    Introduce Yourself

    Welcome to the forum. If you are coming from the film world you're in for a surprise. The good news is that once you're adjusted to the digital aspects, you may find yourself looking to simplify things again, that's what happened to me after a 30 year gap. I think choosing the X-pro 1 and two primes is a great starting point. If you have some of your old lenses, you'll be happy to learn there are a number of adapters out there that will let you use those older lenses again.

    Makes sense. Did you know you can get adapters that will let you use other lens mounts on a Fuji x-mount camera? I have one for FD and EF. The older ones are better though as they usually give you control over the aperture. Focus peaking makes manual focusing a breeze. Also they're not that expensive.

    Welcome to the forum. I agree with you that investment in glass is the smart way to go. my fav. fuji lens is my 35mm 1.4, give it a try if you can it is a wonderful lens.

    Introduce Yourself

    Hello from Orleans Ontario Canada. I retired from a desk job 5 years ago. I'm a cancer survivor and am partially blind (I can see detail in my right eye but it too is failing). I have been using an X-Pro 1 on and off for 2 years and now have decided to make the full-time switch and sell my Canon gear (5D Mk iii). I'm making the change because I discovered I really like the rangefinder camera especially the hybrid used by Fuji. In terms of a background, while I have taken a couple courses and workshops, I'm self-taught. With the help of a mentor I began a journey to learn about art and photography in art. I'm looking forward to hearing new voices from this forum.
