The competition









Image: Leica M9, Sony NEX-7

Logically, the Fujifilm X-Pro1’s main competitor will be the Leica M9. The Fujifilm camera has all the retro looks and image quality to match the Leica, but is £3,600 cheaper. With the Leica mount adapter due out later this year, I’m sure there will be more than a few owners of a Leica M-series film camera buying a Fujifilm X-Pro1 to make use of their Leica glass.

Sony’s NEX-7 may also offer some competition. It has a higher resolution of 24 million pixels, and is physically smaller. It also has a lot of direct controls for exposure settings, and a 2.4-milion-dot electronic viewfinder. The camera is around £1,100, including kit lens, so is about £300 cheaper than the X-Pro1 body only.
