You cannot see it here because of the small size of the images, but the use of the Leica lenses resulted in incredibly sharp photos. So my initial thinking on this camera is to use it as a companion body to my Leica M9. The Fuji accepts all the Leica lenses, has the benefit of extending the focal length range out to 200mm, and adds macro focusing with its own lenses, a feature that the Leica does not have. Together they make a very complete package.

|All of these photos were taken in late afternoon light with the Leica 135mm Telyt lens mounted on a Fuji X-Pro1. The Fuji Leica adapter is not available yet. I bought a third party adapter from a company called Kipon selling them on eBay.|
|This view was taken from the north, shooting directly into the late afternoon sun. This blasted out all detail in the sky and left the buildings in a high-key light.|
