Palm Trees

Above taken with Fujifilm X-Pro 1 and 14mm lens, raw file converted to tiff using Silkypix and then Nik HDR Efex applied in Photoshop.

I love the X-Pro 1, which I traded my Nikon D7000 for, having switched both my other DSLR bodies to FX (full-frame) variants, and sold off most of my DX lenses, the otherwise excellent DX D7000 was a bit 'orphaned' in my kit bag. I would have hung onto it, but as Nikon continues to have a confused strategy for DX lenses, I've now bought into a parallel system, and I'm very glad that I did.

The X-Pro 1 is not exactly compact for a 'Compact System Camera', but is more so than a DSLR and is substantially lighter, despite it's tough build. All the lenses I've tried (14/18/35/60) are excellent, and there's already enough range there to satisfy me.
