Fujifilm's mirrorless X-Pro1

Fujifilm took to the stage at CES to unveil its X-Pro1, a mirrorless camera that will set you back an estimated $1,700 for the body alone.

Lenses--and there will initially be three of them, though no zooms--will go for about $650 apiece, the company said. The camera and initial lenses are due in February, with pricing to be firmed up in late January.

Zoom lenses won't appear until 2013. At its press conference here, the company said it's aiming the camera at wedding and portrait photographers.

Last year, the Tokyo-based camera maker debuted a whopping 16 new point-and-shoot models, including the FinePix HS20EXR. This time around is no different, with the company letting loose 19 new camera models earlier this week.
