I can't believe no one have mentioned the thing I think is the worst about the X-Pro1. The live histogram is pointless in Manual mode.

I've got that one noted - it's the same as the X100, and a surprising number of other cameras too. The reason behind this behaviour relates to the fact that the X-Pro1 doesn't provide an exposure preview in manual when using the LCD or EVF either. The live histogram is derived from the Live View feed (even when using the OVF) and that live view feed is kept at a standard brightness in M mode, so the histogram never adjusts. This, of course, makes no sense in most shooting situations.
