Re: Fuji XE1 to replace Leica M8

Hi Nuno,

I haven't sold an M8, but one of my close friends and students just sold his M9 and two of this Leica lenses and purchased an X-E1 as his primary camera.  In his case, he had no desire to use his Leica glass on the X-E1.  He decided after all these years that he was tired of manual focus and his aging eyes were not helping.  He's very happy with the Fuji 18-55, the 35 f/1.4 and the whole package overall.  Of course, it is still relatively new to him, but he seems to feel good about his decision.

First post on Fuji forum!
I'm completely in love by the Fuji XE1 and have been thinking on selling my M8 to buy this little camera. I would be using the camera mostly with M Lenses.What is your opinion? anyone moved from an M8 to Fuji XE1? how easy is to manual focus with the camera? any good adapter (apart from the Fuji M Adapter)?
Thank you in advanceRegards, Nuno
