    I am the proud father of my new baby, a X-Pro1 (thank you Ray). So ... I'm finally in the club.

    ?? Ray sold you his X-Pro1?? Or did he just convince you to join the club?

    Welcome Gary!

    This is my question, too - although I don't think Ray will part with his X-Pro1. I'm thinking the latter. :)

    Neither. I first purchased a XE-1, he convinced me to get the Pro. Yesterday, I had the XE-1 and today the Pro, tomorrow I shoot.

    LOL ... It was pure impulse. Pretty low on the learning curve right now. Reading the manual and just slipped in a battery. (Roozbeh is a happy camper.)

    Dunno yet, gonna give it a spin in Chinatown tomorrow. Got the kit lens, (to trigger the discount). and the macro. I think I should have purchased the 18mm or 14mm as well for more saving but at a great expense of my bank account.

    Thanks, Amin. I'll see what a real camera can do, lol. (It does feel like an old friend, my trusty M3.)

    I hear you.
    I got the kit and 14mm for my X E1 and now Roozbeh says I can still get $300 off the 35mm which I hate to pass up.
    Have fun in Chinatown..Gung Hay Fat Choy! Year of the snake I think..

    Thank you Phoenix. Struggling a bit with the set-up, time to read the manual.

    The God of Fire ... he owns OC Camera, a shoppe in Mission Viejo that Dave and I both frequent, but have yet to run into each other.
