The Fujifilm X-mount is a interchangeable lens mount designed by Fujifilm. The mount is used in the Fujifilm X-Pro1 and the Fujifilm X-E1 digital cameras. It is currently only compatible with FUJINON XF lenses, however there are plans to make an adaptor to allow compatibility with Leica M lenses and third-party options from Zeiss and Tamron have also been announced.

Olympus OMD EM-5 vs Fujifilm X-E1 comparison review by Lindsay Dobson: You can't compare the incomparable, each camera is good on its own merit. Also: Many gorgeous images!

"So how do I feel about my new cameras? Well I’m delighted with both of them, but for different reasons. I was more or less able to predict how the XE1 would perform based on my ownership and love for my existing X cameras and my familiarity with the brand. But the OMD was something of a revelation, I really didn’t expect a micro 4/3 camera to produce images which were often difficult to distinguish from those of the Fuji, even in low light.

There really is very little between them. Fuji grain is quite fine and the images are very smooth, but you really only . . . read more

The Gritty Monkey reviews the Fujifilm X-E1, pits it against the Sony NEX-7 and Olympus E-M5, ends up choosing the smelliest one.

"So why the Fuji X-E1 then?

- This might sound crazy to a lot of people, but one of the first reasons why I ended up choosing the X-E1 is because that camera just looks beautiful. It smells like photography, It’s like it’s calling you to take it with you and go shoot something! Whether ugly tools are as good as nice looking ones to craft beautiful art is a tough question, I’ll leave it up to you  All I know is that the form of this camera is almost inspiring.
- I love the dedicated dials to set the shutter speed and exposure compensation, and the aperture settings directly on

Fujifilm X-E1 review at DPReview updated, iso noise charts and early impressions posted: Retaining the X-pro1 image quality in a compact and more responsive body can only end well.

"We've had our hands on a production X-E1 for a few weeks now, and our first impressions are that Fujifilm's promises aren't idle. Autofocus is quicker and more-responsive, and the 'feel' of manual focus has certainly been improved. We're not convinced it can yet match the very best of its mirrorless peers, but Fujifilm has made a step in the right direction, and that has to be applauded. Even more laudable is that fact that existing X-Pro1 owners got all the same benefits when firmware version 2.0 was made available. . . . read more

Fujifilm X-E1 with the Fujinon XF 18-55 mm 1:2.8-4 OIS lens reviewed at Digital Versus: Impeccable image quality and a fantastic zoom lens, but AF speed and interface needs improvements.

"It's no surprise to see that the X-E1 handles noise just like the X-Pro1, shooting impeccable-quality images up to 3200 ISO. Shots taken at 6400 ISO can still feasibly be used too. At 12800 ISO (only available in Jpeg mode), noise becomes a bit more visible, but an 8" x 12" print (20 x 30 cm) will still hold up well with a good level of detail in the shot. All in all, Fuji has done a great job here.
The good news is that the lens is incredibly good! In fact, for taking wide-angle photos, you're better off using the X-E1

DSLR-Check (Japan) runs the Nikon D800E, Fuji X-E1, Nikon D3200, Sony NEX-6, and Olympus E-M5 through ISO noise tests with interesting results.

Clearly the D800E outresolves all others, at any iso sattings, even base iso. However, the interesting thing is how close all the other entries are to each other. This test appear to be in no way scientific, so take it with a grain of noise salt. Click on the chart to see it in full resolution. Here's what Google pransklate has to say:

Diglloyd: Fujifilm X-E1 Has the Same Fractal-Like Artifacts as the X-Pro1, despite color and overall image quality being exceptionally pleasing.

"I reported on problematic X-Pro1 artifacts back in September (and in my original review). This problem remains in the X-E1, and it is one of the few rare cases where the image quality must be rated as unacceptable and unusable. The cause and what is to blame do not matter, but the results do. The crop below is actual pixels— it has not been resized or altered after RAW conversion (in ACR). It has been sharpened, but that does not create the problem, it only makes it more obvious.

Observe that some types of detail are fairly normal looking (ruler marks, eyes, skin, lips), but that the hair and green woven . . . read more

Fujifilm Finepix X-E1 review at Excellent image quality that comes with a steep price, and also, some AF speed and accuracy issues.

