Photo Perzon,

What makes you think you know about my photography from my avatar. What a dumb statement. I am not casual about photography. But if you looked at my profile you would see that I have M4/3 cameras, however due to several factors they do not meet most of my needs. I see you are a big proponent of them.

Your avatar is of a casual outdoor seize the moment photographer. You need portability, fast AF, that is perfect for m4/3. The pro is more for paused reflection on the go.

I see your point. I like to shoot things that move too, mostly street and I too found the focus system a great fault of the camera. The best photos I have seen from XPro1's are of non moving objects, people and scenes. A static scene seems to work well but when one is more used to the focus systems in todays DSLRs it is hard to get around this issue.

I really was looking forward to the X-Pro1 but after shooting with it for a day I find it hard to think what I spent on the body, 2 lenses and an extra battery I could have a Nikon D800 that could shoot anything. I'll continue to use the M9, NEX-7 and X100 for what I was hoping the X-Pro1 would perhaps replace.
