Thank you for the impression. Does the XE1 do fill flash as well as X100 in terms of naturalness?

I was never crazy about the X100's flash because of its proximity to the lens, so I almost never used it (after some initial bad shots); I recently bought the X100's hotshoe flash (the 28? I think - still haven't picked it up yet from the store after ordering it). The XF1's flash is a bit more situated away from the lens, so I imagine it would perform a bit better. All I did so far with the flash was test its ability to fill the room with light when needed - I was shooting with it at ISO 100, 200, 400 and shooting subjects as far away as about 5m. This weekend I'll do some more experiments with its ability to fill flash.
