The first thing you’d notice about the camera is how beautiful it Really is. It’s a work of art. And not only does it look good, but it feels good in the hand; it feels solid, yet fragile all at once. The exposure and shutter speed dials on the top of the body are firm; you won’t be accidentally changing settings. More importantly, they’re easy to reach without having to look at the camera, though of course it’s a matter of habit from one camera to another. Most of my shooting was done through the old firmware, and I only got to test out v2.0 of the firmware on the last day. That said, the autofocus, while “slow”, wasn’t really as terribly slow as people complain about. Again, it depends on what photography you’re doing. Most of my testing consisted of portraits or inanimate scenery. My primary camera is a Canon 5D MKII, so probably that’s why I don’t see the X-Pro1 as particularly slow in focusing. There were plenty of bells and whistles hidden in the menus. Panorama shots.
