand-new glass still months away– but a minimum of you can easily start planning that Sumatra holiday understanding you won’t need to chase after down the wildlife to get a good keepsake shot.

It’s not the cheapest, and it’s not the first, but if you’ve been holding out on picking up an M-Mount adapter for your X-Pro1 with the hope that Fujifilm with launch a Leica-friendly accessory of its own, your patience does appear to have paid off. The camera maker just announced its very own M-Mount Adapter, featuring a 27.8mm distance between the lens mount and the sensor, an aluminum and stainless steel construction, and three levels of distortion correction. After you upgrade your camera firmware to version 1.10 (or later), you’ll have access to an advanced M-Mount Adapter Settings menu, which utilizes pre-registered lens profiles and corrections. The software includes presets for 21mm, 24mm, 28mm and 35mm Leica lenses, leaving two additional slots for adding your own settings. You’ll need to hang in there for a few more weeks — the M-Mount Adapter is expected to ship for $ 200 in June. There’s full specs in the PR after the break.

Hear any mention of retro-styled cameras with exorbitant price tags and it’s hard not to get suspicious. That kind of talk brings to mind Leica’s incessant re-branding of Panasonic Lumix models, or those unicorn limited editions out of Japan that just leave us baffled. But it’s okay, you can relax with the Fujifilm X-Pro1. At $ 1,700 for the body only it’s crazily expensive, sure, but not when you compare to an $ 8,000 Leica M9-P. Besides, it’s a legitimate heir to a strong line of Fuji shooters that includes the much-loved X100 and the more accessible X10. That’s a strong pedigree, and no matter how deeply you peer into its mirrorless aperture, the X-Pro1 should offer up enough technology to stop you being cynical.
Like what, you ask? Well, a genuinely surprising bespoke 16-megapixel APS-C sensor, for starters, plus a hybrid viewfinder designed to keep everyone happy all of the time, and a Fuji X lens mount that already has a Leica M9 adapter available (plus others, like Nikon, if you scan eBay). It all adds up to something special, but before you go tweeting this article to whimsical rich uncles, there are also some complicating factors you ought to be aware of. Even in a utopian paradise where everyone could afford this sip of photographic luxury, it’s far from certain whether everyone would choose it over other interchangeable lens cameras. Read on past the break and we’ll explain why.

Well, that’s the end of that dream for me. I was really looking forward to owning one of these lovely little cameras, but Fujifilm has just gone and priced it right out of my range. Amazon has put up its pre-order pages for the camera and its lenses, and the earlier rumors were true: the camera sells for $ 1700 body-only, and the lenses aren’t cheap, either: $ 600 for the 18mm and 35mm, and $ 650 for the 60mm macro.
Well, at the very least, I’ll get to get my hands on one as soon as they send a few out to review. And the fact is that really, the X10 is probably good enough for someone like me. Someone as poor as me, I mean.
The question will really be whether this price represents a good value for the performance. No one doubts the X-Pro1 is a good camera, and that the lenses will be nice. But Fuji has been moving in a “luxury” direction, and like Apple, they may be able to add a bit of “tax” on there because they know they have a high-end brand. No one questions it when Leica does it, though they do question the quality when they put out something like the X1.
The competition at $ 1700 (with lens, $ 2300) is serious. That’s pro camera territory, beyond even Sony’s futuristic beast, the NEX-7. But Fuji believes their baby has the chops to compete, so we’ll just have to see.

The interchangeable lens camera market grew by one this week, following Fujifilm’s confirmation of its new X-Pro1. The 16 megapixel APS-C ILC may be in fact be a mirrorless model, but company reps prefer that you don’t use “the M-word,” insisting that the shooter stands alone in its own category as a “premium” interchangeable lens camera. And after spending an hour with the oversized, solidly-built ILC and viewing a variety of comparison samples, it’s not difficult to confirm that the assessment may not be far off. The entire hands-on experience was in line with that premium claim — from the white gloves we were required to use when handling the camera to the Japanese design lead taking care to make sure sample models were clean of markings and positioned just right, it’s clear that Fujifilm is taking this launch very seriously, and you should, too. Join us past the break for an early CES look at what may very well be the sharpest mirrorless interchangeable lens camera to date.

Fujifilm started teasing us with talk of its first mirrorless camera with interchangeable lenses and a large sensor back in October of 2010. Since then, we’ve seen leak after leak of a camera that’s come to be known as the X-Pro1. It’s expected to be launched at CES 2012 with a trio of prime lenses.
Well, that didn’t take long. Just yesterday, Wells Fargo Advisors reportedly outed the Fujifilm X-Pro1, a possible successor to the X100 — today, Amazon’s thrown up a trio of product pages for the shooter’s leaked lenses. The product descriptions match the previous rumors to a tee, pricing the 18mm (27mm equivalent) f/2.0 and 35mm (53mm equivalent) f/1.4 lens at $ 500, and the larger 60mm (90mm equivalent) f/2 lens priced at $ 600. Confirmation? Not exactly, but we’ll find out soon enough — Fuijifilm takes these stage on January 9th.
We just wrote up Fujifilm’s CES lineup of normal point-and-shoots, and I noted that there was no sign of the interchangeable-lens X-series camera we saw leaked in prototype form a while back. I expected it to show at CES proper, but it seems that Fuji didn’t want to spoil the surprise by putting the news out early.
Luckily for us, someone else did! French photo magazine Réponses Photo has gone to press with an article on the new camera, called the X-Pro1, and a few sweet new lenses.
The details are more or less as expected: 16-megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor, a revised hybrid viewfinder (i.e. improved over the already-excellent one in the X100), and it’s making its debut alongside three fast primes: a 18mm f/2, 35mm f/1.4, and a 60mm f/2.4.
This camera is really intriguing me. With the improvements to the X100′s setup, a variety of lenses, and a bigger sensor than the X10 (which I liked a lot), this is looking like a real photographer’s camera. I don’t expect it to be affordable, though; Réponses Photo estimates 1300 for the camera and 35mm as a kit. That’s full-size DSLR territory, not to mention the coveted NEX-7.
We still expect to see this thing in person at CES, so be sure to keep an eye on our coverage there.
