It's tough to beat Fuji color.

Here's a quick/useless ISO test between the K-5 and X-Pro1.

Both OOC JPEGs, both with NR at the lowest settings. Matrix metering, DA 35/2.8 Macro vs. 35/1.4, both at f/4.

Obviously the K-5 underexposed a little, but the X-Pro1 still would have destroyed it if the exposures were even. Pretty damn impressive.

Thanks for that. Would it be possible to do the same, but ISO 200?
I'm really curious if XPro1 has a good detail after somehow strange dpreview tests.
Also one more question - is it true that the MF magnification mode changes aperture,
so the live view playback does not represent what really is gonna be taken?

So, anyone already shot this camera with M lenses? Any samples, specially RAW stuff?

Sure, do you want RAW or JPEG?

I don't have an answer for your other question at the moment, but I can look into it tomorrow. I do know that when AFing with the EVF or the LCD, you get the DoF preview after the half-press to focus, but not before.

Thank you, you're very helpful! I think there are two different things going on -
when you use a Fuji automatic lens and MF, the camera changes aperture etc
by itself when you use live view. Not sure why.
But if you use a fully manual lens and an adapter, the camera can not change
the aperture, so I guess when you use live view, it must show a full DOF etc
all the time... RIght?

I am assuming when you say live view, you mean when shooting you use the LCD as the viewfinder? If so, like deadwolfbones mentioned, you see the preview DOF once you AF press the button. Otherwise, it's like any LCD except the Sony as it does not AF on its own, you always have to press the button to focus. Sorry, my response may sound a bit childish as my lack of photography vocabulary still sucks

Oh, and I use the LCD quite a bit instead of the VF as its quite nice.

I'd also like to hear a comparison between the Nex5n/7 and the Fuji viewfinder experience...seem crucial to me...

Its like night and day if your taking about the nice bright, lag free, non blocked up optical finder. EVF's are similar with the NEX7/NEX5n add-on having better resolution and a more realistic view, at least under good lighting. The NEX7 EVF blocks up shadows and high contrast scenes quite a bit though, and also had a bit more of a noticeable grain.

EVF's in general have come a long way, and are certainly useable with some limitations such as fast action shooting due to lag and refresh rates, but they still don't match a good optical finder. HOWEVER, there are times where the EVF is actually better such as when you need an exact framing.

Really having the option to use optical, an EVF or work with the back LCD screen (which I find I actually like more than the EVF in many cases such as composing a landscape shot) gives you the best of all worlds. You can pick the option that best suits your needs and taste.

Good to know.So, extending this a little further, how the OVF on the Fuji compares to,let's say, the Canon 5D2 (the one I have...)
thanks!

There is a trick that works for the EVF on the NEX series where you can reduce JPG contrast settings to make the EVF less blocked up. Works pretty well but not if you shoot JPG!

Totally different type of viewfinder. Your looking through the lens on your DSLR, on the XPro your looking through just a window and everything is in focus all the time. Also you see more of the scene than your framing allows. Various framelimes for a given focal length will display in the OVF window.

Its just a rather different way of shooting than a DSLR, for better or worse

Its basically the same way any rangefinder works. Leica M9 etc. I think DPR had a pretty good introducion to how a RF viewfinder works on their M9 review

Hummm...the thing is that I'm torn apart between the NEX 7 and X-Pro. The Fuji seems to have better IQ,and way better hi ISO, both which are important to me. I'm planning to extend my nowadays small M lenses collection (because cameras come and go) and first reviews on M lenses adapted to X-Pro were not very encouraging...where I live I can't test these cameras, they don't sell here, so I end up relying on reviews and my 5n experience...oh well...

M glass works as well, if not better on the XPro than it does on the NEX7
