Like Zaax, I recommend the 35mm 1.4. My rational: like you I bought my X-Pro-1 with the 18-55 zoom. It is one great lens far above the usual kit lens quality. Since it covers 18 to 55 admirably, I saw no point to buying the 23, 27 or any other intermediate prime lenses since the zoom covers the range so well. I do have a use for a large aperture prime for low light and the 35 got such high marks by reviewers and forum users, that is what I bought. I never looked back. Great lens. Go for it.
