Fuji XPro1, very good APS sensor? (One site's opinion)

    Well, to be honest, the NEX-7 though high resolution is noisy, even at
    200 ISO so saying the Fuji is better does not mean it's better than
    say the D7000's sensor, or the Pentax K5 sensor.


    No surprise what the Fuji X Pro 1 sensor has – a very expensive custom
    bayer variation. This helps to explain some of the high price relative
    to the Sony NEX 7.

    It accounts for the R&D effort Fuji put in to create the new sensor
    and the way to prove it is to look at RAW stills at 100% – they look
    far cleaner at the per pixel level than those from the higher
    resolution NEX 7. Although the sensor is 16MP in the Fuji, the custom
    bayer pattern and lack of anti-aliasing filter means it performs more
    like a 24MP standard CMOS in terms of real resolution, but with none
    of the drawbacks of noisy high ISOs.
