Why buy the X-PRO1 instead of the X-E1?
Sep 6, 2012

Here's the side by side specs

After the firmware update, will the X-PRO1 perform better than the X-E1? It seems to me they'll be at least almost identical.

The X-PRO1 has an OVF, nicer LCD, and is a little beefier than the X-E1 (a + for some users). Surely there has to be more of a difference, right?

I think I'd prefer the X-PRO1, but for $700 more? I doubt it. The good thing is they'll probably drop in price (used).

Are there any other reason why one would buy the X-PRO1 instead of the X-E1?
