X100 with X Pro1 sensor?
Jan 11, 2012

Perhaps an "X200" down the road? The X100 sensor is the same size as that in the X Pro1. Why not put it in the next generation X100, along with the improved buttons and dials?

I love my X100. However, when I want an interchangeable lens camera, I go to my 7D with my various primes and zooms. There is a point, at least for me, where if I am going to commit to the bulk of a camera and the baggage of assorted lenses, well I am going to want a SLR to see through the lens, along with all of the other goodies in my Canon kit.

While I think the X Pro 1 is incredibly sexy, etc. the X100 fills the niche for me. I had a Panasonic L1 when it first came out, so I know something about what works — at least for me. (bought a bunch of Zeiss primes and adapters, etc. Just too bulky.)

That said, if there was no X100, I would be first in line for theX Pro1!