"Users can expect the best noise-free images from ISO 100 all the way to 800. From ISO 1,600, some noise starts to creep into images but details remain intact. When you venture beyond ISO 3,200, quality is still pretty good although you'll notice a scattering of grain. ISO 12,800 was the tipping point for us. We were quite impressed by the X-E1's lowlight performance and we think that shutterbugs who enjoy shooting in ambient light such as dark interiors would enjoy using this camera. . . . read more

Fujifilm X-E1 Review at Digital Photography School: Another exceptional Fuji X-mount camera, too bad about the non-tilting rear screen.

"Movies in Full HD 1920×1080 can be shot. While the AF seems to function quite well in movie mode you can’t shoot stills mid video. An unexpected joy (for this film born and bred feller) is the aperture ring set into the lens: as you roll it around, it’s a joy (with the 18-55mm zoom anyway) to see the lens aperture shrink down to f22! How many digicams will allow you that pleasure!
As with some other models, the XE-1 can shoot high quality motion panorama stills, sized up to 5120×1440 pixels. It’s an

Fujifilm Finepix X-E1 review at TrustedReviews:

"While it might be tempting to think of the X-E1 as a stripped back X-Pro1, that does it something of a disservice in that the X-E1 is a great camera in its own right. Gifted with the same premium grade construction and finish, the X-E1 feels more refined and balanced than it’s more expensive sibling. While some may lament the removal of the hybrid viewfinder found in the X-Pro1, the truth is that the X-E1’s sharper, crisper EVF more than makes up for this, though the rear screen remains, at 2.8in and 460k-dots, somewhat underpowered for a camera of this price. Our only other issue is the . . . read more

Fujinon Super EBC XF18-55mm f/2.8-4 R LM OIS lens review at Photo Review

On the X-E1 body the review lens provides fast, quiet and smooth auto focusing, while also handling smoothly for manual focusing. It was possible to focus very accurately in manual mode, particularly with the viewfinder, although the monitor was also usable, despite its relatively low resolution. Subjective assessments of test shots showed them to be sharp across most of the frame. Image stabilization was reliable for up to three stops and able to be pushed a further stop (or more) if you're prepared to tolerate some misses.
Imatest showed it to be capable of matching – and at times exceeding – expectations for the X-E1's 16-megapixel sensor, with best performance between one and three f-stops smaller than the maximum aperture. The graph below shows the results of our Imatest tests at the four indicated focal lengths.

Fujifilm finepix X-E1 review at What Digital Camera UK: "Α camera that looks the part, handles well and delivers images beyond what its price may suggest."

"Similar in size to the X100, and combined with a similar premium finish that won over so many fans to Fujifilm's retro-inspired compact, the X-E1 manages to feel more refined and balanced as soon as you pick it up compared to the rather chunky X-Pro1. And while it forgoes the smart Hybrid viewfinder of the X-Pro1, the payback is the sharper, crisper EVF in the X-E1 that more than makes up for this, though you could feel a little short-changed with the fairly underwhelming rear screen. . . . read more

Fujifilm X-E1 review at Ephotozine: Styling from the past with a modern feature set, but lenses are few and overpriced.

"The Fujifilm X-E1 is more compact than the X-Pro1, and also 100g lighter, but it is still quite a large camera, and feels extremely well built. Focus speed and responsiveness is good, and the camera takes excellent photos with extremely impressive noise performance, with a good 18-55mm kit lens with built in optical image stabilisation. Although the price is still quite high compared to the competitors with many of them available for less money with kit lens. The X-E1 is available for £729 body only, which is good value for money, however, each Fujinon lens available is around £425+ so the . . . read more

A trip to Italy with the Fujifilm X-Pro 1, from a Olympus E-M5 shooters point of view: Oly good but Fuji best, but not always, especially if image quality is not your sole consideration.

"Overall I was not impressed using the X-Pro 1 with firmware 1. In fact if I purchased the system I would return it right away and buy a beer to cry into. The photo quality is great, the color is good but the areas that the Fuji fails in…well it really fails.

Am I happy with the results of the X-Pro 1? Kinda..

