[Nov 2011] Fujifilm has added a third model to their X series of premium cameras - Fujifilm X-S1. The X-S1 offers the same 2/3" 12 megapixel EXR CMOS sensor as the X10 offering the High Resolution / Wide Dynamic Range / High Sensitivity & Low Noise options. But the centerpiece to the X-S1 is the Super Electron Beam Coating (EBC) Fujinon 26x 6.1-158.6mm 1:2.8-5.6 optical zoom lens, offering a super range of 24-624mm (35mm equivalent). The X-S1 also offers a 1.44 million pixels electronic viewfinder (EVF) and tiltable 3" 460,000 pixels LCD screen.
