This months Digital Camera Magazine has reviewed the Fuji XE1 (with 18-55mm lens). Now having extensively used the Fuji XE1 myself the other week I know its good, actually in truth better than good, it’s class leading,, but what about other testers?
Amongst some of the quotes from the magazine:
“Overall the XE-1 is an extremely interesting proposition that we can see being top of many photographers wishlists”
“The improved autofocus speeds that Fujifilms new firmware brings, coupled with the new lens, makes this a fantastic and reasonably priced little camera that will easily take on its SLR rivals”
The proof is in the pudding, check out 200 plus images on my Flickr photostream:
Despite me being a m4/3rd convert (via an OMD EM5), owning a Sony NEX5 and even being a DSLR user (via a Canon EOS 7D), I’ll go as far to say that the Fuji X system (in particular the Fuji XE1) pretty easily has the legs on the “big boys” .
In my humble opnion the Fuji XE1 is by far the best Compact Camera System (CCS) out there and even betters any of the current ASP-C DSLR’s on the market, it really is that good.
