After the photographyblog review (check it here), now also ephotozine postet its X-T1 review here… and it’s again, 5 out of 5 stars, editors choice and they conclude saying that “it could be very hard to resist purchasing this camera.”
“Speed – We took a number of shots to test the camera’s responsiveness, from switch on to first photo, shot to shot, focusing speed etc. We take a number of shots and then use the average to ensure accurate and consistent tests, making it easy to compare with other cameras. With support for UHS-II memory cards the write speeds after and during continuous shooting seemed very quick indeed, and the card we were using with the camera is a Toshiba Exceria Pro (UHS-II) with read speeds up to 260MB/s and write speeds up to 240MB/s – much faster than the 95MB/s offered on other performance SD memory cards. Scrolling through photos is extremely quick, and focus is quick with the lens updated to the latest firmware.”
The next review will probably come from imaging-resource… they already shared some samples here.
And you, can you resist to the X-T1? Is it tempting you? If it can help to decide, Oscar Wilde said that “the only way to get rid of temptation is to yield to it.” Just kidding, I’m so happy with my X-E2 that I won’t make the switch to the X-T1… sure, once it is in the store of my hometown, I’ll go there and give it a closer look, but I won’t switch… I think ;-).
And here just some more tidbits, the shutter sound (youtube). For the first wedding with the X-T1 click here for the Italian version (translation).
