| p.1 #1 · Fuji X-Pro 1 - the better Leica M9 for the rest of us |
From Reponses Photo issue 239 page 8 Fuji unveils its new X100 digital viewfinder interchangeable lens successor camera. Now with an APS-C size CMOS sensor said to rival the best, mostly because of its special 'random' photosite arangement, no Bayer filter variant, similar but different to Leica's approach. Congratulations, Fuji, for having the balls to innovate intelligently!
(Kudos, also to Sigma, Ricoh, Olympus and Sony..)
I was considering the Sony NEX-7 but the lack of decent lenses is a serious negative compared to the Fuji.
FYI I have posted the page (one page, paper only from Reponses Photo issue 239 page 8 ) - well part of it so I don't get sued for copyright infringement, with a translation of the salient points. This magazine said it had a preview/ leak in december that has been officially confirmed by Fuji altho I could find no such traces on the web.
Note that in the past Olympus also had preferred talking to the French enthusiasts about their 4/3 cams.
