    Good review, I can't argue with anything he's said really. I did feel the XP1 was a firmware update or two away from being perfect and I'm sure with the improvements we've seen on the X100 that they will come.

    But for me the OM-D fitted my needs better for now... that said I will keep a close eye on the XP1 and its development and the IQ is incredible.

    Nice review. I'm still watching the XP1 too, I really would like to have it since discovering that if I use my right eye to focus, I dont need any diopter adjustment :)

    I could be tempted to pickup an XP1 again, the OMD I've replaced mine with is good but I'm not getting the same "vibe" when I look at my images

    I own and use a NEX 7 and I know exactly what you mean.

    I could be tempted to pickup another XP1 with the 35mm and use it alongside my OMD, although in the long run would need to get rid of one of them!

    Well then, the Fuji is clearly essential :rolleyes: :smile:
    ... And it will help justify the new monitor.

    I thought I was going in that direction when I started using my XP1 (admittedly the XP1 is getting more attention from me these days) however there are still situations where I need some of the NEX's unique functions which has led me to keep both cameras. I think in the end I just really like both cameras :biggrin:
