Re: X-E1 pre-order; yet another zoom or prime question

Hi Db,

I (like others here) have gone for the kit deal (body + 18-55mm zoom)

I have come from a background of selling ALL my Nikon DSLR's and primes and have changed direction in photo work.

The X-E1 looks a really exciting camera.  Although I am a "prime lens type" from Nikon days I went for the zoom for two reasons:

  • the packaged price, seems like great value to me
  • the desire to lessen my stock of carry everywhere lenses and have an all-round body and lens that don't weight a lot and are of a high quality

The 18-55 does seem a little oversized for the small X-E1 body 8^)

I'm so wanting to see samples from this zoom too.
