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?

Ed... Me too... Never see it with my x-pro1... And when it turns up on the forum, the leaves/greens are generally out of focus...


That's basically what I see.

I suppose there may still be problems with raw converters but the in-camera processing of JPEGs seems to get everything right.

I use to shoot 70/80% in raw, with other cameras, but don't use it much with the X-E1.

I suppose that puts me in the rank amateur or "stupid" category but I see very little reason to use raw with the Fuji.

If I were selling my pictures I might be more cautious, and use raw, but let's face it; my best efforts are only snapshots and no one in their right mind would pay for them.
