Dpreview (Click here) just published a short X PRO 1 first impression article: “You needn’t have read this piece from start to finish to see that I’m very impressed with the X-Pro1. From what I’ve seen so far it looks like Fujifilm has avoided re-introducing any of the more egregious oddities of the X100. And while we’ve yet to subject it to our rigorous testing methodology, we’ve not found flaws of the type that plagued the X100. On balance I think it’s safe to say that the X-Pro1 is a camera that gets much more right than it does wrong.“
Sounds all good!!! :)
Soundimagesplus (Click here) compared the Fuji with the NEX-5n and GX1: “As you will also clearly see the X-Pro 1 is significantly better than the other two 16MP cameras at high ISO’s.“

John Smith (Click here) is also testing the X PRO 1. And he got in touch with Fuji to talk about the AF issue: “called Fuji Canada about this AF problem and Gerry, the person at the camera technical support centre, reassured me that Fuji is working on improving the camera. Firmware updates are on the way. I just wish to pass my thanks to Fuji for its concerns for the customers.I was very impressed by the knowledge and helpfulness that I received. ” (via FujiRumors.com).
