I recently bought an X-E1 just before leaving for home . I did not have time to try it out but examining it on the flight home I have to say I had some regrets.

A good camera that would be a great camera with a bit of firmware tweaking, but falls short with some very useful features strangely missing. It's a handy size, produces good results, the panorama stitching works magically, and the physical controls for exposure are a pleasure to use. But the Auto ISO function is badly constrained by not allowing a minimum shutter speed setting appropriate to your focal length to avoid blur... these days it should be possible to set a dynamic speed that is ...
