you are missed the whole point.

I supposed this forum only welcomes the praise and adorations, but will stand up against any criticism.

The OP didn't talk about shortcomings, he made a series of declarative statements, most demonstrably incorrect or at minimum a matter of opinion, and used that to declare that there was no point to the camera. And what makes him a troll is he's been beating the same drum for months without ever acknowledging that anyone else might have a clue.

As i point out downthread, it's most certainly not true that the camera can't focus in the dark, it's been demonstrated on this forum:

Whether it does it fast enough or consistently enough for one's own personal uses is largely subjective. As is the desire of need for blazing fast 3D tracking AF. The Pentax AF system is abysmal next to Canon and Nikon, yet somehow people manage to make great pictures with it, much as they did before AF was invented.

If it doesn't meet your needs, don't buy it. Feel free to state the reasons why it's not a fit FOR YOU, and let people evaluate whether those reasons are applicable for them. But to jump in (repeatedly), and basically tell the people who believe it is a fit for them that they are all a bunch of deluded fools, and then whine (repeatedly) when they give some pushback, is nonsensical and deliberately provocative.

Another fanboy that takes criticism of this Fuji as a personal attack and refuses to acknowledge obvious shortcomings of this X-pro1.

Why won't you disprove the claims of the OP such as taking photos of fast moving subject, AF performance in dim light (lots of street photography important function).

In regards to size, I have no issues with this. This is a replica of Contax G2 body which I own 3 of them as they are very good.

Quirky manual focus if one wants to use one of those excellent Leica/Zeiss primes.

If you could do this, you might just convinced me to purchase one.

Seriously.

While the OP's tone does seem a bit 'trollish', does anyone who has used the camera know if his points are valid?
