I had a brief hour free in Paris between an airport drop off and meeting and old friend, so I jumped off the Metro at La Louvre and walked quickly down towards the Eiffel Tower as I thought that would give me the best hour-long walk to be able to capture some of the sights in Paris.

The last time I was in Paris for a day I had a D300s + grip + a load of lenses in a huge backpack.  By the end of the day I was aching all over!  This time I had two cameras, but a much lighter load.  The X-Pro 1 and the X100 make great companions for travel photography, and what a difference you feel walking around with such a lightweight kit.  I had a small shoulder bag to keep which ever camera I wasn’t using safe and that was it.  I don’t see myself going back down the SLR route any time soon!
