Awesome shots. The color and detail that this chip produces is really superb.

Here's a small selection of shots taken over the last couple of days with the 35mm.













I have found this camera a joy to use.

A quick "from the hip" shot from the X-Pro1's first street outing. B&W conversion in SEP.

I have to admit that I am in love with this camera system! I did manage to get the 60mm here in SC last week and love it as well. I think for wide angle I am going to go with the Voigtlander Super Wide Heliar 15mm f/4.5 M instead of the system 18mm lens...

I've been thinking about doing the same thing. The thing has such amazing performance at high ISO, that I think I could live with f4.5 on my wide lens.

Initial image samples using my 15mm Heliar via Kipon adapter have been less that promising. Some anomalies that I am seeing makes me suspect my adapter. With a subject at infinity focus, the periphery is soft, but markedly more so on the right side of the frame. However, when I used my 50 Summicron with the same adapter, the images was tack sharp across the whole frame. I'd like to try another version of the 15mm, but I'll probably have to settle for experimenting with my 21mm as well. Hopefully I can narrow down the issue to either the lens or the adapter.

I really don't think that there is an incompatibility issue with wide angle M lenses on the X-Pro 1 in general. It really appears to be more of a sample specific issue. Obviously, I intend to experiment some more with my M lenses, but I wouldn't mind picking up the 14mm Fuji that is supposed to be released in the Fall. If it's anything like the 35, I would be quite pleased.

Example from another art opening. 18/2 @ f/2, ISO 3200, in-camera JPG w/standard "Provia" setting & minimum noise reduction (no NR in post):



More here:

A few of the tighter shots were taken w/a 35/1.4 borrowed from a friend (@ f/1.4).

Would you please update us as you work with this lens? I cannot believe that the Kipon adapter could be the blame. It is a CNC machined metal part and should be totally parallel!

It is, indeed. He's the CEO of The Planetary Society now. He draws amazing crowds, especially at events like the USA Science & Engineering Festival, of which this was a part.

My cv28/3.5 with the same adapter is also softer on the left side. It isn't on other cameras (film). Maybe the lens has a decentered element or other problem that the digital sensor is unforgiving enough to show it, but I doubt it. I too suspect the adapter.

On the other hand I'm yet to see a symmetrical wide lens that is sharp corner to corner on this camera.

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.


^^a lioness getting a bit of a bath


^^the frogs are among my favorites at the zoo


^^owls are another favorite.


^^sure wouldn't want to find this guy on my deck. good thing I don't have a deck


^^somebody got a bit turned around, oops


^^this guy just kept going back and forth, back and forth


^^the nautilus is my favorite animal, hands down


^^meerkats have very expressive faces


^^ugly sucker was looking straight at me! kind of freaky


^^ending with probably the cutest photo I have ever taken - a shy prairie dog

Ranthambhore Ranger

Here is a shot of one of the Ranthambhore, India Tiger Reserve park rangers and his
magnificent mustache - taken with the Macro 60
and lightly processed to B&W in CS5. 1/90 @ f5.6 ISO 500:

The next frame in the folder is a crop of the close up of the ranger's eye.

Please look large in both cases. The quality is really quite amazing IMHO.

Shot with the 35mm 1.4 at ISO 6400 in available light at twilight my dark living room. I did adjust levels, sharpen slightly and add a bit of grain in LR4.

Went down to visit some friends last weekend. They own a yoga studio and I wanted to do some promo shots for them. So we set up an impromptu studio in their studio.
It gave me a chance to try the XPro1. I believe this was with the 60.

I have to tell you, I am using this new system for 90% of all my photography now! I have the Voigtlander Super Wide Heliar 15mm f/4.5 M coming today as well. The only thing that I am using my Canon system for now are Lightning shots and high speed water drop collisions! I still have a Panasonic GH2 Infrared system as well and when I travel I will take the XP1, X100 and GH2 ONLY!
