Saw these being posted on digicaminfo - possible upcoming X-E1 and new X series compact.

The upcoming 18-55 f/2.8-4 OIS also makes a guest appearance.

Looks like the X-E1 (only EVF, no OVF) will sit below the X-Pro 1 while I am not sure about the new compact (probably below X10 given the lack of OVF, slower aperture range and buttons?). Hopefully more specs will surface. If these are real, then it might be that both will be announced very soon, maybe at Photokina. Personally quite excited about the X-E1 ... :D

Without the OVF/HVF, the lag time between what is shown on the EVF and the actual scene will become an issue.

if its EVF only, Fujifilm had better be using better EVFs like those found on the nex7 or OMD. Otherwise.... -.-"

Quite excited by the pictures, but it all comes down to the performance and most importantly, price point.

I actually prefer x-pro1. The X-E1 looks odd without the viewfinder chamber... doesn't look classic enough.
no problem...go for x1pro then...every product has its own target customer

Great news..
But it looks more modern as compared to xpro1 and x100..
I find that it is not as retro as before..

Hope to get it to replace my now dead OM-D..

Praying that it will be launched before December..

Without the OVF, it certainly looks a touch less retro, than say the X100. X-E1 looks more like a fusion of retro and modern styling. Still very appealing though. Let's hope the specs and especially the price point appeals too. And as member Larken pointed out, hopefully comes with an excellent EVF.

if Fuji can throw is similar sensor as X1pro into this body, with a price of SGD1,399. I could not care much of retro look.

I hope there will be significant improvements on the AF and EVF's time lag of the camera this time. The market for large sensor mirrorless interchangeable lens cameras is getting crowded with Canon joining in. The opening for Fuljifilm to gain larger market share is becoming smaller and harder.

I hope that there would be a fast silver pancake lens to go with the silver X-E1.

Fuji x-series has always had Leica styling... X-pro1 vs digital M bodies, X100 vs X1/X2...
X100 styling is not exactly x1/2, if u had seen both. X100 resembles old school rf.x1/2 is more simplistic minimalistic
