... and Canon is ready to present the G1X, a new large-sensor compact camera with zoom:

Quedan al descubierto las especificaciones de las futuribles Fujifilm X-Pro 1 y Canon G1X

It will be a strong competition for the Leica X1.

I am sure Leica is ready to strike back...

How much did Fuji pay for this rather noisy advertising?

How could they forget the distance marking scale on the lens ... again !!! I don't see the point in coming up with a camera with most features that reporters and street photographers would like, but forget the most important one.

Interestingly the advertorial claims it is reminiscent of a Contax, but I think it is a styling copy of a Bessa.

GF670W was announced in 2010, and has been out for a while.

It's not a rangefinder.
It's an autofocus camera.
Why would their lenses need distance marks?
99% of their customers wouldn't know what to do with them.

with a lens flange distance of 17.7mm adapters to M-lenses are possible. I am curios about their X-trans sensor with 6 different color filters??

hmmm, looks like the market will be absolutely flooded with second hand x-100 cameras over the next month... I might just sell mine right now...

1. As expected, overall. Nice to see an f/1.4 prime introduced from the beginning and as the "kit" lens, rather than an afterthought (as in m4/3rds system). Shades of buying one's first Nikon F with 50 f/1.4 prime c. 1965.... ;)

2. Yes, a digital "Contax G." I'll wait to see if Fuji follows the Contax in eventually adding 21mm and 35mm "equivalent" focal lengths (14mm and 24mm). Or even a nice "Hologon-y" 15mm equivalent 12mm. (OTOH, that last can be handled via an adapted CV 12mm).

3. (for yanidel) - the lenses likely CAN be manually scale-focused, using a scale in the viewfinder or LCD (rather than on the lens barrel). See Fuji X-100 finder here: Fujifilm FinePix X100 Review: 6. Viewfinder and displays: Digital Photography Review Look on the back LCD and scale-focus - look on the lens and scale-focus - not much real-world difference.

At least Fuji is including aperture rings - something missing in recent NikCanSony lenses costing more than a whole X-Pro system. ;)

We'll have to see if Fuji avoided the main failing in the G series focus operation - that even when manually focused, the lenses had to reset to infinity after each shot, and then move back to their preset focus distance. Sloow.....

4. Interesting that ReponsesPhotos broke this (along with others) - they also had the right info on the M9 and the original Canon 5D, as I recall, when doubters said "not yet possible."

I'm definitely interested to see how the "stochastic" color pixel array performs, as well as the lenses. AND it will be interesting to see how third-party software (Adobe, CaptureOne, etc.) do when their de-bayerization algorithms have to handle a raw image without a fixed bayer pattern.

Any M lenses compatibility?

Physically speaking - yes. Mount-to-sensor distance of 17.7mm leaves ~10mm of space for an adapter. No AF, or exif data, obviously. No rangefinder - focus will be via the viewfinders, or by scale.

In reality - who knows what problems there might be with corner softness, color fringing, etc. (a la Sony NEX) - until someone tries it.

Fuji owns this new mount, and may not license adapters. Or they may provide one themselves. Or they may set the firmware to not take pictures unless a Fuji-chipped lens is mounted. Depends on whether they see M-lenses as something that grows their market - or competition that will eat into their own lens sales.

Andy,

Isn't that a little broad? The NEX-5N seems to be doing okay in that department. Of course, it's not FF.

Best, K-H.

Isn't the term "PRO" on an apparatus a little presumptuous ?
I did not often see it writes, even on prestigious apparatuses…: Rolleyes:

Fuji S series dslrs had the pro moniker.
Kodak FF dslrs.

To me red Leica logo is pompous.
The elegance and can one say humility of the redless Leicas is missed.

Thanks Andy. I wonder if some sort of AF assistance could be provided by such a body.

The 'Retro' styling is a bit of a yawn even for an old fogey like me, but there seems to be a lot of spare space on the front and top to fit the word 'Leica'.

To write is differently more presumptuous than a simple key of color.
Especially for apparatuses posting a title “PRO” which frankly did not mark their time……: D
