Re: Fuji XPro-1 VS. Pentax K5

Sorry that I am not answering your question directly but here are my two cents.

I don't have the K-5 but I have an older K-x and have the limited 43 and 77 primes. I wish I had the 31. If you haven't shot with the limiteds, borrow or rent and try them. They are fantastic! Pentax fans talk about "pixie dust" in pictures taken with the limiteds. I never believed them until I got them. Its true. There's just something special about pictures taken with those lens that "pop". The K-5 is about the same length of the X pro 1 but it is 64% heavier and 30.5% thicker (Camerasize.com). I played with the X pro 1 for an hour the other day...beautiful! I am contemplating between the X-100 and X pro 1 now. LUcky you already have the X 100 too. Either of these would be wonderful tools to carry around all the time. K-5...hmmm..maybe not in that category at least for me. Good luck with your decision...why can't we have them all!!!
