After 7500 shots with the XT1
2 months ago

below is my scoring.

Just want to add some particular remarks

1/- The JPEG engine is not as good as it was on XP1 especially in terms of DR where dark shadows appear black even at DR400 and S-2

2/- NR should be less energic to say the least

3/- CH an CL work remarkably well and are most useful for kids and of course wildlife

4/- the tilt screen is excellent for styreet photography

5/- the 10-24 XF UWA is amazing for archotecture street shots

6/- The EVF is marvellous and does improve MF and FP

7/- The autonomy is still very poor

8/- Buttons are too small and should have a specific pattern to be easily distinguished by the fingers

9/- The battery grip is a must have to be comfortable with such a small camera and big lenses and it is excellent!

10/- the wifi mastering of the camera is excellent and discrete with aphone (the pad is intrusive)

11/- the camera has lost the vintage look and now people tell me you have a nice camera sir where before nobody paid attention to me sincve I was supposed to use film...

12/- the TTL metering for flash is ex cellent and EF42 give excellent result especially with a small softbox added
