Re: How serious is the slow focus of X-Pro1 affecting purchase decision?

It's hyped on DPR because it's not the fastest focuser out there. Focus is fine, though you need to learn how to use it -- if you pick it up and go without reading the manual you're going to wonder why it won't focus where you want.

If it makes you feel better, I doubt low-light focusing ability is worse than the 5D. That was the go-to low-light wedding camera for years. The fact that you can get an OM-D or a D700 that focuses faster doesn't mean the other cameras simply stop working.
