Hi,
I'm currently shooting with a X-M1 but I want to move away from this simply body to something more advance and professional but don't want to break the bank. I have been looking at used x-pro1, x-t1, x-t10 and wounding what you "Fuji" people think?

Between the x-t1 and the x-t10, if the x-t1 is close in price at all to the x-t10 in your region the x-t1 is the better camera.

Between those two and the x-pro1 is very much a personal preference. I would recommend getting your hands on them both if you can. They handle quite a bit differently.

I had an X-Pro1 & while I liked the camera as a glasses wearer I didn't like the viewfinder. You should try one out before buying. I'd say look at an XE-1 or XE-2 also.

SO I just bought a used x-t1 for $615. I'm super excited to get it in the mail. I was looking at the xe-2 as well, I wasn't able to find a good deal on them.

Depends on your style of photography. Rangefinder vs SLR. I personally would go with X-T1 because of the price so really good on eBay and Amazon right now. I switched from X100T to X-Pro1 because I love OVF so much and X-Pro2 is way out of my budget. X-T10 is a good choice too but X-T1 is just better for the money. X-Pro1 is a bit a pain in xxx as it autofocus is slightly behind, no Classic Chrome, no face detection, no wifi, not weather sealed, older UI. Goodluck!

@afidmo, I was so close to buying a x-pro1 but the x-t1 was so close enough in price that the x-t1 was a little more bang for its buck. I honestly don't really have a style yet thats what I'm hoping to discover with my new camera. The x-M1 has a lot to offer but it lacks manual controls to develop a good understanding the relationships between iso, shutter speed and aperture. Im looking forward to get a hold of my new camera later next month.

Pro 2 and T2 look amazing but they are also way out of my budget.

If I remember right, the xm1 has twin command dials and a fn button you can set to ISO. Add a lens with an aperture ring and you have manual controls. The thing that made me change from the xm1 to an xe1 (and eventually an x100t) is the lack of a viewfinder.

Yeah, the M1 does have twin command dials and I recently switched the fn button to set the ISO. I guess i just like the visual appeal of having the dials exposed without needing the display on. The viewfinder is also an awesome feature that I haven't had the opportunity to shoot with using the X-M1
