Although the X1D is designed to be portable, it still handles like a studio camera. The X1D isn’t a speed demon, at least when you compare it to a DSLR. The leaf shutter inside the lenses make the X1D more lightweight, but it also slows it down. This is a camera for making thoughtful frames, not catching fleeting action. It works well for landscapes or even studio photographers who like to move around more during a shoot.
