Fujifilm is jumping into the mirrorless game with the X-Pro1 a Leica-style rangefinder with a selection of fast primes. It's certainly not for everyone, but street shooters and enthusiasts will appreciate both it's retro beauty and price tag (compared to Leica's M9). The X-Pro1's viewfinder is both optical and electronic, and the shutter is close to inaudible. This is also the first time Fujifilm has scaled their sensor technology up to APS-C; the new X-Trans sensor doesn't have an anti-aliasing filter and instead relies on random pixel arrangements. This reduces moire and yields images that, Fujifilm claims, include noise that's closer to film grain. The results are in, too, and the X-Pro1 outperforms all its APS-C brethren in low light. The body is quite a bit larger than other mirrorless cameras, but street shooters will love the images this camera produces.
