Well, if I have the camera hanging from my neck, see something that I want to shoot quickly, and then lift the camera to my eye, if it's a bright scene I can barely see anything through the viewfinder until it adjusts to that brighter scene. By the time this happens, the picture may be lost.

Honestly you guys are making light of this but it can be a problem.

I can easily see how what you describe can be a big problem. This would be totally unacceptable to me since I am often trying to shoot fast in a changing lighting environment. Well done bringing up this important point.

My wife has a camera (Panasonic GH2) with an EVF and I took that one out of the closet to compare. There is no comparison whatsoever. When I lift hers to my eye, the EVF adjusts almost instantly.

Panny can do it, but the fan boys here will give Fuji a free pass on this.

Again, I wonder whether there might be something wrong with my XE-1. Not trying to flame or anything here, I really am not, but I just don't see how it can be useable like this.

Can anyone with the XE-1 confirm that its EVF adjusts from dark to bright scenes slowly like this?

Well I would honestly like to establish whether this is normal or if I have a defective camera. If it's normal, I think I need the OVF in the XPRO-1.
