Fuji X Pro1 + Voigtlander 15mm
Apr 5, 2012

One of the main reasons why I got X Pro was the fact that I can use it with a wider range of M-mount glass than NEX-7. And by that I mean that one was supposed to be able to use it with wide angle lenses. One of the best examples of such lens is Voigtlander 15mm - it is optically excellent and has very good contrast.

Today I finally got my X Pro and had a chance to try it out with Voigtlander via Kipon adapter. No great shots to show off, but I did test for color cast - which was extreme with NEX-7. I would say that from my experience it is about as good as NEX-5, but not nearly as good as Ricoh GXR. So at first glance it appears that it is a descent camera for RF lenses, but not anything special.

And of course white paper shot... Not quite white since did not attach a flash. Even though in the shot below color cast is clearly seen, in field use this would not be a huge factor for me, as can be seen in the image above. But probably I would not go as far as Voigtlander 12mm - this would be too much.

More testing tomorrow...
