is there a Canon shooter on CR that owns a Fuji x-pro1, im just after a opinion on the Fuji where you like it or not?
on a side note... would'n it be wonderful if Canon made a Camera like this or even better a full frame version, arghhhhhhhhhhhhh
Well, I don't currently shoot Canon, but could always go back.
I'm madly in love with the Fuji gear I own. XPro1, 14mm, 35mm,60mm. I expect to make a few lens changes in the coming months, ending up with a kit of: 14mm, 23mm, 35mm, 56mm (+ Zeiss 100f2 vis adapter).
What do I love about it?
1-I have the XP1 (with the 35mm usually) with me always. Yes, always. No way I would carry a DLSR with me every day. Incredibly light & small.
2-IQ is oh-so-close to 5d3
3-Street photography...I get shots & portraits that I simply would not get with a DSLR. Why not? Because a DSLR intimidates people impacting their expressions, DSLR draws attention and kills spontaneity, etc, etc. Small mirrorless cameras are a revelation for street or documentary photography.
4- OVF (hybrid) is awesome
5- Back to #1...my amount of shooting and the enjoyment of photography has skyrocketed.
What's not to love about XP1 vs a DSLR?
1-slower AF...so if you're a demanding action shooter, forget it.
2-General operation is slower, but "fine".
80% of my shooting is Fuji now. My Mamiya RZ67 ProII probably next, then D800. Yep.
Fuji X-E2 is coming out in 3 weeks (Oct 18). Fuji X100s is fantastic.
Sigma DP cameras have awesome IQ, but handling & AF is horrendous.
Sony RX1R is stellar, but expensive. Olympus, Ricoh...lots of good options these days.
