Excerpt: I got this camera with the 18-55 lens a week before leaving for a 3 week trip to Asia. Having used SLRs for 44 years and digital since 2000 this was a learning experience. My goals in getting this camera were to have something that was lighter than a DSLR, easy to use and more hands on like the 'good old days'. Those goals were met.
Pros: Good in Low Light, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact
I'm excited about owning a camera for the first time in many a moon.

Summary: I'm trying to recreate the Leica M experience in a modern digital camera and I think I may be a huge step closer having just acquired the X-Pro 1. It's early days yet but I love the viewfinder and the ergonomics of this camera. I did put the larger grip on the accommodate my big paws. If I can feel it the way I could my old Leica M, so I don't have to look at it to know what it's doing, what it's set at, I'll be a happy camper.
Summary: Such wonderful images... but it takes some skill as the learning curve is sharp on this camera. Not quite ready to be my main camera on a job, but I will always take it for the film like quality of its shots.
Excerpt: Simply the best apsc sensor available today. The range finder styling, and the size and weight of this camera suits my needs perfectly. Fuji's support through firmware updates has improved the camera's functionality immensely since its introduction. The wide range of Fuji X mount lenses makes this a true system camera body.
Excerpt: I have used Canon gear for a long time until I got the Fuji X100. After that I carry that camera with me all the time. It just delivers great image quality and functionality in a small package with a fixed 35mm equiv. lens. After a while I thought that it would be great if I could have a similar setup as I did with the Canon with the portability I got with the x100. I started looking for other cameras in Fuji´s lineup.
Pros: Accurate auto-focus, Accurate colors, Easy To Use, Good Image Quality, Good in Low Light, Great Lenses, Hybrid Viewfinder, Small / Compact
Excerpt: The X-PRO1 IMO is one of the most underrated cameras in the last few years. It's really unfortunate the X-PRO1 had a few nagging issues when first released due to the lack of support in Lightroom and Camera Raw. And the autofocus lagged a bit, and some of that might have been the fault of lenses that prevented faster autofocus. After a bunch of firmware updates, the X-PRO1 is now a better camera than when it was first released.
Pros: Easy To Use, Good Image Quality, Good in Low Light, Large Clear LCD, Nice Body Color, Short Lag Time, Small / Compact
A Great Camera -- As Long as You Remember its Limitations and Capabilities

Summary: First, a background. I shoot primarily with Nikon, even though I have a Leica system (M8.2, M9). While I get great shoots with the Nikon, I thoroughly enjoy shooting with the Leica. I bought the X-Pro 1 because of several reviews that claimed that it was a Leica done right (a paraphrase of Ken Rockwell's review). I have used it on several tours and guess what - it is great. The picture quality is wonderful. The handling is nice.
Excerpt: In my limited experience with this camera the image quality is superb. It excels in sharpness, freedom from fringe artifacts, noise, real-world dynamic range, and color rendition. I've only used sRGB with in-camera JPG conversion. The low noise (high ISO) opens up possibilities. The user interface is better than I expected from having studied the manual. The "Quick" menu button works well.
Pros: Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Large Clear LCD
Overall a very nice camera, I'm sure Fuji will do better

Summary: This was the first flagship XF mount mirrorless camera that Fuji did, it was a greatly done. Over all it's a very stylish RF looking mirrorless camera, the sensor produce incredible image in low light with pleasing color, the OOC JPG is among the best.
Excerpt: I wanted this camera when it was first released, but it was beyond reach. Lately with the price dropping and the bundled lens discounts, I decided to purchase it - even though it's now two-year old technology. <br /><br />The most obvious aged-technology is the EVF. It's a bit dated (already). But the OVF is beautiful and if that's your thing, then the EVF is a moot point. Another oft "complaint" is the slow (by today's standards) auto-focus.
Pros: Good Image Quality, Good in Low Light, Nice Body Color
