System choice as a whole, the new lens seem amazing especially the glowing reviews from the 18-55 users. I constantly yearn for the feel of my old OM slr and the possibility of a similar digital would be awesome.

Here's to learning something new everyday, and remembering it the next.

I would be interested in a doubler for the X-Pro1, as well as a 135mm equivalent. Although the system is not intended for telephoto photography, it would increase the flexibility of the system for me.

For now I wait for the 10-24 and hope it is as good as the 18-55 is reputed to be. The fixed focal length lenses should not be written off, with the 35mm and the 60mm both being awesome, with the 60mm sharper at the edges wide open. Here are a couple of samples, both better viewed as originals rather than in this post. Here's the 35mm:

Takes with the 35mm in low light. Lovely foreground bokeh (check the spoon).



And the 60mm:



Taken with the 60mm.
