Hi, my first time here and my first post. I don't own any Fujifilm camera, yet, but after a lot of research and careful study of the X-E1, and even X-Pro1, more and more I get a powerful urge to buy one. What really impresses me and draws me to this system is the OUTSTANDING image quality, I'n my opinion is really close to Full Frame DSLR, that's by far beyond any APS-C sensor at the moment, in terms of ISO performance, sharpness level and color accuracy, impressively small size and weight and the "manual" style of operation of aperture and shutter speed. I currently own a humble Panasonic G2 which has served me courageously (we had some "dangerous" adventures that ended up with a lot of scratches on both of us) and, almost, without fail. But time has come to retire my camera and switch for a better one. I use it with, almost, only manual lenses (Revuenon 50mm f 1.8, Hanimar 135mm f 2.8 and Compact 70-210mm f 4.5-5.6) so manual focus and aperture control is something I got used to it (but not mastered it yet). But I love to control the aperture with a ring on the lens and it reminds me when I use to shoot film when I was a kid (but not much unfortunately). Now the issue that I have: I don't find that necessary, or usefulness, of the hybrid OVF (due to inaccuracy of the frame lines and the lower quality of the EVF compared to X-E1) to go for the X-Pro1, and I could save some money with the X-E1. But there are some things that I would like from Fujifilm to do and/or address and please don't take this as an wining or talking ill of the camera, there are just honest opinions that, I think, would make this great camera even better: *Why not make the top part of both X-E1 and X-Pro1 brass so it would make it even more classy, personalized and just beautiful to perfection ? *Could it be possible to make the EVF a little bigger in size (not pixels), we know it's possible just look at how small Sony's NEX are and how big the EVF's are. *Higher resolution on the, future, X-E2's LCD for better manual focus when magnifying, I don't think the cost would be that high since more and more entry level DSLR and MILC cameras have 921K 3" screens. *Would you PLEASE put a tilt LCD on the back for better use on high and low angles, it wouldn't make the camera much more think then it is already, just look at the Sony's NEX and Olympus OM-D, they are really thin and with tilt screens *I understand that Fujifilm want's the controls to be as simple as possible but at least make them more customizable, at least, so we can have more control on the settings of the camera, for example: is it really all that hard to make the 4 way directional buttons adjustable to some settings like: WB, ISO, Metering, AF, Drive Mode, Timer, Flash Control, Film Modes, Color Profiles, etc. There are so many option, so much opportunities here and they are waisted on a Macro Mode which is useless on X-E1 because of the dedicated, only, EVF. One Fun. button is just not enough in my opinion and the need to pick inside your nose to change the Drive Mode or to Playback your last image when using the EVF is just silly. I just hate all that waisted opportunity for more control to the photographer without taking his eye of the EVF. *In the last several years there where major advances in the battery technology and the competition has better battery life with even smaller cameras. Fujifilm please fix this by putting a better battery in the camera and optimize your power consumption more because I can't possibly thing why the X-Trans sensor could consume much more power then the Sony NEX's or Samsung NX's with the same sensor size and smaller size body. *I think this one would be really conflicting with other's opinion but I very rarely change the EV Comp. on my camera (always keep it at 1/3 on - for more speed and save highlights) and it would be genius to change the +/- 2 EV dial to an ISO one. I think that would be more useful but I highly doubt that will ever going to happen. *Please make ISO 100 reachable in Auto ISO because even 1 stop of higher ISO would push the shutter speed beyond 1/4000 with the 35mm f 1.4 in daylight and overexpose the shot without resorting to dial down the EV and/or use ND filters. And it would be nice to be able to set a minimum shutter speed for Auto ISO at each increments for better control over sharpness since IS is available only to zoom lenses. *It would be nice if they, Fujifilm, up the game at recording movies. It's definitely a shot first film later kind of camera but I don't think it would cost to much for them to build a better movie recording option even if it's not at the level of Panasonic GH2/3 or Canon 5D Mark II/IIIm think like more frame rate options, better AF (it's possible, just look at the Micro Four Thirds capabilities), less rolling shutter effect, higher bitrate, more control of the settings in and out of recording, etc. That's about it of what I can think of at 1 in the morning. Some of this thinks can be solved in a firmware update, some in the next generation of cameras, but it doesn't hurt to ask them, if we can then we should. Don't get me wrong I do like the X-E1, a lot, enough to make me buy one this summer, if nothing will appear, at least, in the rumor mill. I'm not bothered by sluggish AF (I focus manually on my landscape and macro shots) or by lack of lens options (give me high quality/performance with useful FL range and I will adapted at what I have). What are the thing that you would like/need to make you want/buy a Fujifilm X camera or just want to see in the next generation to make a great camera into a legendary one.
