Beautiful shots Robert and Brody.
I took the XP1 out for 2 different shoots yesterday and it did both good and bad. The first shoot was during the day, and while it was inside, there was still enough light to shoot at a decent ISO and it seemed to focus okay enough. Will post a shot or two below.
Second shoot was a complete unknown to me AND at night; so I took both the Canon 5D (with speedlight) and the XP1. Used both - and unfortunately for the Fuji; found it much harder to focus in the dimly lit home than the Canon. I was on single focus - not continuous, so maybe I needed to change that? Not sure really. Shot in JPEG and the files look nice enough, but I would not have been happy at the shoot without the SLR. I'm sure I could get past this with enough practice and some more reading up on the camera, but I kinda expected to be able to replace the SLR with the Fuji. I know that the files will be different (jpeg vs. RAW) but I wasn't expecting the big difference in focus. The Fuji would just hunt and hunt - going back and forth trying to lock on. If I had practiced at all; I would have just thrown the damn thing in Manual focus and been at it (or if I had confidence in the M mount adapter, I would have used the CV lenses!).
Anyway, live and learn. I must say - it's WAAAAAAY easier to carry around with me though. That backpack with a 5D, 28-80L, 70-200L, speedlite, batteries, etc... is a heavy sucker. Throw in the stupid tripod and it's redonculous!
Now, a few Fuji images: two polar opposite sessions here.