The poor operating performance of firmware version 1 really soured my enjoyment of this camera. I did have the opportunity to upgrade the camera and lenses to firmware version 2 which to the credit of Fuji is much faster then . . . read more

Fujifilm Finepix X-E1 review by Bert Stephani: Good enough to redesign my gear bag.

"I keep being impressed by the way the Fujifilm sensor renders skies and clouds. There’s a lot of detail in the RAW-files that can be recovered in post processing. I know there are still some issues with the Fuji files in Lightroom (4.2). Usually I don’t worry too much about it as the problems are barely noticeable unless you pixel peep. But in situations like with these pictures you sometimes get these white outlines around objects like the wind turbine on the right when you try to push the RAW file. If you ease back on the post-processing, it’s gone but I’m sure Adobe hasn’t unlocked the full potential of the Fuji RAW files yet. I hear Fuji and Adobe are working together on providing better results, let’s hope they get it right soon." . . . read more

Kevin Mullins Fujifilm X-Pro1 review, 6 months in: Quite simply it’s a marvellous camera, rolled into a little portable box. The optics are wonderful, the weight and portability are excellent.

Kevin Mullins is a well estabilished pro photographer that has seriously began working on assignments with the X-pro1 nad his 3 Fujinon lenses, the XF 18mm, 35mm and 60mm macro.

"The camera really has great image rendering and performance in low light and I’m comfortable using it at 6,400 ISO where necessary.  I’m interested to see where the new Fuji X-E1 takes the X range in terms of performance and any improvements (or, as I presume, its effectively an X-Pro1 without and OVF).

In summary, after six months of use, the X-Pro1 remains a primary camera for me for my wedding photography work.  I don’t see this changing, even with the introduction of new Canon DSLR’s.  Quite simply it’s a marvellous camera, rolled into a little portable box.  The optics are wonderful, the weight and portability are excellent.

Battery life and start-up time have been improved with recent firmware updates but could perhaps have a little more legs in them.  I’d like to see a minimum shutter speed added and I’d also like to see an adjustable dioptre.  Perhaps, even in future cameras I’d like to see a built in wi-fi module as this would allow creativity and communications combination whilst out travelling or shooting street photography. . . . read more

Fujifilm X-E1 review at SteveHuffPhoto: The closest thing to perfection to come along since the dawn of the electronic viewfinder, large sensor camera.

"The XE1 feels mature. I think Fuji has learned a lot over the last year from the release of the x100 and XPro1, and they’ve done a good job listening to feedback from the photographers out there using their cameras. Overall operational speed on the XE1 is good; not blazing fast like a high-end DSLR, but certainly fast enough for many of us. It’s less fiddly than the x100 (keeping in mind I’ve enjoyed the x100 immensily!), and from what I hear from XPro1 . . . read more

Fujifilm X-E1 review at DigitalRev TV: Cheap and tasty, just like a pizza.

Review done by Mario and Luigi, and yes, there are mushrooms involved: 

"We take a look at Fuji's latest "X camera" - the X-E1. It looks like the X-Pro1 because it is essentially a lightened version. Without that hybrid viewfinder, will this seemingly "8-bitified" version be as interesting a camera as they other Fuji "X cameras"?"

Fujifilm X-E1 review at the TechRadar: An extremely interesting proposition, other manufacturers must take notice.

"The premium end of the compact system camera market is now looking extremely interesting. This new camera competes much more closely with the Olympus OM-D and Sony NEX-7 than the Fuji X-Pro1 was able to. As such, other manufacturers are likely to carefully watch Fuji's proposition.

Currently, Nikon and Canon don't have anything in this niche segment of the market, while Panasonic's cameras arguably . . . read more 10 things you need to know about the new Fujifilm X-E1

"As with other cameras in the X series, Fujifilm has put a lot of effort into the design of the X-E1. It will be available in two colour variations. One is pure black, which it believes will appeal mainly to photojournalists and street photographers, who want something more subtle. The other is black and silver, and is designed to appeal to those wanting to make a statement about their camera choice.

Fujifilm announces two new X mount lenses.

