Fujifilm X-E1 Black with 18-55mm OIS lens
ePHOTOzine has reviewed the Fujifilm X-E1 – the premium mirrorless compact system camera features the same 16 megapixel sensor as the X-Pro1, and comes with a new 18-55mm f/2.8-4.0 OIS kit lens, 6fps continuous shooting, Full HD video recording, 2.36million dot OLED EVF, and film simulation mode. Here’s what they have to say:

“The Fujifilm X-Pro1 and X-E1 are the definition of retro digital cameras, and the moment you pick it up, you’ll be reminded of an old film camera from the past. With manual controls on the lens and body it is very easy to adjust settings and the menus and controls are well thought out and easy to get to grips with. The electronic viewfinder is excellent with an extremely high resolution and is great to use, although it’s a shame the 2.8inch screen isn’t larger and a higher resolution.”
