Excerpt: I was looking for a great starter camera and tool to start learning about photography. I am very happy with the camera and the XF-18-55. The lens is no ordinary kit lens that was just bundled together with the camera. It's a really nice lens. Both the E-X1 camera and XF lens feel very solid.
Pros: Easy to Use, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Battery Life, Good in Low Light, Great Resolution, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact
Summary: if you have been considering getting into mirrorless APS-C - either moving up from a smartphone or down from an DSLR - this is a good deal. The used bodies are cheap, and since they are built like a tank, they should work fine (unless abused).
Summary: bought a brand new x-e1 and love it! this is an incredible camera. if you can't afford the fuji x-e2, get this one. it's just as good! pros: if you come from old-school 35mm film cameras you'll appreciate the design. images are excellent, even better the the expensive top cameras.
Excerpt: I wanted to buy the 18-55 lens. The lens alone was [$]. Then lens and camera together were [$]. So I bought the camera for [$]. And it's worth ten times that! All the Fuji cameras with the 16mp x-trans sensor are superb. All I'll ever need.
Pros: Easy to Use, Fast Shutter Speed, Good in Low Light, Great Resolution, Small / Compact
Excerpt: This is a wonderful camera - well thought-out, excellent materials and construction. Immediately upon receiving the camera, I upgraded the firmware. In "Set-Up 3" menu is a feature not documented in the manual, "PREVIEW EXP. IN MANUAL MODE".
A lot of money for what you get. Don't pay too much for it if you get one used!

Summary: As a long -time fan of Fuji, especially their classic lenses and great films, I wanted to like this camera. Many great features, such as easy-to-use and handy exposure compensation, and manual adjustments are spoiled by a few details that are very important in this type of camera. Downsides?
