Novoflex and Rayqual does produce adaptor for X-pro. I guess its don't cost much. But 3rd party lens mean no calibration or maybe sharpness, distortion, colour mess up. I like ultra wide angle lens

Mirrorless is not DSLR "see through lens". Image output are digitised by software correction. Assume an UWA lens having high distortion, the in-cam software auto correct it stretch and stitch. I think this could be reason of loss detail in some cases and Fuji RAW not supported by 3rd party. Anyhow, Fuji done a fantastic work and their compact APS-C IQ really put DSLR crop sensor to shame. I was thinking to place order on X series soon. For my next category of underwater, if the casing available. Just my 2cen.

Great that you appreciate your cam. I think what SooHK means conversion quality in third party software. Normally Raw Processor read raw data from raw files. Normally raw files are not corrected. What you see in your camera screen of a raw file is a copy of the processed jpeg attached to the raw file.

Raw file data are raw sensor data... no correct is applied.

No doubt result form the fujifilm is great but whether it fit someone workflow will be another important point when say the camera system is good. I myself like fujifilm result, hope one day it reach the maturity of hasselblad, nikon and canon or follow Pentax and Leica use DNG as the raw file format.

and change the tripod screw hole to the middle, don put it close to the battery door. It is hard for me to take off the plate or change battery. It is hard for me to get a nodal point without get a special plate for it.

Great thing is they are going to have full frame next year or so, by then maybe I will join you Share more picture ya... keep the poison going...

yeap @calvin that what I meant, I have been using Sony mirrorless system for 2 years ++ (i.e when nex is introduced) and also cannon dslr apsc for 6 years and now full frame user.

I would love to replace my current mirrorless system to fuji but the issue on lightroom or Adobe raw converter was highly publicize all over the internet that what making me think thrice.

I love the fuji prime lenses and details using their own raw converter but I would love to maintain my current workflow which has been using close to 3 years ...

Do share more, @ tripixel...
