Looks very interesting. Seems that Fuji is planning a new lens mount for this camera.
The APS-C market is going to get pretty crowded with this new offering from Fuji.

 :Cheers:

Based on the leaked photo, a japanese designer recreated the camera.


it looks very much like X100

No, this is new X model with interchangeable lens.

X100 - APS-C sensor fixed lens
X10 - smaller sensor with attached zoom lens.
X? - APS-C sensor with interchangeable lens.

Yes, Fuji is determine to have a stronger foothold in the APS-C market. That is why they are planning a new lens mount for this camera (model yet to be determined by Fuji).
Danny is right in saying "The APS-C market is going to get pretty crowded"

latest photo update about this camera. officially named Fujifilm X Pro 1.



Info from mirrorlessrumors;
Responsephoto camera specs:
- Three new lenses: 18mm (27mm equivalent) f/2.0, 35mm (53mm equivalent) f/1.4 and 60mm (90mm equivalent) f/2.4
- Responsephoto says the Camera+35mm lens kit will cost 1.300 Euro. That’s actually just a bit higher than the Fuji X100 price. The other two lenses will cost 600 Euro each.
- Responsephoto says the sensors name is X-Trans! R. writes that Fuji took some ideas from the classica film technology to create the new sensor which will beat the image quality of all current fulflrame sensors! The photosites will be of 6 different colors and disposed randomly, therefore moire will be avoided.
- There is no Anti Aliasing filter on the sensor.
- The lenses are made of metal.
- The camera has the new X-mount. The flange distance will be of 17.7 mm.
- The viewfinder is hybrid (optical and electronic). The optical viewfinder changes the view depending on the kind of prime lens you sue. This again is an idea coming from the Contax G2!
- The autofocus sensor is…external! There is a special AF sensor on the camera body!

Nice, very tempting. Was thinking of either this or the X-10 (as I don't really want to change the lens and carry a few lens). However with the launch of the Nikon D4 and soon the D800..... well the equation gets more complex.

I fully agree that Fuji has the best color rendition of all the major Japanese dslrs esp with the choice of various film simulations in their digital cameras. The S5Pro I have been using for the last 5 yrs has much better color rendition compared to the even newer D3S I sometimes use, however you can tweak the D3S' WB to a very fine degree.
I'm eagerly waiting for this X-1 Pro too although being a APS-C crop does throw some water on the enthusiasm.
Personal taste and preferences evolve over years, hopefully not 1 full circle otherwise it means we haven't learnt a single thing.

Just remember with an slr, the most important component are the lens. You can get much better pictures with an expensive lens and a lower price camera than a cheap lens and the best dslr.

And lenses can last a lifetime
