About me:

HAVE PurchaseD an IST*Ds and see if my Canon G2 can reach 200,000
shots..(EDIT)...I
don't think so but **EDIT: my Canon G2 did not reach 200K ..it was kind of halted at
about 86K when I got my IST*Ds (in Dec 2004) which went on to about 88K when it
got replaced by my 2nd K200D in Mar 09 :D. Got a Pentax K-r in Dec 2010 and a Pentax Q (w/ Prime and FishEye) in Sept 2011 :) and added the O2 (Wide Angle Zoom) and O6 (Tele Zoom) to the Q, as well as, adding a Ricoh GR IV this past May 31, 2013 and, after thrashing my Q and 06 lens, I know have a Q7 and another 06 lens :D

"The X-E2 isn't a great all-rounder... Not so good for sports or action photography."

No wonder MILCs can't gain any traction against DSLRs. Even the latest greatest are handicapped.

Hi J_J_B and Dimit,
A friend of mine has had his XE-2 for two(2) months now and loves it :) After looking at the "CONS", I believe that there are a few that are subjective and a few that will be objective :) As for the build quality, he likes it and, this is coming from a D600/D300/D7100's (and all with VG/BP's) and V1 :) As for sports/action … that's why you should have a different camera (D7100) for that ….or, if you want to use the XE-2, start photographing slower sports ….. curling, perhaps ;)

Trust me, Sam, they weren't near the quality of images submitted and far, far less than the winning images .. I post one of them later, from me laptop :) Plus, Daily Life, in Vancouver/BC is far less dramatic than the rest of the world ;)
