As you know I'm using the X-Pro1.
My wife now also want's to enter a more serious photography. She has an excellent eye, but does not yet know anything about photography like shutter speed, aperture, manual, ISO, dynamic range, etc. In the post she used a cheap compact camera but she is not longer satisfied with the results. So, it seems clear to get a Fuji, but which one?
I can get here in Switzerland new X-M1 with the kit lens for the same price as a new X-A1 with the double lens kit ... Or is even a used X-E2...Show more →
It may take a while to find a used X-E2. I would suggest a X-M1 if she's ok with no viewfinder. I find the X-M1 with 27 pancake is perfect for my wife. Especially since upgrading from a cell phone camera, she's used to composing on an LCD screen. That combined with the wifi, tilt screen, is perfect for her. I did add the half case from Fuji to help with handling.
Sharing the same sensor as your X-Pro1 might tempt you to borrow it on days when you want to go ultra light.
