A Fascination with Fujifilm

Back in the dim and distant past, well about 18 months ago, I picked up a Fujifilm X10 as a point and shoot camera and was very impressed with it. It is a relatively pocketable camera with a decent feature set and good image quality.

Six months later I added it’s big brother, the Fujifilm X100, to my collection and quickly grew to love it. The X100 has an APS-C sized sensor with a 23/2.0 lens attached, and partly thanks to the hybrid optical viewfinder is the nicest camera I’ve ever had the fortune to use. The fact that the images that come out of it are superb is the icing on the cake.

Today, after much deliberation, I finally bought the daddy of the family, the Fujifilm X-Pro1. Along with the body I picked up the 35/1.4 and 18-55/2.8-4 OIS lenses, with an 18/2.0 lens to follow once I send in the appropriate paperwork. Hopefully it’ll be even better than the X100, and may even replace it when the long-awaited 23/1.4 lens finally gets released.
