Fujifilm: more X-mount cameras and X10 firmware coming @ DpReview

"Fujifilm has confirmed in a discussion with dpreview, more details about its plans for the X-system. It also said a firmware update for the X10 aimed at reducing the 'white-orb' problem is due in early February, if not before. The firmware update,

that addresses the hard-edged white discs or orbs generated when highlight regions clip, will reduce but not completely remove the effect. Meanwhile, the company hinted the X-Pro1 will be accompanied by at least one less expensive model.

The company says it sees the X-Pro1 as occupying a space above the level of current high-end mirrorless cameras, such as Sony's NEX-7, but below the level of Leica's full-frame, manual focus M9 rangefinder. With this in mind, it launched the X-Pro1 with a trio of lenses aimed at pro and enthusiast photographers (there are few examples of systems that start without a consumer-grade zoom). It says the 60mm and 35mm lenses require 'almost no correction,' while distortion from the 18mm lens is corrected automatically (we'll look at this more closely when reviewable cameras become available)."
