X-Pro 1 negative demo experience
Feb 19, 2013

I got to handle the X-Pro 1 camera at B&H the other day. A huge disappointment! Maybe the demo lacked the firmware update that's supposed to fix the focus problem, but I found the beast impossible to focus. In the dim light of the show room, the camera would hunt for focus and by the time it locked the moment had passed. There wasn't an intuitive way to zone focus, as there was no focus scale on the lens and the salesman did not help me find the menu setting for manual focus. Great picture quality doesn't matter if you can't get it sharp.

Am I missing something?
