Can you please post a sample of both of them at f/2?

Here's a comparison that can be conducted as a thought experiment:

Both at f/2.8, IOS turned on with the zoom, shutter speed for both at 1/15 sec, hand held.

Hands down, zoom wins!

From an absolutist perspective it is likely (not certain) that the prime will have some discernible (when PixelPeeped) advantages to the zoom. The tests that are starting to show up on the web indicate that the zoom is very good. With regards to flexibility, minimized kit, slow shutter speeds with IOS, it seems like the zoom has a lot going for it.


I completely agree Framus.


Hi Framus and James,

I agree also with Framus and I add that even for PixelPeeped : at 5.6 the Zoom X-E1 combo is better than the X100 with prime ! This is at iso 3200 AND at iso 200. See the Ducati brakes and frame and every thing on the pictures (my Gallery). This is a big Wow for the combo!

I will compare at 2.8 , on tripod to help the x100.... The combo may beat the x100.... I will see.
