Took my x-pro1 to the national zoo with a couple of good friends. Hope nobody minds me sharing about a dozen photos from the day. I'm quite happy with the results. I used the 35/1.4 lens and also my 100/4 smc macro tak and my 200/4 smc tak.
Focusing with the adapted lenses was quite easy. But, handholding on a cloudy day (dim lighting) with the 200/4 was very difficult. All the photos with that lens came out reasonably sharp, good enough for small web prints anyway, but critical sharpness was somewhat rare. Bringing along my tripod would have helped but would have seriously annoyed the crowds at the zoo.
A lot of the photos below we taken at iso 3200. Some were two stops underexposed at iso 3200 and recovered quite nicely. I've tried to take similar photos in the past, years ago with my d70 and more recently with my e-p2 and the photos were hopelessly noisy and unusable. The x-pro1 lets me go where no camera (of mine) has gone before....successfully.
I had a great time and I really love the camera and the results it delivers.
^^golden lion tamarin
^^beautiful little jellyfish. About the size of a silver dollar, not including the tendrils
^^pygmy falcon. the slight grid patterning in the photos is because the photo was taken through a fine metal mesh. Unfortunately, this situation affected a lot of my photos but it cannot be helped. This is an example of a photo that was 2 stops underexposed at 3200 iso.
