2.0 out of 5 stars too small, 8 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this to tidy my study. But, it's a few mm too short for my pens, my pencils, my glasses... very frustrating indeed!

3.0 out of 5 stars X-Pro1, 8 Mar 2014

It only just - only just with a squeeze - fits in the X-pro1 with the 35mm lens. Apart from that it is well made, but could do with being a little bigger.

Absolutely love this thing. I've cooked everything this week in it. Pork ribs, chicken, fish, veg. All tastes lush, I've lost 4 lbs and it's so quick to cook. Highly recommend!

3.0 out of 5 stars Box is poor, 8 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Musically, this era has never been one of my favourites, but, as with all before, it has grown on me. I don't think it comes close to 'Tell Tale signs' personally, but that is completely subjective.
What I will say though is the box is terrible. Mine arrived ripped and torn, there is a thin paper film over the card body and as the box moves, the edges rip. It's a shame because the boxes really are why you pay 50 instead of 25.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good, 8 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was hesitant because I think they're expensive, but after buying several pairs of expensive shoes and living in a country that does nothing but rain, I ordered two pairs. They are very well made, but I still feel a little expensive.

Nothing but Niger seeds in the mix, birds are very fond of it. Highly recommended. Remember to subscribe or keep stocked up so you keep the birds in food, as they will be relying on you.

5.0 out of 5 stars From the X100, 8 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have owned the X100 for two years and have read up extensively -as I imagine most people in my situation have- on the various X-series. I love the X100 and have been tempted by the idea of interchangeable lenses, especially a 1.4, but wanted to wait until the autofocus speed was improved before committing to a new model. After seeing the free lens offer at christmas and desperately trying to justify it on a body which still had less than perfect autofocus I thought I'd wait till CES in 2014 to see the replacement. It wasn't, and still hasn't been announced. So I took the plunge and bought the X-Pro1.

It is a wonderful, wonderful camera. I have big hands, and it feels perfect in them, the controls are more intuitive and better spaced than the x100. It feels like it's made well, not like any tech product I've bought before.

It's probably just me, but I felt like the 18mm f/2 lens wasn't as good in low light as the x100's f/2. But, with the 35mm f/1.4, it's a beautiful camera. Autofocus isn't perfect, but coming from the x100 it's no slower. Makes a lovely shutter noise too. Glad I bought.

Wasn't sure about it before hand, even though the threadcount was high, but the sheets are lovely. Highly reccomended indeed.

1.0 out of 5 stars Arrived broken, 8 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Title says it all. Arrived at my sisters house, as a present, she turns it on and it doesn't work. As she said after, looking at the reviews- it isn't surprising.

Update - replacement arrived. It is also broken.
