Re: X-E1 vs X-M1 for novice

I shoot with both and normally carry both with different lenses on. The images are identical.

I bought the XE first but as I got more than 3 lenses for it I needed another body and I took to the XM right away - its quite a bit smaller which I like if I'm carrying a few lenses and more than one body. The tilt screen is very useful if you want to be discrete or doing macro or waist level shots.

The manual controls on the XE are a bit better and faster and the viewfinder is great when you have the opportunity to shoot a lot of pics and can have the camera to your eye.

I like both cameras equally for different reasons and if I was new to the system my choice in buying in would totally depend on price and what lens came with it. A lot of people will be selling their X cameras now to get the XT so prices for your needs should be very good particularly for the M.

Get a good lens tho.
