    Fuji X Pro review after 8000 shots

    I could be tempted to pickup another XP1 with the 35mm and use it alongside my OMD, although in the long run would need to get rid of one of them!

    Fuji X Pro review after 8000 shots

    I could be tempted to pickup an XP1 again, the OMD I've replaced mine with is good but I'm not getting the same "vibe" when I look at my images

    Fuji X Pro review after 8000 shots

    Good review, I can't argue with anything he's said really. I did feel the XP1 was a firmware update or two away from being perfect and I'm sure with the improvements we've seen on the X100 that they will come. But for me the OM-D fitted my needs better for now... that said I will keep a close...

    Best Camera for Legacy Glass?

    I'd agree with you its not easy but its better on the OMD than it was on my EP2, even just being able to set a shortcut for the magnified view is a step up from the EP2. I do think the focus peaking in the NEX is ideal for legacy glass but on a native front I feel the NEX is lacking v the OMD...

    Best Camera for Legacy Glass?

    I picked up a Fuji XP1 and didn't really like it as much, traded it the 35mm and 18mm for this kit as someone fancied trying the XP1, couldn't be happier with the OMD, its excellent with the HLD6 grip

    Best Camera for Legacy Glass?

    Well I've ended up with an OMD!! and I've managed to get a wide native glass collection with it (9-18mm, 14mm, 25mm & 45mm) so will likely only use legacy glass for longer stuff (Konica 135mm) the stabilised EVF makes it wonderful to use!

    Micro 4/3 Has m43 finally lived up to the promise?

    For me M4/3 probably has lived up to its promise, especially with the GX1 and OMD, it seems that both finally have a much improved sensor over the older Pens which is where it was lagging behind in particular the NEX. For me M4/3 is the only Compact System which has anywhere near a wide enough...

    Expired Fuji X-Pro 1 & 35mm (UK/EU)

    Well I've given the X-Pro 1 a try and frankly its the best camera I've ever had, handling is amazing and the IQ is just second to nothing I've had (never owned a FF camera though....) As much as I love it and the 35mm lens (which is astounding!!) I've tried the 18mm lens and just don't...

    Fuji Michael Reichman X-Pro 1 review is up

    I potentially think there is scope for an X-Pro and NEX in my kit, aside from having inbuilt IS I'm not sure that the OMD has any other advantage over the NEX 7 for legacy glass, it seems to be certain that with focus peaking the NEX is the best for older glass at present. Sent from my...

    Fuji Michael Reichman X-Pro 1 review is up

    I'm with you Ray I can see a use for both and while I can't see myself picking up an OMD to go with the X-Pro anytime soon I could be tempted to pickup one of the other Pen (or Panasonic) bodies eventually. That said I'd probably re-add an X100 to my collection if I want something pocketable!

    Thanks mate, I am leaning toward the 18mm if I thought the 14mm was out very soon I'd wait but who knows!

    Fuji Michael Reichman X-Pro 1 review is up

    I have to say your thinking is similar to my thoughts before purchasing the X-Pro 1. I looked at all 3 (OMD, NEX 7 and X-Pro) admittedly if I had had to pay the brand new price of around £1900 for the X-Pro 1 and 35mm it would have been no contest I would have had an OMD but I managed to get a 2...

    Fuji X-Pro - Love it!

    Thanks Chuck!!! I am leaning to the 18mm, I've been perusing images taken with it on Flickr as I've heard its not as good as the 35mm but I've seen much to like!

    Fuji X-Pro - Love it!

    Had a quick wander with the camera tonight, trying to get a feel for it and the 35mm before I decide whether to buy the 18mm or 60mm to accompany it. First was really just a test of f1.4 on the lens and the depth of field but I prefer it in B&W, converted in Silver Efex Pro 2 Bokeh by...

    Best Camera for Legacy Glass?

    I think my worry perhaps is that I've only ever had bodies with IBIS (until my current X100) and I'm not sure if peaking or IBIS would be of more value. I had been thinking about picking up a used NEX 3 or 5 simply to try peaking and see what I think.

    Dragging up one of my older threads, now that we seem to have 3 very high end Compact Bodies with the NEX 7, EM-5 and Fuji X Pro-1 how do they stack up for using legacy glass?

    Fuji Travelling lighter today, physically and mentally.

    I have to say that I've done a similar thing in that I want to simplify my gear and actually focus on the taking photos, not obsessing over gear. And its for that reason that I got rid of my m4/3 kit and picked up the X100. Its got everything I could want, amazing image quality, great build and...

    Best Camera for Legacy Glass?

    Best Camera for Legacy Glass?

    Thanks folks, I might see if I can source a NEX5N to try, I was very close to buying a NEX before but was put off by the lack of native lenses as I'd like to have one or two to go along with the legacy glass. That said the larger sensor looks very good although having IBIS in the Pen is a...

    Micro 4/3 Anyone still use an E-P1?

    I may be wrong but I believe the "base" ISO for the EP1 is actually ISO 200 so not sure if that would make a difference? In saying that I don't think anyone would argue that the sensor in the EP1 is as good as the APS-C in the NEX, if the NEX had a good range of lenses and some decent controls...

    Micro 4/3 Anyone still use an E-P1?

    Just bought a brand new EP1 and I'm loving it, image quality wise I can't say I've noticed it being any less stellar than my Pentax K20 it replaced, and with it being much smaller I'm finding its with me a lot more, they always say the best camera is the one with you! I can see me upgrading it...

    Thanks again for the input everyone, still not really decided but I've seen some excellent reviews and some cracking images taken with the NX10 so will likely have another play with it in Jessops on Monday and decide what to do, its this or an Olympus Pen I think!

    Samsung No love for the NX10 / NX100?

    I do agree the NX10 build feels a little cheap but for the price I think its good value, although I have read some stories about poor QC on the lenses but I guess if buying new I could return dodgy lenses, I'm quite tempted by an NX10 for the price it looks like I'd be paying less than I would...
