Re: Why not an X-Pro 1s/ X-E1s - there is no free lunch!!

What non of the posts in this thread especially the disgruntled XE 1 users has come to grips with is the XE 1 is a cut down cam. It was designed to give the X pro experience and interchangeable lenses at almost 50% of the cost of an X Pro 1. Now I always believed that there was no such thing as a free lunch. It is standard practice in many industries to offer cheaper products by removing features. In the same way that Celeron chips were slower than Pentium chips and hence if you want to buy a cheaper PC you had to accept slower processing.

There is little difference with those taking a sizeable discount on their XE 1's and now demanding they should have had the latest technology. I suspect the X Pro 1s is going to follow very shortly then  Fuji will have a very well defined product lineup. X20 low end 2/3" Xtrans, XE 1 1st gen Xtrans and slower AF at a discounted price, then the X100s and XPro 1s as the premium all singing and dancing top of the range cams.
