As he's a pro i doubt the slow auto focus, poor battery life, low res LCD and lack of optical view finder would make this viable.

One or two of these issues might be overlooked but all of them would seem like too much of a compromise. You could say the X-Pro 1 could be logical but this still has the worst of the above in that the autofocus and battery life are still poor.

you won't get an optical viewfinder with any M43 - or significantly better battery life. I do appreciate that the autofocus may be an issue for some depending on what you shoot, but there are pro's that do use the fuji system exclusively; but it really boils down to what and how you shoot. The advantage of the fuji over M43 will be the bigger sensor & some great lenses (M43 also has some great lenses). I certainly wouldn't suggest the OP discount Fuji without looking into both.
