I recently purchased the X-E1 and have used it on a few shoots. It came with the 18-55 zoom lens and I have upgraded both the camera and lens to the latest firmware. There are a couple of issues I have noticed and just wanted to get others opinions.
1. On the LCD or EVF views, is there any way to have either of the displays show the image as it effected by shutter speed and aperture? You get the small exposure gauge on the left, which so far seems very accurate, however I would much rather have the LCD and EVF display the view as it will be exposed. I am coming over from the Sony Nex-7 and that is the standard way the Sony works as most other live view displays. Once the image is taken with the Fuji, you get a few second view that shows the correct exposure, but I would prefer to have this view before I take the shot.
2. On focus, the latest firmware has the focus peaking. However when you are viewing an image and increase the magnification to 100%, trees seem to take on a blurred look like you have used way way to much noise reduction. Basically you can't tell anything about focus. With the peaking you can get a OK idea, but I am surprised that the view is so soft. When I look at the files in either LR or Capture one, they are in focus, but I can't figure out why the view on the camera is so soft. Is that normal or do I have a setting wrong.
So far I have used both LR 4.4 and Capture One on the raws and both seem to do a OK job. Capture one seems to have a problem with pine needles and with LR 4.4 I seem to get a strange haloing on some tree limbs, like a combination of CA and over sharpening haloing. I have CA applied and have backed way down on the sharpening in LR. With Capture One, by using a local adjustment layer on just the areas of the fine with pine needles, I can still get a very good detailed image. The clarity of the files at 800 is very clean, much cleaner than shots taken with my Sony Nex-8 at 800.
