So I bought a X-E1...
6 months ago

and I'm totally in love with this camera. I used to own a X100, still regret selling it, and when the X100s came out I got one. At first I really liked it until I noticed this painterly effect on some shots. It annoyed me a lot. I guess Lightroom couldn't get the most out of the X100s files. Anyway, the camera broke after two weeks and I returned it and never looked back.

So, here I am again with a camera with an Xtrans sensor not knowing what to expect, it turns out I didn't have to worry about a thing! LR 5.4 handles the raw files really well and I also have Iridient Developer that works even better than LR 5.4 with the X-E1 but the workflow is not as smooth as LR.

I only shoot with legacy lenses, mostly Contax RTS. They work beautifully on the camera. I like the VF even though my A7 vf is bigger and more responsive.

Here are some samples with various lenses.
