5. FujiFilm X-Pro 1
Expected release: TBD
FujiFilm had one hell of a 2011. The Japanese camera maker, seemingly out of nowhere, reinvigorated its brand with the X100—or, as we like to call it, the Camera of the Year. Looking to keep the momentum going in the new year, Fuji is working on a 16 megapixel mirrorless camera dubbed the X-Pro1. Sporting a retro, rangefinder design, the X-Pro1 will be made of metal and use a series of metal lenses which will all use Fuji's proprietary X-Mount. After the X100 and the X10 we can't possibly see how the X-Pro1 will be a disappointment. Start saving your pennies, kids.
