reedjecd: a wonderfull sensor in a poorly designed camera.lens chatter, hoods cannot be reverse mounted on 18mm and 35mm lenses, ridiculous autofocus speed, no firm click of aperture stops,focus ring turn non stop either way, no distance markings on the lens.i'm so sorry I bought the kit. I just hope that sensor will climb his way into a new Hassy.
You can do alot with an M8/M9 so long as you don't push the ISO. A $7000 camera that doesn't shoot well above ISO800. When comparing images, the X-Pro1 hammers the M9 at any point above ISO800. Below ISO800, all you lose is some punch in color from the X-Pro1 when compared to M9. I hope you are as critial about Leica as you are about Fuji.
If the M mount works as intended WOW!! Leica's advantage lies in their amazing lenses. Yet the body is not as feature rich as the X-Pro1. This could be a perfect marriage between Japanese gizadry and German optics. The possibilities intrigue me.
