The X-Pro1 does all I need and more and the hybrid viewfinder is a nice idea allowing one to switch between sytandard electronic viewiing and rangefinder style viewing at the flick of a switch.
On small word of warning, there is no dioptre control on the finder, so factor in a few pounds to purchase a correction lens. It takes the standard Nikon type and they are available from -5 to +6 strengths. Get this camera while yo still can and at this great price. Stocks are running out fast.
My intention is to gradually change my pro gear from DSLR to mirrorless, with the later purchase of a couple more lenses and a second body, possibly a X-Pro2.
Aside from all that, I love this camera, firstly it looks amazing especially with an 18mm on or one of the new 23/35 WR lenses attached. It's a great weight too, around 650g with a lens attached and it feels incredibly well made.
The focusing is nowhere near as bad as it was when it was first released in 2012, constant firmware updates saw to that, I also have a XP2 and if I'm honest the focusing on the XP1 is only about 25% slower which means it's pretty fast. I don't have difficulty locking on in low light even without the light assist and when it does lock on its good. Also the low light quality is superb, I'm more than happy to go to 6400 ISO to achieve the shot.
The lack of dioptre is a problem which is pretty easily overcome, I bought a +2 Voigtlander dioptre from Robert White, it was £22 incl postage. If your reading glasses are +2 then get a +2 dioptre, it worked for me. I miss wi-fi a little but I use an apple connector cable if I want instant access to my images and the other downside is the slight lag in the EVF, but the OVF is brilliant so that's ok.
If you crave a Leica and like most of us can't justify £7,000 for a body and lens combo then get this for around 10 times less. It feels great in my hands and looks as good as a Leica, has good autofocus, the photographic process with this camera is wonderful and I highly recommend it.
Get one before all the new ones available now have gone.
There is a learning curve involved. This is no point-and-shoot.
The X Pro1 is not for everyone. Any camera is a set of compromises. You'll love it, or not, depending on what's important to you. For me, this is the first digital camera I'm in love with.
I'm looking forward to Fujifilm developing this system with more lenses and future bodies.
NOTE: Firmware update fixes the initial glitches and improves autofocus somewhat.
The image quality was something which grabbed my attention straight away, The colour rendering is beautiful at all iso's with the highlight and shadows drifting in between. The sharpness once again runs through-out the iso's. Blurring appears in the corners when opened wide,
The build quality of the camera body is on par, if not better built than my previous 7D. The camera's weight won me over as well. The 7D was a perfect studio camera, i found it clunky and too bulky for your street photography.
It took me back to shooting with my old 35mm film cameras, The controls on top brought back many fond memories too. The button layout took me a while to get used to but once you're used to them its much easier and quicker to set up than any other camera i have used.
To my surprise i found it slightly weird that a mirror less camera made a shutter sound, but it's a nice touch. I thought it would've been silent.
The downside to this camera is the electronic viewfinder, i find it much easier to look at the camera screen rather using the VF, it may a personal thing, but i find it very useless.
Build - 5*
Image Quality - 4.5* (lens dependent)
Usability - 5*
Battery life - 3.5* (Drains pretty quickly)
