First day out, at Mall with the Fuji X-E1 and kit zoom (18-55mm)
Went to the mall to capture some first impressions of the Fuji X-E1.
(I'm clearly the guy who points his camera at the walls, ceilings, people and colors.)
So my impressions:
This is so grown up from the X-Pro1. The Q menu saves the day - making easy work of changing any of the top buried settings you would want to fiddle with.
The fast zoom is simply amazing for a kit lens. With one dislike; I wish it had the traditional aperture ring instead of the not labeled dial and guess (or look) ring.
The X-E1 body forces you to look and constantly think about it's settings and how it's configured. Which is nice, because 90% of it can be seen looking down at the top plate and lens (except when the zoom is on.)
I wear glasses to read; so the diopter adjustment on the EVF brought everything into focus for me. This EVF is as-sharp to me as the NEX-7 with one negative, it does paint a little slowly if you are fast moving.
Looking forward to Sunday in the park with the X-E1.
