Re: XPro1 or XE1

It's reported hereabouts that the X-E1 has the same EVF as the one in Sony's NEX7. I had a NEX7 and I thought its EVF was awful. It may be high resolution but it's just not a photographic tool. Using it is like looking down a variably illuminated telescope with random coloured visual aberrations and it's the main reason I got rid of the NEX7. Compare the VF2/VF3 that Olympus uses as a plug-in EVF and which Leica is using in the X2. That is the nearest thing to an optical VF one can get. The X-Pro1 EVF is close to the Oly one but could probably do with a faster refresh rate.

Anyway much as I might like an X-E1 to pair with the X-Pro1, I'm not going to as the EVF would drive me mad.
