Excerpt: I started my photography journey on film forever ago it seems. Then I moved up to digital with all Canon cameras - the Rebel XT, 40D, 5D, and 6D. I was increasingly frustrated with the size of my gear.
Pros: Compact, Easy To Use, External Manual Controls, Good Image Quality, High ISO Performance, Large Clear LCD, Tilt /Swivel LCD
Excerpt: I bought this camera instead of full frame system. I was thinking the image quality and new 2.8 zooms with weather seal would work well. The 16-55 and 50-140 are a lot cheaper and a little smaller than Nikon 24-70 and 70-200 (equivalent lenses).
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, High ISO Performance, Large Clear LCD, Quiet, Tilt /Swivel LCD
Excerpt: I've owned an X-T1 for over a year and have enjoyed using it and getting great images from it. I originally bought it just for taking on trips rather than bringing all my full-frame Nikon body and lenses. However, I fell in love with the smaller size and great images.
Pros: Easy To Use, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, High ISO Performance, Large Clear LCD, Tilt /Swivel LCD
Excerpt: lack of focus, focus, focus speed. Gave this camera 2 chances to shoot during the day with extreme sun and it searched for focusing when using the spot focus. I can manually focus faster and I love what colors I get from the images but when I need to get the shot fast, this is not the camera for it.
Excerpt: Fuji has managed to produce a camera to rival full- frame DSLR's.........the unique sensor, coupled with Fuji glass, can produce seriously good IQ and deliver the richest of colors in the bargain.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, Large Clear LCD, Quiet
Summary: Fast autofocus, manual and automatic controls, multiple shooting modes, and most importantly - great pictures. This is the best camera I've ever owned! It is also the first camera for me that shoots RAW - I'm loving this and am now enjoying photography again as much as I did in the film-camera days,...
Summary: Owned and used this camera for almost 1/2 a year. Used Canon, Fujifilm and Panasonic high end for the past 8 years. I am committed to Fujifilm now. Started with X100, and now I exclusively use the X-T1. Fast, accurate, best inter-changeable lenses you can imagine.
It is a great camera for professionals as you will find online examples ...

Summary: It'd been some time before I used a full manual camera having had a point and shoot Leica before (I know, how useless). I did quite a bit of research before settling on the XT-1 but there were a few features that I felt were important to have.
