Kit, If the 5N does not work for you, while in Italy, drop me a line.
So much to wake up to!
The problem is that my 5N and Hawks adapter did not arrive in time for this trip (I was REALLY hoping). I am using the GXR here, with the CV 35/3.5 (which is sharp wide open); very nice focal length for me. So, in the meantime, I am gathering ALL INFO!
Cheers to all, KL
A fun video review, I dunno if anyone else follows his reviews, somewhat childish, but entertaining to watch all the same!
Fujifilm X-Pro1 Hands-on Review - YouTube
Yes, quite fun... makes me want a souped up X100 with the new sensor and ultra fast CDAF - lower cost of entry, specialised and optimum lens for walkaround/streetshooting, unique hybrid viewfinder.
I really think Fuji should concentrate on perfecting the X100 with latest electronics and more firmware development.
If they can dramatically improve the X100, I would pay the asking price of the X Pro 1 for one. From what I've seen so far the X Pro 1 would also fail in my hands (my phrasing is intentional )
I have a superior camera in my hacked GH-2 to do real infrared photography with better DR, IQ, MP count, pretty much everything. Besides, it is a real live view camera and I can actually see in infrared and even in ultraviolet.
The M8/M9 and such would fail miserably.
Cam, Quite right.
I have used the process of elimination to not to consider mechanical RF cameras. SLRs are almost gone as well...
Jono, Did you close the other eye while looking through the EVF?
Thanks, Robert. I will wait for some more time to see what he comes up with. Thus far, it is touristy stuff. That is not without its bonuses.
That cab shot shot would not have been possible for anyone other than an obvious tourist!
Unfortunate title to Zack's last piece... if you glance at it, it reads something very harsh and which I certainly disagree with!
I love the photography though, especially the character in specs - somewhere in this thread I think, someone asked for examples with 'pop' - I think I found one!
The harsh contrasty sunlit sample? Those are easy to produce with any and every camera/lens combo. Even the worst of the worst lenses tend to produce very decent images under such light. I could not understand the quest for such.

No, the 5th image down, B&W portrait of the old chap with goggles
Ah, that one.
Brian, FWIW, that is perhaps the most photographed face from Mumbai.
Google: Britannia and co restaurant mumbai (oh, yeah!)

Funny, I thought this thread was about a camera and its performance, not the image...

I found the photographer's impressions noteworthy.
I think this camera just needs to get widely released already.

I'm not sure what can be gleaned from reduced resolution web images. As Vivek stated, the India pics could have been taken with any number of cameras. I also made this comment earlier in the thread...lots of cameras can make similar images.
The question really is, would one rather carry a big DSLR with big fat lenses, or a much smaller lighter kit that gives equivalent or better performance; i.e., IQ.
Back to definitions!
But equivalent is equivalent.
Yes I edited my post right before you replied...to add two letters.
I changed the name of the thread again....got tired of the formerly.....
Kit, Check eBay. All sorts of adapters for the X Pro 1 to various other mounts are already available!
Well, great. I don't know what processing that CV 15/4.5 had on the X-Pro1, but the image looks good. As well, I have no idea how the image from the NEX 5N looks so poor—I have seen truly excellent images with that combination (but again, do not know what processing was used).
The same lens on the GXR is a personal fave, and that's without any in-camera tweaks.
The 15 on the X-Pro1 is not particularly sharp at the corners, but the lack of color shift is interesting.
I expect to get an update from the regional Fuji rep today, or tomorrow. Thanks for the comment, BTW. No longer at Precision though.
OK here you go:

Hi Mark, everything still on target for end of month on the X-Pro1?
I'm contacting everyone on the pre-order list to separate the sure
customers from those on the fence.
Reply: "yes for sure"
Just as I was debating between a Nex 5n and a Nex 7, this comes along.
Of course that doesn't mean that we are seeing his best images that might be reserved for paying clients!
