As my nickname suggests, I am a father of two, and have been really frustrated at not being able to take those photos of my kids running towards me with the delirious smile plastered all over their faces as only kids can when they're running. I've had to be content with taking running shots from the side as then I have more time to focus and manually track their lateral runs. But these shots are often disappointing as the smiles just aren't captured - any attempt at using AF-C (or C-AF) has been a disaster on my EM5!

But now comes the XT-1, and it's weather-sealed, and although lacking in stabilisation, Fuji has lenses which have OIS. But the biggest plus, a (seemingly) working AF-C function!

In going Fuji-X, it is a shame to lose the smaller/lighter m43 lens. Fuji XF lens are considerably heavier. It would be interesting to look up more image quality comparisons between m43 glass and XF glass at similar price points.

Thanks for this - I've never had the opportunity to hold a fujinon xf lens before, nor a x-series camera! Looks like I have a lot of legwork to do!

If the em1 speed is not enough, I think you are ready for dslr my friend. The Fuji while having absolutely better iq will very likely not satisfy you either ....
