Excerpt: This Fuji XE1 and 18-55 lens has proved to be much better than I was expecting- and I have expectations ;) First off - for the price this is a crazy good deal and after firmware updates this little camera operates smooth and quick- at least plenty quick for me. I generally shoot stills, abstract, landscape, street, etc... Love the user control this camera provides. But most important- this camera is fun!
Excerpt: Price, for what you get, the Fujifilm X-E1 with the XF 18-55mm f/2.8-4.0 kit lens is a good deal. I was looking for a digital version of my sturdy old totally manual Pentax K1000 rangefinder that I formerly used all over the world in many terrains, and was initially shocked to see I might have to ante up the price of a new car for a Leica.
Pros: Easy to Use, Good in Low Light, Great Resolution
Excerpt: I'm advanced hobbyist that used to be a professional wedding/portrait photographer. I use the X-E1 as a blog tool and to build my collection of Pacific Northwest photographs.I love the ergonomic rangefinder style controls that allow me to concentrate on my subject, composition and lighting. I love the low light capabilities that produce usable pictures at 6400 ISO.
Pros: Easy to Use, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Battery Life, Good in Low Light, Great Resolution, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact, Well Positioned Controls
Summary: If you could become a friend of the - for my taste a few - small viewfinder, you'll get phantastic shootings for you travels through the world. Very quiet shutter. viewfinder indications perfect,too. with adapters so many good lenses usuable. When using strange lenses with an adapter, x-e1 shows in viewfinder just the brightness of picture, which you find later memorized on sd-card.
Pros: what a system cam!!! very high sharpness, very natural colors
Summary: very well made, yet still somehow lighter than I expect. Operation is similar to trditional film RF cameras, which ia what I love. Maybe I should get a pro1 instead. But for the price, it is good enough.
Excerpt: I use this body for street photography. The images are tac sharp, the film simulations are fun to use, and the camera is good for your photography as well. Its all manual settings make you think as you shoot. I do wish it had a better grip on the right side.
Pros: Fast Shutter Speed, Good Battery Life, Good in Low Light, Great Resolution
