Some problems with the XT1

Some members might remember I purchased a used XE1 from a friend who was moving up to the XT1. I e mailed him to see how he was getting on with the new camera and waited for the Wows!!

His reply was to tell me he had returned two cameras because of sensor problems (he called it pixel flare) not totally sure exactly what he means but I will give him a call to find out. He landed up buying an xpro1 and is very happy with it. I also have an xpro so can confirm that the images between the xe1 and xpro are the same so just seems a shame that he sold me his xe1 at a knock down price as back up and has had to fork out for another camera with the same chipĀ  although it does have the OVF which I`m sure he`ll like.

BTW this guy is not new to digital photography as we both cut our teeth on the early Nikon 900 series. that reminds me of my first digital camera and that was a fuji(can`t remember the model ) but it didn`t have an lcd so you still had to wait to get home and view the imagesĀ 

Wonder if anyone else has had a similar problem with the xt1 (could that have been a severe case of light leak maybe?)
