I couldn't resist picking up the new xPro1 while browsing the local camera shop. It is a beauty and I have been shooting with it for 3 days now. I also have a Pentax K5 and the x100, which I also love, but am always pining for a tad longer reach on the lens.

I am having a lot of trouble getting shots in focus and just realized that it may well have to do with my ability to hold the camera still enough. Most everything at f1.4 - 4.0 that is slower than 1/75 is blurry. I have been playing with the parallax issues and where to use the focus box, but the save rate is disappointingly low for me.
I am very disappointed and wonder if the handgrip will help.

When I do get good shots, the image quality rivals the K5. I always am having to readjust the red colors in LR with the K5 and the XPro1 is quite accurate.

Anyone notice a big difference using the hand grip?
