Don't know if this is the best place to post this, but...
I m tempted to get a X-M1...
I currently have 2 x Canon 5Dc, a 24mm 1.4 L II, a 50mm Yashica ML 50mm 1.7 & Tair 300 mm f4.5 (m42).
I was tempted by the 6D, but it's too expensive and I don't want to sell 2 bodies + add money to get just one body (even though the 6D is the perfect body for me,for what I do).
So after reconsidering, I realize that I need a very compact & potent body for travelling with the motorcycle (and not only) but also a a body that can cope with shooting @ events, not just a gizmo to use on the bike.
So i've thought I'd sell one of the two 5Dc and put some money and get a mirrorless.
The mirrorless will be perfect for landscape/stationary subjects, photo sessions, etc..
I was thinking about Nex-5N ,since it's decent enough and cheap.
Then I thought since i'm getting a mirrorless, i'd like one with good IQ & wi fi.
THe battle now is between Sony Nex-6 and Fuji X-E1/ X-A1 /X-M1.
I've seen that the Nex-6 has the better display, better video functions/controls, but in terms of pure IQ, the Fuji system is a bit better (at high ISO & dynamic range).
So it's gonna be a Fuji. The X-Pro 1 is too expensive, so we rule that one out.
Then we have the X-E1, X-A1 & X-M1.
From what I get, the X-E1 and X-M1 have the same senzor, the X TRANS (without the AA filter), and the X-A1 has the CMOS aps-c senzor.
Now I narrowed my choices between the X-E1 and X-M1.
I've seen the reviews & the specs but can somebody tell me, exactly, what sensor lies in X-Pro1, X-E1, X-A1, X-M1, X-E2 ? and what processor?
The X-E1 has an EVF, and those dials on top (for exposure compensation and ISO), the X-M1 has no viewfinder whatsoever (and has a more plastic feel) (i don't know exactly the build of the X-E1).
In terms of Image Quality, does the X-E1 & X-M1 have the same sensor & processor? are they the same in terms of ISO figures, noise at high ISO?
They're priced pretty close (body vs body), with the X-M1 being a bit cheaper.
I plan on using it (which ever I will get) with manual lenses (such as the Yashica ML 50mm 1.7, and other lenses) since MF lenses are far cheaper and provide very good IQ.
The 24m 1.4L II will remain glued to my remaining 5D, and I plan to shoot the Fuji X alongside the 5D.
I'd be tempted to get the Fuji X with a lens (kit lens perhaps), because if I want to use it as a travel body (with the bike), there would be no logic to attach to it a large / huge manual focus lens.... but I'm not sure about the IQ rendered by the Fuji X lenses. (perhaps one can suggest one or two fuji x lenses (not too expensive)).
Sorry about the long read, but who ever got this far with the read, perhaps can enlighten me
(thanks in advance :P )
