Whoops I did mean high ISO, low light!!

I do not have enough experience of Fuji lens but will restate that there is an extensive lens line-up with Canon and that lenses like the 70-200mm f2.8L just do not exist for the X-E1 therefore there are more quality options with the Canon system (or with Nikon).

The EVF and lack of speed will for me mean the 5D Mk III will be the preferred camera for purely photography based excursions but given the weight issue and the fact that 70% of the time I just want a camera with me when travelling and photography is not sole reason I am out and about then the X-E1 will probably be preferred. Thankfully people do differ, just explaining my reasoning.
