Fujifilm X-Pro1
- custom 16-megapixel APS-CMOS sensor incorporating a new filter array and EXR technology
- second generation hybrid viewfinder
- 18/2.0, 35/1.4, 60/2.4 prime lenses

Fujifilm Introduces First Compact System Camera

...

The new models include the X-Pro1, X-S1 (shipping this month at an expected $800 suggested retail) and a new F series model in the F750EXR (shipping in March at an expected $350).

The highlight of the offerings is the Fujifilm X-Pro1, which is a highly featured compact system camera. Fuji-filim said it will build on the success of the X100 model, by adding a camera that features a custom-developed 16-megapixel APS-CMOS sensor incorporating a new filter array and the company's proprietary EXR processor technology.

The camera also includes a second-generation hybrid view-finder and takes three prime interchangeable Fuji-non lenses, all with fast apertures.

The lenses include: the 18mm (27mm equivalent) f/2.0, 35mm (53mm equivalent) f/1.4 and 60mm (90mm equivalent) f/2.4.

A big YAY for this.
I've been waiting for an X100 with the ability to change lens for so long :x

sounds great, but I'm really hoping a 35mm equivalent will come. they probably don't feel the need since the X100 has it covered.

Focal lengths seem odd. Each of those would make more sense if the length was AFTER the conversion for APSC, not before.

Also, not sure how accurate this is as the XS-1 was announced back with the X10 and is not an interchangeable lens camera.

For my taste the focal lengths are near perfect (ah, maybe I would opt for a slightly shorter "normal" lens). Also it allows the x100 to retain its value as Fuji's answer to 35 length.

28, 50, and 90mm are very traditional rangefinder focal lengths, so they do make sense in that regard. I'm just hoping they come out with the other common focal length, 35mm.

This press release seems to be announcing their 2012 lineup (at least the first few quarters), and since the XS-1 will first ship in 2012 it makes sense to include it.

I'm REALLY hoping these lenses have leaf shutters. If they do I very-well may sell off my DSLR kit for it.

I'd hope so too, because this would ensure (a) that the camera would be similarly silent and inconspicuous as the X100, and (b ) it would enable high flash sync speeds for good small-flash shooting versatility.

OTOH, this would make it difficult to use this camera with lenses that do not contain a leaf shutter unless the camera would also feature some kind of electronic shutter function.

Translation of the French article's main points:

  • Deliveries will start in March
  • Camera kit includes 35mm lens and will be priced around € 1,300
  • Other lenses will be priced around € 600
  • Camera features APS-C sized sensor (crop factor 1.5)
  • Sensor will feature a color filter pattern w/ 6 filter sites per pixel instead of the usual 4 of a normal Bayer pattern; no AA filter required -> higher native sensor resolution
  • 60mm lens has macro capabilities
  • "X-Mount" bayonet system features 17.7mm flange-to-sensor distance, and features a minimum distance from back lens to sensor of 7.5mm
  • Hybrid VF w/ zoom function
  • VF features parallax compensation
Points 5 and 8 sound interesting, and I hope they are correct.

The rather "fat" appearance of the lenses lets me hope they contain leaf shutters.

  • Other lenses will be priced around € 600

The prices will be Euro prices, which include tax, usually at 19 or 20%. This compensates almost exactly for the USD:EUR exchange rate, so US prices will be around 1300-1400 for the kit.

Long ago when the prospect that a Fuji-MILC was in the works, I posted that the new camera might well have a zoom-OVF plus EVF, the same in-the-lens B~1/4000 shutter, an EXR sensor, a new mount...

Despite the arguments that ensured...especially about M-mount...it now seems I was spot on. I also predicted that the new camera plus all the lenses [initially] offered, will cost less that just any one Leica glass...I was correct as well.

With the new X-mount 17.7mm flange-to-sensor distance, there is plenty of room for building shim adapters for M- or E-mount glass...albeit without RF patch, electronic camera functions or shutter.

I would be very happy with a 28/50/90mm equiv. lens array. I had never understood why macro mode in the X100's 35mm equiv. lens was so important. Macro mode in the 90mm equiv. makes far more sense.

I would keep or sell my X100 depending on market condition. My Leica, Zeiss, Epson and M-mount lenses will soon be for sale...along with a few pieces in my Nikon museum.

External AF using the small window above the lens mount?
It has two small "sensors" on each side of a larger "sensor". Very interesting.

Could it be infrared AF? Phase detection?

Nope. The "small window" probably is the AF assist light, and the two "sensors" actually are openings for a stereo microphone. So, the X-Pro1 rather has a video function.
