    Got a chance to play a bit Saturday with my new X Pro 1. I am amazed at the jpg rendering of the greens. A bit of noise is present at 800 ISO.

    As everyone else has said this is not a camera for beginners, be patient and it will reward you... My keeper rate wasn't terribly high this first time out, but I kinda like this shot.

    those colours are popping! Is that straight out of camera, or processed?
    congrats on your camera, by the way :smile:

    thanks. all i did in LR is about +5 on lights and -5 on darks for a tad more contrast. No color adjustments at all.

    Great colors, Paul, and nice use of shallow DOF. Did you find you had problems with the pinks on the flowers? I've noticed blown out reds/magentas/pinks shooting with mind----easy enough to correct in post, but surprised nevertheless.

    Regarding blowing out reds, I need to exposure to the left a tad. I would rather try and recover from shadows rather than bring down highlights. This shot is purposely underexposed from what the meter said I should do. I do the same with my Nikons.
