Brandon Remler (Click here to watch) posted a nice X-E1 and 18-55mm test: “Needless to say I am overjoyed with its performance. I hit the Quick menu button and flipped the X-E1 in Velvia mode and set off. As expected the images are sharp and vivid and this is from a pre-production body and lens (it is not without faults because of this so it will only improve).” And he also says: “The new OLED 2.36MM EVF viewfinder is easy to work with and has a great viewing angle for use in all lighting situations (glasses on or off). ”
The new faster AF and the improved EVF are definitely the biggest highlights of the new X-E1. I am really wondering if Fuji will keep developing the hybrid EVF/OVF solution. I may soon start a poll about this to see what youthink about the EVF versus hybrdi VF debate.
