* RANT ALERT*

Fed up of my X Pro1, what's the point of a top of the range camera which can't focus on a subject a mobile phone can nail. On Sunday when I took these, I felt like packing the X Pro1 up and sending it back to Fuji telling them to ram it where the sun don't shine.

*RANT OVER* ( along with my partnership with Fuji )

So you've either been using this camera for a while and then randomly decided you hated it's focus system despite having learned it's weaknesses (or at least one would think), or you just bought one recently, took it out and took a few shots and decided it was the worst thing ever. The camera is known for having below average focus, the new models have resolved those issues. You're lack of knowledge going into buying the camera is your own fault, just about everyone out there (Fuji shooters included) will tell you that the X-Pro1's AF is far from stellar.

Actually I've had it for a couple of years, nearly all of which its spent in one of my camera bags because the AF is garbage. You can defend Fuji all you like, a top of the range camera which can't reliably hit focus on a high contrast, static target, in excellent light should never have hit the shelves. And it's actually known for its slow AF, I bought it for static objects, of which it still can't hit them reliably.

Don't blame me for Fuji's shortcomings. How can you "learn a cameras shortcomings" if it's shortcomings are sometimes it will hit target and sometimes it won't ? How do you learn to tell the difference in that ?

If you have something to offer that points out I'm doing something wrong I'm all ears. Blaming "operator error" doesn't help me or anyone else reading this thread.

Considering up until the release of the X-Pro2 there have been all sorts of people using the X-Pro1 as their main camera (including some people who shoot for a living) I have to assume operator error to some degree. I had an X-E1 (same focus system) and never had many issues with focus accuracy, it would miss on occasion, but all cameras do... it's big problem was speed, it was very slow in anything but ideal light.

Got this beauty a week ago.

Been mostly using OVF. A lot of missed shots (out of focus), but probably just me coming from a DSLR :)
Anyway, I enjoy the camera, the portability, the style, the IQ. All these shots are straight out of cam, no post processing what so ever.

All shot with the 18 f/2

Welcome to the gang. Some nice stuff there, and it's only your first week. I like the street stuff especially the yawning lady and the kid playing.

A cafe in Valencia ...

[These are old photos but I might as well add them to the thread]

The two things I disliked about the XPro1 was when someone offered to take a picture of me with the camera, I would generally cringe because it takes a bit of loving to get an infocused shot hehe. As well as the fact that my photos are a hit or miss in Lightroom5. I thought I has a lot of out of focused shots when editing. Overall it's a camera that needs a bit of loving from start to end, and the rewards are well worth it!

My other half won't even pick it up, she HATES it. Slow AF giving blurry images on a moving subject can be forgiven, on a static object its inexcusable.
