On article Fujifilm X-E1 preview extended (113 comments in total)

will be interested to see how dpreview will address in full review the flash behavior of XE1 built in mini flash:
Correction is limited to +/- 2/3 EV.
Using it as fill in flash in normal/ambient shadow conditions it works decent to have results hardly detectable as being flashed. But in low light conditions with higher Iso I get results looking always almost over exposured, showing too much flash light and destroyed atmosphere. Low speeds settings, correct manual aperture settings and rear curtain sync does not help. Flash looks always too strong. Would need flash power correction to -2 EV to achieve desired results looking non flashed. This way I used to operate with Nikon gear as D7000.
Hopefully Fujifilm will/can improve this by software update.
The High Iso potential of this camera demands are very controllable fill in flash capability under low light. This is what I am missing.
Also external Fujifilm Flash XE 20 offers only +/- 1 EV correction.
