    I've been away from this site for a while after selling my X100S (loved using the camera, hated the look of the files). I've been considering a smaller body with a tilting screen to use primarily with my legacy glass. Initially I thought I was sold on a Sony NEX, but then Nic (luckypenguin) reminded me over on SC that the X-A1 doesn't have the Xtrans sensor so I'm back with a couple questions:

    1. How well does the peaking work? Peaking as a MF aid is essential to me since I intend to use it almost exclusively with legacy glass. If anyone has experience with this camera and a Sony NEX and could give their opinion as to how they compare, that would be wonderful

    2. Is the exposure preview WYSIWYG? It wasn't on the X-E1 or X100S when I had them, although a preview was available with a half press of the shutter. However, my understanding (correct me if I'm wrong) is that peaking goes away when you half press the shutter.

    Thanks in advance for any assistance.

    Exposure preview in the EVF is now a feature with v2.10 firmware on the X-E1...
