Brand new X-Pro1 with XF-18mm available in Finland from reputable dealer for 849 euros. Still worth buying for that price?

Hell, yeah. The cheapest price I've seen over here for the same kit used was about 100€ less, no big thing. Just make sure it's your thing. The XP1 comes with a different set of challenges than other snappers, especially if you shoot RAW and/or do large prints.

It's as close to the feel of a classic "real" camera as you can find today.

I must respectfully disagree. Having both an XP1 and an X100T, I'd say the X100T is as close as you can get by a very small margin ;P

Either way, the OP has got an excellent camera.

+1.  I dont have a T but I have an S, and for me it's leagues above the XP1 for street, just a stealthier lighter lower-key camera in general.  And I learned film photography 40 years ago with a 35mm prime so that ffl doesnt faze me at all..  love it

Buy it like me at amazon.co.uk and you will get 2 lenses for almost same price. Unfurtunately currently the euro is bad.

Re: X-Pro1 for Street Photography?

Yes, that is a great deal and I indeed saw it at amazon.co.uk.

However, as I already have the 27mm, I have been looking for bundles with 35 mm or 18 mm.

Re: X-Pro1 for Street Photography?

Sell the 27 and put the money towards the 35.

Re: X-Pro1 w 18mm & 35mm

Yeah I love seeing that. Looks like homemade bellows with that floral print. Kinda flimsy tripod with a serious head. Cool. I'm a little envious and appreciative of anyone actually out shooting an 8x10 these days.

Thanks for sharing that.

I agree with the 35 (50) focal length - the most versatile lens in the bag by far.

Re: X-Pro1 w 18mm & 35mm

My most versatile lens out there is my 1855. I have an excellent copy and it's fast enough for most situations. I think of it and shoot it like a 18-23-27-35-55, mostly @ 23mm. Gotta travel light, just a sniper strap, no bag.

I think the X-Pro1 is/ will be/ a classic and keep some value over time. Much more so than the XE1/ XE2/ X-A1/ X-M1.

The best thing about the X-A1 is you can get one for about a hundred quid. Can't lose much on that purchase!
