Fuji X-A1

The Fuji X-A1 rounds out Fuji’s X-Series line on the entry-level end with a 16.3MP APS-C sensor and a $599 price tag with the 16-50mm kit lens.

Bearing a striking resemblance to the Fuji X-M1, the new X-A1 appears to differ from the X-M1 by only a change in its sensor. Fuji eschewed its popular X-Trans image sensor found in all of its other X-Series mirrorless cameras and stuck with a conventional, Bayer color filter array, which is presumably what allows Fuji to drop the price $200 below the X-M1.

Alongside the X-A1, Fuji introduced  the new Fujinon XC 50-230mm F4.5-6.7 OIS lens, which should fit well with the lower-end X-A1 and X-M1 models. The XC 50-230mm should be available in November for $399.95. Check it out here at B&H Photo.

No viewfinder, no sale.
