Congratulations with your site, i really love it!
I just finished my first photo book, completely shot with the X-E1. For 90% i used the 35mm lens. I cant tell you how pleased I am with this combi!
Here’s the link to the book preview and i added some sample shots to this email: http://www.blurb.com/books/4571584-sama-sama
Hope you can show it on your blog.
Keep up the good work!

Thought you might find this interesting… the President visited FEMA headquarters today and I caught a few shots with one of the X-E1 bodies that we just picked up for in-house stuff. I’ve been reading Fujirumors.com for quite some time and I don’t recall of anyone posting photos of the President taken an X-series camera… you?
I was shooting shutter priority at 1/60, ISO ranged from 1250-2000, auto white balance – kit 18-55mm lens. I shot JPG + RAW but ended up just using the JPG files with slight post in Lightroom.

I’ve been following your website for a while and appreciate your efforts to consolidate great information. I don’t know if you post “conversion” stories or not, but here is a truncated version of mine…
I’ve been a professional wedding photographer for almost 15 years, shooting mostly film with Leicas and introducing digital reluctantly through DSLRs. About 10 months ago, rather than update my Nikon DSLRs, I bought a Fuji X-Pro1 after reading about this intriguing and unique camera online. I was hooked immediately: It worked exactly like my Leicas and felt nearly identical in my hands, and I was blown away by the image quality, especially at high ISO. It was an easy transition and the FIRST time I was actually excited about shooting digitally. I immediately ditched all of my Nikon gear and bought 3 X-Pro1 bodies with the 14, 18, 35 and 60mm primes, and recently picked up the X-M1 as a backup/personal camera. I love the cameras even more than I did when I first started, and my shoulders and back thank me at the end of a 9 hour wedding because I am carrying 1/3 of the weight!
Now that the camera has evolved through great support by Fuji and multiple firmware updates, it’s even better than it was when I fell in love with it!
Below are some of the images I made at the last wedding with the X-Pro1.
