Xpro-1 is a well made machine... but...contrast detection... no thanks....

Xpro-2........... if it has phase detection and weather sealing, and a few more lenses... thats gonna start some serious discussions about the future of canikon...

I love lots about FUJI, just no comparable offerings/support....yet... Maybe one day we will be talkin about SONJI !!

SO why exactly do I keep hearing the statement that Canon has better lenses?

I thought the nikkor 24-70 and 14-24 were pretty good.. what makes the offerings from canon better...?

Canon 24-70L/2.8 II is much better than Nikon counterpart 24-70G/2.8.

go down the page on the link below to see how it compared to Nikon counterpart on D800/D3X.  5D3+24-70L II beats D800+24-70G according to DXOMark's test, especially at edges/corners and much less LoCA.

Canon also is better in 70-200L/2.8 IS II over Nikon 70-200G/2.8 VR. Canon TS-E lenses are much better.

Nikon 14-24G/2.8 is an excellent UWA zoom that Canon doesn't have a counterpart yet. Canon has 16-35L/2.8 II that is still very good and can use filters while Nikon 14-24G cannot. However rumored Canon 14-24L/2.8 seems coming
