Very interesting article from a true expert. For a Leica owner very thought provoking. I actually ordered the X Pro1 yesterday and will decide within the next few weeks whether it will replace my M9. The combination of X Pro1 sensor and native lenses produces results which are very convincing, including your above shots with the 60mm.

I really like the free RPP 64 (beta) RAW converter that now also supports the XP1:

Pretty crispy. Deals well with high DR. Uses the entire sensor area (extra pixels, yay!) and renders that old-fashioned film-like look retro camera lovers tend to like. While this pic comes from a pre-production camera with pre-production lens, I still uploaded the full-res file to Flickr.

DPReview has given the X-Pro1 the "Studio Scene" treatment. It looks very clean at any ISO but shows up as being a bit soft, and the jpeg files are listed as being only about half the size (~5Mb) as other cameras with similar resolutions. Is there something a bit odd happening there? Doesn't seem right...

I saw the same thing, Nic. I compared against my K-01 and the XPro1 looked soft... I figured something is going on there, because the K-01 is known to have a stronger AA filter. Maybe they don't have the conversion settings quite dialed in yet.

Yeah, I meant to say that I think something was wrong with their XPro1 setup, not that the K-01 was better. It has to be noticeably sharper than the K-01, given the AA filter, etc.

One from yesterday with the Contax 100-300 at 300mm (handheld).



I find it interesting that in many forums (not here, of course), there are a lot of people scrutinizing this camera for any real or imagined flaw.....and FLOGGING it.

For the record, I have never had a focussing error, it has a file that easily matches the ISO performance of my 5D2, it's lack of an AA filter puts it on par with the Ricoh GXR A12 M-mount but with more MP's, and the Fujinon 35/1.4 is an amazing lens at a ridiculously low price point.

Here's a shot with the 35mm

Rich, you sly dog...I should have known you'd be getting ahold of this wonderful camera! Thanks so much for your photos...except they're making me a bit jealous. Lovely color and black and white pictures - there's something quite film like about them, I think....or at least that's how they feel to me.

you should be able to figure it out...
Hadn't done any shooting since I got back from NYC, so I took the X-Pro out for a walk the other day. Shooting around home is a real letdown after NYC, but I'll get over it. Just trying to wake my eyes back up - I think they needed a nap after such an intensive month.

I used the 18 and 35, but these are all the 18.

Ray.....your NYC stuff is off the charts. I bookmarked your Flickr page and go there every few days. Pretty awesome stuff.
