    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.

    Getting closer to the real thing? This article mentions a new APS-C CMOS sensor with X-Trans technology developed by FujiFilm.

    Translation of the French article's main points:

    [list = 1][*]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[/list]
    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.

    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.

    Looks very tasty and it also looks as if they are going to do a 3 lens kit with case.

    Time will tell and as long as IQ surpasses that of the X100 as well as having good build quality I will definately be interested.

    Like many others and I reflected these views in a post elsewhere many months ago, I suspected the X100 was a "Toe in the water" punt from Fuji to see if there was a market for a rangefinder style retro camera with modern internals and producing high quality image, it is obvious from the popularity of the X100 as well as other manufacturers who are releasing retro style models that the pendulum has swung back and people are re-developing a taste for "What once was" with the outward appearance and control of an older camera yet with the modern internals and IQ of the latest.

    I would suggest that if this camera is everything Fuji want it to be and it lives up to the hype IQ wise, Leica are going to have to buck thier ideas up - having said that, they have intimated that they will be releasing a new camera of sorts in 2012 so perhaps they are planning on an APS-C model to compete..........time will tell, but they need it.

    Leica might have to postpone that release though if Kodak really do go tits up as it's them that make their sensors.

    Any sensor technology that is good enough for Leica will survive Kodak reorg.

    I'm most curious about whether the lenses have leaf shutters. My gut says no, but I guess we'll find out in a few days at CES...

    Here's hoping.

    I'm more worried about the Tri-X production line continuing to function.
