Gah this thread really makes me want to finally make the switch to this system.
I am so over DSLRs. The only thing holding me to my 5D2s is video, which I've been doing more and more of.
I need to give this some serious thought.
Really wonderful work in here though everyone, very inspirational!
Agree with justruss above: The X-E1 is *NOT* a replacement for a DSLR for most. It's a different kind of camera, with a different intent. In it's current form, it's complimentary to other systems (DSLR, P&S, whatever). It's a 'deliberate' camera (as is often described) which begs the user to learn it's idiosyncrasies, and to shoot with it the way it was designed to be used. Modern DSLRs are continually "improved" to the lowest common denominator, evolving into the photographic equivalent of an appliance. The Fuji forces you to work harder ... and the image quality it delivers is the reward.
Note that I've been shooting Canon DSLRs as my main tool since 2003, and currently own a 5D3 with all L lenses. While out shooting with the X-E1 this week, I found myself engaged in the process and loving every minute of using the Fuji. I wished, however, with nearly every push of the shutter that the 5D3's guts and performance were embodied in the X-E1 experience.
All that said, if X100s improvements make their way to the X Pro 1 and X-E1 replacements -- as is widely expected -- and the lens roadmap pans out ... then the interchangeable-lens X system bodies will be closer to a true DSLR substitute for many.
