cesaregal: It's a professional wide-angle lens.
We need a professional 4/3 camera
to balance weight and quality.

I hope Schneider give us a
professional wide-angle lens,
autofocus, for FF (Nikon/Canon).

What is your definition of professional m4/3 camera body ?

Calvin Chann: Sorry, but for me the colour of the thing is a serious point. I haven't bought any of the Oly lenses that are mentioned in this preview, because of the colour of the things. All my camera bodies are black (except a white G3 that I bought by mistake) and to me, a silver lens on a black body is not discrete enough.

Looks like Oly have lost me as a potential customer!

Been shooting with titanium Contax G bodies and lenses for a good while now.....never had issues with using this combo with candid shots.....

So a $3,500 body plus mega $$$ for a prime lens is only 1% better than Oly OMD which goes for $1,650 with lens included ? Hmmm...help me with math here...

jj74e: am i the only one to not like the x-pro's design, particularly the grip? it looks like a patch sewn onto the body.

Contax might sue for copying the Contax G2 body design

Zeis: Most of the people complaining here are terrible photographers. Hacks, hobbiest, debbie digital & uncle bob and some sad, sad pro's who can't take a decent images to save their life.

Who cares what the technical abilities of these new Nikon and Canon cameras are if you can't use them. Theses camera are better than the last round of new releases and people back in the day (so so long ago) and people were creating amazing images with such outdated gear.

My suggestion is to learn how to push the camera you already have and not worry about all this bull people are slinging here in these forums.

Yup, I am perhaps the world's poster boy for bad photographers. I need all the technical I need to make my images good enough to be able to put on a frame and hang at my apartment's wall.

Is there really anything wrong with this ?

So what did it fix ? Is there an option to back it out

simon65: @Conrad567

"I can remember when a good quality film camera cost $2400"

Wow really? Please name that camera?

I recall the very high quality Nikon FM 2 selling for years at around £250 in the UK (around USD 500 at the time).

"You numb skulls will never except that quality craftsmanship has a price"

Come on, its going to mass produced in Japan/Thailand not carefully assembled by an artisan in a workshop somewhere in the Swiss Alps.

Ultimately the market will decide, but I'll wager that in these straightened times Fuji have got it wrong and pitched too high. There're fools. I would have gone in at a lower price to build market momentum, and establish share.

The camera market is in a state of flux and is up for grabs. There's absolutely no reason why Fuji can't be a major player, but not with pricing like this. They're being greedy and shortsighted.

Fuji believes that their X100 sales which was better than expected was the camera that has build 'momentum' towards over pricing this XPRO1 ...

Will wait for some user feedback ...but to me personally the price is ridiculous...

DrawnByLight: You disrespectful punks. Before you mouth off about who the photographers are I would suggest having a look at their portfolio. These are among the first images posted anywhere, hence the number of hits and Christian's server crashing yesterday. I doubt Christian or Michael intended for them to go viral as they did. If you have a look around the rest of their websites you will undoubtedly see why Christian is one of the most respected landscape photographers in Australia and why Michael is a world renowned travel photographer who shoots for Lonely Planet among other publications.

I agree the images are not of the same calibre of their normal work, they are from the looks of them, images that they snapped while getting used to settings and handling, and in all likelihood never intended to even get posted back to Fujifilm. I take the same sort of snaps when I am playing with a new body or lens and I never intend for those shots to win awards either.

Criticism was directed towards the images the link provided. I criticized it.....based on the photos that was presented to show what the new X-PRO1 could do.

I believe that most people did the same.

Do we al have tol start acting like cows in a herd ?

Are we supposed to say 'great job' even though we knew otherwise?

I think you should really change and have a more open mind.

Folks are giving their honest opinion of the images. At least we should respect this.

Fuji is introducing their new flagship camera, DPReview put this on their front page....

The best image was a man chugging down a cold one....

C'mon now.....after a few cold ones, my Sony P&S with image stabilization is a better suited tool for that occassion....

A perfect example of a good camera on the hands of bad photographers. Just plain horrible.
