Fuji doesn’t join MicroFourThirds and makes their own perfect PEN :)

Share

Let me say this: “Damn that is a cool camera!”. Fuji just announced the FinePix X100, a rangefinderstyled 12.3MP APS-C-based camera with Hybrid Viewfinder! The “Hybrid Viewfinder that enables users to toggle between optical and electronic viewfinders and display intricate shooting information right into the OVF” (Source: Engadget). That’s what I call “Innovation”! I hope Olympus and/or Panasonic will show us a similar concept soon (Hey Olympus, wouldn’t that be a perfect PEN? You did awesome rangfindercameras in the past like the Olympus RC (Click here to see the camera design on eBay!). The bad news is that it uses a fixed 23mm f/2.0 lens (The lens itself is gorgeous). There is no price indication yet but you can bet that that camera will be a lot cheaper than the direct competitor the Leica X1 ($1.995 at Amazon)!. The FinePix X100 will be in Stock by early 2011.

P.S: Again, can someone explain me why Fuji uses a fixed lens? Why not make it interchangeable???

Would you love to see such a camera from Olympus and/or Panasonic?
