Re: Fuji got it right this time, almost ...

After using X-E1 for awhile, I find this design a lot more appealing.

  • reduced size and weight - plus.
  • wider kit lens - plus.
  • tilting LCD - huge plus. I hate fixed LCD on X-E1, it's quite useless.
  • no AF/MF switch on front, what the heck Fuji was thinking putting this thing there on X-E1?
  • PASM dial - plus in my book. Don't like the aperture dial, especially unlabeled one, don't like the wacky shutter speed dial. The PASM dial was the result of the evolutionary improvements, what was Fuji thinking bringing the shutter dial from yesteryear on X-E1?

They got it almost right, but one crucial element is still missing. And no, it's not an EVF, I couldn't care less about it. Never liked looking into a keyhole experience. What's missing is a good grip. One most unpleasant thing about using X-E1 is the lack of grip.

X-E2 may well add tilting lcd, slightly larger grip.

X-M1 doesnt hav PDAF, X-E2 will.
