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.
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.
