Is XT1 Already "old hat"?
6 months ago

Let's face it.  The XT1 is basically an improved XE2 in a new body.  However, the improvements seem to be slight, other than the EVF which is supposed to be amazing.  However, the camera is $1300 for the body alone.

Now Sony goes and announces the a6000.  Much better autofocus (127 PDAF vs. 9), resolution (24mp vs 16), size (smaller), etc.  it is also priced at HALF, $650!

Now, Sony lenses are generally awful, but there is now a range of Zeiss lenses which work extremely well with the system.  How is Fuji to compete.  I own the XE1 and was planning to upgrade to the XT1, however I am now questioning that move.

why shouldn't I switch?  Help!
