Re: Still like the form factor of X-E2 over X-T1

X-T1, nice viewfinder with faster refresh rate along with other goodies but I still like the form factor of X-E2 over X-T1. I may be odd man out here, I really want to like X-T1 but my heart is still with X-E2 form factor, the rangefinder, stealthy look. Guess the new viewfinder is too big to be fitted into a body like X-E2 or can it be?

I was holding off buying X-E2 till the X-T1 arrival. Hope the price of X-E2 goes down too. Are there people out there who's going to grab X-E2 over X-T1?

The EVF of the X-T1 does not have a faster refresh than the X-E2. It has a shorter lag time.

In low light, yes it does

Before you ask my source, to quote Rico's first look from the rumor site,

"The large electronic viewfinder (EVF) is housed in the “hump” and delivers an impressive magnification of 0.77x (E-M1: 0.74x, X-E2: 0.64x) and a refresh rate of 54 fps (E-M1: 60 fps, X-E2: 50 fps). The X-T1 offers this high refresh rate even in low light: At 1.6 EV, it still clocks 54 fps, while the E-M1 slows down to 30 fps and the X-E2 to 20 fps."

That's actually pretty significant. 54 vs 20 fps in low light. I def notice the lag in my xe2 in low light. but then again when the light is that low there's not a good chance a worthwhile photograph can even be taken with almost no light (unless using flash).

Sorry for the double post, I'm on mobile
