[News] Fuji XF Lenses for Fuji X-Pro1 Leaked Early -- Available for Pre-order on Amazon!

Most are aware, by now, that 2011 has been dubbed 'the year of the protest.' However, in our corner, it's also the year of the mirrorless camera. As small-sensor image quality is improving and electronics are shrinking, manufacturers are taking advantage of being able to fit slightly larger-than-before sensors into the same pocket-sized cameras. Interchangeable lenses give even more flexibility, and, in the mirrorless format, give consumers a greatly portable system at a relatively low cost. Fuji's new X-Pro 1 mirrorless camera (with a 16-megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor that's supposed to rival the quality of full-frame 35mm sensors) is expected to be announced early this coming week, but the new lenses that will be available for the system have already leaked early on Amazon. If you're thinking of getting the system, you may want to consider ringing in the new year's first mirrorless camera by building your lens set in advance.

Will probably cost close to a Full frame camera as well. You could call it a cheap Leice M8 maybe, depending on the quality of the lenses. I'd really want one, if I won it. But I don't think I would sell my D700 to buy it. Yet.

Noticed that all lenses have at least one aspherical element in them. Very interesting. Fuji going all the way. 

edit. and that the 18mm and 35mm share filter size

i wonder if it will have the amazing hybrid viewfinder the X100 had.

It does :-) Plus it has a completely revised/improved LCD screen coating.
