Re: Is the X-A1 the right camera for me?

In my 40 year experience, a small sensor with an excellent lens (Pani LX5, Oly XZ2, Sony RX100II...) will produce sharper pictures than an APS-C camera (Nex 3, or 7) with an average kit lens. These compact cameras work pretty well up to 800 iso, and never need to go higher because of their very bright lens. So that is what I would recommend.

As for the Fuji XA1, everything I have seen from this camera up to now looks truly excellent. Moreover, Fuji lenses are very good, even the kit zooms. So it would be a good choice, but a bit of an overkill if you never plan to print large formats.
