Re: choosing between X-T1 and Sony A7

I think you have it mostly right. I have the A7, I don't have a Fuji though I'm very intrigued by the X-T1. I would add the FE 55mm is fantastic. If you shoot at this focal length a lot it would be a strong item in favor of the A7.

The other thing I would add is that with all the cameras I've had, in using them the things that are never mentioned in reviews or on-line are the things that made me keep or sell a camera. Usability is not the same for everyone. I see lots of comments about the controls on the A7 being not well laid out. Personally I think them pretty good. I despised the control on the E-M5. The E-M1 was much better but this had it's issues despite the accolades it seems to get.

Think about the type of shooting you do. That will probably help narrow down what you want most. I look forward to tests of the X-T1 and especially to trying one in hand to see how it feels. It looks like a great camera.
