When I first got my hands on an XT-1 I thought it would prove to be a good second camera - one that I'd use when I didn't want to carry around my 'serious' gear - but the more I've used it the less inclined I am to use anything else: it's small and light, a delight to shoot with, and the Fujinon lenses are truly superb.
