Lan11, it's a shame you find the camera shoddy and marginal. Whilst I agree the RAW options are very bad at the moment that's about the only bad thing I can say about it. In my opinion, the camera is a joy to use as soon as you learn it in & out which I have over the past eight months of using it regularily. You really aren't contributing to this thread in a helpful way, and if you still have something unsaid, you should open a new thread where you may complain as much as you'd like.
I shoot RAW + JPG at the moment, and most of the time I end up using the JPGs as they look better than the RAWs when run through the current version of Lightroom. Fuji knows JPGs very well - skin tones and tones in general look very pleasing.
As the battery life is a bit bad, I'd advise buyers to get at least one more battery. You can get cheap knock-offs on Amazon that work just as well (in my experience).
Some people have trouble focusing. However, after the 2.0 update, I find the AF performance of my XP1 to be very good indeed. Learn how parallax works, and how contrast-detect AF differs from phase-detect. Consider when it will be sensible to use manual focus and zone focus instead, i.e. when small apertures are being used and plenty of DoF is available.
