Re: Wise choice?

I doubt that you will regret a move to the XPro1. I have moved down from a 4x5 to medium format to Canon film and then ff digital. (Canon 1Ds Mark II). I am at an age that makes it too difficult to carry the SLR with a couple lenses, so I got rid of all the Canon gear and ended up with a Leica M9 and 3 primes. I loved the IQ but I do a lot of landscape and macro work and the Leica was poor to impossible for that. I have been using the XPro1 for over 6 months and I love it. I made take outs from a 40in x 60in scene taken with the XPro1 and 35mm lens and also the same scene taken with the Leica M9 and a 50mm Summicron. When a half dozen photographers viewed them at the local pro camera shop, only one person guessed which was which. What's more it is satisfying camera to use. Good luck.
