Specifications, Prices for Fuji's Rumored X-T1

The rumor mill is in high gear in regards to Fuji's hinted X-T1 (the name itself is as-yet unconfirmed) dSLR-like X-mount camera. First it was pictures and now, thanks to Fujirumors, there are specifications and prices, too. According to Fujirumors, this is what the camera will look like.
bigger (x77 magnification) and better (high performance) EVF / (trusted +  anonymous sources)

    *APS-C X-Trans sensor II (16MP) / (trusted +  anonymous sources)

    *support for the UHS-II SD-card for super-fast writing speed / (trusted sources)

    *dual SD-Card slot (trusted source)

    *8fps with AF tracking / (trusted source)

    *weather sealed body / (trusted sources)

    *tilt screen (source who was right in the past, but not yet upgraded to trusted source + new source)

    *SLR-type (Fujica) design / (source who was right in the past, but not yet upgraded to trusted source)

    *WiFi capable

    *ISO  up to 51200 (new source)

    *smaller than the X-E2 (anonymous source)

    *18-55 kit lens (anonymous source + other rumor sites)

    *18-135 will be weather sealed (other rumor sites)

    *additional battery grip / (anonymous source)

    faster AF then X-E2 / (new source) [I think that this source confused faster writing speed with faster AF-speed]

As for prices, the rumors state that the camera will go for, body-only, 180,000 Japanese Yen, $1,800, or about 1,250 Euro. As for availability, the camera is expected to hit stores. Unfortunately, there's no price as a stand-alone on the 18-135 lens, though.

Needless to say, the camera, if these specs are true, will be very impressive.
