What a busy week with Photokina happening, next week so lets jump straight in.

Following on the success of the X-Pro1, Fuji have announced the X-E1.

In fact the electronic only viewfinder in the new X-E1 is an OLED kind, with 2.36mp resolution which is very similar sounding to the one found in the Sony NEX-7. We are looking forward to testing this machine soon, particularly with the new 18-55mm f/2.8-4 standard zoom and 14mm f/2.8.

Review: Sony Alpha NEX-7 and Zeiss 24mm f/1.8

The NEX-7 is Sony’s latest mirrorless camera and it sits at the top of their NEX range. It’s an all metal, APS-C sized sensor equipped machine, intended for professionals.
