Fujifilm LX camera system seen for first time

Fujifilm's interchangeable lens system may have been seen after a brief posting [images since removed] of photos from what might be the assembly line. The LX camera design seen at Xitek is most reminiscent of the X100 we reviewed, including the corner viewfinder. The body is large and hints that Fujifilm is going for an APS-C sized sensor like that on full DSLRs, and not a shrunken design.

Controls appear to be very similar to those on the X100, including a large mode dial that covers both presets and shutter speeds as well as an exposure compensation dial.

The lens system itself would focus more on the hallmarks of wide-angle, wide-aperture shooting that have defined the Fujifilm series so far. At least three lenses should accompany the camera, including a zoom lens, an 18mm f2.0 pancake lens, and a 35mm f1.4 lens that might be a macro or prime. A 60mm lens might join the group.

Fujifilm has been aiming towards an early 2012 release for its interchangeable lens system but hasn't given a price. The high cost of the X100 could put the LX closer to mid-range DSLRs in cost unless the lack of a built-in lens drops the cost by hundreds of dollars. [via Photo Rumors]
