Fuji X PRO 1 gets price and preorder option. A serious OM-D contender?

Share

There is now a final price and preorder option for the Fuji X PRO 1:
$1699 at Amazon US (Click here), Adorama (Click here) and BHphoto (Click here).
Lenses are available too at Amazon (Click here), Adorama (Click here) and BHphoto (Click here).

Along the Sony NEX-7 ($1200) this will become the main competitor of the Olympus OM-D which rumored price is around $1100. I have no clue if the X PRO 1 will sell well with that price. And I guess there will be a tuff battle between the OM-D and that camera. Based on rumors and early X PRO 1 test (See Fujirumors) I guess that this is the advantages-disadvantages list:

Olympus OM-D advantages:
– Cheaper
– Weather sealed
– Better video quality
– Super fast autofocus
– Smaller body (if you care about size)
– Lens line up (and powerzoom lens availability)
– built-in stabilization
– tilting LCD

Fuji X PRO 1 advantages:
– Superb image quality
– Hybrid viewfinder

But this is just a list based on rumors and not yet tested cameras. But I want to hear your thoughts on this!
