Thinking of switching: what is BAD about the XE1?
3 months ago

I'm thinking of consolidating to Fuji.

I have today the 6D, NEX6 and Canon M1. With the X-T1, that looks like a body I'd love, but down the road. I can't afford it just yet, as I need both a larger body for flash, and a compact body.

So I'm thinking of the XE1 + XM1 (or maybe an XA1) to start. I'd get the 2.8-4 kit lens, the 35/1.4 and the 55-200 zoom, and would like to use some legacy lenses (I have an FD 50mm macro and a Rokkor 45/2 which I like a lot. I might also possibly get the 23 pancake.

Besides the development issues of XTran RAW on lightroom, what are the negatives of the XE1?

Does it do focus peaking? In the viewfinder? to use with my legacy lenses?

Does the XE1 simulate exposure in the viewfinder? Does the XM1 or XA1 simulate it on the LCD?

I understand the AF has improved. But could I use the 50-200 for some kids events? Horse riding in a ring? School spirit days?

Are there any flash issues with the Fuji system?

Any other issues/thoughts??

Thanks for any help.
