On article Fujifilm X-E1 preview extended (113 comments in total)

The Fuji X-pro 1 was beyond my budget so I'm happy with this X-E1. I have the black one with the zoom lens and use it together with my GF1+20mm pancake. Most of the online reviews were read before I bought the Fuji and it strikes me that nobody mentioned the sharp edge of the plastic control wheel that you use to change settings.The sharp edge is noticed when you press this little grey wheel to activate the zoom function like you do in manual focus.

I found a very nice tip by another user to use manual focus with 3x zoom and focus lock on Fuji lenses. You first press 3x zoom and aim at the spot you want to put focus on, then push AE-L/AF-L and the lens will focus tack-sharp in manual focus mode. You can also adjust with minimal rotation of the lens barrel to another spot. Press shutter for one or multiple shots. The focus distance will not change. Wish that Fuji comes with a Firmware update where the Fn button can be used for the 3x zoom. That would make me forget the sharp edge.

I have seen amazing "Fuji X pro1" samples on Scoop.it, don't think there is anything wrong with this sensor after seeing beautiful red tulips, (pre) wedding shots, long exposure times, street photography and many other great "real life"examples...
