It's an old model but new to me. I regard the later models as 'hard drive hungry' as a 16mp sensor gives more than enough quality information for A3+ exhibition prints. Possibly the way to sell new models is the best way to increase sales....or am I too cynical in my old age? In fact My old Lumix GF1 converted to infra red does pretty much as well and only has about 12 mp at the most. Here are a selection of pic's using my 'new' old X Pro-1, bought at a small fraction of the newer models prices. Perhaps I shouldn't grumble as each new model drives down the cost of the old models for óldies'like me..
