Re: X-M1 - X20 killer

I think they just killed the X20 market - $600-$650 market too close to the 550-599 X20.

Add in a lens so you can actually make photographs, and you are up to $1200—1400 or more. If it has an impact, it will be on the $800 X-E1. However, the X-E1 is aimed at experienced shooters while the X-M1 is aimed at being an entry-level to the X-cameras.

Guess the sales of the X20 were not doing so well.

The X20 is a quite different camera, built-in zoom lens, 2/3" sensor, half the price. I expect that one has little impact upon the other.
