Having seen the first set of marketing images for the new Fuji XT1 the fabled weather safe wonder, I have been a little disappointed with its looks. Now I know we should never judge a book by its cover and I am sure this will be a stunning performer. However the X-Pro 1 is in my eyes simply perfect in visual design even with the cute hot shoe flash to trigger your main lights. When Fuji launched the X100 they made a historical classic, when Fuji upgraded it to the new phase detecting sensor then made all the changes to the electronics and internals and left the external alone apart for a little change to the button arrangement and out popped the X100s completely retaining its fantastic classic looks. I do hope that Fuji does something similar with the X-Pro2 when it’s launched. One of the main problems for me is that I am a left eye shooter I have tried many times to switch to the right eye but I just can’t, it’s just un natural. So seeing the XT-1 having the view finder in the centre of the body is not a good thing for me. Having said all that I will still take time to find a local camera store that will have the XT1 in stock and see how it feels in the hands. Its looks very similar in size to my old OM-10 film body. This too has the eyepiece viewfinder in the centre and I really don’t manage to get on with it. Oh well in the mean time I hope he Fuji X-pro2 turns out just like the X-Pro1 mock up shot I found.
