(UPDATED) Fuji specs and images. Puts pressure on m43 (on paper)


Guys, you can’t miss that. I just posted the first real full size images of the Fuji X PRo 1 at (Click here!!!).  I am glad that Panasonic and Olympus will finally get some serious pressure. This will push them to improve and renovate much faster than they did until now.

There are new technical solution that on paper do sound very intriguing:
1) The hybrid viewfinder actually changes the optical view depending on the lens. There Is one “problem” with that solution. It sounds like it doesn’t work with zooms but with primes only
2) The autofocus mechanism is “standalone”. It doesn’t rely on the sensor. it’s a sort of “rangefinder” af system. Is it reliable? That’s the question.

I think the new Olympus camera will go in a similar direction as the Fuji. Built-in new viewfinder tehcnology, top body quality. The real question is what kind of sensor the new Oly will use.

    I think this is a positive development.

    Fuji is using experience derived from their analogue cameras and why not apply and have a digital solution.
    Lens selection a little limiting and reach not quite enough (yet).

    So what is so amazing about this camera, beyond it being so much more expensive than Sony NEX cameras?

    i paid no less than 1300 euro for my gx1+25mm+lvf2. i also have x100 and i know for a certain x100’s IQ cannot be beat by gx1+25mm+lvf2 and one can only expect the IQ will be even better with the x-pro1.

    true that m43 have nice lineup of lens and i do enjoy shooting with my 7-14mm, sure it probably won’t have the touch screen that my 7 year old daughter love to focus and shoot on, but at 1300 euro price point, i will definitely choose the new fuji over m43 and i’m sure i don’t belong to the minority. so yes the new fuji will be a threat to nexs AND m43.

    (yes i will keep all my m43 gears after buying the new fuji, but i doubt i will be investing more money on m43.)

    @will its actually much cheaper than nex7 with zeiss 24mm 1.8(the camera and lens you should be compare to, spec wise). and at 1300 euro its actually in similar price range as gx1 + lvf2 +25mm 1.4.

    don’t forget there is no anti aliasing filter on the new fuji sensor, pretty amazing wouldn’t ya think? ;)

    what is the disadvantage of an anti-aliasing filter?
