X-Pro1 at the Olympics

One of my overriding reasons for buying the X-Pro1 was to reduce the load when traveling, yet still deliver the quality of images I was used to with my Canon 5DII and L Lenses.

The recent Olympics in London proved to be a great test, and really demonstrated the benefits of such a light-weight system when traveling internationally.

The X-Pro1 and all three current Fuji lenses were used - and some sample shots are included below for ref.

My conclusions from the trip were all positive - I enjoyed the smaller footprint kit, and the results met or exceeded expectations for IQ etc.
