I'd love to try the XP1 shooting a band in a small, dark club
In reply to MPA1, Apr 26, 2012

It is good to hear feedback like this. I really need to get my hands on an XP1 and take it out to one of the rock clubs around here and try shooting live music with it. I'm used to shooting these with my D700 and 50 1.4D. When the XP1 was announced, the smaller size and low noise got me thinking it might be great in that environment (the D700 is big and draws a lot of attention). Reading Arias and others got me second guessing that. There are lots of other things I'd use it for, too, but that was a big draw. And if it has trouble focusing in low light, then the ISO performance doesn't really matter, may as well get a cheaper m43 system.

Watching patiently from the sidelines.
