Small with the 27mm lens
Still retro styled
This looks like a very nice addition to Fuji's X line of cameras, which I am very fond of, they are small and light and take terrific pictures with their large APS-C sensors.
The X-M1 is an entry level X camera that gives you Fuji's top of the line sensor (as of today), it is almost as small as their X-20 point and shoot camera and should appeal to people that want to step up their image quality from a point and shoot.
Removed are the old style control dials and they have been replaced with modern consumer oriented dual control dials, the aperture can now be adjusted from a rear control wheel and the tilt LCD will be very nice for shooting unusual angles. It is not a complicated camera, it has been designed for beginner photographers and enthusiast's alike, while giving PRO DSLR like results (almost).
I look forward to the reviews, lets see how the auto focus pans out.
This is one I would like to try, personally I would stick with the Fuji primes, but the zooms they produce are not bad either.
Used with their XF 35mm f/1.4, XF 14mm f/2.8 or the upcoming XF 56mm f1.2 one should be quite happy.
This will not be a cheap route to go, but it will give you super nice images in a very light package.
