I'm not sure about the focusing abilities or price point on this bad boy, but they are moving in the right direction.
Fujifilm X-Pro1 preview! - big sensor ILC, retro style, fast primes, cool tech!

Hi everyone, I'm back with another in-depth preview of a brand new camera - this time the unashamedly high-end #Fujifilm #X-Pro1, which is targeted at all those pros who feel mirror-less ILCs so far have been aiming a little, shall we say, low!

If you're familiar with the earlier Fujifilm X100, you'll already know about the retro styling with shutter speed and exposure compensation dials along with a manual aperture ring around the lens. The new X-Pro1 also inherits the X100's innovative hybrid rangefinder system which really is something to behold.

But two things really make this camera extra-specially interesting: the first is a new interchangeable lens mount (complete with three lovely new fast primes) and the second is a brand new type of sensor which claims to out-perform full-frame DSLRs like the Canon 5D Mark II.

So all you nay-sayers who rejected existing ILCs on quality or lack of fast prime lenses better take a look. Similarly anyone thinking of buying a Leica rangefinder may find the X-Pro1 a relative bargain.

In my preview I've explained all the new features, critiqued the aspects which don't look so good and compared it to Sony's NEX-7 and the Panasonic GX1. As always I'd love to hear what you think!

PS +Trey Ratcliff , +RC Concepcion , +Todd Sisson , +Bjorn van Sinttruije , +Athena Carey and all you other ILC-curious folk, do you reckon Fujifilm's nailed it?
