A couple of weeks ago I asked you what you’d like to see in the future X-series from Fujifilm as I had the unique opportunity to travel to Tokyo to meet the people behind my favorite camera system. I managed to squeeze all your input and mine into my luggage and headed to Tokyo. Zack, Kevin and David came well prepared too. We received a great welcome in Fujifilm Tokyo head office. At the ground floor they have a very neat camera museum and we took our time to explore all these beautiful pieces of history....

Conclusions

Who is the real target of this camera?  I do not agree with those who say it's dedicated to the low end photographers.  Fujifilm has the intention to broaden the base of its users. To increase the number of users means that the camera had to be designed not only for beginners, but also for those who don't want a viewfinder or for those who don't want to spend, or can't spend a lot for a backup body. This camers is not just an "entry level". The quality is too high and the limitations are so few to consider this camera as an entry level. Everything is reacheable with a phisical button, the dimensions are tiny, but not so small to sacrifice the useability. The tecnology is shared with the bigger sisters.  I think there is still a lot of room to bring the level down, there room enough to have a real entry level camera. Tiny, in so many colours, but also with a less advanced tecnology. 
But wait...is this a rumor? No...this is just the open secret...and there no need to wait that long.

Fujifilm Italia Press Conference: Hands-on with the new Fuji X-M1 & the Fujinon 27mm f/2.8 | MirrorLessons

Fujifilm Italia Press Conference: Hands-on with the new Fuji X-M1 & the Fujinon 27mm f/2.8 | MirrorLessons | Fotografía | Scoop.it

Though spending an entire afternoon at a press conference may not be everyone’s cup of tea, I was more than pleased to have received an invitation to the Fujifilm Italia Press Conference held in honour of the release of their new interchangeable lens camera, the Fuji X-M1. Not only was it an opportunity to meet and greet other Fujifilm professionals, but it was also a chance to get some one-on-one time with the X-M1, of which numerous trial models were on display for journalists, bloggers and enthusiasts to handle. 

Anxious to escape the ferocious hail storm that was raging through Milan at the time, I plunged into the conference room a half an hour early, where I was kindly greeted by the organisers of the event. As if by fate, they invited me to try out the X-M1 while I waited. For about 20 minutes, it was just me, the X-M1, and a rather deserted conference room. The first thing I noticed was that, while compact, it has an extremely ergonomic build. Though it is about the same size as the X20, I actually found it more comfortable to hold, perhaps due to its slightly chunkier build.....

Final verdict

When it comes to shopping for a camera like this, although image quality is good, appearance is still very important. If you’re willing to part with a large chunk of change in return for something that looks beautiful but still delivers in the image quality department, then you’ll no doubt be pleased with the Fuji X-M1. If, however, you’re looking for your first camera in the interchangeable lens category, and you’re on a budget, this wouldn’t be our first recommendation. Although Fuji’s lens and accessory range is limited for the moment, it is growing, and we’re hopeful that it will continue to grow. It’s nice to see Fuji thinking about mass market consumers, and we can hope that the price of the Fuji X-M1 will drop to enable it to compete more closely with rivals from Sony, Panasonic and Olympus....

I never write objective reviews. The reason is quite simple: I never talk about things I don’t actually use or plan on using. So everything I say is absolutely skewed, totally subjective and unequivocally personal. When I was told about the X-M1 camera Fuji asked if I would ever consider using it. My answer was immediate: no. The lack of a viewfinder was a deal breaker, period. But when they generously offered to lend me one of their newly arrived units (along with the continuously amazing X100s) for my Cuba trip, I obviously couldn’t refuse. So in the bag it went along with both the new XC16–50mmF3.5–5.6 OIS kit zoom and XF27mmF2.8 pancake. I’ve gone back and forth on this review, trying to find the right tone. I wrote a large amount of it while in Cuba, wanting to stay true to my initial impressions. But I want to make something very clear before going any further: this isn’t a bad camera. The image quality on its own is amazing, the X-Trans sensor delivering all the richness and clarity its older siblings are known for. But for me — as a photographer who has chosen to work with Fuji cameras — IQ is one part of the equation. In my opinion, for my use, this camera isn’t what the X series is all about. With that in mind, here goes.....
