XPro1 or XE1
Sep 28, 2012

I'm having a hard time with this choice.

I have a chance to buy an XPro-1 + 35mm f/1.4 for $1999. It's new.

I already have an XE-1 pre-ordered.

I can't afford both.

My favorite camera is the Leica M8. I can't afford an M-E. I've been watching Fuji for the last year and got a used x100 in the last few months and love it. Though I love shooting with the M8, you'd assume I use the OVF on the x100, but I end up using the EVF 90% of the time.

Size and weight difference between the XE-1 and XPro1 are probably negligible for my purposes - though I'm usually the gal that says "the smaller the better".

Biggest concern is that I do plan on using my M-lenses from time-to-time... and I wonder if the better EVF on the XE-1 would be better suited for that.

What do you think? What would YOU do?
