Old school experience with XPro-1 and 60mm
4

I found myself in a situation that the  only camera I had available was my XPro-1 and the 18mm and 60mm primes for a family pool party. I have always thought that those two primes could cover most of my shooting needs, and it turned out to be true.

I love using the OVF, it definitely feels  like an old rangefinder. The issue with the 60mm lens of course is that the 60mm frameline is relatively small, and with the OVF focus system, picking focus acurately becomes tricky. In retrospect I think the EVF may be a better choice with anything longer than the 35.  Even so I think I got a keeper rate of 75% or so.
