    your shots are only making the waiting in this part of the world more difficult. Lovely shots.

    Since the sensor and lens (that I have) are nothing new, I guess my image post aren't' anything groundbreaking. If you have any questions about the camera body let me know, I would be happy to answer them. I can't speak for the new zoom though, it is not on the streets here yet that I know of. I got the body with the XF35mm.

    V. Nice! I like the idea of this camera with the new zoom lens on it, although the existing primes are obviously great lenses too. How did you find the operation of the camera? Fast and fluid? Slow and steady? Neither of the above?

    On a side note, how refreshing is it that the Lightrom support actually beat the camera to market.

    Camera operation: I didn't read the instructions at all. Every physical control aspect of the camera is in the right spots, s/w configurations are easy to figure out. From turned off to on the camera is ready when you are - meaning I can hit the power switch as I'm bringing up the camera to my eye and by the time I am ready to compose the camera is ready too. I've made a few custom configs with various jpg and film settings but I've only shot RAW so far.

    I've read focus is slow. I've read the EVF fps is slow. I didn't notice either, in fact while shooting I didn't notice the camera...which is kind of the point isn't it? Oh and the camera is very light. Today's shots were auto everything (ISO auto and capped at 6400), the only changes I made were +/- EV now and then when I felt the meter wasn't giving me what I wanted.

    Oh, in silent mode the beeping stops, the AF assist light stops and the flash will not fire. Easy to toggle by holding down the DISP BACK button for a second.

    LR 4.2 will ingest X-E1 RAW files. Camera RAW 7.2 (for PS CS6) will as well, also you can D/L DNG Converter 7.2 (free) from Adobe if you need to work outside those two versions of Adobe's software. Fuji's included software is non intuitive and clunky (to me).

    You know I lugged my D700 out to the lake today. When I got home I needed probably an hour of time in front of the computer to make them look like/almost as good Fuji files. I've used a number of APSC cameras (various Nikons and Pentaxes) over the last few years. To me the Fuji has the best IQ in this sensor size and to me actually is better than the D700. It's probably not going to be as good as the D600 but it's going to be very close.

    Check out this guys photos at Burning Man with the X Pro (same camera for all practical purposes as the X-E honestly, you just have a different viewfinder):

    Eric Bouvet

    He's a very interesting guy and there are some great galleries on his site (the Russian-Chechen war ones are riveting). Here's a article translated on his switch to the X series:

    Oh be sure and get the 35mm. It's worth it. It's probably the best lens I own and it cost a lot less than some of the more expensive ones that are supposed to be better. :smile:

    Cheers Stanley, that Eric Bouvet set from the Burning Man festival is excellent....camera performance stuff aside, I like his style.

    Apparently DPReview linked to this post, resulting in a good deal of people looking at the pictures I have posted so far. Some peeped pixels and decided the X-E1 + LR 4.2 results in horrible files and mud was thrown at Fuji and Adobe.

    So here are some ISO200, F2.8 shots. RAW. Imported into LR4.2, no edits, exported and uploaded - just for review if any of you all have questions about the X-E1 and LR 4.2. I'm not going to post anything to DPR since I do not have an account and do not intend on wasting a second of my time getting one. I chose foliage since that is where the problem is most prevalent, according to the subject matter experts at DPR.

    I don't see any problem with the sensor and LR 4.2's RAW rendering. Oh....this might be a good time to mention I use LR 4.2, CS5 and Topaz Detail, Adjust and Clean. I guess no one at DPR thought about that.

    Same for me. I'm having no issues with LR 4.2. DPR is just a horrible forum. It just seems to attract way too many "My camera is better than your camera" types.

    So you're a motorcycle guy too... good to know. I suspected when I saw the tank & gauge shot prior, but now that I see one with the keys in and lights on, that's probably yours.
