From what I understand, the X-Pro1 incorporates EXR Processor technology. Does that mean that in order to reap the full benefits of the processor one would have to shoot (M) 8Mp size images, which in the case of the X-10 would be 6Mp images?

Digart: Is the X-Pro-1 truely a 16Mp camera or a 'dumbed down" 8Mp camera? The reason I'm asking is because I just returned my X-10 after I found out that it really wasn't a true 12Mp camera, but actually a 6Mp cam. Of course, the X-10 uses "voodoo" EXR sensor technology, which hopefully is not the case with the Pro-1. :)

IMHO both resolution and image quality are equally important. Case in point, please check out the Canon G1X images just released on DPreview.

IMHO some cons to consider before purchasing the latest FujiFilm offering:

1. No in-body lens stabilization
2. If similar complex EXR technology is utilized as in X-10, beware!
3. No analogue ISO dial
4. Manual focus control electronic instead of manual. May be too slow!
5. A "brick" of a camera, especially after lens is added. Makes me want to return to the use of my DSLR! :)
6. No built in flash
7. Optional ($$$) handgrip may be a must for many shooters because of the size and weight of camera. The camera comes equipped with a small grip-pad, which may not be adequate for most users

Also, it remains to be seen if Fuji has addressed the WDS with the release of the X-Pro 1.
