The autumn is here, and luminous landscape took some nice pictures with the X-E1 and posted a clear review about this camera (now available also in Germany).

The X-E1 has many Pros. For example the tester defines the Fuji X-Trans sensor as superb. As he already noticed for the X-Pro1, also the X-E1 image quality is competitive to what came out of his Leica M9. If you doubt the X-system image quality is up to pro-standards, he suggest to check out Zack Arias’ review (you can see pictures of the X-Pro1 compared with Leica M9). The high ISO performance is also exceptional. Just take a look at Roels‘ pictures taken from ISO 200 up to ISO 25600. The X-E1 produces professional-grade jpegs and has a good auto-focus

What irritates the tester is the absence of user-controllable minimum ISO settings in the auto-ISO mode. Let’s hope for a firmware upgrade that will fix this. The second thing that irritates the tester is a problem that’s harder to fix: the placement of the AF button: “One of the pleasures of working with an EVF is the ability to focus pretty much anywhere in the field of view.  The catch is that to change the focus-point, one has to press the AF button. With the camera to one’s face, this is hard to do” (same problem of the X-Pro1).

All in all a really serious mirrorless system camera from Fuji. “Fuji is, undoubtedly, one of the most creative players in this field, and their offerings are getting ever richer.”
