    This one shot as RAW and processed in-camera to Velvia.

    Hello Lee, looking forward to some samples using our good old English light! I'd like to see some with our usual dreary shades of grey ;)

    Beautiful, Lee - you are quite ahead of us in the spring season. I'm sure one of our devoted Moderators Mark or Bill will move this thread over to its proper home.:wink:

    Congrats on the camera!

    Yes indeed and no trouble focussing through the OVF quite close up either - the X100 has trained me well (hopefully)!

    Congrats on the XP1. I almost ordered one from Canada yesterday. But I was so good and was able to refrain. :(

    Really like that last one :smile: camera's output seems wonderful! Is there a difference in end result between shooting straight jpegs as Velvia, and shooting raw and developing it to Velvia jpeg in-camera?

    Very nice shots, but they could have been taken with a Pana G3, Oly EP3, Samsung NX200, Fuji X100, Leica X1, Pentax K-01, Sony NEX5 or 7 and others. These cameras are all "good enough" as far as file quality/IQ are concerned. So why should I/one buy a X-Pro1, what does it do to ones photography "lesser" cameras couldn't do already?
    Yes, I'm trying to stir the pot a little.:wink:

    Actually for that last one I shot RAW+F in Velvia mode, then processed the RAW to Provia in-camera. I think this is the version here. As far as I can tell, there are no differences between shooting some film simulation in JPG and creating one of the same later via in-camera RAW processing but this is something I may try out.

    One thing I did notice is that the Velvia shots seemed softer than the Provia. The latter are startlingly sharp whereas Velvia are as if the in-camera sharpening is a notch or two lower.

    I currently have a Panny G1, Pentax K5, Fuji X100 and now X-Pro 1. Since getting the X100 last year the G1 and K5 have hardly been touched. This was partly due to my loving the form factor and that viewfinder but also because I do feel the IQ is as good, if not better. I honestly wasn't going to get the X-Pro 1 and can hardly justify it at all but my local dealer has one in stock. I made the mistake (on purpose) of going in and I couldn't put it down. I was fully prepared to be disappointed, thinking there won't be much difference in IQ between it and the X100 but when I opened the first Provia JPEGs on my computer I was stunned. I don't think web-sized versions here can do it justice. OTOH this might just be a honeymoon period for me and maybe I need to compare same shots with X100. Except I can't as they are different lens focal lengths and, anyway, life is too short.

    Of course you can get these sorts of shots with any of these cameras, even an iPhone but ...

    Time will tell but at the moment I am thinking that I am getting some of the sharpest, best colour-rendition, best DR shots ever - and from JPEGs.

    Much of this is, I think, due to the quality of the 35mm lens as much as anything else ... I want to get some prints done to really tell.

    Lovely details. I'm still trying to resist badly. I do it by buying more lenses for the M9! But I am getting weak ... no more photos please!

    Thanks Lee. I'm more impressed by the colours from your UK pictures than the ones taken abroad as I have something to judge them by. Anything photographed overseas looks very exotic and can blind one to the more normal usage of a camera, if you know what I mean!

    Ok, I'll give it a rest! Just tell yourself there's nothing the X-Pro 1 can do that you can't do with an M9.
