Phewww - mind blowing !

I have just put together a new X-Pro 1 body and new 27 f2.8 which at 308 is at the top of my budget post retirement .

Back in the day , I used an inheritance to pretend affluence with a Leica M8 , due to it's analogue style interface , spoiling it somewhat with a budget CV 35 f2.5 .
I love using it in monochrome but the X-Pro 1 deal was just too tempting to pass up .
It will by necessity , be a one lens camera , but the nom 41mm is perfect for me .

However , the complexity indicated in this , and other posts makes me wonder if a pedestrian CSC with the typical kit zoom may have been a better choice !
But I love the OVF plus the handling and size suit me - reminiscent of a Yeshica Electro 35 back in the day .

Hopefully I can sort out some simplistic settings for a once in a lifetime family trip to Malaysia .

Of course , all of the choices indicated are way above my budget - and I am not going to sell the M8 .

Respect .
