Fujifilm X-E1 Mirror-less to be released this Autumn

Fujifilm X-E1 Mirror-less bodyFujifilm X-E1 Mirror-less body + lens
The Fujifilm X-E1 looks very similar to the X-Pro1 which is a major hit Mirror-less camera by FujiFilm.However, there now seems to be a pop-up flash included and an electronic view finder rather than the clever hybrid optical and electronic types as found on the X-Pro1 and X100.

There are few details at the moment. According to sources the X-E1 will sit in Fujifilm's range just below the X-Pro1. What is interesting is that the lens attached to the mirrorless camera, and also leaked as a stand-alone pic, is a f/2.8-4 18-55mm. All previous pro lenses were primes, so it seems that the manufacturer is trying to break into a new market.

Here are some of the specs of X-E1

16MP sensor as in the X-Pro1 (with max ISO of 25,600)
6 fps
Light magnesium body
Improved AF speed
Price: bellow $1000
To be released before Christmas
Same video recording capabilities as the X-Pro1
Mic input
EVF only (not hybrid as the X-Pro1)
Two colors: black and silver
Pull 25 ISO to simulate Velvia in JPEG mode
