Hi lovely people of this lovely thread
Lots of amazing pictures in this thread, and I've been contemplating a X-Pro1.
After seeing an adapter on eBay which lets me use my old Canon 50mm 0.95 I have decided that I'm going to pick up either a X-pro1 or an X-E1.

But I have some questions to help me decide, and I really appreciate if any of you could help me out.

If shooting with an adapter and my old lens, I understand that there will be no communication between the camera and the lens and therefore I would have to shoot on full manual, this is of no worry to me. But I wonder how it is to focus with the viewfinder on the X-pro1. Do I have to have it on "EVF" mode or can I shoot with the optical viewfinder?
If I have to use the EVF, should I just get the X-E1?

I think I prefer the size of the X-E1, since I'm after something smaller than my D800E.

Any help much, much appreciated.

Anton.

If you want to get fancy pants you make several.

Camera a - sun
Camera a - shade
Camera a- cloudy
Camera a - my living room.

Camera b - repeat above.

It's great for normalizing colors and its a prett quick one time setup per camera. It's very helpful when shooting am event with bodies from different manufacturers.

Anton,
The XE1 is much smaller than the Xpro1. No way of seeing changes in the OVF when using MF lenses since its mirrorless but to me its rather easy using the EVF which is quite good. I don't need focus peaking personally as I have 20/10 vision but I can see it would make a world of difference for most but don't think it's in the cards for a FW update with Fuji anytime soon. One thing you will see in the OVF on the Xpro1 when using MF lenses , is that after you input the appropriate length for the lens in the menu, the frame lines will change to reflect the focal length you are using.

Anton, I use a Rokkor 50/1.4 with the X-E1, and focussing is relatively easy. And two magnifications are offered, too (the 3x is perfect when hand-holding; I would only use the 10x off a tripod). hth, kl

That kit lens isn't that bad is it? I have been able to handhold down to 1/30th and its sharp as can be.

bigkidneys,

Oh its an awesome kits zoom lens hands down, I pretty much got rid of my primes to simplify my Fuji kit and this zoom is all I need, the IS helps big time

Tough question guys. Buy the 18/2 and hope the XE-1 drops after the new years or just take advantage of the $1,400 deal and get the XE-1 & zoom instead? I usually don't shoot zooms, but it seems pretty awesome. Thoughts?

Yes, the zoom is rather good. The 35 is best but the zoom is very versatile and seing most of your shots, it doesn't seem you need a really fast lens. I had the 18 before and having the zoom pretty much gives me that and then some.

Goin' Out West - Fujifilm X-Pro-1 w/ Voigtlander 15mm f4.5 by brodyl.91, on Flickr

Yea, I don't feel like all my lenses ave to be f14, but part of me thinks i'd put the f2 to use quite a bit. I can;t decide honestly.

They've tested both and have said the zoom is sharper at 2.8 than the prime.... I don't think you'll miss that extra stop. I can get plenty of separation and blur if needed with the zoom.

Yea, I'm sure at some point I'll get the camera and the 18/2 prime, but really with the ISO on the X-Pro1 and the quality of the zoom at 18mm, it seems like as long as i don't mind the size and marginal light gathering difference, the zoom seems pretty exceptional. I have a shop holding on to the XE-1 and the zoom kit and I'm thinking I might buy it and sell the camera. I wish I could keep both the lens and the body but it's just not in the budget atm. Thoughts anyone?

Taken on the X100 whilst riding the subway in Tokyo last week.

We are allowing X100 pics in this thread now right?
