First Leaked Photos of the Fujifilm X-E2?

Patrick over at Fujirumors has published what appear to be the first leaked photos of an upcoming Fujifilm X-E2. Sent to him by an anonymous source, the photos suggest that the camera will have a frontside that’s nearly identical to the X-E1.

The backside, however, may have some nice changes and upgrades.

Here’s what the current X-E1 looks like on the back:

As you can see, it seems that Fujifilm is moving the placement of the Q button, adding an Fn2 button, and stretching out the LCD screen.

Here’s a simple spec list of the camera, according to Fujirumors: a 16 megapixel sensor, a 3-inch LCD screen, a lens modulation optimizer, speedy 0.08 second autofocusing, and an EXR II image processor.

The X-E1 saw a $200 price drop in early October, so it does appear that an X-E2 is just around the corner.

    Ok, the XE1 has only been out around 1 year. Why would they upgrade it, before releasing the X-Pro2?

    Looks the same with XE1. Based on its specs, it has no tilt screen / no touch screen. Sounds not a good thing, i think.

    Coz Fuji consider X-Pro 1 as Canon EOS 7D

    Well, they may be close to running out of XE1 inventory, so you might as well upgrade it before you crank up the production line again. Or the X-Pro2 might have some new features still in development. Nikon upgrades consumer cameras a lot, while the pro bodies are upgraded less often.
