My question is ! what is your workflow including PP to get the best out of X1 or is the X2 a better choice.

To start with the good ones: manual exposure is even easier than with the M9.

Hi, can you explain what you mean by this? How can it be easier?

Interesting. Not a speed issue, at all. May I suggest that you set your focus point to '1 Point' or 'Spot'. Place the single zone precisely on that part of the subject which is top priority for sharpness. Even when using the OVF I can guesstimate where that spot should be for medium to distant subjects. If you use multi-zone or Face Detection, AF will choose the nearest point IT thinks is where you want sharpness. That is where errors and disappointments occur.
... AF only was a bit frustrating to me because focus was not where I want. ...

Now I use the same PP presets in Lightroom 4.3 as for the M8 with very good results. It is hard to point out which was the M8 only when you look to the fine detail. But when it comes to print I am sure no one can say which was the M8 and the X1.

Is there in LR4.3 a present for M8 that you use for your x1 too, or do you have your own present for M8 that you use for X1?

I have my own preset for the M8. I use Raw Photo Processor for developing the Raws first. Then the lens correction in LR esp. the 28 2.8 and after my preset. Thats it. For bw of M8 I use no IR filter and a special Tri X preset in RPP and not a Lightroom preset.

No, of course it depends on aperture, if set at 8 or 11 it works with no problems.

with any "hyperfocus" system the distance will always be approximate whether shot at f/8 or f/2.8 ... of course you get a larger DOF w/ f/8 or f/11 than f/2.8....
