After spending some time using my own X100s, I would be VERY excited about the prospects of a future full frame Big Brother from Fuji. If anyone is going to keep Leica a awake at night it would be a FF Fuji. Unlike Sony who dropped the ball with a 'viewfinderless' FF only to then followed that up with a 'DSLR' style viewfinder which missed the point altogeather. The idea of the X200 fixed lens (35 f/2) would make a real statement, Fuji has the ability and the wits to make it happen. Time will tell but if the rumblings are true and our guess is they are, the comments made at Fuji Rumours and others are music to our ears. Here is what FR had to say ...
The X200 will feature a 24MP full-frame X-Trans sensor, a new fixed lens, faster AF, and better EVF than the X100S, wider phase detection area and tilting LCD screen.
Full Frame (ORS – xjrumo)
24MP X-Trans sensor (NeS)
faster AF than X100S (NeS)
tilt screen (NeS)
new fixed lens (NeS)
new EVF, better than X100S, but not as much as X-T1 (NeS)
wider detection area (NeS)
I certainly feel full frame is a given, and the fixed lens is a more practical starting point technically & market wise. There are a fair few Leica "would be's" who would love to use a 'Full Frame' Rangefinder form factor at a decent price point. There are also plenty of existing Leica users looking for an auto-focus, state of the art electronic alternative. Leica is a brand of quality and style, however their 1990's electronics leaves a lot to be desired and opens the way for some interesting developments. If Fuji launch a full frame X200 with potential for a similarly specced X-Pro 2 to follow, the pie might just be in everyones faces except FUJI.
