Seems you've done your homework.

I don't own either camera, but I know when I make a choice of new system camera next year I will try them out in person first, and examine sample images carefully.

Yes, I will do that. I already tried the A7 and X-E2. A7 won that round with a better EVF and tilting LCD (I really can't live without one). I'm presuming that the X-T1 will improve on the EVF and it will be equal to the Sony A7 or better. I also believe that the control layout of the X-T1 will please me more than the X-E2 did, but that I'll find out when I get to try it.

Personally, I think the X-T1 is a much nicer functional design than the A7, and has a bigger native lens selection. But it comes down to the images and the sorts of images you most enjoy making. So definitely look at lots of images and see which camera would satisfy you overall.

Wishing you luck in choosing. If you get an X-T1 be sure to post impressions!

Thanks, I definitely will, if I get an X-T1
