Got a new X-Pro-1

Aww yiss. This thing is awesome.

I actually ordered both a brand new Nikon D700 + 50mm and Fuji X-Pro-1 + 35mm. I really loved the FF and professional layout of the Nikon, but it weights a ton. The Fuji is great because it's a traditional style camera that allows aperture adjustment on the lens - where it should be - and shutter adjustment on top of the body - where it should be.

The weight of the Nikon D700 changed my mind. As much as I love it, I just don't want to lug it around everywhere I go. It's too much of a burden. The D700 body alone weights more than the Fuji X-Pro-1 plus all three lenses!

I have no idea why the Fuji aperture chatters away like a retarded chipmunk - I hope that Fuji releases a firmware update to disable this. I just don't see a need for it when using the OVF. The aperture should stay wide open, to allow for fast auto focus, then close down as the picture is taken.
