Hello,

I am looking to get a more compact camera. I currently own 2 dslrs (Pentax) and lenses, but I would like something smaller that I could take with me all the time. The XF1 looks very intriguing, but I worry a bit about the ability to blur the backgrounds with casual portraits. How does it do? Normally, I would use my Pentax 77 1.8, 40 2.8 or 16-45 F4, although the 77 is my favorite.

What is the max aperture at 50 and 80mm? Also, how good is the lens?

My other thought, was to get an X10, mainly because of the viewfinder and the 2.8 lens, but I like the idea of the 25mm wide angle.

Thanks for the help,

Seth

If you already shoot with Pentax, Pentax MX-1 is the best choice at the moment.
