Thanks to my "gear-pusher" friend Riccardo, some weeks ago I had the opportunity to test the long awaited Fuji X-Pro 1 for a weekend. The camera was a standard production unit. Riccardo also provided me with the new Fujinon 35mm f1.4 prime. As I recently recalled in this blog, I have been the happy user of a Fuji X100 (see my review here) for a year now, so much so that great were my expectations when I went to collect the two gorgeous black boxes concealing the new camera and lens.
This is a photograph I shot today inside Zaha Hadid's Maxxi Museum in Rome using my brand new Olympus OM-D E-M5 and Panasonic 14-14mm lens at a whoping ISO 1250 sensitivity. The camera really impresses me. Apart from the usual insane Olympus' menu system (which is so poorly translated in Italian that I had to switch it back into English) its operation is flawless. Design and build are close to pefection, and as far as image quality is concerned the kit I used delivers well. I'll come back to this new gem with an upcoming review. Stay tuned.
