I would like to buy X-E1 but I don't understand these comments made by Ken Rockewell about colors rendition

If you do not know KR's personality and preference for colours then his advice is not for you. He loves what most of us would consider outrageaous colours. In his view the colours in SOOC jpgs are not crazy enough.

For the overwhelming majority of us the colurs of the X-E1 are just fine.


"BAD Things Section":

"Blah color rendition, much duller than Canon, Nikon or Iphone5"

"It's optimized and great for people photos, but too dull for photos of things"

"The X-E1 excels in crappy light, but its colors don't look very good in good light"

This is all true from KR's unique perspective. But that perspective is unlikely to be yours as well.

You can safely consider the X-E1 just fine as far as colours go. Base your purchasing decision on all the other factors.

Good luck with that.
