Other than these little annoying things, including the AF in low light, i LOVE the color output out of the XE1.

Sorry to say this, but based on the exif data you are not using the camera correctly.

In your first photo, for instance, the camera cannot properly expose the scene with an Aperture of f/18 and an ISO of 200. It is simply not possible

I strongly suggest that when purchasing an expensive camera you invest in knowledge/courses/tutorials to help you get the most out of the camera. You will be happier with your photos and happier with your purchase if you do this.

There is a book called 'Mastering the Fuji XE-1' you could read. Also, you might try some popular books like 'understanding Exposure' by Bryan Peterson.

The Fuji series do lack many of the auto modes found on other camera brands. This is a deliberate decision by Fuji to appeal to the enthusiast segment of photographers.

Good luck!
