Re: Buying an XPro 1 today

This seems to be more of a zoom vs prime question. I'm not the best person to answer as for some time now I've only used primes, as I prefer the lighter setup and greater depth of field possibilities. However, you need to consider your preferred style of photography and whether you prefer to have a wide range of focal lengths available without the hassle of changing lenses. The 16-55 f2.8 has a really good reputation on here, but is relatively big and heavy.

Thanks for the reply! It's always nice to hear from people that have used the camera. I was leaning towards a couple used primes but then thought a used 16-55 would cover an extra FL for the same price. I'll have a look and read some reviews about DoF and also consider size and handling. Ideally don't want to be weighed down while out shooting.
