Fujifilm has a history of making beautiful cameras, particularly in its X series. The X100 and X10 are more than just pretty faces, too — both deliver gorgeous pictures and video. They're designed more as companions to a DSLR rather than your one and only camera, though, and the entry price is high for that kind of camera. In January at CES, Fujifilm stole the show by releasing a camera that could be your one and only: the X-Pro1, which pairs the company's flair for retro design with interchangeable lenses.

Technically speaking, there's a lot to like about the camera in addition to its lens mount or its good looks: a 16-megapixel APS-C X-Trans sensor that Fujifilm claims could rival many full-frame DSLRs, ISO range up to ISO 25,600, a hybrid optical / electronic viewfinder, a 1.23-million-dot LCD, and Fujifilm's fast EXR processor. It's beautiful inside and outside, but Fujifilm's latest won't come cheap: the body alone costs $1,699, and lenses cost upward of $600 apiece. It's no $30,000 Leica, but the X-Pro1 is clearly not for the the light of wallet. Is it worth the price? Read on.
