"BAD Things Section":

"Blah color rendition, much duller than Canon, Nikon or Iphone5"

"It's optimized and great for people photos, but too dull for photos of things"

"The X-E1 excels in crappy light, but its colors don't look very good in good light"

Always take what KR says with a large grain of salt! He says for instance that RAW is nonsense because he gets it right when he takes his shot. Now this is probably a tad simplistic, but KR likes to wind people up, he says so himself, not to take him too seriously.

Of course there is a strong possibility that he is just misunderstood ... here is a shot taken with the X-E1 ... at the time I still had my D300s and took some comparison shots. Won't bore you with the results ... In my personal opinion, possibly as erratic as his opinion, the X-E1 has one of the most outstanding colours in the industry. Here is a shot of a vintage car, maybe dull to your eyes - and certainly dull to Mr Rockwells eyes, he would have done so much better using a smart phone I know, I know ...

Best to make up your mind yourself! Google X-E1 pics or flick through the galeries here on dpreview ...

Dull alright ...

Cheers