The Fujinon XF 14mm F2.8 R and 18-55mm F2.8-4 R LM OIS are the latest additions to the X mount lens range, bringing the total lens count to 5. We'll expect these lenses to show the usual treats of Fujinon lenses, like excellent optics and robust build quality

FujiFilm FUJINON XF35mm f/1.4 R lens review (tested with a Fujifilm X-Pro1) at Photo Review: Excellent performance, and robust build quality.

"With JPEG files from the X-Pro 1 camera, the review lens produced the highest resolution figures of the three  XF lenses we tested. Resolution in our Imatest testing exceeded expectations between f/2.8 and f/5.6, with f/8 just falling short of the f/2.8 figure, probably as a result of diffraction.

There was a noticeable drop in resolution from f/8 but resolution remained acceptably high up to f.16 and produced acceptably sharp images. Corner softening was less evident than with the XF18mm f/2 R lens and the lens delivered excellent flatness of field from about f/2.8 through to f/16. The graph below shows the results of our Imatest tests.

Lateral chromatic aberration remained towards the lower end of the 'negligible' band all the way from f/1.4 to f/16. In the graph below, which shows the results of our Imatest tests, the red line marks the boundary between negligible and low CA. . . . read more

Fujifilm X-Pro 1 Tips and Tricks: The Basics, by Petteri Sulonen.

"I got a few requests for a "how-to" article on the Fujifilm X-Pro 1. When I started to write one, it quickly got out of hand. There's a lot to say about this camera. Too much for a single post. I think such an article is needed, though, because this is a bit of an unusual beast, and going by the talk on the DPReview forums, there are a quite a few people who are somewhat confused by it.

 So I decided to write not one, but several articles. I don't know if I'll ever get around to writing the others, but here's one, anyway—the basic approach to getting to know the Fujifilm X-Pro 1. If you're considering this camera, this might be worth a read too, because it might turn out it's not the camera for you after all. It is a special-purpose instrument which excels at one thing and can handle a quite a few others, but there are cameras out there that are better suited for almost any of those other things. . . . read more

FujiFilm FUJINON XF18mm f/2 R Lens Review (tested with a Fujifilm X-Pro1) at Photo Review: Excellent performance and robust build quality, as all Fujinon prime lenses.

"The review lens produced excellent results in our Imatest testing, based on JPEG files from the X-Pro 1 camera. Resolution exceeded expectations for the sensor's resolution across a relatively wide range of apertures, from f/2.8 to f/5.6, with f/4 just pipping the post with the highest resolution.

Diffraction began to kick in at f/8 but resolution remained acceptably high at f.16 and produced acceptably sharp images. Corner softening was least visible at f/5.6, although corners remained fairly sharp at f/8 through to f/16. The graph below shows the results of our Imatest tests.

Lateral chromatic aberration was mostly at a 'negligible' level, just creeping into the 'low' level at f/16. In the graph below, which shows the results of our Imatest tests, the red line marks the boundary between negligible and low CA. . . . read more

Fujifilm Fujinon XF 60mm f/2.4 R Macro Lens review (tested with a Fujifilm X-pro1) at Photo Review: Superior performance and robust build quality, but not a true 1:1 Macro.

"Of the three lenses supplied with the Fujifilm X-Pro 1, the 60mm lens produced the least deviations between centre and edge resolution in our Imatest tests. This flatness of field was maintained throughout the aperture range of the lens, which spanned fro, f/2.4 to f/22 (the smallest aperture setting for the trio).

Peak resolution was obtained at f/8, with a steady upward climb from f/2.4. Diffraction began to have an obvious effect on resolution at f/16, although resolution remained acceptably high at f/22. This is handy when you need extra depth-of-field for close-up shots. The graph below shows the results of our Imatest tests.

Lateral chromatic aberration was extremely low throughout the lens's aperture range. In the graph below, which shows the results of our Imatest tests, the red line marks the boundary between negligible and low CA. . . . read more

Fujifilm X-pro1 review at the Digital Photography School

"The X-Pro1 also takes another departure mostly ignored by the others: its newly-developed colour filter array removes the need for an optical low-pass filter to solve moiré and false colour issues.

In this array, RGB pixels are arranged in 6×6 pixel sets with high randomness, emulating the seeming haphazardness of film grain. . . . read more
