Riding on the heels of this morning’s preliminary specification and feature set leak from Wells Fargo Advisory comes the added exclamation mark to a day that has been absolutely chock-filled with information. Courtesy of Réponses Photo Magazine, the good folks who also leaked the Nikon D4, comes an “official” first look at the mirrorless game changer, the Fuji X-Pro1.
Additionally, we also get our first glimpse at the three prime lenses that will be announced alongside the X-Pro1 – the 18mm f/2 (27mm equivalent), 35mm f/1.4 (53mm equivalent), and 60mm f/2.4 (90mm equivalent), all shown below:
Reiterating the same leaked information from this morning, the X-Pro1 will pack a 16MP APS-CMOS sensor incorporating a new filter array, and Fuji’s proprietary EXR processor technology. Additional information directly from Réponses Photo are as follows, courtesy of MirrorlessRumors:
- Réponses Photo states the Camera and the 35mm lens kit will cost 1.300 Euro. That’s actually just a bit higher than the Fuji X100 price. The other two lenses will cost 600 Euro each.
- The sensors name is X-Trans R. Réponses Photo writes that Fuji took some ideas from the classica film technology to create the new sensor which will beat the image quality of all current fullframe sensors. The photosites will be of 6 different colors and disposed randomly, therefore moire will be avoided.
- There is no anti-aliasing filter on the sensor.
- The lenses are made of metal.
- The camera has the new X-mount. The flange distance will be of 17.7 mm.
- The viewfinder is hybrid (optical and electronic). The optical viewfinder changes the view depending on the kind of prime lens you use.
- The autofocus sensor is external. There is a special AF sensor on the camera body.
Fuji’s official press event is scheduled for Monday, January 10th at 12PM PST. Be sure to check back for any and all updates regarding the X-Pro1.
