    Hi Gang,
    Just joined today and posted an introduction in the Intros and Welcome forum. I just found this forum today.

    I've had my X-Pro1 since November 2012, and it has completely revitalized and refreshed my love for photography.

    Here's some of the first shots I took with my XP1 after getting it in late 2012:

    Ah, for a glass of wine from the Napa Valley...and to be sitting there or by that lighthouse sipping it!

    Stephen - very nice images. 'Glad you are enjoying your new X Pro1, I'm liking mine the more I use it especially the OVF. By the way, the lighthouse image is exceptional. Well seen.

    Thanks, David, Actually, I've had my X-Pro1 for well over a year now; those photos were some of the very first I took back when I got mine in Nov. 2012 (before all the good firmware upgrades came out). Thanks for comments on the Lighthouse shot, that certainly was the best photo I had taken with the X-Pro1 up to that point in time. I took that shot on Dec. 20, 2012, and it was bitterly cold out with a strong wind blowing. I waited and waited for the light at sundown to get just right....and thought I would freeze in the interim. I took that with the Fuji 18mm lens, and I was so cold and the wind was blowing so hard that I was worried about motion blur in the shot from shivering from the cold and the wind pushing me around.

    Looking through the archives and found some additional images that were amongst the first I ever took with my X-Pro1

    Pamponio State Beach near Half Moon Bay, CA


    The lighthouse at Pigeon Point. This was a 30 second shot at f/5.6; and it was REALLY dark. The light you see on the lighthouse and fence was from the cabins across the sidewalk. Shows nicely the dynamic range of the camera.

    Where I used to work at our Pleasanton, CA site (sigh...I miss working there)


    My favorite sushi place in Pleasanton, CA. ISO 6400!
