fair enough...

I think your comments are quite helpful and fair.  I don't have Sony but keep my Nikon D700 and a set of quality lenses.  I got the X-E1 solely for landscape, knowing its AF won't match up with the D700.  When I went to Masa Mara Safari, I carried the D700 with the new 80-400 VR for animals, and the X-E1 with 18-55 for landscape. Both camera perform well for their purpose.

Counting on X-E1 for kids and activities will be disappointing, and I also realized the X-E1 is not really a light camera. But IQ matches the D700, which meets my needs. The key is knowing its strength and weakness, and put it to what it's good for.
