Paul Farace: Small point to most but important to me... the camera needs a Fujifilm logo on the front of the body! Otherwise it looks plain and unfinished, as do all their cameras of this ilk, except maybe the X-100. And I don't buy that crap about moving stealthily through the mean streets shooting LIFE magazine covers without the criminals knowing you have a camera.

Their stylist should be slapped with a wet towel!

The body design is really what is drawing a lot of people to this camera (being akin to a 35mm film Contax G2.) This camera was initially released in titanium, but Contax grew wise to the professional needs and a black version was released which still attracts a high premium on the used market. I'd certainly agree 'stylists' should perhaps keep to make-up and hair, but the industrial design team responsible for the X100, X10 and X-Pro 1 should be congratulated for the minimalism and quality of body design in these cameras. Let's just hope the electronic innards and practical photographic image quality of the X-Pro 1 lives up to the standards shown in it's exterior design.

This looks a great camera. Something I've been waiting for for several years. What would appeal to me is a Contax G legacy mount. Can you imagine this coupled with a black Zeiss Planar Contax G 45mm?? Portrait perfection. My XPro1 + standard lens now on order - although I guess there may be a wait to couple the old Contax G lenses.
