Re: Considering an X-Pro 1

I recently got the xe1 (I know. Not the xpro1 but essentially handles the same) and I can tell you it's temperamental as hell. It really marches to the beat of its own drums. However once you get the rhythm it's a fantastic camera!

Auto focus sucks (well mediocre I guess. It's a good half second slower than the nex6 in most situations) but there are tricks. Pre focusing, choosing easy to focus subjects, etc, etc.

The 35mm is very painful to man focus. The dials rotate very slowly. And after coming from focus peaking this x10 zoom only is very painful.

Like many have said unless longer focal length is very important I would hold out for the xe2/xpro2.
