Dear Fuji, a pro version of the X-Pro1 please

No need to reiterate the problems with the X-Pro1, see the reviews at bythom.com and luminous-landscape.com. Yes it will cost more but the current body is between "I want to show off that I have money" and "I'm serious about my photography" Yes it will cost more, think around $2500, but the current iteration is more frustrating that useful.

They only missed 2 items:

1. SD = toy, they are just too fragile and unreliable for a serious camera. The pro version needs dual CF or XDC slots.

2. The battery needs to be at least 3 times as large.

They also need longer pro grade lenses. Who is going to want the 18-55 lens, that is a useless focal length range? How about a version of the Nikon 70-180 macro that Nikon made a few years ago, I'd pay $2000-2500 for one of those? 60mm for a macro? Does Fuji think I want my shadow in most of my photos?
