I have used most of DSLR, but I intuitively felt this is the one when looking at some sample images in foreign site before X-Pro1 is available. And I bought the camera on its release date. The image quality is better than I have imagined, and all of my dissatisfaction I felt in other cameras was cured. The camera is ideal for me in terms of resolution, color reproduction, high ISO performance, and now I own three X-E1. I’m also looking forward to the future products.
