  • While it may not be the best overall camera available for less than $1,000, the Fujifilm X-M1 does deliver the best photo quality in its price class.


  • The mirrorless Fujifilm X-M1 features a big APS-C image sensor that's capable of capturing some excellent images, but it's just a little slow to focus and fire.


  • Ultimately, while we actually preferred the X-E1 to its big brother, the X-Pro1, the same can't be said about the X-M1, despite it being significantly cheaper and shipping with a good kit lens. The lack of a viewfinder is the main problem - for us, it just feels wrong to pick-up an X-series camera and not be able to hold it up to your eye. The X-M1 does offer the same fantastic image quality as the other two X models, though, so if you prefer to compose your images at arms length, then the Fujifilm X-M1 will more than meet your needs.


  • The Fujifilm X-E1 is a solid mirrorless camera with an innovative image sensor, but it doesn't quite have the chops to unseat the Olympus OM-D E-M5 as our Editors' Choice.


  • The Fujifilm X-E1 is all of the fun and none of the frivolity of the X-Pro1. The decision to exchange the hybrid OVF for lower costs will make a lot of consumers happy, but keeping performance at basically the same level is the real achievement here. We loved having this camera in-house and hate to see it go. Anyone whoâ?? s been watching this series but put off by the price should take a second look.


  • Retailing for £749 in the UK and $1000 in the US for the body-only, or £1149 / $1399 with the new 18-55mm f/2.8-4 OIS lens, means that you can buy the X-E1 with a great kit lens for less than the body-only launch price of the X-Pro1 (although obviously this is now significantly less). It also pits the X-E1 directly against the Olympus OM-D E-M5 and the Sony NEX-7, both of which are great cameras, but both of which are quite different in their approach.

  • The Fujifilm X-Pro1 is a nice compromise if you can't afford a Leica but want to approximate the experience and get some stunning photo quality to boot.


  • The Fujifilm X-Pro1 feels like the natural interchangeable lens evolution of the incredibly popular X-100 camera, offering similarly refined, intuitive handling, fantastic image quality, premium build quality and three high-quality lenses on launch. Unfortunately like the X-100 it also suffers from slightly sluggish auto-focusing, awkward manual focusing, slow write speeds and merely average video mode, and the hybrid viewfinder doesn't lend itself so well to interchangeable lenses as the fixed lens on the X100.


  • The X-Pro1 is a camera that's hard not to like - the retro rangefinder look is cool, controls are nicely placed and materials, build quality and overall fit and finish are quite nice. Auto focus and shutter lag performance are good, as is image quality - combine this with ISO performance that, frankly, sets a new standard for APS-C sensor cameras to my eye and it's clear Fuji has done a lot of things right with their latest mirrorless, interchangeable lens offering.
