Dpreview posted a new Fuji X100 hands-on! And they were very impressed by the camera. They body quality of the working prototype is “absolutely superb“. But the most impressive thing about the X100 is “the way Fujifilm has managed to build a high quality EVF into a relatively compact body“. The hybrid EVF/OVF viewfinder gives “the best of both worlds“.
The X100 should be available in march for $1.200. Sadly both both Adorama (Click here) and BHphoto (Click here) do not accept preorders anymore! You can still sign up at Amazon (Click here) to be notified when it becomes available for preorder.
UPDATE: There is one more hands-on at Akam.no!
There are three reasons why we talk about that camera on 43rumors:
1) Fuji is part of the Four Thirds product
2) We were told by an anonymous source that Fuji is getting help from one of the current Micro Four Thirds members (which is making some part of the cameras).
3) Because many 43rumors readers do like innovative concepts and well made cameras and I hope Panasonic/Olympus will take notice of our interest to make a DMC-LC1 or Olympus 35RC version fo the X100 (of course with interchangeable lenses!) :)
