I have a X-E1 for about a week right now that I'm evaluating. I have both the 18-55 and 55-200 lenses. It seems OK. But the viewfinder is beyond bad. I mean, you can't read the text on the screen or anything. Looking through it is like trying to look at Mt Rushmore with reading glasses. I mean, it's awful. Perhaps it's just defective? Or maybe there's some setting I'm missing?

Of course, you have adjusted the diopter wheel (left side of viewfinder) to your eyesight? If so and you can't read the text on the display clearly, then the camera may indeed be faulty. With the diopter correctly adjusted everything should be clear in the viewfinder.

Problem solved.   You are 100% right.  Thank-you everyone for being so kind to me in helping find the problem.
