ProPhoto review X-Pro 1

A great review, worth buying the magazine for.

"Interestingly, the x-pro1 is rather less 'cutesy' retro than the x100. It seems to be a whole lotmore purposeful pehaps becouse of its size, but certainly becouse of the interchangeable lenses. The classical styling is most definitely there, but the overall emphasis appears to be more on the function than the other words, this is designed to be, first and foremost, a professional's working tool rather than a plaything (not that the x100 can be considered mereley the latter either, but you know what we mean). Futhermore, the balancing of the traditional and the contemporary is even cleverer, and it's a long time since we've picked up a camera that immediately felt so right. That you don't need to go near the instruction manual to work everything out is another testimony to the sheer competence of the x-pro1's desin at every level. It isn't entirely flawless, but it is undoubtedly a truly great camera."
