    I think I heard that the new A7R has been re-designed and fitted with the Oly 5 axle IBIS. Ever few thing in photography are magical. The Oly 5 axle IBIS is one of those magical things.

    @Derrel .. that's kinda funny because last week I picked up four Pirellis'.

    The AF on the XT1 is fast enough for sports. I've been shooting some youth soccer and T-Ball with some success.

    But the XT1 does not track. So shooting any action with the XT1 is harder with less keepers than an advanced dSLR.

    I downsized my full-frame Canon gear last year and switched to Fuji. I'm very very pleased with Fuji overall. Excellent glass and in the end that's the most important factor. I no longer have to leave a little crop room so I can cut off the weak corners from the Canon zooms.

    Thank you Trever1t. I don't find my mirrorless AF slow, (EM5, EM1, XE2, XT1), ... but the focus certainly is different. It has taken me a lot of time behind the viewfinder to adjust from a dSLR to mirrorless.

    Gary

    PS- The XPro1 is slow compared to a dSLR ... any dSLR. It does everything slow. But to my eye, it has one sexy little body ... so I've adjusted the slow. The XP1 needs to be shot like an old film SLR, where you really need to think out your photos and shoot with an anticipatory methodology rather than the reactive shooting style of a dSLR. Shooting with the XP1 has helped me go back to my photographic roots and relearn previous skills. By applied more thought to my photos I'm getting better stuff ... less keepers, but the keepers I capture are better than with my reactionary shooting style of a dSLR. But, in a fast paced environment, the XP1 sucks ... there is nothing like an advanced dSLR for very fast action and tracking. But for most hobbyists, the AF on the upper level of mirrorless is more than sufficient, but one has to climb that mirrorless learning curve.

    Trever1t - If you're ever down this way, let me know and you can play with my mirrorless stuff. (OMD-EM1, X100S, XP1, XE2, XT1).

    I second X-T1, above all that has been written, it is fun to use. And I guess you will be surprised how little , if any IQ you will have lost. :friendly_wink:. FUJI XF lenses are wonderful.

    I used to take my 1D's everywhere. For what I shoot and how I shoot, the differences between my 1D's and Fuji's is usually insignificant. So ... et al.
