Helena, glad your XE-1 is working out for you.

I got one last week and while the 14mm is indeed an excellent lens, I've been finding myself a little disappointed by the IQ. I've had a Xpro and X100 before so knew what to expect, and its quite good overall, better than many cameras, but just doesn't have the sharpness or resolution of the Zeiss paired with that 24meg sensor.

Also it just feels a bit more sluggish than the RX1. I didn't think of the RX1 as a speedy camera, and its not in terms of AF, but as far as image review, shutter lag etc, its near instant where the Fuji's take a little longer.

Also while still small, they make the RX1 seem downright tiny.

Sorry to hear that! When you are happy with something you hope that others will be too, but we all have different wants, needs and standards.

All I care about is lens rendering, overall clarity, colors, bokeh and things like that. As long as my basic requirements are met (and they are with almost any camera there is now) I don't care about things like sharpness, resolution, artefacts etc.. If something looks great in natural size on my 24" screen and decent when zooming in, I'm happy.

I haven't noticed any slugginess, but I'm a slow photographer, so that may be it. Also, I have a fast SD card. Maybe that helps a bit?

Bob, nice set again! Interesting reflections in the third one.

I'm getting my RX1 from Amazon Warehouse Deals tomorrow and can't wait. I was too quick to rush to judgement last time and don't think I fully appreciated and understood how to use it. It was like handing the keys to a Ferrari to someone who just learned to drive. Since then I've been using the NEX-6 and Zeiss 24 and yearn for more. I tried the XE-1 with kit zoom and 35, and while nice, didn't seem like that much of an improvement over the 6. I was expecting something revolutionary in terms of the so-called 'Fuji colors'. And while most seem to appreciate the retro design, I didn't like some things, most of which are just silly. Like when you delete an image, the scrolling of the deletion and the EVF seemed much lagging than the 6, which it is. Also the rear LCD was that much worse than the 6.

I'm going all in on the RX1 this time, ordering more accessories to make this one work for me. I even have 2 sets of grips coming in to evaluate and find the best fit for me, I'm planning an overseas trip in October so hopefully the next 3 months will give me enough time to hone my skills some.

I hope you find joy. 2nd time is the charm. I'm not sure if this happens with most high end cameras but I am amazed at how many forums I read where someone is buying the RX1 for a 2nd or even 3rd time. For me, it took several months to truly understand its capabilities... and likely a lifetime to master.

yes, they do, rj - that colour integrity paired with ever reliable bokeh, which the EVF renders so well before the shot is taken. Reminds me of the CY 35/1.4 but with much more versatility.

I've long thought that Zeiss tailor lens output to target cameras, as in the ZE range, but for the RX1 they had complete knowledge of the only sensor the lens would *ever be used with*. For long time shooters, imagine designing a lens if it was only ever going to be used withg Velvia 50, you would get a tighter design brief.

And it shows in the harmony of the output. And no one has produced anything like it in the eight months since it was announced.

Rsolti, I really like that gate with the reflection and shadows.
Bob, such nice clarity in those train station shots.

rsolti - lovely series.

Here's two sunsets and on sunrise (last image). The pano was made using the in-camera pano mode.

Jochen, absolutely tremendous light and great detail.
RJ, I really like the sunsets. The lens flare reflecting off the water is very cool.

Not sure if I am the only one, but within the last couple of days when I click the Flickr arrow to generate the BB Code so I can copy and post to this forum, I am now only seeing my original file size as the only option, vs. a drop-down of smaller sizes. I don't think I want to post 6K x 4K pixel images here. Ever since Flickr went to 1TB storage I figured I would upload full size files.

Anyone else have this issue?
