The X-Pro 1 should cost about $1700, according to the Fujifilm reps on stage at CES. They said the price may change depending on exchange rates between countries. The global launch will begin in Japan on February 18th. The US launch shouldn't be too far after that.
Leaked "accidentally" before its CES 2012 debut, we heard the Fujifilm X-Pro 1 features a new 16MP sensor called the X-Trans. That turned out to be true. The new CMOS sensor was sepcifically designed to work with the X-Pro 1, and it features a new color filter array that removes the need for a low pass filter. The new sensor is only one of four new components that the company had to design specifically for this camera. The sensor also requires a mew, custom chip, the EXR processor, and the company's new, all-aspherical-glass XF-lenses can can exchange data through the custom X mount lens built into the camera.
Though it's not a new or custom component, the hybrid viewfinder on the X-Pro 1 is similar to the X100''s. Also, a magnesium alloy body attaches to upper and lower parts manufactured from aluminum alloy.›
