Re: Fuji X-E1, Olympus E-PL5, or Sony NEX6?

It is a good development with firmware. Good from Fuji. But is it impressive?? No, because FW 1,1 AF, as you can see is very very slow...You might as well use manual focus.

If I wasn't clear. It is okey for shooting stills and people in streets etc. To me, it does seem too slow for kids moving around. It is simply not fast enough. Most lenses on Oly or Panny bodies focus instantly. So you can shoot moving subjects much better.

Another point is that I saw that in darker surroundings, the focus begins to hunt an does not find a focus at all...Not so with modern MFT camera's, they will focus and at least my GH2 and EPL5 do it about as fast as the EX-1 in good light.


So: what do you shoot? If it is street photgraphy, architecture, landscapes etc the Fuji is excellent. Once things move or it gets dark, the OM-D does better.
