Welcome everyone new! I've been using the EVF about 75% of the time mainly since I've been shooting in low light and that helps out tremendously. Here's a shot of my mom. I failed in teaching her that her camera on her phone sucks..

Not sure if I'm the only one who sees it but do the bokeh balls look like little Stewie Griffin heads?

Nice bokeh lights ^^^^

Today I finally received my Canon FD converter and Canon FD 24mm f/2. So today was the first day I was able to try the XP1. Hopefully tomorrow I can get the ball rolling and get a good shot.

I also purchased a Canon FD 24mm 2.8 last week (before I found the F2 version) which I should be selling if anyone's interested? If anyone needs a FD to FX converter, I got mine from Rainbow Imaging which seems to work well. I'll know soon enough.

Looking forward to contributing to the thread :)

Hey Chris, did you shoot those RAW or JPG? Any tips on how to setup the DR settings? Shadows, highlights, etc?

I have a lot of experimenting to do this weekend!

So these aren't as amazing as some of the others, but this camera is amazing.. I can't wait to try out the 35 1.4 someday...

All those are SOOC JPG's. This is a RAW processed through lightroom -- I totally get the painterly look people are complaining about.

Nice shots Josh! I have a poor taste in my mouth from every 18-55 lens I've ever touched but the Fuji really is on par iq wise with the rest of the lineup so props to them.

As far as my setup, I used to be all about RAW and full manual only but this really switched things up for me. I shoot 99.99% JPEG only right now because of the lack of true RAW support. I set sharpness to +1 and color to +1 and shoot in PRO neg HI only. It gives me the most natural skin tones imho. Other than that I set it to aperture priority with auto ISO to 6400 in low light and shoot full manual in good light. I had some issues with the DR choices. I had never really read into it and set it to DR400 and that caused a problem when shooting in good light by bumping up the ISO to 800 even though I was shooting at 1/4000 and 1.4 so since that shoot I have set it to the lowest setting. I don't do any in camera nr either. It's just so good that I don't see the need for it.

Here's a random shot last night of a buddy that I've been wanting to try out.

I've yet to have that but I got a huge amount of moire the other day. In LR it was impossible to fix unlike the few times I've had it on my D800e. I'll post an example when I can. Still love the camera though!

I really wish that I could change the fn button to allow me to select the auto-focus point.

Or have the wheel scoot through the AF points, even better if you could select a round pattern to scroll around like on the 1D's used to (I had a 1DmkIII so am guessing all did)....

Not bad for ISO 3200. This isn't even a great example because I pushed it quite a bit as it was underexposed. I'm sure I could have done a better job with the noise if I spent some more time.

It's with the 18-55. The 35 1.4 will be here Thursday.. I have an addiction to this damn little camera..

Your PP is awesome -- that is definitely an area I need improvement on. Do you just pull the JPG's straight into photoshop to do curves/skin smoothing/etc?
