| p.49 #8 · Sigma DP2 Merrill: Have any of you tried it? |
Luis, the E-E1 can do macro. I was a full-frame shooter for all the years that they have been around (and 20 years more with film). The X-E1 is, for me, the first non-FF camera whose images I really like.
I use the excellent CV 12/5.6 on an adapter for wide; Fuji's 35/1.4 as my normal (and it has been favourably compared with Leica's best lenses; all I know is that it's good enough for me), and a number of Rokkors for medium tele, and the 60/2.4 for macro.
One X-E1 is heavier than one DP Merrill, but less than two. And the X-E1's EVF works well—as well as an optical finder? No, but well enough.
And there will be excellent raw processors very soon, too.
Or, for you: a DP2 Merrill and an X-E1. This is the choice I have made, and am happy with it.
