p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · 2018 and X-M1 still relevant?


Hi,
Have to chose between XM-1 and EOS M6.
Using original M right now and naturally wanted to upgrade to M6 but the prices of older Fuji bodies and their lenses are pretty reachable. So in terms of AF and shot to shot speed - does X-M1 will provide more pleasant experience than the original M?
My initial plan was to add 11-22 UWA to the M6 as I already have 22 + adapted 50 but with Fuji, UWA will cost me much more... so X-M1 + 16-50 (as temporary WA solution) + 35/1.4 is my new desire.

Can someone give me an objective opinion on this matter? I choose M-X1 as the most cheapest body option, as I want these marvelous lenses...

PS. Downloaded a bunch of X-M1 and M6 RAW files and will play with them in LR... just to check this X-Trans thing.

FWIW, I picked up a used X-M1 last year to use as a “try out” camera while I was still shooting Nikon. That little body combined with the 27mm pancake produced images that were enough to convince me to sell all the Nikon gear and get into Fuji. I wouldn’t have it as my only camera, but I do still have it.

Thanks! Sounds promising...
As for "kit" zoom - I've checked many reviews and galleries with both 16-50 and 18-55 and the 2.8-4.0 looks MUCH better, although I will surely miss the wide end. Does the 18-55 balances well on M1 body?

BTW I've played a bit with M1 RAW files and LR 5.xx and it didn't go well.
May be someone knows another source for M1 RAW files as the photographyblog samples are too gloomy. Ill try newer LR version and also Phase One.

The 18-55 is a little front heavy on the M1, it’s okay, but it balances better with primes. As far as raw files, I use Iridient.

the X-M1 runs the same sensor as the X-E2, X-T1 and X-T10 series so IQ wise, it will be good.

the 16-50 kit lens is decent, stop it down to f/8 for sharpness

this combo is very small and light for landscape, an X-M2 with X-Trans III sensor would be great.

Look at some of the photographers in 500px running a Canon Rebel DSLR from 12 years ago with the kit lens...

It's not the gear that will be the limiting factor.

how is this a fair comparison?

The EOS - m6 is trending on ebay at Trending at $575.54.

The X-M1 is between $250-$350, and compare the X-E2.. or X-E2s

I didn't try to compare. I already have 22 and 50mm so the price of Fuji X system will cost me more than Canon M.

I'm still trying to figure out if X-M1 (or X-A1) will give me MORE in terms of AF speed and accuracy in comparison to original Canon's M. As for glass - it's pretty clear that Fuji has it covered... although the UWA is much more expensive and heavy than Canon's EF-M.

Perhaps try renting one, with a lens? I would really consider the X-E2, it can be found used at a deal with a little time.

Renting is not an option unfortunately...
Yes, I'm also considering the X-E2 and X-T10. Thanks!

No, it does not. The X-M1 has the same 16MP non-phase detect X-Trans sensor as the X-E1 and X-Pro1, and does not benefit from the improvements with PDAF. AF is fine, but it isn't 'fast', and it won't do a darn thing for tracking motion.

That said, when I owned one, I liked it a fair bit. It's a good little body, but I'd try to snag an X-E2 or X-T10. Also, if you want an X-E1, I could sell you mine for pretty cheap.

Ok, I have decided on X-E2 or x-T10 as a starter body + 18-55 & 35/1.4. I know I will miss the UWA (like a cheap ef-s 10-18 or ef-m 11-22) but after all it's all about $$$.
Yes... Just now, a few hours after i found a good deal on x-e2s kit, my dearest state have decided i owe them about $2,000+... So i have some time now ))
