Great color but doesn't last long

I really loved this camera. The color and white balance of this camera are amazing.

However, the new design on lens makes it not very robust. After nine months of use, the aperture failed and it started to give me overexposed pictures. Since it was still under warranty, I send it to Fuji to repair. They replaced the entire lens and seems to fix the problem at that time. But ten months later the aperture failed again and there is no warranty this time.

Therefore, I will recommend people who want to buy this camera to consider XQ1 instead. XQ1 looks very similar to XF1 but with a traditional lens, which means it won't have the same issue as XF1. It also has a better sensor so the image quality should be better then XF1.
