I was really wondering how that nice hybrid viewfinder from the X PRO 1 could work best with third party lenses. Now Egami (Click here) found a brand new Fuji patent describing how the electronic viewfinder can analyze the focal length of the third party lens to adjust the optical viewfinder. The patent is written in Japanese so I hope the google translation tool didn’t fool me :)
One more news: Adobe just launched the Lightroom 4.1 Release Candidate which supports many new cameras like the Olympus E-M5. But there is no Fuji X PRO 1 support. Adobe added a note:
“The Lightroom and Camera Raw team is well aware of the new X-Pro1 camera from FUJIFILM. We are currently developing raw support for the X-Pro1 and look forward to providing it as soon as support is complete. Thanks for your patience on this topic.“
