Re: Photo example

Thank you for your kind words. And that is what I meant in my earlier comment to you about what the X-Pro 1 is for. It is a fantastic street and reportage camera but not good for action sports photography. But you can get the AF to work in situations like this if you know how to do it. It was very windy at the harbour that day and the kid was chasing the fast flying bubbles and running towards me. A real challenge fo a CDAF and with the 56mm lens at f1.2 and close distance to the boy there was not much room for a missed AF lock.

The 1/4000S exposure time makes it look slower than it was at it nicely froze the action
