A friend of mine who is thinking of buying Fuji X-Pro1 asked me if it can handle children. The first thing that comes into my mind is that people are reading too much into the AF issue of X-Pro1. I know I said it myself that AF is not as fast as compared to DSLR but come on, yes, it can handle children. As a matter of fact it handles very well. On a good day, you can even shoot sports with it, why not? Fuji X-Pro1 is not DSLR but its no dud. This is a very good camera.
