The X-Pro1 is an interchangeable-lens follow-up to the fixed-lens X100 that's still one of our favorite cameras. Sure, you'll pay more for this magnesium-and-synthetic-leather-clad beauty. But what you'll get in return is a hybrid range-finder that overlays digital info in the eyepiece and boasts a breakthrough color filter, which supplies image quality that transcends the cam's 16.3-megapixel stats and rivals the clarity of larger-sensor DSLRs.
