Re: To ditch the D300 and buy an X-Pro 1 or not ?!?

I wouldn't do it, the X-Pro1/X-E1 cameras AF is just way too slow and inaccurate in low light. I would save your pennies and get a D600 if you have a lot of Nikon glass.

Don't get me wrong, I love my X-E1 and it has great high-ISO performance, but the AF is just not in the same ballpark as any modern DSLR. Sure, you can get good shots, but you will have to work much harder to get them since manual focusing will be the only viable option.
