Very nice work, with an admirable consistency. Looking at these recent shots, I admire (and am learning from) how you get a sense of presence and movement from foreground to background. I think trying to mimic that will be my exercise for my next walkabout.

I currently have a Nikon D7000 and a Fuji X-Pro1 bodies.
Would like to use Leica R lenses on one of them.
Can any of you tell me which one it would be better going with an adaptor for?
While I haven't used either, I'd lean toward the X-Pro. Not only can you get a cheap adapter to get a feel for how it works, but I think that the mirrorless camera also has focus peaking and magnification--which are significant benefits when manually focusing. When I used Pentax SLRs, I had to use an aftermarket screen to find focus when shooting below f/2.8. Also, the Pentax--and, I assume, all SLRs--meter much more accurately when they know the working aperture, so your X-Pro might be better there, too. Unfortunately, I think the optical finder will be substantially blocked by the size of the lenses, which is a definite benefit to the Nikon.
Edit: oh, and if you go the Nikon route, I can wholeheartedly endorse the Leitax products. The guy who runs it (David, I think) was responsive to my questions and the adapters themselves are much higher quality than the Metabones adapters that I've used. That said, I'm pleased with my (NEX) Speed Booster overall, and it cost about the same as a kit's worth of Leitax adapters.
