The Fuji X-Pro1 has the balance of looks, performance, and features, that edge out the Sony NEX-7 to be the closest “Leica on a budget” camera. This is my opinion, and honestly, much of this conclusion comes purely from a subjective point of view. Some people have told me that they like the color rendition of the Fuji X-Pro1, but prefer the flexibility and features of the Sony NEX-7. Others prefer the form factor and handling of the Sony NEX-7, but like the OVF/EVF of the Fuji X-Pro1.
