X-P1/18mm 0r 35mm $1699 - X-E1/18-55 $1399??? Yes it's only a $300 spread, but my take is that I can get in on the X-Trans IQ now with the X-E1, and get the zoom almost 50% discounted! I'll buy the 14mm f/2.8 and the 55-200 OIS later next year when their prices drop. Then in the fall of 2013 I will take a serious look at the benefits of stepping up to the X-PRO 2 or maybe just settle in with a great little performer that I will have gotten very used to by then. Might even wait for a X-PRO4K or X-E8K , as we all know that "Ultra High-Quality" and Super Ultra-High Quality" are here now in Video and are soon to influence the Photo equipment standards! but in the meantime I'll be making some very sharp files with my light and comfortable little Fuji. As I have repeated all over this forum: We are all lusting for that "Red Dot" IQ but we aren't interested in forking out all of that "M"oney! Just happy to get in as close as we can, with the X-Tran!
