Xpro1 has dropped in price, would you buy Xpro1 over XT1?

The Xpro1 has dropped in price a bit, not much but now is at 999 in amazon. i did love how the Xpro1 feels on my hands, specially with bigger manual focus lenses.

I don't do fast action shooting, so i really don't require the camera to be "faster" than my existing Fuji S5 Pro. By the way, is the Xpro1 faster than the S5 Pro??? I was wondering that.

Still, no one knows how the skin tones of the XT1 will perform in high iso, and i am still waiting to find out. I personally did not like the feel of the XE1/2 on my hand, but by just looking at the XT1 grip i am going to guess it will feel "better". Any way, the XT1 is a bit more expensive either way.

With this new technology from fuji, how many (actual Xpro1 owners) would say NOT to buy a Xpro1 anymore? Again, please consider that i don't require a fast action camera. I get the feeling that if the Xpro1 drops in price just a bit more, in the end, i might just choose the Xpro1 over the XT1 for IQ alone, assuming the XT1 skin tones will come out mest up too.

What's your opinion?
