Thank you everyone! About the X-Pro1...

Thank you everyone for your very nice words, much appreciated. About the X-Pro1, I loved shooting with the camera except for its AF, which was often bad - sluggish on the 18, good enough on the 35 (at least it locked OK with these lenses) but definitely unacceptable on the 60, which would hunt forever without locking on anything: it did so always in low light, but more often than not even in good light. However, what was the REAL deal breaker for me was the software: I shoot RAW, and Fuji's own RAW processor is nearly unusable (though with OK results once you get it to work). Results that are coming up now with third party converters aren't very promising either...

This to me shows how a great camera can be definitely handicapped by short-sighted marketing policies - if this will change, I am ready to jump on the train again, especially now that the AF seems to be improved with the last FW.

For now, I am enjoying my Nex7...

Thanks again, best,

Vieri
