It was recently confirmed by Fuji Photo Film Co., Ltd. that the early released images of a future mirrorless camera were in fact for the newly developed Fujifilm X-E1. Said to be the little brother of the Fujifilm X-Pro1, the X-E1 will incorporate the same formidable 16.3-megapixel APS-C X-Trans CMOS sensor minus the low-pass filter and is encased in a more compact (30% smaller than the X-Pro1) magnesium alloy body. Completely compatible with the FUJINON XF lens series, the X-mount E1 will take advantage of the three existing lenses as well as the seven announced lenses set to release in 2013. On another note, many will be disappointed to learn that the multiple hybrid viewfinder has been shed for a brand new 2.36 million-pixel electronic viewfinder, but the blow is made less apparent as the new camera boasts a revamped, lightning quick auto focusing system capable of speeds of 0.1 seconds. Available in black or silver, the vintage-styled Fujifilm X-E1 is set to hit retailers this November, and although no official pricing has been divulged, one can expect the body to retail for a premium at around the $1,000 USD range.
