Fuji X-Pro1 pricing announced, lenses more affordable than expected

Fujifilm has now officially announced pricing for its X-Pro1 compact system camera in the US market, and there's good news for those planning to buy a kit with several of the available lenses. Final list pricing for two of the three lenses that have been announced for the system's debut has come in below the initial estimate.
The Fuji X-Pro1 is the company's first compact system camera, and when launched last month, the company predicted pricing of approximately US$1,700 body-only, plus US$650 per lens.
The body price has turned out to be spot-on, as has pricing for the XF 60mm F2.4 lens. Both the XF 18mm F2.0 and XF 35mm F1.4 lenses will actually cost $50 less than the early estimate, however, at around US$600 apiece.
If you're planning on buying the camera and all three lenses, that puts your final cost in at a worthwhile US$100 below the launch estimate.
