FUJI X-PRO 1 Voigtlander 35mm f/1.2 - ISO 6400

Yesterday I was confronted by lots of grey cloud that took a long time to pass before the sun came out again. I was in the grounds of Pershore Abbey so thought I would take the opportunity to go inside and check out the X-Pro 1's low light abilities in the pretty dark interior. 

The above shot was taken using ISO 6400 with my Voigtlander 35mm f/1.2 lens at f/2.8, hand-held. This is a 4 picture stitch put together in Photoshop CS6 > Photomerge. This was using the out of camera jpgs. If you click the image > flickr > Actions > View all sizes > Original you will find a larger version of the file.

I think its pretty impressive. What I like about these Fuji high ISO files is that you do get a decent amount of detail coming through. The raw files were nowhere near as good as this and were, in fact, pretty noisy. However Fuji have come up with excellent jpg. processing here.

One of the diffficulties with the X-Pro 1 is the screens slow refresh rate in low light and the smearing that this produces. However even in the dark environment, made worse by the fact that I only had my prescription sunglasses with me!! I still managed to get the images focused.

This one below was taken at f/1.2 & ISO 6400 and is again very good indeed. These and the other pictures I took are certainly the best results I've ever achieved in a situation like this.
