Arnold's comments were very helpful indeed. As someone who owned a Contax G1, with 28mm,45mm and 90mm lenses, I simply loved that camera.

I now run a D700, and, find it pretty good. However, whenever i see or handle an X-Pro1, I need to hide my credit card! They really are things of beauty!

But, I can't afford to spend money on another system, unless it meets my needs for sports photography. From what I read, the X-Pro1 would ACQUIRE a target pretty quickly, and track it until the first frame, but, after that, focus is fixed. So, If I am shooting a moving target, I will have a problem. The D700 and many other camera will do this with ease, as we all know.  So to does the Panasonic G1X, which will track quite nicely at 4fps.

Does anyone have experience with the X-Pro1 with sports shooting?

Not so much sports as our dogs running/playing.

My Canon DSLR kit is great for that, the X-Pro1 is challenged in that regard.
