My comment from another thread.

Let me tell you that the XPro1 is kind of a pain in the rear for flash photography due to the way the controls work.

I often want to use the maximum sync speed of 1/180s but the dial only has 1/125 and 1/250. You will have to pick one (say 1/250) and then use the arrow key to fine-tune speed to 1/180s. Sounds simple right? No. As soon as you review an image, it's got reset to 1/250s again. Not only that, it feels the need to reset focus distance too, if you're using manual focus to shoot macro, you'll have to focus again.
