    The Fuji X-Pro1. True or false?

    It depends what you mean by "best".

    If you mean the best JPEGs out of the camera, then probably.

    If you mean the best RAW files, probably not, because there is no way
    to demosaic them in software that is as good as the camera's firmware.

    There are two new X-Pro variants to come at Photokina. One will be a
    cheaper version of the X-Pro1 with the same sensor, the other will be
    more expensive, aimed at pro users, and have a different sensor.

    I'm keen to see these new models as the X-Pro 1 is so nearly the
    perfect 'rangefinder' camera, and even a top of the range Fujifilm
    X-Pro is going to cost me a lot less than the Leica M10.

    of course there is. what the camera does is just one way to process a
    raw. doing it on a computer can be as good, better or worse, depending
    on many, many factors.

    I'll bite: False.

    Overall, false. Detail is lacking at lower ISO's compared to the
    competition, but at very high ISO's, noise control is so good detail is
    actually somewhat better than some of the conventional APS sensors.
