X100/X-Pro1 - which one did you keep?
Apr 15, 2012

I've been testing out the X-Pro1 for a week and I gotta say it's one heck of a camera. The OOC JPEGs are really amazing. Here're some shots I got walking around the neighborhood.

That being said, I feel that the X100 is also phenomenal camera and I personally don't feel like the X-Pro1 is a $1000 upgrade (counting cost with just one lens). Obviously the X-Pro1 is more flexible and I would say the image quality is a notch above the X100. But for me there's something "magical" shooting with the 23mm lens on the X100. I also think it's more discrete than the X-Pro1 and people warm up to it more without the long lens on the X-Pro1. Plus I prefer the build of X100 to the X-Pro1 for some reason. Finally after the FW1.21 upgrade the X100 actually focuses better than X-Pro1 in low light (with the 35mm)!

So for me I think I'm gonna stick to my lovely X100 and return the X-Pro1. What about you? (Please don't start a flame war - I'm just curious to what you guys think and perhaps learn from your experience!)
