The X-A1 retains the 920k-dot tilting LCD and Wi-Fi offered by the X-M1, and is being launched with an MSRP of $599 with the XC 16-50mm F3.5-5.6 OIS zoom lens - $200 cheaper than the X-M1 cost at its launch.

Just posted: Our Fujifilm XF 14mm 1:2.8 R lens review

Just posted: Our review of the Fujinon XF 14mm 1:2.8 R lens. Fujifilm has been steadily building up its X-system of rangefinder-inspired mirrorless cameras since its launch in January last year, and the 14mm F2.8 is the fifth lens in the family. It's a 21mm-equivalent ultra-wide prime that's designed to match the full field of view offered by the X-Pro1's optical viewfinder. Like the other XF primes it has an aperture ring on the lens barrel, but it also includes an improved manual focus ring with distance and depth of field scales. Fujifilm makes some grand claims for its optical performance; click through to see if it lives up to them in our detailed review.

Fujifilm XF 14mm F2.8 R  review
The Fujinon XF 14mm F2.8 R is the fifth lens for Fujifilm's nascent X system of mirrorless cameras. It's a premium wideangle prime, with a focal length specifically chosen to match the full (21mm equivalent) field of view of the X-Pro1's optical viewfinder at its wider 0.37x setting. This makes it a rather unusual beast, as one of only a few genuinely wide primes purpose-built for APS-C cameras. In terms of design and price point, it's most comparable to the Pentax smc DA 15mm F4 ED AL Limited and the Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 12mm 1:2 for Micro Four Thirds.
Fujifilm delays XF14mm F2.8 in light of XF 18-55mm F2.8-4 R LM OIS success

Fujifilm has announced it is delaying the introduction of its XF 14mm F2.8 prime lens by a month so it can concentrate production on the XF 18-55mm F2.8-4 R LM OIS. The 14mm (21mm equivalent) prime lens is the first in the X-mount lineup to feature a pull-back focus ring that engages manual focus and reveals distance markings to allow use of its depth-of-field scale. It will now start to become available from late January 2013. Meanwhile we've been shooting with the 18-55mm zoom and will include a gallery of images along was an expanded XE-1 preview later this week.

The 18-55mm will be offered on its own or as a kit lens with the X-E1 and adds a semi-fast image-stabilized standard zoom with a linear motor for fast focusing. Meanwhile, the 14mm offers an optically-corrected 21mm equivalent field-of-view and a push-pull focus ring to engage manual focus, revealing a distance scale.
