Amy, I'm curious; you already have the M8 - what is it about the X-Pro that would make you want to add it to your kit?

My M8 won't last forever... and the likelihood of me being able to afford the M9 is slim-to-none unless I win the lottery or get one as a gift from a wealthy friend (more unlikely than the lottery - LOL). I'd like something with better low-light performance than the M8, but with a similar form factor. No, it's not a rangefinder (which is really where my heart lies), but there aren't really any other choices in digital. The Fuji looks about as close as I'm going to get.

Believe me, I love my almost 5-year-old M8. If the M9 were 1/2 the price I'd be all over it. Problem is, it isn't. Call the Fuji my poor-woman's upgrade.


Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep.
