Thanks for a great article. I have two X-E1 bodies, the two 'ordinary' zooms and the 23mm and 56mm primes. I also have a Leica 35mm Summicron with Fuji adaptor. Like you, I find the 56mm awesome even on the X-E1. I also have a Canon 5dIII and L glass. I love my Canon, BUT, as has been said so many times, it is comparatively heavy and large. As most of what I do is for a local magazine or travel I rarely print above A4, c 11.5" x 8.25". The Fuji is now my most used camera, and I relish the size, weight, and IQ. To me the combination of sensor and lenses really pleases me. Yesterday I took images with the 56mm of the heads of horses that were going out on a traditional Boxing Day ride with the hounds (no killing involved!) The horse owners were delighted. I am also delighted with the firmware update policy of Fuji.
Why have I not jumped for the X-T1? I have handled it several times at exhibitions and my local dealer and am very attracted. I am also aware of the rumors about an X-Pro2. I would hate to buy an X-T1 and find 2 months later that I wished I had waited. I will upgrade in 2015 - that is definite. I love my Canon for wildlife, and have yet to see a good review of the X-T1 for e.g. birds in flight, or fish like dolphins so will keep it for a while, but it is on probation!
Your review is making me sit on my hands with a smile of anticipation.
