Further Fuji X Pro 1 Observations

Yesterday I took the X Pro 1 out and did some shooting at the queen victoria market.

The light was lousey it was busy and a lot of fun. The thing that is so great about the camera is I can have it around my neck always at the ready. Because it is so small no one takes any notice of it.

The camera’s high ISO performance is nothing short of amazing. No longer do I have to be concerned about dull light or non existent light. Set the camera at say 3200 ISO and you can shoot in situations unimagnable before,

Also of interest I was shooting with the 18mm f2 lens which has some interesting quirks. Its best sharpness in my non scientific test was around f5.6 and above . As noted elsewhere it can be a bit soft in the corners wide open. I definitely believe also the auto focus is at its weakest with this lens. The strongest auto focusing is to be had with the 35 1.4 which is very snappy.

Lastly I just wanted to mention that my camera body and lenses are all working with the latest firmware.
