Excerpt: I bought an x-e1 from hong kong before they were available in the UK and couldnt wait to get my hands on what seemed to be the ultimate in quality and value mirrorless cameras and was left unimpressed after a few months of usage. What i liked the way aperture and shutter speed A, S and M are selected - so intuitive, should be this way on all cameras focal length and speed of the prime lenses available as well as the price LCD display, sharp and useful looks cool great...
Summary: Just a few months after release, Fuji themselves discover problem after problem with the basic AF and low light AF, especially when using the lagging EVF. Fuji had postponed the latest firmware flash 3 times after discovering problem after problem. The 'kit' MSRP with 18-55 lens is at least $400 over priced, and the number of units returned using sites such as Amazon is amazing in the short 3 months since the X-E1 release.

Summary: my first DSLR was minolta 7d next was 5d mark 1 , 1ds mark2 than 5d mark 2 I have over 8years of DSLR life. I will not compare this camera to any of canon's DSLR but this is how I thought before purchase 'well everybody saying it has bad focus issue, but can not be worst then minolta 7d that was 7~8 year old. and I was happy with 7d so it shouldn't be problems to me I know how to deal with' I was wrong this camera has worst focus than Minolta 7D why 3 star? 1.
Excerpt: I liked everything about this camera ( viewfinder, lenses, shutter speed dial), but somebody between Fuji and Adobe has dropped the ball on getting the raw data files to process correctly. Evidently this new Fuji sensor is proving difficult to render outside of Fuji's own software. Processing the images with Lightromm 4.3 (or DNG 7.3) yields very soft renderings and blurring in details (they are fine, actually great, using Fuji's software) And since the Fuji X- Pro has...
Pros: Easy to Use, Fast Shutter Speed, Good in Low Light, Great Resolution
Summary: The IQ is really good with the zoom lens. But for me, the EVF is subpar for its price, and problematic enough for me to return this camera. Panning the camera while watching the EVF reveals how poorly it refreshes. This is really problematic for me old eyes. I was not able to focus manually (Voigtlander 50mm f/1.1 mounted via Metabones M-X adapter) while magnifying because the subject appears to be madly hopping around.
Summary: No me convence nada el visor, es poco luminoso, con poca definición (el titulo de un libro lo veo borroso a traves del visor y nitido con mis ojos). El AF es como el bingo te toca o no, en escenas oscuras no acierta la mayoria de las veces. La construcción es buena y la imagen cuando enfoca tambien. Subexpones las imagenes y el balance de blancos es pasable. Del video mejor no hablar, aunque para mi no es lo fundamental. Al final la he devuelto.
