Excerpt: The actual bottom line is that I should have bought this camera earlier. The hybrid viewfinder is OK compared to the X-t1 but come on, a deal like the one I got does not come along every day. Image quality is superb!
Excerpt: Clearly specs lag the latest Sony cameras - but just as a object to own and operate it is awesome. Love the rangefinder viewfinder.

Pros: Good Image Quality, Good in Low Light, Great Lenses, Joy To Operate

Pros: Good Image Quality, Good in Low Light, Large Clear LCD, Nice Body Color
Excerpt: Okay, I'm old; My comfort zone is running a Nikon F2. I can almost run one in my sleep, it is a real camera. I have owned several Digital SLRs over the years; they drive me nuts. They are video game-like gizmos.
Pros: Easy To Use, Good Image Quality, It's Almost A Real Camera
Excerpt: Was looking for a camera that I can take everywhere. When I saw this camera deal I couldn't pass it up. Looked at all the reviews and a lot of the ones I've read upon were before some of the firmware updates. The few I did see after the installed updates, were very positive.
Pros: Good Image Quality, Good in Low Light, Small / Compact
Excerpt: X-Pro1 Love It's small and light. It takes HD Movies, and uses film simulation if chosen. Has a RAW conversion processing with options to make JPEGs from raw files. Two continuous frame rates to choose from. Barely noticeable noise between ISO 200 and ISO 6400. I like that. High range is ISO 25600.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast/accurate auto-focus, Good Image Quality, Good in Low Light, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact
Summary: I bought this camera to have a light weight alternative to mu Nikon D300. A recent shoulder replacement has made it difficult for me to hold the camera steady and in some positions. The X - Pro ! arrived 2 days ago and I was very pleasantly surprised at just how good a camera it really is!
