It was quite a close call last evening. I was so tempted in Sony RX1. But now I’m glad that I cancelled my move. Full frame sensor would be nice of course but I think X-Pro1’s X-Trans sensor (APS-C) is also fantastic one. What we would need though is a good RAW converter for X-Pro1 files. But I can wait it with JPEGs, no problem. RX1 is quite expensive. I wouldn’t have enough money to buy it after selling all my X-Pro1 stuff. And I haven’t even learned to use X-Pro1 properly! There are quite many shots I’ve taken with X-Pro1 which really scream out “Did I really shot that! Really!”. That’s quite a feeling. But there are many bad shots too. Mainly my fault; some of them I can count for the camera too though. I feel that the focusing still is too hunting for the low light situations. And those situations are increasing in number at the moment here in Finland, I can tell you!
So, I have to shoot more with my X-Pro1 and learn. There are some improvements in my focusing tactic as I told in the previous post. I can get more keepers in that way.
I would also like to test my Voigtländer 90mm F3.5 SL II lens with X-Pro1. That lens has Canon EF mount and I’m looking for an adapter for it at the moment. That lens really shined with my 5D Mk II and with X-Pro1 it would be a 135mm focal length. I hope I can find an adapter for it. Maybe a Kipon one.
There are also nice Fujinon XF lenses coming up for the X-Pro1 as well as new lens options from Carl Zeiss. I think those are worth of waiting.
