I went with the X-trans because it was different and all the reviews are very positive. It wasnt until after it shipped that i learned people are unhappy with the green smearing and such.

Still in my opinion, the X-trans sensor is a big draw -- its something that makes this camera different. Otherwise why not get an NEX, they are certainly a lot cheaper

I'm going to sound very stupid here but I've never had a problem with the X-Trans sensor and the green smearing that so many people talk about.

Maybe it's because I don't do many landscape type shots and to be honest I usually shoot JPEG instead of raw with this particular camera.

Here's a snapshot I took yesterday that has quite a bit of green in it. Nothing special about the picture but the color of the grass and hedges look OK to me.

Maybe I'm missing something.

Edit: by the way, the shutter speed was 125. Where did the EXIF data come up with 1250?

There is a thread going about green smearing and dpreview itself acknowledged it in the review of XM1 (on the conclusion page).  The problem occurs largely in tree leaves in mid to back ground and not in something that is up close.
