Re: Why not buy an XP1??

Seems like you need the OVF. EVF, imo, is better suited for more static subjects which is why I don't want to buy one for street photography. I want the XP1 for it's OVF. Sound slike that's what you need.

Have you used an EVF that you liked before? The Nex 6 has a better EVF and the camera's less than the XE1. But I think I'd still get the XP1.

As I said, I did have an XP1 for a short time but was able to return it when I learned about the XE-1. I like the smaller size of the XE-1.

I have shot with the NEX-7 and don't recall it having the same issue but I have issues with the lens selection for the NEX cameras and I do not like their interface. I have shot with some micr 4/3 cameras but do not like the format. I find that I can get much better looking images using APS-C.

I may end up going back to the XPRO-1. I have to give the XE-1 more time to get used to first, then I will decide.
