The point of using the X-E1 is to use a small, light, beautiful camera

A beautiful camera is important.

You don't TAKE a photo, you MAKE a photo.

Unless you are using sarcasm, I agree. Most of today's cameras are simply too bulky, too full of unnecessary buttons, and have no labels to be beautiful. Fuji's new cameras are designed to be used, not designed to be researched. All the controls are well-labelled and easy to suss, while the controls for my Nikon D800 have no labels except for ISO, WB, QUAL (whatever that is) and a few other hardly-touched buttons.

Fuji's design is beautiful and as a modern camera, the most functional yet. Beautiful design is incredibly important. If it gets in the way of shooting because of faulty or ugly design, it serves a disservice.
