I wasn't expecting this one... it is in the Fuji X-system, with APS-C sensors. The interesting thing is that unlike the X-pro1, which is actually bigger than a Leica M9 although it's also much lighter, the X-M1 is actually the same size as the x10 and x20! In fact, with the newly announced 27/f2.8 pancake lens mounted, the x-m1 is the same width and height as the x20, and one lonely mm thicker. Obviously with bigger lenses such as the kit zooms, things are quite different.

I would have liked an optical viewfinder, like the x20 has, but given the much larger sensor and the lens mount in the same space, I guess something had to give. With a 14/f2.8, 35/f1.4 and 60/f2.4, this is a very small system that seems to be able to yield excellent results. I'm not quite ready to jump in - with the three lenses this is about the price of a D800 or D3x - but I'm getting close.
