(RUMOR) Fuji LX10 APS-C Interchangeable Lens Camera With Optical Viewfinder

source:photorumors.com

Photorumors.com is saying that the upcoming Fuji interchangeable lens camera will be called the LX10. It will supposedly have an APS-C sensor and a optical not hybrid view finder. There will also be priority mount lenses with possibly four lenses. An 18mm F2 and 35mm F1.4 are likely.

Now the big question comes from the rumor about the viewfinder. If it is optical, then is it going to be a REAL rangefinder not just a hybrid rangefinder style camera. The LX10 could be the successor to the Epson RD-1.
