Hi ! Thanks to Rico for all the information that is being made available to existing and new users of Fuji camera especially regards the aspects that are specific to the Fuji cameras! I am requesting some info [even links will do ] in the direction of the foliage smearing that was seen in the APS-C sensored mirrorless cameras and now the waxy skin appearence .There is a entire thread in the DPR that is agog with the discussion about the phenomenon and has users hoping that the defect will be addressed in a firmware update ! Here is the link http://www.dpreview.com/forums/thread/3591429?page=3 I am planning to acquire the XA-1 /XM-1and will be obliged if I can be helped to find my way around these obstacles ! Thank u in advance for the responses that may come !
