Trying to like the X pro1 but I can't

I really had high expectation for this camera. Great IQ in a small package, but..................

Does anyone else have problems with;

1. The build quality of the camera and the lens - it is just OK but nothing special. Very light and not substantial. I have real problems with the lens build. It seems like they cut corners on the build quality. The picture quality is great.

2. The lens makes stupid sounds.

3. Manual focus is a joke.

4. The camera is sluggish and the AF is barely acceptable.

I guess the thing that bothers me most is the price point for this camera. If it was on par with the Sony Nex 7 and Oly OM D I think I would be fine with it.

It seems like the majority of people on the forum are trying to justify their purchase. It is a sure sign that Fuji needs to evaluate their pricing structure.

Mine is going back.

Just my opinion.

Sony Alpha NEX-7
