Hands down the worst piece of equipment I've ever used in 20 years in photography. I'd read numerous reports about the slow focus, and was prepared to be patient with it. Nothing prepared me for how inaccurate it was. It was usable with the 35mm lens, but completely useless with the 60mm. Then there's the framing / guide lines. They are shockingly inaccurate. I'm accustomed to some moderate degree of inaccuracy, like on a Polaroid Land camera, but these were just absurd. I could get better results by shooting from the hip than using its viewfinder. Technology aside, the ergonomics are a disaster. I don't understand how Fuji failed to notice that a lens cap that requires you to first remove the lens hood to put it on or take it off is a bad idea? This rental was a complete waste of money. If you need a compact camera like this, spend the extra money and get the Leica. Yes it's expensive, but at least it is useable.

The Fuji X-Pro 1 forgoes an optical low-pass filter in favor of a proprietary way of countering false color and moire patterns. The lack of a low-pass filter allows for sharper images, making the X-Pro's 16MP cropped sensor perform more like a full frame 21MP DSLR. The X-Pro 1 also sports optical and electronic viewfinders with magnification options, giving you a "live view" preview of your image in the viewfinder while shooting. The build of the camera harkens back to the film era, with a die-cast aluminum top and base, a leather-like finish, knurled texture on the mode dials, and engravings on the top plate. This camera is ideal for street photography, crowded events, retro enthusiasts, and lightweight general shooting.
Very nice camera. Lighter than I expect. Good body design. We did a compare with the M8. The quality of the picture is no compare-able. But The option, the technologies of the fuji is way better than the M8. The electronic viewfinder is easier to use than the conventional rangefinder view finder on the M8. Very easy to focus when taking photo out-side with sunlight too bright, some how the M8 is harder to focus cause of too much sun-light that reflex in the viewfinder. Fuji also have many different language, include Vietnamese, which I really like. Help me a lots to understand the options better than English.
