It looks like the excellent Fuji X100 is finally getting a proper successor. A recent article on the Fuji X-E1, written by Tony Bridge (who is sponsored by Fujifilm), mentioned that the replacement for the X100 is due out “early next year.” Given Fuji’s historically solid showing at CES, there’s a good chance that the next X-series camera with a leaf shutter will show up at CES 2013 in the first few days of January.
Moreover, the X200 seems to be getting Fuji’s X-Trans CMOS sensor, which is the same tech that powers the X-E1 and X-Pro1 cameras. The X100 got the nod for 2011 Camera of the Year here at Photography Bay, and I am quite excited to see how its successor will build on the solid fixed-lens camera.
