It managed to stop raining enough for me to try some test shots with the Voigtlander 20mm Nikon fit lens on my X-Pro 1. Though the lens performance is not as good as the 35mm f/1.4, it has the advantage of being able to zone focus with it, and it is very easy to use in good light. The manual focusing routine is very easy to get to grips with, and wasn't actually that much slower than using the AF!! As I mentioned yesterday it also means that the camera activity is much reduced and the whole thing is much quieter to use.

In fact, though I was only shooting for about 20 minutes, it was actually an enjoyable experience, and I realised that finally I had stopped thinking about the camera and what it was doing, and just concentrated on taking pictures. I've included some 100% blowups, though theres nothing particularly special here. 

There isn't the same accurate colour as before, which perhaps isn't surprising, since I imagine there is a fair amount of "adjusting" going on with the Fuji / 35mm lens combination.

However its an encouraging start, and I'm looking forward to getting my m-mount adapter to see how my Voigtlanders perform with that.
