Re: X-E3 in hands and observations

I finally got mine too (after cancelling my Adorama preorder and ordering from Cameta on Amazon).

I also got silver body and 23/2 - I assumed the lens would be silver but mine is black as well. I don't think I really care, although it might have been nice to easily tell the 23 and 35 apart at a glance.

My first impression was it seemed smaller than I expected based on the numeric dimensions, but I definitely like it.

I've only taken a few shots but I am really digging it so far. It's *way* faster than my X-E1 in all aspects. I also like that it got all the new MF assists (I like red highlights usually).

I keep reaching for the dpad but that will change. I kind of wish there was at least one more function button (maybe on the front like X100F) but we'll see - maybe the gestures will be ok.

I mostly use the EVF but touch-to-focus is cooler than I expected.
