Wow:

The lenses include: the 18mm (27mm equivalent) f/2.0, 35mm (53mm equivalent) f/1.4 and 60mm (90mm equivalent) f/2.4.

If those are typical Fujinon optics as from years past, they ought to be smokin'.

Edit:

This appears to be it. Super EBC coating and hybrid viewfinder. It should be a winner.

A nice fast 28mm equivalent is all that I need, and Fuji has that here. Here's to hoping I can use my vintage lenses though (via adaptation).

Very sad that they don't include a 23mm lens (35mm equivalent)...

Without that lens, I probably won't get the system as I need 35mm for general walk around and environmental portrait, and I want the 90mm equivalent for portrait. So, I have a good excuse to hold the spending until they have the lens available.

Nothing that i could find, the thing itself has not been officially release. But i heard the lenses are gonna be expensive (something to do with the shutter being in them). As much as this makes me very very happy one still must take it with a pinch of salt....

If this is to be believed, 600€ for each lens...

I got this images and specs from the latest February issue of the french Responsesphoto magazine (Click here to see the article). The screenshot you see here on top is actually the very first image of the full and final Fuji X PRO 1 mirrorless and interchangeable lens camera. It really looks like the digital version of the amazing designed Contax G2 (Click here to see those cameras on eBay). Responsephoto camera specs:
- Three new lenses: 18mm (27mm equivalent) f/2.0, 35mm (53mm equivalent) f/1.4 and 60mm (90mm equivalent) f/2.4
- Responsephoto says the Camera+35mm lens kit will cost 1.300 Euro. That’s actually just a bit higher than the Fuji X100 price. The other two lenses will cost 600 Euro each.
- Responsephoto says the sensors name is X-Trans! R. writes that Fuji took some ideas from the classica film technology to create the new sensor which will beat the image quality of all current fulflrame sensors! The photosites will be of 6 different colors and disposed randomly, therefore moire will be avoided.
- There is no Anti Aliasing filter on the sensor.
- The lenses are made of metal.
- The camera has the new X-mount. The flange distance will be of 17.7 mm.
- The viewfinder is hybrid (optical and electronic). The optical viewfinder changes the view depending on the kind of prime lens you sue. This again is an idea coming from the Contax G2!
- The autofocus sensor is…external! There is a special AF sensor on the camera body!

Hmm, sounds almost Foveon-like. I wonder if it'll be layered.

Ahh, and autofocus rangefinder! :)

Me too...I have been waiting for a digital rangefinder that isn't $10K for quite a while...the x100 was close but the X Pro 1 is even closer...if all of this is true anyway.

I was planning to possibly purchase a X100 in the upcoming months and seeing this now, all i can say is WOW. IF it's only a few hundred more than an X100, i'm all over it! Can't wait to see more info on it.

Very interested in this one!

I just wish it looked as good as the X100.
