I am still hanging on to my X-Pro 1 but existing case needs to be replaced and I have spotted a few halfcases – nothing on the back, little on the sides and mounted with a screw in the tripod mount. But nowadays most of these are for X-Pro2; is the tripod mount in the exact same location? The AF switch?
Surely, someone will be quick and point that I should just move on to X-Pro 2 - and I might at some point. Maybe I should just buy a case, and if doesn’t fit, buy the X-Pro 2…
I've previously owned a X-Pro 1 and x100, but ultimately ditched them for film, and eventually Leica.
I've really enjoyed using zone focusing and taking autofocus out of the equation.
I'm currently saving my pennies for a Leica 21 Super-Elmar, but geeeeeeeezzzz it's expensive.
With prices on the used market, I'm being tempted by an x-series camera 14 f2.8 and 23 f2.
in my previous experience, zone focusing on an X had two big drawbacks:
the INCREDIBLY conservative DoF scale
shutter lag in manual mode, it appeared that the aperture would stop down and the camera would meter after the release was pressed and before the shutter would fire.
Have these issues been addressed through firmware updates or the new cameras?
Anyone out there with both Leicas and X Series that can comment on zone focusing with both?
