Fuji has now announced their second interchangeable lens camera in their X-system, the new X-E1 with a 16mp APS-C sensor, along with two new XF lenses (14/2.8, 18-55 f2.8-4 OIS).

The new X-E1 will be available in body only for $1000 and with the 18-55mm f2.8-4 OIS lens for $1400. There are two colors for the camera body, silver or black (but no Raiders edition ;-) All the new Fujis are available for pre-order at Amazon.
