COMMENT

I have been using DSLRs for a decade. I bought my first camera when I was 16 and it was a Nikon FE. Since then, I have been using all kind of DSLRs.

Last year, I bought a FUJIFILM X-100 and I left for panama to work on a story. I had my full frame DSLR with me. After a week of work, I notice that I did not took any one pictures with my DSLR. Realizing that I sold all my DSLR equipment and got the X-Pro1 and 3 lenses.

The images quality provided by the fuji x-systems is very high and fits all my professional needs.

Of course the FUJIFILMs do not have the same performance of the modern DSLRs. Don't take a X-Pro1 if you go to the Olympics or the World Cup or if you need high speed 51 focus point and a 10 frame per second. But don't compare oranges and apple, the x system is about photography. Its a system in its own between the very expensive digital rangefinder and modern DSLR.

It's a perfect camera for documentary work.
