Images are starting to show up online for Fuji’s new X-E1 camera, another interchangeable lens camera that will use the same X-mount lenses used by the X-Pro1. I found these two images here.
The second image is showing a chrome version of the camera with the also new 18-55mm F2.8-F4 image stabilized lens. Also no optical viewfinder so no hybrid viewfinder like the X-Pro1 or X100. The control layout on top seems to exactly match the X-Pro1. People are saying that small rectangle next to the hot shoe means this might have a pop-up flash.
No specs yet, no release date yet, no word on price yet but clearly the “E” in the X-E1 stands for “Entry level”.
I’m not interested in the camera but could be very interested in this lens. There’s also rumors that Fuji might soon announce an X-Pro2.
