Re: Fujifilm better than sony?

Body only XE1 is cheaper than Nex 7. Its same as Nex 6. Body + Lens kit is cheaper with Sony but Fuji 18-55 or Fuji 35mm lens kit are in another league to Sony 16-50. I don't mind Sony 16-50 but its no way a match for the Fuji Lens. Fuji has a lens roadmap for releases of about another 5 or 6 lenses coming out in 2013.

I have 3 Fuji lenses the 18-55 F2.8 oss zoom, the 35mm F1.4, the 14mm F2.8.

They are the best lenses in their class for each. Really superb.

I have XE1 and also Nex 6 I like them both. Fuji would be better overall jpeg straight out of the camera. Perhaps it is slightly better in high ISO low noise. Its way better for menus and physical controls except I prefer the physical mode dial on the Nex - I use that a lot and XE1 is bit less obvious how to change modes.

Both are great cameras. I would not want to miss out on my Fuji. I also like my Nex. Its a good problem to have!
