Thanks for your review, I enjoyed reading!
May I ask for some additional comments:
- I assume you mean the M1 is more responsive. Does the E1 compensate this with more direct controls?
- Which one do you like better for using alt lenses, M1 or E1?
- Do you use the AF mode selector at the front of the E1/E2 and do you miss it on the M1?
- Do you use the AF button often on your E1/E2 when it is in MF mode, and do you miss it on the M1?
Thanks!

Your 4 Qs:

1: yes, the M1 is more responsive. The controls are not an issue on either camera. The E1 handles a little better due to its larger size and it of course has the EVF. The M1 is easier to focus though in MF. The rear screen shows focus peaking better than the E1. The E2 is better than both in all respects, though.

2: fine with both. Like I said, M1 is a little easier to focus, and I like the ability to magnify on the m1 while writing to a card, but E1 has the EVF. Probably a slight edge to the M1 for adapted lenses. Now that I have the E2, I prefer that hands down.

3: Yes and yes.

4: no and no. I use it occasionally, but don't miss it.

Some images taken last evening, November 13, 2013 just before sunset at Lock Ridge Park in Alburtis, PA. All images taken with my tripod mounted X-E1 camera and Minolta CLE MC 40mm f2 M-Rokkor lens. All images also processed in LR5.3RC.

Looks like Fuji now has some instant savings on glass with the purchase of camera bodies or kits.

$200 savings on the 14mm f2.8, $100 savings on the 23 f1.4, $200 savings on the 55-200 and $150 savings on the 35 f1.4

Kind of frustrating I'm sure for everyone like myself, who just had preorders filled and shipped last week!

Might be worth giving Adorama a call and complaining and seeing if maybe I can still get a discount on the 23mm f1.4 which was shipped 2 weeks ago.

I've already got the 14mm, but might be interested in the 55-200 for $500. Only thing is that it is sort of a big lens on the smaller XE bodies. Not too unbalanced but still pretty substantial.

Given I'd reach for my 70-200 f2.8 or 70-300 VR on my D3 if/when I wanted to shoot anything action related, the 55-200 would probably be more relegated to just long landscape shooting.

Might consider something like a legacy 135mm compact prime like a Minolta for those rare times I wanted a compressed landscape shot and obviously it would be far cheaper.....

Still though, good savings for those who haven't purchased a XE-2 yet, but kind of a slap in the face to everyone who preordered!

I mean what was Fuji's thinking ? Announce a camera, get all the loyal users to put in preorders, then take forever to actually ship the black bodies and kits. Then....less than a week after they filled those orders, announce a bunch of discounts ??

Not cool....not cool at all....

In the past I've had great luck with having B&H credit me in this kind of situation.

Wow - it took 6 months after the release of the X-E1 before Fuji offered lens discounts… I was kind of waiting for them to do this again, but it looks like they want to be aggressive to get more cameras into people's hands.

I would bet Adorama would credit you the difference if you called them, otherwise you can threaten to return and then reorder, and your return can then only be sold open-box.

I am sure Helen Oster will chime in, or just contact her directly.

Could not resist playing with Analog Efex after I noticed I even had this filter…!

Jordan - after your glowing review of the 14mm, I am wondering if I am the only person who is remotely curious about the continually delayed 10-24. I like the idea behind the zoom, and f/4 doesn't bother me since it has OIS, but I am wondering if it's pointless to wait, when the 14mm is discounted and seems to be universally praised.

That Analog Efex Pro looks pretty fun, will have to read up about it. Really like the way it handles the color


Yes, hopefully Adorama will help me (and everyone else out) as I don't even have my camera in my hands yet. Looks like they shipped/billed me Friday and the promotion went into effect either Saturday or just this morning

The 10-24 would interest me more if it wasn't so darn big. It's the size of a standard DSLR ultra wide zoom, and I don't really have space in my small bags for that. The 55-200 is already pretty big, but as a one off, I'm ok with that. The 56/1.2 isn't going to be tiny, so I also wouldn't want a bulky UWA.

Optically, I'd imagine it'll be pretty good, but the 14 is phenomenal, so it'll be pretty hard to be better than that.

Amazon sells the 55-200 for $499 as a standalone purchase. I couldn't resist.

Don't think that is the regular price, looks like a special they are running today only as all the other major retailers are still listing at $699.

May have been a pricing error, so I'd say get one while you can if your in the market, great price for sure

I purchased one. If you buy it with an X camera, you get $200 more off the original price. That's $299. Amazon has an extra 4% reward.
