Fujifilm X-Pro 1: my impressions
My take on the X-Pro 1:
Great looking body, excellent ergonomics, excellent viewfinder (except the fact that it has no diopter correction whatsoever).
Rather fast operation. Surprisingly good buffering and write times using 6fps continuous drive mode (after the X100 I was expecting less).
Clumsy AF. Don't like the choice between AF speed and minimum focus distance.
EXCELLENT LENSES. Fast, sharp, extremely pleasing bokeh.
RAW files... Wow, just wow. Opened in RPP, exported as 16-bit TIFFs and then edited in Lightroom they are mind-bogglingly good. When I first saw an ISO 6400 shot (and taken in a really low light) I didn't believe my eyes.
Some shots to follow.

Looking forward to the photos Pavel!
Current Gear: A little bit of this and a little bit of that, but want more!

Another thing to like about the X-Pro 1: its shutter sound. It's so soft, so pleasant...

I got mine today. I'm rather smitten at the moment. It feels really nice in my hand and although the focus is not very fast, it's not as bad as I'd feared. The Q menu makes all the difference to me. I took about 30 pics in the garden straight off and felt that they were all wonderful (of course they aren't but I'll have to have a cull tomorrow!) but the image quality is outstanding. Somehow this lens just makes even mundane things look good :)

I'm assuming you have the 35? I now have all three and while I really have no issues with the 18 and the 35, the 60 seems to be a bit of a struggle for me when using the optical viewfinder. So, when I throw the 60 on I just switch to the electronic viewfinder and it seems to work like a charm. After learning on the x100, the xpro is almost second nature, and I have to agree, the q menu is awesome!

The best way to develop Fujifilm X-Pro 1 RAW files so far:
1) Load into RPP, set exposure, WB and black point
2) Export as 16-bit TIFFs
3) Import and adjust in Lightroom as desired (noise reduction, etc)
