Re: Anyone switch from FF to X-E1?

I had a FF Canon system with a nice (cherished actually) but small collection of "L" primes...and it was all so bloody heavy I found myself not taking many pictures any more.

When a friend told me about the X-E1 I looked into it and liked everything I heard and read. Took the leap (this after already selling off the Canon stuff) have been delighted. Picture taking is fun again, like it was back in the 1970s with my Nikon FM only better. My wife has convinced me to give zooms a try so I'm waiting on delivery of the 55-200 and will order the 10-24 as soon as it is announced. Meanwhile I'm taking very nice pictures with the 35/1.4.

I am more than happy with the IQ and since I came from the old days of manual focusing, the AF doesn't bother me all that much. It seems like a luxury. (smile)
