Re: Buying an XPro 1 today

The X-Pro1 is a nice camera - I’ve owned a few of them - but the IQ mystique is somewhat overblown and it can be very frustrating to use, due to the slow and erratic AF and many other quirks/shortcomings.

Do I think it’s a future collectible, no, I think like most modern consumer electronics it’s ultimately headed for landfill. X-Pro1 shutters do not last forever and I imagine repairs are impossible now. The X-Pro2 is a far better and more durable camera and perfects the X-Pro concept, so that’s the older model I’d “collect” if I was looking now.
