I have been shooting with the X Pro 1 for about 3 months and for the most part have been thoroughly satisfied. Originally I had planned on using it for motion and controlled settings that benefitted from AF, but the day before I received it in the post my M8 floundered and the XP1 has been pressed into service full time. I started with M mount lenses but once I acquired a couple XF lenses the camera really started to hum for me. I still shoot M Mount lenses which have become much easier to use after 2.0. Previous to the update you could not use magnification feature while images were processing which became very frustrating if you wanted to shoot and re-focus quickly. Fortunately that has been fixed and shooting with Leica glass has become more enjoyable. You can really feel Fuji’s analogue past whilst photographing with this camera and it only gets better the more time you spend with it. I still miss the filmic nature and rangefinder focusing of the M8 and I hope it can be fixed, but if I had to shoot with any other camera the X Pro 1 would definitely be it.
