The price I'm estimating is based on the price reducing after it has been out a few months. Launch price i see at nearer £1000Looking at the video and the pdf this is starting to look expensive! You may be right with around £800. Surely they would bring it out at less than the X1 price, which it seems to be aimed directly at, but if they are serious about the quality then it won't be cheap.
Like others I'm sure, I was surprised by its announcement and pleasantly so. If it "does what it says on the tin" then I'd love one.
Yep it's fixed lens only. It all comes down to image quality and the fact that 35mm is what the target customer is used to/wanting. The Leica X1 is £1350 here in the uk and has a fixed 24mm lens and is not brimming with special features, in fact it's a very basic camera but it's superbly built and creates stunning images and there is a market for it. I'm guessing many buy it just because it's Leica so the Fuji will have to be cheaper to get buyers as it's not a Leica. If it were the same price most would buy the Leica....because it's a Leica, I know I would!Very beautiful camera but is it really a fixed lens only? That would be a bit disappointing. A bit of a sheep in wolf's clothing!
